Obama is not Bernie Sanders!
Posted, Monday, May 30, 2016 23:11 pm
In 2010, Obama extended the expiring Bush tax cuts for the wealthy. We should have been out there raging. Bernie Sanders filibustered the issue for 8 hours on the floor of Congress and CNN broadcasted it. But there were not enough of us standing behind him. We need to do better. We are the revolution. We thought Obama would be the game changer. No, Obama is not Bernie Sanders. I think he was carefully chosen by the Democratic establishment to continue the secret TPP negotiations that is finally revealed itself seven years later.
Pres. Obama promised everything!
Posted, Monday, May 30, 2016 23:20 pm
President Barack Obama promised everything and appeased everybody —including the banks and corporations who forked out $526 million to get him elected!
None, but none of his promises to the American people were fulfilled, and his 'innovative' way to resolve the healthcare crisis is now in doldrums after some healthcare corporations hiked up the costs and others left the patients stranded and walked if the scheme!
-He waged wars not unlike George W Bush, destroying Libya, and if it wasn't for the American people who reigned him in he would have been today in Syria.
-The US Army is expanding its presence in Iraq, after two years of failure of the military to stop ISIS.
-He is collaborating with AL-Qaeda in Syria calling them 'moderate opposition' while he is arranging to partition Syria - exactly what the Neocons planned!!
-He is stoking up the Cold War in a manner his predecessor wouldn't dare, amassing troops and nuclear missives on the borders of Russia!!
-He is planning for a conflict with China over the South China Sea not by provocative flights only but in arming Vietnam to the teeth (using the American taxpayers' treasure) with a rabid desire to create a majority conflict in the region!
This president may well go down in history as one of the worst.
In his tenure, the army of the unemployed could only get jobs at wages comparable to those in the 1990s. And many already gave up their search!
It is in his rebut more too, that the majority of the population (51%) today live at the near poverty income of $30,000 per year!
Not many Americans would be unhappy to see this hapless president go, although a Trump or a Hillary would probably bring us down to our knees!
Obama: Two more terms for GWB!

Obama's legacy is extending the Bush Administration two extra terms.
Obama: Return the Nobel Peace Prize!

Obama: Return your totally undeserved Nobel Peace Prize.
Obama: The candidate of “Hope and Change”!
Posted, Tuesday, May 31, 2016 14:40 pm
To the American public traumatized by the Bush Presidency:
Wall Street and corporate America poured huge amount of money to market an African American man, Barack Obama, as the candidate of ‘Hope and Change’ in 2008.
However, once in office, President Barack Obama retained Bush’s Secretary of Defense, Robert Gates and tapped Lawrence Summers, who as President Clinton’s Treasury Secretary pushed for the repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act, as the Director of the White House National Economic Council.
Not only has President Obama kept Guantanamo Bay detention camp open, he has expanded the use of Predator drones for extra-judicial assassinations and the prosecution of government whistleblowers like Edward Snowden and Chelsea Manning who heroically tried to expose the secrecy and deception that underlie crony capitalism and the ‘War on Terror’. [Chelsea Manning is serving a 35-year prison sentence, while Edward Snowden had to seek asylum in Russia.]
Evo Morales, President of Bolivia, was asked in 2010, what difference he saw between Bush and Obama. He succinctly answered, “If something is changed, it’s just the color of the president that’s changed.”
Too flattering to Obama?

This article is far too flattering to Obama. He is the true compatriot of Kissinger, his fellow war-criminal Nobel Peace Prize Winner.
Neoliberals and Neocons.
Posted, Tuesday, May 31, 2016 18:00 pm
From day 1, Barack Obama brought into his cabinet all the leftover Clinton neoliberals, and a few Bush neocons. That means that from day 1, Obama had an agenda and never had any intention of honoring his campaign promises or the people who elected him.
Then came Obamacare —a corporate-friendly law that didn't cover even half the 44 million who were uninsured. That was followed by disaster after disaster. Yet, the idiot liberals kept blathering that Obama couldn't get anything done because of racism. No, he couldn't get anything done because he's a warmonger and Wall Street shill. The racism smear is starting to get as old as the "anti-Semitic" smear against those who criticize Israel.
A well-balanced article.
Posted, Tuesday, May 31, 2016 23:00 pm
This is a really well-balanced review of presidency; it highlighted the significant positive achievement of Obamacare. Although this is eclipsed by major errors, which have resulted in a global refugee crisis, increased risk of terrorism, global suffering and increased hardship for poorest Americans.
A fourth possibility!
Posted, Tuesday, May 31, 2016 23:26 pm
In conclusion, I'll provide a fourth possibility.
If we had an electorate that desired change, consequences would have been different. If we had not an opposition party that was so bent on seeing the failure of President Obama, I suspect consequences would have been far different.
Congress writes the laws, not...
Victory for Bernie!

Great article; and very sad! Victory for Bernie, for the great good it would do!
Obama was raised in Indonesia!
Posted, Thursday, June 2, 2016 20:00 pm
The denial from the world gives me a headache!! The world only needs to know one thing: Obama was raised in Indonesia with Sunni's. From that, everything Obama has done as President has been because of that Sunni upbringing.
