Too Funny. Far Left Finally Discovers Obama Is a Weak Leader

After a year of disastrous policies, skyrocketing unemployment numbers, and tripling of the national deficit, the Far Left has finally realized that President Pantywaist sucks as a leader.

The kooks at Fire Dog Lake were looking for some sort of Churchillian “progressive” but wound up with a 21st century Chamberlain instead.

The times call for a leader of Churchillian or Rooseveltian magnitude; what we have instead is a cautious risk-averse manager. Bold progressives must fill the leadership vacuum in order to restore and support a vibrant US middle class…

BHO’s decision to embrace modest stimulus enraged libertarians and conservatives who wanted to let the Free Market reign and disappointed progressive liberals who identified the need for a momentous government employment initiative that would restart and sustain the nation’s economic engine while preparing our infrastructure for the next generation in a changing energy environment.

BHO’s demonstrated personal need to achieve consensus during crisis and his failure to assert bold leadership on economic recovery and employment set the stage for the health care debate. In order to avoid alienating big campaign donors he allowed the playing field to shift to a focus on major health insurers and pharmaceutical companies (with their incestuous big bank brothers and sisters cheering from the sidelines). They were able, with the complicity of White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emmanuel, to exploit BHO’s self-imposed Christmas 2009 deadline and his apparently congenital aversion to conflict (expressed as the goal of a “bipartisan” bill, which he did not achieve anyway!).

It took a while but the far left has finally figured out that we’re stuck with a ditherer and waffler for president. Instead of a Roosevelt we get Jimmy Carter the sequel.
It’s going to be a long 3 years.

At least Obama still has the state-run media to fluff his pillows.

    I’m with Glenn Reynolds on this. . .at this point, Carteresque is a Best Case Scenario. I feel like he will make Carter happy by slam dunking Worst President Ever.

    Using an old axiom;

    There are no old bold pilots –

    There are no poor smart democrats.

    They don’t call him “President Pantywaist” in London because of his granite determination and boundless courage. In fact, President Bows-A-Lot seems to have a spine of pure custard.

    Has anybody noticed if Nancy Pelosi lips are moving when he gives a speech? Something to look for at the State of the Union…

    Why its a Gol Dern miracle! The left and the right both agree that Obama sucks big time. Weak abroad and a dictator wannabe at home. When the Chi-Coms have to tell us the world can’t afford America’s debt and still he goes on spending…there’s a screw loose somewhere.

    Its nice to see Obama is going on a much needed vacation (insert sarcasm here) to stay in an 8.2 Million house in Hawaii which he hinted he might buy — while the Obamamedia tells us that there is no stigma attached to accepting Food Stamps. With so many Americans hurting — he never fails to rub salt on our wounds.

    Gitmo not to close, Obummer said — thus breaking more campaign promises. It is quite possible he will not make good on these issues. Next to take 1/6 of the USA economy under Obummer’s control and wipe out the USA economy and start a major world-wide financial meltdown. During this time, Obummer will dither, wither, and take expensive vacations on tax payers’ monies and proclaim it is the evil republicans economy and all Bush’s fault. In fact, Obummer the Dummmer will proclaim that for the next 1,000 anything that happens negative will be blamed on Bush — it was and is always his fault. This is because Obummer announced he was the Massiah.

    “At least Obama still has the state-run media to fluff his pillows.”

    It’s time we removed that perk. I’m tired of complaining. I want to do something – and 2010 is too far away. What can we do now that won’t be ignored or marginalized?

    Email, call, fax or visit the media and their editors (TV, radio, newspapers, magazines, etc.). There seems to be a weakening of the Obama messiah worship in some, let’s exploit it.

    Hold pro-America, Conservative rallies at local TV stations.

    By MAIL cancel your subscription to your local MSM propaganda rag. Tell them why. Note who their advertisers are and send a few of the bigger ones a copy of your cancellation letter (be sure to cc these advertisers on your letter). Tell these advertisers you will not patronize them any longer because they are supporting political propaganda which you object to.

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    It’s not just that Obie’s a rotten leader. Seems to me a lot of the population simply don’t like or agree with what he wants to do. Socializing medicine, expanding government control and spending, and groveling and kowtowing to evil regimes and religions is simply un-American, and most people know it.

  • jonyjoe101

    Will at least a great man (Churchill) is no longer in the whitehouse. Brave man should not be in the same house with cowards.

    No one will ever say that Obama was a brave man, he never served in the military but wants to be the commander in chief. He hides all his records, brave people have nothing to hide. He belittles his opponents, a sign of weakness.

    Need I go on and on.

    Where does Ginsberg get the idea that a totally socialist remake of the American economy will prosper the middle class?

    He’s surprised that “progressive” advocates of total Federal power once given the reins of government use that power to secure their position and enrich themselves and their partners. Only the whole of human history provides evidence that this is Standard Operating Procedure. The country the broke the mold is the one he’s insisting has to be remade.

    These people or mentally ill.

  • Hedgehog

    Sure, the Obamunist has his fluffers in the media, but fewer people are listening, watching or reading thier tripe. The left are angry because the Obamunist might blow their perfect storm, and the “middle class” might survive their onslaught. Kill the nightmare helath care fraud, and Obama will find people jumping ship faster than he can do ten reps in the gym. Cap & Tax should be dead, and the immigration scam will meet with unbelievable opposition. He has made his play, and the gambit might just fail.

    We could use about ten million tea-partiers marching on Washington demanding our house back. The Whitehouse is the people’s house. It should not house an enemy of the people, a communist sympathizer who features ornaments of Chairman Mao on his Christmas tree. A man who is so twisted inside that he employs an advocate of homosexual fisting as safe schools czar. A man who is destroying the economy and handing hundreds of billions over to his favorite clientele. Our government has descended to a dysfunctional tyrannical body that serves themselves at the expense of hardworking Americans…Get out of our house Obama!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Alana

    “Bold progressives must fill the leadership vacuum in order to restore and support a vibrant US middle class…”

    That’s a contradiction in terms.

    Everything “progressives” do is precisely to destroy the middle class.

    It’s practically the whole point.

    I’m confused… (must be old age)

    Is he an empty suit or a sock puppet? Or somehow both?

    Personally I think he’s a sock puppet for Soros but like a sock, doesn’t know it. I trade currencies and I can tell you people like Soros are making billions off the dollar this last year. When the Carteresque inflation hits next year they’ll absolutely move into the top 100 billionaires as the dollar craters.

    In the mean time, Barry and the First Wookie are living it up in Hawaii while unemployment payments are running out and food stamp usage is climing like a rocket. Can you say, “Shadow of Caligula?”

    Laps in security

    I wonder what the media would be saying if George Bush were still president.

    McCarthy also casts doubt on the efficacy of Obama’s approach to “militant extremism”:

    Hadn’t Abdulmutallab heard that we are closing Gitmo? Hadn’t he heard that we’re phasing out military-commissions so we can show the world that we give even the worst mass-murderers civilian trials with all the rights of American citizens? Hadn’t he heard that President Obama has banned torture (yes, yes, I know, actually Congress banned it 15 years ago — details, details …)? Hadn’t he heard that the president has called for “a new beginning” in America’s relationship with the Muslim world? Hadn’t he heard that this is our new, smarter strategy to safeguard the nation from man-caused disasters?

    Those are icy rhetorical questions, but McCarthy answers them nonetheless: “I suspect he’s heard all those things.”

    Obama’s Lost Face

    Why did Chinese premier Wen Jiabao choose to publicly humiliate Barack Obama at Copenhagen? In their eyes, and in those of much of the world, he has lost face, and with it, power and influence. While getting widespread play overseas, this story has been kept very quiet by our disinterested, nonpartisan media (I haven’t seen it mentioned in any major U.S. outlet).

    This is where the leftist liberal loons are beginning to discover the truth in the old adage “Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it.”.

    Liberals are children. Like children they live in a sheltered fantasyland where reality is the “monster under the bed” and they think that if they just wish hard enough the world will become some rainbow and Unicorn infested Utopia where everyone is singing “Kumbayah”. This is why children are not allowed to do “adult” things because they lack the capacity to reason and do not understand the concept that their actions have consequences, sometimes dire ones. We do not allow children to vote because of this, liberals should not be allowed to vote ever again.

  • Militant Conservative

    Lot of Ya’ll missing the mark. Obama is NOT stupid.
    He planned on this destruction that is happening. All he is doing is to weaken this country so it can be made anew. The TARP funds were a payoff to those that assisted him to power. Clock is ticking till next election which will be a landslide victory for the Democrats. (fraud will finally be in plain view, even to the dolts) Then whattaya gonna do??????

    It looks like Obamas leadership skills are so bad that Robert Mugabe of the Zimbabwe is actually a better chief executive.

    “Our government has descended to a dysfunctional tyrannical body that serves themselves at the expense of hardworking Americans…”

    Hardworking Americans are standing up. They are waking up and helping others to awake. Now we act. We must go to our primaries held soon (withing the next 2 weeks or month). Make sure no RINO is supported and yout local Tea Party is involved.

    Get together to support a conservative and watch our for ACORN. They are going to try to ‘franken’ your state. Don’t let them!
