He’s too humble. He isn’t the fourth best; he’s the best of all the best. At being an arrogant, pathological narcissist who is so in love with himself that all the failure in the world isn’t enough to make him question even for a moment that he is the messiah, and the only messiah with whom we should have to do.
|Obama is messiah|
Obama is reduced to making an argument that itself manifest his colossal God’s gift to not only women but hell, all mankind view of himself: he is saying that without him and his stimulus, we would have plunged into the Great Depression. Let's forget the fact that, when it comes to housing - the thing that created the economic collapse in 2008. We saw the hypocrisy of the excuses when the stimulus was such a failure that Obama stated claiming that he’d created “or saved” jobs.

The unemployment rate has gone down, but it has “gone down” with the massive caveat that nearly three million people are giving up and abandoning the workforce completely (which means they no longer count against Obama’s unemployment record) for everyone who actually finds a job.
The truth is that Obama has lost 2.5 million jobs since he took office. These jobs have simply ceased to exist under Obama, as measured by the labor participation rate. The truth is that if Obama were measured by the same labor participation rate that Bush was measured by when he left office, unemployment would be at over 17.3% according to an analysis by Reuters, rather than the 8.3% Obama is being lauded for by media propaganda. I mean, dang, even liberal Ezra Klein affirms that the real unemployment rate ought to be 15 percent.
Analysis, which was released on July 8, ranked the 20 states with the highest average unemployment through May 2011: the first column shows the actual unemployment rate over the labor force; the second column reflects the number of discouraged workers added to the unemployment rate (also compiled from Census Bureau data) and if you’re a teenager, life really sucks for you.
Obama has screwed all the people he promised that he would save. Even the reliably liberal Washington Post acknowledges that blacks have been set back decades under Obama’s misrule. Black unemployment is TWICE the national average under Obama, and even überüberlib Maxine Waters is saying that rabid black support for Obama is hurting the black community. And the black congressional caucus is tired of making excuses for this failed leader.
But during all of this time we’re not talking about the economy. It’s all a distraction. The economy is terrible. We are 11 million jobs down versus what we had before the botton dropped out in 2008, and quarterly growth is decreasing (because of the stimulus). He'll say anything in order not to discuss the economy!
The president’s biggest challenge is the unsustainable long-term fiscal imbalance, driven by fast-growing health care costs. Obama has said his health care initiative would be a big step toward fiscal reform because the changes he proposed would begin controlling costs for Medicare and Medicaid. He also promised to address the government’s third big entitlement program, Social Security, but Democratic Congressional leaders are opposed.
But the tax cuts and the domestic programs were squeezed after 2010, when the stimulus ran out. Now, Mr. Obama is under pressure to reduce annual budget deficits projected to average over $1 trillion a year through the next decade.
For a man that spent ten years of his life teaching the constitution, he sure seem to violate quite often.
In signing ACTA, Obama has leapfrogged over the U.S. Constitution, critics charge. The Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) was signed by the United States and several other countries on October 1 with little fanfare.
Which is part of the reason critics, constitutional scholars, and one Senator is challenging Obama’s constitutional right to sign this treaty.
The president has no independent constitutional authority over intellectual property or communications policy, and there is no long historical practice of making sole executive agreements in this area. To the contrary, the Constitution gives primary authority over these matters to Congress, which it charges with making laws that regulate foreign commerce and intellectual property.
