Poor Barack Obama. Here’s our godlike president not only having to deal with headwinds left by George W. Bush, but being scrutinized by the lowly likes of Fox News and Conservative Republicans. Hasn’t he made clear to everyone it’s these seriously flawed antagonists blocking his brilliance? “The One” doesn’t make mistakes. Those who disagree with him make mistakes. It’s enough to make Obama whine, seemingly endlessly, every time he doesn’t get “his own way”.
Barack’s childish blame game not withstanding, here are some Obama policies, scandals, and programs, those aforementioned, blasphemous, non-believers have had nothing to do with:
Benghazi– Bush, Conservative Republicans, and Fox News didn’t force Obama to:
Dump Ambassador Stevens into a woefully insecure death trap.
Go missing (grabbing some shut eye?) during the height of the battle.
Not send help of any kind to save the lives of 4 brave Americans.
Head off to Las Vegas for a campaign fundraiser within hours of the deaths being confirmed.
Spend days blaming an obscure internet video and “spontaneous riot” for the deadly, very well coordinated attack.
Come up completely empty on his solemn promise that justice would be done on behalf of those murdered Americans.
Syria– Bush, Conservative Republicans, and Fox News didn’t make Obama:
Say the use of chemical weapons was a “Red Line” that shouldn’t be crossed.
Subsequently claim “I didn’t set a red line. The world set a red line.”
Give control of the WMD negotiations to Syria’s “Godfather” and benefactor, Vladimir Putin.
Russia– Bush, Conservative Republicans, and Fox News didn’t coerce Mr. Obama to:
Candidly offer unsolicited “flexibility” to Putin.
Insist the former Soviets not grant asylum to Edward Snowden.
Reward Russians ignoring the Snowden red line by making them key “diplomatic players” in the volatile and critical Mid East.
IRS Scandal– Bush, Conservative Republicans, and Fox News didn’t insist Barack:
Target Tea Party and religious groups for over the top, unwarranted scrutiny.
Have the head of the Internal Revenue Service visit the White House over 100 times.
Say the scandal was “outrageous”, people would be held “fully accountable”, and he had “no patience with it”.
Show the patience of Job by ignoring the “intolerable” wrongdoing for….now going on 5 months.
ObamaCare– Bush, Conservative Republicans, and Fox News didn’t browbeat President Obama to:
Lie about critical aspects of the new health care law.
Falsely promise families they would see a $2,500 reduction in their insurance premiums.
Declare, “If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. Period.”
Pledge, “If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. Period.”
Vow, “No one will take it away. No matter what.”
Raise taxes on medical devices needed by the elderly, children, the disabled, and Wounded Warriors.
Exempt Congress and their staffers from the law they wrote.
Remove the patient out of pocket spending cap supposed to control costs on co-pays and deductibles.
Dramatically increase deductibles and explode patients’ out of pocket costs.
Promote a law one of its own architects described as a “train wreck”.
Shill for a statute that one of its biggest supporters in the Senate recently claimed “is beyond comprehension”.
Sign a law that his usually blindly loyal union buddies claim “…will destroy the….40 hour work week, that is the backbone of the American middle class.”
Sign a law those same union pals promise will, “destroy the….wellbeing of….millions of hardworking Americans.”
Honestly, George W. Bush, Fox News, and Conservative Republicans couldn’t have been any farther away from the above referenced, (only) partial list of Barack Blunders. Actually, his incessant wailing and fault defaulting has made our first Black president even more historical. Barack Hussein Obama now also ranks as our very first Crybaby in Chief.
