It is most certainly the most stressful job in the free world, but never has an American president been as self absorbed and narcissistic as President Barack Obama. Recently Obama spoke to a high priced Democratic fundraiser and touted his accomplishments as even loftier than many of his presidential predecessors, according to Newsmax.
He claims superior comparison with the likes of Franklin D. Roosevelt who helped bring an end to World War II and Abraham Lincoln who ended the horrors of slavery. Obama appears to be toking up again and looks to be acting a bit “crackish”, as his favorite Hollywood idealizer Jaime Foxx claimed about singer Whitney Houston on a Jay Leno Show and in his comedy routine. Foxx said the singer was not necessarily on the drug crack-cocaine but was acting “crackish.”
It seems clear that abysmal job performance is never a measurement and failure to deliver on commitments is never a consideration of President Obama – after he became the undeserving recipient of the Pulitzer Prize for Peace in 2009, just barely after he had moved his furniture into the White House. Therefore, Obama believed others would be as easily snowed as the Norwegian Nobel Prize Selection Committee was.
Let’s take a close look at the man who would be king of America in his mind, as he soars to the imaginary lofty heights of Mount Rushmore, or even Mount Obama. There he alone can stare into the idealistic Communist heavens where surely his heroes like Stalin, Lenin and Saul Alinsky must be resting … not. Their homes are actually several hundred subterranean levels lower and much, much hotter.
Obama’s administration has created more poverty at a much accelerated rate than any other president has ever done. According to the Washington Post, six months after the Great Recession of 2008 was over and Obama had stepped into the Oval Office, poverty was on a steady climb upward. In fact while Obama was giving out Wall Street bailouts to the millionaires, the middle class and the poor were forced onto food stamps. “There has been more than a 30 percent increase in food stamp recipients which now has reached a historical high of 47 million Americans.”
Just imagine, one out of every sixth person you see in a grocery line, or at a store or even in your church may be the person Obama has impacted by not creating more full time jobs. Worse yet, with Obamacare, the empty claims of job creation also ring hollow. According to the National Review, over 70 percent or 692,000 jobs created in 2013 as of August of this year were part-time jobs. This compares with a paltry 29 percent or 288,000 full time jobs created thanks to the flourishing Obama economy.
It only gets worse, because these dismal job creation numbers do not factor in the major economic impact Obamacare’s Small Business Mandate and Large Business mandate will kick in when tens of millions of Americans will be losing their healthcare, according to the recent Heritage Foundation Study.
Yes, Obama can claim that he is far greater than his predecessors, but is taking America in the opposite direction of prosperity and safety. President LBJ may have created a Great Society, but it is Obama who is attempting to move America toward a Great Socialist State. Not exactly the same.
But that is not the worst of Obama’s self indulgent claims about having shovel ready jobs that would stimulate the nation’s economy and creates millions of new jobs. The millions of jobs never materialized and according to the U.S. News and World Report, the president said in June 2011 when few jobs were created, “Shovel-ready was not as shovel-ready as we expected.”
It clearly appears that with each measurement of success that Obama pointed to in his self aggrandizement of his own tepid abilities during the fundraising speech, the truth of those failures were invisible.
The president claimed to be “re-centering our fight against terrorism in a way that respects our values and our ideals,” according to Newsmax. He forgot to mention abandoning four Americans who were being murdered in Benghazi. He forgot to mention that he was providing hundreds of millions of dollars in aid to the Muslim Brotherhood government in Egypt which advocated and supported terrorist actions and has murdered thousands of Christians.
Obama lays claim to “expanding access to college for children across this nation,” but did not tell you to read the small print which allowed hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens to look to access college education grants and slots ahead of the nation’s own citizen’s gifted children.
So when it comes to a president who seeks to lay claim to being the most accomplished president in the history of the nation, perhaps he is half right. He alone could have managed to push the auto-destruct button on America’s constitutional government with such speed and finesse that would rival even Lenin’s and Stalin’s early 19th century communist takeover in Russia.
Only a president sniffing something illegal could ever surmise that he was the greatest at anything Americans would be proud of. But, drugs can lead a person to be a bit delusional or very “crackish”!
