Democratic Party hopes tubed by The White House

See also

In case you have missed it, President Obama has gone so far off the tracks at this crucial moment in Election 2014 history that he and his administration have sunk any opportunity for Democrats to strengthen their position in the House, and may have destroyed their slim margin the Senate too. Here is a list of 10 reasons why.

1. Failure to act decisively on energy independence from foreign oil.

2. Failure to act decisively against Russia’s takeover of the Crimea.

3. Failure to act decisively against Syria.

4. Failure to act decisively against Iran.

5. Releasing the top five Taliban leaders in exchange for an AWOL deserter.

6. Backing poorly performing executives that he personally appointed: Kathleen Sebelius and Susan Rice.

7. Failing to act with proper supervision and authority over the mal performing VA.

8. Failing to act to recover Edward Snowden and for permitting conditions that created that fesco.

9. Failure to stop abuse by America’s spy agencies.

10. Failure to implement the Affordable Care Law without disastrous consequences.

See the annotated list.

He did not act to support the XL Pipeline that is essential to move America to energy independence from foreign oil. That is a first step to reducing tensions in the Middle East and the first step toward pursuing a renewable energy policy that replaces fossil fuels altogether.

The Obama administration watched while Russia stole Crimea right before their eyes. Foreign policy and the State Department led by John Kerry was completely ineffective at stopping Putin from walking in an stealing a complete territory from the Ukraine.

President Obama spoke tough against Syria and then capitulated, even when Secretary of State Clinton pleaded for him to arm the rebels. Obama doesn't listen to his best advisors.

4. Failure to act decisively against Iran.

Israel pleaded for months and now years that Obama's approach with Iran is wrong. Now, we are muddled into position where Iran will likely be able to arm themselves with nuclear weapons. No progress has been made to influence Iran to change its ways.

The release of Taliban's top five captive leaders is so egregious that it is despicable. Trading an AWOL traitor for high value leadership is simply terrible judgment, or worse.

Obama's picks for HHS and NSA are terrible and ineffective. Sebelius wasn't qualified and neither is Susan Rice. Both are incompetent and performed poorly with consequences that hurt the nation.

Obama picked Shinseki to lead the VA even though he was not qualified to head that agency. Obama makes political appointment as a matter of patronage and convenience. The result is injurious to the nation.

Ed Snowden happened at the hands of President Obama. It happened because the Obama administration was out of control as Snowden has proven. Yet, Obama should not have let Snowden escape. He should have brought him to speedy trial.

Spy agencies have been abusing the public for years, dating to the Bush Administration. The Obama Administration has been no more effective in managing and controlling this essential resource.

The Affordable Care Law and its intent is correct. The way that Obama bungled implementation disgraced the party, even though Republicans were also saboteurs.
