I can’t get away from Obama’s arrogant boast from last year. It has just been thoroughly destroyed too many times, in too many ways:
“I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on earth.”
Let’s examine this on a clause-by-clause basis and see how Obama has fared:
This was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick? Another way to put it is “This was the moment companies dropped their health care coverage so every sick person could one day lay helplessly in their own filth on Medicaid.”
(Fortune) — The great mystery surrounding the historic health care bill is how the corporations that provide coverage for most Americans — coverage they know and prize — will react to the new law’s radically different regime of subsidies, penalties, and taxes. Now, we’re getting a remarkable inside look at the options AT&T, Deere, and other big companies are weighing to deal with the new legislation.
Internal documents recently reviewed by Fortune, originally requested by Congress, show what the bill’s critics predicted, and what its champions dreaded: many large companies are examining a course that was heretofore unthinkable, dumping the health care coverage they provide to their workers in exchange for paying penalty fees to the government.
That to go along with ObamaCare now acknowledged to cost FAR more than Democrats falsely said, and along with the fact that this boondoggle has forced businesses to write down billions of profits that could have been used to create jobs.
Good jobs for the jobless? How about any jobs whatsoever for the jobless? Unemployment was 7.6% when Bush left office. Obama promised it wouldn’t get over 8% because of his stimulus, but he lied. And now it’s 9.9% and unlikely to get much lower for a long time to come.
When the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal? Let me just say three words: Gulf of Mexico. The oceans are rising due to millions and millions of gallons of oil that Obama has done nothing to even slow down. I mean, my God: it took him like six weeks to even tell us that he was responsible.
This was the moment when we ended a war? How about this was the moment when we tried to take credit for George Bush ending a war? Just what war has Obama ended? The general in command in Afghanistan says its a “bleeding ulcer” over there, and that “nobody’s winning.” So it’s probably not that war. And it’s hard to imagine he’s talking about North and South Korea, given the fact that those countries are on the verge of total war in a situation that has gone to hell during his misrule. Nor is it likely he’s talking about Iran, given the fact that his fool policy that even his own Secretary of State once openly mocked as “irresponsible and frankly naive” has completely fallen apart, and now Iran can build nuclear weapons any time it wants to.
And secured our nation? Oh, yeah. You’ve done a hell of a good job on that one, Barry Hussein:
Washington (CNN) — For the first time in nearly four years, a majority of Americans think that a terrorist attack is likely to occur somewhere in the United States in the next few weeks, according to a new national poll. . . .
Fifty-five percent of people questioned say an act of terrorism in the U.S. over the next few weeks is likely, up 21 points from last August. Forty-three percent said such an attack is not likely, down 21 points from August. . . .
The survey’s release comes one day after the Obama administration released its first National Security Strategy, a 52-page outline of the president’s strategic approach and priorities on battling terrorism.
And now here’s the very last one, tumbling into the toilet like the turd-in-chief is tumbling in the polls:
And restored our image as the last, best hope on earth. Here’s what Obama’s “restoration of America’s image” actually looks like:
Japan’s prime minister resigns over Okinawa base

TOKYO – Embattled Japanese Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama said Wednesday he was resigning over his broken campaign promise to move a U.S. Marine base off the southern island of Okinawa.
The prime minister had faced growing pressure from within his own party to resign ahead of July’s upper house elections. His approval ratings had plummeted over his bungled handling of the relocation of the Marine Air Station Futenma, reinforcing his public image as an indecisive leader.
Or let me put it this way: “You have restored America’s image, Mister President Obama-san. We now revere your country as never before due to your most wonderful greatness. Now will you please take all your American crap and your American prestige and get the hell out of our country? It is only because we honor YOU so much, Obama-san, that we want America the hell out of Okinawa after being here for 65 years.”
“We had so much contempt for Bush – you see, we don’t even call him Bush-san – that we allowed America to remain during his presidency. It is only because of our profound and deep admiration of you that we are kicking your ass to the curb now, Obama-san. You are last, best, greatest hope on earth, Obama-san. Now please not to let door hit your skinny ass on way out.”
So let’s tally up: fail until we die of socialist health care, fail big time until our unemployment benefits run out, fail all over the Gulf of Mexico and likely all over Florida and then the East Coast, fail until we cut and run, fail while getting ready for the next massive terrorist attack, and, finally, fail ingloriously all over the world.
I know, I know: I didn’t tell the truth. I’m nowhere NEAR through with the list of all the ways that Obama has completely failed America. Obama has failed to control spending as our deficit soars like a rocket ship. Obama has failed to secure our financial system as our banks have closed at MORE THAN DOUBLE THE RATE OF LAST YEAR. Obama has failed to act on illegal immigration. Etcetera. Etcetera. Obama has failed his own rhetoric. Obama has just failed, period. Obama has even failed to kick his smoking habit.
Let me try to paraphrase Obama’s speech above in a way that properly corrects the record:
I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to realize that we had the absolute suckiest president in our nation’s entire history at the very time we needed a good one the most.
