Retro 2 -Part 3, Freedom and Liberty Guest Speaker, Tim Powers: The Many Impressive Accomplishments Of President Obama (Sarcasm Implied)

Given family engagements in town this week, we will be rerunning some of our most popular posts, posts that have garnered the most attention and which showed that we are currently enduring the worst set of politicians America has ever had.


Part 3, Freedom and LIberty Guest Speaker, Tim Powers: The Many Impressive Accomplishments of President Obama (Sarcasm Implied)

This is our third in our series of guest speakers who present their views of how the political class and the Federal government are shredding the Constitution and destroying liberty in this country. The first two posts can be accessed at :



The first of these posts was written by Thomas Sowell and is where we contended that his random thoughts had more meaning, purpose, and common sense than the combined thoughts of every Washington politicians COMBINED. The second speaker was Steven Foley who does a great job of comparing the Obama Care PR effort vs. the actually disastrous affects of Obama Care’s tenets and regulations.

Today’s guest speaker is Tim Powers who wrote the following piece over a year ago on May 22, 2012 for the Western Center For Journalism website. It has recently resurfaced and is getting some attention.

The hope of his piece was to document the many failures of the Obama administration’s first term in the hope that this losing streak and losing administration would not get a second term. Unfortunately, this hope was not fulfilled.

The title of his piece is sarcastically entitled “Obama’s Rather Impressive List Of ‘Accomplishments.’” We say sarcastically since Mr. Powers list is a list of misdeeds, screwups, and pomposity that any other President would find difficult to live up to, or down to.

We have covered many of these misadventures before but include them here to keep Mr. Powers’ article intact. Certainly nothing to be proud of as President of The United States:

I cannot not attest to the validity of ALL of these points but I can attest to the validity of MOST of these points since we have covered them in the past with appropriate documentation. The very sad thing is that Mr. Powers has not presented the complete list of dubious "accomplishments" of this administration, a service we provide below:

First President to approve the assassination of American citizens without due process of law, with multiple assassinations of Americans already successfully completed.

First President to have his administration incur a single year TRILLION spending deficit.

First President to have his administration incur four years of annual TRILLION spending deficits.

First President to authorize the collection of just about EVERY electronic communications of EVERY American EVERY day.

First President to have a wife compare living in the White House to living in a nice prison.

First President to take time to go on TV to annually discuss in detail his March Madness basketball picks and brackets.

First President caught secretly confiscating phone logs of reporters who wrote less than stellar reviews of his administration.

First President to kill hundreds of innocent civilians and hundreds of children via drone missile attacks in foreign countries.

First President to incur over 40 consecutive months with an unemployment rate over 8%.

First President who could not deliver a coherent speech or address without a teleprompter present and operating.

First President to purposely violate international arms control treaties with his disastrous Fast and Furious gun running program.

First President to purposely not save U.S. diplomatic personnel by not allowing a timely military rescue mission to proceed to save the two dozen or so U.S. members of the diplomatic staff at Benghazi, resulting in the unnecessary murders of four brave Americans.

First President to have food stamp participation levels go well past forty million Americans.

First President to waste tens of billions of dollars on failed, bogus, and crony-infested alternative energy projects with no societal benefit in return.

First American President to spend approximately $100 million on a First Family vacation.

First President to take absolutely no responsibility for the failings of his administration, the antithesis of Harry Truman’s “The Buck Stops Here” integrity, blaming among others for his failures: it was the fault of the Bush administration, it was the fault of the Tea Party, it was the fault of the Republicans, it was the fault of Congress, it was the fault of the Japanese tsunami, it was the fault of the Euro crisis, it was the fault of wealthy Americans who do not pay enough in taxes, it was the fault of ATM machines that help cause high unemployment, it was the fault of ordinary Americans who have grown “ a little soft” and who “have lost their ambition” over the years, it was the fault of the Chinese, and last, but not least, it was the fault of the Bush administration.

First President of have a First Family budget of over $1 billion a year.

Sad, sad, sad.
