- I have never voted for a Republican Presidential candidate in my life and I have been voting since the the Nixon era.
- Until 2010, I have never voted for a Republican for national office in my life.
- I am not affiliated with nor do I associate myself with the Republican Party, conservatives or people like Donald Trump.
We will breaking down the failures and disappointments of this administration into some broad categories that will take us a number of days to cover as we analyze “The Obama Presidency - The End Of An Error.” Three days ago we reviewed the dozens of lies and broken promises of this President and two days we talked about the dozens of times that the Obama administration violated laws, the Constitution, and judicial rulings.
Yesterday, we focused on how Obama and his administration has actively and aggressively divided Americans along sexual, racial, economic, and political lines. Specifically, rather than bringing people together, Obama stood silent and watched his political allies slander, degrade, insult, and divide the country to suit his needs, not the needs of the country and its citizens.
Today, we will focus on the many "firsts" of Obama and his administration, firsts that are often undistinguished, embarrassing, and a disaster:
Obama's Historical Firsts:
First President to apply for college aid as a foreign student, then deny he was a foreigner.
First President to have a social security number from a state he has never lived in.
First President to preside over a cut to the credit-rating quality of the United States.
First President to violate the War Powers Act.
First President to be held in contempt of court for illegally obstructing oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico.
First President to force all Americans to purchase a product from a third party, via Obama Care.
First President to spend and waste over $800 billion on “shovel-ready” jobs when there was no such thing as “shovel-ready” jobs.
First President to bypass Congress and implement the immigration Dream Act through executive decree.
First President to order a secret amnesty program that stopped the deportation of illegal immigrants across the U.S., including those with criminal convictions.
First President to authorize and commit the assassination of an American citizen without due process of law.
First President to terminate America’s ability to put a man in space.
First President to have a law signed by an auto-pen without being present.
First President to unilaterally and illegally declare an existing law unconstitutional and refuse to enforce it.
First President to threaten insurance companies if they publicly spoke out on the reasons for their rate increases.
First President try to tell a major manufacturing company in which state it is allowed to locate a factory.
First President to withdraw an existing coal permit that had been properly issued years ago.
First President to actively try to bankrupt an American industry (coal).
First President to appoint 45 czars to replace elected officials in his office.
First President in sixty years or so to golf more than 300 separate times while in office.
First President to win a Nobel Peace Prize for doing NOTHING to earn it.
First President to keep a dog trainer on taxpayer funded retainer for $102,000 a year.
First President to incur a trillion dollar annual Federal budget deficit.
First President to incur trillion dollar annual budget deficits more than one time (four budget years).
First President to not meet its annual budget deadline and schedule four out of five years.
First President to stand in front of the world, via the United Nations, and tell an outright lie, i.e. the Benghazi terror attack was caused by an obscure YouTube video.
Now, an Obama supporter may claim that the following firsts are positives in the face of the above disappointing firsts:
First President to win a Nobel Peace prize, which is a falsehood since he is the fourth, not the first.
First African-American American President - absolutely true.
Not a great list to leave behind as a legacy and as we approach the end of an error. Tomorrow we will discuss the many economic financial failures of this administration.
