Obama: King of Excuses


Obama on August 15, 2011:

“We had reversed the recession, avoided a depression, got the economy moving  again. … But over the last six months, we’ve had a run of bad luck.”

George Washington:

“Ninety-nine percent of the failures come from people who have the habit of making excuses.”

Obama is full of excuses.  And empty of any self-accountability whatsoever…..As only Krauthammer can elaborate:

A troubled nation wonders: How did we get mired in 9.1 percent unemployment,  0.9 percent growth and any economic outlook so bad that the Federal Reserve  pledges to keep interest rates at zero through mid-2013 — an admission that it  sees little hope on the horizon?

Bad luck, explains our president. Out of nowhere came Japan and its supply-chain disruptions, Europe and its debt problems, the Arab Spring and  those oil spikes. Kicked off, presumably, by various acts of God (should He not  be held accountable too?): earthquake and tsunami. (Tomorrow: pestilence and  famine. Maybe frogs.)……

…A plague of bad luck and bad faith — a recalcitrant providence and an  unpatriotic opposition. Our president wrestles with angels. Monsters of mythic  proportions.

A comforting fantasy. But a sorry excuse for a failing economy and a flailing  presidency.

Obama is a miserable failure at leading this great country.  However, Obama likely considers his promotion of class warfare, socialism, government/business alliances, and record welfare state as success.

Obama’s success = America’s failure.  Gee where have I heard something like that before?

Look, what he’s talking about is the absorption of as much of the private sector by the US government as possible, from the banking business, to the mortgage industry, the automobile business, to health care.  I do not want the government in charge of all of these things. I don’t want this to work. ……

…… We want to promote failure, we want to promote incompetence, we want to stand by and not object to what he’s doing simply because of the color of his skin?  Sorry.  I got past the historical nature of this months ago.  He is the president of the United States, he’s my president, he’s a human being, and his ideas and policies are what count for me, not his skin color, not his past, not whatever ties he doesn’t have to being down with the struggle, all of that’s irrelevant to me.  We’re talking about my country, the United States of America, my nieces, my nephews, your kids, your grandkids.  Why in the world do we want to saddle them with more liberalism and socialism?  Why would I want to do that?  So I can answer it, four words, “I hope he fails.”  And that would be the most outrageous thing anybody in this climate could say.  Shows you just how far gone we are.

Obama has failed this country (perhaps purposefully, in my opinion) but has succeeded in much of his anti-American, anti-capitalist agenda.  That agenda means America fails.  It it not too late to turn back the tide but it must be done in 2012.

Obama must be ousted in 2012…..that’s all there is to it.

  1. He does not even understand the 3 envelope story of leadership…

    Three Envelopes

    Her first day on the job, the CEO was somewhat annoyed to discover a stranger sitting in her office. She suddenly realized he was the recently ousted CEO.

    “I won’t take much of you time”, he said. “I’ve left three envelopes in your top right-hand drawer, under the pens and pencils.”

    Seeing her quizzical look, he went on. “Some day you’ll experience a crisis on the job. When you do, please open the first envelope.”

    She walked over to her desk. Sure enough, he’d left three envelopes tucked in her drawer. When she turned to look at him, he was gone. She quickly forgot his visit.

    One month later

    She left a staff meeting in a hurry. Everyone was up in arms over an employee who had died on the job. Apparently, several co-workers had complained to management about unsafe conditions, but no changes were made.

    Her phone message light was blinking, but she ignored it. Probably a reporter, and she wasn’t ready to deal with the press just yet. She grabbed a pencil from her drawer, and her eye fell on the corner of an envelope. “Oh well,” she thought. “It can’t hurt.”

    She tore open the envelope. Inside was a folded piece of paper with three words “Blame Your Predessor”.

    “Brilliant!” she thought, and immediatelly began drafting a press release.

    Two months later

    The CEO had lunch with her largest customer. At least, he was her largest customer before lunch was served. He spent the entire lunch complaining about customer service. Over dessert, he announced that he was taking his busines elsewhere.

    On the way back to her office, she called her sales VP. The picture was worse than she realized. Several other large customers had gone over to the competition, also citing service problems. They had to do something fast to convince others to stay.

    She pounced on the second envelope: “Reorganize Your Operations”. “Hmmm,” she thought. “It just might work. Realign customer service . . .”

    Three months later

    The CEO walked calmly out of the board meeting. Everyone on the board was upset. Their latest product was a disaster. Released a month late and dismissed by potential customers. She’d bet the company and her reputation on promises of success.

    The first two envelopes had saved her. She was betting on the third. She opened it slowly and carefully. “Prepare Three Envelopes.”

  2. Boria,

    Love it! 🙂

    Something tells me Obama opened the 3rd envelope long ago!
