Obama administration is an abject failure?

    The economy sucks after years of this leftist garbage. Taxes went up so consumers aren't spending as much. Poor people can't afford Obamacare. His Muslim Brotherhood people that he backed in Egypt are getting their ass kicked. He's destabilized the ME. He continued the policies that he campaigned against. He has no explanation for how the Federal Sector is going to make the minimums on the debt when rates rise...

    Is he just here to punish us for being prosperous and happy, what?

    I'm just curious as to why you put a question mark at the end of the thread title, instead of a period.
    Afraid the NSA/CIA/FBI/IRS/USPS and any other USA terrorist organizations are watching?

    The Terrorist Notches on Obama’s Belt

    The list of senior terrorists killed during the Obama presidency is fairly extensive.

    There’s Osama bin Laden, of course, killed in May.

    Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) leader Anwar al-Awlaki as of today.

    Earlier this month officials confirmed that al Qaeda’s chief of Pakistan operations, Abu Hafs al-Shahri, was killed in Waziristan, Pakistan.

    In August, ‘Atiyah ‘Abd al-Rahman, the deputy leader of al Qaeda was killed.

    In June, one of the group’s most dangerous commanders, Ilyas Kashmiri, was killed in Pakistan. In Yemen that same month, AQAP senior operatives Ammar al-Wa’ili, Abu Ali al-Harithi, and Ali Saleh Farhan were killed. In Somalia, Al-Qa’ida in East Africa (AQEA) senior leader Harun Fazul was killed.

    Administration officials also herald the recent U.S./Pakistani joint arrest of Younis al-Mauritani in Quetta.

    Going back to August 2009, Tehrik e-Taliban Pakistan leader Baitullah Mahsud was killed in Pakistan.

    In September of that month, Jemayah Islamiya operational planner Noordin Muhammad Top was killed in Indonesia, and AQEA planner Saleh Ali Saleh Nabhan was killed in Somalia.

    Then in December 2009 in Pakistan, al Qaeda operational commanders Saleh al-Somali and ‘Abdallah Sa’id were killed.

    In February 2010, in Pakistan, Taliban deputy and military commander Abdul Ghani Beradar was captured; Haqqani network commander Muhammad Haqqani was killed; and Lashkar-e Jhangvi leader Qari Zafar was killed.

    In March 2010, al Qaeda operative Hussein al-Yemeni was killed in Pakistan, while senior Jemayah Islamiya operative Dulmatin - accused of being the mastermind behind the 2002 Bali bombings – was killed during a raid in Indonesia.

    In April 2010, al Qaeda in Iraq leaders Abu Ayyub al-Masri and Abu Omar al-Baghdadi were killed.

    In May, al Qaeda’s number three commander, Sheik Saeed al-Masri was killed.

    In June 2010 in Pakistan, al Qaeda commander Hamza al-Jawfi was killed.

    Remember when Rudy Giuliani warned that electing Barack Obama would mean that the U.S. played defense, not offense, against the terrorists?

    If this is defense, what does offense look like?

    Obama signed off on taking out pirates

    President Barack Obama issued a standing order to use force against pirates holding an American captain hostage — including giving a Navy commander the authority to act if he believed the captain’s life was in danger, two senior defense officials said Sunday night.

    Navy snipers aboard the USS Bainbridge on Sunday shot and killed three of the pirates after the Bainbridge’s commander gave the order, when a pirate was spotted aboard the lifeboat pointing an AK-47 rifle at Capt. Richard Phillips, one defense official said.

    The Incredible Shrinking Budget Deficit

    For four years, during and in the wake of the recession, the federal budget deficit ballooned to more than $1 trillion. But because of belt-tightening in Washington and a strengthening economy, it has started shrinking — and fast.

    The number crunchers at Goldman Sachs have lowered their estimates of the deficit both this year and next, on the back of higher-than-expected revenues and lower-than-projected spending. Analysts started the year projecting that the deficit in the current fiscal year would be about $900 billion. Earlier this year, they lowered the estimate to $850 billion. Now they have lowered it again, to $775 billion, or about 4.8 percent of economic output.

    “Spending in the fiscal year to date is lower than a year ago and the nominal growth rate is lower than it has been in decades,” the Goldman economists wrote in a note to clients. “Revenues have also exceeded expectations, with a 12 percent gain fiscal year to date. What is more notable is that the strength in revenues preceded the payroll tax hike at the start of the year, and the spending decline does not seem to reflect sequestration, which has just started to take effect.” To translate: the deficit could come in even smaller than currently anticipated because of spending cuts and higher tax rates.


    Rising revenues to shrink deficit rapidly through 2015: CBO

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The deficit is shrinking considerably more quickly than previously thought, the Congressional Budget Office said on Tuesday in a report that could sap Congress' sense of urgency to find further budget savings.

    In one fell swoop, the non-partisan budget referee slashed its deficit forecast for the current fiscal year by $203 billion from estimates made in February to $642 billion - making it the smallest budget shortfall since 2008.

    The CBO said the deficit will fall to $378 billion by 2015 with no congressional action - a sharp contrast to the $1 trillion recession-driven deficits in each of President Barack Obama's first four years in office.

    Brother AK, it is amazing that you still try to defend Barack Obama.
    This wad of shit has destroyed whatever was left of the (formerly) United States Of America.

    He sides with party not principle, obama could be caught with 15 dead hookers in his trunk and instead of condeming it he would look for something comparable from some obscure republican did, and that would confirm his view of obama as best president ever.
  7. Being one of the few Presidents who will leave office with a lower deficit then he came into office with, killing Americas biggest enemy, pulling out of Iraq,keeping military industrial complex spending near the same levels he came into office with when the last president increased military industrial complex spending from 300 billion a year to 700 billion a year,having higher stock market gains then other recent Presidents,having less then 50 terrorist deaths on his watch while the last President had nearly 4,000,coming into office with the economy losing 500,000-800,000 jobs a month and turn it into nearly 4 years of job growth,by getting nearly every American health care etc IMO is not destroying America brother BSAM.Like your hero Reagan he might even get immigration reform done :)
