Obama’s Legacy of Disaster

US-POLITICS-OBAMA-RACEDuring a press briefing on Friday, Obama got angry and insisted, “The one unifying principle in the Republican Party is making sure that thirty million people don’t have health care.” He continued, “The American people would have difficulty understanding why we would weaken our economy, shut down our government, shut down vital services, have people who are not getting paid who then can’t go to restaurants or shop for clothes or all the other things that we are doing here — because Republicans have determined that they do not want to see these folks get health care.”

Since being elected in 2008, Obama has consistently portrayed himself as the underdog.  How can the man who is supposed to be the most powerful man in the world be the underdog? He is simply a fool.

And of course, Obama is wrong – no decent American of any political stripe wants Americans to not have health care. It’s just that part of this country still believes in capitalism and does not think that businesses and those who work need to provide for those who don’t work. There are indeed some who believe that the wealthy should be allowed to keep their money instead of paying for the rest of the country.  Why should some Americans be penalized and pay for others? Because I am 5WPR CEO, I need to pay for others?

Economically, a full five years since being elected, the man is constantly blaming someone else.  Is it all still President Bush’s fault? Even liberal media like the Washington Post recently wrote of the most recent quarter’s dismal 1.7 percent growth: “It isn’t even mediocre. It’s terrible. It’s a sign of the diminished economic expectations … that it’s anything to crow about at all.” At some point doesn’t Obama have to take responsibility for failure?

On the foreign policy front, the Obama administration is also a disaster. Take, for example, the U.S.’s pathetic interactions with Russia. Amongst the reasons President Vladimir Putin blatantly  disrespects President Obama is because he views Obama as weak. Putin (and China & others) do not fear Obama. A major stumbling block between the nations remains Syria, where Putin continues to support Assad, as his nation is a long-time Russian allies. Putin understands that an overthrow of Assad would create risk that Russia would lose influence in Syria. As Putin told Obama there have been “previous examples of political transition in Egypt and Libya as well as their concern that the West does not have a credible plan for what would happen to Syria’s various battling factions and ethnic groups if Mr. Assad stepped down from power.”  Putin flaunts Obama’s failures to justify his support of Syria – and strengthen Russia’s hand.

While Putin stands with Assad, Obama abandoned Mubarak, a longtime ally. He forgot the need for nations to protect their strategic interests. And today, in the midst of chaos in Egypt, all sides in the civil war fault America in a nation, which was formerly a staunch American ally.  While no one remembers the name of the Americans killed in Benghazi, Putin stands by his Syrian allies. From a Public Relations standpoint, Putin is a genius.

Obama is impotent. Has there been a time ever before when America has had worse foreign relations or been less well-respected worldwide? The entire world is mocking America. Can anyone possibly believe that Putin gives a damn if Obama will not meet with him?

The economy struggles, and Russia and China openly disrespect America. Obama made the wrong decision in Libya, Egypt and elsewhere and remains more concerned about Jews legally building homes in Israel than radical Muslims building bombs in Iran. He missteps by insulting Britain by appointing a top campaign donor as the ambassador to the UK.  On so many issues, this administration is a joke.

On Friday, Obama spoke of the importance of the American people having confidence in certain policies.  They don’t have confidence – although the Russians and Chinese do and should. How can any American have faith or confidence in the administration of President Barack Obama? President Obama is a disgrace.

    Brilliant words. I have many other words I’d also use for Obama – disaster well amongst them. Obama is a disaster. Great article by Ronn Torossian.

  • TheOrdinaryMan

    In addition, Obama is dead set against American energy independence–witness his efforts towards destroying the coal industry, his use of taxpayer dollars to bail out “green energy” companies that have failed, his refusal to approve the Keystone pipeline; and his closed-minded refusal to approve leases for oil drilling on government land. Meanwhile, he’s doing everything he can to divide Americans along racial lines; and establish his favorite religion–Islam; while weakening Christianity and Judaism. Worse-he’s demoralized and subverted America’s military, while his foreign policy is a total sham. Meanwhile, the real unemployment rate is over 14%;not to mention Obamacare. Yet his supporters will ask, “What problems?”Obama is against anything that’s good for America, and favors anything that’s not. My only question, “Why don’t we impeach him?”

    • CowboyUp

      Because the democrat party controls the senate, and there’s still too many lily livered RINOs to remove him if they did.

  • Aproudpatrioticam

    Call a spade a spade this man has harmed America immensely – economically, foreign policy and legacy. What an awful embarrassment Obama is.

  • Terri

    Well written an right on target! He is a disgrace to not only the USA but the world. He’s ignorant to foreign policies and puts Kerry in to embarrass us further. Counting down the days till he’s out along with his failed obamacare repelled and tossed

  • CowboyUp

    Now that’s suffering. Government employees, “…can’t go to restaurants or shop for clothes…,” and we know that’s what life’s all about for democrats, that, and leisure.
    I notice they’re already down to claiming to insure 30 million, from 44 million, and they’re still running up the cost for the other 260 million when they aren’t wrecking health care completely for them, to do it.

    Even by his own stated standards, Obama’s foreign policy is a disaster.

  • tokoloshiman

    The american people were duped because they craved change , soon they will be fooled again and elect the lying obfuscating ( “what difference at this stage does it make” ) hillary clinton as president.

  • Donald J DaCosta

    Dear Ronn, Could you be a little more outspoken? Say whet you really feel?

  • patron

    The one unifying principle in the Democratic Party is bankrupting America to seize power and increase personal wealth, despite the millions of lives they destroy.

  • Joel Cairo

    More than likely, Mr. Obama is a fellow traveler of the Syrian rebels. Assad is no one to be proud of, but keeping him in power provides greater stability in the region than the present alternative.

      Democrat Lies during campaign
      MSM 24/7 supporting Obama as if 24/7 free
      campaign ads.
      Public Schools and University students hearing the constant Left wing propaganda from the instructors

      Those who want welfare, food stamps, free cell phones, etc.
      knowing the Democrats are the hand out party for those
      who choose not to work.

    Obama’s Legacy will be a disaster also appears to be prophesied in the Bible.
    Habakkuk 2:4-7 and Jeremiah 50:30-31 identify him as ‘arrogant’ saying he (Obama) will stumble and fall and that he will be taunted with ridicule and scorn.

    • JoJoJams

      I always thought Jeremiah 50 seemed applicable to America as well.

      • Richard H Perry

        Yes, Jeremiah 50-51, as well as Isaiah 13-14 and 47-48 and of course Revelation 17-18 are all about End Time Babylon aka the USA.

        • JoJoJams

          Possibly. But re the revelation’s “who re of babylon” (can’t spell it, or the censor software keeps the post out), I strongly feel that is more the “godless” ideology (as opposed to an actual, individual nation) of marxist/socialist/communist of the international elites. They seem to be strongly “protecting” islam – which I believe to be the “ten headed beast”, and it’s apparent that they will use islam (babylon riding the ten-headed beast), to further their goals. Islam is the perfect “religion” for totalitarians, to completely control the masses. And, of course, we also know that the ten-headed beast will turn on the whor. Which also stands to reason regarding how that religion despises all that “babylon” stands for. But there is definitely a left/islamic alliance for now, both trying to use the other to further their own agendas. Whether America is a part of that remains to be seen, though it appears to be that we are certainly moving in that direction, and that very soon, “all the nations of the world will be against Israel” – which would include America…..
          Anyhow, we can agree to disagree on that aspect of prophecy. But, things are swiftly moving to completion. “And when you see these things come to pass, look up! For your redemption draws near…”

          • Richard H Perry

            It seems clear to me that these prophecies are speaking of a great nation in the Time of the End. This would also be consistent with how God described past nation in prophecies already fulfilled and He doesn’t change His ways. Plus no system or ideology could be destroyed like Sodom and Gomorrah, fire in one day and one hour. Read the passages I mentioned and see what you think.

    “At some point doesn’t Obama have to take responsibility for failure?”

    I realize this was a serious article, but I must be honest and confess the above question posed by the author had me (literally) in stitches. I had difficulty breathing, I was laughing so hard.

    To answer your question: No, he doesn’t.

    Barack Obama has never taken responsibility for ANYTHING in his entire lifetime. No reason to expect he would begin doing so simply because he happens to be President of the United States.

    The man is a pride-filled racist (“racist” being one who sees everything through the eyes of Color), with the same totalitarian bent in his thinking that most Leftists suffer from (I suspect its part of their dna, which is why their brains just naturally think on ways to make the lives of others miserable).

    In essence, putting the word “disaster” into a sentence along with mention of “Bark Obama” (my special nickname for the inept idiot currently “serving” as POTUS) is adding unnecessary emphasis to whatever point the writer is making.

    Gee, the first time I heard about Obozocare, it was because 50,000,000 people were uninsured, then it was 40,000,000 now he says it is 30,000,000. In reality it is approximately 12,000,000, and a number of those are illegals. So, you gut the greatest medical system in the world, to follow the failed European system just to insure 12,000,000???? This is really garnering 1/6th of the GNP to control the American people. He is a Trojan horse of the far left.
