25 Mistakes of Obama's First 100 Days

From Darrin Moore's Notes on Facebook...

I'd be interested in hearing a liberal's side of the argument why these choices are not mistakes but are actually smart moves on Obama's part. Help me understand.

1. Offended the Queen of England

2. Bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia

3. Praised the Marxist Daniel Ortega

4. Kissed Hugo Chavez on the cheek

5. Endorsed the Socialist Evo Morales of Bolivia

6. Announced we would meet with Iranians with no pre-conditions

7. Gave away billions to AIG, also without pre-conditions

8. Expanded the bailouts

9. Insulted everyone who has ever loved a Special Olympian

10. Doubled our national debt

11. Announced a termination of the space defense system the day
after the North Koreans launched an ICBM.

12. Despite the urgings of his own CIA director and the prior 42 CIA
directors, released information on intelligence gathering. Announced major
restrictions on interrogation techniques used on enemy combatant prisoners.

13. Accepted without public comment the fact that five of his cabinet
members cheated on their taxes and two others withdrew after they
couldn't take the heat.

14. Appointed a Homeland Security Chief who quickly identified as "dangers to the nation", groups including veterans of the military, and opponents to abortion on demand, and who ordered that the word terrorism” no longer be used but instead referred to such acts as “man made disasters.

15. Circled the globe so he could openly apologize for America’s greatness.

16. Told Mexicans the violence in their country was because of us.……

17. Politicized the census by moving it into the White House from its
Department of Commerce origins and announced ACORN [the organization
under massive scrutiny amid allegations of election fraud] would manage the process.

18. Appointed as Attorney General the man who orchestrated the forced removal and expulsion from America to Cuba of a nine-year old whose mother died trying to bring him to a life of freedom in the United States.

19. Salutes as heroes three Navy SEALS who took down three terrorists who threatened one American life and the next day announces members of the Bush administration will likely stand trial for torturing a terrorist who had played a part in killing 3000 Americans by pouring water up their nose.

20. Air Force One flew over New York City for a photo op without notifying local authorities causing widespread panic.

21. Took over the American Automobile industry and handed over 50% off to the unions [because he said he owed them].

22. Continued his drive for absolute gun control activities, thumbing his nose at the 2nd Amendment.

23. Offered travel and living subsidies in the U.S.to Hamas activists displaced from the Gaza Strip.

24. Got more airtime [TV] than Oprah Winfrey and was seldom in Washington tending to the business of State.

25. Announced the closure of enemy combatants detention center in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba
but failed to address the issue of 'what' to do with the 200+ prisoners currently held there.
Rumors persist that they'll be housed on U.S. soil.

the 1,000,000 mistakes of bush's 8 years in office yet?

To my recollection, there was a website that counted about 900 official lies of the Bush administration. You might find that with some googling.

At any rate, GEORGE W. BUSH IS NO LONGER THE PRESIDENT. F***head though he was, please try to keep that in mind.

Offended the Queen of England
Didn't happen, but anyway it's the Queen of England - who gives a rats ass!

Bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia Verses holding hands and making out?

I'll stop now, too funny.

"Air Force One flew over New York City for a photo op without notifying local authorities causing widespread panic."

Local Authorities were notified.

This list would be better with actual references other than some guy's Facebook Profile.

yah

SpeedRacer exemplifies a typical Republican Lemming®.

Hey Speed, #22? Bullshit. That's just right off the bat! Along with 1 to 25.

Did you even research anything on that list? I'm thinking nooooooooooooo.

George Bush can single-handedly fuck over the energy resources this country relies upon, sends our young to sacrifice their lives for his war, which PUT US IN THIS FUCKING RESSESSION IN THE FIRST FUCKING PLACE, and gives out BILLIONS of dollars to bail out Wall Street firms with absolutely no stipulations, but it's all Obama's fault.

Nothing but mindless Republican Talking Points® drivel.

Between Inaugration Day 2001 and 9-11-2001, George Bush took more vacations than any sitting president...ever.

Impress me with your own facts to back up each statement you posted above. Then perhaps I'll take you seriously.

BIVF,

Your emotional response makes me believe you to know O'Bama is making stupid mistakes. Must be touching a nerve.

but does not change the fact that Bush handed over a mess that even I didn't realize how bad off America was.

I've officially given up on Obama. His set of latest statements on the GM (Government Motors) bailout/bankruptcy/Socialism is the last straw. He wants to invoke Corporate Socialism, which is PURE EVIL. He's only 150 days into his term, and he's well on track to being one of the worst Presidents in U.S. history.

Why? CORPORATE SOCIALISM, in case you just forgot what I said. The government has ZERO right to prop up ANY industry, much less the absurdly risky banks and the completely stupid auto industry.

Obama is done, like bacon. He refuses to accept the truths of our current situation:

1. We're in the Great Depression II and NOTHING can be done to put a stop to it. A Depression has to RUN ITS COURSE, to liquidate bad debts and return the population to fiscal sanity (savings, frugality, physical investment, shunning speculation, etc.).

2. Corporate Socialism is pure evil. Rich people and companies DO NOT DESERVE WELFARE.

3. Excessive spending and debt are NOT the solutions to problems caused by excessive spending and debt.

I can't believe that there's no mention of the following in this list (in no particular order):

1. Continued the Bush policy of military tribunals
2. defended warrantless wiretapping
3. expanded the war in Afghanistan
4. blocks any efforts to investigate war crimes
5. proposed some vague concept of indefinite detention

Are you trying to tell me that these are less importent than the first 5 items on this list? (you can just throw those out--they are asinine)

Pink Slip

I have wondered how Obama supporters feel about these very things Pink Slip mentions, especially discussions of expanding the military reach in Afghanstan, and the wishy-washy handling of his Guantanamo Bay promises.

Glad to know that he isn't above your criticism and that you aren't just blindly defending all of his actions.

"I have wondered how Obama supporters feel about these very things"

Helen, a lot of liberals share these views. However, you wouldn't know it listening to the "liberal media" (ha ha). They are too busy repeating only serious things, like what Rush & Newt have to say.

Pink Slip

I said many times there could be nothing good from the government getting into the car business. Now we are going to play politics with who gets a job who doesn't.

he should have just let the company collapse a month ago and we'd have saved 30 billion dollars.

or was it trillion.

damn it...

I don't know if we can put a number on it yet Brian because it's still ongoing.

This is what I supported with the car companies

Splitting up the companies and selling off the Brands.

The worst decision through all of this was halting the Pontiac brand. Pontiac was the #3 brand GM owns. They could have sold it... or at least a part of it and Pontiac lovers would still be able to buy the cars they prefer. But GM wants to keep the control over the empire they built and the empire that's falling.
