Barack Obama campaigned promising to be a different kind of man and a different kind of president. He promised to work with the Republicans and include them. He specifically promised not to use executive orders to go around Congress.

As president, he rammed Obamacare through despite majority opposition against that law. Democrats passed that law during midnight and holiday votes. Obama promised to hold debates about the bill in public, on CSPAN, but instead had it engineered in backroom deals in which payoffs and favors were traded for critical votes.

He has rewritten that law on the fly 29 times, always with an intent to help himself and his party, not the American people. While giving unions and corporations breaks from Obamacare, ordinary Americans remain subject to the individual mandate. Obama and his party ridicule the idea that corporations are people, but he treats corporations better than he treats people.

Obama is promising/threatening to sideline Congress for the duration of his presidency. If Congress does not bend to his will, he threatens to go around it and act on his own.

The Obama administration claimed that 7 million Obamacare enrollees would be the measure of success. When that number proved to be unattainable, they moved the measure down to about 4 million. The administration’s apologists in the media went along with that. The administration has announced that about 3.3 million have enrolled, but even that number is fake: About 20% have not even paid their first premium, and therefore cannot be counted as enrolled.

Obamacare was sold as a plan to increase access and bring healthcare costs down. Obama promised that families would see premiums decrease by thousands of dollars per year. But so far, Obamacare has resulted in fewer Americans having healthcare now than before — about 6.5 million have lost coverage they had before. It has decreased access by shrinking provider networks. It has destroyed competition by eliminating some plans and replacing them with lesser plans only offered by one company in some areas. By every objective measure, Obamacare is a failure if it was truly intended to bring costs down, increase access and improve overall healthcare in America.

Obama promised to be inclusive and open and transparent. But from 2010 to 2013, his IRS circled around Americans who disagree with him and abused them. It audited conservatives. It kept conservative groups on the sidelines during the 2012 election, which he narrowly won. Executive branch agencies descended on election integrity activist Catherine Engelbrecht of Texas and harassed her for years.

At the same time, the Census Bureau reportedly faked unemployment data in the months just before the election. Unemployment figures are always critical in measuring a president’s job performance. Unemployment dipped sharply from August to November 2012.

The Census employee caught faking the results is Julius Buckmon, according to confidential Census documents obtained by The Post. Buckmon told me in an interview this past weekend that he was told to make up information by higher-ups at Census.

Ironically, it was Labor’s demanding standards that left the door open to manipulation.
Labor requires Census to achieve a 90 percent success rate on its interviews — meaning it needed to reach 9 out of 10 households targeted and report back on their jobs status.

Census currently has six regions from which surveys are conducted. The New York and Philadelphia regions, I’m told, had been coming up short of the 90 percent.

Philadelphia filled the gap with fake interviews.

“It was a phone conversation — I forget the exact words — but it was, ‘Go ahead and fabricate it’ to make it what it was,” Buckmon told me.

Buckmon wasn’t the only one. Obama had pulled the Census Bureau under the purview of the White House as one of his first acts as president. The bureau’s longstanding independence from politics was endangered from the beginning of the Obama administration.

Our narcissistic President isn't held accountable for any of his overreaching acts - a fawning press omits & obfuscates administration misdeeds & miscreants. Wasserman-Shultz, Pelosi, Reid & Co. lie & suborn lies for him at every turn.

When O'Reilly asks him the tough questions, he's accused of not giving due deference to the "office" and/or the 'man' (racism, of course), but Obama himself doesn't give due deference to the office, putting his feet upon the Oval Office desk, appointing unqualified political donors to ambassadorships, returning the Churchill bust & improperly (illegally?) using administrative agencies to punish perceived political foes, and more.

O's modus operandi is governance by the next election - using executive authority to push harmful deadlines past the next election in order to minimize political fallout to cronies & comrades, then hoping the harmed forget the harm done before the election after that. I don't see it happening in 2014 - LIVs may have short memories, but elephants never forget.

Will 2014 be a repeat of 2010? Only if patriotic Americans exercise their vote & put a stop to the madness.

I called Obama a fraud before he was elected. The massive national delusion is astounding.

We lived in perilous times for the rule of law...that day has passed.

We live in anomie.

There is no law, there are no checks and balances, there is no fourth estate, there is no accountability.

We are swimming in treason. We are in the depths of tyranny.

And...there is no rage. Which means, there is no heart to fight back.

Is this a Joke..?

A president that created the EPA, handed liquidity of US Economy over to Saudi Arabian Petroleum production, oversaw destruction of the US dollar, forced allies to stand down while Indonesian dictators massacred hundreds of thousands, set prices for ambassador appointments...Obama is somehow worse ??
The USA is on its decline because we give a pass to the guy representing OUR party. The rest of the world laughs at US politics and rightly so, its been a Joke since Nixon gave Saudi Arabia control of US Dollar reserves. The US dollar has lost 92% of its value since that day, and America still cannot come to terms with itself and rectify source of economic troubles.

And of course there have been no Democrat presidents since Nixon - had there been, these egregious acts would surely have been reversed.

Oh, wait...

Stop with the pussy footing phrases such as, "Least honest" for "most lying", or
"Liberal", for "Marxist/Socialist". What is this? Take it easy on traitors and subversives day?

Obama is nothing more than the kind of man that has had his ambition tempted by "the vast trusts" placed in him. Obama has taken the opportunity to run with the power handed to him in order to "raise himself to a position of permanent grandeur on the ruins of his country." - quotes in italics by Montesquieu.
This is not new ... the Founders knew it and put in place a prefect mechanism with which to deal with a despot like Obama. It's coming; and Obama's scared.

Somewhere along the way, Obama, Progressives and their special interest constituencies came to see politics and social activism as one big "he said, she said" game. The truth is what they say it is. Reality is of no concern. At best it is a side show, brought front and center only when supportive of one's ambitions and ideologies - which is rarely in their case. Lies, exaggerations and deceptive advocacy are their stock in trade - all delivered with impunity and without fear of challenges from the main stream media. It's working well for them now but will not last. When truth doesn't matter the center cannot hold.

Another punch between the eyes. Yet we know all this, and write all this, and read all this, and yet the train rolls on.

The esteem with which other countries had looked at the U.S.A. has taken a noticeable step backwards. And justifiably so. It's not that the U.S.A. counts a prominent buffoon, egomaniac , chronic liar and stunning underachiever in it's midst; no , every country breeds these misfits. And usually don't take notice of them (except Germany during the 1930s) . But that the U.S.A. today embraces values that for decades every book and magazine in every 'America house' abroad trumpeted as wholly un-American , that in itself signifies America's departure from 'being American' .
Interestingly enough, the U.S.A. have managed to garner disdain not just from one block of countries ,but a good cross section of them.
A sad kind of 'successful' statecraft.

He LIES, and the media is in awe, much like with Bill Clinton at how accomplished a liar he is.

But what else is to be expected from an unvetted, affirmative action, half white, incompetent, unpatriotic, irresponsible, chicago thug Failure.

Why did he run from Chicago? What connection did he have to that place?

Frank Marshall Davis, Barack's communist mentor in Hawaii during his teenage years, had Chicago roots. I don't recall exact details, but Davis was expelled from this country which is how he came to wind up in Hawaii, maybe before it became a state.

how Chicago became "home"...

Barack needed a place to be from stateside just as he needed a church for southside Chicago church cred which, along with Michelle liking it, brought him into Jeremiah (was a bullfrog) Wright's palace of worship of Black Liberation Theology and Louis Farrakhan.

His history is as fraudulent as daddy in Dreams From My Father.

We are indeed in perilous times. Whenever a nation descended into this kind of madness it emerged quite changed and farther down the road the only remedy that really righted all its wrongs was a complete upheaval.

The MSM is this administration’s eager propaganda w***e; allowing itself to be pimped out as need be to cover for it many failures. After Obama is gone the Old Media will try to recover what it squandered on this misfire of a president, but it probably reached a point of no return in 2012 and it’s unlikely to. The spectacle it presented the nation that year of trying to save Barack Obama from himself and the Democratic Party from Barack Obama has been chiseled in stone somewhere and will be very, very difficult to expunge.

The only good news is that there isn’t likely to be another Barack Obama in our lifetimes, but one was quite enough to last for several.

I truly hope you're right but I have to admit to being somewhat skeptical about that proposition. I'm not at all sure the lesson has been learned yet. After all, Obama got re-elected when even he acknowledged that wouldn't happen if he didn't turn the economy around.

Wait until his final days in office when he pardons and frees as many prisoners as possible.

The media kept the public from knowing: FDR was crippled; JFK, LBJ &WJC were serial adulterers; Hillary & Obama are gay.

In DC they all know it, they've seen him with Reggie Love and will not report it. Being gay is now being portrayed as the "in-thing", if the media really believes that, why don't they report that Obama is gay?

"...why don't they report that Obama is gay?"

Surely by now you realize that Obama is a creation; this man is no more real than the Scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz. Just about every aspect of this man's life experiences have been prompted & put together by other people. "Fraud" in the dictionary has his pic.........
