100 Days of Bad Decisions

Some people are keeping score. I thought about keeping a chart myself, because it seemed like every day there was something ridiculous. What have I liked so far in the Obama administration? Well, if he actually manages to convince credit card companies to drop all their ridiculous tactics, I would approve of that. But it would more than likely result in less people being able to get credit cards or good rates.

I really wanted to give the guy a chance but from the get go he has either done everything wrong, badly or done something I really disagree with. If he lets congress go ahead and investigate the “torture” methods of the CIA and indict people to testify, there is going to be a huge rift in this country and the Dems will be seriously damaged for decades.

I don’t have anything against the Democrats per se. But I think it’s time the extreme lefties are gone from the party for good. Maybe Obama will seal their doom, unwittingly. All I know is, if he continues on the path he is going, he will be the most hated president in history because he will be the clown that ruined the US for good.

  1. On that “torture”* thing, he’s actually planning to indict the lawyers that gave the go-ahead (based on precedent and existing law). Like his attempted violation of the Establishment Clause in trying to kill the AIG bonuses, this is an unbelievable affront to the rule of law in America. We need to add this to the “If Bush had done it…” files.

    *Torture, as defined by the left is “any interrogation technique that actually works.”

  2. Given that he broke virtually every major campaign promise he used to get the left and independents to elect him, he has to give them SOME kind of red meat to chew on. This torture thing does that, and also provides a desperately-needed media distraction from his abysmal and criminal performance with respect to the economy (which the media was just finally starting to notice). It keeps the focus on the previous administration rather than his own already-failed one.

  3. Goy, that’s true. But it’s a double edged sword because it will make mortal enemies of the power players on the right and people who think the country has a right to defend itself against terror. If there is another attack it will be blamed on Obama, because he is making the CIA and the people who defend this country feel they will be judges no matter what they do which will seriously weaken any efforts we do to be on guard.

  4. And because of all the crap the Президент has already done, there may be people out there who might start thinking that Бара́к Хусе́йн Оба́ма may very well be the LAST President of the United States….

  5. I have no sympathy for the CIA which has become paralytically PC, and waged a “leak war” against Bush for eight years. But what Obama is doing is a hideous precedent and bad for the security of America. He will certainly make no friends in the CIA…not to mention the FBI and any other security organization that might have cause to fear they will be the next victim of Obama’s need to find a new distraction. Obama is likely to find a few leaks embedded in HIS back before long.
    And I agree 100% that Obama and his MSM lapdogs have done a stunningly effective job of playing wag the dog to hide various failures and outrages. “Look! $100m in AIG bonuses! Evil corporate executives! Dispatch our ACORN brownshirts to picket their houses!” (Meanwhile, the $500m in bonuses paid to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac executives that are friends of Washington insiders like Frank and Dodd quietly fall into the memory well.)

  6. I don’t know, James, if there is another attack, I’m not sure we can safely assume that BHO will get the blame he deserves. The OKC Bombing wasn’t blamed on Clinton, despite the fact that his administration either orchestrated it or his administration inspired it as a reaction to Ruby Ridge and Waco. Possibly both.

    If and when it happens, who is ultimately blamed for any attack will be determined by what’s left of NYT, WaPo, CNN, Reuters, BBC, AP, et al., with no shortage of spew from Pelosi, Reid and BHO whining about “the last eight years of failed, unilateral, ‘cowboy’ diplomacy and aggressive foreign policy”. And I’m sure they’ll manage to mix in plenty about “ready availability of guns” and all that crap too.

  7. Yes, the entrenched media is definitely becoming less relevant. Unfortunately, the rate of that ‘becoming’ is far too slow to have any immediate effect on US policy. They still control the opinions of a majority of Americans, either directly or through the obfuscation they pursue.

    The blogosphere is making a difference, but it’s not significant enough yet. And unlike talk radio, it’s balanced out by the proliferation of leftists on-line. As long as the entrenched media continues to ignore and/or demonize bloggers – as they’ve done with the Tea Party movement – BHO can ignore them with relative impunity.

  8. OBAMA IS PASSING SOOOO MANY BILLS SOOOO FAST THAT NONE OF US HAVE A CHANCE TO REVIEW THEM. ALL OF A SUDDEN, THEY’RE IMPLEMENTED AND WE AS AMERICAN CITIZENS HAVE HAD NO SAY IN ANY OF THEM.
    WE, AS A PEOPLE, NEED TO STAND UP FOR OUR RIGHTS AND PROTEST WHAT IS HAPPENING.
    WE’VE BECOME COMPLACENT, AND WON’T ACT UNTIL IT’S AFFECTING ALL OF US ~ WHICH WILL BE TOO LATE.
    FIRST OUR GUN RIGHTS ARE BEING CHALLENGED. IF OUR SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS (AND GUNS) ARE TAKEN FROM US, WHAT ARE OBAMA’S PLANS NEXT?!!!
    IS HE GETTING READY TO DECLARE MARTIAL LAW IF WE OPPOSE HIS POLICIES?!
    I DO BELIEVE HE IS TAKING US TO HELL IN A HAND BASKET.

  9. I just surfed on here because I liked your ESPers comics and Alpha Flight comics. Man I never expected to find such an extremist sentiment! The opinions above may not agree with my worldview, but you’ve got every right to say it.

    I’m only going to take exception to one statement – your assertion that the Obama administration “…will make mortal enemies of the power players on the right and people who think the country has a right to defend itself against terror” implies that those who support investigating and if necessary prosecuting crimes committed by the CIA and the Bush Administration DO NOT think that the country has a right to defend itself against terror. I want to see the CIA investigated and if necessary prosecuted and I god damn well think the USA has a right to defend itself! You can state your opinion and argue the facts all you want, but don’t doubt the patriotism of your fellow Americans just because they take a different view than you. My wife and I both ride the NYC subway every day so we’re probably at a lot more risk than some of your commenters.

    . If there is another attack it will be blamed on Obama, because he is making the CIA and the people who defend this country feel they will be judges no matter what they do which will seriously weaken any efforts we do to be on guard.

  10. OOOPS – obviously that last paragraph was not mine – it is Mr. Hudnell’s. I accidently pasted it in there. The only reason ‘the people who defend this country’ should worry about being judged is if they break the law, THE SAME AS ALL OF US.
