It's been quite a week for president Soetoro. He's washed his hands of the Healthcare.gov website debacle by claiming that he didn't know anything about anything at any time - which is, sadly, an entirely believable assertion. Frankly, we're surprised that he didn't try to kill two birds with one stone by claiming the person in charge of supervising the Healthcare.gov website had been Ambassador Chris Stevens. Then again, he still may.
This week, Barry's policies and persona were also instrumental in Saudi Arabia's discontinuation of diplomatic relations with the United States, owing to their belief that Barry has made a complete and explosive mess of the Middle East (with Syria not even getting spanked for using chemical weapons on civilians, and Iran happily assembling nukes on Henry Ford-style assembly lines while John Kerry takes Balinese dance lessons). And the president's foreign policy failures weren't limited to the Middle East; soon-to-be-former allies France and Germany are now honked off after discovering that Barry had the NSA spy on their phonecalls, perhaps under the suspicion that those nations might be harboring members of the Tea Party.
Domestically, this week the president could also take credit for over 90 million Americans being out of the workforce, and 49% of Americans receiving government benefits and entitlements. In fact, in the roughly 5 years since King Barry started conscripting serfs and buying their votes, the government has spent 3.7 trillion taxpayer dollars on welfare and poverty programs which make not working seem like an increasingly smart career choice.
All of which would make for a satisfying week's accomplishments for an ordinary America-hating socialist. But Barry isn't one to rest on his haunches (or Reggie Love's) when there's still damage to be done. Which is why on Thursday, he told Congress that he wants a final immigration overhaul by the end of the year, in order to make American citizenship completely meaningless once and for all.
Okay, he didn't say that last part out loud, but trust us - it's what he's thinking. At least when he's not thinking of golf.
There's really only one thing which keeps this week from being absolutely perfect for B. Hussein - and that's the fact that more and more people are starting to see him for the duplicitous little crapweasel that he truly is.
The Wall Street Journal's Daniel Henninger, with whom Hope n' Change would like to share political discourse, a few adult libations, and maybe some fried cheese sticks, writes in his wonderful editorial "Obama's Credibility is Melting" that Barry's days of negotiating anything, domestic or foreign, are at an end because everyone now knows he's an entirely untrustworthy liar. (Note: Mr. Henninger did not use those exact words, but we're summarizing for brevity's sake)
Unfortunately, it's the United States and her citizenry which will be paying the cost of Barry's rapidly failing credibility and moral failures for the next 3 years as it becomes nearly impossible for legislators or allies to repair any of the damage he's done to our country and the world at large.
If you find all of this depressing, don't lose hope: Obamacare now requires everyone to have insurance coverage which covers mental health. So primal scream therapy and prozac will be available and affordable for all!
