Let’s see, during his presidency on a salary of $395,000/yr (before taxes), Obama has managed to salt away enough to buy two houses, one for over $5.3 million. The man really knows how to manage his money[sarc] .. And let’s not forget the missing $5 billion when Hillary was Sec. of State. Do we actually think some of it didn’t end up in Obama’s pocket? He makes Hillary, with her futures trading-savvy look like a piker. Too bad he never applied his financial expertise during his presidency to the country’s finances (take a peek, for instance, at the raging national debt to your right). But, for a guy who never had a job in the public sector that is way behind Hillary, but way ahead of most.
It is abundantly clear now that Obama and the sick Hillary (throw in gravely ill Bill, too) have been the most corrupt leaders in American history, as the list of travesties during his presidency included Solyndra (Federal Guaranteed Loans to bundlers), to the fake “Stimulus”, to ObamaCare (you can keep your doctor if you like him and save $2,500), to Benghazi (“what difference does it make” running guns to terrorists), to Uranium One, to the Clinton Foundation and Pay-for-Play. His swan song of his presidency was using the Justice Department to shut down the FBI to preclude any Justice-in-the-balance-scales for We The People versus the Clinton Foundation.
But from a purely historical perspective, this Islamophile, “True Believer” in Marxism doesn’t even know history. He hauled off on his latest tax-payer funded vacation to lecture the Greeks of all people, about “Democracy” when in fact democracy itself was birthed, lived, and died in Ancient Athens. If he had read anything from Plutarch, Herodotus or Polybius (bearing in mind of course, if any of the sycophantic acolytes around him even knew anything about these historic brainiacs), he would have known that Athenian Democracy was a catastrophe, just like his failed presidency.
Themistocles and Aristides were both exiled after the Democracy voted to send them to war, when they were defeated, exiled, and joined forces with Sparta, Persia, or both. Pericles tried to build a NWO of non-barbarians only to have Athenians vote for the Peloponnesian War that ended Athens and the Greek experiment. Obama is clearly an intellectual moron. But he sure is damn sure about himself and his presidency.
The ONLY thing Obama did positively was wake up the Silent Majority to push back……
He has shown how corrupt both parties are, in that his lawless edicts revealed just how many evil, corrupt, power-hungry, greedy, dirty-rotten scoundrel retards inhabit the political sewer that is Washington, D.C. His will go down as the laziest, most incompetent, inept, and specious presidency in living memory and all made possible by a corrupt, sycophantic main stream Big Media with very many stupid people who continue to adore him.
“It is near the end of the day when a small man casts a long shadow.” Be gone Barry. Just be gone.
Under the wide and starry sky,
Dig the grave, and let me lie:
Glad did I live, and gladly die,
And I laid me down with a will.
This be the verse you ‘grave for me:
Here he lies where he long’d to be;
Home is the sailor, home from the sea,
And the hunter home from the hill.
Requiem ~ Robert Louis Stevenson
William F. Marshall, American Thinker and “Bookends to a Disastrous Presidency”…
To watch Barack Obama’s pathetic final non-victory lap around the world this past week, one can’t help but recall his stomach-churning “Apologize for America Tour” at the start of his administration. You’ll recall that in April 2009, he went to Europe, which we sacrificed tens of thousands of American lives to liberate 70-plus years ago, and informed Europeans that America “has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive” of Europe.
Last week, Mr. Obama could not resist the urge to dis his country once again, telling the “global community,” again from a foreign shore, that in the age of the internet, nationalism (read: Donald Trump) is rearing its ugly head. “Faced with this new reality where cultures clash, it’s inevitable that some will seek a comfort in nationalism or tribe or ethnicity or sect,” he informed us from Athens. He reassured his audience that “American democracy is bigger than any one person.” (Wink, wink, Donald.) Fittingly, he then went on to tour the ruins of ancient Greece, before flying off to Berlin to cry on the shoulder of his globalist soul mate, Angela Merkel, another leader looking at a potential uprising by her constituency, frightened by her insane immigration policies.
The choice of debt-ridden Greece, Europe’s worst economic basket case, was oddly appropriate as the location for the start of the swansong tour of the U.S. president who has produced as much American national debt in eight years as all previous American presidents had produced over a span of 220 years combined. One must wonder if Mr. Obama views pauper Greece as the model America should emulate.
