Yes, Obama is still convinced that he is our savior. See the arrogance for yourself in this article from AP.

His policies got us out of this mess? This President really does think Americans are stupid!

First of all a lot of our problems have actually become worse. Our deficit is bigger under Barack Obama. Our unemployment is worse under Barack Obama. Partisanship is worse under Barack Obama. Lack of accountability and transparency is worse under Barack Obama. Spending is worse under Barack Obama. Barack Obama has accomplished a lot since taking office, but what has actually improved under him? The deficit and the spending are out of control. That was bad enough under Bush, but when Obama took office spending sped up and hasn’t seemed to slow down much since. We didn’t suddenly get a bunch of extra money to spend once Obama took office. He just started spending money we didn’t have. Or since he’s referring to the previous administration when he talks about the mess, maybe I should say that he has “continued” spending money we don’t have. And now he wants to take credit for solving all of our problems. What mess did Obama clean up? I must have missed something.

Second, how many of Obama’s policies are different from Bush’s? Hm, let’s see… Bush passes a stimulus, Obama passes a stimulus. Bush sends troops to war, Obama sends troops to war. Bush uses tactics like rendition and prolonged detention, Obama uses tactics like rendition and prolonged detention. Well, I guess there are a few differences. Bush decides to give up playing golf during his presidency, Obama decides to continue golfing whenever the hell he feels like it no matter how many catastrophes the nation is facing. Bush respects different opinions, Obama whines. Bush takes responsibility for his actions, Obama blames some retired guy on some ranch somewhere for all his problems.

The fact is that we still have a big mess and Obama has not turned it around. His stimulus bill was passed over a year and a half ago and we’re still waiting for that 8% unemployment we were promised. We never even got that and he is bragging about fixing the mess and solving our problems. Our problems are not solved and many policies are still the same. President Obama is not our savior.

Obama’s Parties

Barack Obama can pretend all he wants to that he has been a great leader through the Gulf oil spill, but the time line says otherwise. I won’t get into the matter of when Obama said what, though I may address that in another post. At the moment, I would like to focus on the parties and celebrations the White House has engaged in since this all started on April 20.

April 23-The Obamas go on a short weekend vacation in North Carolina. At the time, the situation was not as serious and the President was probably not aware that the situation was as bad as it really was or how much worse it would get. However, the Obamas taking a vacation does hurt Obama’s claim that he has been on this since day one.

April 26-Obama welcomes the Yankees to the White House. The New York Times headline was “Yankees Take Celebration to Washington”.

April 29-Obama attends a DNC fundraising dinner.

May 1-Obama gives a comedic speech at the White House Correspondents Dinner.

May 3-Obama honors Navy football team at the White House.

May 5-Cinco de Mayo party at the White House.

May 9-Commencement speech at Hampton University. I generally wouldn’t consider a commencement speech to be a problem, but at a time like this is it really a priority?

May 17-Obama welcomes University of Connecticut’s women’s basketball team to the White House.

May 19-State dinner at the White House honoring Mexican President Calderon.

May 24-Obama celebrates Asian Pacific Heritage Month.

May 25-Obama speaks at a fundraiser for Barbara Boxer.

May 27-Obama welcomes Duke Blue Devils to the White House.

May 27-Obama greets the US World Cup Team at the White House.

May 27-Obama celebrates Jewish American Heritage Month at the White House.

May 28-Obama sees the oil spill up close for the first time.

June 4-Obama says he won’t let BP nickel and dime people. Gee, thanks for making sure we’re covered on that, Barry. We certainly wouldn’t want to be nickel-and-dimed.

June 6-Congressional picnic. On the same day, Obama admits he has not communicated with the CEO of BP.

June 8-Obama wants to know who’s ass to kick. (How ya gonna kick ass, Obama? With another party?)

This man has not been a leader from day one. Based on the events I’ve laid out here it almost seems like the oil spill is not even a priority! Over a month after the explosion he hasn’t communicated with the BP CEO, but he has had time to meet all these sports teams? When we really have an environmental disaster on our hands like this can’t the President cut down onĀ  the White House parties and meeting sports teams? Is that too much to ask? It’s not just because he has claimed that he’s been such a great leader on this from day one. He shouldn’t be having all these parties out of respect for how much people are hurting right now. We have a bad economy, high unemployment, an environmental disaster, and a crushing debt and deficit. With the way the White House has been celebrating you would think America wasn’t facing any of these problems. The White House celebrations are not just a poor sign of leadership in a time of crisis. It’s downright unclassy. This man is not a leader. If this oil spill was really such a priority these parties and sports teams wouldn’t be.
