Hate To Say I Told You So...

Updated on June 10, 2014

But I told you so none-the-less. Due to either the utter stupidity of the majority of American voters or their gullibility to believe the biggest bunch of cow patty rhetoric ever dished out by anyone I can think of in my life time, we're right up the proverbial creek without a paddle. If you weren't looking for that certain creek before you voted for the likes of a Barack Hussein Obama you found it when you did.

I haven't written in a while because I have been amazed, which is usually hard to do for with a political writer, at the absolute morass Obama has created in such a short span of his public servant life. Don't take that public servant part to heart because Barack and Moochelle are all about themselves and not the good of the country. But there is always that one straw that will break the political camel writer's block and I've reached that point.

This administration has become a complete and utter head spinner. How does one keep up with the pace of scandals, missteps and sheer lunacy of a person not fit to occupy the Oval Office from the get go?

Pile ups are rampant with this crowd. They seem to learn everything on the news and if so who the hell is in charge of this country? The latest is the Bergdahl/Taliban exchange which was another flagrant breaking of a law. Between that and the Veteran's Administration disaster, on top of the IRS boondoggle compounded by the Benghazi arms running deaths one has to wonder why Obama is still sitting there in the chair he isn't qualified to occupy.

We've elected the biggest fraud to ever grace our political presence is at the root of the problems we now face. He's a hapless, bumbling idiot without a teleprompter to tell him what to say and it shows. Our economy is in a contraction and maybe, except for a superb smoke and mirrors routine combined with a masterful manipulation of numbers, we never left a recession in the first place.

Remember the guy who was going to make the oceans recede by the sheer power of his mouth? Have you figured out yet how much hot air this guy has without lifting a cheek one? The One was going to heal the planet just by his mere presence as the President of the United States. The problem is, was and always will be he doesn't have a clue as to how to do any of what his teleprompter told him to say.

Look anyone who even believed that he made the types of statements he made about oceans and planet healing is amazing. Then they went ahead and voted for him anyway? Now how stupid is that mentality? That whole scenario was plain emotional appeal and we know from the past how historical figures have ridden that pony to doom.

It was a conundrum of the times of people tiring of Bush, the Iraq War and the collapse of the entire mortgage market pyramid Bill Clinton built back in the latter years he was in office. Yes, it takes about 10 years for a major economic policy to come full force to this economy and we saw it happen like a dump truck dumping garbage.

Along comes a snake oil salesman named Barack Hussein Obama peddling the idea that an activist federal government can heal all our ails. Never has nor will it. It compounds the problem and never has been or will be the cure.

Right out of gate we saw close to a trillion dollar stimulus package full of pork crammed down the tax payer's throats. It yielded very little except political payback. Oh I forgot. It began the explosion of the national debt we have been witnessing. Government by printing press never worked either.

The next eighteen months were spent tearing our health care system apart to give the federal power mongers control of one of the most important things (health care) to the average American worker. Obamacare has proved to be a disaster in case you've been falling asleep. So face the music. The guy you entrusted to heal the planet, you and yours has been misusing and abusing the levers of government all along to attack anyone who disputes his nonsense and has no more respect for the US Constitution than King George III would have had.

It's gone down hill since then with an enormous expansion of the federal government. The guy who was going to scrub the bureaucracy from top to bottom didn't even own a bottle brush. So where was the fly in the ointment? The federal government doesn't have the power, much less the competency, to solve the myriad of problems people think it can solve. Try solving your own problems first is the key to any success in that arena.

This is a two fold fly as ointments go. Washington DC is populated by "big government" types who are totally delusional about both that ability and secondly they think they are brilliant along the way. They are dazzled by their own brilliance while dishing out their proverbial BS. How did the IRS abuse happen? Did it have an inkling of these idiots thinking their political survival was in jeopardy?

What has our political system come to when those we elect think that the most important thing in the world is their own skin in the game and their political party's acumen in pulling the wool over the tax payer's eyes?

Ultimately the buck stops with those of us who pay taxes. We float their boat. Their answer is to tax more, spend more, print more in an effort to cover up their mismanagement and criminality in squandering our tax dollars. If they aren't getting the results they want, and lately that is usually the case, it is always somebody else's fault. Obama is famous for pointing his bony finger at others. It isn't his failed policies it is racism, this that or the other and the list gets tiresome.

If the policy is flawed then ignore it and continue to push forward regardless. Deal with those who present obstacles to perpetuating your own failures seems to be the watch word these days. Talk about "phony scandals" rather than the reality of the soup sandwich that has been created by incompetence.

So the biggest fraud ever elected has ascended and brought with him, and surrounded himself with, those who idolize the left wing ideology often at the cost of truth itself. There is a difference between being political and having the skills necessary to lead. This isn't a game we are playing with our country or is it?

Evil Or Stupid?

Now that I've got that out of my system have a great week.

Will I mind if you share these observations with your family and vast array of friends? Not at all.

As Always,

The Frog Prince

      Obama is DESTROYING this country. This was his agenda from the git-go. First, he was intent upon destroying our socioeconomic system. He hates those who achieve, wanting to penalize them and to "equally" distribute income to the so-called have nots. Then he instituted Obama"care" which is a DISaster. Our health care system was good the way it was. Oh no, this fool in the White House wanted "better" "for the people". Then there is NOW the straw that is breaking the camel's back, granting illegals amnesty to America. Mind you these illegals have no transferrable skills nor education. Our system is going to be taxed further with these people.

      Obama has an operandi modus in mind. He is a socialsts who hates this country. This was apparent in how he denigrated our illustrious Constitution and refusing to salute our flag at ceremonies. He is clearly anti-American; there is a saying that with friends like these, who needs enemies. He is clearly putting American under the bus. He is the most traitorous American president ever and the idiotic Lieberals still applaud him.

      This is similar to Germans applauding and following Hitler although it was becoming apparent that Hitler was leading Germany to her eventual downfall. That is what Obama is doing- destroying and dismantling America little by little. America is going from a first world nation to a third world nation. America is being disrespected around the world. Obama is the anti-Reagan. At least, Reagan made the world respect America and believed that America was the light of the world. Obama's intent is to make America the dungheap of the world. When I hear people still praising Obama, I just want to b-----slap them into consciousness and reality!

      If it was about me I would pick a side. The side I am on is the one that does the most for ordinary people and that side seems to be missing. With that voiced silenced because they were told to shut up, I am not surprised by the number of radicals I meet. Before you join the Revolution its always wise to allow enough time for the radicals to kill one another first.

      I think alot of this doubling down on failures is due to narcissism. Obama simply is incapable of admitting he is wrong on anything. So when his policies fail, and they all do, he just ups the ante, and the crises he created become more expensive crises. And everything is always somebody else's fault, but never his. The VA backlog - that's due to climate change. Soaring costs under Obamacare - the Koch brothers did that. Yada yada yada.

      Sanctuary, "Mick the millionaire?" Do you mean "Mit" Romney? Might as well be Mickey the Mouse in the context (if there is a context) of your comment. You sound like a child crying that you can't get your way. It's all about you.

      Sanxuary, Obama deserves every bit of criticism leveled at him in this piece. All our politicians are bad, regardless of party, but Obama has gone to new heights. Yes, those who came before him DID lay the groundwork that has allowed Obama to do so much damage - but it's Obama doing the damage now, not Bush, not Clinton or Bush Sr.

      I assume that you our criticizing Obama but in comparison to what? Was Mick the millionaire who could care even less that a middle class even exists, going to do a finer job? Even if someone had a great idea I doubt that it would go anywhere. No American voted for health care, the so called elected leaders decided that. No American got a copy of the plans and we are still clueless as to what this plan might be. Its full of garbage, untruths and does not benefit everyone. Still Obama is only one person and it was passed before he was elected. During all this time everything possible was done to impede it, is it any wonder that its a mess. Even if the Republicans had won it still would be here and still no one outside of our government has ever voted for it. We are born to be consumers and if you have a job, you probably work like a slave. Is it not puzzling that these same slaves go to the store and treat other slaves like crap. Then you get to go back to your job and be treated the same way. Picking the lesser of two evils is not really much of a choice. The results are not even a surprise but shutting ones mouth is the last thing I will do. I do not pick sides when neither one of them will ever favor me. Its not Democracy, its two lousy choices and the both of them promise poverty.

      Frog, Sanxuary reminds me of the mountain lion who killed and ate a bull. After eating he felt so good and full he opened his mouth and let out a huge roar. A hunter nearby heard the mountain lion roar and killed him.

      So the moral of the story?

      If you are full of bull keep your mouth shut!

      Curious, what were you going to get with the corporate minded back room millionaires of the Republican party? Another 911, another phony war and another financial melt down? I could careless about either political party but you really did not tell me anything. More bland accusation that can not trump the comparisons, not to mention the facts that your own party voted for this health care long before it ever was called Obama care. The past eludes those who write only of there own agendas for false purpose. Do you love the Republican party so much that you would defy the Geneva Convention and torture people? Does your political agenda come from big oil and bankers and future royalties? I could go on for days and describe a Dictator and the worst president to ever tarnish the American image. I have no trust in a two party monopoly of already bought and chosen candidates. These two parties could never claim to be a party of change since they have been playing the people for well over a hundred years. All you can do is criticize the latest one in power and forget how terrible the last one was. If you are anything like the average American you really should wise up and know that they represent a select interest and not the interest of the people. If they did your jobs and technology would be in America, your wages would not have decreased since I was born and your children would have a better future.

      Great piece that sums up the condition of America. And what a question to end with: Is he evil or stupid? The answer is BOTH. I contend that if he was evil and brilliant the country would be doubly screwed.

      This is a great hub and what you said is all true. I think the both of his elections were rigged considering the whole Dallas football team was registed to vote in Nevada, and so forth.

      This man wants to see the destruction of the USA and he probably is a Muslim just as he was raised. We have allowed this egomaniac get away with numerous illegal activities and scams. That is a good video and your hub is awesome!

      Long ago, FDR taught the American people that politicians could buy votes with handouts and the voter could embrace a perception of success out of desperation and apathy (i.e. Roosevelt's 12 years of policy failure finally bailed out by WWII). Obama's allegiance and that of his minions lies with the philosophy of a Socialist/Marxist/Communist future for America. Things are run on authority rather than respect, a necessary ingredient in the leadership recipe. Bill Clinton lied for the sake of lieing but Barack Obama lies for some very sinister reasons. His action in office are driven by those same beliefs and reasons and they all point to an America in which the middle-income wage earner no longer exists. Obama cannot destroy the wealthy but he can buy the votes of the poor on the backs of working Americans. He is doing and that will continue. This terrorist swap is only a taste of what we are in for over the next three years. We all should send signed "Thank You" cards to the Republican leadership in Washington for so ably assisting Obama and his left wing forces in undermining the Constitution and the very foundation that America stands upon. The price of our stupidity will be enormous if not fatal. ~WB

      Obama is a product of our society today. We a have a "give me" generation that has allowed this type of individual become the most lawless, the most self-absorbed narcissist president in our history. What is sad is that this same society is set up to protect him from any repercussions of his reckless actions. Send guns to drug cartels that kills over a hundred Mexicans and kills at least 2 law enforcement agents? It's a fake scandal. Send five terrorists in trade for an army deserter? Obama was only following in the grand tradition of never leaving a fellow soldier behind. And the MSM laps it up. Obama is the true "Teflon Don." He can do as he pleases. He can take credit for anything he pleases. And the band plays on.

      BTW that "evil or stupid" video is great! Every main stream media outlet should be airing it in prime time every day! This should go viral. The good news is this video has 38,000 views in just 4 days! The you tube videos about Bush being evil or stupid haven't been viewed by that many in 6 years!

      The news of this 'prisoner' exchange actually nauseated me.This young man decided to desert;He went AWOL.That's bad enough but...someone needs to tell the parents of the young soldiers who died searching for him...and the young soldiers who died capturing the five shit bags,that their sons died for nothing.I've been somewhat ambiguous about politics because it's a side show,a distraction,a system that through the American people over board forty years ago....but now I long for the old days when deserters were shot...not coddled.Thanks FP for laying it out for real.

      Frog Prince, never be afraid of your voice. When you are right and spot on, SAY IT LOUD. If others like it, fine; if not, too bad. This was a great hub. America is not what she used to be. I thought I would not live to see this. When I was younger, I thought that when I reached the age I am now( ain't divulging), America would be beyond what it was in the 1960s, it was great then. LOOK at it now it is enough to make the strongest man cry buckets!

      First, my thoughts on the second election is that it was rigged. In fact, if you remember correctly, ovomit actually cried when he won because it was quite apparent he didn't think the rigging would work as his handlers told him it would.

      Next: he is not as stupid as he appears to be. He is dumb like a fox. It is in the cards for America to go bankrupt. It is also in the cards for this country to fail on many levels if the elite have their way. We cannot lose sight of the fact that his usurper and fraud is a Muslim through and through. There are now no less than 7 members of the Muslim Brotherhood surrounding him in DC, and since the House and Senate cannot do anything constructive indicates to me at lease that there is a lot of "persuasion" going on; perhaps in the form of threats. When have so few in our government ever been so silent? For example, anybody heard a peep out of Ms. Bachmann lately? And look at the Supreme Court's decision on 0vomitcare! It's a tax - my royal rear end!

      And last but not least, we cannot throw God under the bus in all this. We as a country have destroyed every aspect of help we might have had from our Creator when we decided to 1) sanction the death of infants, 2) accept homosexuality as a legitimate way of life, and 3) Took God out of our schools. Are we to now expect mercy? HAHAHAHAHAHA Get real, folks, it ain't gonna happen! The minute we started turning our backs on what was right and Godly, we sealed our doom. If we ever hope to have anything left of this country, we had better shape up and get our priorities straight where our Creator is concerned in a huge hurry because this train wreck is coming directly at us full throttle.

      "absolute morass" is the truth but when you say "How does one keep up with the pace of scandals, missteps and sheer lunacy of a person not fit to occupy the Oval Office from the get go?" the answer is "What scandals and missteps.?"

      If your media sources are NBC ABC and CBS you've hardly heard anything about them! None of them! After their viewer's brains are barraged with the other worthless stories the networks spend hours and days and weeks on the average viewer doesn't even remember a scandal (?) a controversy (?) or a government misstep (?) was ever mentioned.

      In a Month, TV News Gives Less Airtime to VA Scandal than Christie Controversy Received in Four Days.

      I still don't understand why Obama is considered a black president. It's not because his father was black because coming from a biracial marriage he very well could have been born white.

      Do you think anyone would consider him the first black president if his pigment wasn't dark? So do you think he would have been elected if his pigment wasn't dark but white....I doubt he would have ever even gotten into politics had he been born white despite having a black father. So anyone who even considers his pigment color an aspect of any analysis of his character, competence, intelligence, impeach-ability actually is a racist, a racist of the worst kind because it is a ruse to do so and just plain diabolical.

      This is the end of the line. This is the moment when push comes to shove. Obama has broken every law , slapped the American people in the face and dispensed with Congress. How much more ca we take before there is nowhere back to what we once were. Voted up awesome, useful and interesting. I don't think you care but I did it anyway.
