    Is Obama's credibility becoming a problem?

    Obama claims not to have known about the Obamacare computer problems, the IRS targeting conservatives, Benghazi, NSA wiretapping, etc.  He's either the most clueless president ever or refuses to accept responsibility.  The buck never seem to stop with him.  How much longer are the liberals, progressives, and Obamatons going to keep believing this guy?

    Obama KNOWS exactly what he is doing.  He knows that Obama"care" is not going to work.  However, that is NOT his concern.  He has an agenda.  Obama"care" is HIS baby and he will do ANYTHING to implement this health insurance fiasco.   

    As smart people know and are now realizing Obama was reared and inculcated in the socialist methodology.  He wants America to be a socialist state with "equal" income distribution, a bigger, more centralized and more intusive government, and socialized health care.   His premise is not the individual but the whole society. 

    Although Obama claimed that once he became president, there would be no more wars and intrusions into the rights of Americans, the opposite has occurred.  He is making ex-President Bush look like a choirboy.  He has taken intrusiveness to the multillionth degree.  There is the Fast and Furious, Benghazigate, forgot about the IRS singling out those whose political viewpoints differ.  Dr. Ben Carson remarked that after his speech at the President's breakfast, IRS wanted to "speak" to them.  Yes, Dr. Carson, as a conservative, was subject to the IRS procedures.  Then there is the war on Syria.  NEED I say MORE?

    Many Lieberals are deluded by Obama.  They view Obama as their anointed savior who can do no wrong.  They refuse to acknowledge this.  In fact, they often become quite vitriolic when such issues are brought up.  These are the same people who attacked ex-President Bush when he committed excesses; however, when Obama does the same and more, such excesses are either denied or considered to be a nonissue as far as the Lieberals go.    Not only Lieberal Democrats voted for Obama, there were some Lieberal Republicans who also voted for Obama. 

    Many clueless people viewed Obama as that breath of "fresh air".  He was considered to be the new face of politics.  Many people placed their hopes that Obama would change the country.  Also, Obama is the sacred cow who can do no wrong because he is the first Black president.   Therefore, to many Lieberals and their allies, to criticize Obama is to be considered, well...........racist!   Sadly, many people adamantly refuse to see Obama for what he actually is.  He is destroying the country.

    Obama refuse to admit that his policies are wrong.He believes in the blame game As a president, it is his duty to improve the socioeconomic situation of the country. However, he STILL puts the blame on Bush. This is HIS second term and this is becoming very tired indeed!

    Obama is an artist at "selective knowledge."  If anything will work to his benefit, he knows all about it.  If this administration gets caught doing something that makes him look bad, he knows nothing.

      Couldn't have agreed with you more, Mr. Poolman!

    I am disappointed in Obama's presidency and I have to agree he is either clueless and useless or this is his way of deflecting responsibility.  These are major problems and snafus in his presidency and on his watch and so he is totally responsible.  In the case of Benghazi he is commander in chief for heaven's sake.  Yes, he got Bin Laden but there is so much more he has dropped the ball on.  He should be in the loop at all times and be seems not to be.  I don't understand this unless racism is raising its ugly head.  I think Obama care is quite convoluted but it is all we have at the moment.  We need a national health insurance program in this country, but it should not be this difficult to use.

      In utter and in total agreement, Suzette.  Obama was so full of promise in the beginning; however, his administration has proven to be a grand disappointment. He also has an insidious agenda for this country.  The writing is ON THE WALL!

      Most any group of people without a leader becomes nothing but an unruly mob.  Congress is now just a mob because there is no leadership.  Is it any wonder they get nothing done to help the citizens of this country?

    While it is hard to improve upon GM's answer I must say it is really hard to golf (and vacation) as much as he does and know what is going on with all these government "distractions" from his game. I mean look at Tiger and what his affairs did to his game. I'll bet that is why BO golfed privately with Tiger. Tiger wanted to know a few tips on how to keep "phoney" scandals from affecting his game.
    Barachio never, in his entire career, gave anyone reason to believe anything he said (except perhaps that he wanted to fundamentally change America).That's why he got where he is - the basic qualification for liberals and progressives, is that he says what people want to hear but does what  liberals and progressives want done (single-payer on the way).
    As far as  and Obamatons (Obombies) are concerned they simply swoon over anything he says because what comes out of his brain is their nourishment and they just can't be killed as long as he is there to feed them (figuratively and literally ).
    In the end his lack of credibility is nothing new, he never had any credibility to start with and those who know that are meaningless to him, his followers or his agenda. Isn't that in-credibile!

    Increasing incredulity to willful ignorance of the incommensurable equivocator.

    When he first ran for office I looked at his past voting record in the Senate. It wasn't good, IMHO, he was among the top spenders and pork promoters a true cog in the Illinois political machine, the country's most corrupt.
    Credibility is like respect, you can only get it by earning it, he hasn't earned it.
    Because I gave him little to no credibility to begin with he has only confirmed by evaluation of him he doesn't have any credibility with me, in fact les than he did when he first took office.

      At that time he was known as the most liberal Senator in DC.  Knowing that he presented himself as a pragmatic moderate which almost made me puke.  People bit into his empty rhetoric and many still do.

      I think he only won because of who he ran against and the corrupt media that ignored and put down Paul. Crazy grandpa and his "special needs" daughter then Romney / Ryan? Do they go door to door looking for the unelectable? Bush bad Obama no better

    Becoming? The real problem is that so many people are still willing to give him a free ride and a blank check.

      Ah ha, the same people who criticized Bush for his flagrant policy abuse either prefer to ignore and/or rationalize Obama for more flagrant policy abuses.Obama is deified & seen as the sacred cow. Oh God forbid that one DARES to critique MR. ELEC

    I've said since he came on the scene that he is a pathological liar and have shown it time after time after time.  Those who continue to worship at his altar have to be either nuts or on the dole.  Maybe both? This latest thing about lying about keeping your insurance since 2010 should be the last straw with the American people.  I do not expect the President of the United states to continually lie to the people.  That is unacceptable.

      Isn't it unbelievable that now Obama's henchmen when asked about his lie keeping your insurance all reply "most' people will keep it, lying about lying as most people won't be able to keep their doctor or their health insurance,still lied didn't  he

      So a Prez that lies only some of the time would be acceptable?    ;p

      Your inference is totally wrong - I'd infer from his statement that even one lie is unacceptable.

    Don't you have to do something worthy of credibility, before you can ever assess credibility? Of course you would have to. However, Obama hasn't proven to be truthful, much less, anything else. So that instantly destroys any credibility that could ever possibly be assessed.

    To an intellectually honest person, he never had any credibility because nothing this man ever promised was ever practical or realistic.  It didn't take a genius to figure out what he was all about.  Only someone who was paying attention.   But to at least a small degree, he is finally being challenged by the mainstream media.  They played a major role in building up this massive fraud of a man pushed on the American people.  And today they are little by little being forced to face the disaster that his administration has become.   

    You can only be "unaware", "not informed" and "not told" so many times before you're anything other than totally incompetent.  And this administration is unequivocally incompetent at a level not ever seen by any administration before in American history.  About the only person who is ecstatic right about now is Jimmy Carter.  He is fortunate enough to have lived long enough to see an administration even less competent than his.  In fact Carter's team would be welcomed as saviors compared to this disaster.  The only thing that amazes me to this day is that there were enough people out there to fall for the soaring rhetoric of a Presidential candidate who had literally no experience running anything of any substance before running for the highest office in the land.   

    Then again, George Carlin said it best.  He once said..."Think about how stupid the Average American is...and half the people are even dumber than that".
