Obama Report Card -- A Five week Litany of Disaster on the Domestic and Foreign Policy Front

By Gary Starr for The Neville Awards
February 21, 2009

Grade: F

So far it's Amateur Hour. Everyone in the liberal 'in the tank for Obama' media reassured us "oh, you know, he'll move to the center once he takes office...and he'll surround himself with smartest centrist people." Is anyone surprised that the exact opposite has happened? We don't want to say we told...oh never mind.

We at Neville were going to wait until the 100 day "honeymoon" was over to hand Obama his report card but the tragic march to Socialism and the soft tyranny that always accompanies it is just too obvious to ignore.

The Nazis couldn't do it, the Imperialist Japanese couldn't do it, the Soviets couldn't do it and the Jihadists couldn't do it.

But our Fraudinator-In-Chief Barack Obama, using constant gloom and doom rhetoric, with the help of his willing accomplices in Congress, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, and with an enabling and slobbering liberal media has managed to do in a scant four weeks what our enemies couldn't do. They have practically brought the country to its knees.

It took "President" Jimmuh Cahter four years to accomplish what this gang of incompetents have done in this astonishingly short time.

Using the recession as cover and the excuse they have gone on a bankrupting spending spree. The administration is also AWOL on foreign policy and national security. There have been numerous articles about everything listed here. But one doesn't get the full picture of this unfolding disaster and train wreck until you see everything wrapped up in one place.

Herewith...the five week report card...a litany of disasters.

The Domestic Front

  • The stock market is in free fall since the inauguration -- market traders don't like socialists
  • Obama has appointed pay-to-play tax cheats to his cabinet and staff including Sec. Treasurer Tim Geithner (confirmed), Tom Daschle who was forced to withdraw his name, Nancy Kilifer who was forced to withdraw her name, Bill Richardson who was forced to withdraw his name, and Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel who lived rent free for years in the home of Rep. Rosa De Lauro (D-Conn.) - and failed to disclose the gift, as congressional ethics rules mandate. This list will continue to grow. Update March 2, 2009: Obama's pick for U.S. Trade Rep. didn't pay taxes for speeches and deducted as a business expense season tickets for the Dallas Mavericks.
  • $800B Pork-a-Palooza Stimulus Bill--a 1073 pork-laden monstrosity rammed through Congress that nobody had time to read and was not posted online as promised for 48 hrs before the vote was taken.
  • $275B Mortgage Rescue Bill -- rewards people who can't pay their mortgages with a bailout. These folks shouldn't have gotten mortgages in the first place..what makes us think they will pay their mortgages now? See the Chicago Tea Party Video below.
  • Census Takeover -- it is written in the Constitution that the Commerce Department shall have the sole authority to conduct a census every 10 years. The Obama administration has put oversight of this process in the office of Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel. This means the process will be politicized because they can now goose (over-estimate) the numbers in favor of the uncounted poor and the illegal immigrants. This naked power grab means favorable redistricting for the Democratic Party for years to come and possibly resulting in a permanent majority for the next 25 years. This should be challenged as unconstitutional ASAP.
Chicago Tea Party

"The government is promoting bad behavior... do we really want to subsidize the losers' mortgages... This is America! How many of you people want to pay for your neighbor's mortgage? Obama are you listening? How about we all stop paying our mortgage! It's a moral hazard..."

The Foriegn Policy & National Security Front

  • His first call to any head of state as president was to Mahmoud Abbas, leader of Fatah party in the Palestinian territory.
  • His first one on one interview with any news organization was with Al Arabia television.
  • He ordered Guantanamo Bay closed and all military trials of detainees halted.
  • He ordered all overseas CIA interrogation centers closed.
  • He withdrew all charges against the masterminds behind the USS Cole and 9/11.
  • He appointed an Attorney General and Justice Department officials on record as opposed to the use of "enhanced" interrogation techniques in terror investigations.
  • By executive order Obama has allocated $20.3 million in "post-conflict humanitarian aid" to "Palestinian refugees and conflict victims in Hamas-controlled Gaza. The additional funds bring to $60 million U.S. aid commitments in Gaza.
  • Obama has signed an executive order presidential determination which allows hundreds of thousands of Palestinians with ties to Hamas to resettle in the United States
  • Responding to signs of Obama's weakness on Terror Enforcement The Associated Press reported, on February 8th, that Yemen, which boasts of having a "truce" with al Qaeda, "released 170 men it had arrested on suspicion of having ties to al Qaeda." The announcement came "two weeks after al Qaeda announced that Yemen had become the base of its activities for the whole Arabian Peninsula."
  • Responding to signs of Obama's weakness on Terror Enforcement Pakistan, a supposed ally, has just concluded a deal with the Taliban ceding to its control an area on the Afghan/Paki border which its troops had, unsuccessfully, tried to capture. The Taliban now has the same deal it had in Afghanistan - a protected sanctuary from which to launch raids on the West.
  • By executive order Obama has decided to end sanctions against Iran in the face of Iran's continued development of nuclear technology and Iran's continued support of Hamas and Hezbollah.
  • Iran has launched it's first satellite nicknamed "Hope". Where's the change? Iran can now easily launch nuclear-tipped missles into Europe and Asia.
  • Obama has decided on a new U.S. ambassador to Syria and is expected to lift sanctions on it's military and energy programs. Syria is charged with aiding Al Qaida in Iraq and secretly building a nuclear reactor with North Korean assistance.
  • Canada and Brussels have bristled over the protectionist "Buy American" slant of the new Stimulus package.
  • Kyrgestan is kicking the United States Air Force out of our main re-supply base to Aghanistan. The Russians are kicking in $200 million in aid and have expressssed interest re-engaging in Afghanistan so they need the base now.
  • After Obama offered to help India in it's "negotiations" with Pakistan over Kashmir Obama was told he was "barking up the wrong tree."
  • California Senator Diane Feinstein recently blew the cover on a secret CIA program, revealing that Predator attack drones, which we use to attack Taliban and al-Qeada safe havens, and recently killed 27 al-Qaeda terrorists in Pakistan originated in that country, stating , "as I understand it..[the flights] are flown out of a Pakistani base." This policy that Pakistan has publically protested, provided Pakistan with plausible deniability. Feinstein sits on the Senate Intelligence Committee. Way to go Dianne!!
  • Obama is ready to look at re-modeling our missile defense plans to include Moscow in a concession to Russian opposition. The Kremlin has been pressing Washington to give ground on the proposed missile shield in exchange for Russia helping supply the U.S.-led military campaign in Afghanistan.
And this only after five weeks...
