You’d think by now that President Obama would have learned not to make promises he can’t keep.  You’d also think that Americans would have learned not to trust a man who doesn’t keep his promises.  Yet, here we are, well into Obama’s second term with a laundry list of broken promises and failures.  Even still, there’s a baffling number of Americans who remain infatuated with the President.  They say love conquers all, but when it comes to people who are love-struck by President Obama, their obsession is really only blinding them to the truth.

 

Consider the economy:  It sucks.

 

The month of July saw only 162,000 jobs added – 23,000 less than predicted.  The unemployment rate is at a dismal 7.4%, and we’re becoming a nation of part-time workers thanks to Obamacare.

 

The national deficit is through the roof at more than $16 trillion, with President Obama showing little effort to bring spending under control.

 

Remember the stimulus package that was supposed to “cut the deficit in half by the end of first term in office” and put “our nation on sound fiscal footing”?  Yeah, it didn’t work, either, and it’s just evidence of one of the President’s broken promises.

 

In 2009, Obama said, “If I don’t have this done in three years, then there’s going to be a one-term proposition.”  The President said it himself; if he didn’t turn the economy around in his first term, it’d probably be his only term.  Unfortunately, Obama’s lovesick followers wouldn’t settle for a one-term Obama presidency.

 

The economy isn’t the Obama administration’s only letdown.  Obama’s foreign policy decisions are a complete failure.  Take a look at Iran, Israel, Syria, Egypt, Iraq, Afghanistan … I could go on.

 

Since Obama became president, America’s standing […]

Back in January, President Obama declared that al-Qaeda had been decapitated and dismantled, and that they were incapable of attacking us again.  Tough talk from the biggest incompetent to ever stand behind the presidential seal.  Yet, during the month of Ramadan (July 9th to August 7th this year, based on the lunar calendar), the President has ordered several embassies – mostly in the Middle East, North Africa, and South Asia – closed and evacuated due to terrorist chatter approaching pre-9/11 levels.

 

For those that don’t know, the month of Ramadan is an Islamic month of holy war.  It’s a month for fighting the enemies of Allah, during which the Muslims believe they have special blessings and power from Allah to engage in Jihad and defeat their enemies.  For example:

 

1973 – Ramadan War-Yom Kipper War where Egypt and Syria launch war on Israel
1982 – Iran launches war on Iraq called “Operation Ramadan”
From 1987 to 1993 the first Palestinian intifada was waged over 6 Ramadans

 

From 624 AD to the present, many Islamic wars and battles are fought during Ramadan.  This is why, along with the additional chatter, the State Department issued the closures.  Ramadan is the month in which Muslims believe their god is with them to destroy non-Muslims.

 

And yet, if al-Qaeda has been dismantled, as the President claims, this shouldn’t be that big of a deal, right?  Right?  Scotland Yard was spot on with Obama a couple of years ago: “chalaque” . . . and probably too clever by half.

 

Likewise, President Obama’s speech last week on a “grand bargain” was recycled old ideas.  This was just the latest in a string of speeches on the economy.  Despite talk of a “bargain,” President Obama hasn’t sat down with […]
