British newspaper calls Obama “ineffectual, invisible, the weakest president in history”

by editor on March 23, 2011

Pip, pip, cheerio, chaps. Blimey, guv-nah! (Sorry, but that’s the best we can do at faking that language they speak in the United Kingdom).

The Express UK says what American newspapers are so hesitant to say, in an article entitled, “BARACK OBAMA: THE WEAKEST PRESIDENT IN HISTORY?”:

obama-golf

When the Brits said, "It's tea time," President Obama said, "Let's play 18."

INEFFECTUAL, invisible, unable to honour pledges and now blamed for letting Gaddafi off the hook. Why Obama’s gone from ‘Yes we can’ to ‘Er, maybe we shouldn’t’

Let us cast our minds back to those remarkable days in November 2008 when the son of a Kenyan goatherd was elected to the White House. It was a bright new dawn – even brighter than the coming of the Kennedys and their new Camelot. JFK may be considered as being from an ethnic and religious minority – Irish and Catholic – but he was still very rich and very white. Barack Obama, by contrast, was a true breakthrough president. The world would change because obviously America had changed.



Obama’s campaign slogan was mesmerisingly simple and brimming with self-belief: “Yes we can.” His presidency, however, is turning out to be more about “no we won’t.” Even more worryingly, it seems to be very much about: “Maybe we can… do what, exactly?“ The world feels like a dangerous place when leaders are seen to lack certitude but the only thing President Obama seems decisive about is his indecision. What should the US do about Libya? What should the US do about the Middle East in general? What about the country’s crippling debts? What is the US going to do about Afghanistan, about Iran?



What is President Obama doing about anything? The most alarming answer – your guess is as good as mine – is also, frankly, the most accurate one. What the President is not doing is being clear, resolute and pro-active, which is surely a big part of his job description.

Amazing, isn’t it, that people who have English as a second language would be able to state the situation so clearly.

I say he’s our 1st mulatto president, just in an attempt to bring back the word. That & the definition is having 1 black parent & 1 white parent.

LOL. “Asian Golfer Tiger Woods.” I’ve never heard that on ESPN! He could have a great nickname too: The Asian Tiger.

Hey Mistella! What do you have against women? I call him the first turd president. Although there have been turds in the White House before, none have been so blatant as this one.

Halle Berry recently (in the past few months) said in Jet magazine that her daughter is black as far as she is concerned because she believes in the one drop rule, basically stating that her father who is white is not equipped to take care of her black daughter as she a black woman could. Halle Berry is also half black, half white and for her to state the one drop rule she is ignorant as she doesn’t even understand that was a racist way of determining who was black (who was a jew) when the government(s) decided it was time to segregated people due to their race. The fact that she is half white is not that heavily discussed when she got the cover of Vogue last year it was a great milestone for some reason becuase she is black… I mean really?

An old friend of mine, now deceased, who happened to be black, brought to my attention a term his mother used that would accurately describe obama. My friend was of a complexion similar to obama’s, and his mom once called him a “shit colored n—–”. I know this may offend some, and if so, I’m sorry that you are offended, but I damn near died laughing when he said it.

I gave you a thumbs up, but I got to tell you Mistella I am quite positive a real conservative woman would be far far better than Obama… heck even a Democrat liberal like Hilary when she sees the writing on the wall and toes the centrist line would be far better than Obama.

Just to be fair, the United Kingdom is not throwing stones at anyone, at least not directly connected with this editorial. The Express UK is throwing stones, and I do not know for a fact that this paper has not been equally critical of the UK’s “official” policies in re all the other points you mention.

See what happens when you cover the symbol of what the world recognizes as the Cross of Jesus? He threw a sheet over it because it was in the background of a speech he was giving (probably at a university), You think God is on his side? I think Obama would rather preach in a mosque.

At least the British Press are getting it right. It looks like the bloom is off the rose and all that is left now is the thorns. We the People of the United States are left holding it until 1/20/13.

Thank all of you inept US medias who just felt it was time to have a black man in the White House and covered up all of barry’s short comings and previous actions. As for the foolish ones who bought the hope and change and yes we can. Do you have buyers remorse?

Is Obama the weakest President in American history? Is he worse than James Buchanan, Chester Arthur, Warren G. Harding or Jimmy Carter?

Yes, yes he is. We all know it and the foreign press is finally saying it. Eventually the American MSM will be forced to admit the truth (probably after the 2012 election).

From people who worked with Barack Obama when he was only a community organizer in Chicago, they say he was lazy and always wanted to “take a break” and put things off until later.

Because one can be judged by how they conduct themselves on the golf course. He can bluff his way through a debate & not answer the questions as asked. He did just that, with the help of the moderators as well. But on the golf course, nothing would save him. No affirmative action, no ass kissing by the MSM, no telepromters, nothing, could save his ass out there.

All you need to wipe out a guy like Obama in a debate, is a moderator who will just ask the same question again if it isn’t answered the first time.

His real father was not a goat herder- that was (part of) the storyline. His real father was Frank Marshall Davis who was watched by the FBI..a Communist who worked in cahoots with the Communist party. It was through these connections that the red diaper baby- known as Barack Obama -made his move. Once he said he was Frank Marshall Davis’s boy, they hooked him up. Barack Obama (from Kenya) was offered a deal to get a Ph.D at Harvard if he claimed that he was the father. Why do you think Frank Marshall Davis “mentored” him for years..in Marxism! FYI: Franky Jr. aka Barack Obama was a “C” student- never even wrote a single article for the HLR..and he was President of that club! More than $5M was spent to conceal records upon taking office; all/most of the witnesses- including his Grandmother -disappeared..what a curiosity? Watch “Dreams of My Real Father”..will blow you away!

What’s so interesting about this article is that a (now not-so-conservative) world power such as the UK can so easily see through the outward facade of this (liberal) do-nothing Prez. This is despite the fact that so many in our USA seem totally blinded by him & his “charm”(???).

When a leader of a world power is weak and ineffectual, it becomes glaringly obvious to all . . . Except perhaps those too close to be able to see things objectively. As one quote goes, “the problem isn’t so much with Obama but those who elected (and re-elected) him!
