You must read this story. It’s a top priority.

President Obama hard at work on his real top priority

Kudos to CBS News, of all places. They noticed that President Obama has a tendency to say everything is a top priority. And we mean everything.

Perhaps that’s why he’s flailing and failing. No focus.

ECONOMIC RECOVERY: “Our top priority is to recover and rebuild from a recession that has touched the lives of nearly every American.” (6-15-10) Address to the Nation

JOB CREATION: “Creating jobs in the United States and ensuring a return to sustainable economic growth is the top priority for my Administration.” (3-11-10)

FREE TRADE AGREEMENTS: “…that’s something that’s going to be a top priority.” (4/27/10)

ENERGY SECURITY: “And that’s why my energy security plan has been one of the top priorities of my Administration since the day I took office.” (4/28/10)

EDUCATION REFORM: “To train our workers for the jobs of tomorrow, we’ve made education reform a top priority in this Administration.” (2/24/10)

STUDENT LOAN REFORM: “This is something that I’ve made a top priority.” (2/1/10)

EXPORTS BY SMALL BUSINESSES: “This is going to be a top priority.” (12/3/09)

HEALTH ASSISTANCE TO 9/11 FIRST RESPONDERS: “I’m not just talking the talk, we’ve been budgeting this as a top priority for this Administration.” (2/3/10)

END HOMELESSNESS AMONG VETERANS: “I’ve also directed (Veterans Affairs) Secretary Shinseki to focus on a top priority: reducing homeless among veterans.” (8/17/09)

HURRICANE PREPAREDNESS: “Our top priority is ensuring the public safety. That means appropriate sheltering in place or if necessary, getting as many people as possible out of harm’s way prior to landfall.” (5/29/09)

H1N1 FLU VACCINATIONS: “And throughout this process, my top priority has been the health and the safety of the American people.” (5/1/09)

SUPPORT FOR MILITARY FAMILIES: “These military families are heroes too. And they are a top priority of Michelle and me. And they will always have our support.” (5/30/09)

STRENTHENING TIES WITH CANADA AND MEXICO: “We’re going to make this a top priority…” (10/16/09)

CONSUMER PROTECTION: “During these challenging times, the needs of American consumers are a top priority of my Administration.” (2/11/09)

ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION: “So this is going to be a top priority generally improving our environmental quality.” (11/5/09)

Fact is, President Obama, if everything is a top priority, nothing is a top priority.

Perhaps you should follow one of the rare pieces of advice given by the IHTM Editor’s illustrious farmer father — “Pick one thing and do it well.”

One thing other than socializing the American economy, that is.

Good job CBS – better late than never!

Impeachment should be the top priority!

That’s what you call community organizing executive experience.

I bet he’s one of those assholes everyone knows at work that places the red IMPORTANCE flag on every other trivial email and uses “ASAP” as much as possible.

When I see red flagged emails it immediately tells me that they aren’t actually important.The pic above also looks like he is past the white markers on the tee-box (PENALTY!).

I bet he’s short off the tee and sucks as bad at golf as he does at bowling: http://www.shocked.org/obamas-bowling-scores-and-hypocrisy-should-disqualify-him-as-president/

When everything is a priority, nothing is a priority. And we are certainly seeing THAT theory in action.

I was going to write a brilliant reply, but my top priority right now is writing this instead.

Obama is just an MP3 player. His whole administration is an itunes download.

Obama’s list of “top priorities” looks like a score card for his failed agenda, administration and presidency. Not surprising that we are witnessing one of the most fantastic fails ever. But what do you expect from our first affirmative action president with the experience of a community organizer?

Making everything a top priority is his top priority.

Top priority; destroy the constitution, take over the private sector, forcibly take from those who work and provide for those who refuse to lift a hand to better themselves, create an economic meltdown of the United States monetary system and replace it with the international currency controlled by the world bank, insure Chicago style politic dominate government, provide free plane rides for votes, destroy the medical coverage of the working class American and replace it with obamacare (aka: unconstitutional socialist third country coverage) continually assert that the Muslin’s have been an intricate part of America and hide muslin pride (I will stand by my muslin brothers should the politics turn for the worst) Obama words from his book “and his faith” pretend that he did not hear a thing while sitting in his hate filled church with his hate filled wife for twenty years. Destroy the very fabric that makes America great in the name of social change. Obama and the rest of the D.C. crooks and thief’s should be on trial for treason to this country! Term limits, no retirement, citizen politicians.

We all know Obama’s disastrous priorities. Our priority should be throwing him out of office in 2012, if not sooner.

Well, it would be ” Priority-ist” to say one priority is better than another… as a liberal, all things equal all other things. I mean, we have to be fair, don’t we? we could hurt one of the priorities feelings…..

and my Top Priority is raising your taxes, making sure babies are killed before they’re born, supporting terrorist rights to build a Victory Mosque, and subverting the Constitution.

His top priority should be resignation and disappearing into obscurity where he and Michelle Antoinette belong. While there, he should learn to stop throwing like a chick, and kick the pot and cocaine habits! (that is a hint at things to come by the way).
He has made it so that another dem will not occupy the WH for the next hundred years, so he isn’t all bad-save for the fact it is going to take that long to reverse all the damage he has done.

I would love to believe that the dumbasses that voted for him have learned their lessons, but it will only last through the next Republican president, at which point, all the Obama damage that hasn’t yet been fixed will be blamed on the next guy. Then we will end up with something worse.

I think you called it right. Priority 1 is golf. I’d say priority 2 is vacations. The last priority is the USA.
