Time to Resign, Mr. President

If you had purchased a stock in January of this year that had lost as much of its value as Barack Obama, you would be desperate to sell it by now. The problem is, the only buyers would be the mainstream media and their stock has been falling too.




I cannot think of a single President in our 233 year history that was so disliked by so many Americans in so short a time. His polling numbers drop daily and he is poised to make history by losing the confidence and support vital to the ability to lead, let alone to administer the federal government.

It is his judgment that is the issue and, concurrent with that, his actions. If anyone would have predicted that he would impose so much debt on the nation in so short a time they would have been called mad. Barely seven months into his administration the estimated national deficit will be reset at nine trillion dollars between now and 2019.

The federal government now owns General Motors after advancing $60 billion to avoid bankruptcy and then standing by as it went into bankruptcy. We own a huge insurance company, AIG. The recent “Cash for Clunkers” program swiftly ran out of cash and may end up bankrupting participating auto dealers. It has already severely impacted the sale of used cars, a major part of the auto market.

Under Obama, an ever-increasing shadow government of “czars” has been established; people who are presumably not encumbered by the laws that govern appointed Cabinet secretaries. Most have not been vetted, nor approved by Congress and too many have unsavory backgrounds and beliefs.

The current attempt to take over one-sixth of the nation’s economy by socializing the healthcare system is being resisted by millions of Americans, some of whom are showing up at town hall meetings and creating “tea parties” to air their grievances. As many as a million will likely fill the streets of Washington to protest on September 12.

With the exception of liberalism’s “true believers”, some 28 percent of whom will always think Obama is doing a great job, people are wondering if there is some way to remove him from holding the office for the remainder of his term, doing even more damage.

Can a President resign? Yes, Richard Nixon did; the first in the history of the nation, undone by his own paranoia and over-zealous White House henchmen. That scenario is beginning to loom large in the minds of Americans when they give thought to those “czars” and White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, the man who never wants to “waste” a crisis.

Americans want to clean house. Congressmen returning from a stormy recess are going to assess the value of supporting the President, the Senate Majority Leader, or the Speaker of the House. The Democrats have near total political power in Congress, but there is a limit to party loyalty and it’s called getting re-elected.

Congress has tried the “bread and circuses” approach to calming the masses. It hasn’t worked. It has tried demonizing protesters as “un-American”. It hasn’t worked. It is running out of options and those that remain include internment camps.

America has demonstrated the ability to right itself after making bad decisions such as Prohibition and previous poor leadership. It is being put to the test again by Barack Obama.

It’s time to resign, Mr. President.

Oh, puh-leeze.

Only eight months in office, and he should resign already?

Quit the whining, guy. You gave your twit George Bush eight years, insisting all the while that he'd come through.

Much wishful thinking.

He is surrounded by sycophants who stroke each other.

They genuinely don't see a problem.

They think we dissenters are few.

We've got a surprise for them. We must stay the course.

Hey at least we got $600 cash in his first 8 months... what have we gotten from Obama?

It was Shrub (Republican) who wiped out the surplus.

it was Shrub who gave us this huge national debt.

It was Shrub who got us into a needless, useless war in Iraq.

By the way.....you all sneered at the so-called $600 stimulus when it happened. Shall I dig up the thread and remind you? That might sting.

YOUR guy.

The $13 'refund', like everything else about Obama is phony. It is not a refund, but a trick to get you to think that you are richer by forcing your employer to withhold at a lower rate.

At least a few of the whores in the media are bright enough to understand this, but they chose not to tell you.

A 'maker', not a 'taker'!
Bush was bad, 0bama is Bush on steroids. W brought us close to the edge, Zero is pushing us over the cliff while cutting our parachute cords. The Republicans (excuse the language) acted like Democrats (God forgive me) and put us into a financial spiral, the Socialist Dems, led my Pelosi, 0bama and Reid, are not acting like Truman Democrats, but like Alinsky radicals, and are going to bury us, maybe literally. Health care reform will give them the means.

Anyone who clings to a vision of the 0bamamessiah pulling us out of our nosedive has imbibed so much Kool-Aid they are pickled in it. Throwing out 'Bush did it' as a justification for following the Won into the abyss is beyond stupid, it's a symptom of a spiritual illness that pervades the land. We have the most anti-American, anti-Christian, anti-common sense leader of our history, and all the libtards can throw out is 'Bush did it, Bush was worse, your guy was the cause, nya nya nya'. The ones who say that will be the ones that have the most disillusionment when the whole house of cards comes crashing down. I got some news for you libtards, your 'god' cannot save you. He will be the death of America and maybe us all, and you will be the most shocked and betrayed. Heaven on earth is not possible, and the effort always leads to some of Hell's real estate being transplanted into terra firma.

LOL. Some people are too stupid to figure that out.
My, you are so not condescending......

BFD on the 13, the 76 the WTF ever it is. I don't care.

The real stupid people are those who think they're actually getting something for nothing. "Bread and Circuses" worked real well for the Roman Empire, and it looks like it works good for the 0bama regime as well.

There is NO free lunch. Pocket your 13 stinking dollars, give up your freedom. Thanks but no thanks.

Barry, it's about time you realized how incompetent you are and how badly you suck at this job you have. Nobody in the history of the country has managed to suck as bad in such a short amount of time as you have. If sucking out loud were a meritorious trait, you'd be due congratulations now. Unfortunately, this is still Planet Earth and this thing you're in the middle of is called "reality." They don't hand out awards for being a sniveling doofus. Get over yourself. Now.

Once you've gotten past your personal "shock and awe" caused by your new understanding of your embarrassingly feckless performance thus far, I know you'll agree that, in view of the abject, humiliating failure your presidency has become, it would be best if you leave now, while you can still gather whatever few broken shards of your dignity may remain. :lol:

ROTFLMAO.

The Narcissist in Chief is still convinced he's got it all well in hand. And when it finally occurs to him that, well... he doesn't... it's not going to be HIS fault. And hence, he won't see any reason at all to resign. However.. those traitorist terrorist "right wing nutcases"- THOSE are the problem! And eliminating them will change his pretendership back into a success- he hopes.

Watch out- a predator is often at it's most dangerous when cornered and out of options.

Come on !! My memory isn't that short. There was one who just left office only 7 months ago after 8 years of raping the country and destroying the constitution. Not to mention lying and killing thousands of our soldiers based on his lie. He was the first to out right implemented corporate socialism.

Time will tell how Obama looks compared to Shrub. So far ... "El Shrubbo" wins the prize ... hands down.

Not that I give a rat's a$$, but I have yet to see $13. Also, Obama is doing exactly what Bush was doing just at a MUCH greater speed and magnitude. That is why it took Bush 8 years, but Obama only 8 months. So far. Imagine what this time next year is going to look like. For example, the unemployment rate in my county July of 2008 was 4.8. July of 2009, one freaking year later, 9.8. That's like a damn third world country. That's just one tiny microscopic example. So if you didn't like Bush, if you have even a half a brain cell, you sure as hell don't like Obama.

Surplus? The country has been in debt for decades. The dirty liberal dems have controlled congress since 06', spending like drunken sailors. Memory hole?

Have you read the news about bamma's spending orgy. He's increased the debt 4X as much as when Bush was president in just the last 7 months. But I guess it's still Bush's fault huh?

Iraq war is won. Where are the dirty liberals calling for a pullout under bamma? Oh I know, it was bad under Bush but now it's ok under bamma. By the way, Afgan'stn is going to shit...under bamma. Air raiding villages and killing of civilians.

Everytime that I think TB2K has their shit together, you all degrade into partisan politics...

WTF is wrong with you people?

You deride "big brother", the creeping police state, globalism, and corporate evils. Yet, you cannot fathom the fact that Bush ( republicans ) and Obama ( democrats ) are manifistations of the same corporatocracy?

Un-flipping-believable...

Did you fall down and break your math weenie?

Yes, Bush did what you and others say but it took eight years before people hated him...Obama has donevit in six months. Big diffrence in the numbers alone.

Huh? If you know anything about me you know I don't support Obama. Sorry if I see it a little different than you. By the way ... I and many others couldn't stand Bush from the beginning of his term. Some of us can sniff out the garbage a little better than others. It didn't take me 8 years to figure him out. It's ok if your a bit slow.

In 8 years Bush had a $400 billion dollar deficit in 8 months Obama has a $1.6 trillion dollar deficit and $10 trillion dollar national debt. Obama has insulted every one of our allies and done more to damage America than any president in our 233 year history. Obama has given $20 million to Hamas to bring Palestinians into the US these are the same people that danced in the streets on 9/11.If he doesn't resign than he should be impeached.

OBAMA is clearly in over his head. He doesn't have the intelligence, experience, moral character or knowledge to pull off his duties acceptably, HE KNOWS IT and so do all the "advisors" drawn to and buzzing around him snapping up power and control wherever he demonstrates ineptitude.


RIGHT NOW, and increasingly, for the rest of his time in office, WE DO NOT KNOW WHO IS REALLY RUNNING THIS GOVERNMENT, because more than any other recent president he demonstrates an acute ineptitude for the office. He is acting increasingly like a black hand puppet, lip syncing a script whispered in his ear. Look closely, there is nothing there, he is all image and no substance.

This is OT, but what aint' said reminded me of a dream I had during the campaign. You guys remember when the nicer department stores had a counter just for returns? That's where I was, returning something and Obama was the employee behind the counter. I looked to the right and a very large black gentleman in dress slacks and a white shirt with sleeves rolled back, stepped out from behind a wall. He had a clipboard in his hands and was watching Obama intently, taking notes, scowling a little and I thought , "So that's who he works for".

End thread drift. Carry on.

haha, pretty good responses.

but of course, we all know that the real reason that communism didn't work in Russia was because they had to waste money fighting America.
stand back and watch Obama make communism Work!

actually, i think what we are witnessing is something to do with Kruchev's (paraphrased) prediction:

the West will sell us the rope to hang them with...

Obama is the dope-on-a-rope
