Paging Colonel Sanders!


Michael Goodwin:

Chickens come home to roost for Obama

It is impossible to dismiss as mere coincidence the Russian Bear’s invasion of Ukraine and the continuing mayhem of the Affordable Care Act. In their own ways, each reflects the full flowering of the policies of Barack Obama.

His chickens are coming home to roost, and what a mess they are making.

Obama’s sixth year in the White House is shaping up as his worst, and that’s saying something. He’s been in the Oval Office so long that it is obscene to blame his problems on George W. Bush, the weather or racism. Obama owns the world he made, or more accurately, the world he tried to remake.

Nothing important has worked as promised, and there is every reason to believe the worst is yet to come. The president’s casual remark the other day that he worries about “a nuclear weapon ­going off in Manhattan” inadvertently reflected the fear millions of Americans have about his leadership. Not necessarily about a bomb, but about where he is taking the country.


The view from his faculty lounge has no space for reality. Anything that doesn’t fit the grand plan is dismissed as illegitimate. So while global hot spots multiply and the world grows dangerously unstable, the president still plans to slash the military.

His trip abroad last week further secured his reputation for historic ineptitude. It wasn’t that the trip was a disaster — it never rose to that level. His presence and his promises simply made no difference.

He failed to move the European Union toward a firmer stance on Russia, created bizarre headlines by differing with the Vatican over what he and the pope discussed, and got not-so-veiled threats from the Saudis about Syria and Iran.

He could have stayed home and not done worse.

No president can win ’em all, but Obama’s foreign-policy record is unblemished by success. From east to west and north to south, America’s standing and influence have declined universally.

It is impossible for a US president to be irrelevant, but Obama is testing the proposition.


A Caesar at home and a Chamberlain abroad, Obama manages to simultaneously provoke fury and ridicule. He bullies critics here while shrinking from adversaries there.

He divides the country and unites the world against us, ­diminishing the nation in both ways. His reign of error can’t end soon enough, nor can it end well.

Obama struts around like a rooster, laying eggs everywhere he goes. The only thing he is good at managing is the media, and that’s only because they are his most ardent followers. If only someone had warned America that the clothes had no emperor!

Oh, wait. We did. Sarah Palin did too.

Now that I think about it there were quite a few people who were never fooled by Obama. We looked past the color of his skin to the content of his character and found him wanting. We listened to his rhetoric and heard just words. We reviewed his resume and were stunned by the lack of real accomplishment.

Naturally, we were denounced as racists.

We were wrong about one thing, though. Obama turned out to be even worse than we predicted.

We told you so

    I remember I was going to give Obama a year to see if this blank slate, empty suit, untested, unvetted (see: Sarah Palin), smiley, preacher-like speechifyer may actually pull off all the things he promised …. then he doubled down on the problems I had with Bush, there was no difference.

    3 months after his first inauguration I attended my first tea party rally. It wasn’t just angry Republicans, I met more Democrats (Puma wing) that day. Everyone was getting fed up, still are.

      There is a post back at TC somewhere in which I said that I hoped I was wrong about Obama because if I was right it was gonna be really bad for our country.

      I hate being right all the time.

    the Tea Party will be a deciding factor in elections for many years. When enough people get fed up with both parties and decide to take action with speeches, donations, and getting involved with elections it reminds people of just what this country is supposed to be.
    of the people, for the people, by the people.
    They scare the hell out of the politicians from both parties and that is a good thing

    backtrack is bin laden’s wet dream.
    the attack on the world trade buildings were supposed to ruin the American economy. that did not succeed but backtrack is carrying on the idea

    Is it irony or is it insult? Can anyone rationally explain to me why Cesar Chavez Day in CA, CO and TX is immediately followed by April Fools Day?
