The entire world celebrated the history that was made when Barack Obama was first elected President. Since his election as President Obama has continued to make history, but in ways the world is not so inclined to celebrate. One such way is making it to Judicial Watch’s “Top Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians” list for his seventh straight year, and we all know he has destroyed previous records for running up the national debt. These days he is solidifying his place in history in another way, one which only Jimmy Carter will be pleased about, as the single most incompetent human being to ever hold the office of President of the United States (and possibly any other country).
Although his title cannot be disputed with a straight face, in the past few years it has been difficult to pin down exactly which of his many failures most qualified him for the top spot. Certainly his handling of the economy has negatively impacted the most lives in this country, but Obamacare, the crown jewel of his first term in office, is running a close second and has been a major contributing factor to our economic woes.
One failure that had the potential to negatively impact the life of the President and his own family is highlighted by the problems with the Secret Service which have recently come to light, as we learn that Obama’s choice to lead the world’s most elite security force told Supervisors in the organization “We need to be more like Disney World”. Apparently the President learned of this suggestion and applied it across his entire administration, because it has become a Mickey Mouse operation led by Dumbo and staffed by appointees who strongly resemble Goofy.
With so many failures to choose from, the only way to rate them in severity to rank them not by the number of people they have negatively impacted, but by the number of lives lost either directly or indirectly due to his policies.
Let’s begin by looking at gun control. Although his efforts to limit our freedoms protected by the Second Amendment have largely failed, those efforts have resulted in a number of deaths. In order to justify additional gun control laws, the case first has to be made that current laws are ineffective in reducing gun violence, so the Obama Justice Department under the leadership of Attorney General and Chief Race Baiter Eric Holder prosecuted 25 percent fewer gun violation cases in 2013 according to a report in the Washington Times. Although the lack of enforcement of federal gun laws probably resulted in deaths, the number would be hard to quantify. Another failure on this front would include the administration’s effort to falsely claim guns from the U.S. were responsible for drug cartel violence in Mexico. The infamous Fast & Furious scandal has demonstrably resulted in the deaths of at least one American, Border Agent Brian Terry, as well as hundreds of people in Mexico. A related failure, which is more accurately described as willful negligence rather than incompetence, is the failure of the administration to hold anyone accountable.
I cannot begin to count the number of people worldwide who have died as a result of President Obama’s foreign policy failures, but we can begin with the four Americans who died in Benghazi and continue counting from there. His meddling in Libya and Egypt led to widespread instability across the Middle East, and at the very least his policies have failed to prevent deaths in Syria. In Iraq the administration’s failure to secure a Status of Forces agreement with the Iraqi government set the stage for ISIS to flourish in the region. Despite the President’s half-hearted efforts to stop the advances of the dangerous terrorist organization that Obama mistakenly thought was the “JV team” because he couldn’t be bothered with his intelligence briefings, reports this morning suggest Baghdad is now in danger of falling into their hands.
As I write, we see the potential for many more deaths here in America. The President’s failure to secure the border, and in fact his eagerness to encourage illegal immigration, has allowed a large number of diseased illegals into the country which is most likely a contributing factor to an increased number of TB cases as well as the new “mystery virus” infecting children across the country. Additionally, there are reports confirming evidence terrorists have infiltrated the U.S. across the southern border. Perhaps more troubling is the administration’s failure to restrict air travel from African nations with widespread Ebola outbreaks, resulting in at least one confirmed case of the disease in Dallas and potentially another in Hawaii. The administration has assured us that they have the situation under control and that there is little to no chance the infection will spread because it requires close physical contact with an infected person. Of course, this is the same administration that assured us that we could keep our doctors, that there wasn’t a shred of corruption in the IRS, it didn’t make any difference that four Americans died in Benghazi and that they died because of a YouTube video, and that ISIS was the JV Team. Forgive me if I’m not particularly reassured by their assurances.
