The Red, White and Blue’s epitaph will read like a litany of failures perpetrated on both the American people and the world by this president:

These are not scandals, these are reason conservatives don't like him. Many of the are petty, many you can't reasonably place the blame on him, some stuff are just pulled out of the air.
Like a fewWarning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
-The stimulus plan wasn't a failure, many economist, and the CBO has said it.
-Much of the new debt is from the two wars the previous president started
-No one knows why the Pariticpation rtae hasn't bounced back, even many labor economist. But lets remeber it is so low because of the great recession which Obama had no had in.
-Denying American Exceptionalism? What does that even mean. Many other countries around the world do many things better than America. It would be wise if we as a nation look to other to see how we can better ourselves
-How is campaign for an Olympic bid a scandal? Many politicians across the world do this
-Obama has tried plenty of times to curb college cost, many dems have, the other side is unwilling to cut a deal. He can't just do it by himself....
-Which brgins us to "creating laws by himself", like? You mean executive orders, which he is well within his legal right to do
-The credit downgrade is the fault of the GOP. Don't try to pin that on Obama. It was them paying games with the fiscal cliff, and the budgets that caused that
-Since when is it a requirement for an American president to be in solidarity with Israel. He is not letting Isreal dictate his policy making, not foreign government should be allowed to do that
-The spying started under Bush. His administration were the architects to the patriot act. And the law has wide support on the right. Even when Obama wants to roll back there power the object
-How has he disregarded the Constitution? You're just throwing out red herrings with this "tyrannical rule" stuff
-He has never once disrespected cops. In every speech he gives he shows support for them, all he has said to cops is "consider how the other side feels"
-Which policy was suppose to magically stop housing foreclosures. How can someone even stop that. Plus once again, this traces back to the mess he got handed off.
I could go on and on with discrediting these "scandals". Or maybe we should start looking at Bush's resume, to see what a real failure of a president looks like
And blaming Obama for the uptick in racial tension is simply ridiculous.Edited by RustyShackleford - 12/6/15 at 5:34pm
