"Obama’s four biggest failures"

I think it's OK to post this here. I'm just posting this because the Murdoch perspective was interesting. I believe MarketWatch is owned by Murdoch?

Please don't think this is an Obama bashing, I'm just posting this as it's interesting to see what is being said.

See >>> http://www.marketwatch.com/story/obamas-four-biggest-failures-2012-06-25

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) – Conservatives like to complain that Barack Obama is the most liberal president we’ve ever had, a closet Marxist who’s determined to turn America into a socialist hell.

Actual liberals, socialists and closet Marxists have a different view: Obama is pragmatic moderate who resembles Dwight Eisenhower more than he does Che Guevara.

Liberals were early and enthusiastic supporters of Obama in 2008. They liked his anti-war stance, and they were moved by the vision of a less-partisan and more enlightened future they thought they heard in his rhetoric.

Liberals loved the Obama of 2008; the one of 2012, not so much.

Four years later, liberals are disappointed in Obama, although they will hold their noses to vote for him, contribute money to him and volunteer to campaign for him. But they won’t like it.

Lest you think I’m exaggerating, consider this: MoveOn.org, a leading liberal grassroots organization, officially backed candidate Obama on Feb. 1, 2008, an early endorsement that helped him defeat Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination.

But this year, MoveOn didn’t get around to endorsing Obama until just last week, despite the fact that there is no liberal alternative. One top leader of MoveOn said that members had moved on to other candidates who excited them more, such as Elizabeth Warren in Massachusetts.

Liberals will vote for Obama over Mitt Romney, but they aren’t happy with him. And here are the four biggest reasons why they aren’t:

1. People make Liberals to be this wide-eyed person

duped by Obama's centrist position. Sorry I was not that stupid. I knew Obama was right of me in his positions. I voted for him KNOWING this. I didn't expect Obama to be a Liberal. Why should we be disappointed? Didn't people pay attention to what he said, looked at his voting record?


I don't buy it. I don't buy the Liberals are upset with Obama because he isn't liberal enough. Give me a fuking break. It's crap. Seriously.

Yeah 0bama is practically a conservative.  :whatever:

17. That's pretty hard on the President...

...and I agree with some of it. It's difficult for me to call President Obama a "liberal"...

That's because you are to the left of Stalin.

You know how it is at DU they don't want to even see anything they disagree with. That's why they want faux snooze, and Rush Limbaugh destroyed.

Yes you were, and yes you are.

It's a shame when we are more honest about who and what the left is than they are.

That is a normality for liberals. They hate hearing apposing opinions. They are so afraid that the other view might make them doubt their God, that they completely block it out. Who cares about facts, they don't want any of it.

That was the first thing that came to my mind; "please don't ban me for posting this BUT..."

The MarketWatch author says liberals are upset because Obama is not a dictator, and did not give them everything they wanted.  Care to take a look at the 218 Executive Orders Obama has issued (as of 6/22/12, so the # is higher now) :  http://1461days.blogspot.com/2009/01/current-list-of-president-obamas.html
And that does not count the edicts he has ordered (like not deporting illegals)

Thanks jukin, I've been following that trail, too, but it is kind of hard to follow/track the edicts, i.e. DOMA, deporting illegals, etc., when they are simply edicts.  I like being " sleuthy", so if you get on a hot trail, let me know.

Will do. I'm sure that there are very subtle nuances in the realm of diktats depending mostly on if one has an R or a D.

I never expected miracles. I knew where he stood and I understand the congress he has had to work with, including some of the Democrats.

Perhaps we need to start electing kings or dictators who can do whatever they wish.

 

I think this person is serious.

“The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of ‘liberalism’, they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.” - Norman Thomas, U.S. Socialist Party presidential candidate 1940, 1944 and 1948

"America is like a healthy body and its resistance is threefold: its patriotism, its morality, and its spiritual life. If we can undermine these three areas, America will collapse from within."  Stalin
