    exactly what are obozo’s accomplishments since he took the oval office that benefitted the USA is the question. this POTUS will go down in history as the big time panderers of many interest groups – the illegal aliens, the welfare recipients he expanded to buy votes, reelected him on his second term is the effect this nation is experiencing, an upside-down america, like detroit aura is spreading to every parts of the USA. the socialist ideologues of obozo and his demonicrap bozos with the the lame stream medias to date still his backer and apologists, to blame and fault the wealthy business entrepreneurs of closing their businesses in america, and ran overseas to open shops, employing people abroad. the remaining businesses operating in the good ole USA are being accused by obozo, and his bozos of greediness for not agreeing to increase the minimum wage. what a whacko, clueless, still have not learned how to lead if leadership can be learned, cannot grasp he is the reason why america is in deep water economically/socially. this POTUS have categorized the populous as unintelligent with his continuous blames of the rich of the bad economy, and still with 31% people believing obozo’s lies is dangerous, and should scares the hell out of americans who love this nation too much, only to go down the deepest cliff with the demonicraps ideologues.

    Obama has nothing in his life that could be called an accomplishment. He is consumed by bitterness and hatred for America and it’s Christian foundation.It’s bad enough that at that time in our history, liberals were screaming for a liberal politically correct black man to be ushered into the White House to assuage their own guilt, but they picked an absolute fool of an individual.

    His academic background is as fraudulent as he is. Obama could not give a speech without a teleprompter and someone else writing it if his life depended on it. His arrogance and ego knows no bounds, he is pathetic in the way he blames every single problem of his own creation on others. He is unwilling to accept any responsibility for his failures. He is running out of excuses and will never accept the legacy that is already cemented in failure. The world laughs at him and at us.
