Obama now lecturing America on food waste and eating meat, gets fact-checked by his former chef.

 

 

Barack Obama Jets to Milan to Deliver Climate Change Speech, says there that Climate Change ‘Created by Man’ and ‘Can Be Solved.

 

 

Crucial for Americans to Resist ‘Hate,’ Obama Says in Rare Address.

 

:lol: His last "rare address' was two weeks ago...........................

To be honest, that hasn't happened since Reagan left office.

I think 41 and 43 were/are decent men. Didn't agree with all of their policies though.

Yup, so is Obama, but those 3 go down as time-wasters in office....


Those that weren't time-wasters in office...

 

FDR, LBJ, Nixon, Reagan.

 

Many before FDR though.

That's not entirely wrong...but he shouldn't have made the "red line" comment in the first place, then.  Deciding that maybe your earlier tough talk was over-the-top might be brave, but damaging the international credibility of the United States so seriously was not a "politically courageous" move.

It would be a lot easier for the left to make the case that Trump is the biggest dumbass around if Obama would just STFU for a while.

This is true of course, but the red-line stance makes way more sense when you factor in 44 was given deliberately falsified intelligence about the Ghouta attack in '12. He was told the attack came from Assad's forces, was preparing to strike - and then was told, by his own IC, that the attacks actually came from US backed rebel groups. Knowing this, he did not order a strike because he feared the fallout should that intelligence come to light. After all, by then the media had already tried and convicted Assad for that attack and there was no going back... unless 44 were to admit the US and its allies were funding rebels who are using chemical attacks to stage false flags.  

 

But you can't say that, because it then opens up a whole can of worms that would take true courage to sift through. 

 

So instead he just hoped it would all go away...

TO DO THAT, DONT YOU HAVE TO GO AWAY FIRST?

Obama Attempts Government In Exile.

The unprecedented extent to which the Democrats have tried to delegitimize Trumps presidency, starting the day after the election, has done tremendous damage. But most of the tongue-clucking from pundits is aimed at Trump, for some reason.

I agree, although I think if you look deeper 43 and 44 could go be remembered far worse than just being time wasters. 43 has done an amazing job of manipulating the Trump situation to make people think he was a great guy.

The Trump situation could make Jack the Ripper seem like a great guy.

Hard to imagine 43 will rise in historical value, good thing he won twice though. 44, not sure. You are too hooked on recent events to label them as productive...

By all reports 43 was a great guy and loved by staff.

Even the staff who thought he was an idiot (of which there were more than a few) thought he was a very nice guy.

While Obama left town for all holidays, necessitating staff to go with him and away from their families on those holidays, Bush didn't travel for the holidays for the specific reason of allowing his staff to be at home with their families. When the Iraqi war started Bush gave up golf, feeling that it just wasn't right to be seen on the golf course while he commanded troops attempting to just stay alive trying to avoid IED's in 110 degrees heat.  Obama, on the other hand gave a eulogy for fallen troops while tying up his golf cleats (hyperbole, but only barely). One can tell much about people just by the way they treat subordinates.  Barry and Michelle weren't much liked. George and Laura were loved, while Hillary was despised.

The POTUS with the largest portion of staff and cabinet that thought he was an idiot is on the $5 bill.
