Is Obama Stupid or the weakest President Ever?

Another stunning about face today from the NYT:

Obama Open to a Mandate on Health Insurance

By ROBERT PEAR

Published: June 3, 2009

WASHINGTON – President Obama said Wednesday that he was receptive to Congressional proposals that would require Americans to have health insurance and oblige employers to share in the cost. But he said there should be exemptions for people who cannot afford insurance and for small businesses in general.

Obama: ‘Nobody’ Considers Health Care Mandate a Tax Increase

Anti-War Activists Disappointed With Obama’s Iraq Withdrawal Plan

President Obama’s plan will take three months longer than he promised on the campaign trail and will leave a residual force of between 35,000 and 50,000 troops, which many Democrats say is too many.

I could go on and on.   The ‘exchange’ is actually the McCain ‘plan’ which he argued against.  

Crazy, delusional, Stupid?

  1. It’s dizzying.  

  2. They should withdraw, and provide massive reparations.

    This bullshit that they think they can leave, provide nothing for the people they screwed up, but keep bombing via drones etc is just plain evil.

    than the people who think he’s playing eleven dimensional chess.

    You know?

  3. not even weak just a pol a corrupt corporate tool. One that is the master of the bamboozle. However I think his bamboozle will not work as it does not at all match what his agenda or policies or even loyalty is. We all have to live under what this administration is calling progress change of reform. It won’t be change you can believe in or even compromise with and it seems to be empowering the corporations at a increasing rate. The fierce urgency of now doesn’t seem to be going anywhere in fact it’s screaming down the road at an accelerated clip. An intolerable status quo that we’re asked to pony up for in a world that offers no jobs, no peace, no future, and no reality and calls this compromise or change, or good.

    include much of his staff.  

  4. IMHO, he listens to too many contradictory voices of “wisdom” and apparently isn’t able to make up his own mind decisively and with principle and conviction.  

  5. He let the “commanders on the ground” tell him what to do in the Middle East, instead of assuming the mantle of Commander-in-Chief.

    McCain’s idea was actually a good one. He took a good idea for bipartisanship’s sake. (McCain also had a good idea about the government buying out people’s mortgages and publicly administering the loans instead of giving money to the banks for them to not-loan. Wish Obama had borrowed that one and credited McCain.)

    The mandate is horseshit without a Medicare-like public option. With the public option, if it’s affordable, it makes some sense.

    lazy, disengaged, and thoughtless in decision-making! Recall Judd Gregg appointment?

    He looked good, has a dazzling smile, gives great speeches, that someone else writes.

    But he doesn’t know jack about what to do with the power he has.

    And he doesn’t seem to care.

    It seems like he’s all “beer talk” and does absolutely nothing for real.

    I mean, what has he done?  Other than piss off EVERYbody?

    What has he actually accomplished?  Nothing.

  6. links about Obama’s reverse speech?

    Yes we can=thank you Satan
