List of Obama Failures; Failings of our Nations most Socialist President to date
LIST OF OBAMA'S FAILURES
This article includes a list of President Barack Obama Failures, with older OR less noteworthy failures falling toward the bottom as this list grows.
Considering his socialist incompetence & narcissistic world views, it is not a complete list and will be less complete with likely continued failures. However I will attempt to update this as much as time allows (this will also include any necessary corrections should he change coarse). Of course some of his "failures" are a matter of perspective; however with minimal business experience, history knowledge, understanding of Judeo-Christian values, and simple honesty; it is difficult to deny the failings listed here.

- Obama Lies about Sequester;
"Remember when Obama supported the sequester cuts?
Busted for lying for the umpteenth time. Youtube is killing the Deficit President. Even Democrat Bob Woodward felt the need to call out Obama for his blatant lies about not only having supported the automatic spending cuts, but actually having introduced the idea himself.
As well, President Obama's minions have made veiled threats against Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Bob Woodward for exposing Obama's lies
Finally directives have come down from the administration to agencies such as the National Park Service to make Sequester cuts as noticeable and painful to the public as possible.
The bottom line is once again; "You Lie Mr. Obama"

- Obama Lies about ObamaCare not being a Tax;
Obama INSISTED to George Stephanopoulos during an interview that that his health care plan WAS NOT A TAX! YET his lawyers argued to the Supreme Court that his health care plan was not a mandate, and rather a tax. One more proof of this man's lack of character.
- Illegal shake down health care companies for donations to fund implementation of Obamacare;
Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius has been shaking down the health care companies for donations to fund implementation of Obamacare.
When Congress refused to appropriate more money to set up the health insurance exchanges, Secretary Sebelius began asking these companies to contribute to Enroll America, a nonprofit organization created to promote Obamacare.
As Senator Lamar Alexander said, “Such private fundraising circumvents the constitutional requirement that only Congress may appropriate funds. If the secretary or others in her department are closely coordinating the activities of Enroll America...then those actions may be in violation of the Anti-Deficiency Act.”
Senator Alexander points out the Secretary’s activities are functionally no different from those which led to the Iran-Contra scandal, in which the executive branch attempted to continue supporting a program Congress had not authorized using private donations. Fourteen officials were indicted in Iran-Contra.
- Obama Courts Arab Spring/Muslim Brotherhood; which (as predicted) was nothing more than a Terrorist front;
As most persons with an ounce of discernment already knew; the Arab Spring, AKA the Muslim Brotherhood is noting more than a Muslim Extremist group in a nice package; YET our horrible apology tour President Obama courted them!!!
Starting on Sept. 11 2012, this group proved Obama wrong in attacking our Consulates/Embassies in Libya, Egypt, Yemen & more. The results was ambassador Christopher Stevens among others being killed. As of 0/13/12, the Muslim Brotherhood Egyptian President is nowhere to be found as per an apology or more.
There is evidence that these attacks were planned in advance, yet these hateful persons blamed a questionable Anti-Muslim film on their attacks.
This resulted in many apologies from the Obama administration including Hillary Clinton.
Sorry Obama, you do NOT apologize for free speech regardless of what you think of this video. Sadly the dishonest news media even had the audacity to attempt to smear Mitt Romney as a private US citizen for pointing out this extreme flaw of Obama's (remember Obama's apology tour?).
As of 11/22/12, " Egypt President Morsi grants himself far-reaching powers", in other words he has basically made himself an Islamo-Fascist for LIFE!!
GOOD CALL President Obama!!! More proof he (Obama) is either totally incompetent when it comes to foreign policy or this is the kind of evil he desires in control in the Middle East; there is no other conclusion that can be drawn!!
Egypt President Morsi grants himself far-reaching powers
The Obama administrations attempt to first lie about the terrorist attack at Benghazi Libya, then finally admitting this was indeed a terrorist attack.
President Obama and his adminstration deliberately excluded counter terrorism officials from consultations at the White House in the wake of the attack.
Why? They did not want to have to admit that Al Qaeda, touted as dead and buried, had hit America again on the 11th anniversary of the original 9-11 attacks. Obama was counting on running as the man who killed the terrorists. Now he has to run as the failur who allowed terrorists to kill his Ambassador to Libya.
The main stream news media has aided the Obama administration cover-up by attempting to make Romney's CORRECT statement about a separate demonstration in Egypt appear to be a gaffe.
THE BOTTOM LINE is this cover-up on the scale of Watergate (President Nixon, 1972) is reason alone Obama should be thrown out of office, IF NOT IMPEACHED, considering a man was murdered, while Obama, Rice and others in his administration attempted to cover it up!!!
Sadly the mainstream media is totoally silent on this cover-up!!!

- Obama "Spikes the Ball" on the anniversary of the killing of Osama Bin Laden;
Not only does not follow up on his own promises not to politicize his giving the order to kill Bin Laden, he makes false charges about Mitt Romney in political Ads about his views which a speech in 2007 readily disprove (although media outlets are doing their best to spin this as a half truth in Obamas favor).
Mitt Romney, From a debate on MSNBC, 2007:
"Thank you. Of course we get Osama bin Laden and track him wherever he has to go, and make sure he pays for the outrage he exacted upon America."
"The Obama team exposed sensitive TTPs–aka Tactics, Techniques and Procedures.
The truth behind the Bin Laden hit is not favorable to Obama. As I have reported repeatedly–he was forced into this decision and, once he gave the greenlight, did everything to distance himself from it until it was clear that the outcome was a success. That ain’t leadership. That is jock sniffing at its worst"

- ‘You Didn’t Build That’;
Obama's pro big-government, anti-small business speech has our Silver-Tongued President attempting to clarify the ‘You Didn’t Build That’ speech.
His blog buddies are attempting to blame Fox News and others for taking this out of context, however a full reading of this speech is EXTREMELY OFFENSIVE as a small business owner. Here is one such blog defense:
One line form the speech certainly was not true for any of my small business success:
"There was a great teacher somewhere in your life"
Sorry Mr. Obama, it was a teacher that destroyed my life with her using me as an example of what a failure looks like (this haunted me through all my school years as I was teased mercilessly about this. See; My Bio). This is NOT to label all teachers, but it certainly was not a teacher that helped me with any success whatsoever!
You Didn’t Build That; YouTube
- Obama Delays Keystone Pipeline;
The Obama Administration delayed until after the 2012 elections the construction of the $7 billion Keystone XL pipeline that would bring in more than 700,000 barrels of oil per day from Alberta, Canada, to the Texas Gulf coast. The result is delay of access to easy imports from Canada, the creation of thousands of jobs (even if short term), the generation of revenue for the states where the pipeline passes, less dependence upon foreign oil from less than friendly nations in the Middle East and Venezuela (these last two reasons should be a "no brainer" for anyone other than Obama, Harry Reid, or Nancy Pelosi (even the unions support this pipeline!!)
See: Obama Delays Keystone Pipeline: Delays Jobs and Energy, Too
- Obama Sends Weapons Contract to Foreign Corp. with Ties to Iran & Soros;
The Obama Administration is blocking Wichita Kansas based Hawker Beechcraft from bidding on a Weapons Contract and instead is sending the contract for the previous Beechcraft AT-6 to Brazil-based Embraer’s Super Tucano military aircraft. Embraer is a company with Ties to Iran & George Soros.
See: Obama Administration Sends Weapons Contract to Foreign Company with Ties to Iran
Hawker requests GAO review of Air Force deal
- Obama’s total refusal to take ANY responsibility for his actions
His lies about the budget and constant blaming of Bush rather than taking any responsibility at all for his hand in the budget deficit and terrible economy:
For Fiscal Year 2009, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid bypassed George Bush entirely, passing continuing resolutions to keep government running until Barack Obama could take office. At that time, they passed a massive omnibus spending bill to complete the FY 2009 budgets. And where was Barack Obama during this time? He was a member of that very Congress that passed all of these massive spending bills, and he signed the omnibus bill as President to complete FY 2009.
If the Obama & the Democrats inherited any deficit, it was the Fiscal Year 2007 deficit, the last of the Republican budgets. That deficit was the lowest in five years, and the fourth straight decline in deficit spending. After that, Democrats in Congress took control of spending, and that includes Barack Obama, who voted for the budgets. If Obama inherited anything, he inherited it from himself. See these telling statistics:
- Debt Ceiling fiasco of 2011;
While the liberal media has done a good job of pinning this on Republicans and the Tea Party in particular, the blame lies squarely at his feet as he refused any real plan that would cap the debt ceiling as per Moody's, Standard & Poors, etc.
Any honest research will show that the August 2011 down grade and stock market crash could have been avoided if the Obama and his dishonest colleagues such as Harry Reid had accepted "Cut Cap, & Balance"
See: The Debt Ceiling Lies/Crisis
- Obama and Attorney General Holder suing the State of Arizona over bill that only enforces US Federal Law (US code #1304; c, d, & f).
See: Obama and Holder taking on Arizona's SB1070
There are two House investigations into a scandal involving a $535 million federal loan failed solar company Solyndra.
As well on September 30, the Energy Department rushes through an additional $4.7 billion in "green energy loans" to four other companies on the very day the funding expires under the 2009 stimulus act; this only three weeks after federal agents raided the closed offices of Solyndra
- Bankrupt Federal Investments (Political Pay-Offs;
Related to the above, President Obama has invested TAXPAYER money in several crony energy companies that failed.
Besides the before mentioned Solyndra, he has also invested taxpayer money in other now bankrupt companies such as: Beacon Power, Abound Solar, Eastern Energy, Amonix Solar, & Ener 1.
Compare this with Romney's success!!

- Inappropriate remarks about Israel Prime Minister (further proof of his disdain for Israel):
"You're fed up with him, but I have to deal with him even more often than you" This was in reply to an equally rude comment by French President Sarkozy.
See: Obama And Sarkozy Caught Bashing Netanyahu On Hot Mic
- Obama Sells USA out to the Russians via Hot MIC:
Obama: “On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved, but it’s important for him to give me space,”
“This is my last election, After my election, I have more flexibility.”
See: Hot mic: Obama begs Russians for ‘space’ on missile defense talks
- Obvious Appointment of Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court to push forward his Health Care Agenda:
This is clearly NOT what the supreme court is for, yet in typical banana Republic fashion, Obama is using the supreme court to pass his socialist agenda. Elena Kagan, who by any objective legal analysis should have recused herself from the Supreme Court case hearing over what is dubbed "ObamaCare". She has recused herself from many other cases in which she was far less involved, but she has adamantly refused to recuse herself now.
Even a liberal blog at least agrees that "as a matter of both principle and law Kagan should not hear the case.", See:
A Liberal’s Lament on Kagan and Health Care
- Fast and Furious” gun running scandal;
Unwavering support of Attorney General Eric Holder and his “Fast and Furious” gun tracking plan (including delayed terrorist news to cover this up). Two of the guns linked to "Fast and Furious" were found at the scene of the murder of a border patrol agent.
His contention that he knew nothing about secret tactics to allow illegal arms sales on the Southwest border does not "wash"; as the Attorney General the "buck" stops with him.
See: CNN; Time for Attorney General Holder to resign over Fast and Furious gun scandal?
- Indirect Support of the Occupy Movement
Barack Obama's political roots are connected to the creators of Occupy Wall Street. The media tries its best to portray the crime wave known as the “Occupy Movement” as a grass roots political movement but we know two things in spite of the media cover up: The Occupy bunch is not a grassroots movement, it’s a financed and controlled product of the community organizer in chief himself.
See: Occupy Movement

- Obama Refuses to Unseal his Records; and they want 12 years of Romney's tax returns?;
Please Click the picture to enlarge
- Multiple czars with no accountability;
Obama continues to employ "czars" and channel his socialist agenda via federal agencies, meanwhile sidestepping Congress and subverting the checks and balances written into our Constitution.
For example, on November 20th 2011, the Federal Communications Commission will get a stranglehold on the Internet through a cloaked initiative called "Net Neutrality."
This is a typical Obama socialist takeover!
- Obama IS primarily responsible for High Fuel Prices as of April 2012;
Despite media lies & excuses from the likes of George Stephanopoulos, the buck stops with Barack Obama.
While it is easy to blame speculators; the facts are even though the opening of the Keytone Pipeline would not have real benefits for years, when President George W Bush opened up more areas for domestic drilling, the price of oil immediately dropped.
As well Obamas moratorium on drilling in the gulf, ANWAR, speculators who worry about his mishandling of Iran (Commodity futures), and many other areas along refinery regulations have a direct impact on fuel prices.
While fuel prices are now falling as of June 2012, this is primarily due to the poor economy & economic outlook of which simply "supply and demand" has reduced costs.
As usual, Obama can NEVER take responsibility for anything, see: Obama To Blame Others For High Gas Prices
*Gas Prices: Inauguration Day $1.85. April 2012 $4.00~$5.00 (something to think about). Source: Consumer News; Average gas prices--January 19, 2009
- Obama stacked the National Labor Relations Board with Union Puppets who, for the first time in the history of the United States, refused to allow Boeing to open a plant in South Carolina (a "Right to Work State") because the plant would use non-union labor.
Despite the fact workers at the South Carolina plant in question voted resoundingly (199-68) to decertify their union two years ago.
See this article where Nancy Pelosi backs this move:
South Carolina Boeing Plant Should Unionize or Shut Down
- Use of the DOJ to Attack Sheriff Joe Arpaio;
The Department of Justice (DOJ) has been used to attack Arpaio’s office and has accused Arpaio of a policy to systematically violate the civil rights of Hispanic without any true evidence. The Truth is Sheriff Arpaio has simply been doing the Feds job of enforcing Federal laws.
See: Petition Says DOJ Investigation Nothing But Political Attack
- Refusing to prosecute the radical hate group; the Black Panthers for violations of others voting rights as well as hate crimes and inciting violence.
As well as of March 2012, putting out "Hits" on citizens and therefore disrespect for the rule of law that we are all "Innocent until Proven Guilty" in a court of law (referring to George Zimmerman)
See this very good web post for further information:
New Black Panther Obama DOJ refused to prosecute: “I hate white people – all of them!”
- Allowing radical racist communist in his administration - Van Jones; Special Advisor for Green Jobs in the Obama administration (Former now).
This guy is so far out there that he signed his name to 911Truth.org which is a group that does not believe the accepted, proven, and established accounts of 9/11/01, this is a kin to denying the Holocaust, claiming the Earth is flat (there are those that still believe this), believe the Moon landings were fake, etc, etc.
This is also insulting to the families of the victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks and bluntly almost as evil as the attacks themselves!
Reference (one of many); Wikipedia; Van Jones
- Socialist in his administration;
Here are just a few:
Carol Browner (Energy Czar/Director), Rosa Brooks (Senior advisor to the Under Secretary of Defense for Policy, Michele Flournoy), Ron Bloom (Manufacturing Czar).

- General Motors Bail Out & Take Over;
Sadly Obama is calling this a "Victory", but it is NOT!
On 5-29-09, with General Motors nearing bankruptcy, the GM stock price hit a 71-year low of 75 cents per share. That put the market capitalization of General Motors at less than a half-billion dollars.
President Obama came to the rescue with a $60 billion bailout. As of today, despite the infusion of $60 billion into GM, the company's market capitalization is just $38 billion and Obama is claiming victory! That would be the same as buying a "fixer-upper" house for $5,000, pumping $600,000 into the house and selling the house for $380,000 -- while claiming the whole episode a financial success!!
See: Auto bail Out
The Federal Government had NO Legal right to pass over paying off "high priority" Bond holders and instead hand over much of the stock to the Unions,
See GM bondholders see raw deal in latest exchange offer
Finally; The firing the head of General Motors; this is NOT the job of the President to fire corporate heads no matter how bad they might be.
- Shutting down of the oil industry in the Gulf of Mexico, along with his mishandling of the BP Oil Spill including turning down real help from the Dutch for Oil Spill Help; Obama says “Thanks, but no thanks”
See: Dutch Offered Oil Spill Help
Also with an economy that needs low oil prices for complete recovery, Obama continues to lock up viable oil reserves in the US.
Sadly energy policy has been a failure of many presidents, including Bush. We need a leader to stand up to the communist environmental movement before it is too late (all the while China drills for oil just outside our waters and Canada does not have any of the issues with drilling that we have in Alaska)
- Obamas EXTREME ARROGANCE toward those who do not fit his world view/profile.
This includes his view that other than himself driving around in limos and flying in Air Force one, no one else is entitled to any luxuries in life and high fuel prices are just another way of separating the "serfs" from persons of his stature in his racist psychopathic narcissist world view.
See this excellent video clip, this displays his extreme arrogance and racism:
Obama Humiliated After Attempt To Shame SUV Driver
Sadly, this picture below shows the height of his extreme hypocrisy; this picture is from 2008 (during the presidential campaign). I guess it is OK for him and his family to own an SUV, but not for others; Good job "Marie Antoinette Obama"
- Obama’s ties via Eboo Patel to the radical Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, the controversial Muslim leader behind the plan to build the Islamic center and mosque two blocks from Ground Zero. Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf wrote the afterward to Patel’s 2006 book entitled, “Building the Interfaith Youth Movement: Beyond Dialogue to Action.”
Eboo Patel the is religious adviser to President Obama. Obama’s adviser says, “America is the ideal place for a renewal of Islam”.
*Barack Obama’s ‘Religious’ Advisor, Eboo Patel, is closely linked to the radical imam seeking to build the Ground Zero mosque
*Obama religion adviser closely tied to ‘Ground Zero’ imam. Boasted of America as ‘ideal place for renewal of Islam’
- Stimulus bill - not a jobs bill but a democratic payback bill
- Extreme political correctness and inability to call Islamic Extremists and the tenants of Islam which they follow for what it is;
Often an extreme religion of hate and intolerance: No Mosque at Ground Zero
- Tax cheats in his administration; Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner
- No Olympics for Chicago - turned out to be a big ego trip instead
- Making race relations worse - (stupidly comment- professor gates)
- Fly over photo op in New York - scared New Yorkers
- Selling out other nations by removing missile defense
- Lack of transparency
- Lying about details of his healthcare reform bill - YOU LIE!!!
- Attempt to take over census
- Undecided about giving military what they need to win
- Association with acorn
- Worldwide apology tour (this borders on treason IMHO)
- Willing to bend over to our enemies while giving our allies the shaft
- Lack of support for Israel.
While I, nor others advocate blanket support for everything Israel does, it does not take a genius to figure out the Israel is the strongest democracy in the region and our best ally in the region as well.
One could also cite Genesis 12:2-3 for supporting Israel, although their admittedly is controversial as to the correct interpretation of these verses, I personally think it is clear from reading the Bible in context (including the literal Hebrew of these verses) that the Nation of Israel is being spoken of via Abraham's descendants through Jacob, NOT Ishmael (see: "I will make you into a great nation")
- Took too long to speak out against violence against voters in Iran
- Getting the NEA to produce propaganda art for his agenda
- Firing inspector general for investigating his friends at americorp
- Shutting down voucher program in DC for poor school kids
- Lied about putting bills online for 5 days
- Allowing unions large share in businesses taken over by government
- Intimidating businessmen (I'm only thing standing between you and the pitch forks)
- Allowing his administration to threaten shareholders during bankruptcy of car dealers
- Extreme Anti small business & anti-family views/policies; remember Joe the Plumber? As well as a small businessman that struggles for every dollar, often working 80 hours per week I have already seen my taxes increase. As well Obama has lowered the child tax credit from $1000 to $500; how family friendly is that?
- Raised the deficit 3 times the amount it was in 2008 in one year
- Bailout of Fannie and Freddie
- Will not be able to repay tarp money to taxpayers as promised
- Continued blaming of George W Bush for the Economy, months and years into his presidency.
The facts are after 9/11 the economy was doing fine, it only started downhill after the Dems took over the Congress in 2006 pushing for much more out of control spending. Even then the main culprit occurred in the 1990s when HUD loosened mortgage restrictions in the mid-1990s. As well banking de-regulation in 2004 (admittedly under George W Bush) allowed financial institutions to make more risky investments/loans.
The bottom line is these financial institutions should not have been bailed out at taxpayer expense with NO future return payment, and all Obama did is Triple Down on George W Bush' mistakes here, not turn course; So Obama now owns this economy!
- Class warfare uproar over AIG bonuses but silent about bonuses for his pals at for Fanny & Freddie
- Spending more than any president in history
- And of coarse the failure of the American Electorate to actually vote for such a fool.
This quote says a lot:
"America is on the verge of destruction. There is no insanity greater than electing a pathological narcissist as president"
From: PSYCHOLOGICAL ASSESSMENT OF OBAMA
Some people have the vocabulary to sum up things in a way you can understand them. This quote came from the Czech Republic . Someone over there has it figured out. We have a lot of work to do:
"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president."
And this quote:
"Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.." -- Winston Churchill
HOWEVER, it is the belief of Milton Erickson, M.D. that Obama has used techniques that simply deceive otherwise rational persons (whether intentional or not, I will not be the judge of this since neither I nor others can not for certain): See this informative well written pdf article about hypnosis techniques written by Dr. Milton Erickson, M.D. :
An Examination of Obama’s Use of Hidden Hypnosis Techniques in His Speeches
Hopefully the “Light Bulb” will go off in the head of at least 50% of Americans before it is too late for this once great nation
|First since I promised to add to this article as I continue to updated, let me add a couple positives:
* President Obama used intelligence gleaned from interrogations he disagreed with to make the right decision to go after and kill Osama Bin Laden. He could have ignored this (as many of his past remarks/actions suggest he could have); however our President did the "right Thing";
*Turning over his actual Birth Certificate While this controversy may not go away and while these documents may well be forged; either way this is a minor issue IMHO and detracts from serious debate of why in most cases this man is the worst president in our Nation's history.
These two positives still do not in any way make up for this list of failures & extreme leftist views & hatred of anyone who has achieved anything in life via hard work!
