"America's failure has been to believe success was there to stay, when it is a stage that can only be secured by a persevering effort." Eliana Benador

A year after President Obama’s fatidic 2009 Cairo Speech, in 2010, news spread that President Obama had given instructions to his newly appointed NASA chief, Charles Bolden, so that he make Muslims “feel good about themselves.’
Bolden: I am here in the region – its sort of the first anniversary of President Barack Obama’s visit to Cairo – and his speech there when he gave what has now become known as Obama’s “Cairo Initiative” where he announced that he wanted this to become a new beginning of the relationship between the United States and the Muslim world. When I became the NASA Administrator – before I became the NASA Administrator – he charged me with three things: One was that he wanted me to re-inspire children to want to get into science and math, that he wanted me to expand our international relationships, and third, and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with predominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science, math, and engineering.
Time has passed by and the first-man’s agenda remains unchangeable: This week, American diplomats were readying for a new round of nuclear negotiations with Iran, and had an important item on their agenda: How could they make Iranians feel like the winners...?
Indeed, once again, President Obama publicly acknowledged the importance of safeguarding Iranian self-respect in the deal-making, saying any accord must provide a “dignified path for Iran to forge a new beginning with the wider world.”
As such, US diplomats are supposed to convey that such a deal will only work if ordinary Iranians believe it preserves the country’s dignity as it manacles their treasured nuclear programme. They have been trying to shape a deal that will look like a victory for both sides.
A few weeks ago, during a state visit by President Francois Hollande, President Obama was overheard telling his guest "That's the good thing as a President, I can do whatever I want."
General reaction to Obama’s statement was a definite uproar. Most pundits and wannabes, immediately rushed with headlines asserting what seemed obvious: “No, Mr. President, you cannot do what you want.”
But, is that so? Can President Obama “not” do whatever he wants? Let us take a look at some facts:
Just recently, shocking news of an Islamic terror enclave unveiled that, in the heart of Texas, there are Islamic warfare training camps. Has there been any uproar?
The organization Muslims of America says it has a network of 22 “villages” around the U.S., with Islamberg as its main headquarters in New York. The MOA footage showing female members receiving paramilitary training at Islamberg. It was featured on the Kelly File on FOX News Channel in October. A second MOA tape shows its spokesman declaring the U.S. to be a Muslim-majority country.
Thus, the Obama bulldozer continues its path, unstoppable, unleashing their dogs.
NSA is but one of the Obama weapons directed against the people. The list goes from “eliminating mention of Islam as the source of Muslim terrorism” from official information and teaching manuals at the FBI, CIA and others, to the recent lift of ban on immigrants with links to terrorism. Just as they also made sure to give special treatment to “Major” Nidal Malik Hasan, the terrorist embedded within Fort Hood and who massacred over 13 of his innocent, unarmed colleagues, and seriously wounded many more.
Obama’s masterpiece, Obamacare, turned to be a -now silenced- catastrophe as it resulted on many millions who are now with no health care and/or paying manifold more than what they were paying under the previous regime.
Furthermore, Obama and his team have warned insurance companies to “keep quiet” about the fact that millions of Americans are being told that they cannot keep their existing policies, contradicting Barack Obama’s promise that, “If…you like your plan, you can keep your doctor, you can keep your plan.”
Also, the introduction of the Obama administration-endorsed Common Core school standards has been "completely botched" in many states — with a whopping 70 percent of educators believing its implementation is a disaster, as the leader of the nation's largest teachers' union has blasted.
By now, democrats at large are realizing that they chose the wrong guy. Recent polls demonstrate that 55% of Democrats regret voting for Obama's reelection while 100% of Hispanic voters regret as well.
Even comedian Bill Maher said to Piers Morgan: “The country is in a decline.” And he went off on Obamacare, arguing that “Obama should not have lied to the people.” Also, with astoundingly lucidity, Maher stated that “Liberals [are] Afraid to Criticize Islam & be Called Racists.”
So the question one has to wonder is: One after the other the do-well plans of this anti-American President are not working. Is it sheer coincidence? Or is it a well-calculated, masterful plan?
Meanwhile, beware what you speak on the phone or write on your emails, the President is keen in keeping them as sweet memories.
And, no phone-love-making anymore.
