What's the worst thing Obama has done?

January 18, 2017

Over the past eight years, whenever President Obama has announced some brilliant (in his mind) new policy initiative or shown spectacular lack of leadership at a critical time, I’ve had cause to think, “Wow. This is the worst thing he has ever done!” I’ve had this thought many times, because when it comes to bad moves, head-scratching inconsistencies and inappropriate silences, the President just keeps outdoing himself. And he’s not quite done.

Just hours before he leaves the White House, I have to wonder what else he’s going to slap the nation with as he walks out the door.

So, what do YOU consider to be the worst thing Obama has ever done? To get you thinking, here’s a list of suggestions, by no means inclusive, to consider for that distinction. Remember to take into account the many possible long-term effects...

1. His pardon of Chelsea Manning after she (then-he) leaked 700,000 classified documents to WikiLeaks, with incalculable consequences to our troops and intelligence-gathering capabilities.

2. His attempted dismantling of our health care system with the disastrous Obamacare. (I include the repeated lies he told to get the law through.)

3. His dangerous Iran policy, most notably the transfer of billions of dollars to Iran and the infamous nuclear “deal.” (Again, all the associated secrecy and lies.)

4. His role in the deterioration of race relations, when he’d been given a great opportunity to heal them.

5. His failure to respect and support our allies, most notably Israel.

6. The shame of our foreign policy in the Middle East that resulted in chaos, untold deaths and the rise of ISIS. (Of course, Hillary Clinton shares the blame for that tragedy.)

7. The approximately $20 trillion in national debt that we are left with now.

8. The threats to national security posed by essentially open borders, his enthusiastic importation of refugees and his continuing release of Gitmo prisoners.

9. His thorough politicization of the Justice Department, State Department and IRS.  Obama created a law enforcement bureaucracy that had no problem targeting conservative groups and running roughshod over religious freedom, even if it meant suing the Little Sisters Of The Poor.

10. The unbearable burden of regulation he apparently has enjoyed placing on business.

Again, wow. How to choose? Obama, so preoccupied with legacy building, has built a monument to his own failure that will endure for the ages. I’ve never been one to push “Manchurian candidate”-style conspiracy theories, but tell me, if even the most far-fetched of them had been true, might the consequences have been about the same?

So, tell me, which of the above “top ten” do you think is the worst thing Obama has ever done? I’d really like to know what you think. Just leave me a comment below. I read them!

Of course, he’s still got a few hours to go –- time to outdo himself once again.

    Also releasing four top level terrorists (his Muslim buddies) for one US Army deserter. Then going on live TV to look good so people will say how good and noble the President is. What an idiot ! Any REAL leader would tell ISIS if they hurt that soldier then we will castrate and let die all four of those four terrorists they want.
    They would think twice about hurting our soldier.
    Also Obama knew about Benghazi mess up before the election of second term. He waited and wanted to keep it quiet until AFTER THE ELECTION of the second term. So much for his promise to not lie to the American people.

    THE FAULT LIES WITH AMERICA WHAT DID NOT DEMAND TO SEE HIS PERSONAL RECORDS SO THAT THE FRAUD HE PULLED OFF WOULD HAVE BEEN REVEALED AND THIS DISASTER COULD HAVE BEEN AVOIDED.

    Obviously, it's almost impossible to pick the worst. But, putting us so far in debt would be My answer. Forster of all, it may be our downfall. Secondly, if plunging us into poverty isn't enough. The way those trillions were spent (i.e., given to our enemies) it could destroy us that way.
    Secondly, putting Clinton in a position she has no experience in. She was just used by pay to play people to give them more of what they want ($ & guns, etc) to try to destroy us and set up cells around the world.
    Basically, he ruined the lives of law abiding citizens forcing expenditures on them they can't pay (i.e. insurance).
    He nor his people should have had access to the white house during inaguration.

    If you discount being born it would have to be continuing living. If you are not thinking that way then it would be any and everything he has done.
