White House Under Fire For Liberal Policies, Says AMAC

by John Grimaldi – ‘Dissatisfaction with the president’s performance goes far beyond healthcare and the economy’ – 

WhiteHouseSouthFacadeWASHINGTON, DC, Feb 21 – The Obama administration has come under heavy fire in past days – much of it friendly fire – for its liberal economic and social policies. “The biggest criticisms deal with White House programs that are having a negative impact on job creation, programs such as Obamacare,” according to Dan Weber, president of the Association of Mature American Citizens.

The “government’s own bean counters” at the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office first reported that Obamacare will result in a loss of two to two-and-a-half million jobs in the years to come. In a follow up report, the CBO then reported that President Obama’s proposed minimum wage hike will cost the country another half-million jobs. And just the other day, the trade association for the medical device industry said that a new tax, courtesy of the Affordable Care Act, resulted in a loss of as many as 33,000 jobs last year.

“Of course, liberal surrogates came out in droves to deny the facts. For example, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said emphatically that ‘there is absolutely no evidence, and every economist [except those at the CBO] will tell you this, that there is any job-loss related to the Affordable Care Act.’ In other words, if you like your job you can keep it,” Weber added.

The AMAC chief asserts that the dissatisfaction with the president’s performance goes far beyond healthcare and the economy. “He gets poor grades across the board from friends and enemies alike. You don’t get more liberal than Oliver Stone who recently called Mr. Obama a ‘weak man’ who lacks a ‘spine.’ Those were pretty harsh words from a member of the liberal elite,” Weber pointed out.

The view from abroad is enlightening, as well. Famed freedom fighter Lech Walesa this week told a reporter that he’s become “disillusioned” by President Obama. “When he was elected,” he said, “everyone hoped and expected that he would reform not only the United States but also the rest of the world. But he failed to implement any constructive reforms. Moreover, it seems like perhaps he doesn’t even care if America is still perceived as the superpower it once was.”

Weber said that Mr. Obama is our president and, “like it or not, it’s sad to see him suffer so much disrespect because of his wrong-headed approach to governance. It’s sadder still to see our country’s image being tarnished in the eyes of the world because of the liberal elite’s flirtation with socialist, nanny state politics. But, if you are fed-up to here by the left turn Washington has taken over the past five years, there’s still hope if voters in November send a clear message to the White House: straighten up and fly right.”

I hope that in 2016 the Republican nominees for President of the United States do not go again criticizing and bashing each other in front of the millions of television viewers. This will not only hurt more the Republican party, but it will culminate in America’s worst nightmare: Hillary Clinton as President of the United States.

If I were a communist President of the United States of America, I would be doing exactly what Barack Obama is doing. Everyone on food stamps, everyone living week to week, everyone dependent on the government. His plan is working just like he and Vladamir planned it!

Hey! He promised change. He was elected twice by an illiterate voting public. We’re getting exactly what we deserve. Maybe the voting public will pull their heads out in the 2014 elections and the 2016 elections and elect someone who represents American values instead of communist block values!

I have not read all of the comments, few mention IMPEACHMENT. Why has this not been done? All I hear and read is how terrible our president is but no action is being taken to remove him from office. Anyone wanting to get elected could do so by promising to get this done. Any takers?

peter ferretti

If Repubs. keep House and win Senate, the only thing they need to do is IMPEACH Obama !!! If they don’t win the Senate ( the most likely outcome with a Demonic Pres. and a mostly ignorant electorate ), then bring Lawsuits against him on the times he has violated our Constit.(@20), violated Military Law– Benghazi, and violated INT’L. Law — Mexican gun running and illegal use of a US Embassy — Benghazi again. Also agree that an Impeachment Proceeding that fails is almost as good as one that succeeds at this late date. Also glad that I am not the only one who will change channels when the pompous O’Riley is on. If he can’t see that Obama lies about most things, wishes to make the US a 3rd World Country, and greatly favors Militant Muslims over Christians and Jews, then he is as blind as a bat and… Read more »

I agree with Romney who said the 47 percent was in Obama’s pocket. The 47 percent is in any democrats pocket! The next election there will probably be another super liar who will also have the FEMALES in her pocket and the usual “Democrat, No Matter What” voters in her pocket. UGH!

I am an avid reader and I would like to suggest that those who like reading as I do, to read The Harbinger by James Cahn. The author is a Messianic Jew who has quite a following and compares America with the Jews of the old Testament to the God who our founding fathers based their beliefs, in the forming of our constitution. I pray that our country as God spoke to King Solomon in 2 Chromicles 7: 14 said “If my people who are called by My name, will humble themselves and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land”
God Bless America!

Voters shouldn’t wait until the November General Election to send a clear message, but should also send it in the primary elections.

Alfred L. Kreps

A quote from an anonymous source. “When is President Obama lying? When he opens his mouth!” He seems to have a devious mind that is under the spell of nether world control. And it seems as if most of our elected congress and senate are without a backbone and/or have lost their individuality to the party and the party bosses such as Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, both of whom act like puppets in the ventriloquists hand, Obama. It will take generations beyond my very young granddaughters to clean up the many messes this administration has caused, if it can every be done. We are educating the girls to speak many languages in preparation to the possibility of emigrating to another country if the US continues on the decline.

Glenn Powers is on to the think tanks. They have become part of government in that they are part of the intellectual component, like tenured professors, pundents and the media establishment. Universities that receive research grants and are funded by subsidized student loans are part of the ruling class. What does it make the people, when there is a ruling class? Think tanks must be careful in their positions for only one reason. Will it affect their funding? Policy that is either opposed by their targeted doners or that comes to the attention of enough citizens to make a row must be avoided or obscured, like stating they are for free trade, but fail to define the term so as to understand what they really advocate. Mr. Grimaldi is representing AMAC and for that reason appears to be caught in that same type trap. I read his article in the… Read more »

What will people do when Senators and Congressmen are placed under arrest for not following Executive orders?

Liam

What do you mean it’s sad to see him suffer so much disrespect for his wrong headed policies….?! He’s getting just what he deserves. If the poor little boy can’t stand the heat, then he should get out of the kitchen. .

This country is run by an Oligarchy of the rich and powerful. Our elected leaders have become pawns in a bigger game played by these power brokers and real decision makers. Obama is a weak, unprincipled, not too smart guy who was elected because we have a publicly educated, dumbed-down electorate who vote like robots with not thought involved. This country is a shadow of what it once was and it’s time for people to quit kidding themselves about it.

Sandy Belch

There should be only one question to ask anyone who is running for Congress: Will you vote for term limits for both the House and Senate? All they do these days is ensure their own re-election instead of doing what is best for our country.

Glenn Powers

BLA BA BLA BLA BLA! Every conservative think tank is the same.They send me “fundraisers” with the thin veil of a “survey”. I don’t believe they are interested in anything other than my $$$! So no one is really DOING anything (impeachment?) Talk about disillusionment! The most recent ray of light is the article in the left wing “Newsweek” finally agreeing with the “other side” about the Obama regime.

Marcella Dellaposta

This is all to get us in line for the one world government, which will be extremely anti-God as their god is satan, which some of them have proudly admitted. 100% of the elected Dumocrats are Marxist and the old guard Republicans are also. That is why nothing ever goes our way. The primary elections in the Republican party are fixed and the general election is fixed by the Dumocrats. This has been going on for over 100 years but it has escalated since they now control the computers, which count the votes. Also, with half the people on the dole and uneducated as to what is happening, there will never be enough votes to put conservatives back in charge. They give us a pseudo-conservative network called Fox and an insurance vehicle called AMAC to keep us busy talking and thinking that we have a chance. The only person that… Read more »

Charles Krauthammer for President!

Cheryl Abe

Vladimer Putin said it all.

“ANY FOURTH GRADE HISTORY STUDENT KNOWS SOCIALISM HAS FAILED IN EVERY COUNTRY, AT EVERY TIME IN HISTORY. PRESIDENT OBAMA AND HIS DEMOCRATS ARE EITHER IDIOTS OR DELIBERATELY TRYING TO DESTROY THEIR OWN COUNTRY.”

I would rather have Mr Putin, our ally, as our President, then this liar, Obama.

Vernon

Right on !!

Paul R

So you tell your wife, “honey I want to fundamentally change you.” Do you think she would feel loved? Do you think Obama loves America? He’s ashamed of America. Sorry for answering this question for you.

Mike

You get who you vote for. Americans greed is why we are where we are. Too few sincrely support the radical cuts if spening and government size that is need to save this country. The mantra is ” CUT SPENDING, BUT NOT MY PROGRAMS.
