Barack Obama: Our perfect president

By Dave Weinbaum

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | Don't believe me? Just ask Obama. In an ABC Jake Tapper interview our President said, "I've made all the right choices." Self-grading translations? A+++. Now that's a big improvement over the B+/A- he gave himself after his first year. Barack wouldn't lie to us peons, would he? So let's take the 'tude of trusting him until proven otherwise and explore his massive accomplishments:

  • Stimulus 1 and 2 - Way back in 2009 when the Dems held the Congress and the White House, Barry demanded a $trillion stimulus be passed, promising that our then unacceptable 7.5% unemployment would never go above 8%. Seems he was right in that our unemployed sped so fast past to 10%, festering around the 9.1% level that no one remembers it at the 8% level. Grade: A+++

  • Shovel-ready jobs - Having promised the stimulus $trillion to quickly enable the thousands of jobs just waiting for a shovel, we were excited-except almost nothing happened. Two years later Obama was caught joking about the lack of these infrastructure fixes. For those of you haters who think you've been shoveled a load of BS, It's not Barry's fault! Just within the last day, Dear Leader has noted America has lost its edge, ambition and imagination. Shovels be damned-it's our fault! Grade A+++

  • Demonizing Wall Street Bankers AKA Jews - Oh boy, here's an easy one for Obama. Who doesn't hate Jews-I mean Wall Street-silly me? Forget the real reason the economy tanked was the entirely Dem-controlled subprime mortgage fiasco that forced banks to sell bad mortgages. One California occupier, Patricia MacAllister, amazingly fired for her anti-Semitic rants, pointed out "The Jews have been run out of 109 countries and it's time we run them out of this one." BTW, she's black and is immune from racism. We're gonna let the Libiot Jews grade Obama here. JStreet wants to know if there's a grade above A+++.

  • Obama, the great friend of Israel - How could he not be? Didn't the wise Jews of America give him millions? Didn't almost 80% of them vote for him? Didn't Barry say Jerusalem was to be the united Jewish Capitol of the State of Israel? So what if he's now demanded Israel move back to indefensible borders, cutting said 3,250-year-old Capitol into a Jewish and Jew-hater city? C'mon he loves the Jews, just like his tutors Jeremiah Wright and Louis Farrakhan said he should. Grade A+++ plus an autographed copy of the Koran from Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

  • Racial Justice - Here our Dear Leader gets help. After all, there's only one of him to spread the hate--I mean love--between Americans. His choice for DOJ head, Eric Holder upholds all Obama's visions on race relations. We know this because Eric's boss has never openly disagreed with him, even as he dropped charges on the anti-white, anti-Semitic, pro-Muslim New Black Panthers for obstructing a voting poll in Philadelphia , something they admitted. Another A+++!

  • Fast and Furious - Another assist goes to Holder here; even though you'd think he'd take all the credit for himself. After all, here's the perfect blame-Bush scenario. Yep, it started under Dubya, but getting American guns into the hands of the Mexican drug cartels was an especially brilliant ploy by the DOJ and Homeland Security. It only got one or two US Border Patrollers killed using guns our brilliant officials gave them. Amazingly though, Eric is trying to give the credit for knowing about this to his boss, Barack Obama, who claimed to have known about it months before Eric knew. O gets A+++ and for his modesty, Holder gets a signed copy of Communist Manifesto from George Soros.

  • Arab Spring - Here's Obama's shining moment. He managed to abet revolutions across the face of northern Africa-- Tunisia , Egypt and Libya . Dear Leader was seemingly distracted in Iran where those in the population wanted to end the America-hater's anti-Semitic Sharia rule, but who's counting that? By the way, Tunisia and Egypt are headed for radical Muslim rule as the thirty-year Israeli-Egyptian peace is in the throes of a violent end. One more note: Just a week after Khadafi, (who Ann Coulter referred to as Bush's bitch) was murdered in captivity; the al-Qaeda flag was flying above the Libyan banner on an official Libyan government building. Obama at his best! A+++ and Muammar's friendship ring from Farrakhan ripped off his finger as he was being assassinated. Rumor has it the ring was given to Khadafi for his work killing 270 mostly American kids on Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie , Scotland . That showed us "wicked" Americans, eh Louie?

  • Ending the Bush Doctrine - Even without Sarah Palin's expertise on the subject, most know Obama ran against Bush's foreign policy. Yet, this one is difficult. It's hard to see where he's changed it. He even publicized time-lines to pull out the troops and is running just a little late on closing Gitmo. But hey, his drone killings of major Jihadists have outdone Bush even if it is a continuation of his policies. This is a tough one. Sorry O. You only get an A++ an autographed Dick Cheney book.

Obama recently asserted that Americans have lost their imagination. I think this column negates the above. I let mine run roughshod.

However, the load of grading O with all those perfect grades will weigh heavy on my shoulders forever. Now I know what a burden it is to go through life on a lie without media, friends, actors or other politicians to keep me honest.

President Obama, my sympathy for you is only exceeded by my regret of your election.
