Obama Had The Worst 2013

WaPo’s Cillizza awards Obama Worst 2013. But just skimming the article, it is remarkable the number of assertions he makes that simply aren’t so. The one that leapt off my iPad at me was where Obama united the country after Newtown. Or the idea that Obama might have wanted to do something about debt and spending, other than to make it worse.

It does amuse me to watch the sycophants couch their timid criticism in lies, and blame Teh One’s failures on circumstances beyond his control.

  3. Bezos was supposed to improve the paper, with his purchase, facts not in evidence.

  4. Newtown was when Piers Morgan and his whore friends at CNN pimped dead babies cheap cheap cheap you didn’t even need a promo code

    and all they accomplished was to sell a world record number of firearms in a very short span of time

    CNN doesn’t always think about stuff very deeply huh

  5. May you have another year worser than the last Soft Bottom, along with an abraded rectum.

  6. The worst 2013? He didn’t have his insurance cancelled, he didn’t lose his job, he and his family are all living in luxury, happy and well fed. He didn’t lose his house to a fire or tornado.

    I’d say that a lot of people had worse years.

  7. Not as bad as the victims in Boston. Round up these muzzie f-sticks before they get you.

  8. Pay a little attention to the claim! It’s the worst year in Washington.

    The claim is, Obama is the elected official (this is probably limited to elected officials) who had the worst year.

    Lois Lerner was not a politician. Jesse Jackson Jr. resigned already by the end of 2012. Susan Rice had her scandal in 2012 and besides was also not an elected official. Anthony Weiner was no longer in Washington in 2013. Ryan Loskarn was only a chief of staff to a Senator (Lamar Alexander R-Tenn.) and it’s too recent and it’s also one thing. Ditto for Cong. Trey Radel. (R-Fla.) Nothing much has happened yet to Trey Radel.

  9. Mr Finkelman noted that the claim is that Mr Obama had the worst year in Washington. So far this year, 103 people in our nation’s glorious capital have been shot, stabbed, strangled or otherwise murdered, killed stone-cold graveyard dead. The site does not give 2013 numbers for forcible rapes, but the lowest number since 2007 was 150, and there were 236 reported forcible rapes last year. I’m guessing that there are well over 100 women in the District who’ve had a lot worse year than Barack Hussein Obama.

  12. It may take a generation to repair the damage to this country’s economy and institutions done by Democrats and Obama.

  13. Actually, the American people were the ones who had the worst 2013.
    And Obama was the cause of it.
