Is Obama a President Without a Purpose?

Is Obama a President Without a Purpose?

Obama-hand-on-mouth

by Yvette Carnell

If you’ve tried to follow President Obama’s moral compass over the past few years, then by now, you’ve surely lost your way. Since the beginning, Obama has seemed more interested in some sort of grand bargain than actually fighting for what he believes in, whatever that is (does anyone even know?).  After you look past the smoke and mirrors and empty rhetoric, it’s clear that the only big piece of legislation enacted and fought for by President Obama is the Affordable Care Act. Six years years into his presidency and he has one major achievement.

The Guardian‘s Gary Younge compared President Obama to Lyndon Johnson, making the smallness of Obama’s presidency, both in achievement and clarity of vision, even more pronounced:

Barack Obama has now been in power for longer than Johnson was, and the question remains: “What the hell’s his presidency for?” His second term has been characterised by a profound sense of drift in principle and policy. While posing as the ally of the immigrant he is deporting people at a faster clip than any of his predecessors; while claiming to be a supporter of labour he’s championing trade deals that will undercut American jobs and wages. In December, even as he pursued one whistleblower, Edward Snowden and kept another, Chelsea Manning, incarcerated, he told the crowd at Nelson Mandela’s funeral: “There are too many leaders who claim solidarity with Madiba’s struggle for freedom, but do not tolerate dissent from their own people.

President Obama will say anything, but stands for nothing. And so this is where we are now; stuck with a president who doesn’t believe in much of anything, just waiting for it all to be over:

If there was a plot, he’s lost it. If there was a point, few can remember it. If he had a big idea, he shrank it. If there’s a moral compass powerful enough to guide such contradictions to more consistent waters, it is in urgent need of being reset.

Obama promised ‘change you can believe in’, but it’s not just that he hasn’t delivered, it’s that he hasn’t even put forth an effort or laid out a clear path. He is a president who has always been on the road to nowhere, certainly nowhere that actually matters to the majority of American people.

    His purpose was to continue to agenda of the kleptocratic elite that he has to answer to, and in that regard he’s done a superb job IMO. But, he’s performed exactly as I expected he would and I said so back in ’08 b4 he was selected/elected. In fact, I predicted that he’d be worse than his immediate predecessor and in many respects he has been. A much higher number of drone attacks,  has yet to close GITMO as promised on the campaign trail, a worsening economy after bailing-out the greedy banksters, has done nothing of significance for black ppl who were his most loyal constituency during BOTH of his campaigns, yet won’t even mention them publicly unless it’s to chastise them. And yet he still has plenty of supporters among our ppl who will jump to his defense as soon as any criticism is raised against him no matter how legitimate it may be.

    As to the ACA aka Obamacare legislation that he takes so much credit for yet wasn’t even his original idea, wasn’t it Hillary who originally attempted to get a major health care plan passed during her husbands reign in office? And wasn’t it actually modeled after Romney’s plan during his stint as governor in Massachusetts? So then y should he be given so much credit for it as if he somehow conjured it up outta nowhere? 

    I think when all is said and done and he finally leaves office, he’ll eventually be looked upon as having been one of the most disappointing POTUSs in recent memory, and please don’t say GW Bush was more disappointing because nobody expected much of anything from him to begin with.

    I just wish that, if nothing else, his presidency will serve as a lesson to black ppl to stop believing that anyone in office, no matter their skin tone, will ever truly do anything meaningful for them.

    But, alas, so much for wishful thinkin’. 🙂

    If President Barack Obama, the CBC, and/or other Black leaders truly stepped up to the plate to competently serve U.S . born Black men, women, and children like Hispanics, Koreans, Caucasians, Jews, etc., and/or other ethnic leaders definitely do to serve his or her communities…….
    ……Acorn diatribe, cartoons, and/or other nonsense depicting our Black leaders as being “stupid/backwards/fools” being circulated by any Caucasian or anyone else would be meaningless, because acts and deeds to serve the Black community, would prove to the contrary.
    Koreans, Hispanics, Caucasians, Jews, Filipinos, etc., etc., own and control Banking institutions, Shopping Malls, Farming enterprises, Textile firms, Construction companies, manufacturing and engineering firms, etc., etc., to promote the prosperity of themselves and his or her specific ethnic communities, so much so, that sarcastic cartoons, and/or other nonsense depicting his or her community as being “stupid, backwards, unsophisticated”, is meaningless, and won’t stop them from thriving or competently serving their respective ethnic communities.

    Sarcastic cartoons, and/or other nonsense depicting anyone, or any community as being “stupid, backwards, and unsophisticated”, carry weight if the description has merit, which in far too many instances the depiction would have merit as this concerns charlatan sellout Black leaders such as, Barack Obama, Clarence Thomas, multiple members of the Congressional Black Caucus, treasonous and blatantly inept university educated Black lawyers, etc., etc.

    IT’S amazing how successful MARGERET SANGER has been; not only getting us to kill 16 million babies but convincing sisters they had a right to do it.

    IT was just reported last week that in the state of NY there were more abortions of black babies than live births for the first time.

    THE most diabolical thing about this was the role black leaders played in this and many of them are still among us acting as though they’ve done nothing ; and worst part of all is that we as a people in the year 2014 still haven’t caught on to this yet.

    KEEP POSTING YOUR WORK!

  5. MichaelLofton says:

    Indeed  ROBERT@atx
    Margaret Sanger died in 1966, and it is shameful that our Black leaders continue to promote “Planned-Parenthood” and that the Black community continues to blindly promote the Democratic Party that is in lock step with Margaret  Sanger ideology!.

    None of the other president’s had a purpose either as far as I am concerned!  None of those others did anything but take the country down financially, example, George illiterate Bush.

    Even with all his shortcomings former President George Bush has done more for the Black community than charlatan President Barack Obama has ever done, or will even consider doing. 
    If former President George Bush or any Caucasian President were to show the same level of contempt that Barack Obama and/or other charlatan Black leaders direct at Black people who look like them, disgruntled Blacks would be marching in mass in front of the White House, calling for the impeachment of any Caucasian elected official who has such a demeanor………but when own Black leaders betray the Black community absolutely nothing is said or done about this treasonous activity!
    ……..but Black folks have their Black President now,  and voted overwhelmingly for Barack “the Magic Negro” Obama, yet the Black community is worse off today than under former Presidents Ronald Reagan, George Bush, Bill Clinton, Richard Nixon, Lyndon B. Johnson, etc., etc.

    The same can be said as this pertains at the State, County and City branches of government as this pertains to all these sellout Black leaders that Black people vote into office, while receiving nothing but empty promises, deceitful acts, and/or disgraceful leadership in return, none of this being the fault of Caucasians, Hispanics, Koreans, Republicans, etc.
    What is lacking is ethnic pride and sense as this pertains to this misfit Black leadership, and/or a dysfunctional Black electorate who refuse to hold the Black leaders that he or she voted for accountable!

    I have much more than just opinion based diatribe to support what I’ve posted.  I’ve actually formally (written) and verbally petitioned multiple Black leaders in the district where I reside and pay taxes only to receive no response, a deceitful response, and/or a treasonous act in return.
    I also personally know of several reputable individuals who are Black like me, who have also petitioned both past and present day Black elected leaders for redress when government is at fault, and this includes formally petitioning Barack Obama, which  resulted in no response, a deceitful response, and/or an act of treason.

    January 7, 2009
    Mr. Barack Obama, President-elect United States Hay-Adams Hotel 800 Sixteenth (16th) Street Washington, D.C. 20005
    RE: Enforcement of the Fourteenth (14th) Amendment to The United States Constitution
    Dear Mr. Obama:
    Every American citizen is obligated to respect and enforce the constitution and laws of this nation, some more than others. This obligation is greater with career, constitutional lawyers and buck-passing stops with the Commander-in Chief of the United States of America.
    Leon E. Lofton Jr. (01-16-18 to 07-16-03) an honorably discharged, disabled American combat infantry veteran of a foreign war (WWII) was discharged September 25, 1945 into a society as cruel as the one from which he was drafted November 14, 1942, a fact proven by the complete and exact copy of an enclosed court document titled JOINT PRETRIAL STATEMENT, NO. 895188: Leon E. Lofton Jr. and Esther M. Lofton vs. School Board, Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) Superior Court of the State of California for the County of Los Angeles.
    Even though the cited matter has been an already agreed upon matter since January 23, 1967, it still pends due to massive affinity fraud in every American institution from sea to shining sea.
     Final judgment and order in case 895188 authored by the Plaintiffs pursuant to Amendment X, USC signed between November 22, 1975 and February 21, 1976 pursuant to ARTICLE VI, Section 19, CC. by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of California, the Honorable Donald R. Wright who as Presiding Judge of the Superior Court of Los Angeles was the last judge of court of record. Final judgment and order (case 895 188) is in the custody of and/or under the control of John A. Clarke, Executive Officer/ Clerk of the Los Angeles Superior Court.
     Affinity fraud in every institution is further substantiated by a copy of the enclosed booklet authored and self -published in 2001 by plaintiff Esther M. Lofton titled Theft by Court and case BC385899: Michael L. Lofton v. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa documenting the fact that the Plaintiff, a 30-year employee of the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) has been on NO SHIFT/NO PAY (NS/NP) since October 17, 2007 in the absence of cause.
    Despite your sermon condemning black males in an apostolic church in Chicago, IL on Fathers’ Day 2008 Leon E. Lofton, Jr., his son Michael L. Lofton  and Carl A. Steadman, Jr. are all black males, all descendants of slaves and all citizens of the United States of America.
    The DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE adopted by the United States Congress July 4, 1776 provides that when institutions of the people fail to secure the inalienable rights becoming destructive to that end, it is the right, it is the duty of the people to alter or destroy that form and to institute new government laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form as to them seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.
    Execution/enforcement of the judgment and order case # 895 188 by Constitutional lawyer Barack Obama or President of the United States Barack Obama satisfies the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution and provides the means of the dictates of the Declaration of Independence.
    Sincerely,
    Signed by Esther M. Lofton

     To date President Barack Obama has yet to respond. President Barack Obama is responding and/or using his executive influence to address or resolve the complaints of millions of illegal aliens and/or to commute the prison sentences of “crack cocaine” convicted felons.
    http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-1075222 
    Evidently, President Barack Obama, the Obama Administration and the Democratic Party place a higher priority to serve illegal aliens, and convicted felons and ignore or trash the claims for redress from law abiding U.S. citizens, specifically law abiding U.S. descendants of slavery, law abiding U.S. citizens and legal immigrants being the most important segment of the U.S. any elected official or public servant is mandated by the Constitution, the “Oath of Office”, the executive influence and/or the “rule of law” to competently represent.

    THE JOB OF A CONGRESSMAN
    “There are cases where an individual has been wrongfully treated by his government and about the only way, unless the individual resorts to court, and even in some cases the courts are not able to give proper relief, the only area or avenue open to the individual is through his representative. When you find a bona fide error has been made, I suggest that you make a maximum effort to remedy it. This I feel is a vital and important function of those of us in the House of Representatives”.
    Authors: Donald G. Tacheron and Morris Udall, from the book entitled, “The Job of the Congressman”, pages 65 and 66.
