Reasons to Vote Against Barack Obama..just 44 of the top ones…


  • The man started his presidency off with a bang by botching his oath of office.
  • For good measure, he set the tone for his administration for allowing Chief Justice John Roberts to take the blame for the error.
  • Obama promises on the campaign trail to immediately shut down Guantanamo Bay.  The detention facility is open three years later and counting.
  • In the same breath, he promises to restore habeas corpus. Three years into his term, he signs the National Defense Authorization Act, which leaves open the possibility of indefinite detention of American citizens.
  • President Obama ordered the assassination of an American citizen.
  • As Senator, Obama spoke out against but voted for the Patriot Act.
  • As President, he extended it, with an auto-pen, while he was in France.
  • Obama continues the “Bush practice” of extraordinary rendition.
  • As a candidate, Obama promises to end the War in Iraq and bring all troops home within 16 months. He even says in 2007 that it would be the first thing he would do in office, and that “you can take that to the bank.” As president, he announces all troops would be withdrawn by the end of 2011 (34 months later).
  • Obama states the Afghan War would conclude in June 2011, but projections now have us running into 2014.
  • As Senator, Obama opposes the surge in Iraq. He claims that increasing troop levels by 20,000 would actually increase sectarian violence.
  • When pulling troops out of Iraq, Obama tries to claim success for ending the war, without giving credit to Bush or the troops for any “victory.” The Bush surge was what turned the tide in the war.
  • Sectarian violence is up sharply since Obama pulled troops out of Iraq in December 2011.
  • President Obama refuses to say “victory” is necessarily the goal in Afghanistan. Obama reasons the U.S. should not project the image of Emperor Hirohito being forced to sign a treaty of surrender before Macarthur to end the war against Japan.
  • Emperor Hirohito did not sign the treaty of surrender ending the war against Japan. It was his foreign minister Shigemitsu.
  • Obama  plans to ease travel restrictions to communist Cuba in 2009. And in 2011.
  • The president pledges a “new beginning” with the Cuban dictatorial regime.
  • A glance at a Cuban-U.S. relations timeline running to December 2011 shows nothing changed.
  • President Obama greets Venezuela’s socialist dictator Hugo Chavez warmly at the Summit of the Americas.
  • Earlier that month, Chavez calls Obama an “ignoramus.”
  • At the same summit, President Obama sits patiently through a 50 minute diatribe against the United States delivered by socialist strongman Daniel Ortega, only scribbling notes instead of walking out with his diplomatic team.
  • President Obama meets a grinning Daniel Ortega at the same summit.
  • When asked later by Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper what he thought of the anti-American tirade, President Obama replies, “It was 50 minutes long. That’s what I thought.”
  • The attempted subversion of the rule of law in Honduras by the socialist president Zelaya, which would have unconstitutionally put him on the ballot for a third term, prompts his judicial removal from office. Obama condemns the supposed “coup” as “not legal.”
  • President Obama directs his Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to cut off $30 million in aid to Honduras.
  • Election fraud propelling anti-Israel Iranian president and saber-rattling madman Mahmoud Ahmadinejad back to power leads to a mass civil uprising. Despite reports of widespread and cruel bloodshed repressing the protests, President Obama says nothing for ten days.
  • President Obama refuses to “intervene” in pro-democratic Iranian protests.
  • Obama’s first call as president is made to the Palestinian Authority’s Fatah leader President Mahmoud Abbas.
  • Obama’s first formal interview is conducted with Al-Arabiya television.
  • One of President Obama’s first executive orders is to greatly restrict the influence of lobbyists in his administration.
  • Years later, it is well-known that the Obama administration routinely meets with lobbyists off White House grounds, where Secret Service logs are not kept.
  • In 2012, Obama promotes a recent lobbyist with Mexican illegal immigration advocate La Raza from a position as director of intergovernmental affairs to director of the Domestic Policy Council.
  • The second executive order Obama gives is one reversing Bush era rules safeguarding prior administration’s records. It narrows “executive privilege.”
  • Obama invokes executive privilege within the first year over the gatecrasher fiasco.
  • In late 2011, the Obama administration refuses to turn over all communiques relating to the politically seedy financing of bankrupt solar panel company Solyndra.
  • Another early executive order froze pay for White House staffers making over $100,000. A year later 74% of staffers got a pay raise, many of them to well over a $100,000. (Freezing pay does not apply to promotions or position changes.) The average boost was 9%, three times private sector average.
  • The next year, 54% got a raise. The average increase was 8%, and of those who got raises, it was nearly 16%.
  • Barack Obama was declared by presidential historian Michael Beschloss as “probably the smartest guy ever to become president.” Beschloss gushed that Obama’s IQ was “off the charts,” but when pressed by radio host Don Imus, he could not say what Obama’s IQ was.
  • Despite being heralded as a brilliant thinker, Obama still to this day refuses to release his college records.
  • Barack Obama received a degree from prestigious Columbia University, where hardly anybody recalls him attending there.
  • As editor of the Harvard Law Review, Barack Obama anonymously wrote one article – championing abortion.
  • The one quote provided from the article cited by Politico contains a grammatical error – “in to” instead of “into.”
  • A letter to a Harvard newspaper written by Obama shows rampant grammatical errors, including a demonstrable lack of subject-predicate agreement.
  • In Dreams from My Father, Obama makes known that he “chose his friends carefully” and deliberately sought out “Marxist Professors,” “structural feminists,” and discussed with his friends the socialist, anti-colonialist revolutionary Franz Fanon.
