Well....despite there being much truth in this article, I'm willing to bet it won't be covered by the MSM.

Somebody besides myself noticed that the results in Obama's Presidency are the opposite of what he said he wanted:

1) Reduce economic inequality - nope the worst income equality ever since he's had the reigns
2) Lower disparity between black and white income and wealth - nope, never been higher
3) Close Gitmo - nope
4) Stop the drones - Nope increased them
5) Make Wall Street pay - Nope he gave trillions borrowed from the Chinese to enrich the rich Wall Street fat cats.

Bringing The World Together.

Fairey stole the image he used in that famous poster.

I don't consider him a very honest character, much like the person in his poster.

Barack Obama - Blame you can believe in

That is what his slogan should have been.

6) ending the wars
7) Addressing the exportation of jobs

All things which absolutely gave people a reason to vote for Obama over McCain. That he just didn't do these things but did the opposite (in most cases, like Gitmo, he just ignored it) was why I can't understand anyone voting for him the second time.

Obama HOPE ?? More like the Great NOPE.


It is amazing to look back and remember how most of the country and the world were behind him. Heck he even got the Nobel Peace Prize. They should take that back.

We were promised the most transparent administration ever and all we got were scandal after scandals and lies.

Bush had his short comings but compared to Obama.... America deserves better.
