Obama’s Presidential Firsts

The Many Accomplishments of President Barack Hussein Obama (r. 2009-2017 (?))

By Tom Ririe

Quit trashing Obama’s accomplishments. He has done more than any other President before him. Here is a list of his impressive accomplishments:

  1. First President to be photographed smoking a joint.
  2. First President to apply for college aid as a foreign student, then deny he was a foreigner.
  3. First President to have a social security number from a state he has never lived in.
  4. First President to preside over a cut to the credit-rating of the United States.
  5. First President to violate the War Powers Act.
  6. First President to be held in contempt of court for illegally obstructing oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico.
  7. First President to require all Americans to purchase a product from a third party.
  8. First President to spend a trillion dollars on “shovel-ready” jobs when there was no such thing as “shovel-ready” jobs.

  12. First President to demand a company hand-over $20 billion to one of his political appointees.
  13. First President to tell a CEO of a major corporation (Chrysler) to resign.
  14. First President to terminate America’s ability to put a man in space.
  15. First President to cancel the National Day of Prayer and to say that America is no longer a Christian nation.
  16. First President to have a law signed by an auto-pen without being present.
  17. First President to arbitrarily declare an existing law unconstitutional and refuse to enforce it.
  18. First President to threaten insurance companies if they publicly spoke out on the reasons for their rate increases.
  19. First President to tell a major manufacturing company in which state it is allowed to locate a factory.
  20. First President to file lawsuits against the states he swore an oath to protect (AZ, WI, OH, IN).
  21. First President to withdraw an existing coal permit that had been properly issued years ago.
  22. First President to actively try to bankrupt an American industry (coal).
  23. First President to fire an inspector general of AmeriCorps for catching one of his friends in a corruption case.
  24. First President to appoint 45 czars to replace elected officials in his office.
  25. First President to surround himself with radical left wing anarchists.
  26. First President to golf more than 150 separate times in his five years in office.
  27. First President to hide his birth, medical, educational and travel records.
  28. First President to win a Nobel Peace Prize for doing NOTHING to earn it.
  29. First President to go on multiple “global apology tours” and concurrent “insult our friends” tours.
  30. First President to go on over 17 lavish vacations, in addition to date nights and Wednesday evening White House parties for his friends paid for by the taxpayers.
  31. First President to have personal servants (taxpayer funded) for his wife.
  32. First President to keep a dog trainer on retainer for $102,000 a year at taxpayer expense.
  33. First President to fly in a personal trainer from Chicago at least once a week at taxpayer expense.
  34. First President to repeat the Quran and tell us the early morning call of the Azan (Islamic call to worship) is the most beautiful sound on earth.
  35. First President to side with a foreign nation over one of the American 50 states (Mexico vs Arizona).
  36. First President to tell the military men and women that they should pay for their own private insurance because they “volunteered to go to war and knew the consequences.”
  37. Then he was the First President to tell the members of the military that THEY were UNPATRIOTIC for balking at the last suggestion.

I feel much better now. I had been under the impression he hadn’t been doing ANYTHING . . . Such an accomplished individual . . . in the eyes of the ignorant maybe!

    “Lucas Herndon writes that most people are interested in doing something, not undoing something.”

    And when it concerns using government to meddle in the economy and peoples’ lives, we must make sure that we’re not doing the wrong thing.

    “‘Most people I know get fired up because there’s a group of people hurting or in need and we have the power to help them,'”

    Taking money or property from people who have it in the name of helping those who don’t isn’t charity at all, it’s robbery using crocodile charity to make it sound “nice” and “noble” for the sycophantic media.

    If those who constantly agitate for a more intrusive, more expensive welfare state would directly help those in need instead of agitating as they do, America probably wouldn’t have a significant underclass as it does.

    What I find absolutely hilarious is that those same people who agitate for more intrusive, more expensive government at every level are also the ones who do whatever they can to stop oil and gas production, but now that oil and gas prices have bottomed out, they’re complaining that they’re not getting enough from the industry in the way of taxes to pay for their programs.

    So when the Republican nominee might as well be a Democrat when you look at the person’s previous track record and issue positions (look at the GOP Invertebrate Caucus’ last offerings — the Bushes, McCain, Romney), if you vote GOP, you’re voting for a Democrat, just the same as if you vote for the DNC candidate.

    “I have zero clue how hotels and other tourism related businesses in southern or eastern NM will benefit from people flying into Santa Fe.”

    People in these areas will benefit from people flying into Santa Fe in the same way that people in northern and western New Mexico will benefit when an airline gets an income guarantee for establishing a route to Roswell.

    (If you say “They wouldn’t in reality,” I would agree.)
