Obama – The Anti-Midas Touch

Is there anything which Obama has touched which hasn’t turned into a complete disaster?

BAGHDAD – More than 80 people were killed and dozens more were wounded Monday in a string of violent attacks around Iraq, the deadliest day in the country so far this year, police and government officials said.

In the worst incident, two bombs exploded in a busy market in the city center of Kut, killing at least 42 and injuring more than 50.

  1. Well, he was successful in restructuring GM . . . oh, no he wasn’t.
    Well, he succeeded in keeping lobbyists out . . . oh, no he didn’t.
    Well, he never did something stupid like blame the Japanese tsunami for the US’s economic . . . oh, wait, he did.

    You mean George Walker Bush. Obama knew Iraq was a mess American military presence wouldn’t helping the situation – better get out as quickly as possible.

    • Three years and counting.

      Michael, you do realize Obama is Commander-in-Chief, and has been for some time. At some point, people should quit blaming Bush and look to the leader that campaigned on getting us out of there. In fact, as I recall, Bush had developed a timetable for withdraw, which Obama seems to have forgotten.

      But, that said, I agree, its time to bring the boys home. The American military does best when there’s an actual objective to their presence. The Iraqi people have had plenty of time to transition to a free democracy. If they won’t, they won’t. As to why we’re still in Afghanistan….. can anyone state? Or Libya? Or Yemen?

      I guess, Obama wanted to show the world what a real warmongering president was all about.

      The lyrics say it all…

      If you could only see me
      I know exactly where I am
      You wouldn’t want to be me
      Oh, I can assure you of that

      I’m not the guy to run with
      ’cause I’ll throw you off the line
      I’ll break you and destroy you
      Given time

      He’s King Midas with a curse
      He’s King Midas in reverse
      He’s King Midas with a curse
      He’s King Midas in reverse

      It’s plain to see it’s HOPEless
      Going on the way we are
      So even though I’d lose you
      You’d be better off by far

      He’s not the man to hold your trust
      Everything he touches turns to dust
      In his hands
      Nothing he can do is right
      He’d even like to sleep at night
      But he can’t

      All he touches turns to dust

      All he touches turns to dust

      All he touches turns to dust

      All he touches turns to dust

      I wish someone would find me
      And help me gain control
      Before I lose my reason
      And my soul

      He’s King Midas with a curse
      He’s King Midas in reverse
      He’s King Midas with a curse
      He’s King Midas in reverse

    While it may take a computer to foul things up faster, it takes a complete idiot to get EVERYTHING wrong. Even a monkey is right half the time.
