Obama’s Lowlights (6/28/12)

Food Stamps – New York Democratic Senator Gillibrand claims for every dollar spent on food stamps it returns 1.71 cents to the economy. How do dumb people like this who have absolutely no business savvy get elected to office? Food stamp spending has gone up by over 50% in the last three years (86 billion dollars), but the economy has grown at a measly 1% rate. Maybe we should put everyone on food stamps to get that 71% return?

Immigration reform – Obama’s executive order to stop the deportation of Hispanic youths clearly violates the Constitution by bypassing Congress. This is yet another executive power grab. As Arizona Governor Jan Brewer states “Most importantly this unilateral act is a pre-emptive strike against the United States Supreme Court and its decision on Senate Bill 1070.”

Birth Control Mandate – Obama says that Catholics once again rejected compromise on the matter. As if Catholics were given a voice on his legislation.

Eric Holder – A new Rasmussen Poll found that 40% of Americans want Holder to resign as head of the DOJ. Twenty-Seven percent do not want Holder to resign and 32% are undecided.

Golf – Our president has officially hit the golf course for the 100th time during his term. He has also attended over 150 campaign fundraisers in less than 3.5 years.

Fast and Furious - The lawsuit, Judicial Watch v. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, seeks all communication records between ATF officials and Kevin O'Reilly, former Obama White House Director of North American Affairs at the U.S. National Security Council. To avoid a contempt charge from the House, DOJ head Eric Holder had the White House to insert Executive Privilege (remember when Obama criticized the Bush administration from “hiding behind” executive privilege) on all Fast and Furious documents.

Government Censorship - From July to December 2011, Google’s Transparency Report indicates that U.S. agencies requested 6192 items be removed from Google services. That’s a 718 percent increase from the 757 items requested to be removed in the prior six-month period.

Brett McGurk - President Barack Obama's choice to be ambassador to Iraq has withdrawn from consideration for the post after a series of emails came to light detailing what critics called an improper relationship with a journalist during a previous tour in Baghdad.

Universal Healthcare – In Greece their social healthcare system is breaking down: “Greece's rundown state hospitals are cutting off vital drugs, limiting non-urgent operations and rationing even basic medical materials for exhausted doctors.”

Voter Participation Center – It was revealed the non-profit group sent out a voter ID card to a dead dog in Virginia.

Drones – Apparently many Americans fear the “Orwellian big brother” prospect of hundreds of drones patrolling the U.S. skies within the next decade or so.

ObamaCare – Many far Left leaning individuals are hopeful the individual mandate is ruled unconstitutional because this paves the way to a single payer system.

West Virginia - Senator Manchin, along with several other West Virginia Democrats running for re-election, are engaging in another free-spirited move: They will skip the Democratic Convention entirely.

Russia – Putin exposes a weak Obama as he escalates tensions in Syria.

Campaign Hecklers – Hecklers at Romney campaign events are getting paid, two of the protesters and an Obama campaign official told BuzzFeed
