Make no mistake about it: Barack Obama is in over his head as president of these United States.

Politico.com dissects Barack Obama's pre-election promises and discovers that he has morphed into the president that Hillary Clinton would have been had she not lost the election.

How ironic.

This country was determined not to elect a female for president (Sarah Palin) but we ended up with one anyway!

On the campaign trail, Obama belittled Sen. Hillary Clinton's decision to defend the war by claiming he was the sole candidate to oppose the war. Clinton argued that Obama's tight timeline to remove the troops from Iraq was unrealistic. She was right.

According to Politico.com:

Rather than withdraw all combat troops on a set timeline, Obama opted for a conditions-based withdrawal that will leave as many as 50,000 troops in the war zone at the end of 2011 — exactly the sort of drawdown he maligned Clinton for proposing.

Clinton also opposed Obama's healthcare plans as both inadequate and ineffective. Both candidates proposed universal healthcare, but only Clinton's healthcare plan included a mandate that all Americans be insured. Of course, Obama opposed the mandate because his puppeteers didn't approve. Obama said Clinton’s plan would require “harsh, stiff penalties on those who don’t purchase it.”

Typically, Obama has now flip flopped on that issue. According to Politico.com, Obama is now moving toward Clinton’s position of a mandate.

His budget outline proposes a health care plan that “must put the United States on a clear path to cover all Americans.” That strongly suggests a mandate, since any volunteer system would see some opting out. As Ezra Klein reported in The American Prospect when the administration’s health care plan began to leak out, “Despite the controversy over the individual mandate in the campaign, [Obama’s team] will support it.”

Obama has always come across as a girly man who needs his wife's (or daughter's) approval for every decision he makes. Just like Michelle Obama wears the pants in their marriage, Hillary Clinton apparently wears the pants in the White House.

    This post is full of all kinds of foolishness...

    What people don't understand is that Obama is not special. He is just your average politician. He is only doing the things the average liberal would have done if they had the power and influence that he had.

    Since he happens to be half-black, he can make these crazy decisions and not really be demonized for it or else his criticizers would be accused of being racists.

    Anti- PC, I feel sorry for you. Nobody can do anything right, according to your holy word. You are constantly pointing the finger and playing the blame game.
    It must be miserable to have an attitude like yours - I bet you suffer from insomnia, too, don't you? Seek help, dear.

    when will the obama-bashing end??

  • sexieblacc

    @lialin I agree, I usually skip over ALL Obama posts because they are always negative and blown out of proportion. Anyways I dont see what the problem is. Oh well...obama a great president is getting help from Clinton our next great president... how bad....is that really? Why is this news that they are HELPING each other? I think we all knew that they're policies were similar and that was the going theme on the primary trail THAT'S why it was more of a popularity contest than a political one because they're policies WERE similar THAT'S why pundits were calling for him to make her VICE president......soooo again, why is this news now since we've been knowing it for a year and a half.....

Big Ups to Barack!!

  • aduvalprincess

    Thanks Daisy=)

  • Lala11_7

    Clinton is a moderate that leans more to the right...

    Obama is a liberal who leans more to the left...

    Obama is being SMART to engage and use the viewpoints of someone who leans to the opposite of him...

    That means that he's IN THE MIDDLE!!!

    IF HE'S IN THE MIDDLE THAT MEANS WHAT????

    BALANCE!!!

    Just so you know...
