Just like Bill Clinton would say, it depends on what is means; we must say failure depends on how you measure failure and success. Let us be clear, we do consider them to be at opposite ends of the spectrum.
In the past, measurement of success of an administration has generally been broadly measured on two criteria; is the United States safer and more secure than it was when the new administration came into power and is the American economy stronger or as James Carville said, “it’s the economy stupid?”
When we measure Obama on these two criteria you can only conclude that his regime has clearly failed. The world is far less safe and America is much weaker and less secure. The economy has never recovered and continues to struggle with true unemployment unacceptably high, growth nonexistent and now inflation is becoming a factor and interest rates are already near 0%. All indications are energy and food costs are now in an upward spiral. In addition the regime is immersed in scandals of its own making. Yes, based on past standards Obama is a failure of immense proportions.
If we were to ask the Obamas, Jarrett, Axelrod, Podesta and other Marxist/Progressives if this regime has been a failure, I believe we would receive a resounding NO. I believe they would say they have been a huge success and have accomplished more of their goals then they believed possible.
Let us never forget, the only goal this regime stated they wanted to accomplish was to “fundamentally transform the United States.” We now know what they meant. By their standards, they are achieving that goal and are consequently a huge success.
The United States is no longer the satin they despised internationally. We are now a much weaker military force and consequently the imperialist United States, as they view us, is unable to dictate to other nations how they are to behave. We can bluster and make grandiose statements but have far less military capacity and certainly not the will or leadership to enforce or backup our bluster. Consequently Obama’s regime is achieving their goal of making the United States much less powerful and much less of an “evil” imperialist.
Economically they are also achieving their goal of spreading wealth, centralizing elements of production through regulation and intimidation and abolishing individualism, independence and freedom. These are all dictates of their philosophical leader Karl Marx. It is the goal of this regime to have an economy that just keeps up with population growth. In that respect they have failed because we have not had economic growth equal to population growth. As Marx told them, when economic growth equals population growth the greedy evil capitalist cannot accumulate and thus he is no longer in a position to exploit the worker. The potential growth and prosperity of the United States has been greatly restricted by a strangling national debt of their making, by dictatorial rulings through agencies such as EPA, HHR, and of course the mandatory takeover of the health industry which has been mandatory to every Marxist takeover.
In addition the Obama regime has been very successful in negating the United States Constitution. As Obama stated the United States Constitution is now dead. We are no longer a government with three co-equal branches of government with checks and balances. We would have to be considered a totalitarian state with an elected dictator.
With the negation of the United States Constitution we are now a country that is no longer governed by the rule of law. We are now governed by arbitrary law with the arbiter the elected dictator. The freedoms we have held so dear have also been negated. Our freedom of political speech has been negated through actions of the IRS. Freedom of the press is being assaulted every day with actions already taken to dictate what the press can report and Marxist/Progressive senators introducing laws to regulate journalists. House member Cummings has orchestrated a full governmental assault on a private citizen for exercising her right of free political speech. Cummings is being protected and encouraged by the regime.
Our freedom of protection from having a state religion imposed on us has been overridden as well by this regime. We now have a state religion called secularism. Non-secularists are prohibited from practicing their chosen religion in any public forum and are being chastised and condemned as terrorists and right wing extremists by the Marxist/Progressives. The mandate to abolish religion and morality was also given to his disciples by Karl Marx.
Oh yes, by the standards of the Obamas, Jarrett, Axelrod, Podesta and other Marxist/Progressives, this regime has been very successful in achieving their goals and thus a huge success in achieving their stated goal of “fundamentally transforming the United States.”
