Things Obama Has Given In on

Introduction:I am not trying to take sides in this piece. I feel that the Office of the President of the United States is one we should all respect, regardless of whether we like who is there at the moment. The position is one that used to be known as the most powerful position in the world. But not anymore. I think the world looks at us and our situation and sees that we can be pushed around quite easily. Below are a few examples why.

  • 01

    The Donald

    This is old news, I know. But I find it embarrassing that Donald "You're Fired" Trump can bully the President. Trump was able to get Obama to show some documentation that no one else previously could. And who is this Trump? Is he threatening our country with WMDs? Is he a god? No. He's a millionaire business-man who has his name on buildings. Way to go, Mr. President.

    Immigration Activists and Future Voters

    Ummm, Mr. President, sir, when you had ICE Director Morton send out that memo entitled, (and this is a long one)"Exercising Prosecutorial Discretion Consistent with the Civil Immigration Enforcement Priorities of the Agency for Apprehension, Detention, and Removal of Aliens" did you know that that was illegal? Ok, ok, illegal is a big word. Umm, let's say that you were basically ignoring our Constitution? There's a requirement in there that if there is any (that's a key word, stay with me, now) legislation on immigration reform, congress has to act/approve it.

  • 03

    Hurricane Irene

    Ok. This looks pretty bad, if you ask me. The country is in dire straits because we are having an economic crisis and we do have military deployed into some hell-holes, and you decide to take a nice vacay with the family to Martha's Vineyard? You can tell me your job is stressful, sir, but I'd like to see you out in the desert with some long-sleeve BDU's on, having to tread carefully lest you step on something that might take off the lower half of your body. That is stressful. And, let's see. The reason you did cut your vacation short was because a hurricane was coming. Not because your country needed you.

  • 04

    Republican Debates

    Who is your secretary, advisor, or handler, sir? When you first thought - hmm, maybe I'll make my speech on the 7th, why didn't he/she tell you - "Not a good date. That's the night of the Republican debates." Apparently, no one sent you the memo. You announced your speech, then had to have Boehner call you to say - "That's not a good night. Change the date." Which you did. To tonight. Ok. Let's do it on the 8th. That's it. I've made my decision. No changes. Except someone must have told you that it's the first game of the NFL season, with Green Bay playing (you know, the Super Bowl Champs who waited forever to see you at the White House? Maybe you don't remember - they said you spent barely 5 mins with them). So now a professional sporting event is pushing you around. Why didn't you do the speech on Tuesday, the day after Labor Day? Or better yet, months ago?

    Bowing

    I know this is really old, but it's still a thorn in my side. When you took the oath of the office, did someone forget to tell you that you are the President of the United States of America? You bow to no one. And if you are bowing because it is their form of greeting (which those countries are not or should not expect you to), your protocol people should inform you of the correct way to do so. Take Japan for instance. The Japanese have been westernized enough to accept the handshake as an official greeting. But since you decided yp bow, I'm sure you embarrassed the Emperor, especially since you bowed so LOW. If you bow lower than the Emperor, it means you are a subject, or beneath him. You are a world leader, for goodness sakes! Therefore, if you are going to bow to him, you watch him as you bow and you both bow at equal levels. I'm not sure how the Saudi's do it, but I sure as heck didn't see him bowing to you.




Final Thoughts

Maybe you need to have someone send you some cowboy boots, Mr. President, because as they say, you need to "Cowboy Up." You are still in office until Jan 2013, unless you get elected for a second term, and I really don't want other countries thinking they can push us around.
