Obama’s first 100 days, first 100 mistakes (Update)

Today is officially the 100th day of Obama’s presidency and we’ve come a long way in terms of revealing just how inept Obama may be at actually leading.

The New York Post put together a collection of the first 100 days and the first 100 mistakes of the Obama presidency.

For you Obama voters and supporters, try to premise each one of these items with “what if Bush did it” and then ask yourself how outraged you’d be if Bush did even half of these things.

I have picked a few of the worst, most egregious errors and broken promises to post below with a little commentary following each item:

1. “Obama criticized pork barrel spending in the form of ‘earmarks,’ urging changes in the way that Congress adopts the spending proposals. Then he signed a spending bill that contains nearly 9,000 of them, some that members of his own staff shoved in last year when they were still members of Congress. ‘Let there be no doubt, this piece of legislation must mark an end to the old way of doing business, and the beginning of a new era of responsibility and accountability,’ Obama said.” — McClatchy, 3/11

That was one of the worst. Obama did promise to curb spending and cut earmarks yet he did the complete opposite. It was a joke and it shredded Obama’s credibility with regard to keeping any campaign promises he made about government responsibility, transparency and wasteful spending.

2. “There is no doubt that we’ve been living beyond our means and we’re going to have to make some adjustments.” — Obama during the campaign.

Yet the first thing Obama does is increase this living beyond our means tenfold.

3. This year’s budget deficit: $1.5 trillion.

Yet again, that’s way over double anything Bush ever did. Democrats can no longer mention Bush and spending without mentioning Obama’s obscene spending which makes Bush look fiscally responsible.

4. Asks his Cabinet to cut costs in their departments by $100 million — a whopping .0027%!

This was a joke. Then the next day he announced billions in aid for the IMF. $100 million is hardly a sacrifice in a trillion dollar budget, it’s like a $1.50 from your home budget.

13. Nicaragua’s Daniel Ortega went on a 50-minute anti-American rant, calling Obama “president of an empire.” Obama didn’t leave the room. “I thought it was 50 minutes long. That’s what I thought,” he said.

Why doesn’t Obama defend America? Why does he sit in rooms and let dictators run down his country? Why does he take it from people who deny their own citizens basic rights? Obama needs to stand up for American’s freedoms once and a while.

15. “For months, the Obama administration and members of Congress have known that insurance giant AIG was getting ready to pay huge bonuses while living off government bailouts. It wasn’t until the money was flowing and news was trickling out to the public that official Washington rose up in anger and vowed to yank the money back.” — Associated Press, 3/18

Contrived outrage over what they already knew. They were trying to cover it up since they made sure the bonuses still existed.

16. “After pushing Congress for weeks to hurry up and pass the massive $787 billion stimulus bill, President Obama promptly took off for a three-day holiday getaway.” — New York Post, 2/15

The “hurry up and go nowhere” argument. Once again, Obama lost credibility.

24. Rasmussen finds 58% of Americans believe the Obama administration’s release of CIA memos endangers the national security of the United States.

Obama seems intent on making America less safe despite the implications. If another terror attack occurs during his presidency, it is squarely his fault.

30. Timothy Geithner nomination as Secretary of Treasury was almost torpedoed when it was discovered he had failed to pay $34,000 in Social Security and Medicare taxes. He also employed an illegal immigrant as a housekeeper. He was confirmed anyway.

Geitghner is a disgrace and a joke yet Obama defended him. Shouldn’t the guy in charge of collecting your taxes be decent enough to pay his own? Such a lack of integrity and once again, an erosion of Obama’s credibility.

36. “We have begun to modernize 75% of all federal building space, which has the potential to reduce long-term energy costs by billions of dollars on behalf of taxpayers. We are providing grants to states to help weatherize hundreds of thousands of homes, which will save the families that benefit about $350 each year. That’s like a $350 tax cut.” — Obama, describing something that doesn’t cut taxes.

Obama is very good at saying he’s cutting taxes while he does the exact opposite. He and Biden are very good at trying to convince people the government is “helping” them when in reality the government is wasting taxpayer money.

46. Obama asked Congress for an extra $83.4 billion to fund operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, a special funding measure of the kind he opposed while in the senate. As a candidate, Obama promised to cut the cost of military operations.

Obama railed against spending on the Iraq War during his senate term yet, of course, as President he supports the funding so he doesn’t look like he’s retreating and abandoning the soldiers. I’m glad he didn’t stick to his principles on this.

58. “Chicago has yet to recoup the $1.74 million cost of President Obama’s victory celebration in Grant Park — despite a burgeoning $50.5 million budget shortfall that threatens more layoffs and union concessions.” — Chicago Sun-Times, 2/20

Obama has shown nothing but arrogance in his spending while Americans tighten their belts.

72. On Earth Day, Obama took two flights on Air Force One and four on Marine One to get to Iowa, burning more than 9,000 gallons of fuel.

The standard “do as I say” argument instead we get from all arrogant politicians. We should drive our SUVs less but Obama can take Air Force One to speak about global warming. Plus, he can send Air Force One to New York for a photo op, pathetic.

78. Adolfo Carrion was confirmed as Director of White House Office of Urban Affairs, but is serving under a cloud after allegations that he accepted thousands of dollars in cash from developers whose projects he approved.

Obama’s cabinet is riddled with scandal. If this was Bush’s cabinet, they’d be crucifying him as incompetent and unfit to serve by now.

85. Joe Biden: “You all worked for change. You wanted to see change. Well, that wasn’t a hard thing to try to communicate to the American people. Obviously, obviously, we needed a change almost no matter who was running.”

Joe Biden has been one big embarrassment. Here is is admitting that the American people were used as tools by empty promises of hope and change.

91. The $49 million inauguration — triple what taxpayers spent at Bush’s first inauguration.

92. Giving the Queen of England an iPod full of his own speeches.

93. Three prime-time briefings in his first 100 days, eating into television revenues and this Wednesday pre-empting “American Idol.”

Numbers 91, 92 and 93 again illustrate Obama’s arrogance. We as Americans should cut our budgets but Obama is so full of himself. He’s also so arrogant to think that the Queen wants to watch his speeches and the American people want to keep watching him skate around the issues on TV.

98. “Education Secretary Arne Duncan has decided not to admit any new students to the D.C. voucher program, which allows low-income children to attend private schools … For all the talk about putting children first, it’s clear that the special interests that have long opposed vouchers are getting their way.” — Washington Post, 4/11

99. Obama enrolled his daughters in a DC private school.

Numbers 98 and 99 illustrate how Obama is not interested in programs which get results if they don’t line up with his ideological leanings. The DC voucher program was an overwhelming success yet he cut the program because he’s beholden to teacher’s unions. Of course, he puts his own kids in private school yet denies the residents of DC the same option, hypocrisy doesn’t even begin to describe it.

So there you go. You can read each and every one of the 100 items here.

The floor is open for discussion.

Update

More analysis of the first 100 days and beyond from Le·gal In·sur·rec·tion:

What history shows us is that a liberal, blame-America-first Democratic President, urged on by a liberal, blame-America-first Democratic Congress, is a prescription for political self-destruction. Leave Democrats to their own devices, and they will screw themselves politically, just when they are at the height of power.

We already see this phenomenon in action:

As to national security, Congressional Democrats are pushing for hearings and prosecutions of the authors of memos interpreting the federal anti-torture statute. These hearings will cause enormous damage to the country, reminiscent of the damage caused to intelligence agencies by the Church commission in the 1970s. We don’t know when the risks to which we are exposed turn into an attack, but it will happen because, as the 9/11 commission noted, al-Qaeda is at war with us, regardless of whether we are at war with it.

As to foreign affairs, China, Venezuela and Iran will rise in power and influence as Democrats fulfill their dream of returning the United States to its isolationist roots. The result will be that hundreds of millions of people who yearn to live in free societies will have to defer that hope for another generation or two.

As to the national debt, in a year or two the nation will wake up to the fact that Democrats have mortgaged our future to the hilt, beyond what anyone could have comprehended a year ago. When the younger generations, currently smitten with the cool President, realize that they will pay this bill, there will be a backlash. And when they see mortgage rates and inflation put the good life out of their reach, the younger generation will embrace Reaganism as the cure for the Democratic disease.

As to human rights, in the quest for revenge against the Bush administration under the guise of obtaining justice for three high-level al-Qaeda operatives who were waterboarded, we will ensure that al-Qaeda lives on to spread true torture throughout the world. The human rights and Democratic interest groups who are silent when al-Qaeda uses teenagers or pregnant women to blow up other teenagers and pregnant women are relegating tens of thousands of people to al-Qaeda terror, without so much as a second thought. For that, we will not earn the friendship the Democrats desire, but an ignoble page in history, along with Neville Chamberlain.

As to government control of private industry, government control will see the final death of the American automobile industry. Those who fret that the federal government is converting its loans to voting equity on a preferential basis are missing the big picture. Government running the auto industry will be the end of the auto industry.

As to health care, Americans will realize that nationalized health care will be no more successful than in Canada or Britain. Americans who are upset by waiting a couple of hours in a doctor’s office will go berserk over waiting weeks or months for surgical procedures. And that fury will be more pronounced than in Canada or Britain, because we will have no traditional American health care system to fall back on.

As to freedom of speech, the continued and obsessive use of the race card by Democrats and Hollywood elites will cause a simmering resentment which will boil over into retribution in the voting booth. The use of false accusations of racism as a political weapon to silence debate is the least understood, and by far the most corrosive, result of the 2008 election cycle.

So I’m not depressed about the long-term future of the country, although the next few years will be tough politically. The Democrats will screw up big time, as they did during the Carter years, and the damage they cause will be generational. But the clean-up is worth looking forward to, even if the mess is not.

    PRIMETIME ON DAY 100

    http://www.startribune.com/politics/43925987.html?elr=KArks8c7PaP3E77K_3c::D3aDhUMEaPc:E7_ec7PaP3iUiD3aPc:_Yyc:aULPQL7PQLanchO7DiUr

    The president will mark the milestone with yet another primetime presser in the East Room at 8 pm ET Wednesday.

    Can’t wait to hear it. First 100 days of taking us in a new direction.

  • Yeah baby, broken promises and out-of-control spending! Whoo-hoo!

    Amen to that new direction of responsible government, transparent dealings and good stewardship of taxpayer dollars.

    Oh wait, we’re heading down the same road of bigger government, less accountability, more scandals, higher taxes, more government interference and the most arrogance ever seen in congress and the White House. Note the difference between the President’s deceitful estimates and the non-partisan CBO’s actual estimates of the budget.

    Good times…

    I can see JD running around the room covering his eyes and ears concerning the incompetence of the Obama administration yelling “I CAN’T HEAR YOU!?!?!” to avoid confronting intellectual honesty.

    The old “If I don’t acknowledge, it’s not really happening” approach wears thin after a while but it’s funny to see you continue using it.

  • Bill Hedges

    Jd said_”Under normal circumstances cutting off one’s arm does not make a lot of sense, however, when you are trapped on top of a mountain with your hand caught between two rocks… do you wait to starve to death or cut off your arm and get to safty”

    This is JD talking about us strict Conservatives. We would just die.

    Yes, us Conservative have no common sense. Not like JD..Jd forgets only reason Clinton had balanced budget was Newt and Republican controlled Congress. Good ole Bill fought it.

    And that dirty dog Ronald. A cuss word among Liberals, didn’t need $10 trillion debt for his recession. Gave us tax breaks leading to longest Bull Market. He knew real growth is private not government. Resulting in more not less tax income for government.

    I am waiting with baited breathe to hear HIM lie again . I hope his “PROMPTERS ALL WORK”. Then again, it is entertaining. Too bad his actions are killing us. If it wasn’t I could enjoy the POP STAR performance tonight.

    Conservative are realistic JD. If only choice to live is cut off my arm, then off it goes. You are the other hand, would not cut off. Come hell or high water you back Obama.

  • JD

    Bill,

    Need I remind you that this is an anti-Obama website. You all complain about me not ever agreeing with you(which I do every so often) but I have not read a single article on here that says anything positive about the administration since the day he was elected.

    I mean give me a break. You can find nothing? Please.

    It has turned into a joke really but I like jokes so it works with me.

  • JD,

    I guess the same kind of joke how you can never criticize Obama, ever. Thou shall not slander The One.

    Here’s one thing Obama did good: He didn’t get in the way of the marines during the pirate hostage situation. Another good thing, he backed away from forcing veterans to pay out of pocket for their care.

    Otherwise I disagree with his philosophies and policies so why do I have to go out of my way to praise him? I want his socialism to fail so America, and everyone in it, can succeed. If Obama becomes a free market capitalist overnight, I’ll want him to succeed.

    Simple enough?

    Now it’s your turn to criticize the man you blindly follow at all costs to personal dignity and credibility.

  • JD

    Nate,

    My statement was that you have not written one “ARTICLE” that brought up the points you just made but I am glad you just made them.

    You made a big step, Nate, and for that I will now state two things I disagree with Obama on.

    First, I don’t like the amount of money Obama is looking to spend on middle east conflicts.

    Second, I didn’t like how much he played up how bad the economy was to begin with (even though i think it is a big deal). I think he used it to help get policies passed that didn’t require the use of fear tactics.

  • Path

    Nate, do you disagree with his refocus in afghanistan? You know, the war we forgot about to go to Iraq instead?

    Bill, you can’t compare the recesion in the 80’s with this one. If Ronie had more revenue why did the debt increase? He was still a spender, he just spent in the military instead. http://zfacts.com/p/318.html

    I do agree that obama’s decision to do away with the school voucher system was a bad idea but I would have to wait and see what the entire package will be. I don’t have much faith in congress.

  • “Second, I didn’t like how much he played up how bad the economy was to begin with (even though i think it is a big deal). I think he used it to help get policies passed that didn’t require the use of fear tactics.”

    I am shocked and delighted.

    However, I stated something very similar to that numerous times yet you shot me down. I said time and time again he is tanking the markets and trashing investors to push through his spending but you didn’t agree at that time.

    Path,

    I agree that Iraq and Afghanistan must be won. However, that being said, it will remain to be seen what Obama’s actual strategy will be other than talk of redeploying troops from Iraq to Afghanistan. How will he want to fight the battle? Will he fight it politically, like Bush has, or let the military do it’s job? I fear the former including more “surgical strikes” and political wrangling while the soldiers do the best they can on the ground.

  • JD

    Nate,

    That is where I disagree with you. I didn’t say that he Tanked markets and Trashed Investors. But I do agree that he used fear tactics to help push through his policies…not that I disagree with his policies he is pushing through. I just don’t like the use of fear.

    Again, Obama didn’t tank or trash the economy. There are many rain drops that are responsible for that flood.

  • Path

    Afghanistan has never to my knowledge had a centralized government. I don’t think the one know has much control outside the capital. I think making peace with PARTS of the taliban is needed. Most of the people that fight for them are just doing it for a pay check. Afghanistan’s main export is rocks. Not many jobs. I don’t think any war is won without some political action. It sounds corney but we need to win the hearts and minds of the people first.

    Here is Obama that may answer some of what has been said here

    Considering what has occurred, It is sad listening to Obama

  • Bill Hedges

    JD

    Your 1237pm statement while not personal, fringes on insult. I believe I don’t insult liberals. I do disagree and give my reasons. I have gotten angry with individuals, crossing political lines.

    I have never understood the importants you place on the articles. I ignore the subject most of the time and write what interest me. You can write a comment equal to articles. On any subject at any time.

    I wrote a long comment discussing Reagan that Path might find his answers or at least my view. I wish I could find to give to him. I thought it was equal to many articles I have seen here. Of course that is just me talking.

    I appreciate you mentioning Obamas problems as you see it. We should not blindly follow our party or elected officials. I have talked of Bush faults & I really like him.

    Path say…”Bill, you can’t compare the recession in the 80’s with this one. If Ronie had more revenue why did the debt increase? He was still a spender, he just spent in the military instead. ”

    Reagan had a bad recession. In the range of what we have now. He had debt, no comparison to Obama.

    It is not a simple answer to what you ask. And to do a proper job. I may try to find my comment that should explain. I spent a lot of time on it and don’t wish to re-write.

  • Path

    Frontline has a good program on how bad it got September.
    http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/meltdown/view/
    Its way too complicated to explain quickly like this on the internet.But the depth of this disaster goes farther than most think. I think it was one of the few good things the Bush administration reconized. It was know where near perfect but better than not doing anything at all. Otherwise we would of been seeing at lest 25% unemployment numbers all over the country.

    “Obama Is Seen Inheriting Worst U.S. Recession Since Reagan Era”

    By Bob Willis

    Nov. 8 (Bloomberg) — “President-elect Barack Obama will inherit the worst recession since Ronald Reagan’s second year in the White House, economists said as figures showed U.S. payrolls plunged by more than half a million the past two months.”

    http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601087&refer=home&sid=aTP1DuSuMY38

    Military spending, going to happen. You don’t like__Kool.
    …..
    “I do agree that obama’s decision to do away with the school voucher system was a bad idea but I would have to wait and see what the entire package will be. I don’t have much faith in congress.”

    Since “in wait”, you should not complain about education. He will fix ????? Sure. Reason for ending Capitalist system in D.C. is not reason we gave. Of course not. Obama has better idea. These great plans are “in wait”. By the way, what are they. Oh, they yeah,they are “in wait”..Kool. This plan in D.C. was somebody else plan and did not work ? This mystery plan is better..Kool-ade.

    I wish I gave to Obama and Democrat campaign like Teacher’s unions. Or Car unions..Build a better America…

    Now that you admit Bush warned of sub-prime accept that this economy problem would not have occured/or to this degree had action been taken. Don’t blame Bush & McCain for this condition. If fact, give them credit.

    “they had a majority in 2005. Why didn’t they do anything about it?”

    Maybe JD can explain to you..
    …..
    Our great humanitarian President Bush should be praised for the medicine being given out now.

    I did not watch Obama last night. I understand it was ..enchanting…soothsayer may be next..

  • Path

    You linked to an article from almost 6 months ago. A lot has happened since. The IMF is reporting its the worst since the depression. Try to keep up please.

    “Military spending, going to happen. You don’t like__Kool.”
    lol wut? I want smart spending. not usless crap the military doesn’t need.

    I’m waiting because I can’t coment on what I don’t know. Remeber the president doesn’t make laws congress does. Obama has proposed better teacher pay linked to performance, he wants more teachers that have actual experience in the field they teach, Charter schools. All sound good but no where near what congress will write.

    I didn’t hear about the voucher thing until you brought it up so i went looking around. All I can find is this from cbs news http://www.cbsnews.com/blogs/2009/03/11/politics/politicalhotsheet/entry4860043.shtml
    It sounds like you weren’t being 100% truthfull unless you can find some other source.

    “Now that you admit Bush warned…”

    When did I say that? Of course IF action would of taken place sooner it wouldn’t be as bad. What steps did Bush or McCain do to fix this before sept.08? Just send letters back and forth? How can you put all the blame on the minority party? Both parties dropped the ball on this one. But to say that the Republicans, who had control of both chambers of congress and president for 6 years, couldn’t stop this from happening? That Frank was running the show the entire time. It makes you sound like a bunch of pussies and thats comparing you to an admitted fag.

    “I did not watch Obama last night.”

  • “Nate, do you disagree with his refocus in Afghanistan? You know, the war we forgot about to go to Iraq instead?”

    Path, when you get out there in the field fighting for Americas freedom, remember that people like my husband Nate and I are the ones who are sending you packages, writing letters and tracking down soldiers who do not have family to write to them. We haven’t forget about our soldiers in the field and I guarantee that people like Nate and I will take better care of you while your in the field then Obama. We haven’t forgotten about Afghanistan, as matter of fact it haunts us daily. Nate and I lost a family member to a road side bomb, we watch as his wife and new born son struggle to pick up the pieces. So NO, we haven’t forgotten and never will. I give more effort then you know to make sure that our soldiers needs are meet. There is not a profession thAT I respect more then serving this country. It’s too bad that your President can’t cut his spending so that we can pay our men and women in the arm services what they deserve to be paid. But then again it’s hard to get a pansey ass like Obama who didn’t serve, to understand.

    Oh and Path, ““It makes you sound like a bunch of pussies and thats comparing you to an admitted fag”, I hope you didn’t say that. Didn’t you just get done lecturing on treating gays fairly? Well you calling someone a fag is very hypocritical. Your not for gay rights if you call someone a fag.

  • JD

    CG, I sent and send packages to my friends who are currently serving. I also did it through out the war and I was against the war from the begining.

    Lets not get into the “I’m more holier than thou” thing. Path didn’t say you don’t support troops and I too am tired of having the troops thrown in the middle. I mean, one of my friends had to have reconstructive face surgery because of his woods.

    Troops go to war when they are told to go to war…no matter if it is a just war or not. This is true with history of all military…German, French, English, US, Russian.

    I am sorry for your loss, CG, and I too know what it is like to have family and extended family serve the military…hell, my relatives have record of fighting and dying for American independence, civil war, vietnam, both Wold Wars and so on.

    Lets not take it personal. No one is saying you don’t love the troops.

  • “I mean, one of my friends had to have reconstructive face surgery because of his woods.”

    JD, Obama through them in the middle when he considered cutting their health care benefits, keep that in perspective.

    Your friend would have been paying for his own reconstructive surgery if it weren’t for the backlash against the Obama administration.

    Furthermore, the Obama administration is spending more money that you can imagine in every single area except defense, where they have found cuts.

    What does that say about their priorities? Wasteful spending is fine so long as it is isn’t about increasing military pay or defending America according to Obama.

  • Bill Hedges

    JD

    I’ve read CG comment several times. Why did you say__”Lets not get into the “I’m more holier than thou” thing”

  • JD

    Actually Nate, the problem my friend had has nothing to do with Obama… you see the Military doctors botched up the first surgery and his face re-collapsed. It wasn’t until he got help from doctors outside of the military that the surgery took.

  • Path

    “After repeated insults..Go **** yourelf”
    hit to close to home? lol

    I forgot to post the link earlier my bad. Heres one: http://www.newsmax.com/newsfront/us_world_economy/2009/04/22/206149.html

    CG,
    “calling someone a fag is very hypocritical.”
    Is Barney Frank not gay?

    “spending more money that you can imagine in every single area except defense”

    16.9% of our budget goes to defence. And that doesn’t even included the two wars we’re fighting. For some reason Bush liked to keep that out of the budget. Its the biggest slice of pie besides medicare/medicaid and social security.

    When I talk about military cuts I’m talking about what the military actually needs. The military says it doesn’t need any new subs or something but congress gives it to them anyways because it puts people to work in their district. The use military spending for votes. No one is talking about cutting pay for soldiers or taking away anything they need

  • JD, of course you miss the point completely. I was not acting as though I was holy then thou, that was just a stupid thing for you to say, but your a liberal, so goes it. The point was, that its the people who take care of the soldiers, always has been and always will be. It’s not the gov’t or Obama.

    Path, the reason we send packages is b/c the gov’t doesn’t supply things that the soldiers need and crave. Simple things like powered drink packets and chap stick, that’s what I meant.

  • D.D.Mao

    ACTUALLY today the 30th of April is the 100th day. Chief Justice Roberts screwed up the oath and President Obama had to re-take it the next day.

  • Path

    CG. I think you might of gotten me wrong. I support 100% what your doing. I think its great. It makes them feel like people still care.

    The defence budget does have a lot of fat that needs to be trimmed. But congress would have to take jobs and money away from their own district so it ain’t gonna happen anytime soon
