The author completely lost my unbiased interest in their eloquent writing skills, with the following comments:

"Barack Obama’s political power shrank as he spoke, doubly so as he compounded the offense. Obama is a small man, as deeply shallow as Paris Hilton. But unlike the Euro pop-tart, Obama is shrinking in influence and stature at an accelerating rate."

As Obama shrinks, so does his ability to affect events both domestically and internationally. His agenda -- especially health care nationalization and “cap and tax” -- is in real trouble. And so are our nation and our allies abroad.

This statement is very ironic:

"As Obama shrinks, so does his ability to affect events both domestically and internationally"

Obama, who I did not vote for, has nowhere near lost his credibility
Domestically or Internationally. This basis of evaluation concerning Obama, puts some serious perspective in regard to our commander in chief that ruled for 8 years, who I did vote for.

The author becomes irrational and emotional, thus taking away greatly from their prospective analysis and writing.

Additionally, the author should have used spelling and grammar check:

"And so are our nation and our allies abroad."

Had the author not made these comments, I would have received the commentary well and pondered the writings.

I certainly think he has lost all credibility and wonder about his ego because I can never remember a President who so craves the attention and not a day goes by when I do not see him on TV. Countries abroad who do not like us love him as he just speaks badly about us and country such as Israel who used to like us do not think much of him so I believe him to be a problem.

I don't think lawyers are exactly objective in their comments about him as they are in the bag for Obama.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
