Barack Obama addressed leaders from around the world at the United Nations today in what can only be termed a lecture to the globe on the need to act definitively and urgently to provide coordinated effort to curb greenhouse gas emissions and save the world for future generations.

 In typical Obama fashion he opened his remarks by apologizing to the nations of the world  for America’s and Americans contribution to the global warming crisis and the failure of the nation to respond to the  needs of the earth until the Obama administration arrived in the White House.

Obama touted the transformational effect of the Obama Climate Doctrine on American industry through the rapid expansion of the green energy industry, the Climate Act passed by the House of Representatives and America’s committment to support for the Copenhagen Climate Conference in December. He spoke of America’s responsibility to join all the nations of the Globe in an effort to turn the tide on Global Warming.

The irony of course is that this President who relishes the spotlight, whose tools of the trade are a teleprompter and a podium is out of touch with the American public. He continues to sing the praises of his progressive agenda and his green economy while the real world in both developed and developing economies compete for the consumption of fossil fuels. Obama appears to be willing to sacrifice near term economic gratification to provide for the greater good. He has indicated a willingness to forego the benefits of an economy based on our current energy matrix to replace it with a green energy matrix of renewable energy including wind and solar platforms.

One could argue that Obama is a selfless leader motivated solely by the desire to do what he believes is right for the nation however, ceo4aday believes that this President, a product of a progressive orientation from birth is motivated by a sincere need to gratify the special interests that promoted and sponsored his ascendancy to the White House and a compelling obsession with a legacy to be not a great President but the greatest President.

This President who lectures to the nation and the world with head raised in pontifical glory seeks the lasting glory of history and is willing to sacrifice the present to attain his own selfish vision of the future.

Barack Obama, in a speech filled with patronizing platitudes to organized labor at an AFL-CIO event in Ohio, sought to protect his left flank today as union powers begin to express dissatisfaction with President Obama, who they heavily supported as candidate Obama. Obama was swept into office largely on the backs of union members as their respective unions raised hundreds of millions of dollars to aid in the election of the inexperienced junior Senator from Illinois.

With the President declining in the polls and the majority of Americans questioning his policies the pep rally in Ohio was timed to give the President a lift from one of his most ardent bases of support. The speech was fueled by pure high test Obama speak as he thanked the unions for transforming America from an industrial oligarchy to a nation that today embraces a strong middle class that exists solely due to the efforts of America’s labor movement as represented by their great unions.

On Obama’s path toward a workers paradise unions are praised, coddled and encouraged to expand their efforts to organize. Why wouldn’t they be,  given the President’s complete lack of executive experience or knowledge of real world business activity. The benefit to Barack Obama by increasing the ranks of organized labor, is that it consolidates additional power into the special interest groups that Obama is beholden to thereby assuring additional support for future Democrat campaigns.

Barack Obama is adrift in the sea of his own rhetoric. It was painful to watch the President of the United States pander to such a well defined special interest as represented by the AFL-CIO. A short while ago ceo4aday suggested that this President stop campaigning and begin governing. Obviously our plea as well as the pleas of millions of others fall on deaf ears as President Obama fails to listen to the public and hears only the rapture of his own voice as a nation waits for him to gain his footing and follow the right path.

It is ironic that on the same day that the President is pandering to the unions that he also appointed a new czar. Just one day after the resignation of the Green Jobs Czar, Van Jones, due to a variety of inappropriate comments and actions prior to joining the White House staff,  Obama has appointed Ron Bloom as the Manufacturing Czar. 

Any experienced operator in the manufacturing sector, would assure the President that America has suffered as a nation in the manufacturing sector because of  high costs that place extraordinary burdens on American manufacturers that are not shared by many other nations in the developing economies of the world. Unions in many cases are the direct cause of America’s shrinking manufacturing base as they place non competitive demands on American business.

We very much doubt that another Czar, appointed by this President with his ears in the clouds will have any substantive impact that will enhance or expand our manufacturing base. The President needs to listen to America. This nation wants to return to work to real jobs that provide or produce services or goods that create sustainable value not additional government services. This nation wants to stabilize the real estate market. This nation wants to progress along the path of sustainable free enterprise. Listen Mister President and you may hear the rumbling of a nation that wants to roar.

In what has been one of the quickest swings in Presidential popularity in the history of poll taking, President Barak Obama according to the latest Rasmussen Daily Tracking Poll is now viewed as favorable by only 47%  of likely voters. This has been one of the quickest and most extreme swings in Presidential popularity of a first year President in history.

Barack Obama who’s persona is increasingly being portrayed in the media as that of a silver tongued used car salesman must be shocked by the polling data and wonder why the wheels are coming off of the Barack the great redeemer wagon. The American electorate is clearly not responding positively to Obama’s consistent if vague message that we the government know what is best for you the American public.

The President, who has maintained a continual campaign since his inauguration has proved to be far more liberal then many voters perceived during the 2008 Presidential campaign. As a result of the President promoting the special interests of the environmental and union lobbies,  the public has moved increasingly to the center ,while the Obama administration and the liberal Democrat leadership of the Congress as portrayed by Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the House and Harry Reid, theSenate Majority Leader, have been outed for their commitment to a progressive agenda that would increase the concentration of power in the federal government while diminishing individual choices and freedoms.

Barack Obama who has been a subject of progressive doctrinaire throughout his academic and political life is a true believer in the progressive cause and has filled his administration with loyal subjects. The public, which of late has been demeaned and is always underestimated by liberal and progressive elitists that include Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid have awakened in the past few months to an America that progressing along a path never foreseen by the founding fathers. It should be of no surprise to most in the political arena that a back lash would develop against the President’s policies given that over time the majority of Americans find comfort in the center as opposed to the extremes of the left or the right.

Obama the campaigner is wearing thin on Americans tolerance who have become impatient with Obama’s failure to embrace principles of governing that contribute to the safety and security of America. They ask who is governing the nation id the President is coosistently and aggressively campaigning. The answer of course id in the swpecial interests that funded and promoted Barack Obama as a vessel of hope and change.

The hope in America today is that Congress will listen to their constituency, the American public and not allow this President to continue to guide this nation away from the founding principles and values that have been the foundation for this great nation . The hope in America today is that Congress will not enact the progressive legislation that this President is promoting but that courage and common sense will prevail and America will survive this Administration’s attempts at concentrating power and creating a progressive or socialist state.

Americans must continue to stand up and speak out for their individual rights. They must ignore the platitudes of the left and do what is right. They must take ownership of this nation and not bequeath their future to a progressive and misguided few.

According to the Rasmussen Daily tracking Poll, for the first time since Barack Obama assumed the Office of the President, more Americans that are likely voters disapprove  than currently approve of the President’s performance.

The president has been in a campaign mode since his inauguration, as he rushed a stimulus bill through Congress, that is increasingly perceived as reckless legislation, continues to promote a cap and trade tax and is attempting to burden Americans with a government controlled health care plan.

In addition, he has taken the campaign Global as he completed apology tours through out Europe, Latin America and the Middle East. Most recently he has created a political controversy by wading into the deep waters of racial politics by weighing in on the arrest of his ‘friend” Skip Gates a Harvard Professor by a Cambridge Police Sergeant. Gates decided that the officer was being racist and Obama referred to the actions by the Cambridge police as “stupidly”.

The public  have been inundated with Obama in the  media and may now be withdrawing from the Obama euphoria created by the media as they hold the President accountable for governing as opposed to campaigning. This President’s lack of experience did not serve as an editor over his ego and as such Obama launchedan aggressive progressive agenda with a blitz on Congress and the electorate not seen since the Battle of Britain. The blitz has failed and the polls are reflecting the desire by the public for the President to veeraway from his progressive agenda and his path to socialism. As has been the historical tendency in this nation Americans expect the President to move toward the center and govern accordingly.

Harry Reid, the Senate Majority Leader announced this week that the Senate would delay any action on a health care reform bill until after the August Congressional recess. The delay in Senate action has been caused by an inability to develop an acceptable compromise between liberal Democrats, willing to agree to any bill promoted by the Obama administration and moderate Democrats and Republicans who are unwilling to agree to a government take over of health care that will increase the federal deficit, lessen the quality of health care and increase the burden on American tax payers.

Delaying the process in the Senate will most likely cause a delay in the House which following the August recess may lead to the ultimate death of health care reform as elected officials hear an increasing roar from a public that has become disenchanted with the idea of placing their health care in the hands of an administration that is increasingly being perceived as being less than forthcoming with the real costs of health care reform as well as the quality of service to expect from a government mandated program.

Barack Obama is keen on stating that he is enacting the change that Americans want. He is correct that Americans voted for change when they elected him President last November but the change that this President has brought to date and the changes he continues to propose are reflective of a classic political bait and switch. President Barack Obama has failed to deliver on the promise of candidate Barack Obama. This should hardly come as a surprise given the President’s thin resume of leadership. Other than his campaign Obama had never had any management experience.

Six months into office and obama’s inexperience weighs like a wet blanket upon an economy that is struggling to heat up. His self promoted and much touted stimulus plan, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan of 2009, has proved to be the debacle that opponents of the bill had opined that it would be when the partisan bill was rushed through Congress with out being read and was subsequently signed by the President who had promoted the bill as a job savings and creation bill. The President’s pronouncements on the bill have under gone some ‘recalibration’ as the President and his administration now refer to the stimulus as having a longer term arc than would be expected with the urgent passage of a stimulus bill.

In retrospect the Obama administration will have proved to have miscalculated American’s tolerance for the political sleight of hand that is the stimulus package. The proposed take over of the Health Care industry by Obama in addition to the energy and safe climate act that narrowly passed the House is making Americans uncomfortable and testing their patience with this administration during a period of rising unemployment and a challenged economy.

The majority of the nation are expecting the President to adjust his priorities and focus on the economy rather than attempting to save the earth through the building of windmills and saddling the nation with an ill conceived health care program.

The Federal Budget deficit officially surpassed $1 Trillion today as tax revenues from corporate and personal income taxes have declined significantly from Obama administration estimates. Barack Obama, intent upon redistributing wealth in America, has established a new deficit record and is not through spending yet as he continues to expand the scope of the Federal government .

The President who has appointed 34 various czars to oversee almost every conceivable aspect of American life is leading the nation along the path toward bankruptcy at an alarming pace. Unless the Congress begins to legislate with some element of common sense and begins to reign in the progressive agenda of Barack Obama this nation will have redistributed all of its remaining wealth to the creditor nations that are currently propping up the American economy.

The policies of Barack Obama are destructive to the American way of life and if left unchecked will result in the catastrophic dissolution of our free enterprise based economy. Our $1 Trillion deficit will grow exponentially if we fail to stem Obama’s lunatic spending. It is time for the President to park Air Force One in the hangar, put the teleprompter away and learn about the nation he has been elected to govern but, chosen to destroy through the execution of his progressive policies.

Barack Obama’s honeymoon with the American electorate is continuing to erode as the public begins to digest the catastrophic spending this President has approved and continues to propose with his radical progressive policies. With a call for a second stimulus package echoing through Washington and the media, the electorate is beginning to recognize that the progressive and transformational policies Obama supports are threatening the fiscal security of the nation as well as threatening the values and principles of this Democracy.

The failure of the  $787 Billion  American Recovery Act and Reinvestment Plan of 2009,  to provide any stimulus to the economy has begun to awaken the public to the distinct possibility that Barack Obama has an agenda that is harmful to this Republic. The vaunted stimulus package that Obama campaigned on Capitol Hill for as aggressively as he campaigned for the Presidency is proving to be the entitlement spending package that Ceo4aday and others wrote about several months ago. The stimulus package isa pay off to the unions that supported Obama during his Presidential campaign and is proving to be a bureaucratic and fiscal nightmare.

Today the White House announced that the web site AmericanRecovery.gov which was created to provide transparency to the public for the spending incorporated in the stimulus package will undergo an $18 million redesign to improve the site. The President should be ashamed and at the least embarrassed by this wasteful spending.

Obama’s penchant for spending and taxing while hiding behind Global Warming and Health Care will continue to plague his Presidency. This President who was swept into office on a wave of charisma and policy camouflage will see his relationship with the American public continue to erode as the Public becomes increasingly aware of the radical agenda of America’s most inexperienced and liberal President
