The US is not respected or feared by the bad guys in the middle east since Barack took over and that is a fact. The aggression of Iran and the now other dictators such as Syria is evidence that these Islamic thugs have no fear of Barack Obama and feel like they can do what ever they want ...including mass killing of their own people ...and the US will do nothing and sadly they are correct. The US is a paper tiger feared by none especially Russia and China. It is Russia and China that are the big players now dominating and dictating events around the world. Recall the apology tour by Barack and the promise to close Gitmo so that terrorists would like us better. What a sad joke to have such a small little naive man in the White House - reminding us all of Jimmy Carter. Bottom line - liberalism doesn't work...not in economics and not in foreign policy.

Obama is built his house on a Sandy foundation. The floods keep hitting and he is slowly being wiped out.

Even his blindly loyal followers are wallowing in the mud.

Unfortunately, we all have to walk through the same mud.

Thanks guys.

Typical Deseret News bias. Even the photo has to make Pres Obama look bad. You continue to shred your credibility to anyone outside your circle of hard right-wingers.

Yes, President Obama rules the world, makes all the decisions.
Only the bad things that have happened are his fault, though. Any beneficial contribution of Barack Obama is ignored.
Kings, despots, all who are ruling other countries throughout the world(including American states), play NO part in any decision making.
When we are all sleeping each night, President Obama is making phone calls throughout the world, telling each leader of each country(plus our Legislators in America), that he is they Boss, and only he makes the decisions, no matter what they might think is best for their country, or state.

what do you expect from zero experience? 5 years on the job training times ZERO experience is still ZERO.

Can we demand a refund of his paycheck since the country ended up much worse than he took office? btw how many trillions he added to the debt?

@ sceptic:

Sorry to burst your liberal bubble about not having a local news outlet to blame this negative Obama report on. If you would check a little closer before making accusations, you would've noticed that this was an Associated Press (AP) report and picture.

It has nothing to do with the Deseret News and it's local reporting. It is a national press release.

@ no fit in SG:

You are partly right. Obama does rule the presidential golf and vacation world. He just thinks he rules the rest of the world.
And the only reason his beneficial contributions are ignored are because they are so hard to find.
And when bad things do happen in his administration, he is usually busy pleading ignorance of what was going on... trying really hard to wash his hands of all the dirty details.
And when we are all sleeping at night, he is busy making calls to (conspiring with) his cabinet as to which laws he can get away with ignoring and which ones he can get away with unilaterally changing to fit his agenda... all the while ignoring what the Constitution actually allows him to do.
And yes, that is right. Pretty much sums it up... except for maybe the totally out of control federal deficits he's created and that you forgot to mention. He busy kicking the can down the road on that one, too.

Simple, BO and his wife are planning on their next vacation in Hawaii.

..so much for the world apology tour

He should have started a couple wars by now, maybe sold arms to our enemies using money earned by selling drugs to Americans, then perhaps he too can be a conservative leader.

The short memories of radio junkies is humorous.

By the way warhawks who have never served...Iran and Syria are not part of the United States, Israel is an instigator not one of our allies.

Here is your chance.

Please list some beneficial contributions from the Obama presidency.

Mr. Worf,
President Obama's accomplishments are many, and are very easily located on the Internet.
Sadly for Republicans(your affiliation?), all that can be seen for your political party at this point in time, is an obstructionist group being led by Bible Belt religious extremists. These politicians are unable to embrace a diverse country who, historically, looks out for it's poor and middle class citizens.
Rational, moderate Republicans who are willing to work with Dems and Independent Moderates have expressed their fear in working with those who are willing to put the country first. Tea Party extremists have threatened those who would want to compromise.
This should be your concern at this point in time.

You can see where this will go. All indications are the parade is moving in favor of a Syria strike. Obama will get out in front of that, and then feel he has offended Russia. Eventually he will pull out U.S. nuclear warheads from Europe. When that happens, get your iodine supply and pray.

What Obama said: "You know....things sure are different than what I thought before I was elected."

What Obama meant: "Dang! Maybe I shouldn't have been so hard on Bush. This job is a lot tougher than what I thought...."

No fit is SG--

Worf served you up a nice soft one up in the strike zone and you whiffed!

Should be an easy question, right? "...list some beneficial contributions from the Obama presidency."

Instead, you dodge the question and proceed with the typical liberal name calling and finger pointing right out of MSNBC scripts.

Give me 30 minutes, even I could probably come up with something that Obama has done that can be construed as beneficial...., well,... OK, give me 24 hrs, ...maybe.

@no fit in SG:

Please! Don't be embarrassed.

I couldn't find one either. You can get on the internet, and look up "Obama Lies". There's plenty of data on that.

And we are surprized because....?

There is only one thing wrong with Obamas foreign policy, no Republicans over there to blame it all on.

I thought the buck stops at the President's door. If a CEO of a major corporation had the number of scandals he's had under his watch, he'd be doing jail time. We should hold our President to a higher standard whether a Republican or a Democrat and if they fail we should fire them not reelect them.
