202. Once is happenstance..."eleventy seven" times goes way beyond conspiracy.
The "kindest" explanation for Obama's behaviour since his inauguration is that someone demonstrated the ability and the will to go after his kids.

Almost ANYTHING else demands active, willful and knowledgable cooperation on his part.

I can understand a man throwing an entire nation/the world to the dogs to save his kids. (I still think it's contemptible, but I can understand it. (And yes like many I would probably behave the same way in similar circumstance.)) However, if it were done for nothing more than political gain, there are no words permissible here to express my thoughts on such an individual, when he secures that position by fulfilling the letter of promises by absolutely violating the spirit of those promises.

Obama did not save the US/world ecconomy: The policies enacted under him have delayed the inevitable collapes and ensured that when it finally comes, the outcome will be an even greater consolidation of wealth into the hands of the few.

Obama did not give you healthcare reform: He delivered yet another scheme to move money from the pockets of the less well off into the pockets of the wealthy. One which guarantees to those wealthy "persons" (corporate included) profit off the misfortune of others, by allowing them to continue to deny coverage above and below certain pricepoints and to place the greatest burden on those least able to bear it.

Obama has not put an end to extrajudicial processes. At every turn, he/his administration has fought rulings to curb those processes AND allowed those processes to expand unchecked in a multitude of circumstances. (Full body scan OR enhanced patdown being simply a more egregious recent example.)

Given a multitude of opportunities to address matters of manifestly unfair discrimination, he/his administration and, with very few exceptions, The Party of The People, have sided foursquare with the discriminators AGAINST the victims.

Given the opportunity to simply do nothing and allow a fair outcome, he/his administration has chosen to persue a path of active opposition.

And when faced with high level criminal activity (corporate and political) he and his administration have both refused to prosecute and colaborated in the active obfuscation of evidence.
