Obama presidency a failure in every way to the Right

...to live up to every far rightwing fringe paranoid fantasy.
Admit it, fringe conservatives, you wanted Obama and America to fail. Your delusional conspiracy theories over the last 3 years have been absurd - everything from calling him a radical Christian morphing to a secret Muslim, from being a fascist who was secretly a socialist, from being a Kenyen, who coincidentally offered proof of his American birth the day he had Bin Laden killed.
Admit it. Just like the weirdos claimed, you really wanted Obama to confiscate all guns (more guns now than ever - fail! ) destroy capitalism ( rising stock market highest in years - fail! ), you wanted him to raise taxes to record highs (they are lower - fail! Web Link ), and you thought his Detroit bailout would guarantee the destruction of the American auto industry (saves 3 million jobs and saves industry - sorry Mitt - fail!).
That wasn't all... You told us Obama would surrender to terrorists (Obama gets bin Ladin - fail!), stuff conservatives into FEMA concentration camps (glen beck 2009 fantasy - fail! ), create death panels (sorry, Sarah - fail! Web Link) and impose Sharia law on all Americans (the Obama's go to church - fail! Web Link).
The right wing fringe and their conspiracy theories add up to one thing on their part - an epic fail.
President Obama inherited an economic disaster: job losses of 750,000 for consecutive months and a $1.3 trillion deficit.
We are digging out - 23 months of private sector job growth creating 3.5 million jobs Web Link , a new budget reducing $4 trillion off the deficit, surging stock markets and the highest domestic oil production in 8 years.
We have a long way to go, but we are on the right path.
