In the business world you have periodic performance reviews. You get evaluated against specific goals. You might question the accuracy of the numbers or try to defend a poor performace by citing environmental events that impacted your ability to reach goals, but in most companies you will be told those events effected everyone and will not be acceptable excused for poor performance.

Here are the Obama numbers.

So, tell me again, what is it about Obama that makes him so brilliant and impressive?  Can’t think of anything?  Don’t worry.  He’s done all this in 24 months – so you’ll have one year and ten months to come up with an answer.  

Every statement in this email is factual and directly attributable to Barrack Hussein Obama.  Every bumble is a matter of record and completely verifiable.



In the business world, here is how that review would go. Mr. Obama you have failed in every key area of performance. We hired you largely based on your communications skills, since we had no real experience measures to justify your employment. While those communications skills are very strong, we need performance to justify your continued employment.

You have six months to correct these performance deficiencies. Failure to do so will result in your termination. This decision has been reviewed with both legal and human resources and they have deemed this a major performance failure justifying this warning letter and further disciplinary actions if improvements aren’t made.
