    Events have caused me to wonder if Obama has been cursed. I did some research on the Internet (where everybody knows only true things are found) and found at least one hex Obama may be suffering under:

    1. Rise from your bed at midnight. Sit cross-legged on the floor in a dark, empty room and whisper the words: “Evil, live, live, evil” over and over for one minute. In your mind’s eye, picture the person you want to curse.

    2. As the image of the person appears to you, visualize great harm coming to him or her. For example, you might watch with delight as a car runs over him or he falls down a flight of stairs.
    Proof that BHO's been hit with the whammy:

    6 Times Barack Obama Backed Losers
    1. Brexit!
    2. Super Bowl 50, Broncos vs Panthers
    3. 2016 Olympic Games Bid
    4. NCAA Basketball Tournament
    5. 2018 World Cup
    6. Hillary?
    Oh, and:
    Under President Obama, Democrats have lost 900+ state legislature seats, 12 governors, 69 House seats, 13 Senate seats. That's some legacy.

    Don't deny science. Don't be a Denier.

    So do you think Obama's curse is what makes the people and issues he supports fail, or is he simply doomed to always go with the loser?

    I see your three wins for BHO, and raise you:

    GOP up 900 state legislature seats, up 12 governors, up 69 House seats, and up 13 Senate seats.

    And while he managed to have OBL killed, he's also managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory in Afghanistan and Iraq.

    Didn't see Obama's name on any of those ballots.

    There was victory in Afghanistan and Iraq? When did that happen?

    We'll talk in 2018. I've never understood the venom about Obama... Because of a republican congress, he could not accomplish a lot, but he's an ******* either way? Can't figure it out...

    Eh?!

    Democrats had total control in the House from 2009-2011. That's a lot of time to take care of business.

    "Mittens"?

    As in Mitt Romney or those fuzzy woolly things you put over your hands in the winter?

    A couple things come to mind:

    1. Please use his actual name, not this juvenile name calling

    2: Assuming these sources are correct, but not all three of them are heavily liberal-biased (one is, two are not):

    Oooh ooooh....can you do the same experiment on Sarah Palin? It seems like a lot of the people she has backed haven't panned out There may be a hex on her too with all that family drama, Todd getting hurt, losing her gig on Fox, house party gone wrong, daughter's out of wedlock pregnancies, etc. etc.

    Yes the GOP has done a far better job than the Dems in working their bench from the town councils up, and gerrymandering the hell out of congressional districts via powers of state legislatures. But now the GOP picks Trump in order to throw away their best chance at a trifecta in decades. Way to go GOP. Spiralling into the dustbin.

    As far as "jaws of victory" go, it's a day at a time thing. Obama does not operate in a vacuum abroad or here. The sectarian undercurrents in the artificial state of Iraq will probably go on for decades longer after the horrors that followed our 2003 invasiion. Life in Afghanistan was and is a preview of hell on earth. The American taxpayer makes impossible demands for protection from terrorists and yet wants to stop throwing our kin's blood and good money after bad into these hellholes. If you think Obama has not threaded those needles well, vote for a Republican and see how that flies.

    The way I look at it, shoring up a central government in Afghanistan is a perpetual task in a region where narcotraffiic, arms deals and general banditry are the time-honoredl options for making a buck. Since the place nestles amid countries with nukes, it's worth trying to keep a lid on it, training up the locals, instilling some sense of nationhood to replace the tribalism, making it a point of pride to deter terrorists from settling in. Obviously there has been and well be an ebb and flow to this. There are centuries of tribalistic history in the rear view.

    As far as the mess in Iraq goes, you know Obama didn't start it, and God only knows who can end it. Iran has a lot of the apron strings to the Shias. The situation with the Kurdish autonomous region vis a vis Turkey is a dicey diplomatic dance for us. The Sunni and Shia citizens need to understand they all have human rights, and to participate in some eventual truth and reconciliation process if the country has any prayer of remaining a multicultural nation. No American president can fix Iraq, even though we helped shatter what was a pasteup "nation" to begin with. Since we did in fact break it, we owe them more of an actual reconstruction than we initially provided, but it's hard to say how to do that. Corruption is a huge problem for the Americans and the Iraqis alike. Our presence seems an apparent ongoing or intermittent necessity even though the very suggestion of an "occupying presence" is intolerable. The bottom line for Obama or any other president is taxpayer willingness to continue an investment of blood and treasure. It's hard to find that willingness if our pattern of Congressional opposition to administration guidance continues.

    But Bill Clinton was able to. And Reagan was able to with a Democratic Congress. Because both were willing to work with the other side. Obama is not.

    He made a veiled threat against leaving and supported Cameron and the stay coalition.

    Helloooo! He supported those candidates. The Curse took them down.


    Well:

    --- Post Merged, Jun 25, 2016 ---
    Could be--hexes are non-partisan. Was that your point?

    I must say I'm gratified that you've so wholeheartedly accepted my theory.
    --- Post Merged, Jun 25, 2016 ---
    He supported keeping the EU together, and The Curse promptly killed the EU.

    Funny thing is, he clearly doesn't like the Brits, so if he had sense, he'd have gone all-in for Brexit and let The Curse do its work.

    The thread has little-nothing to do with logic or reason when speaking of superstition and witchcraft. Needless to say I'm not so sure Obama will go down in history as the Nobel Prize winning American hero many for some reason believed he would be. But who knows, probably too soon to tell.

    Nice revisionist history. It wasn't Obama who wasn't willing to work with the other side.
