This president has the reverse Midas touch. Everything he touches turns to horse manure.

His continuing sagging economy defies the normal business cycle of recovery after a recession. He has single-handedly ruined health care. President Barack Obama has turned the Constitution upside-down with his use of unlawful executive orders. His scandals have not been seen since the Richard Nixon era. Now the final piece of his crappy presidency is before us.

Foreign policy is a disaster. Obama has dissed allies (Israel, Great Britain) while appeasing villains (Iran, radicals in Egypt).

Russia is the latest debacle. He capitulated to Russian interests by stabbing Poland in the back by canceling our missile defense agreement. He mocked Mitt Romney, who warned of future Russian aggression. Now while Russia runs over the Ukraine there is nothing left of a presidency stuck in a clogged toilet.
