Obama’s Shop of Horrors

President Obama has failed worse than Carter. 

By From the March 2014 issue

Oh lucky, lucky you! You thought when you subscribed to The American Spectator or picked it up defiantly on the newsstand that you were getting merely the omnium gatherum of all the intellectual vibrancy of Western civilization with a few amusing insights thrown in. You never thought you were getting something more, a compendium of High Art. Yet here on the cover of perhaps the last word in quality magazines you find that you have purchased the official White House portrait of our 44th president, Barack Hussein Obama, BA, LLD, and, of course, Nobel Prize laureate. Well congratulations! We send the failed president’s portrait on to you as an added manifestation of how much we admire you for your intellectual independence and for paying what are increasingly becoming inordinately high taxes.
