All the issues that have come up under the Obama administration would be continued under Hillary Clinton.
The Obama administration likes to say that it is ‘pro-worker.’ But something is amiss when its labor priorities are forcing unionization and labor contracts on American workplaces, and denying union members information on how their dues money is spent.
Clinton appears to be the sole holdout in the Obama administration in understanding the catastrophe caused by its foreign policy in Libya.
An Obama administration truly looking to break with the molds of the past would stop treating Africa as an obligation and start treating it as globalization’s next great opportunity, understanding that Chinese – along with Indians and Arab sovereign wealth funds – are natural partners in this process.
Thomas P.M. Barnett

The extremist agenda of the Obama administration is forcing unwarranted higher energy costs upon Americans and further threatening an already sluggish economic recovery.
Under the Obama administration, 80-90 percent of individuals making asylum claims with children were released after being processed and given a court date. Inevitably, they started living in the U.S. illegally for years to come. This is the policy the Trump administration is trying to change.
The debt they ran up in the first year of the Obama administration is bigger than the last four years of the Bush combined.

Robert M. Gates
I think the Obama administration, whether it’s in his first term or second term, is totally committed to the search for peace between Israel and the Palestinians, and we greatly appreciate the president’s effort, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the first administration, now Secretary of State John Kerry.
The one thing that I don’t think the Obama administration gets anywhere near enough credit for is the high level of administrators. They meet all the time so they can synergize the federal investments. That’s the way any corporation would do it.
I am heartened by the appointment of Dr. Birx as the Coronavirus response coordinator for the White House. Dr. Birx is a retired Army Colonel and immunologist who was appointed the U.S. Global HIV/AIDS coordinator under the Obama Administration.

Yes, the Obama administration has and will continue to use Hollywood and the entertainment industry to push its agenda.
It seems clear to me that the Obama Administration has no human rights policy. That is, while in some inchoate sense they would like respect for human rights to grow around the world, as all Americans would, they have no actual policy to achieve that goal – and they subordinate it to all their other policy goals.
The Obama administration contends that starting a for-profit business means leaving religious liberty behind. The administration has effectively told the Supreme Court that for-profit companies have no right to act on moral convictions the government opposes. They are about profits. That position is deeply mistaken.
The United States and the Obama administration have consistently opposed the delegitimation of Israel. We’ve also consistently pushed for legitimation of Israel across the U.N. system. We uniformly oppose one-sided actions designed to punish Israel, and we will continue to do so.
I want to use my position of leadership to help move along at a faster pace what I believe and know the Obama administration wants to do around the urgency of climate change.
The Obama administration came into Utah and said, ‘We’re not going to listen to what the U.S. Supreme Court said. ‘We, the federal government, are going to recognize marriages in the state of Utah and Utah state law explicitly does not recognize as marriage,’ and that was really, in my view, an abuse of power.
Ever since taking office, the Obama administration has sought to accommodate Islamist demands that freedom of expression be curbed, lest it offend Muslims and stoke violence. For example, in 2009, the administration co-sponsored a United Nations Human Rights Council resolution along those lines.
We need to be calling out the flaws and misguided decisions of the Democrats in Congress and the Obama administration.
The administration has taken its inexcusable apathy a step further, declaring that even abiding by the few token sanctions in place isn’t truly necessary, as evidenced by the now 20 countries to which the Obama administration has granted waivers to continue doing business with Iran.
The Obama administration would say that if you are a Catholic institution, you can only limit your conscience waivers or exclusions to people of the Catholic Church. That would mean that Catholic institutions couldn’t treat people of other religions, and that makes no sense.
I think isolationism is a mistake, no matter what party you see it in. We have to remember that there are two threats to our freedom: there’s a threat that comes from the federal government, from the Obama Administration policies… but there’s also a huge and significant threat from al-Qaeda.
For months, Obama administration officials attacked Snowden’s motives and said the work of the NSA was distorted by selective leaks and misinterpretations.

For many, the recent disclosure of massive warrantless surveillance programs of all citizens by the Obama administration has brought back memories of George Orwell’s ‘1984.’ Another Orwell book seems more apt as the White House and its allies try to contain the scandal: ‘Animal Farm.’
Donald Trump is talking about the failed leadership of the Obama Administration.
The Obama administration has been weak and inconsistent in enforcing immigration laws.

It seems to me they are sending down their bullies to create fist fights among average American citizens who don’t want a government-run health care plan forced upon them.
The Obama administration has been trying out a new policy toward Syria since the day it came to office. The Bush cold shoulder was viewed as a primitive reaction, now to be replaced by sophisticated diplomacy. Outreach would substitute for isolation.
Perhaps the most striking assault on the foundations of traditional liberties is a little-known case brought to the Supreme Court by the Obama administration, Holder v. Humanitarian Law Project.
To be sure, every White House tries to limit its exposure to difficult and distracting questions. The Obama administration was scrutinized for its use of late night shows and YouTube chats to get the president’s message across in low-risk situations.
Our religious liberty was threatened by the Obama administration as part of the Obamacare law. I was in the courtroom when that law was, I think unjustly, held constitutional.
With its record spending and deficits, the Obama administration has shown little interest in taking fiscal responsibility. That is a mistake.
Cathy McMorris Rodgers
I am convinced that the Obama administration and Clinton Dynasty would rather hail the Communist Manifesto than the Declaration of Independence this Fourth of July. And there’s more than enough proof to show how they have been slow-cooking our Founders’ republic into a red-star state like China.

European-style interventions to which the Obama administration is inclined will not make America more competitive in the world-wide economy. Such policies will not increase growth, will not decrease unemployment, and will not increase wages for workers.
Those who cannot remember the past are condemned, it seems, to direct the Middle East policy of the Obama administration.
Government is, by its very nature, a destroyer of liberties; the Obama administration, specifically, is promising to interfere with the economy and the health care system so profoundly that Washington will soon have us all in chains.

It was the Obama administration that cut a faux deal with the Iranians that will not disarm Iran of its nuclear capabilities, and will in fact accelerate their nuclear development.

The examples of the Obama Administration ‘stimulating’ jobs everywhere on the planet except here in America are endless.

The Obama administration says we only destroy the privacy of non-Americans. That is not true. The government is spying on Americans.

ISIS was able to grow because the Obama administration stuck its head in the sand rather than address the emerging problem.
If the Obama administration is this afraid of Glenn Beck, how do they deal with the Iranians?
I think we need to significantly reduce the regulatory burden on the private sector. The Obama administration is doing the opposite. They’re loading on more and more regulation on the private respect to how the economy functions.
We do need to get to the bottom of what Russia did and their interference in the election. And we need to also figure out how the Obama administration failed so miserably to allow Russia to have this type of impact in our country.
The Obama administration has vastly expanded the use of armed drones and concentrated a great deal of diplomatic effort on building and maintaining alliances that share information about terrorists, provide access to get near them, and then strike against them.
