Obama was hired to improve job opportunities and the economy. It is sadly-funny that he would have been elected over Romney who was a financial whiz when Obama was merely a community organizer and an adjunct, untenured professor. Electing Obama is equivalent to choosing a lawyer from ACORN instead of Warren Buffett to head up Berkshire Hathaway. He didn’t have the experience then; he doesn’t have the flexibility of compromise now.
Just look at the Government shut down. Democrats want to blame it on Republican Bureaucrats and The Tea Party. That would be like blaming Russia’s previous poverty and the Cold War on clerks in Siberia rather than Stalin.
Since Obama’s being elected twice, our financial institutions have been downgraded, real unemployment is peaking and his latest job demoralizer—ObamaCare—is causing the loss of full-time jobs and healthcare at places like UVA, Walgreens, Trader Joe’s, Wegmans, UPS etc.
The thing that amazes me is how anybody with a conscience could defend Obamacare’s administration which has raised the debt from ten trillion dollars to seventeen trillion dollars. Obamacare is about to throw us into another couple of trillion dollars in debt. If Obama were the CEO of a company he would have been fired a long time ago. If he made speeches defending his business performance, the Board of Directors would have thrown up in paper cups.
Obama once called Bush immoral for increasing the debt from five trillion to ten trillion dollars. Yet he has done worse yet still considers himself the great hope of the middle class. The middle class is earning less during his administration and he is choking them. His own race, African-Americans, are doing the worst of all. Yet he flatters his victims and pretends that he is a savior rather than a deterrent.
Are people so race conscious that Obama gets a pass from all his financial devastation just because he is black? The whites have found a subterranean racist way to undercut Martin Luther King, Jr. who wanted his children not to be “judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” Instead liberals elect a person because of the color of his skin. Reverse prejudice is prejudice nevertheless.
I am sickened when talking heads like Bob Beckel and Krirsten Powers go on the O’Reilly Show and defend Obama’s fiscal malfeasance. It is unconscionable and immoral. O’Reilly should know better than to argue with ridiculous, slanted positions. It’s a waste of time. Having these Democrat ideologues on his show does not create a fair dialogue but makes the show into a joke. A masochistic joke. Not so funny. Ridiculous.
Obama will never admit that he is wrong and correct his mistakes. Our children will be paying for Obama’s giant ego for years. Liberals and Democrats have themselves to blame. They wave flags of empathy like they care about everybody yet they inadvertently prepare the way for the sad failure of their children. They are haters masked as charitable, loving people. Their leader, Obama, is a good speaker when aided by a teleprompter. His deeds are dust in the wind. Unfortunately, the dust makes us blink.
