I am a political junkie, and I have become even more so since I “retired” about ten years ago. I realize that I, unlike a lot of other people, have the time to pay attention to things that others just don’t have the time for because of jobs, family, recreation, and so forth. So I figure I could share a few things that you might have missed this year. It struck me as kind of odd that Democrats have as their “super star” politician a man who was impeached for lying to Congress (and the American people) about an affair that he had while in office. The guy is also a serial sexual predator as witnessed by the fairly long line (especially for a married man) of accusers. This is a man who lied about our current President when he said that NO ONE, neither he nor any of his predecessors, could have fixed the situation that Obama found himself in at the beginning of his presidency. Really? Ronald Reagan walked into a worse situation in 1981, and he managed to turn it around within his first term. Obama and Clinton tried to say that their presidencies are the same in many aspects. No they weren’t. Clinton was forced to the political center by the Republicans, and he knew that real compromise was an essential ingredient in getting anything done in Washington D.C. (something which Obama refuses to do.)
Because Obama refuses to compromise on spending and reforming programs that are headed for disaster in the near future, America’s credit rating has been DOWNGRADED for a SECOND time on his watch! We are $16 TRILLION in debt and rising; yet all Obama keeps saying is that the rich “need to pay their fair share”. They already do, but Obama doesn’t want to acknowledge that fact. By the way, did you know that if you taxed the rich 100%, which means you took everything that they made, it would only keep the government running for about 4-5 months at the most? Since when is being successful in this country a bad thing? I always wanted my kids to be successful so that they could take care of my wife and I in our later years. Obama becomes president, and suddenly that goal becomes an evil thing? Obama talks about taking care of the “middle class”; yet he is doing everything in his power to destroy that same middle class.

Obama has wasted BILLIONS of our hard-earned tax dollars on “green energy projects” that are nowhere near ready to replace our dependence on fossil fuels, but that doesn’t seem to deter him because after all, he knows what’s best for us, and it isn’t his money anyway. Obama sent a gay man to a savagely ignorant country (Libya) without adequate protection on the anniversary of the 9/11 attack, and the media doesn’t hold him accountable for his actions. This occurred AFTER the Obama administration was warned 48 hrs in advance that something was simmering in the Middle East; yet he did NOTHING to increase security either in the United States or abroad.
After a week of the Obama administration trying to pin the blame for the riots in the Middle East on an obscure video about Islam, we all thought the Obama administration had finally admitted that it was indeed a terrorist attack that killed our Ambassador to Libya and three other Americans. Wrong! Our illustrious President goes in front of the United Nations and says that we should not insult the prophet Mohammad, that America does not endorse the video that started the unrest, and that we have a First Amendment that should be respected. This came after Iran’s evil little dwarf’of a dictator was invited to spew his anti-semitic, anti-American poison at the U.N. on Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the year for the Jews!!! Oh yeah, Obama did say that America will not allow them to get nuclear weapons. The question is, “when you hear the sound of that first nuclear bomb going off in the streets of America, will that signal Obama that it may be time to act?” I want to see the MSM cover that story up.
Obama is still planning on sending BILLIONS of our tax dollars to Egypt and Libya, even though they killed our diplomats and other Americans and trashed our embassies and consulates. Hey, even our enemies are recipients of Obama’s”redistribution of wealth’! What a deal for the world. China is rearing its ugly head in the South China sea. North Korea is stepping up its threats against South Korea and the United States. Iran continues its furry of activity to get the nuclear bomb; and while REAL adults are worrying and trying to find solutions to these problems, our President is hobnobbing with the ladies of “The View”! I wonder why a man who hates the job that he holds wants another four years. Maybe it’s for the golf and the vacations? For those of you who do vote for Obama this November, I would suggest learning Chinese, Farsi, and the Koran because you’re going to need them. Adieu.
