If you want the job then go to your office and take your responsibilities seriously. The current occupant of the Oval Office, placed there by a hoodwinked, gullible electorate, has and is demonstrating either his complete ignorance of the position’s job specifications or is right on track with his Marxist, progressive ideology of bringing down this Nation as a world leader.
With all of the world’s problems; including financial crisis and the threat of Islamic terrorism, our President seems to be content with having a good time at the taxpayer’s expense.
As of 6/14/12, our “Leader” has played golf a Presidential record of 100+ times. This is equivalent to four months of work. On May 11, 2011 Obama had to curtail his game to nine holes so that he could return to the White House and be briefed on the Navy Seal’s successful mission that caused Osama Bin Laden to assume room temperature.
In 2011 Obama held campaign fundraisers every five days; this year he has attended over 75 such events.
Family vacations are also a top priority for the President; 16 so far. Every hard working individual is entitled to time off; however this guy takes time off from time off. Presidential junkets are part of the norm for any Chief Executive and many such trips actually may be part of governing the nation. Apparently Ohio needs lots of governing, since the President visited that state 25 times.
The President traveled to 32 foreign countries (48 trips) stating that he would restore their respect and friendship for the United States that had been lost by his predecessor (it was all Bush’s fault). Of course he did not have time to visit Israel, our only ally in the mid-east. Many of those foreign visits included speeches which have now been labeled, correctly, as Obama’s apology tours.
On the home front, Obama’s massive stimulus spending has resulted in little or no job creation. Touting “green jobs” as the way of the future, most of the “green” companies receiving stimulus funds have gone belly-up. There were several “winners” from the stimulus packages; salaries for Obama supporters and Obama campaign funds.
Remember the outcry during the Bush administration when gasoline prices almost reached two dollars per gallon; Bush and Cheney were in bed with “Big oil” and should be tarred and feathered? Who is in bed with big oil now? Obama called President Bush’s billion dollar deficits unpatriotic. If those deficits were unpatriotic, then should Obama’s five trillion dollar addition to the national debt warrant a charge of treason?
Isn’t it amazing that right before the Presidential election the unemployment rate drops below eight percent. If you do not count the individuals who have ceased looking for work as unemployed, then you just tell the people that they are not unemployed. Remember figures don’t lie; liars figure.
Prior to all elections there are a certain number of “undecided” voters. How can anyone who has endured almost four years of the Obama economy, the Obama Justice Department’s racist behavior, the trashing of our Constitution and the blatant disregard of States Rights be undecided?
