The headlines continue to remind us of the upside down fundamental transformation this administration is putting the United States through. We are quickly becoming the Rodney Dangerfield of the world getting no respect from anyone. Here I thought Obama was going to make everyone respect us once again after he got done apologizing. I guess it hasn’t worked out but what do you expect from a president who thinks the ports of Charleston S.C., Savannah, GA. and Jacksonville, FL. are on the gulf coast, or that swimming, track, and gymnastics are part of the winter Olympics. Without a teleprompter he is lost. To call him an idiot or moron would not be right as that would be an insult to idiots and morons. The president is just more evidence of how the American people have become dumbed down.
The president is still campaigning, selling his jobs program. What’s worse is that people show up to listen to the same guy who has promised jobs as a priority for five years and done nothing. All he can claim, other than ballooning government jobs, are part time, seasonal, entry-level jobs. In fact, what his glossed over unemployment numbers do not reveal is that good, high-wage full-time jobs are rapidly being replaced by minimum wage part-time jobs. And he calls that a recovery.
The president shows his lack of understanding while demonizing job opportunities he doesn’t like. While telling a whopper about the Keystone pipeline, he claimed only 50 jobs would result so it is not worth doing. He failed to say that building the pipeline would result in 2,000 plus jobs immediately along with multiplier industry jobs created to support building the pipeline. The pipeline actually creates more than 2,000 to 3,000 jobs for the next four years before ramping down to 50 people to maintain it. A little truth with his spin. By his logic if the end-state maintenance number determines if we should actually build something then we should never build another sky scraper, bridge or road nor should we have undertaken any shovel-ready stimulus projects. All of those jobs needed more people for construction than to maintain them. In fact, every construction job is by definition a temporary job. What about the green industry? He keeps touting those jobs but what do we have to show for the large sum of monies spent? The jobs and products created versus money spent has been a complete bust!
The president chastised George W. Bush for not talking with Iran and Iraq’s leaders during times of heightened tension, yet this week stated he refused to talk to Putin at the G-20. Chances are, with the spin and lies of this administration, what really happened was Putin was too embarrassed to be seen with our laughingstock so he cancelled.
The president talked to Marines at Camp Pendleton and made some strong statements about Al-Qaida’s cowardice for attacking civilians and that they better not mess with us. How can this be? Didn’t he tell us during and after the election that Al-Qaida was on the run, decimated, and no longer a threat? The Osama slayer now is saying that’s not what I said.
The president encourages militant Islam by not taking a tougher stance with them. He refuses to even say militant Islam; instead he hosts Muslims with ties to terror at the Whitehouse. He won’t celebrate Christian events at the Whitehouse but celebrates Ramadan. He refuses to call the Fort Hood shooter a terrorist and stands by calling the slaughter workplace violence. Even though the man who killed13 brave Americans has spent two years in a closed hospital wing, that could have served real patriots, he has renounced his citizenship, acknowledged that he killed the people to save the Taliban, and states he is guilty. The fact that he was shot in the commission of the crime and taken directly into custody with the evidence chain not being broken makes me ask why is he still around? He has asked for the death penalty, he deserves the death penalty, let’s oblige him.
As we move further along with this administration I am amazed by the number of people who deny voting for the president. Even more amazing is the number of people with buyer’s remorse complaining about the lack of transparency, the strong-arm tactics of the president, the betrayal they feel, the blatant disregard for the law or Constitution, the obvious corruption revealed by donor payoffs in the green industry, ambassadorships given to high level bundlers, and the Benghazi, IRS, FEC, and NSA phony scandals. Side note: If Mr. Snowden is a criminal for revealing NSA culpability, will the Whitehouse staffer who leaked information concerning how we got wind of the latest terrorist threat be seeking asylum in Russia? We know the DOJ will not look into it or do their job, so I guess that individual is safe.
The problem we have was best stated by a reporter for the Czech Republic paper Prager Zeitung who stated The danger to America in not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the presidency….The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama who is a mere symptom of what ails America….The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is after all merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.”
The same people who were fooled into voting for Obama in the first election were fools again the second term or just choose not to vote. Both of those choices are equally as bad, and both voter and nonvoter share the blame for what this administration is imposing upon the United States and other nations of the world.
It appears the U.S. will not gain an ounce of respect in a second term of the post racial healer who demonizes successful Americans and is no different from fellow race hustlers Sharpton and Jackson except for the fact he has a private jet and lives in government housing.
