And filled with dread about the condition of our country at present. Now I may not always have glowing words for Obama, but I did have great hopes for the man.
Is everything wrong with the Country presently Obama’s fault?
But what have Obama and his policies done to help the country? What is Obama’s plan? Does anybody have a plan for that matter? Can Romney’s plan, whatever that may be, exactly… save the USA from becoming Greece or some third world banana republic?
I know one thing for certain- and Clinton’s presidency proved it- the only things
that are going to help save our great nation are pragmatism and compromise -
partisanship and political gamemanship are the road to destruction – and we are almost destroyed.
The President heavily criticizes tax cuts and cutting excess regulations, but how does taking money out of people’s pockets and adding compliance costs help people and business?
Obama says he’s for the “little guy,” but how does bailing out Wall Street help?
With all the money spent bailing out bankers, he could have bailed out students who
can’t pay their debts, buy homes, are putting off having families and can’t even move out of their parents homes. Students and graduates are broke and jobless while the “Banksters” are still obscenely wealthy.
Has Obama done anything to stop “corporate welfare,” the most obscene government expenditure of all?
Taxpayer dollars go to help giant companies like GM, McDonalds, IBM, GE and others sell their products overseas and to have those products manufactured overseas. For all his
talk about the American Worker and how Obama gonna save domestic manufacturing. Where is his legislation to end the tax breaks and subsidies to giant corporations who move American jobs overseas?
Obama says he’s for energy independence while he wages a war on coal miners, oil workers and anybody else in the fossil fuels industry.
Look at North Dakota- they are running about 2% unemployment because of fossil fuel exploration, refining and other related industries. Where have all the solar and wind energy dollars given to manufacturers gone? Nowhere! So many of these government subsidized industries are BANKRUPT!
Crony Capitalism does not work. And neither does giving up on proven sources of energy while future energy sources are still being developed.
Clinton, I think, undercut the President by going over his economic prowess. Four years of budget surpluses under Clinton contrasted with four years of trillion dollar deficits under Obama. Twenty million jobs created under Clinton, that’s an amazing statistic. Obama talks about 28 straight months of private sector job growth- but simple growth is not enough- we need exponential growth.
Clinton- besides his silly misadventures in Serbia, basically kept us out of war. W is the one who got us back into active combat operations in Iraq, while Clinton basically just enforced a “no-fly” zone for 8 years. Obama says we are out of Iraq, but we are not “completely” out and are not through with combat operations. And through drones and special ops forces we are knee deep in Yemen, Somalia, Libya, Pakistan, Syria and a myriad of other Nations that few Americans know about.
And this guy won the Nobel Peace Prize?
What I fear is that we will never have a leader like Clinton again.
The main reason I have faith in Mr. Romney is because he was elected as a Republican from the “Bluest of Blue” states- Massachusetts. He had to work with Democrats to get anything done. And he pioneered universal health care…
So he must have a heart and be compassionate.
I had faith in Obama 4 years ago, and that faith is now gone.
I like the President as a person and believe he’s a fine human being- but he’s a lousy leader. And after watching Clinton give a valiant speech defending the indefensible-Obama’s record- I truly miss Clinton. He was about the furthest thing from being a perfect human being. Or even as a politician – NAFTA and GATT were disastrous for America’s manufacturing base.
