President Barack Obama took office four years ago, with no experience, no plans and no accomplishments. Sorry, but the spending-binge bus has not turned around, and it is about to run over the cliff. Here are some facts:
Gas up 84 percent. Unemployment (non-farm) up 23.7 percent. Number of federal employees up 2.2 percent. Real median household income down 0.7 percent. Number of food stamp recipients up 35.1 percent. Number of long-term unemployed up 146.2 percent. Poverty rate for individuals up 8.3 percent. National debt up 32.2 percent ($16.2 trillion). To this, we can add the overall foreign policy failures that have reduced the United States to a fourth-rate power in the eyes of the world.
Obama says that we shouldn't look backward and dwell in the past. Instead, he looks backward and dwells on Romney's past. Benjamin Franklin said, "He that is good at making excuses is seldom good for anything else." Amen. Recently, Obama said, "... there are going to be bumps in the road." Sorry, bumps are not allowed here.
Did you vote for Obama in 2008? Please don't let Obama fool you twice. He only likes to be president and dislikes being a leader. If that is what you want, go ahead and vote for him. Make your choice based on facts and not Democratic talking points. The CEO of the United States has failed. We own the United States. When our CEO fails, we fire him.
Never miss a local story.
