Obama's own record should lead to ouster

We cannot allow President Barack Obama four more years.

He's ruining our country with his foreign, social and monetary policies. He refuses to lift his moratorium to drill for oil, even though gas prices are around $4 a gallon. He borrows from China. His spending resulted in Standard and Poor's warning about downgrading the rating on federal debt (for the first time since Dec. 7, 1941).

On May 3, a letter from the chairman of the Beaufort County Democratic Party attempted to dispel polls showing 78 percent of South Carolina Republicans believe Obama is a socialist. The facts speak for themselves. He rammed through "Obamacare" and wants complete government control. He wants to redistribute wealth. The government has taken over several companies, dictating salaries and senior positions; subsidized banks and mortgages; paid Chrysler unions rather than bondholders; subsidized unions with TARP dollars; is suing Boeing for wanting to build a non-union plant in South Carolina; is suing Arizona for wanting to enforce its immigration laws.

Obama should be easy to defeat if the media didn't have a lovefest with him. Many articles blame President George W. Bush or Republican policies for slashing Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security and trying to put seniors, poor and sick people out on the street. It will be difficult to overcome these obstacles, but what we have going for us is Obama's record.
