President Obama thinks he deserves reelection. His accomplishments are actually many. Unfortunately his accomplishments are consistently bad forAmerica. Let’s recap a few of the accomplishments and see if he deserves another four years in the White House.
The economy. The economy continues to limp along and the Congressional Budget Office is even forecasting 1% economic growth in 2013. That is hope and change for you. Not that the CBO is ever wrong mind you, but if they were willing to forecast such a low number that tells me that they know something that we don’t. Maybe they realize that Obama’s policies constitute one massive, unprecedented destruction of capital, or maybe they actually understand what Obamacare will do to the economy. Regardless, score one in the Obama failure column.
Foreign affairs. The United States is now the Rodney Dangerfield of nations. We get no respect. Why? Because we haven’t earned it. When other nations see us stabbing our allies in the back, setting an arbitrary, political timetable for withdrawing from Iraq, etc. they start to get nervous. Actually, those nations understand the implications of US policy better than the US government does. There are those who support Hilary Clinton for Vice President. I agree; she would do less damage there. Score another one in the Obama failure column.
Energy independence. President Obama nixed the Keystone XL pipeline. Obviously he concluded that infrastructure jobs would not benefit the country; neither would using Canadian, as opposed to mid-Eastern, oil. Much better to flush hundreds of millions of dollars down the toilet with Solyndra and the President’s green utopia. See? That is how capital is destroyed. Let’s score this one as a failure.
The federal deficit. Remember the deficit? Not that long ago it was in the news all the time. Now, not so much, but it is not any smaller and is not going away. Of course how can you even calculate a deficit without a budget? Never mind. I have to put this one in the failure column.
Taxes. Apparently, President Obama’s new slogan from the National Prayer Breakfast is “What would Jesus tax?” Well, Jesus wouldn’t actually tax anything, but I am willing to surmise that taxes are higher now than in Jesus’ day. According to unrv.com:
“Taxes in the Roman Empire, in comparison with modern times, were certainly no more excessive. In many cases they are far less per capita than anything we can compare to today.”
Obama never met a tax he didn’t like, especially when he sees it as an opening to engage in class warfare and even more capital destruction. Another failure.
Obamacare. A bunch of brainiacs who have never so much as worked in a fast food joint redesigned, socialized and bureaucratized the health care system. Need I say more? This is such a disaster it gets two points in the failure column.
What’s the score? Obamas’s failures 7; the American people 0. And this man wants to be reelected. Good grief. Are there any Republican candidates out there actually paying attention to what is going on and what needs to be done about it?
