On inauguration day, January 20, 2009, our new president revealed one of his many broken promises. He promised to close the American Gitmo base in Cuba a year hence. But it’s still open! Next came his apology tour. Barack Obama traveled the world apologizing for the bad things America has done to, but not praising the things we’ve done for, the world. Supporters said he was just “setting the record straight.” I disagree; the apology tour hurt our country, our people, our team! His strategy for Iraq was to announce to the enemy a date certain when the troops would be withdrawn. The same strategy is locked in for Afghanistan. Don’t worry, the enemy is on standby, waiting in the wings for us to walk away...
The American President has weakened our economy in many ways, one by quadrupling the national debt. He said if the stimulus bill was not passed, our unemployment would be held below 8%. Yet, it's still over 9%! The “Cash for Klunkers” program was a failure. More jobs were lost and our dependence on foreign oil increased by the ban he placed on American offshore drilling and the hold he placed on U.S. Arctic oil exploratory digging. If other countries can do these things, why can’t we? The president forced a health care bill through Congress, against the will of the American people. It could hurt us forever.
President Obama supports negotiating with Iran, while Ahmadinejad doesn’t recognize the existence of the state of Israel, and has threatened to wipe it off the face of the earth. Mr. Obama also shows blatant disrespect for Israel. As Communists and socialists do, our president wants to redistribute wealth. Reader, how do you feel about giving up some of your money? Who decides how much? Not you! Why doesn’t he set a good example for us, since he's a wealthy person? The guy plays golf while saying he “won’t rest” until the oil spill is cleaned up. And, unlike President John F. Kennedy’s noble goal to place a man on the moon and return him safely to the earth, Barack Obama recently said NASA’s main mission is to make Muslims feel good by showing them how much they’ve contributed to science. How can he sleep at night?
Has the current president done anything right? Yes, President Obama has placed more troops in Afghanistan. He signed a hate crime bill. But that’s pretty slim pickin’s compared to the harm he's doing, don’t you agree?
