When we watch and listen to President Obama on any day, anyone with any prior recorded speeches, memory, and/or other experience must come to a decision that as President Obama says one thing today is, perhaps, opposite of his expressions of yesterday and/or yesteryear.
It appears President Obama’s decisions include lack of professionalism in leadership, his appointments, etc., as well as in improving our weakened economy. President Obama’s political decisions are near most ‘opposite thinking’ of any and all successful decisions that have been fruitful in working so well for our economy in more than 200 years. Additionally, we read, see, and hear of catastrophes within the Justice Department, National Security, tax-evasion appointees, and the $831 billion ‘Stimulus’ potential frauds; many involve approving America’s taxpayers’ money awarded to friends and donors of the White House and Capitol Hill Democrats.
After more than four years of blaming President George Bush for Obama’s failing economy, President Obama is now blaming Speaker Boehner and Congressional Republicans for his own political and fiscal failures. When will this ‘childlike’ President accept any of his own irresponsibility?
While President Obama’s friend and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has, in four consecutive years, failed to pass a Senate ‘budget’ as required by law, President Obama continues to praise Sen. Reid’s failures of Constitutional law.
President Obama’s record illustrates how our economy continues to slump as reported by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics with ‘U-6 Total unemployed, plus all persons marginally attached to the labor force, plus total employed part time for economic reasons, as a percent of the civilian labor force plus all persons marginally attached to the labor force unemployment heights’ nears ‘depression’ levels of 14.4% as managed under Obama’s failed political and fiscal policies.
Additionally, President Obama’s political policy failures seem to be based on National Security. Obama’s team lacks competence exposing failures of Embassy employees, who were under a terrorist attack for seven hours that left U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other U.S. nationals to die on September 11, 2012 in Benghazi, Libya; and without the US Consulate’s requested assistances for help.
Former Sec. of State Hillary Clinton and the Obama Administration continue to focus on, not what the failures were and/or what may have prevented these lives, but to repeat that this Administration’s efforts are to make sure it doesn’t happen again. There were serious failures as if some on the Obama team may have been unknowing, uncaring, intoxicated, and/or on drugs, rather than being knowing, caring, sober, alert, and on the job.
News reports say President Obama, himself, never had any telephone communications during this time frame. American servants deserve more than as was provided these four Americans as they were dying in this instance.
Lest we forget Fast and Furious! Evidence may prove that several associates in President Obama’s administration, including the US Justice Department, and members of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) acted in the Fast and Furious plot while selling and/or approving the sale of automatic rifles, shotguns, and pistols, to a ‘Mexican drug cartel’; weapons that were used in ‘murdering’ at least 3 innocent Americans and hundreds of Mexicans. Our Justice Department and/or ATF had devised a scheme in an attempt to blame U.S. firearms manufacturers as scapegoats for this criminal violence.
There are even more continuing failures. Are you confused? From President Obama’s News Transcript on March 1, 2013, President Obama says, “Look, we've already cut $2.5 trillion in our deficit.” How, what, where, and when has President Obama cut $2.5 Trillion? Please, show the facts!
The National debt has increased by more than $6 trillion since President Barack Obama took office, marking the largest increase under any president in history.
US Government and Obama’s Deficits are for: FY 2010: $1.293 Trillion; FY 2011: $1.300 Trillion; FY 2012: $1.089 Trillion; and FY 2013* $901 Billion (Note: Federal Deficit is budgeted.) The National debt under President Obama’s ‘clock’ has now exceeded $6 Trillion.
Lastly, while President Obama continues to promise and repeatedly claims ‘transparency’, he and his administration practice the opposite. Worse of all, he is failing America and our citizens and our children on all social, fiscal, and national security issues.
May God Bless America!
