The failures of Obama

Senator Barack Obama called George W. Bush “unpatriotic” for raising the debt $4 trillion in eight years. President Obama has raised the debt over $5 trillion in less than four years.

In 2009 the unemployment rate was 7.2% and gas was $1.80. Even with manipulation by the administration (not counting people who have simply given up looking for work) the unemployment rate is now 8.1% and gas approaching $4.00. Even if their claim of creating 4 million jobs is true, we still lost a net 740,000 jobs. Obama says, it was “worse than we thought” and he needs more time. Obamanomics = FAIL.

During their national convention, Obama, John Kerry and Joe Biden bragged about killing Osama bin Laden. Last week on 9-11, Islamic extremists in Egypt and Libya responded with violence and murder. Rioters breached the walls of our embassy in Cairo, then shredded and burned our flag.

The embassy released an apology citing an anti Islamic film (which virtually no one has seen) as the reason for the attack. Essentially apologizing for our First Amendment. Liberals are always surprised by the reactions of radicals who are emboldened by signs of weakness.

Obama tried to distance himself from the embassy statement (his own policies of appeasement). The apology didn’t jive with what the attackers were shouting “Obama, Obama there are still a billion Osamas.” Obama killed their hero.

While Obama went into hiding, Mitt Romney stepped up for America (acting presidential) by denouncing the embassy’s apology for something our government had no part in. Obama’s attack dog media criticized Romney for jumping the gun without knowing all the facts, implying that it helped lead to the murder of our ambassador to Libya.

Obama’s first statement was not to condemn the attacks, but that Romney has a tendency to shoot first and aim later. But, we must remember it was Obama who called for the ouster of Hosni Mubarak in Egypt without knowing who would replace him (the Muslim Brotherhood).

Also, it was Obama who “led from behind” in the killing of Muammar Gaddafi in Libya. His assumption that Libyans hated Gaddafi as much as we did, may have been a flawed one. Obama didn’t learn from the worst mistake Bush made in Iraq. Two countries where Obama took decisive action to intervene are in total chaos. The entire region is following suit. Obama foreign policy = FAIL.

One day after our ambassador and three other Americans were murdered—with the whole Middle East/North African region on fire—Obama flew off to Vegas and Golden, CO, for campaigning/fundraisers. He told Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu that he didn’t have time to meet, on the same day it was announced he’s doing the Letterman show. Obama common sense = FAIL.

Obama and his party do deserve some credit. They put up a good fight against the Republicans’ war on women, children, old ladies in wheelchairs, Medicare, clean air, clean water, female college students who can’t afford to have sex and Romney’s dog Shamus. Re-electing Obama and his ship of fools = FAIL.
