The cover of Newsweek magazine depicts a picture of President Obama with a multicolored halo. The intent of course is to depict Obama as an angel for his new stand on same sex marriage, which is contrary to his original stand when he first ran for office. The new approach is an attempt to win votes, but is being played off as a change of heart by the President, Pelosi, and other democrats.
There is very little President Obama can take claim for with our failing economy, astronomical debt, and so on. Consequently, trying to win votes from anyone is essential to his reelection. Even sadder is his need to take claim for the death of Osama bin Laden, as a one man band, when the true fame belongs to those Navy Seals who risked their lives in that daring melodrama.
It is truly a gloomy day when a president cannot talk about any of his accomplishments in three and a half years as part of his reelection campaign. Attacks on Mitt Romney’s business ethics and high school bullying seems to be the only approach for Obama in his attempt to fight for reelection. Unfortunately, President Obama has to stand on his own accomplishments, but what are they?
Over almost four years President Obama did the following:
He spent billions of dollars in bailouts (see below), unemployment is at an all time high, S &P downgraded the U.S for the first time in history, the U.S. is on the brink of bankruptcy, the growth of big government continues, Obama Care, turning his back on Israel and other foreign affairs mishaps, as well as having the sole responsibility for corporation’s fleeing the United States in droves to places with lower corporate taxes. And if that isn’t enough, we look weak as a country in the eyes of our enemies as a result of this president and the staff he choose, yet the blame game continues with his eloquent game of semantics hoping no one will notice, remember, or acknowledge his failures.
Pleading for the gay vote, as seen here, represents just one more act of desperation by a failing president to understand the American people, he has to run on social issues what else is there?
