As we come to the close of another year, we are one year closer to ending the Obama years and it cannot come soon enough. There should be no doubt that he has been one of the worst presidents this country has seen. I am not a presidential historian, so I don’t know about every president, but he is without a doubt the worst in my lifetime and I was born when Truman was in office.
When Obama came into office the economy was in shambles, but did he concentrate on rebuilding it? No, he threw all his attention on his healthcare law, which was unpopular then and still remains unpopular today, there is no doubt in my mind it will either fall apart on its own or be repealed. We now know that everything he told us about Obama-Care was a lie, it seems this president has a hard time telling the American people the truth. People wanted jobs, but he chose to shove healthcare down our throats. We now have an unemployment rate of 5.8%, but many economists say the real number is still in the double digits.
He passed a Trillion dollar stimulus package that was supposed to create shovel ready jobs, and then laughed and said “Shovel-ready was not as shovel-ready as we expected,” big joke on the American people. He went on to create tons of new regulation that only kept our economy from growing.
Then, how can we forget the 2011 S&P downgrade, it was the first time the government was given a rating below AAA. S&P had announced a negative outlook on the AAA rating in April 2011, downgraded to AA-. Let’s not forget that the National Debt is now up to 18 trillion dollars and it is expected to reach 20 trillion by the time Obama leaves office. Obama once said it was ‘unpatriotic’ and ‘irresponsible’ to add $4 trillion to the debt. The debt was at $10.6 trillion when Obama took office in 2009 but has increased by 70 percent during his roughly six years in office, I guess that means Obama is the most unpatriotic president in the history of our country.
From the day that Obama first walked into the White House, he has done nothing but drive a wedge through the heart of America; we are a more divided country then I have ever seen. How can we forget that incomes have decreased since Obama has taken office. Obama twice ran for the White House promising to reduce the gap between rich and poor, instead it expanded across the board. The rich are getting richer and the poor, poorer because of his failed policies.
Obama has done great harm to this country. I used to think he was incompetent, but he knows exactly what he is doing, on October 30th, 2008 at a campaign rally in Columbia, Missouri he said, “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” Most people believed he meant for the better, but many of us knew exactly what he meant, he wanted a more Socialist type of society, which he has worked hard to achieve.
There are two things that make a good leader:
- A leader must know how to bring people together
- A leader must take responsibility for his actions.
Obama is a failure on both points; he has divided a nation and always passes the buck when things go wrong. The only way I think America can come back after Obama, is to repeal everything that he has done and start over, otherwise we may be doomed.
