Three reasons to support Obama
I quote from Charles Krauthammer’s column “Obama agenda goes way beyond banks and autos” (4/7, Opinion): “The credit crisis will pass and the auto overcapacity will sort itself out one way or the other. The reordering of the American system will come from Obama’s real agenda: his holy trinity of health care, education and energy. Out of these will come a(n) … economic leveling in the name of fairness …”
Mr. Krauthammer, my hat is off to you. In very succinct terms you have identified the three primary reasons, and in the correct order. I might add, that I voted for President Obama. I hope and pray he is successful.
Conned by Obama
As you may have noticed, President Obama has taken to invoking 9/11 in his Bush-like attempt to raise fear and support for his new never-ending wars in Afghanistan and Pakistan. That’s right, we have all fallen victim to the ultimate con man and the single greatest fraud ever perpetrated on the American people.
Instead of peace, we have war. Instead of economic equality, we have trillions upon trillions being funneled to the super rich on Wall Street. Our unions are being busted under a double standard that allows the honoring of AIG bonus contracts but not of union contracts. A generation has been robbed of its savings, retirements and futures while we talk about Michelle Obama’s sweaters.
Yes, it is true that our president did inherit some, if not most, of these problems, but it is also true that he has perpetuated most of them through his arrogance and bumbling. As long as we continue to be fooled by Obama’s media blitz and his Lincoln wanna-be persona, the middle class will continue to disappear as the unemployment rolls continue to swell.
