A Question For Obama Supporters

Here's a question for Obama. If during his first three and a half years in office, knowing that he would be facing reelection, he did nothing to create a business atmosphere that was conducive to stimulating the economy, what makes him think we will believe the economy and jobs are on his agenda for a second term?
He can boast that he created 4.5 million jobs (the majority of which were low paying, non-professional jobs), but the devil is in the details. That there were 4.5 million jobs created is true, but it is also true that he cost us 5 million jobs and that results in a net loss of 500,000 jobs to go along with an unemployment rate that is in reality 11-plus percent.

Obama had an opportunity to focus on jobs and the economy. His party had veto-proof majorities in both houses of Congress, but instead he nationalized healthcare, the automobile industry and banks. Now he wants us to believe he will create jobs and fix the economy.

Specific to that point he cannot fix the economy by raising taxes and increasing the debt while gutting the military.

The truth is -- Obama has no intention of creating a favorable business climate. His idea of austerity cuts extend only to gutting the military. In his first term he succeeded in increasing the national debt by over $5 trillion; he was successful in 23 million people going unemployed, and he successfully increased the number of people on food-stamps to 48 million. In his first term we saw gas prices double and correspondingly food and consumer goods rise in price exponentially. We witnessed him lie about healthcare and we watched his wife flaunt herself like the Chicago version of "Honey Boo-Boo," but with less class and less integrity.

With all of that and more in his rearview mirror, just think what he can do if he gets a second term. After his first term we have one-in-7 people on food-stamps and one-in-6 people receiving government aide. I don't think that's the American dream people want for their children.

    His major goal is for the Government to run everything. The people will have to just be satisfied with whatever the Government deigns to "give" them.

    But I'd wager that the salaries of Government will continue to rise.

    Nothing good has happened in the last 3 yrs. and 9 months. Give him 4 more years, and our great country will not resemble what it did when he started destroying it.

    He wants to continue doing the same things hurtful to our individual rights, most especially our economic rights or our right to earn a living. The complete economic stagnation of the last four years will surely continue as he takes even more draconian steps to curb our fossil fuel energy use and otherwise removes decisions from the private sector in ever greater numbers and hands them to hordes of central planners.

    Distressingly many Americans will vote for Obama, but not enough for him to win the election.

    So far, housing, jobs, banks, automobile, retirement futures and so on have all been devistated by OB. Imagine what he can do with 4 more years.

    Contrary to your question, I'm not an Obama supporter, but I will presume to answer for them, if I may be so bold. Obama has presided over a number of firsts that any Obama supporter should really consider if they think that things will improve if he gets in for another 4 years. In this term, he has reneged on his promise to get us out of Iraq and Afghanistan, also his promise to close Gitmo, and to bring the unemployment rate down to 4 to 5%, it is "officially" at 8.2, but everyone knows it is at 11+%. He promised we would all be better off under Obamacare, then no one read it before it was passed, especially Nancy Pelosi, when she said "We have to pass the bill to find out what is in it!" He promised that he would improve the situations in the Middle East, because of his apology tour when he first came into office, but every Muslim country over there hates us and is rioting against our Embassies. He has turned his back on the Christian core and mainstream yet embraced the Muslim Brotherhood, a known terrorist organization, giving them 1.5 Billion dollars. He promised to bring our debt under control, and yet spent 6+ Trillion $$$, more than any President in history, in fact, more than all the previous Presidents combined.

Obama has lied to the American people continuously, and has time and again operated outside the Law, which is the Constitution, the Law this country was designed to run on. There is no question that he is not capable of, nor fit for, running this country. It is time for Congress and the Senate to grow a pair and impeach this guy, his Czars, and his other minions, and throw the whole lot of them in jail.

    Obama doesn't even listen to his hand selected advisers. He has proven time and again he cares about his agenda. Socialism for America and the destruction of Capitalism.
