I really liked Obama and was happy to see him win in 2008 because I really believed that he, more than anyone else, would understand the plight of the average American worker that under previous democratic and republican administrations was left behind by a status quo mentality of the elite of this country who continue to ignore the middle class.
Unfortunately, since Obama took office more than three years ago, all that we have seen is a complete turnaround of everything he said he was going to do as president when he vowed to be the president of the people.
President Obama has been the complete liberal he was purported to be before the 2008 presidential elections instead of being the middle-of-the-road president he campaigned for and won.
Obama's umbrella-type social agenda for this country of the past three plus years makes even Lyndon Johnson’s “Great Society” and Franklin Roosevelt’s vast government expansion of the 1930s, minor undertakings. Obama has literally given away America and must not be reelected in 2012 because he has been a president of failure, an anemic president unworthy of the office he holds.
Obama has failed the American people where it counts the most: their pockets. After more than three years as president, our economy is still reeling and is in disarray, unemployment is still hovering above 8 percent, budget deficits keep rising exponentially, heathcare costs continue to rise, jobs are still leaving this country, taxes are choking most Americans and all that Obama wants to do is to raise taxes on small businesses and corporations–the same entities that through their initiative and motivation factor create the wealth of this country.
What is going on? Why are the American people buying this nonsense by a president who speak well without delivering anything. His economic programs have been a failure, his policies destructive and his promises empty. Obamacare that was supposed to bring down health care costs has actually accomplished the reverse.
In its present form, Obamacare is a failed program and if it is left intact, will derail this country’s economy to the depths of despair for many years to come. Yes, another four years of an Obama’s presidency will create a worldwide economic depression unseen since the great depression of the 1930s.
It is to say the least, a scary thought for a country that for decades provided the American people the highest standard of living among all the industrialized nations of the world. Today for the first time in nation’s history, future generations of Americans will not have a better tomorrow like many of us who always looked to the future for a better life and a prosperous tomorrow.
Today’s children will not be as lucky as we were when we always knew that tomorrow would bring a brighter day. This is not what America should settle for. This is not what I settled for when I came to this country so many years ago.
Back then, I knew and expected that with hard work, I would achieve my American dream and be able to have a “tiny piece of that American pie.” Today, the same cannot be said for my children and grandchildren.
It is a sad, sad commentary for the United States of America, the country my father used to call, the land of honey and opportunity for all.
