Time to hold President Obama to his word
When Scott Walker ran for governor, he promised to balance the budget without raising taxes, and that’s what he did.
When Barack Obama ran for president, he promised to cut the deficit in half, put the economy back on track, put Americans back to work and bring all of us together.
Instead, he doubled the deficit, we have an economy growing at a rate of just 1.5 percent, unemployment has been over 8 percent for years and July unemployment is up in 44 states.
We are more divided than ever, thanks to the president.
He tells Latinos to get out and vote to “punish your enemies.”
He tells West Coast liberals we stupid rural folks continue to “cling to our guns and religion” and “antipathy to others who don’t look like us.”
He tells crowds the greedy selfish rich people won’t pay a “fair share” (when they already pay 80 percent of all federal income tax).
He sends his hack, Joe Biden, out to tell black people Republicans “gonna put y’all back in chains.”
What did Obama, (Harry) Reid and (Nancy) Pelosi do when they had all the power?
They jammed Obamacare down our throats by means of lie after lie and dirty backroom deals.
They passed a stimulus bill that’s been a huge failure because it was used as a payoff for unions and wasted on Solyndra and other boondoggles.
All Cash for Clunkers did was wreck used cars, drive up used car prices and cause people who were already in the market for a new car to buy a little early.
New car sales fell right back off as soon as the Cash for Clunkers money ran out.
Now, 60 percent of Americans say this country is headed in the wrong direction and the economy is worse.
An Associated Press survey of economists and academics projects the official poverty rate will climb to 15.7 percent this fall.
Obama’s weakness has caused Vladimir Putin to regard him as no threat when it comes to Syria and Iran and has allowed Iran to keep right on developing nuclear weapons.
China knows Obama is a pushover, so they continue to oppose us in the U.N. and cheat on trade agreements.
If Israel is forced to act against Iran, it will be because Obama has proven to be a feckless ally and foe.
Obama said if he didn’t have things fixed “after three years, this is going to be a one-term proposition.”
Isn’t it time we held this president to his word?
