Obama's Presidency Has Been One Big Disaster

Obama Was Never Ready for The Presidency

Well we're less than 24 hours away from Election Day for what I believe has been the longest and most important presidential campaigns that I can remember.

I want to be right up front with anyone reading this blog so you don't have to waste your time reading it—that I'm not now nor have I ever been an Obama supporter. That stated—you have been warned.

From the very beginning of this race, I continually heard from liberals and the liberal press, which just about means every news outlet on the planet, that women were in jeopardy of losing their rights if Romney gets elected. Can anyone name a right taken away from a woman under any conservative president? Nope, nada, none. It was the proverbial "Straw Man" scare tactic devised by the media to scare women into voting for Obama.

Now, some more questions that were grossly overlooked by liberals and the liberal press. Has anyone ever seen Obama's college transcripts, or how his college education was paid for? Nope, as they've been sealed from view. In fact, he was the only person elected president of the Harvard Law Review not required to write a law review. Amazing. Says a lot about that great Ivy League bastion of education.

If Obama had submitted his resume for a job with any company – he would never have been hired, as his resume was barren of any experience other then the allegations that he was a law student. But he did have experience as a neighborhood organizer.

The people I charge with aiding and abetting the biggest con job on the American people is the liberal press. The same press that demanded a release of Bush's college transcripts.

Why did Obama, the chief executive of the most powerful country in the world representing only 5 percent of the world's population yet producing 26 percent of the world's GDP largely through the efforts of small businesses (men & women) say that those people didn't build their businesses? Because he doesn't have any concept of how to run a lemonade stand, let alone our country.

I always remember the words of John Adams, that facts are stubborn things. We've had four years of Obama facts—all dismal failures. How can anyone, no matter how passionate you are about your politics, vote with a clear conscience for Obama. His presidential record is something we can honestly measure. It is a map of how he'll handle the next four years should he be re-elected.

One last fact—There are more homes without electricity in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy than there were due to Hurricane Katrina. We have a president AWOL and campaigning rather then leading and getting help to those affected. We have a press woefully absent in any criticism of Obama's handling of this disaster. We are bearing witness to a double standard the likes of which I have never seen.

Obama's presidency has been one big disaster. We can ill afford another four years of Obama.

Why was this non-fact-based screed allowed on this site - there is nothing here of any substance and is certainly truth-free as well.

Critique my blog with facts and I repeat FACTS that are in direct conflict with what I've stated. FACT: Obama has refused to release his college transcripts unlike Al Gore, John Kerry and George Bush FACT: Obama did state for all to hear that people who created businesses didn't do it on their own. And please don't split hairs by stating they got loans form banks, because it was those very people that put their neck on the line with those loans. FACT: There are more people without electricity and power due to hurricane Sandy then those people that were without power due to Katrina. FACT: Obama NEVER was asked to produce a law review while sitting as president of Harvard Law Review Your turn!

Well said David. When George Bush left office, the debt was 6.3 trillion dollars. In President Obama's 4 years in office, this administration has managed to tack on 10 trillion dollars to our debt making it a total of 16.3 trillion dollars.

David: Your issues seem to be not with Obama but with the liberal press, the Harvard Law Review, and the fact that the area hit by Hurricane Sandy is more densely populated and therefore had more homes left without power than the area hit by Hurricane Katrina. His qualifications are certainly different from Romney's, but he is not without qualifications. One of his qualifications at this point is having brought us part way out of the deepest depression since the Great Depression, something no other President has done. It is pure speculation that anyone could have done a better job and at this point is nothing more than Monday-morning quarter-backing. As for Romney on women, he speaks for himself and his positions seem to change. That makes women uneasy. Together with the fact that there are a lot of single moms in the 47% and that women tend to be more supportive of the social services that Republicans appear to want to cut, it helps to explain the gender gap.

Carol, When Obama came onto the political scene I actually thought he was different. I thought he would be engaging and accepting. But he's been the most divisive character to enter politics in my lifetime. He's proven to be the least qualified person to ever hold the office of president. I say that, because he refuses to learn from his mistakes. To this moment he's still blaming Bush. Don't you remember how the press and democrats labeled Bush an oilman because of the price of gas? Well look at the price now. Shall I label Obama and oilman? He and his administration has no concept of economics, or foreign policy. It's really time to put someone in office that can work across the isle. Romney demonstrated that as a governor. This country is in desperate need of NON partisanship. We need to look at ideas and not partys.

As I drove down 152 yesterday, on my way to Attleboro center, I was surprised to see not one Obama political sign stuck in the turf anywhere. Plenty of Warrens and Browns and Bielats and Kennedys along with guys in the local races. Even some Romneys, but no Obama signs. Did I miss them? Or is the enthusiasm for this President, the purveyor of hope and change... and disappointment, peering from behind the curtained windows of all those houses along the route. This country needs a reset. We need to feel good about ourselves again, or we'll accomplish little. To paraphrase Romney, We don't need more welfare. We need more jobs. It'll be a sad day if Americans choose mediocre for the next four years. Romney/Ryan for a great America !!!

David: You're not following global economics or foreign policy. The world is in a growing mess. The U.S. economy is so tied into the global economy that it's naive to think that the U.S. economy will improve significantly with either Romney-thinking or Obama-thinking. We are trying to fix the economy with late 19th century economics. It simply won't work. The world's resources are being strained to the limit and American consumers have traded cheap products and technology for jobs. American consumers have the power to steer the economy in a different direction but there is no leadership to mobilize the population to do so. We have demanded cheap and convenient and brought this on ourselves. India knew how to address the plight of the poor and the jobless. They stopped wearing clothes made by mill workers in England and started spinning and making their own clothes. We have lessons to learn from others. Politicians who want to be re-elected won't take us there.
David Saad November 06, 2012 at 02:57 PM
You've stated it well. Romney, who has a better grasp on world economics is better suited for the presidency. Common sense prohibits us from re-electing Obama. He's been a disaster in every sense of the word. And we haven't even touched on Benghazi. He is by far more reprehensible then Nixon ever thought of being. By the way, when was the last time you saw thugs outside of polling stations? In 2008 and now we're seeing it again in Philadelphia. If Obama had any sense of good he would tell the Black Panthers to stand down. He told Tyrone Woods to Stand down. Yes I repeat - He told him to stand down, because as Truman once said, "The buck stops here (president)." I left the Republican party because I couldn't stand the ignoring of ideas over party politics. I'm still a conservative, but an Independent conservative.

David, Sadly, attacks on U.S. diplomatic targets have occurred under both Democratic and Republican administrations going back decades. While I am not minimizing the loss of life in the Benghazi attack, I urge you to read the following article in order to see it in perspective. http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2012/10/libya-consulate-embassy-attacks-obama-romney Barack Obama has conducted foreign policy with a steady hand and I feel confident he will continue to do so if re-elected.
