People tell us, “Oh, you guys say that every election is the most important we’ve ever had.” Is it an exaggeration to say that the very nature of our American experiment is at risk, if Obama is reelected?
When people tell me that they intend to cast a second presidential vote for Obama I have to wonder, why? Didn’t Obama say he would reach across the aisle and facilitate cooperation between the parties? Every bill the Republican House sends to the Democrat-run Senate is dead on arrival. And every budget the President sends to the Democrat-led Senate gets zero votes, not even from his own party, indicating a lack of seriousness on the president’s part. Doesn’t this president have a clue how a budget is put together to garner congressional support? Could the answer be no?
It isn’t a lemonade stand that a president is running. We elected a man on his good looks and his ability to read a teleprompter. Heck, he used one to address 30 sixth-graders in Falls Church, Virginia in 2010. We elected a man because we wanted to put race considerations behind us, and thought it a mark of our tolerance that we did so. Ever since his election, he and his alternates, most egregiously Attorney General Eric Holder, accuse anyone who disagrees with a philosophy or a program of this administration of being bigoted. What?
I’d elect a purple man president, if he understood what makes the economy tick, and how excessive regulation chokes employment. Come to think of it, I’ll vote for the Romney/Ryan ticket for that reason.
