Mr. Obama Needs to Go

I promised you loyal readers that I would offer up my reasoning for preferring that we fire our current President,  Mr. Barack Obama.  So..... here it is.... four reasons I believe the President needs to go.

Before I start,  I would like to say I am not an Obama hater.  I do not have an intense dislike for him and I really don't think he's a communist conspirator like so many Republicans seem to believe.  I actually think he seems like a nice person, he loves his wife and his lovely daughters...... I think he'd be easy to have a beer with and chat about football, or whatever.  I think he is working very, very hard to make our country better (in his mind).  I just think he's not a very good President.

Number 1.   Nationalized health care, aka Obamacare.  Not because I am totally opposed to new ideas to get health care under control, but for the fact that he wasted 2 years of his valuable time on the ever- present Democratic dream of  "health care for all".   I agree he inherited a terrible economy, the national situation was  alarming......so,  he decides to focus on this one issue?   He was punished for this in the elections of 2010, which lead to the very extreme Tea Party taking over the Republican party thus dooming any sort of bi-partisan action on the part of Congress.  The government essentially stopped.  This was all a direct consequence of his arrogance, incompetence and inexperience.    

Number 2.  President Obama came into office with very little experience "running" anything and it showed.  This is equivalent to giving the job of the CEO for an Engineering firm to a recent law school graduate !    Obama was a Senator for 4 years at the national level.   Four Years !  For half that four years he was running for President.   It is testament to our pathetic process of electing leaders that someone so totally unprepared and unqualified to become the most powerful man in the world, nevertheless, became the most powerful man in the world.  

Number 3.  $16,000,000,000,000.  That's a lot of zeros.  That's how much our country owes.  Mr. President doesn't seem to think this is really that worrisome.   To any thinking American, this is terrifying.  How can we sustain our spending habits with this massive debt load underlying all economic activity in this country?   If there is not some sort of logical,  realistic plan to correct this we WILL be in a depression when the entire economic system falls in upon itself.   I don't see Mr. Obama doing anything to fix it.  Why would you fix something you don't even believe is a problem?

Number 4.  The President promised to bring the country together.  I have never seen this country so diametrically opposed as it is now.  He flat-out failed on this endeavor.

So, there you have it.  That's why I don't think Barack Obama should be re-elected to the Presidency.
