Getting to the Point

Frustration and anger can be contained for just so long before they boil over.  Many people I know are quickly reaching that point, and it's time for some extremely blunt talk.

I am sick and tired of the hypocrisy and eternal campaigning in which Obama engages.  White House tours have been shut down during spring break, allegedly because of the miniscule sequestration.  There are lots of disappointed children out there who had been planning a trip to D.C. to take the tour. Meanwhile, the Obama daughters gleefully jet from the Bahamas to snow skiing in Idaho on the taxpayers' money, and the president has averaged more than one vacation a month during the first three months of 2013.  

It's apparent that when Obama isn't campaigning, he's vacationing.  Our economy is virtually stalled, millions of people are either unemployed or have given up looking for a job and the number of people using food stamps has grown at an alarming rate.  For the royal Obamas to be prancing about on their lavish vacations while millions of Americans are suffering is downright insulting. They are figuratively spitting in the collective face of the American populace.  

To add insult to injury, Barack Obama is THE biggest liar we've ever had in the White House. He has demonstrated a total lack of respect for our laws and the Constitution and his policies are, I believe, deliberately designed to hurt the United States.  His word means nothing, as he has revealed himself to be completely untrustworthy.  

Perhaps most egregiously, however, is his failure to protect our national security.  When an American president fails to lead, the result is mounting chaos world-wide, and Obama has shown extreme weakness in the face of these dangers. It seems that he has not taken the very real threats that Russia, North Korea, Iran and China represent seriously and it's obvious the leaders of these countries have a profound lack of respect for the president.  

In short, he has failed to uphold the oath of office he took when inaugurated. He has been derelict in his duty, overstepped the boundaries of his power at home, failed to support our allies and has emboldened our enemies.  For all these reasons, he should be impeached and removed from office.

President Obama and the rest of his administration must believe Americans are as dumb as a box of rocks.  Director of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano goes on TV to tell us that the lines at the major airports are longer than usual and that it's taking longer to get through customs.  Meanwhile, the airports are saying that the lines are not longer and are moving normally.  Why do they lie about something that's so easily verifiable?  Could it be that Obama and Napolitano think we're too stupid or lazy to know they're lying?  

Obama is obviously trying to save money.  For instance, he's cancelled all White House tours due to the sequestration. Boy, that's going to save a lot of money - White House tours are conducted by unpaid volunteers!  There was no need to shut these down; it's merely a spiteful, punitive move by a small, petulant man who's angry that he hasn't gotten his way.  One more thing - the White House is NOT yours, Mr. President; it belongs to the American people.  

Obama is not worthy of our respect.  I can understand why he and others in his administration think Americans are stupid.  After all, they did elect him twice.

Contempt and Loathing

Well, the talks today between congressional leaders and the president about the impending sequestration apparently have failed.  Is anyone surprised?  

President Obama portrays himself as having his hands tied - those evil, rigid Republicans simply won't compromise and won't agree to "new revenue".  Meanwhile, Obama repeats over and over, ad nauseam, that he wants a "balanced approach" (please see my blog posting of 2/8/13 for that definition).  

May we remind the president that he has already raised our taxes this year, and it's now time for him to do some compromising?  Democrats always promise spending cuts sometime in the not well-defined future, but somehow that time never seems to come.  

If the president were even halfway honest, he'd tell people that he has no interest in cutting governmental spending and his "balanced approach" means he wants tax hikes on everyone.  When he says that Republicans won't agree to "new revenue", what he really means is that Republicans refuse to raise taxes, especially in light of the fact that we've already seen a tax hike this year.  Republicans wanted to pass a bill that would give President Obama greater flexibility in deciding where spending cuts would occur when the sequestration kicks in, but Obama immediately announced he would veto such a bill. Why would he do that, when it gives him more power?  It's simple:  if such a bill were passed, the president would then have to actually make a decision and take some responsibility (gasp!) for something and we can't have that!

The fact is, Obama wants to make the sequestration as painful as possible for as many people as possible in the belief that Americans will blame Republicans for their pain. He is hell bent on decimating Republicans in the hope that Democrats can take control of the House next year. The fact that an American president is willing to inflict unnecessary pain on the American populace for his own political gain is shocking and shameful.  

I pray that my fellow Americans will wake up and recognize the chaos and damage that this president is wreaking on our country, all in the name of political power.  Obama has inspired some strong feelings in many people.  For me, those feelings are contempt and loathing.
