Perhaps that is the wrong show. Older American’s may remember the show “Queen for a Day”. Each contestant would tell the audience her story of misery and misfortune. At the end of these tales of woe, the audience would vote to give the prize to the contestant who had the most miserable life. Obama’s record of the past 4 years is certainly a tale of woe. The tale includes unacceptably high unemployment; trillion dollar deficits, a 50% increase in the national debt to $16 trillion; anemic economic recovery with growth of less than 2%; a 5% reduction in median family income; a fiscal cliff about to send America into a double dip recession; a cover-up of the murder of America’s Libyan ambassador; a doubling of the price of gasoline; and increased medical insurance premiums which Obamacare was supposed to reduce but which Congress had to pass before they could read it. Yes, Obama would even beat former President Carter in the contest to become “Queen for a Day.”
President Obama should admit, although conditions are extremely tough, ultimately he was elected to solve problems, not make them worse and certainly not continuing his 2012 campaign to blame others as to why they still persist.
