Great article, Chuck. I just don't get how- despite hard facts- people still think this guy has the average American's best interests in mind. Apparently, recorded video of his false "promises" and the indisputable numbers on unemployment, housing foreclosures and the national debt mean nothing to these folks. All he's done is unconstitutionally rammed Obamacare down our throats, while making big corporations richer. And to top things off, those corporations are thumbing their noses at all of us.
My "perspective" is based on facts that we all total access to. These numbers paint a clear and accurate picture of where we are now vs four years ago, and the results are indisputable: unemployment is still over 8 %, thousands of homes are being foreclosed on daily, and Obama violated the Constitution by enacting the socialist "Obamacare" before it could be voted on. I'll never understand your blind faith in this guy anymore than I can fathom why a battered wife defends her husband.
Yeah, and those "older white" Americans and their parents are the ones who built this country and made it great. When a relative nobody strolls into office and immediately starts writing out checks that we all pay for, to the tune of 5 TRILLION so far, that should be cause for alarm in anyone who understands economics. Funny how he aimed for the lowest common denominator in this country by building a campaign on one simple word: change. Sadly, the uneducated masses didn't get that the word "change"- by itself- is ambiguous. He brought "change" as promised- for the worse. Why can't Obama voters just admit they got conned?
"I think he's done a pretty good job considering the difficult position he is in". Well, you need to raise your standards. He claimed he was the right man for the job and so far he has failed at just about everything. If anyone else performed as poorly on the job- or even made things worse as Obama has- they would be fired immediately. Yes, he made things worse. Unemployment, foreclosures and a stagnant economy are still here in full glory... the difference is, now we're 5 trillion further in the whole. I bet there are tons of cults out there who'd love to get their hooks into you and your ilk.
If everyone thought like "good old Chuck", we'd be in a lot better place. Half of Obama's votes came from undereducated minorities who simply wanted one of their own in office for a change. That's why, despite his easily provable and indisputably horrible results, they keep chanting "all hail Obama". I guess the Equal Opportunity Act probably should not have been applied to the most important job in the world. Foolish sheep.
I guess facts have no place in your logic. "...enacting policies you disagree with is "government running amok." Perhaps other voters disagree with you, which is why Obama is in office in the first place." A) Increasing the National debt by 50% in 3.5 years IS running amok. B) A "stimulus" package that failed on every level- except to make big biz richer- is running amok. C) How are the banks thanking us? By giving record bonuses to CEOs, foreclosing on everyone they can, and even pizzing away 2 billion on a foolish gamble (JP Morgan). That IS running amok. Pull your head out of the sand and read an economics book.
