The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America.

It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their President." Not my words, but well said!

Honesty, integrity, responsibility, and a work ethic are gone, replaced by simple greed and selfishness. Not a recent development either.

Disbelief is the word that defines the Republican state of mind in the wake of the 2012 re-election of President Barack Obama.

The obvious questions are: “How can Americans have re-elected a president who has presided over an economy where unemployment still hovers at 8 percent ?”

And, “How can Americans have re-elected a president who still doesn’t grasp that his big government policies are what have blocked our economic recovery?”

The Republican Party needs to take responsibility for this disaster.

Nothing in the outcome of this election is a surprise. The realities which produced these election results have...
