Obama sought re-election. He won. He really had no platform to run on and gave no plan to help the American people and our economy. He had nothing to go on. Yet, the majority of Americans seemed to think he would do a good job – I mean, he had done such a fantastic job in his first term, why wouldn’t they? (Sarcasm intended!)
Well, now it’s time to show us what you’ve got, Obama. We realize that you’ve been bluffing this entire time. We know you’ve lied to our faces. We know you don’t have a clue. But, the fact is, you are the President of the United States. What has happened and what will happen for the length of time you are in office will be your legacy. History will judge you by what you do or do not do. Obama, we are teetering on a cliff; a fiscal cliff. Your policies have created an unemployment nightmare, an economy that is disastrous, and you have run off and closed down more small businesses than any other administration in history. And that’s just in your first term!
Your second term will begin shortly, however, on January 2nd – there are several spending cuts and tax increases that are due to be put into place and will all but cripple most Americans – even the ones you deem ‘wealthy’. The fact is a person on welfare now has more disposable income than a family making $60,000 a year. How upside down is that? Mr. Obama, you have rewarded the lazy and those who refuse to work, you have made it easier to be a leech on society than to be a productive member of society. That is NOT what made this country great. That is NOT what will get this country back on the path to economic prosperity.
Sir, you must take some notes from history. You must listen to the great economic minds of our time – Walter E. Williams, Thomas Sowell, even Milton Friedman. We cannot continue on this path. If these spending cuts and tax increases are allowed to become reality, you are dooming the American people to a recession, possibly a depression. It could take months or years to recover and that, sir, is not time we have.
So, here’s what I propose: You nix your 20 day, $4 million dollar vacation to Hawaii (at OUR expense) and sit down with some people who actually know how the economy works and create a real plan. You don’t get to take a vacation while Americans are suffering. You must work. I realize that it’s hard work being President, what with all those fundraisers with Beyoncé and Jay-Z and numerous rounds of golf, but sir, it’s time to do some real work. The clock is ticking. Make a plan, extend tax cuts, get the economy moving again. Your legacy awaits. Will you continue your record of failure and destruction to our economy and infrastructure or will you do something that would actually help this great country and us Americans. We’re waiting.
