OK, have at it ...
He promised to cut the deficit in half. Instead, he racked up the largest deficit in history.
He promised to go line-by-line through the budget and cut out some of our runaway unnecessary spending. Not only did he not do it, he never pushed Congress to put forth a budget. We’ve gone more than 3 years without a budget. I know it’s not his responsibility directly, but he, as our nation’s CEO is ultimately responsible for everything that goes on within it.
He refuses to take responsibility for anything. Granted, Bush was a crappy president in a lot of ways, but nothing is Obama’s fault. It was Bush. Or the weather. Or ATMs. Quit whining and put on your big boy pants.
He’s aligned himself with the most extreme of the left. A perfect example is the prosecution, or lack thereof of the members of the NBPP. And look, here we are 4 years later, and they’re still up to their old tricks. How would it be viewed if those folks were wearing white hoods and doing the same thing? Both are equally reprehensible. And George Soros. Obama screams about how big money taints our elections, yet one of his most ardent supporters is a multi-billionaire who has made his money in some of the most despicable, disgraceful and unprincipled ways imaginable. He made a billion dollars nearly destroying the British economy. Why wouldn’t I think he’s hoping to do the exact same thing with ours?
How ‘bout Fast and Furious? Dead border patrol agents and hundreds of dead Mexican civilians, and no one says a word.
Or Benghazi? Four Americans dead. He looks the other way.
He panders to the Hispanic population while deporting a record number…right up to the point where he decides that it’s not in his political interest, so he suddenly offers asylum.
For a “constitutional professor” (and for the record, he wasn’t) he sure doesn’t seem to know a whole lot about the constitution. Or he does, and just doesn’t care. He screamed bloody murder whenever Bush issued an Executive Order as an end-run around established procedure, but yet he’s issued more than 135 in less than four years.
He ordered the killing of a US citizen without a trial. I find that chilling. Now…the dude that died was an evil, rotten, terrible human, and given the chance, I myself would’ve gladly put a bullet in his brain. But I’m not the President.
I know lying is a common practice among politicians. But I still don’t find it acceptable.
And as someone who has sworn to support and defend The Constitution, it turns my stomach to have someone trample all over it.
He’s taken money from my pocket, and given billions of it to donors/supports like Solyndra, Beacon Power, Ener1 or Abound Solar, all of whom have either failed, are failing or have filed for bankruptcy.
I read “Dreams From My Father,” and it’s very, very telling. If you haven’t read it, you should. Whether Obama’s a Marxist/Socialist/Communist/whatever is a completely different discussion, but there’s no debate whether his father was, and within his own writings, it was at his father’s grave that he “realized who he was.”
His entire career has been a wisp of smoke. He talks a great line, but there’s nothing really there. His last campaign was “Hope and Change.” And a lot of people bought into the dream, only to find that it was just a line. Now he’s suggesting people vote for him as an act of revenge.
That’s just pathetic.
