I voted for him twice even though I thought he was a lying conman and an enabler/coddler of corporate, environmental and war criminals after his first
four year. Romney's flip-flopping-flipping-again and various statements on his would-be policies made it clear that he likely would have been even
worse. No doubt there will be some who will take issue with the claim, that Romney would be worse, but that's not my delusional problem.
Obama has turned out to be an execrable president. He has lied over and over to the American people, he squander his political capital in the first
two years of his first term, and he has shown himself to be the hardest working Republican in Washington D.C. He and his minions have protect the
Wall Street crooks, the BP crooks, the Bush II regime war criminals, and Obama has continued many of the unconstitutional, illegal and war criminal
activities of the Bush crime family.
The Democratic leadership in the House and Senate has been no better. I'd like a human centipede to be made out of Obama, Reid and Pelosi, and add
on Boehner and O'Connell at the front end just to make it worse for these sell-out DINOs.
I good on on for several pages in an in-depth, item by item criticism of Obama, but what's the point. I will say is my problem with Obama is not an
irrational fear that he is trying to take away people's guns or that he was behind the Benghazi debacle and possibly intended it to happen, or that
he is having the IRS targeting conservative political groups (news flash: the IRS was targeting liberal progressive groups too, and the actual tax law
calls for any and all political groups to be non-exempt).
There are a lot bigger and worse things that he has done or good things he could have done, but didn't. I'll just leave you with my thoughts on his
intuition towards policy: a few months before the Fukushima nuclear disaster, he said that we should look to Japan as a shining example of how the US
should pursue fission power again; and a month or two before the BP Gulf disaster he caved to rightwing cries to open up offshore drilling by allowing
for more such O-S drilling leases to be done. Basically do the opposite of whatever he says is a good idea.
His biggest political mistake was pushing Obama Care when he should have been working on fixing the economy -- in large part via pushing clean energy
(no, not clean coal) and other newer technologies. His stimulus package for shovel-ready highway projects was a joke: all I saw were roads being
repaved, which didn't really need it, when we have bridges collapsing in this country,
The guy is an atrocious president, nearly as bad as Bush II -- and that's saying something. I think Obama will go down in history as one of the top
four worst presidents, along with Bush II, Warren G. Harding and James Buchanan.
Democrats who still give this guy excuses for his polices and ineffective leadership are just political tools.
