The United States economy is battered and drifting after 4 years of President Obama’s failed leadership. This politics of class warfare, fear, division and character assassination has been the dominant theme of President Obama's failed presidency. The U.S. economic problems are too grave. This country needs strong leadership.
The Presidents running for re-election, run on their records. Not President Obama . Why not? Instead, team Obama has mounted a relentlessly negative campaign. Forget “Hope and Change.” This time around it’s “Fear and Smear.”
U.S. has a +$16.2 trillion deficit and Obama has about a $6 trillion deficit and increasing an average of $3.85 billion debt per day. President Obama promise to cut annual federal budget deficits in half by the end of his term. The unemployment is above 8 % for 44 months, despite the nearly $6 trillion dollar in new Obama's debt.
U.S. has record high foreclosures, record high loss of median family income and twenty three million Americans are not able to find jobs or are underemployed. A record 5.4 million workers and their dependents that have signed up to collect federal disability since President Obama took office.
President Obama supports the institutional redistribution of wealth in the USA. President Obama's taxing of the rich plan won't solve the deficit. President Obama could confiscate the entire wealth of America's top 400 wealthiest people ($1.7 trillion dollars) and it wouldn't put much of a dent in our +$16.2 trillion deficit.
President Obama's proposed solution to reducing the deficit, "tax the rich" plan will only fund the government for about 8 days.
U.S. lost its perfect AAA credit rating and the U.S slips to number 7 in global competitiveness for business environment under Obama. The U.S Nation's National Security facing traumatic repercussions from Obama's policies. The U.S Southern border is a sieve, open as a gateway to the most violent criminals.
During his first two years President Obama had a Democratic-controlled House and Senate to pass any plan or idea to help the economy. Instead, he made his overriding priority not job creation but the radical transformation of this country’s health care system.
The government takeover of health care, if left in place, will deprive millions of Americans of their present health insurance and degrade the quality of care provided for all of us. President Obama's preferred model is socialized medicine is along the lines of socialist countries.
President Obama seems fundamentally out of touch with most mainstream Americans and sees main street America as something to be scolded. President Obama routinely villanizes the private sector and pushes policies that punish hard working Americans. As he chided successful Americans this summer, “You didn’t build that!”.
President Obama's administration's ludicrous assertion that an obscure YouTube video in California sparked anti-American riots across the Middle East on Sept. 11 has now been proven a deliberate falsehood.
And when a U.S. ambassador was murdered in the line of duty for the first time in 33 years, President Obama’s response was to jet to Las Vegas to party at a fat-cat fundraiser. The cruel murders of the ambassador and three other Americans that day? Just a couple of “bumps in the road,” Obama said.
President Barack Obama promised to "unify a divided nation", has never happened. Obama has been nothing like the healer-in-chief he promised to be in 2008 election. Early on he took the low road, inflaming resentments, demonizing his critics, and, yes, pitting red Americans against blue Americans. President Obama's defenders argue that he had no choice, going negative was his only option.
President Obama was going to unite the country, but all he has done is divide and pit one group against another. He pits the rich against the poor, blacks against whites, old against young, workers against management, unions against companies, and home owners against bank.
