Has Obama Earned Our Votes? - Page 2
Well we have stimulus, Obamacare, massive spending and more new regulations than any time in our history. Yet when Ronald Reagan took office he inherited a larger economic mess than Obama. He got us out of it in less than two years by allowing we the people to take control. I wish the last four years went the same way. As one who is in business I can assure you the massive regulation ie. Dodd-Frank, are devastating. Further more worrisome is that they end up harming those most in need. But capitalism has unique properties and the ingenious citizens of this nation usually find a way to work around our problems and eventually we re emerge.
To foreign policy. This Libyan problem breaks my heart. An absolute tragedy which was avoidable. The middle east is problematic and Putin is trying to take over again. I maintain foreign policy to be very suspect at this point. Israel and Iran on a powder keg. No healing.
But for me, the worst part of the President is his arrogance and apparent aloofness in dealing with dead soldiers and Ambassadors. Be true if you saw him on the John Stewart show. Even John was shocked. Truly chilling. The man seems to always have time for parties and golf. But word is he has not spoken to security advisers in months. Is he AWOL? Looks it to me. His presidency seems a four year campaign. Reports from his inner circle confirm this and many dare not speak of opposing policy ideas or incur his wrath.
His prime constituents seem to be the most harmed under his policies. They love him none the less. Very well. I personally find it hard to detect any leadership skills whatsoever. Great at the blame game. Unseemly. That is my opinion and I wear no ideological blinders. It is what I see.
So now we have the sad tragedy of a 100 year storm. And he said no agency should let any rules or regulations block the clean up. If only he said that the day he took office. We might be growing at 5% and creating 500,000 jobs a month which is what we need. He obviously knows over regulation is a negative for growth as he just gave the go ahead for same today. Four years too late? We will know next Tuesday.
