Should We Still Have HOPE?
Those of us who had high hopes and voted for President Obama need to take a step back and evaluate what we expected, what we were promised and has President Obama delivered on his words.
Barack Obama is a good man, good father. He has shown us he can deliver soaring speeches and has a charisma that is very enduring. We desperately wish he is successful and accomplishes the goals he set out when campaigning.
Now to the reality of his Presidency. The successful communicator has become a person that is unable to control a message. He allows others to define and determine the direction of the message. Then it becomes an uphill and mostly unsuccessful attempt to get back any control. He has shown that he allows Congress to determine legislation without any direction, parameters or committal.
President Obama is either naïve, receives bad advice, makes bad decisions, or is not decisive. Obama doesn't realize the power of the Presidency. People will not follow you if you back down, vacillate or gives away positions.
President Obama is very confident in himself he has a swagger that shows in his words. President Obama Loses the swagger and the words become hollow because he isn’t willing to stand firm.
We have seen President Obama is willing to throw positions and people under the bus in favor of "bi-partisanship". When he has tried extending his hand, the conservative members of Congress slap him down with the knowledge that he will acquiesce. The American People respect strength, resolve and fighting for what you believe in.
Our Question becomes, Mr. President, What do you really believe in? Words are not enough, speeches solve nothing. President Obama is easily intimidated by Fox News and the conservative radio personalities. What we have is either a tepid Leader or someone who is afraid of the fight.Continued on the next page
