You’d think by now that President Obama would have learned not to make promises he can’t keep. You’d also think that Americans would have learned not to trust a man who doesn’t keep his promises.
Yet, here we are, well into Obama’s second term with a laundry list of broken promises and failures. Even still, there’s a baffling number of Americans who remain infatuated with the President. They say love conquers all, but when it comes to people who are love-struck by President Obama, their obsession is really only blinding them to the truth.
Consider the economy: It sucks.
The month of July saw only 162,000 jobs added— 23,000 less than predicted. The unemployment rate is at a dismal 7.4%, and we’re becoming a nation of part-time workers thanks to Obamacare.
The national deficit is through the roof at more than $16 trillion, with President Obama showing little effort to bring spending under control.
Remember the stimulus package that was supposed to “cut the deficit in half by the end of [his] first term in office” and put “our nation on sound fiscal footing”? Yeah, it didn’t work, either, and it’s just evidence of one of the President’s broken promises.
In 2009, Obama said, “If I don’t have this done in three years, then there’s going to be a one-term proposition.” The President said it himself; if he didn’t turn the economy around in his first term, it’d probably be his only term. Unfortunately, Obama’s lovesick followers wouldn’t settle for a one-term Obama presidency.
The economy isn’t the Obama administration’s only letdown. Obama’s foreign policy decisions are a complete failure. Take a look at Iran, Israel, Syria, Egypt, Iraq, Afghanistan… I could go on.
Since Obama became president, America’s standing in the Middle East has weakened. Even the Middle East Media Research Institute gets it: “[We must conclude that] this is not a skilled statesman and politician with creative solutions, but an ordinary academic who repeats meaningless slogans and does not possess the political sensitivity to give each factor the weight it deserves, to take bold [action] when necessary and to refrain [from action] when necessary.”
President Obama treats the world like it’s his playground, and has attempted to make friends with the leaders of other countries. President Obama should take a note from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu: “Things that affect our fate, our very existence, we don’t entrust to others – not even to our best friends.”
Now isn’t the time to be friendly. It’s time for President Obama to show an interest in protecting Americans at home and overseas.
Let’s not forget the President’s failures on upholding the U.S. Constitution. The Obama Administration has created a political culture that ignores individual liberties, especially those that involve a right to privacy.
This same culture disregards the limited power a president actually has under the Constitution. I’m convinced President Obama will do virtually whatever it takes to further his political liberal agenda, and his contempt for the Constitution is evidence of that.
You see, President Obama’s failures far outnumber his accomplishments. His failures don’t end with the economy, foreign policy, or the Constitution. I haven’t even mentioned his tax increases, the increase in people on welfare, his phony scandals, Benghazi, or Obamacare…
When do his followers quit singing his praises and take note of his failures? Seriously, when does the madness end?
