Community Organizer Barack Hussein Obama released his first book about himself in 1995, titled Dreams from My Father, as publicity to launch his Senatorial campaign. The book has only recently received any scrutiny, and reveals a very disturbing ideology and series of life choices in the form of socialist associations and heavy drug use of the would-be leader.
Obama’s second book about himself, The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream, was then written and released by Senator Barack Hussein Obama, as publicity to launch his presidential campaign. The reader quickly learns that Obama’s version of the American Dream is much different than that of the average American.
The promises made to the American people in Obama’s campaigns turn out to bear no resemblance to his actions in office: There would be no rise in taxes for anyone under $250,000 per year, Obamacare would not raise the cost of health care and those who preferred their own plan would not lose it. Also, Gitmo would be closed and the wars in the middle east would be turned off like a spigot. Or here’s a good one . . . his administration would be the most transparent of any, and the partisan rhetoric would end. Even now, Obama is stumping on the promise that he will reach out across the aisle and work with republicans if re-elected. How about this one—Obama would cut the federal deficit in half!? He actually doubled it!
In fact, of all of the promises made by candidate Obama, Pulitzer Prize winning Politifact.com of the Tampa Bay Times demonstrates that he has reneged on two-thirds.
No doubt, many of the broken campaign promises were leftist pipe-dreams and would be devastating to the country, and with thankful hearts we recognize that President Obama got a taste of reality on several fronts once he took office, and began to see the world from a more realistic viewpoint, carrying on many of the policies of the Bush administration, notwithstanding the venomous denunciation of those policies by Obama and the left beforehand.
The fact remains, however, that Obama is an ideologue, and his political thinking is much different than that of most American’s, and completely the opposite of the founders of our nation.
Notwithstanding his adoption of some less radical paths once in office, Obama has still been guilty of ignoring the will of the American people on several issues, and has comported himself more like a ruler in many regards, than a public servant—as he was elected to be.
The administration has refused to accept responsibility for its many failures and shortcomings, and has stonewalled congressional attempts to get at the heart of corruption and unlawful activities in Eric Holder’s Department of Justice as well as other agencies under the administration. The way the president and his entire administration ignored the pleas for help from our ambassador in Benghazi, then watched live video feed of their 7 hour massacre by known al Qaeda activists, then lied to the American people for more than 2 weeks to convince them that Obama had personally killed off al Qaeda is only the latest episode in the president’s arrogance and disrespect of the American people.
As a result of 4 years of autocratic rule, Obama’s loss of personal likeability in the polls and Mitt Romney’s emergence as a likeable, competent business genius has rendered the 2012 election up for grabs.
The misinformation and corruption of Obama’s 4 year presidency is crumbling around him as the Greek columns that ushered in his presidency have turned to sand and tens of millions of victims have suffered horrifically at the hands of his leftist policies. Poverty levels have skyrocketed and 23,000,000 Americans are looking for work, all while promised economic expansion resulting from gargantuan spending bills have failed to produce a single net job.
Democratic attempts to paint GOP challenger Mitt Romney as a greedy, uncaring man out of touch with common Americans melted before the flames of reality during the RNC and first presidential debate, and Obama’s significant leads among women and other groups have disappeared. Within the past few weeks polls have swung in Romney’s favor, and much of America finds itself on its knees in prayer for a change of leadership on Tuesday. The choice between socialism and capitalism has never been clearer in a presidential election, and we can only add our voices to those offering up prayers for Mitt Romney today that America will return to its traditional path of personal liberty and the prosperity that attends it.
You may recall President Obama’s famous interview with Matt Lauer on “Today” on February 1, 2009 (we’ve inserted the video below), just after taking office as he asked the congress for his first economic stimulus package—nearly $900 billion.
Lauer: At some point will you say ‘Wait a minute. We’ve spent this amount of money; we’re not seeing the results. We’ve got to change course dramatically.’
Obama: Look, I’m at the start of my administration. One nice thing I find about the situation I find myself in is that I will be held accountable. I’ve got four years. A year from now people are going to see that we’re starting to make some progress, but there’s still going to be some pain out there. If I don’t have this done in three years then there’s going to be a one term proposition.
A one term proposition indeed. Let it be so.
