Even after defeating Osama Bin Laden, the lackluster recovery from America's recession, the economy, and the rising debt are having their tolls on President Obama
During the 2008 campaign, there was great hope for a leader who could show leadership and integrity, and take America out of the failed Bush and Republican policies that got us into this economic disaster.
After two and a half years of being President, Obama is not showing leadership and delivering on his promises. He promised hope and change, and campaigned heavily to end the failed Bush regime. Today the richest millionaires are still enjoying the Bush tax cuts geared toward them, everyone else is further impoverished, unemployment is still high, the recession lingers, and the deficit is out of control.
Obama's weakness is that he is not standing up to the right-wingers. His whole career so far is about caving into the Republican's demands and failing to carry out his own campaign promises. And what about all those young voters who voted for him
and delivered a strong victory? Obama neglects them. When in comes to the ecomony, all Obama is ever focused on is Social Security and Medicare. No mention about college or education, or tackling the high tuition costs, or little promise of providing jobs to college graduates. With this outlook, why would the young voters come out to vote for Obama in 2012?
Obama promised to end the failed policies of the Bush regime, but in reality he is only imitating Bush. So how is this going to fare for him in 2012? Not too well.
But if the Republicans win in 2012, it gives them the opportunity to do what they do best, to further decimate their own kind. That's something Obama can't do.Storms, tornados, floods wash away Sailer's bogus affordable family foundation theoryGulf oil spill breaks the recordRural red states facing the harshest brunt of rising gas pricesAn Illustrated Guide to Republican ScandalsMore losses for the red midwestern statesRed State vs. Blue State battle: Suicide ratesSailer's "Affordable Family Foundation" plan is bogus
