Obama has floated the campaign slogan of Forward despite its obvous Socialistic origins. My question is forward towards what? Moving forward with over 8 percent unemployment? Moving forward towards less workforce participation? Moving forward towards unsustainable deficits? Moving forward towards unconsitutional legislation? Moving forward towards legalizing illegal immigration? Moving forward towards less home ownership? Moving forward towards gretaer government involvement in our daily lives? Moving foward towards less freedoms?
With all of these questions surrounding the Obama administration, one would have thought perhaps a different slogan than forward would have been used. The 2010 elections should have been informative to this adminsitration if only to show them Americans had a deire to slow down the government advancement on our freedoms. Americans choked at the idea that Obama and his enablers on the left were taking away American freedom in the name of social justice. We are a resourceful nation that up to now won't accept failure. However, if Obama is reelected we will become a nation that accepts failure. We will become a Nation that accepts defeat and realize that we are a Nation in decline.
Under Obama his one time $800 billion stimulus became part of the normal government spending in the following years. Under Obama we had the first trillion dollar annual deficit and he has never had a budget that reduces below a trillion dollars a year. Obama is fond of blaming Bush for the recession but it is Obama that has failed to get us out of the ditch. See Obaam always claimed it was Bush and the Republicans that drove us into the ditch and that it was him that was going to get us out of the ditch. Yet, here we sit three years into Obama's reign and we still have 8.2% unemployment. Three years in and the housing market still hasn't found the bottom. Three years and we still haven't moved forward an inch toward recovery. One quarter we did have good growth in excess of 4%. Then we went backwards again to a growth rate that can't keep up with population growth. Under Obama our individual wealth has declined. Currently we have almost 50% of the people not paying taxes yet, this President has divided the nation along class lines and expects the biggest producers to give Obama even more of their hard earned income.
Three years with no results. Obama tries to claim the hero mantle by taking credit for Osama Bin Laden. Obama may have looked more of a hero had he shown modesty and gave credit to the Seals who conducted the operation. Obama single handed made what should have been a positive into an actual negative. Being humble is not one of the President's character traits. True heroes will always downplay their role and give credit to the others that made their feat seem the only way possible. Real heroes don't divide a Nation, they heal a nation. Real heroes don't need to take credit fore credit will be foisted upon them. Real heroes don't blame others for their failures, they accept responsibility and move twords fixing the problem. Real heroes and leaders understand that moving forward is not the best way to get out of the ditch.
See to get out of the ditch one need to take their foot off the pedal and let the car come to rest. Rather than spin the wheels digging us in deeper and deeper a leader would have assessed the situation and perhaps move the car backwards towards more solid footing and then accelerated out of the ditch. See just moving forward will only get us farther away from the road and deeper into the muck. I can't believe the president doesn't understand that accelerting into the ditch will only make it that much harder to get out. See anyone with a 4 wheel drive understands that the only time 4 wheel drive's have an imapct on getting out of the ditch is if they are in 4 wheel drive to begin with. Using four wheel drive and accelerating after the fact only makes the situation worse. I certainly don't want to continue down the path of misery. I want my children to have an opportunity to excel. Obama is moving on down the path of decline is that the path forward the Ntion wants to move?
