Who should I vote for?
Most voters have already made their mind up, so we’re told. How the Left Wing media handed Obama last week’s debate win, moderated by Candy Crowley who interrupted Romney 28 times as compared to Obama’s nine times and who sided with Obama, well, is still mind-boggling. If one still falls into the “undecided” voter, perhaps we need to address a few issues.
Safety. No matter how one feels about George Bush—you know, Obama’s predecessor who keeps getting blamed for all of his mistakes—Bush did keep America and all of our foreign embassies safe after 9/11. Obama can’t tout such a record after Benghazi’s tragic terrorist attack. Not only did Obama lie during the debate but he allowed Rice to make a fool of herself on five talk shows, allowed Hillary to be his scapegoat and allowed the scene of a terrorist attack to be compromised. Obama said in 2008 “The buck stops with me.” He was right. He is ultimately responsible for our safety. In all likelihood over the next four years, under this administration, our safety will be compromised again. Are you willing to accept a rerun of incompetent leadership? Are you accepting of Carney, Rice and Clinton who stood in front of us and deceived us, when former US Ambassador of Libya, Christopher Stevens, warned of security threats in June, August and on September 11, the very day he was killed along with three others?
Are you okay with the countless breaches in our security, unlike what we have ever experienced? Even worse, are you accepting of Obama who will partner with Russia during his next term?
Al Qaeda. Is it okay that Al Qaeda has expanded to regions of the world where it wasn’t even in just a mere two years ago? Do you understand that Obama unconstitutionally took us into Libya? Is it okay that Obama has never answered to the Fort Hood terrorist attack as being that?
Global Taxation. Is it okay that Obama and Clinton want the UN to redistribute nations’ wealth by global taxation—when we are already contributing 22% of the UN budget?
Financial Crisis. Are you okay with our financial crisis? Are you okay with another government bailout that will prove of no value to our economy, a stimulus that may cost the American people another $317,000 per job to create? Are you okay that the Obama administration has held dozens of meetings with Mexican officials about food stamps for illegals, the number now at 1.6M? Is it okay that our government spent $1.03T on welfare last year, a 32% increase, the government’s largest expenditure? Do you understand that Dodd-Frank will be an utter disaster? Are you okay that 5.5M women are now unemployed in our country? Are you okay with this inept leader who says that he’d rather drive the country off the fiscal cliff into recession rather than agree to an extension of the Bush tax cuts?
Silence. Are you okay with the fact that we are paying for abortions—domestically and abroad—even when it’s against some of our religious beliefs? Are you accepting of all the costly damage the occupiers have caused our country?
Our Veterans. Is it okay that our Vets have been so ostracized by this administration that they are having difficulty finding work after returning home (in September, 6.7% are out of work) and that their claims are backlogged?
Medical Care. Is it okay that Obamacare will destroy the best medical care system in the world, that excellent doctors will leave the profession, that unconstitutional restrictions will be enforced and that our healthcare decisions will be compromised—all while this administration has missed 60% of its rule-making deadlines?
Failures. Is it okay that this President is appearing on The View and David Letterman when our country is in crisis mode? Are you okay with the Fast & Furious debacle, the GM failure, the Solyndra $528M in failed stimulus loans, the TSA “security” joke to the American people, the failed banking bailout, that drilling permits have declined by 37%, that oil production is down 14% in our country and our national violent crime rate is the highest in two decades (18%)?
Transparency? Atrocious inability to lead? Willful ignorance? Fallacious assertions? Have we witnessed amateur hour that has grown old and the pixie dust that keeps falling from the cloudy sky really isn’t magical?
As the patriotic Lou Dobbs said, “We better get a lot tougher and a lot smarter…and soon.”
