‘He’s taking away our Constitutional Rights.’ Say what? ‘He’s taking on too much at once.’ Yeah, look at the mess he was left with. ‘Obama is ruining this country.’ That’s funny, ’cause as I remember it, the country was ruined before he became president.
What’s funny is, Bush was the one listening in on your phone calls, checking your bank accounts, watching your use of computers in libraries, as well as your selection of books. He also made it possible to call an American citizen an enemy combatant taking away the right to Habeas Corpus. Frisking and undressing you at airports, limiting goods you can take on a plane. He made it possible for government agents to enter your home without a warrant, when you’re not home and not notify you they were there – without FISA oversight.
HOW? THE PATRIOT ACT! What a misnomer, ’cause there was nothin’ patriotic about it. It’s not like Americans were behind 9/11. 14 of the terrorists were from Saudi Arabia, yet the American people were the one’s scrutinized, while our illustrious leader was holding hands with the Saudi leader. The right to privacy was not considered Constitutional. So my question is, What rights has President Obama taken away?
At the town hall meetings on healthcare you often hear that said, but no one asks the critic, WHICH RIGHTS HAS HE TAKEN? Without the answer, it’s an empty statement.
Being a multi-tasker paid off tremendously for Obama during the presidential campaign. He’s the first president we’ve ever had that is technologically savvy allowing him to address many things at once. Being well aware of those things that eat up our budget each year – healthcare, two wars, giant defense budget, energy, social security. These are areas of reform due to their unbearable costs.
Unfortunately, time moves on and we can’t sit still. We have an infra-structure in serious need of repair, we need to recognize the pertinence of manufacturing our food, shelter, clothing, drugs, energy and military equipment, with a vision of the future that will produce good paying jobs here at home.
It’s said, THE PUBLIC HAS A SHORT MEMORY! And it seems that the people have forgotten President George Bush and the Republican Party sold you out of your good paying jobs so that business could take advantage of so-called FREE TRADE! It wasn’t fair trade though.
But on top of that, this same group took away the last thing Americans had that propped up Bush’s lousy economic policies – their homes. THESE ARE THE FOLKS WHO RUINED OUR COUNTRY, not the community organizer who is trying, currently, to repair it.
Be thankful our President is a multi-tasker because a president without that talent would be overwhelmed! AMERICA’S BEEN DUMBED DOWN! LET’S NOT DO THIS TO OUR PRESIDENT OUT OF FEAR AND IGNORANCE!
QUESTION EVERYTHING! THAT’S WHERE THE TRUTH RESIDES.
