I was born in 1946, which means that during my lifetime 11 men have been president of the United States. There are only a couple that I would want to have as my next-door neighbor. That goes for Republicans as well as Democrat Presidents. But there are only two of them, Carter and Obama, whom I regard as all-out disasters for this country. It took Jimmy Carter four years as president and 29 years out of office to acquire his greatly deserved recognition as useless, a fake and a sanctimonious anti-Semite, but Obama has pulled the same thing off in just a few short months. He has managed this by showing his overall incompetence by surrounding himself with clowns like Joe Bidden ( You know who I mean,”tell another lie, Put your foot in your mouth Joe”); the seriously corrupt politicians, such as Bill Richardson and Tom Daschle; and too many other tax cheats to list in this small space that is available to me.  You know the ones I mean, the ones who want you to do as they say, but not as they do.

Obama has also proven himself to be a person who does not tell the truth of such great proportions that if he had started out life like Pinocchio, his nose by this time would stretch from the east coast to the west coast, from sea to shining sea. He has fibbed about everything from hardly knowing Bill Ayers at all, to never listening to a Jeremiah Wright lengthy messages on hate America, from saying he will get rid of pork and lobbyists to providing transparency and change we can all believe in. What happen to all those promises of "yes we can?" On top of all that, while spouting the usual political talk which is really nothing about economizing and saving the environment, he had the largest, most expensive inauguration in history (There was none no bigger.) and from the way he and his band of liberal news reporters jet around on the fuel-guzzling Air Force One, you’d think he was a rock star, another Elvis. All of that would be no more or less than business as usual, Washington style, if he weren’t also working overtime at the same time to bankrupt the country and turn America into a socialist state just like Castro’s Cuba.  He is turning our country from a Republic, a free nation of laws, to a socialist state where every part of our lives will be controlled by the government.

The distressing and unbelievable part of all this is that so many Americans continue to believe him and applaud him. They think he is doing a great job.Those of us who are opposed to the things he is doing are accused of hoping America fails or we are a racist or we are an extremist.  Nothing, of course, could be further from the truth. What we, as hard working tax paying citizens, are hoping for is that The United States of America can somehow survive this assault on our freedoms by this administration, and that our economic system and our freedoms can remain basically intact in spite of the combined efforts of Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Frank, Dodd and Geithner (Pinocchio's Helpers), to destroy it. Boy what a scary team. They are doing their best to destroy this nation. Rome burns as the fiddler plays.

When I hear people in and out of the media, (who should get down on their knees and thank God or at least their ancestors if they do not believe in God that they were lucky enough to be born in America) spouting off left-wing insults about this country really upset me.. Why would , I will never know, so many of my fellow countrymen be so utterly convinced that Barack Obama is the messiah. The great one. They think (with the liberal medias help) he can do no wrong, but yet he has done nothing right. He has promised change and we are getting that. He has kept that promise. But what is the change? He is taking us down the road to a socialist controlled government that will control every part of your life. There is no part of our society today that is not already heavily influenced by government. Think about that for a minute and see if I’m not right. Now he is putting more government control in place. More control means less freedom.

Obama’s great  stimulus package, contained millions of dollars that has already been spent on things other than to create jobs. So I would ask: “Where is the change?” It looks like to me it is business as usual in Washington. The stimulus bill was supposed to be about jobs, but it’s gone off the tracks in  no time at all. It’s quickly turning into a picture of everything that is wrong with  our government. That  includes unchecked spending, no accountability for what the government does with our tax dollars, and total disregard for what they should and were elected to do. So where is the change that you continually promised Mr. President when you were campaigning and spewing out “Change and yes we can, transparency in government?” It looks like, to me, it is business as usual. Middle-class families and small businesses across the United States are pulling in their belts and making sacrifices every day during this very hard time for our country. My question is why aren’t you, Mr. President, and your congress doing the same thing instead of having the same old business as usual?

In just 100 days of Obama taking office we have a spending package and deficit that is greater than all the other presidents combined. Just think about that. Trillions of dollars that will have to be paid back by future generations if this country last that long. So there was a change and it was not a good one. How are we as Americans benefiting from this “yes we can change” that you are making? You are suppose to be making things better not worse.

For what ever the reason, now that the president has fired the CEO and taken over General Motors, do you suppose it will now be called Presidential Motors, and that Cadillac, Buick and Chevrolet, will be re-named Michelle Motors? No pun intended.  More government control will never help a country get better. It is like Ronald Regan said: “THE GOVERNMENT IS NOT THE ANSWER TO THE PROBLEM, GOVERNMENT IS THE PROBLEM!”  How right he was when he made that statement. Which reminds me, I think that it’s still nothing but a rumor that Obama fired God earlier this week, claiming that the universe isn’t big enough for both of them. You should never listen to rumors even from people who say: Yes we can, or change, or transparency in government because like I say most of the time they are not true even when they come from Saint Obama.
