When Obama was running for President I was positive that I wouldn't vote for him and that the American people would see through his flaky movie star appeal and think of him as a candidate and not a celebrity, but amidst the flash of the cameras and the butt kissing of the media, somehow our country overlooked his obvious political flaws.
Although I was rather saddened by his win in the election, I couldn't hide my excitement about what this new president being in office meant for me. I was going to get all my debt paid off, I'd never have to pay a house payment, I'd never have to get a job, and Obama would even put gas in my car. Seriously though I would at least have hoped he could have helped the economy a bit, or is it too much to ask for to have an upstanding honest politician for once? Unfortunately, he has done the exact opposite.
He lied to the Pope, of all people, saying that he would do everything he could to decrease the abortion rate. Ha, does he mean like funding foreign countries abortions, maybe he meant how he has passed laws to negate the barriers previously set up to restrict abortions, or I'm sure he meant how he is trying to make it legal for a teenage girl to acquire an abortion without her parents knowledge?
He has appointed the most ridiculously crooked people anyone has ever heard of as his cabinet and czars, his treasurer, Martin Nesbitt, has previously bankrupted a company and won't even pay his taxes, His nomination for supreme court justice, Sonia Sotomayor, is obviously racist and can't make a fair judgment to save her life, and the list goes on and on.
His policy regarding the war on terror? Bring the troops home, which is on the same time frame as Bush had for the troops to come home. Since you all hated Bush's policy regarding the war on terror, why haven't we heard a peep from you regarding Obama's policy?
Many people who voted for Obama have since renounced their decision and his approval rating is low and dropping fast. His health care plan is below 50% approval, yet he still seems to be forcing it down America's throat.
He's nearing a year in office, a very short time to have such a low approval rating, and if things keep up the way they're going we only have further to fall. So I have a question to ask.
Are you happy about Obama being president? Are you still happy with the way you voted(whoever you voted for)? Do you think it's going to be a long three and a quarter years?
