Let’s look at the issues

We’re in the heat of the political season, so let’s look at some of the real differences between Republicans and Democrats. If you’re undecided, choose sides HERE.

People say how disappointed they are in Obama. My cousin Margaret reminds us of what the President actually promised in that acceptance speech:

“The journey will be difficult. The road will be long. I face this challenge with profound humility, and knowledge of my own limitations. But I also face it with limitless faith in the capacity of the American people. Because if we are willing to work for it, and fight for it, and believe in it, then I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on Earth. This was the moment — this was the time — when we came together to remake this great nation so that it may always reflect our very best selves, and our highest ideals.”

And when folks claim Obama has accomplished nothing and we’re no better off than we were four years ago, remind them of these: The Top 50 Accomplishments according to The Washington Monthly.

As my cousin says: “We and he have not finished our difficult journey. Keep the faith.”

    • Obama is a politician, NOT a leader. He and his cronies couldn’t be more corrupt. Look at the Benghazi cover-up. It is far, far worse than water gate and yet the majority of Americas are completely unaware, since the liberal biased news media doesn’t cover it much if at all. The media crucified Nixon during water gate but letting both Obama and Clinton slide on Benghazi. The buck stops at number 1 and 2, that is Obama and Clinton. Obama lied to all Americans and Clinton lied to congress. Both are impeachable acts. How about the IRS, admitting to profiling citizen’s and auditing them to the tenth degree. All the people in charge were appointed by Obama and that is where the buck stops, with Obama. There is more division amongst race, religion and economic status then there has been since the Civil Rights era. Obama is tearing us apart. “United we stand, divided we fall.”

  5. It is not easy to keep facts about politics short. It is history in the making and therefore complex. One has to dig deep, read numerous and tetious articles from economists, polictical writters, legislators, ect. One also has to really explore both sides of any debate and then take the time to fact check claims from both sides, using several different resources, most especially from the ones that are not funded by either party. With that said, I must point out the white elephant that is standing before you bloggers. Which is this, Obama’s recovery has failed and now we are facing double dip recession. There is plenty of blame to go around, Democrats, Republicans, congress and more. Obama indeed inherited a lousy economy and a housing bubble burst from G.W. Bush however under Obama, the economy has become much worse. Obama has run up the deficit at more the then twice the rate than G.W. Bush did in his TWO terms. Standard and Poors has downgraded the US Debt rating under Obama. Not good, not good at all. Obama is spending $1.50 for every dollar of revenue, again, not good. America simply can not continue to travel down this direction without eventually collapsing. Look to other countries whose economies have collasped, Greece comes to mind. That is exactly what America will face if we don’t get out fiscal house in order. Not only is the debt up to $14 trillion, Obama has no budget plan what so ever. No Budget Plan!!!!
    In the face of economic collaspe nothing else will matter like abortions, education, workers’ unions, clean air, clean water, food and even basic necessities because there will be NO America as we now know it. We will not have anything to even debate about if we let our president bleed this great country dry. The only way we are going to get out of this mess is to heavily rein in on government spending and get every abelbodied American back to work, so they can pay taxes. Doesn’t matter if you are a millionaire or not. We all need to pay our fare share, that means people who are defrauding disibility, or any government entitlement need to stop robiing and sucking off the system. Get a job and contriute so society. Now, I am not talking about people who are truely, really and most honestly disabled or impoverished. Those are the very people that entitlements are intended for. People who are abusing the system are taking benefits from those that are legitimately in need. They are bankrupting the entitlements and a government that turns a blind eye or worse promises to continuously take from the rich to give it to anyone, indiscriminately is fianacially AND morally bankrupting America. Although Obamas’ millionaire status pales in comparrision to Romney’s, he is, still a millionaire and I can only wonder why Barack Obama does not financially help out his very own, very poor half brother. It is hard for me to beleive that Obama who claims to care so much about “We the People” when he most certainly does not even care for his own brother.

  6. Reasons that Obama didn’t deserve to be re-elected, The National Debt (Will Obama borrow more money from China?) The Economy, (the upper class who have had enough money to weather the horrible economy over the last four yrs.may not realize how devastating it has been for the middle class and below, people that have lost their jobs, their homes to foreclosure, their hope for the future and their children’s future. Many are outraged over the hideous way Obama has ducked, dodged, stalled, misled and most likely lied about the killings of four American citizens including Ambassador Stevens at the Libyan Embassy. Shame, Shame, Shame. Obama promised transparency, he is anything but.
    Why is it that after both Obama elections, the stock market has crashed?????
    Obama has had the biased, partisan media behind him all the way. They simply are not practicing and reporting factual journalism. Obama is iconic, like a rock star, like the Pied Piper and 1/2 of the American citizens are following him to the end of the earth, right of the cliff, the financial cliff. At that point subjects like abortion, gay marriage, and pot smoking we matter not ONE iota. Too bad that so many of you voted on these selfish issues instead of looking at the much bigger picture (saving our country.) If America doesn’t get our fiscal house in order SOON we all going to be facing very disastrous times ahead. Hold on people, it’s going to be a very bumpy ride ahead. God Bless America.
