Reasons To Fire Obama
October 19, 2012 2 Comments
According to President Obama when four Americans get killed it’s “not optimal.” This our President said on Comedy Central. Words cannot even begin to express how callous this statement is. Not to be outdone, Joe Biden decided to get on the callous bandwagon. He told a group of Democrats that House Republicans “have their bullets aimed at you.” Because of course Republicans want to kill everyone who disagrees with them. It’s obvious isn’t it? Desperation seems to be setting in for Obama and his campaign. Obviously during a long campaign odd things are going to be said by both candidates. But calling the killing of four Americans “not optimal” is pretty dreadful.
Bill Clinton clearly isn’t happy that President Obama threw Hillary under the bus for the “not optimal” deaths of four Americans in Benghazi. As such, he threw Obama under the bus at a campaign event wherein he basically agreed with the premise of the Romney campaign. Clinton agrees that things aren’t better off under Obama, he so much as acknowledges that Mitt Romney is right. Clinton has pulled this stunt before, saying positive things about Romney before walking them back. My guess is that he doesn’t walk these comments back. Why should he? Obama has already thrown Hillary under the bus and it doesn’t serve the Clinton’s anything politically to save Obama.
At Tuesday’s debate Obama was set up with a softball question about equal pay for women. I tire of these “women’s” issues as though women are only interested in babies and faux equality issues. There isn’t a frilly pink politics just for women. In any event, Obama brags about the largely meaningless Lilly Ledbetter equal pay law. What Obama didn’t tell us and what Romney foolishly didn’t point out is that Obama pays women in his White House 18% less then men. More than one woman coming out of the Obama White House has complained about discrimination. So while Obama is pointlessly demanding equal pay in the private sector, when he has the opportunity to lead the way with equal pay he chooses not to.
Welfare has soared 32% over the last four years. The total cost of welfare is now over $1 trillion annually. For every $7 the Federal government has taken in under Obama the government has spent $11. The problem here is that for the last four years the economy hasn’t gotten any better. If the economy had picked up the Feds would have taken in more in tax revenue and spent less on welfare. It’s not like Obama has added welfare programs, with the exception of Obamacare. Certainly over the last two years he hasn’t been able to pass anything. The problem is the economy, which Obama has failed to turn around. His policies just haven’t worked. As a result, welfare rates have soared, we spent $1 trillion annually on welfare and we spend $11 for every $7 of tax revenue. Obama has failed.
One final thought. We’re going to hear a lot over the last couple weeks how it would be racist to fire the first black President. Let me offer a different perspective. Considering what a failure this President has been, it would be racist not to fire him. A sure sign of equality is when we’re willing to hire someone on their merits and then fire them if they don’t do a good job. Obama was, for all intents and purposes, hired on his merits. He’s failed to turn the economy around, he should be fired. If we don’t fire him because we fear being called racists, that itself is racist. If we would fire any other President for doing a poor job, Obama should be treated no different. We fired Carter, we fired Bush 41. Why should we be afraid to fire Obama?
