Barack Obama has come out and said that Donald Trump is “woefully unprepared” to be president. Woefully unprepared? Shall we look at another person that was woefully unprepared and what he brought us? I don’t think this guy is qualified to discuss “woefully unprepared” without looking inward before he starts criticizing others.
2008, Iraq was stable and was settling in to a Democracy. Barack Obama turned it into a quandry. He took Egypt and backed a Muslim Brotherhood opponent of Hosni Mubarak. He screwed up the “Russian Reset” because he had an inept Secretary of State. He screwed up and let Russia take over Crimea without anything more than lip service. He’s let Iran develop a nuclear bomb, as long as they did it while he was out of office. He was against Brexit, which passed. He drew lines in the sand over Syria and told us time and time again that Assad was on his way out of power. He’s been wrong on every single event in foreign policy. Not just a little wrong…this is miles off the page.
Internally, we’ve seen a failed domestic illegal policy on immigration. We’ve seen a failed, illegal domestic policy on EPA enforcement of it’s rules. We’ve seen a president that spent almost a trillion dollars on “shovel ready jobs” only to admit later that there were no “shovel ready jobs”…another Democrat lie. The economy has the slowest recovery in history. Blacks (his core constituency) has gone more into poverty than ever before. More people are out of the workforce than ever before. Who went against the Keystone XL Pipeline which would have given the US 20,000 jobs at a time when we were in recession (and some argue we still are…though technically we haven’t been for some time). He’s had the FED keep interest rates at 0% so he could keep the economy creeping along as opposed to falling into not a recession, but a depression. We’ve seen a president who pushed a midnight bill through congress that forced you to buy health insurance, and has cost the American people well over a trillion dollars so far, and is still teetering on the brink of going broke.
The problem with this president is really simple, and I’ve seen it in a lot of areas of life. When you get someone that doesn’t understand the job their doing because they’ve never had a “real job” in their lives, and they’ve never had to actually work with people before, they usually fail. I’ve seen it here in the desert recently. People that are uncomfortable with trying to compromise, thinking they are 100% right all of the time, and failing to realize that there ARE other opinions out there that are actually more valuable than theirs…as well as more correct, get bent out of shape, get frustrated and start doing things that are just plain stupid. We’ve seen that with Obama. He’s not a leader. He’s never led anything in his life. He’s not an executive of any kind, and he doesn’t understand how to work with people. That’s a real problem, and it leads to the failures we’ve seen in his administration over the past 7 1/2 years.
Those failures are something he can just walk away from on January 20th, and tell himself that it’s all George W. Bush’s fault or the Republicans in congress, or the Supreme Court. In truth, it’s his fault. And while he can just walk away and slink back to Hawaii or wherever he’ll end up, We The People will be left with a mess to clean up. It won’t be cheap and it won’t be easy. And this is EXACTLY why an election coming up is so important.
Let me be very clear on this point. I do NOT think Donald Trump is the ideal candidate. And I do NOT think that he is going to solve all of the problems left to him by his predecessor. I DO think he’s going to be more trustworthy than someone that can’t seem to tell the truth even when she’s caught in a lie. I’ve always believed that the cornerstone of ANY relationship whether it’s a president with the country, or you with your spouse, or a mailman to the people he/she delivers the mail to is honesty. If you don’t have honesty, you don’t have a relationship, you’ve got fraud. That’s what we’ve dealt with the last 7 1/2 years, and that’s exactly what we’ll deal with for at least the next four years if Hillary gets elected. I’m not saying Trump has all the answers or even some of the answers. I’m saying he’s MORE of a straight shooter than Hillary. That’s all I’m saying, but it should be enough to make you question your decision if you’re leaning toward Clinton!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
