I cannot blindly stick my head in the sand. We are no longer respected around the world. The economy is terrible. The rich have made more money under Obama than any other President, and there are more people on public assistance than ever before. Blaming Bush is five years old. Besides, leaders lead, they don’t blame. Obamacare is falling apart. IRS, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, the Veterans scandal – are they Bush’ fault, too? The list goes on and on.
In my sixty years, I cannot think of a President who failed more. And apparently, 70% of the American people believe the country is going in the wrong direction, according to a NBC poll released today (NBC, parent of MSNBC, is hardly a Tea Party or conservative news outlet).
We are on the cusp of becoming a second rate and failed country. I can only hope that the midterm elections will send a strong mandate that we need a serious change in direction.
