Once again the Democrats and the Left are trying to lay the blame for the failed policies of President Obama at the feet of the Republicans. The mantra continues that “…Obama has great ideas and is trying to correct the ‘damage’ done by the Bush administration, but the Republicans stand in the way”. The Republicans afraid of being tagged “racists” cower to their critics. Their is lack of leadership from the top and from both aisles.
America, as a nation, has to wake up to the realities that it is the policies of the Democrat Party that are destroying our great country not the objections from the Republicans. The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), for instance, was rammed through Congress by the Democrats in the dead of night without one Republican vote and has created a whirlpool of confusion, including hidden taxes, enormous deductibles, loss of one’s own doctor and cancelled health insurance policies. All in the name of making health insurance more “affordable”, which it is not, resulting in employee layoffs and business closings.
Then there are the thousands of bureaucratic regulations stifling the growth of the economy. Obama pledged to put the coal industry out of business and his hideous regulations, from the EPA, are doing just that. The same goes for the oil industry and rules against fracking. Then, in his narcissistic, supercilious arrogance he brags that his administration is responsible for the increase in oil production when it is the oil companies fracking on private property and not government lands that are responsible. Once again the EPA, expressing environmental concerns, holds up the Keystone pipeline which would have created hundreds of new jobs. Even though the Congress approved the Keystone pipeline, Obama vetoed the bill. How is that the fault of Republicans? What can we say about the EPA’s allegation that Gibson Guitar Company was using “illegal” wood from India? Ridiculous.
Next, we have “open boarders” with thousands of illegals (from all countries) crossing over from Mexico into the United States, overloading the welfare system and local jails. The Democrats see these as potential voters and some Republicans welcome them as cheap labor. While the majority of the Republicans are for closing the borders (north and south), Obama is vigorously waging campaigns in Central America, promising those who come to the U.S., all kinds of free goodies. Those who make the trek are robbed, raped and killed by the so called “coyotes” who bring them into the country. Many have lost their lives making this onerous trip. Is this being compassionate? Is this the Republicans fault? Another chaotic mess that is at the feet of Obama and the Democrats.
Another border problem concerns drug trafficking and Obama’s Justice Department. Does “fast and furious” ring a bell? Eric Holder buying guns from border gun shops and supplying them to the drug cartels in order to trace the guns back to those same gun shops in an attempt to show the need for gun control. There is no end to their absurdity.
Last, but not least, and probably the most important; our tragic and failed foreign policies. Failing to help the Iranians, and Syrians, to overthrow their tyrannical governments. Butting-in the Egyptian and Libyan politics thereby creating the rise of the Islamic State terrorists which first resulted in the attack on Benghazi, Libya, and the horrendous murder of our ambassador, to the barbaric beheading and burning alive of thousands of Christians, Muslims, and other religious groups who do not agree with Sharia law in Iraq, Syria, Egypt and across the Middle East. Doing nothing while Russia invades Ukraine. Not heeding Israels’ warnings of Iran’s nuclear threats. And, where was Obama while all this was going on? Playing golf. Makes your head spin.
There are so many more cases of the incompetence, naivete, and plain ignorance of this administration to catalog. The chaos in the world and here at home are the result of Obama, the Democrats, the Left, and the unconscionably derelict, complicit media, who then demonize the Republicans as somehow being to blame. The Left always needs someone to blame. America wake up!
[A footnote to young people under 30 years of age. The problems you face today, like few jobs, etc., are all because of the bad Democrat policies of the past. Your only hope is to do your own research and prove to yourself which party can really help you].
