Obama’s failures, arrogance are his legacy


We can all remember when President Obama’s pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, damned America and declared ”America’s chickens have come home to roost.” Now, five years later, it’s safe to say Obama’s chickens have come home to roost.

I recall April 15, 2009, when 350-plus Warren residents gathered at Courthouse Square at our first Tea Party voicing their concerns over Obama’s actions and the pending Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare. All of those concerns and more have now come to fruition. The ACA has proven to be anything but affordable.

This president has never been able to grasp the simple concept of three separate but equal branches of government – executive, legislative and judicial. This form of government has served us well for many years. Obama constantly states the ACA is the law of the land, and no one can change it; however, he has changed it 29 times and counting. It is illegal for him to do so under our constitution. Obama claims to have been a constitutional law professor, although no one knows where or what he taught. I have never heard of any student who attended his classes.

The president threatens to use his pen and phone if Congress does not obey him. Never have we seen such defiance and arrogance from a U.S. president. His domestic policies have all failed and have been mired with scandal and corruption, including the IRS and NSA investigations. For any president to target American citizens because they disagree with his insidious ideologies and policies is unbelievable.

This president’s foreign policy is an abysmal failure. It’s crisis after crisis across the world. He warns dictators not to cross his red line, and when they do, he does nothing. Remember when he ordered Bashar Assad of Syria to stop gassing his people or else? That went well for Obama. It’s OK to torture, bomb and shoot your people, but by God don’t gas them!

The people of the Ukraine and Venezuela are fighting and dying every day for something they have never known – freedom. They have never known it, but they are willing to die for it. All people yearn to be free.

We as Americans have only known freedom; our children only know freedom. We are not fighting for it; it seems we are letting it slip away because of this president’s policies and actions.

In case you have forgotten along with this president, we still have brave men and women fighting and dying for freedom’s cause in Afghanistan.

All but for the color of this president’s skin and the cowardice of members of Congress in their failure to impeach him, we will never see this man held accountable for the total destruction of America from within.

When all is said and done, the Obama presidency will go down in history as the greatest con and fraud ever committed against the United States of America.
