It was nearly a year ago when President Barack Obama snidely suggested that his foreign policy was superior to other viewpoints, by answering “ask Osama bin Laden and the 22 out of 30 top al Qaeda leaders who have been taken off the field whether I engage in appeasement” during a press conference.
Ahh yes. The playground answer.
Fine. I’ll go with that.
Mr. President, you should ask Ambassador Chris Stevens whether your foreign policy decisions are correct.
Ask our soldiers, marines, airmen and sailors -- since they have had to mourn twice as many deaths in Afghanistan since you took office.
Ask those of us in the media who are force fed your half-truths and talking points, instead of real answers to hard questions.
I am tired of the President of the United States acting like he is the uniter of the world.
Pardon me Mr. President, but I am a citizen of the United States, not the world. Just look at my birth certificate. (Note: This is called sarcasm.)
Should we seek peace and prosperity around the world? Yes. Should we do it at the expense of America and her citizens? I answer that with a profound no.
It’s not just your poorly thought out foreign policy that draws my ire. At home your policies have failed us too.
Gas prices have doubled since you took the oath of office.
Unemployment still hovers above eight percent and that’s just the fudged partisan numbers from your friendly little labor department.
In some states, median incomes are at the lowest level since the Great Depression.
I could go on typing all of your failures Mr. President, but that may cause carpal tunnel and since you passed the healthcare bill, insurance companies have had enough time to find out what is in it. My deductibles are now too high for that.
Suffice it to say I won’t be voting for you this year sir. Don’t take it personal, it’s just that I’m from the Show-me State and well, you haven’t shown me a thing.
The only thrill up my leg I plan on getting soon is the one when I see you board Air Force One next Jan. 20, headed for Chicago and the arms of Mayor Rahm Emanuel.
