Obama is temporary and hopefully will be viewed by history as an aberration. Sadly, our real problem is much bigger and more intractable than Obama. Reader Doug provides his view:
Monty, let’s face it, our greatest enemy is the sheer self-induced ignorance of the American people. I say self-induced because when its all said and done the truth is out there to be known. Despite our “education” system, MSM and big entertainment working in league with world wide socialists and communists, experience and common sense should direct 70-80 percent of our populous in the right direction. Instead, the only consideration seems to be which party is sticking money in my pockets whether through handouts for the parasites or work opportunities for the “moderates” and “conservatives”. Most Americans apparently have no core values or understanding of what makes a nation, a people or culture work and that spells the ultimate doom of our republic.
Could the current fool in the Whitehouse get reelected? Yes, it is possible. Could the powers that be keep this economy that’s being held together with smoke, mirrors, bailing wire and duck tape above water or even “improving” until after this November? Maybe. The rational person inside me says, no way will he be reelected, surely people aren’t that stupid, but you can’t fix stupid, can’t make people who prefer to be blind to see.
On the plus side, the GOP has just gone through a brutal primary while Obama has skated with the MSM providing good cover and Romney appears to be slightly ahead in the current polls. Also Romney seems like he is going to take the battle to the “One”, a great move, one McCain refused to make. Obama’s foreign policy is in shambles. Those of us who educate ourselves have observed and known this all along. Whether a great visible catastrophe will take place so that even the 70 percent dunce segment of our population will begin to grasp what Obama has wrought remains to be seen.
Well, anyway, lets be optimistic, if there’s a shred of America left in America then Obama should lose in a landslide, lets hope so.
I agree with Doug’s comments, although am likely less optimistic than he. Perhaps Obama loses this next election in a landslide. But that does not remedy the real problem of the country. How could such an aberration ever have attained the highest office in the land in the first place? And how is it possible that we are concerned that he could possibly be re-elected? What has happened to our country?
