An old friend of mine recently posted a Facebook message that invited her Democratic friends to respond. Usually I ignore and delete her political posts because I know she hates President Obama, but since she invited a response, I though why not, I'll just see what she will come back with.
We have not been close for many years, but if you did not know her attitude about the President, you would consider her to be a good person, a great mother and grandmother, and a very generous volunteer in her church and community.
In the course of the comments from her original post, she made a disparaging comment about President Obama, so I asked for what specifically she found so disturbing. Her response is below the squiggle.
And this was just the first year! Who knew it could only get worse.
This is what I mean by not even being smart enough to surround yourself with good people.
"Wake Up America !"
So, Let's Recap "2009".........
1. The American people inaugurate a half-Arab president with a total of 142 day experience as a US Senator from the most politically corrupt state in America whose governors have been ousted from office and done prison time.
The President's first official act is to order the close of Gitmo and make sure terrorist's civil rights are not violated. (honest mistake?)
2. The U.S. Congress rushes to confirm a black Attorney General, Eric Holder, whose law firm we later find out represents seventeen Gitmo Terrorists. (An honest mistake?!)
3. The CIA Boss appointee, Leon Panetta, has absolutely no experience, has a daughter Linda, we find out, who is a true radical anti-American activist and a supporter of all the Anti-American regimes in the western hemisphere. (There were socio-economic factors involved!)
4. We got the second most liberal American woman (Pelosi is #1) as Secretary of State; bought and paid for.
5. We got a Tax Cheat for Treasury Secretary who did not properly file his own taxes for 12 years. (He misspoke!)
6. A Commerce Secretary nominee who withdrew due to corruption charges.
(Another honest mistake???)
7. A Tax cheat nominee for Chief Performance Officer who withdrew under charges.
(Hmmm... another screw-up?)
8. A Labor Secretary nominee who withdrew under charges of unethical conduct.
(Ok, maybe this person was just plain stupid.)
9. A Secretary HHS nominee (Daschle) who withdrew under charges of cheating on his taxes.
10. Multiple appointments of former lobbyists after an absolute campaign statement that no lobbyists would be appointed.
All this occurred just during the first three weeks. . . but who's counting?
11. An avowed communist was appointed Green Czar and quickly released when widely publicized. ( a failure of the vetting process?)
America is being run by the modern-day Three Stooges ; Barry, Nancy and Harry and they are still trying to define stimulus..."it's spending!!!"
The congress passes the $800,000,000,000 (that's $800 billion) pork-loaded spending bill where the government gives you a smidgen of your tax dollars ($13 per week), making you feel so good about yourself [stimulated], that you want to run out to Wal-Mart and buy a new Chinese-made HDTV and go home and watch Telemundo!
Pray for our country.
Obama took Air Force One to Denver to sign the stimulus package, wasting as much as 10,000 gallons of fuel OR 24 JOBS FOR ONE YEAR. Don't you just love hypocrites?
Obama went to the International Olympic Committee to have them choose Chicago for a host city, he failed.
Obama went to Copenhagen to lecture them on global warming, he failed.
Obama went to New Jersey to promote the Democratic candidate for governor, he failed.
Obama went to Virginia to promote the Democratic candidate for governor, he failed.
Obama went to Massachusetts to promote the Democratic candidate for senator, he failed.
Speaking of praying, Obama has now been president for a full year and yet he & wife (first lady) Michelle, the Christian family they claim to be, have not attended church since the inauguration.
Obama is the 1st president in history who did not attend any Christmas religious observance.
He must miss Reverend Wright!
And finally, he is the 1st president to remain on vacation after a terrorist attack.

you run out of other people's money."
And after more of the same in 2010, 2011 and 2012, there are still people who believe in this “CHANGE” ??
People like her are not rational, they are not reachable and nothing we can say or do will change their mind. It makes me want to weep.
