Leadership is lacking in our country

President Obama has laid waste to our way of living by causing the destruction of our country's economy and the demise of democracy as we know it. The lack of clear leadership boils down to the vague background of our commander in chief.

Obama supporters were deceived by his words of hope, which differ from what he has done thus far. Even at that, there are way too many people walking around who still can't see the forest for the trees as our country slips away.

This sheep in wolf's clothing has a country-killing agenda that has put future generations in peril because of mismanagement and plain incompetence.

His latest blunder is using our military like mercenaries in Libya, not knowing who the real enemy is. As far as I am concerned, he was duped into supporting the other nations in their quest to fulfill their personal agendas for oil.

Considering that we are involved in two theaters of war already, we didn't need to get involved in a third conflict that has all the makings of another Vietnam.

Being a 100-percent disabled Marine Vietnam veteran, I remember the same excuse used by other presidents who involved us in some other countries' business. We are doing this to save the people, or we have vested interest in protecting this or that country.

"Leadership" is the operative word. I couldn't care less which party is governing. What matters to me is: What makes the leaders qualified? It is imperative we have a specific set of qualifications for the next president; otherwise, we will go the way of the dinosaurs.
