Obama needs to stand up

  • Follow Letters

Hamlet’s assertion that “something is rotten in the state of Denmark” may very well apply to our United States of America.

Barack Obama – the president of the people, by the people and for the people – doesn’t seem to realize his vital obligation. Despite the firmness of his voice and the seriousness of his demeanor, he is showing insecurity and weakness. He just won his second term, which gives him a unique opportunity to put our country in the right direction after so many failures.

We are looking at a president who is talking about compromising our Social Security and Medicare benefits to “meet the House majority halfway” in an effort to reduce our country’s debt and, at the same time, not to increase taxes of our millionaires and billionaires.

He is afraid to denounce both Democrats and Republicans for the obscenity of receiving payments from the National Rifle Association as well as from the Israeli lobby, which has decided our Middle East foreign policy forever.

The time has come for Mr. Obama to use his bully pulpit to address the nation and expose our malaises, fallacies and trickeries and scare those “patriotic” wheeler-dealers.

Obama is a lying puke

Obama is a lying puke politician who will do what ever he can to stay in office and will not stand up for ANYTHING! His "friend " Wright was thrown under the bus. He lied about Bush being unpatriotic for raising the debt ceiling and then turns around and increases debt beyond Bush's level and asks for a debt ceiling increase dispite promising to cut the deficit in half. Obama lied about so many things it is almost impossible to keep track. Obama getting a spine, I serously doubt it!

Jaoquin said in her letter "

Jaoquin said in her letter " to increase taxes of our millionaires and billionaires". I think they just raised taxes on the "millionaires and billionaires" just a couple of month ago. Did that !! The "wealthy and well connected" are now paying over 70% of all income taxes while nearly 50% pay NO income tax. You liberals won't be happy until they pay 100% . What will you do when you run out of other peoples money?

When Obama is smiling--

you can tell he has found someone else to blame for his mistakes. The latest being the Treasury Dept (Cuba trip for "frieinds").

Obama

Actually the rates were allowed to expire. There must be a reason the last tax cut was set to sunset. Don't be mad that this president allowed the expiration to occur as planned.

Increases in taxes should ALWAYS be

accompanied by a sunset date, to emphasize the limited power of government.

Any cut in taxes should be permanent, subsequent to a vote in congress to raise them again. Once more, to highlight and to limit the power of government.

"expose our malaises,

"expose our malaises, fallacies and trickeries"

Obviously we are talking about Obamacare which has turned out to be a TOTAL DISASTER which has already failed on every level. Or are we talking about gun control since NOTHING in Obama's or the Democrat's proposals would have prevented Sandy Springs or the Colorado shootings. So why are we proposing them?

Face it Joaquin. Your boy is a flaming disaster from healthcare, to the economy, to foreign relations, to job creation, to....well....everything he has done or tried to do and failed.

And NO Obama supporter should EVER want to discuss "fallacies and trickeries" since Obama's entire administration is based upon "we have to pass the bill before we can see what's in it". Now, the Republicans KNEW what was in it and they TOLD us what was in it and what would happen and guess what......EVERYTHING BAD THEY SAID ABOUT IT HAS TURNED OUT TO BE ABSOLUTELY TRUE.

BTW, just wondering where this

failed product of affirmative action became, in mind of the letter writer, a "president of the people".

Hearkening back to Lincoln's Gettysburg Address, it a GOVERNMENT "of the people, by the people, for the people".

The incumbent has made it abundantly clear that his first loyalty is to himself and his political party.

I will agree with the writer that Obama "doesn't seem to realize his vital obligation"(s).
