Obama:  Rehire or Fire?

Suppose you were an employer who hired an executive on the condition that their performance meet certain standards they promised to deliver upon over a four year period. At the end of that period, would you hold that executive to those standards?

Suppose you were an employer who hired an executive on the condition that their performance meet certain standards they promised to deliver upon over a four year period. At the end of that period, would you hold that executive to those standards?

Four years ago, Barack Obama looked America straight in the eye and promised us that if elected their chief executive, he'd:

  • Raise family incomes.
  • Create an entrepreneurial environment to encourage new business.
  • Put more people to work, lowering the unemployment rate.
  • Cut the deficit in half.

How did Obama fare with his promises and how would you grade him?

  • Median family income went down over $4,000 - FAIL
  • Massive regulatory increase and his anti-business climate dropped new business creation to a 30-year low - FAIL
  • Unemployment increased to over 8% for 43 consecutive months with real unemployment double the official figure. 23 million Americans out of the job pool - FAIL
  • An unprecedented four straight years of more than $1 trillion deficits, the highest rate of debt growth in US history - FAIL

There are other "achievements" that should be considered when grading this President:

  • Fuel prices doubled during the past four years - A FAILURE
  • Fossil fuel industry torpedoed, production of inexpensive electricity from coal slashed, oil production roadblocked at every opportunity - A FAILURE
  • Extreme partisanship encouraged in Washington (no GOP input to Obamacare permitted, GOP House initiatives blocked in Democrat Senate) - A FAILURE
  • Uncompetitive, costly green energy initiatives implode at great cost to taxpayers (Solyndra, et al) - A FAILURE

The list could go on and on.

So we call our executive in for a review of his performance and ask him to self-evaluate for our review.

What does he claim in his self-evaluation?

He claims he deserves an "incomplete" because it was all "Bush's fault" and that he deserves another four years to "finish the job." Really? He makes the same promises he's made before, evidently expecting us to believe that, this time, he really really means it! Yeah, right.

Frankly, Obama's dismal performance of the past four years begs the question, just what "job" is Obama really interested in finishing over the next four years? The job of destroying the US as a major international leader and champion of freedom? The job of transferring our wealth to poorer nations as payback for his perceived (but delusional) belief the US is a "colonialist" nation that robbed poor nations to achieve it's once-lofty position?

Not only has Obama failed to deliver on his promises, his naiveté and dogmatically uncompromising approach have strongly divided this nation as only a practiced demagogue could.

Now, with his "fly-to-lie" campaign criss-crossing America, he demagogues round the clock, lying to seniors with classic "mediscare" rubbish that completely misrepresents Republican plans to save Medicare from certain financial collapse with meaningful reforms that would have no impact any current or near-term recipients.

Ask yourself, why would a candidate have to resort to repeating blatant lies over and over if he had truth on his side?

It should be clear that Obama does not share the traditional values most Americans hold as the basis for American exceptionalism. If that isn't clear to you, then you need to see "2016:  Obama's America" to understand the distorted worldview of this man who appeals for your vote with a barrage of lies.

On November 6 America must send this President packing!

Biography - Bob Webster

Bob Webster, a 12th-generation descendent of both the Darte family (Connecticut, 1630s) and the Webster family (Massachusetts, 1630s) is a descendant of Daniel Webster's father, Revolutionary War patriot Ebenezer Webster, who served with General Washington. Bob has always had a strong interest in early American history, our Constitution, U.S. politics, and law. Politically he is a constitutional republican with objectivist and libertarian roots. He has faith in the ultimate triumph of truth and reason over deception and emotion. He is a strong believer in our Constitution as written and views the abandonment of constitutional restraint by the regressive Progressive movement as a great danger to our Republic. His favorite novel is Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand and believes it should be required reading for all high school students so they can appreciate the cost of tolerating the growth of unconstitutional crushingly powerful central government. He strongly believes, as our Constitution enshrines, that the interests of the individual should be held superior to the interests of the state.

A lifelong interest in meteorology and climatology spurred his strong interest in science. Bob earned his degree in Mathematics at Virginia Tech, graduating in 1964.
