DEMOCRAT PARTY & OBAMA POLICIES FOOLED US TWICE

I didn’t vote for Barack Obama in 2008 or 2012.  In 2008 it was a very difficult choice for me because I had devoted many years to fighting racial discrimination and eagerly wanted to vote for the first black President.  However, on eight of the top ten National issues, I disagreed with Obama’s positions, so I couldn’t vote for him in good conscience.  Though I didn’t vote for Obama, I believed what he said about his being “post-partisan” and wanting a “transparent” Presidency.  While there were some rumblings on the right about Obama really being a far-left radical, I was unconvinced and believed his message of “hope and change.”  By the 2012 Presidential election, I had become convinced that President Obama followed Democrat policies which destroyed many businesses and jobs, and made health insurance unaffordable for anyone who paid for Obamacare themselves.

Eight years after electing Barrack Obama president, President Obama had a record of a number of failures, of wasting trillions of dollars, of race relations being much worse than when he became President, and of creating a health care system that was far worse and much more expensive than most Americans could afford.  After eight years of Obama, we had a Civilian Labor Force Participation Rate the lowest since 1978, 62.8%, and a Gross Domestic Product (GDP) whose growth did not reach 3% annually for his entire presidency.  Calling President Obama economically incompetent doesn’t come close to describing the situation accurately.  I started following elections in 1952 with President Dwight Eisenhower.  Of the eleven Presidents I have followed since then, President Obama is the worst.  He was unqualified to be President, in part, because he had no executive, managerial, leadership, or even administrative experience.

Now we’re in 2018 and the economy is greatly improved thanks to President Trump and the tax cuts. “But Obama did his best,” you might say.  President Obama’s best was simply not good enough.  He’s was in over his head.  He is a good father and husband, and I’m sure he was a terrific community organizer, but his policies as President have been a disaster and therefore whoever ran as the Democrat nomiee in 2016 should not have been elected because Democrat policies simply did not work.  However, far more important than President Obama’s lack of any relevant qualifications and having had many failures as President, is the fact that he was constantly untruthful to the extent that nothing he said could be trusted as being accurate.  What does this have to do with other Democrats who might run for President in the future?  Everything!

Most democrat policies are very destructive.  There is no war on women (see my post, “War on Women”), no longer very much new man-made Global Warming (see my post, “Global Cooling”), not much racism (see my post, “Obsessed with Race”), a phony gun issue (see my post “More Guns, Less Crime”), etc., ad infinitum.  I spend over six hours/day following national and political issues, and have my Masters degree in Government Administration from the University of Pennsylvania, so it’s easy for me to know who knows what they’re doing and who does not (and President Obama doesn’t know, economically, and had surrounded himself with economic advisors who all believe in Keynesian economics although it has never worked).  Though the U.S. was fooled twice by President Obama and the corrupt Democrat Party in 2008 and 2012, I don’t intend to be fooled by them again.  Let’s see what President Trump and the Republican House and Senate do, despite the Russia Hoax and corrupt “holdovers” from the Obama administration in the FBI and Department of Justice.
