OBAMA & BIDEN POLICIES FOOLED US TWICE!

I didn’t vote for Barack Obama and Joe Biden 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 and Biden’ positions, so I couldn’t vote for them in good conscience.  Though I didn’t vote for the Obama-Biden ticket, I believed what they said about their 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 and Vice-President Biden followed Democrat policies which had destroyed many businesses and jobs, and made health insurance unaffordable for anyone who paid for Obamacare themselves.

Eight years after being elected, Obama-Biden had a record of a number of failures, of wasting trillions of dollars, of race relations being much worse, 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-Biden, 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 and Vice-President Biden economically incompetent doesn’t come close to describing the situation accurately.

“But Obama-Biden did their best,” you might say.  Their best was simply not good enough.  They were in over their heads.  They are good fathers and husbands, but their policies as President and Vice-President have been a disaster and therefore whoever ran as the Democrat nominee in 2020 (Joe Biden) should not be elected because Democrat policies simply do not work.

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, “Is Global Warming due mostly to Solar Flares or is it Man-Made?”), 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 didn’t know, economically, and had surrounded himself with economic advisors who all believed in Keynesian economics although it has never worked).  Though the U.S. was fooled twice by President Obama, Vice-President Biden and the corrupt and criminal Democrat Party, I don’t intend to be fooled again.

On a positive note, President Obama was the very first African-American president and is beloved by many of all colors ad creeds.  It took 145 years for African-Americans to go from slavery (up to 1863) to having one of its own being elected to President of the United States (in 2008).  In addition, President Obama appointed two female Supreme Court justices.
