To The Daily Sun,
President Obama tries to shade his eyes from the bright light of reality as he wallows in the darkness of his arrogant, progressive madness. How to divert this country's attention away from all of his denials, deflections, distractions and diversions? The political Baryshnikov of our time pivots again, but then really steps in it.
Remember not so long ago when our dear leader assured us that this ISIS bunch was just a jayvee team? Remember way back to last Sunday when he blamed his intelligence agencies for underestimating that jayvee team? John McCain, Lindsey Graham and other politicians had read the long-ago written memos alerting our president about the cancerous growth of this Islamic terrorist threat and brought it to his attention. Did Valerie Jarrett, Samantha Powers and Susan Rice tell him to hit the links and not worry so much? Did they even need to do so? Don't worry about missing so many security briefings, Mr. President. We will keep you apprised of any real threats to our national security. Is that what they were telling him? He certainly wasn't listening to our top field commanders who have been outraged and incensed at his disregard for their expertise.
But now our president has assured us that he has a bold and brilliant plan to defeat the Islamic State and he has complete confidence that the CDC has total control over the Ebola outbreak and it will pose no threat to our beloved homeland. Oh wait, no not really. It was time for another Fred Astaire-like pivot. President Obama went to Northwestern University to insist to the American people that he deserves credit for our much improved economy. Yes indeed, he said that by every economic measure, it is indisputable that we all are just so much better off. Say what Mr. President? Did you fall off the balance beam?
Here are some sobering facts for all of us to ponder. Contrast these figures from Jan. 2009 to now: National debt $10.6 trillion to $17.8 trillion; median income $56,696 to $54,045; labor participation rate 65.7 percent to 62.8 percent (lowest since the late 1970s Carter era); home ownership 67.5 percent to 64.7 percent; food stamps 32 million to 46 million. Not to mention the astronomic rise in the disability roles. Hey, please keep this under your hat.
The top 5 percent have become richer while the middle class has grown poorer. Yet, the progressive, liberal politicians bemoan the greedy rich while their voters meekly nod their head in adoring approval, clueless to the absurdity of this contradictory message.
A worldwide medical emergency has emerged while our president has implemented a catch-and-release policy for the hordes of illegal immigrants entering our southern border; this in lieu of the outright amnesty he has promised after the November elections. Islamic terrorists have infiltrated our borders while social media outlets help recruit the disgruntled among us, especially those inside our prisons. Our president's answer has been a desire to try terrorists in American courtrooms, setting imaginary red lines in Syria, giving more flexibility to Russia, Benghazi massacre and cover-up, bombing and leaving Libya and endorsing the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. Our borders, language, culture and educational system are being destroyed while our national defense is being decimated by liberal, progressive policies. The fundamental transformation of our constitutional republic draws near, threatening most everything we hold dear.
Do folks really want this group of radical central planners to take care of them? Do you think Thomas Jefferson, one of the smartest leaders this country has ever had, would approve of the direction this country is headed right now? How would he direct us out of this corrupt, bureaucratic growth of soft tyranny? Oh how he would chastise us for our tepid and lackluster response to the anti-capitalist and anti-constitutional left.
Our president recently assured us that the November midterm election is a referendum on the economy and his "policies are on the ballot, every single one of them." I think I know what President Jefferson would want us to do on Nov. 4.
