I recive a lot of emails from clueless individuals asking why I am so negative toward their president Barack Obama. When I try to explain why a pathological liar and narcissist is dangerous for this country, they ignore me and instead, continue to defend him.
Here is a well-written comment left on the politically neutral blog Politico.com last week. It outlines exactly why some of us feel Obama is the wrong man to run this country. Some of you had better open your eyes or there won't be a free country left for your children to raise their children.

President Obama's first act was an order to shut down Guantanamo with no plan on what to do with the terrorists incarcerated there. In his campaign he said that he would change the way things were done in Washington; instead of banning lobbyists and career politicians he introduced an administration composed of people who were accepted as financial heads when they didn't even pay their taxes. A promise to reach across the aisle has turned into a policy of exclusion for the opposition.
We are told that spending of bailout funds will be well documented and we find out there is zero control or record of where $700 billion has been spent and the original problem of subprime mortgages is worse and banks are taking billions of our money while not fixing the problem. We are panicked into a $787 billion Stimulus which we are assured will hold unemployment below the 8% which would happen without this stimulus, and instead the 8% we tried to avoid is suddenly 9.5% and rising.
We are asked to give up our health insurance and choice of doctors for a far more expensive and government controlled health plan which will dictate our care and ration care to those the government decides need it most.
This has been a dismal record and the decisions made seem to continue to be made irregardless of the facts, the affordability or even the expected outcome even when estimates of failure are given by those within the administration. The desired result in each situation is not improvement of any problem, the desire is to take advantage of the problem to gain control. From banks to car companies the object is control. Huge carbon taxes have no useful objective except control. Establishing a far more expensive health system that offers poorer care has no advantage except to those who want to control another huge chunk of our lives.
The objective is to solidify control. Laws allowing unions to avoid secret ballots or to establish mandatory government arbitration are meant to unionize the majority of the workforce and gain more control. Allowing amnesty for illegal immigrants is a plan to add them to voter's lists to gain control. This is an undeniable theme which permeates this administration. They do not care that each of these things adversely affect everyone in the country, they do not care that these initiatives will destroy the economy. The only concern is that they be done to gain control.
As more and more people realize that they are getting the exact opposite of what they voted for, the faster Obama's numbers will drop. The question is will it be fast enough to save the country.
