Just can't stand it can you??
It's been a year and a half with President Obama & his cabinet at the helm of our government.
So lets review some highlights of the former President Bush Jr's watch-2001-2009:
A never declared war in Afghanistan & Iraq
Household income dropped 2000-2007
Instituted the No Child Left Behind Act
Implemented the largest tax cut in US history
The response to Hurricane Katrina
Housing market collapsed
Cut family planning funds to foreign countries
Opposed and vetoed SCHIP (health insurance for children)
Opposed the Kyoto Protocol
Vetoed stem cell research
Dismissed 4 Federal attorneys that caused a uproar since no one understood why & still don't.
Implemented President's Surveillance Program (anyone can be wire tapped)
Ignored the Geneva Convention
America's image goes downt he crapper globally.
So after 8 years, some people think President Obama's taking this country down by his policies. Really? I read the above & wonder how the US made it this far without other nations placing a ban on our exports.
Personally, I think it boils down to racism. An educated, well spoken, laid back Black man is in the Oval office & many folks just can't stand it. Don't think it's racism? Look at who's protesting the loudest. Yes, there are a few Black Americans that don't agree with President Obama but I haven't heard many over the roar of the tea parties & the Glenn Beck clones. And doubt they will be heard because of their race.
Really, we all know the real, underlining reason many kick President Obama everytime. We read, we have access to C-SPAN & alternative news outlets: He's Black & you just can't stand it!!
