What is going on? Where is the presidential leadership? President Obama makes several speeches a day, but what is he doing about any of this? Nothing. Except that he and his ultra-left minions are doing plenty. They are ruining our economy and putting us on a path to destruction.
We have an inexperienced, ideological, socialist-acting president. In dangerous times, it is extremely dangerous to have a leader who doesn’t know how to lead this great nation. He is imposing a top-down strategy to transform our economy and our country. The next election can’t come soon enough, but who can beat him and will that candidate be able to overcome all that will be thrown at him? Dictators and ideologues don’t give up. If we get the leadership we deserve, we are in worse shape than anyone thought.
