Top 10 Reasons Not to Re-elect Obama
By Chuck Norris – Whistlerblower – October 2012 – p 28
On Feb. 2, 2009, President Barack Obama explained his chance to fix the economy to host Matt Lauer on NBC’s “Today”: “I will be held accountable. I’ve got four years. … If I don’t have this done in three years, then there’s going to be a one-term proposition.”
Here are the top 10 reasons I believe President Obama shouldn’t sit a single day beyond his one term in the Oval Office:
10) Obama’s economic actions have failed to lower the unemployment rate in the U.S. to less than 8 percent for the past 42 months, which is a record.
Nearly four years into his presidency, Obama’s economic progress was reported on Aug. 3 by Reuters: “Details of the household survey, from which the unemployment rate is drawn, gave a downbeat assessment of the labor market, with the share of the population that has a job falling to near cycle lows. In addition, the labor force participation rate, or the percentage of Americans who either have a job or are looking for one, fell to 63.7 percent last month from 63.8 percent. That is a sign of low confidence in the labor market. Data last week showed the economy grew at an annual pace of 1.5 percent in the second quarter, also far short of the 2.5 percent rate needed to keep the unemployment rate stable.”
9) The Obama administration’s out-of-control spending has led America to the economic brink and destroyed our country’s credit rating.
In 2009, Obama spoke out of one side of his mouth when giving financial advice to the people in New Hampshire: “When times are tough, you tighten your belts. You don’t go buying a boat when you can barely pay your mortgage. You don’t blow a bunch of cash (in) Vegas when you’re trying to save for college.”
But he then spoke out of the other side of his mouth when he informed the American public that he was proposing a record-breaking $3.8 trillion budget for 2011, which equates to spending $7.3 million a minute. (The federal budget was only $1.9 trillion in 2001.)
Tragically, the president expects Americans to live one way financially (fiscally prudently) and the federal government to live another (extravagantly wildly). Not so surprisingly, the day after the president proposed his 2011 budget, Moody’s Investors Service announced that his fiscal policies “test the AAA boundaries” and pushed the U.S. government’s credit rating below those of Canada, Germany and even France.
8) Obama’s reckless spending and fiscal policies have added more to the national debt than most U.S. presidents combined — roughly $6 trillion in his first term in office (making the total debt nearly $16 trillion and, by White House projections alone, $21.3 trillion by the end of fiscal 2017, $25 trillion in 2021 and $25.9 trillion in 2022).
In 2007, when I began writing my New York Times best-seller “Black Belt Patriotism,” unemployment was less than 5 percent; the annual federal budget was about $2.9 trillion; the federal deficit was $161 billion; and the national debt was $9 trillion.
Today unemployment is stuck at 8.3 percent; the federal budget is $3.8 trillion; the national deficit is $1.3 trillion; and the national debt quickly is approaching a staggering $16 trillion.
And to add insult to injury, our vassalage to other countries deepens as they bankroll increasing amounts of U.S. debt. More than one-half of our public debt is held by private investors in foreign lands.
The International Business Times reported recently: “China overtook Japan as the largest holder of U.S. national debt in 2009. As of December (the most recent data available), it held about 23.1 percent, or $1.15 trillion, of all foreign investment in U.S. privately held federal debt, according to a newly released report by the Congressional Budget Office, or CBO. … Without monetary policy change, the CBO warned in its 2012 Long-Term Budget Outlook on June 5, the U.S. federal debt could be twice the size of the U.S. gross domestic product by 2037.”
America, is that really the burden you want to place upon yourselves and your children?
7) Obama has detrimentally increased not only the costs of entitlements but also the dependency of citizens upon government subsidies rather than empower the people’s autonomy, responsibility and freedom.
Obama has been called the “food stamp president” because more federal grocery subsidies have been given out under his presidency than under most others combined. A record 44.7 million people, or 1 in 7 Americans, were on food stamps last year, up 33 percent from fiscal 2009. But far more than that, this president has radically increased government entitlement expansions.
The Heritage Foundation documented that Obama’s 2011 budget increased total welfare spending to $953 billion, a 42 percent increase over welfare spending in 2008. And over the next decade, welfare spending is projected to cost taxpayers $10.3 trillion.
The Congressional Budget Office recently released updated figures that reveal how Obamacare will cost twice as much as the price tag first soft-lobbed at the American public, from $900 billion to $1.76 trillion between now and 2022.
6) Obama demeans private enterprise and the entrepreneurial spirit — the very heart of America.
In 2009, right after taking office, President Obama emphatically stated that “only government” is our savior, and then he supported his socialistic platform through multiple company and corporate bailouts.
Recently, Obama reiterated his anti-individual and -capitalistic beliefs when he defined the “somebody” who’s responsible for the success of your business as being the federal government: “If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that; somebody else made that happen. The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet.”
The Wall Street Journal even confessed that the president is “subordinating to government the individual enterprise and risk-taking that underlies prosperity.”
5) President Obama has left the U.S. in a weaker and more disrespected position in the global community.
In 2009, President Obama began his presidency by humiliating our superpower nation and parading U.S. weaknesses and mistakes to the world on what many now call his “apology tour,” in which he embarked on global travel with his apologetic Top 10 decries of America, as detailed by the Heritage Foundation.
And is the U.S. better off among the nations?
The Washington Times report that, according to a poll by even two left-leaning groups, “A majority of Americans say the United States is less respected in the world than two years ago and believe President Obama and other Democrats fall short of Republicans on the issue of national security.”
In February 2012, Gallup reported that “Americans continue to express much greater dissatisfaction than satisfaction with the United States’ position in the world, and their views have improved little since hitting a low point in 2008.”
The Bipartisan Policy Center, including many of the original 9/11 Commission members, reported on national preparedness 10 years after those catastrophic terrorist attacks: “Our country is undoubtedly safer and more secure than it was a decade ago,” but “we fail to achieve the security we could or should have.” The report concluded that the federal government has failed to meet nine of the original 9/11 Commission’s 41 recommendations.
And what is President Obama’s response? He plans to initiate more than $500 billion in automatic cuts to the defense budget over a decade, starting next January. And Bloomberg Businessweek recently reported that Obama’s Democratic-controlled Senate voted to authorize another reduced Pentagon war and defense-related spending package.
4) Obama has broken or unfulfilled 324 campaign promises.
In the over 500 promises Obama made during his campaign and presidency, even the pro-Obama PolitiFact website and their Obamameter has rated his scorecard: 184 promises kept, 60 compromised, 71 broken, 61 stalled, 130 in the works and two not yet rated. What that verbiage means is that even according to the political left, Obama has fulfilled 184 promises and left 324pledges broken and unfulfilled.
In 2010, feeling a bit defensive and maybe insecure, Obama fired back in anger to those who were accusing him of selling out by breaking so many of his campaign promises. Wielding his verbose verbal sword, the president retorted: “Take a tally. Look at what I promised during the campaign. There’s not a single thing that I’ve said that I would do that I have not either done or tried to do. And if I haven’t gotten it done yet, I’m still trying to do it.”
“Not a single thing?”
That’s right — it’s 324 single things.
3) Through his presidency, President Obama is invoking and enabling a radically progressive secular state in the U.S.
In 2010, before his run for the presidency, Newt Gingrich stated on the tour for his insightful book “To Save America” that the Obama regime is “the most radical administration in America’s history. This is a secular socialist machine … deeply opposed to God being in public life, deeply opposed to religious values defining how we think about things … they clearly represent a value system that any reasonable person would call secular … on a scale that is the opposite of the Founding Fathers.”
When New York churches can no longer meet in public school settings, a federal court orders a Rhode Island public school to remove a prayer banner that has been posted for over five decades (and it complies), the federal government mandates Catholic institutions to cover abortion-inducing drugs, contraceptives and sterilization (at no cost to the patient), the U.S. Air Force removes “God” from the motto of the Air Force Rapid Capabilities Office, the National Park Service omits the words “Laus Deo” (Latin, “Praise be to God”) from a Washington Monument capstone replica, atheists continue to contest “under God” in our Pledge of Allegiance, town councils can’t pray to start their meetings, evangelical pillars like Franklin Graham are subdued by gotcha-gangs in the mainstream media and cultural icons like football superstar Tim Tebow can’t even bow in silent prayer without criticism, etc., you can be assured that religious liberty (and Christianity, in particular) is under assault by secular progressives across America. And leading the national charge is none other than our own president, Barack Obama.
Is it any wonder Obama hasn’t fought for a single Christian cause or crisis in culture? Is it any surprise that his ethical campaign promises have fallen flat?
Remember when Obama promised during his 2008 campaign to “clean up both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue” with “the most sweeping ethics reform in history.” He repeatedly declared that “an Obama administration is going to have the toughest ethics laws of any administration in history.”
Who are you kidding, Mr. President?
In 2010, President Barack Obama confessed to ABC News’ Diane Sawyer, “I’d rather be a really good one-term president than a mediocre two-term president.” But what if Obama’s one term was not good but bad for the country?
Here are the last two unquestionable justifications for ousting Obama from office:
2) Obama elevates himself above the U.S. Constitution — which contains the rulebook for his presidency — discarding and bypassing its principles and tenets.
What should be of grave concern to every American citizen is that President Obama has described the Constitution as “an imperfect document … a document that reflects some deep flaws … (and) an enormous blind spot.” He also said, “The Framers had that same blind spot.”
In so doing, the president established a rationale and justification for disregarding, disavowing and disposing the Constitution from oversight and obedience in his administration and decisions, which he swore to uphold when sworn in to office. To add insult to injury, Obama places himself above the Constitution and those “blind Framers,” who just couldn’t see the big picture as he does today. After all, he’s the constitutional scholar, and the Framers were just, well, the creators of the document!
Today the Constitution tragically conforms to and serves the White House’s political whims, not vice versa. It’s time we stop that constitutional chaos and return to the founding principles, limited government and taxation, and freedoms of our early republic, whether we like them or not.
1) Four more years of President Obama will not only fundamentally transform but also unravel the very fabrics of our republic as our Founding Fathers knew it and as we know it
On the eve of Obama’s election, he promised that he would “fundamentally transform the United States of America.” He wasn’t kidding. And he’s well on his way.
Imagine what four more years of Obama unleashed would bring, when there would be no re-election to face or consequences to bear.
Imagine no more.
WorldNetDaily’s Jerusalem bureau chief, Aaron Klein, has just published a groundbreaking expose and look into exactly what would happen in a second term with Obama. “Fool Me Twice: Obama’s Shocking Plans for the Next Four Years Exposed,” WND explained, “is based on exhaustive research into Obama’s upcoming detailed presidential plans and policies as well as the specific second-term recommendations of major ‘progressive’ groups behind Obama and the Democratic leadership — the organizations that help craft legislation and set the political and rhetorical agenda for the president and his allies.”
From crumbling down American sovereignty by giving sway to U.N. rule and European socialism to clamping down on Second Amendment gun rights and passing the Freedom of Choice Act — the sweeping bill that would abolish all pro-life regulations across the nation, from parental notification laws to bans on federal funding of abortion — our republic would be in deep, deep trouble with Obama at the helm for four more years, because he would complete his fundamental transformation of the United States into a completely progressive European-socialist state.
Fellow citizens, America is out of time, out of money and indebted up to its ears, and our economy and unemployment rates are in the tank. We can’t afford a single day more of President Obama — especially knowing that every day, his administration adds $4,179,115,306 of debt (on top of the existing spending and debt).
The fiscal actions of Obama’s federal government are diametrically opposed to those of America’s founders, who adopted the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution. Thomas Jefferson could have been writing to us today when he wrote in 1816 to Samuel Kercheval, roughly 40 years after the creation of the Declaration of Independence:
“We must make our election between economy and liberty, or profusion and servitude. If we run into such debts as that we must be taxed in our meat and in our drink, in our necessaries and our comforts, in our labors and our amusements, for our callings and our creeds, as the people of England are, our people, like them, must come to labor sixteen hours in the twenty-four, give the earnings of fifteen of these to the government for their debts and daily expenses, and the sixteenth being insufficient to afford us bread, we must live, as they now do, on oatmeal and potatoes; have no time to think, no means of calling the mismanagers to account; but be glad to obtain subsistence by hiring ourselves to rivet their chains on the necks of our fellow-sufferers.”
The Declaration of Independence could have been speaking about President Obama when it stated, “In every stage of these Oppressions we have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble Terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated Injury. A Prince, whose Character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant is unfit to be the Ruler of a free People.”
