The Fundamental problem with the Obama presidency is that Obama fundamentally believes until he became president we were a country without direction, without pride and without accomplishment.  This is fundamentally summarized in First Lady Michelle Obama’s comments on the night her husband won the democratic presidential nomination.

 

 

What the Obama’s have failed to realize is that though the United States has problems; the radical change sought by President Obama is not the change we so wanted craved or needed.  The change that the United States needs in the next two years and that any president entering office should realize is that the U.S. is in need of incremental change and enforcement of existing laws and the use of existing resources.  While Obama was elected for change it was not for radical change but literally to increase the change in the pockets of U.S. citizens.

Obama was not elected to implement some shadowy scary  liberal agenda.  What bothers this pundit most is that President Obama had a set agenda in place prior to his inauguration and is doggedly attached to it.  Obama insists on telling the American people that he has made us and we are nothing without him.  In Obama’s 2004 convention speech he emphasized there were no varied America’s not a blue one or a red one but a United Stated of America.  However under his presidency we have never been so polarized since say the civil rights movement.  Is it the Tea Party? Is it the Republicans?  or Is it that a sitting president  would campaign for his political party like the 48% of people who did not vote for him are not deserving of representation.  Or is it that we all know that if the democrats remain in power they will continue to unbalance the separation of powers allowing the executive branch to out do and supersede all other branches of government our founders put in place so the U.S. could be the protector of all of our rights.

While it is easy for Obama and his supporters to blame the funny little tea party and the republicans for their problems, they fail to realize that they are dealing with thinking intelligent beings in the United States that were able to push through the minutiae of  the past and present to elect a black colored man to office.  While Obama mires himself in what we are not; all we have to do is look at the Obama’s and know what we are.  We are the USA where we transcended to elect him a black man to be our president.  Finally if he did not think he could solve our problems in four years he should not have signed up for the job.

At this point the only thing I want from Barack Obama is for him to govern and frankly to stop defining himself as a democrat but as a human being and the president of the United States.  To be frank I don’t want to toss and turn at night thinking Obama will turn our country into some sort of Stalinist regime and I do.  If only Obama could love the United States, if only he could love us and not try to change us so much, and stop telling us that without him and the dems we are nothing.  I could sleep well at night.  Unfortunately at this point the whole political situation looks like a catch 22 between The Dems as Pinky and the Brain:

 

and the Tea Party and Republicans as inbred backwoods zombies creating a thriller of a situation for the American Public.

 

 

 

Finally all I want to say is “they don’t really care about us”

 

 

 

{Personally,  the major problem in the United States is the educational system.  Our kids will continue to be mis-educated as long as there are class differences, income differences, and racial differences in the U.S.  There are plenty of high skilled jobs in the U.S. but not enough high skilled workers in the right areas.  We will fall if this is not dealt with.  As for no Child Left Behind the spirit of the law has been changed to give each child an equal shake and an equal opportunity however under Obama in the county I live in this has turned into children participating in the program being legally segregated.  The facilities are literally separate and unequal but that’s another story. We have never seen as much elitism and favoritism in this country ever we may as well be living under a monarchy or aristocracy}
