A Failed President and November 2012

On November 6, 2012, Americans around the world will once again be asked to make a determination of who the President will be.  Americans voting by absentee, voting early, and those waiting until the last minute of the day will cast votes.  The counts will be completed and a President will ultimately selected.  The only question that remains in advance of the vote is how you will cast your vote.

Obama has failed as a President in several areas.  Below is a short list of his failures that will be placed on his resume for President on November 6:

1.                     He instituted a change to the health care system against the will of the American people.
2.                     He allowed his lack of knowledge to embarrass Americans around the world.
3.                     He failed to fix the economy, the very same economy that he promised to fix during his first presidential campaign.
4.                     He still wants to take your money and give it away to others while claiming he is only taking from the rich.
5.                     His administration wants to cooperate with the U.N.’s desire to remove the right to bear arms.
6.                     He apologizes for America at every single opportunity he gets.
7.                     He used the Gulf Oil Spill as a way to promote his Green Energy plan despite several companies already failing or closing after receiving government money.
8.                     He sold all Government shares of Chrysler to Fiat, an Italian company at a significant loss.
9.                     He blames Democracy for his failures (http://nation.foxnews.com/president-obama/2011/08/04/obama-blames-democracy-his-failures)

This is not a top ten list.  In fact, it stops short of ten, but it could easily reach ten or exceed ten.  The fact of the matter is Obama has failed to live up to the expectations that he set for himself while failing to live up to the expectations of the Office of  President.

When someone goes to school and fails, that someone is not passed on to the next grade or graduated.  When someone fails at a job, he or she is often allowed a second chance, but when that failure continues, he or she is fired.  When a company fails to make a profit, it closes its doors (historical note: Or, it appeals to Obama who apparently enjoys failure and is supported by your tax dollars until it is sold at a loss to a foreign country).    The bottom line is this President does not deserve to be passed to a second term.  America would be better off if at the close of the day on November 6, 2012, Obama would start making plans for a new Presidential Library located somewhere in the suburbs of Chicago or Hawaii.  It may be interesting to see whether Chicago nominates Hawaii for the library first, or Hawaii nominates Chicago for it first.

Herman Cain

The field of Republicans shooting for the opportunity to take on President Obama has seen many speculations and some expected entries, but none can carry a candle to Herman Cain.  Unlike his opponents, Cain has no political history for a backing except for a loss in Georgia and he has no backers for that matter to keep happy.  He has no hidden political past to keep out of the public’s eye.  He would essentially go to Washington, if elected, with something Americans want desperately.  He would go with no political background or preconceived agenda.

Cain is the symbol of the American dream.  He was born into the middle class without the typical silver spoon in his mouth that many politicians have.  In fact, his father worked three jobs and his mother worked just so Cain could go to college.  He had to work for his degree in Computer Science after obtaining his degree in Mathematics with his parent’s support.  He is a Christian with politics based on small government and free enterprise.  To further his resume he did something that most Americans admire, he built a business. 

To further propel Cain into our collective spotlight, he has something that most other candidates do not have.  Herman Cain has a plan.  A quick visit to his site and you will see his “999” Link to Plan plan detailed.  The vision of his plan is simple.  Cain wants to get government out of the economy so the economy can “return to prosperity.”  He then goes on to detail what even the current administration cannot do.   His number one principle for his plan is simply “Production drives the economy, not spending.”  It should be interesting to note that this is the polar opposite of what the current administration believes.  The current administration wants tax money to pour into the economy to make it grow.  It has not worked, and it will not work.  However, Cain’s plan is simple enough for anyone to read it, understand it, and implement it. 

With the Tea Party Republicans jumping onboard with Cain’s message, the Republican party at large would do well to look to the man who may not only be able to have some fantastic pizza parties at the White House, but he may very well be the man able to propel “us” back into the U.S.
