Both Wars and Economy now Officially Obama's
Obama promised to do many things when he ran for office. He promised to end the war in Iraq within 16 months and close down the Guantanamo detention center. He promised to fix an economy that he claimed was broken by Bush. He promised to bring positive change to Washington. Well you have failed on all promises and now its time to own up to your own actions and stop blaming Bush for the problems you have created or allowed to continue.
You have had your 16 months and we are still there with no end in site. This war is now your war Barrack Obama.
You chose to execute a surge strategy vs. cutting our losses and getting out of a war that can never be won. What would winning in Afghanistan look like anyway? This is now and will forever going forward be your war Barrack Obama.
Guantanamo Bay Detention Center
You signed an executive order your first week in office to close this facility with-in one year. Its been way past a year now, and it is still open with no plans to close it. This is now officially your terrorist detention center Barrack Obama.
You have spent 10x the amount of money that any president ever has in an effort to "fix" the economy. You have had the Congress on your side, and had the ability to get just about any bill you wanted through. You spent the second $400 billion of the Tarp funds. You signed a $800 billion "Stimulus" bill. You have had a never ending string of programs like "cash for clunkers", "cash for caulkers", and numerous foreclosure prevention programs. You point to the GDP numbers and the stock market, and take credit for turning the economy around. With all the money you have spent, and all the programs (your programs) you have initiated over the last 16 months, it is pretty hard to argue this is still Bush's economy. Bush would have had it fixed by now like he did after 9-11 by actually cutting taxes. It is now officially your economy, and your problem. Unemployment has risen from 6% to 10% during this time when all the money was spent, and it is not coming down anytime soon as a result of your retarded policies that incentivize laziness, and discourage hard work. Foreclosures in the recent quarter are at an all-time high, as are mortgage delinquencies. You have completely wrecked the housing and private employment markets, and it is time you own up to this Barrack Obama.
Positive Change in Washington
OK, you did not technically run on positive change. You ran on just plain change, and change things you have. You are not willing to work at all with the Republicans, who are the only ones with actual solutions. You have cheated and bastardized the system to ram unpopular bills though. You have lied over and over again about the contents of bills, while accusing your opponents of distorting the facts. We are stuck with your crappy health care bill that will bankrupt the country, and does not lower costs or the deficit as YOU yourself promised over and over again (The American people never believed you and were solidly against this bill). Now that the CBO has re-scored the bill to show that it does not lower costs, and increases the deficit over the next 10 years, an honest politician would be looking to fix those two substantial issues, and deliver what he had promised. Are you going to revisit the health care bill now that you have been proven wrong, or are you just going to throw it over the fence so the next president can repeal it before it takes effect. You are a slimy Chicago politician, who lives and breaths corruption, and will go down as the worst president ever.
