If you don’t sweat the presidency, you’ll get four more years of Obama

American Thinker

In today’s American Thinker, Gene  Schwimmer’s article titled “Don’t Sweat the Presidency, Focus on Congress” alarmed  me.  I agree with his premise that choosing between Mitt Romney and Newt  Gingrich is difficult because neither of them is a true conservative and both of  them have some heavy baggage.  I also agree with Schwimmer’s conclusion  about Congress:

“Of course, whom we send to Congress always matters,  but never has it mattered more than it will in 2012.  In 2013 and going  forward, if we are to save this country, it is vital that the next president,  especially if President Obama is reelected, face a Congress that will send him  only good, conservative legislation and drive a wooden stake into the bad,  liberal stuff before it can rise from the coffin.”

This is my problem with Schwimmer’s argument: if  voters, especially conservative voters, take anything for granted during the  2012 presidential election, the United States will have to suffer through  another Obama presidency.  That’s an outcome that we can’t afford.   Donald Trump said that Barack Obama is the worst president in our  history.  He was right because Obama has been a catastrophe on all  fronts.  From the economy to foreign policy to energy policy to healthcare  to you name it, our president has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that he is  inept, and I’m being kind.  As I said, the United States cannot afford four  more years of Obama’s incompetence, and neither can our allies, particularly  Israel.

Barack Obama routinely bypasses Congress to impose  his agenda on the nation, and no one in Congress has lifted a finger to stop  him.  Obama’s use of executive orders and regulatory fiat is rapidly becoming the stuff of legend.  Under  his administration, Congress has become essentially useless, and assuming that  the next Congress will demonstrate the fortitude that this Congress hasn’t been  able to muster is fraught with risk.

We should do our utmost to elect solid conservatives  to Congress but, and this is a big but, re-electing Barack Obama is inviting  catastrophe.  That’s why I think it’s dangerous to even hint that the person we elect to lead us isn’t or shouldn’t  be our top priority.  Many people voted for Obama in 2008 because they  wanted to see a black man elected president, and they thought that as president  Obama couldn’t do too much damage.   Let’s not make the same mistake again.

One response to “If you don’t sweat the presidency, you’ll get four more years of Obama

  1. WELL, THE HOMIES WANTED A BROTHER IN THE HOUSE- THIS IS WHAT THEY GOT. I UNDERSTAND WANTING CHANGE. I UNDERSTAND GIVING A SO-CALLED MINORITY A CHANCE AT THE WHITE HOUSE, I CAN EVEN GO AS FAR AS GIVING THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT TO THE DEMOCRAT CONTROLLED CONGRESS WITH A DEMOCRAT PRESIDENT. BUT LET’S FACE IT- OBAMMA HAS DONE NOTHING BUT BYPASS THE CONSTITUTION ON MORE OCCASIONS THAN CAN EASILY BE COUNTED, LIED TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ABOUT HIMSELF AND DAMN NEAR EVERYTHING ELSE HE HAS DONE OR IS INTENDING TO DO, APPOINTED PEOPLE TO POSITIONS OF POWER & AUTHORITY WITHOUT CONGRESSIONAL APPROVAL, SPENT THIS COUNTRY INTO OBLIVION, AND PRACTICALLY DISABLED OUR MILITARY. HE CARES NOTHING ABOUT HOW A BILL IS PASSED- JUST GET IT PASSED- BRIBERY, ENTICEMENT, STRONGARMING, ETC. HE ALSO CARES NOTHING ABOUT THE SECURITY OF THE CITIZENS OF THIS COUNTRY, WHETHER OR NOT THEY HAVE A JOB, IF THEY HAVE THE RIGHT OR ABILITY TO DEFEND THEMSELVES FROM INVADERS( FORIEGN AND DEMOCRATIC), OR IF THEY HAVE ANY KIND OF FUTURE. HE’S NOT STUPID- NOT IN THE LEAST. HE HAS SYSTEMATICALLY AND METHODICALLY BROUGHT THIS COUNTRY TO THE POINT OF BANKRUPTCY- NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL, HE HAS PAVED THE WAY TO KILL ANY AMERICAN HE WANTS- FOR ANY REASON, AND IS CURRENTLY WORKING ON BEING ABLE TO IMPRISON ANYONE HE WISHES FOR ANY REASON, FOR ANY LENGTH OF TIME. WE HAVE TO DROP THE BARRIERS OF POLITICAL PARTIES, RACE, RELIGION, OR ANYTHING ELSE AND GET HIM OUT OF THE WHITE HOUSE NOW. ON THE OFF CHANCE ANYONE DOUBTS WHAT HE IS DOING, GO TO A LIBRARY AND READ ABOUT HITLER, STALIN, OR ANY OTHER SOCIALIST DICTATOR IN HISTORY. READ ABOUT WHAT THEY DID BEFORE AND DURING THIER RISE TO POWER. YOU WILL FIND THE RESEMBLENCE REMARKABLE. AND IF YOU CAN’T SEE IT- YOU BELONG IN A SOCIALST REGIME, NOT IN A FREE COUNTRY WHERE FREEDOM AND LIBERTY ARE SECOND ONLY TO THE FACT THAT IT WAS GOD- OUR CREATOR WHO HELPED US FROM THE BEGINNING- THAT GUIDES OUR WAY, NOT THE MENTALITY OF DO WHAT YOU WANT WHEN YOU WANT TO. THAT’S HOW SODOM AND GAMMORA GOT LEVELED. THAT’S WHERE THIS GOVERNMENT IS LEADING US!
