Obama’s ‘socialism’ is working

In response to Mr. Huffman. He says the growing debt over the last 4.5 years is the result of big government. I submit it has been caused by two wars, diminished tax revenue particularly from the rich and corporations and the millions that became unemployed due to our economic collapse and are still on government assistance.

This is further borne out by the fact Obama has lowered discretionary spending, after a 40-plus year rise, which is the only part of spending he can control. A jobs bill has languished in the House since 2010 but Boehner won’t allow it to come up for a vote. You know, to heck with the country if we can keep Obama from looking good.

Obama’s stimulus was intended to make business “well” so they could hire. It worked beautifully. Millions were hired! Not the result unions were looking for. Since the capitalists showed their gratitude for taxpayer dollars by exporting jobs, Obama has had to specify infrastructure improvement to ensure jobs remain here.

Our socialist president? With the stock market at an all time high, I say hurrah for socialism. Sure beats the “ism” Bush championed that ruined the country.

In response to Ms Yoak. The administration has never denied the Benghazi attack, never denied the deaths. They dropped the word “terrorist” from the report. I’m all for truth from the government, but blatant cover up? Impeachment? Get real. If she’s this upset over four deaths, where was she when Bush was needlessly killing tens of thousands of innocent Iraqis?

Obama never ran a lemonade stand? I recall a recent president that was a two-term governor. Impressive sounding credentials. He turned out to be our worst president ever! Lack of running a lemonade stand is hardly indicative of presidential job performance.

Obama is promoting an illicit lifestyle for young girls? Uh, he has two young daughters. ‘Nuf said.
