WASHINGTON, June 15, 2014 – In the past it was understood that being a honest, hard working and loyal American was the preferred method of being a leader. These are things that fathers and mothers have long tried to instill into their children.
Now, thanks to President Barack Obama our youth have found that these principles can be circumvented by those that are good at circumventing.
President Obama has proved to be a great circumventer.
It has always been understood that to be a candidate for President, a person, man or woman must be a natural born citizen. This must be beyond controversy. Frankly I don’t know if he is or not. But there should not have been any question in the first place.
Obama has circumvented that issue and for the most part it has been swept under the rug, forgotten. In fact, in chronicling his “scandals” it is not even on the list.
One would think that anyone seeking to be president would do everything possible to prove his citizenship which shouldn’t be that difficult. If you are, you are, if you ain’t, you ain’t! It’s that simple.
President Obama isn’t the first politician to show a lack of honesty, but he has been able to make it an art form. From the very start Obama made one promise, that his administration would be transparent, but as we all know that lasted about one day.
We all remember the Benghazi attack when four Americans were murdered during the invasion of America’s consulate in Libya. We also remember the lies that followed when President Obama sent Susan Rice to tell America everything but the truth. However the President hasn’t suffered any real consequences.
America and it’s youth have seen Presidential lying and cover-ups at their best. Without shame or punishment. Yes, we Americans are learning that blaming someone else for America’s problems is another way around personal responsibility.
Now we have the Obama Health Care Package, which has proved to be littered with lies like “you can keep your doctor” or that it will save the middle class. Then there is ” it’s going to be the best thing since the light bulb” and my favorite “we the government will take good care of you the people, because we care.”
The American people were sold a socialist bill of goods. And it is a good lesson for the cheaters of the world.
Yes this administration has brought us a long way and I’m sure that the youth of our nation have paid close attention to its leaders and the underhanded way they handle difficult problems.
It is hard to imagine how a president can go from one scandal to another with such ease, but when you think about it, it’s simple, just evade the truth with a big smile and tell the people what they wish to hear.
The President has also taught America how to deal with sticky problems and those nagging people that seem to just hang around and ask questions such as journalist and reporters. The President has taught us to just talk and talk and talk some more when asked questions. Or ignore it all together.
The President has also taught us how to overcome stress. Take up golf, or possibly pool, or just about anything that will get one out of the White House or Oval Office into a more pleasant atmosphere.
President Obama has made getting out of the office when the getting gets tough a highly skilled art. For instance, when the world was watching the thousands of illegal immigrants invading our southern border, he decided to go on a fund raising trip, then play a little pool and drink a little beer.
This will be very helpful to the youth as they are embarking on the more unpleasant aspects of becoming concerned citizens. They are surly learning how to evade the responsibility of being a mature person that is not out for photo ops.
Yes, we have learned a lot from this president, such as when speaking of America, we need to make an apology for her greatness and her generosity. And last but not lest, we must remember, it was this president and his administration that has taught us that morality is not something we need not to concern ourselves with.
Under this administration we have learned that the Constitution can be changed by just the pen and telephone.
For the sake of this great nation, I just hope that the citizens of America have learned better, and that our youth have been taught the difference between truth and lies, if not, we are in trouble as a nation.
America’s leaders have the responsibility to set the course of the nation, but for it to be straight, it must be set with honesty and by example.Click here for reuse options!
