Change we can't believe in.
Many were duped!
I am of course referring to our current Commander and Chief. Before I get accused of being a racist, let me give you some important information. Not only have I campaigned for and supported many black candidates ( yes, I will give you a list of them if you like). I believe in love and fairness for all of God's children. Why did I just say that? I am getting fed up with people who criticize this president being called racist, even though many people of color are coming out against his policies !
Let's be honest and look at all of the tremendous mistakes and broken promises.
First, we have the promise that no lobbyists would be allowed in this new administration. Our President has appointed SEVERAL lobbyists and even tried to appoint a COMMUNIST lobbyist~!
Next, he promised more thorough and stringent inspections of oil companies and rigs.He also promised to end the cozy relationship between the White House and "Big Oil". Really? Not only were the oil rig safety inspections and documentation required by the MMS, not completed on the rig that exploded in the Gulf of Mexico, Obama promised to reform this agency. The MMS still receives large royalties from the industry it is tasked with regulating! Mr. Obama also denied taking campaign contributions from oil companies. Mr. Obama, please! You accepted over $66,000.00 from 5 big oil companies, and over $210,000.00 in campaign contributions from Oil company employees and their spouses. Are oil companies only evil when not giving out campaign money?
Then recently, even Rahm Emanuel, the Chief of Staff, stated that the current administration made mistakes handling Israel, and It will take months to repair this relationship. Forget it. I feel that the President's coziness with Hamas will make any repairs with Israel unlikely. America has two loyal and devoted allies. Of course I mean Great Britain, and Israel. Why is our President seemingly going out of his way to upset them and harm these relationships?
Last, for now, our current President promised a decline in unemployment if the stimulus package passed. We were told that the unemployment rate would not increase over 8% if we passed this bill. We were also told that unemployment would climb to over 10% if this costly bill failed in the U.S. Senate. Have you seen the actual unemployment records lately? Please research all of my points, and then respond to me.
Why am I sounding so harsh? I am not happy with how my future and the future of my homeland is being handled. I was no fan of George W. Bush's. It must be stated however that even when he was clearly telling us the truth, he was accused of lying. Remember "weapons of mass destruction" ? I do. I remember how the President was accused of deceiving the public! I don't remember the media taking any of that back when yellow cake uranium was discovered in Iraq in August 2008. How much was discovered? Well in scientific measurements, a bunch. More specifically, lots and lots. My point is that this chemical could have been used by Hussein to kill lots and lots of Americans.
I do not despise our president! In fact, I will pray for him and his family tonight. I just expect accountability and nothing less.
