Change we can't believe in.

Updated on January 23, 2012

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.

      Mike I just found your hubs, and I think we have a lot in common.

      Nice Hub!

      No actually I didn't say that you disagreed with. I said I had no Idea what your point was if you had one. You sound so angry that you have no idea who you are mad at. I guess everyone on the planet has upset you, but I am not sure. I am actually a historian and managed a historical museum once.

      I asked a few questions and you wouldn't answer them. I just find your response to be unusual, that's all.

      Are you a libertarian or Green Party member?

      Hi Mike:

      Sorry ya didn't get my point.

      I guess ya can tell I didn't agree with yer "hub" at all...

      In my 60+ yrs of living, I've yet to experience a "president" who has not screwed up.

      Presidents don't rule our nation and its politics.

      Big money rules!

      Obama is not more to blame for the economic mess we are in than are his kids.

      Place the blame where it belongs!

      "We the people" put the man in office.

      The only reason I suggested that ya study, is that if ya aren't aware of the history of the

      Rothschilds and their influence on every aspect of world economics, ya should.

      I wasn't jumpin' on you in a personal or demeaning way.

      We must just agree to disagree.

      I am not sure what the point of your post was because you flew all over the map. First you say Obama has no power because he is controlled by the House, the courts, and the Senate, then you say he is actually instead, controlled by the by the Fed, and the oil companies. Then at the end, you say no they aren't in control because Obama is because as a republic, he elected him. Though we do not know each other you call me out on the carpet by name and tell me to do some research. I am of course not upset, but totally unsure of what your point is. I am not the one who is confused here, and things are very clear to me. So, I leave you with one question. What promises did Ronald Reagan, Ron Paul, and Barry Goldwater, break? I can't agree that ALL potential presidential presidents break their promises. My point is that Obama lied about taking "Big Oil" money. The Bushes did not! There was no cover up there.

      Hi Mike:

      First, thanks for becoming a "follower!"

      Obama is just the "titular" head of the nation.

      All potential presidents make promises which are later broken.

      The "founding" fathers created our form of Gov't so that no one facet of it can gain control.

      Obama is controlled by congress, the senate and by the Fed courts.

      He is in a sense is a "puppet."

      Mike, if ya've studied world economics, ya have to know The Federal Reserve, the world bank, the oil industry is in charge! There is no doubt about that.

      Go back and study the Rothschilds, if ya haven't, and it'll become very clear.

      He who controls the worlds $, CONTROLS!

      Obama is a politician With an ego as large as his job necessitates!

      When it comes right down to "blame," we can only blame ourselves...we vote!

      Remember this is a "republic," not a democracy! Those whom we vote into office...rule!

      This is America!You can disagree with me. Though everything that I used is a stone cold fact, you may disagree!

      I could not agree with you more when you wrote, "I am not happy with how my future and how the future of my homeland is being handled." Tough times ahead for everyone, his supporters included.

      Oh let me count the ways that i disagree with you. Well forget that, there,s too many.You say that you will pray for

      our President, thank God! God hates war, he speaks of love

      for all man-kind, and esp. for our leaders.
