I really don’t intend to be insulting, but is the American public stupid?
In a previous blog, I did mention that there are more choices available for the office of U.S. President than Democrat and Republican – which is in some ways of looking at this the difference between voting for “Dumb” and “Dummer”.
What has me upset today is how the American voting public treats the incumbent. Mind you, I’m apolitical (the short definition – I don’t care about politics), so I’m not backing any horse in this race – or any other, but back to the subject; if I may ask, does America REALLY think that they elect a “dictator” to office for four years?
Stupid question on my part huh? I don’t think so. Take a look at the Presidential powers under the U.S. Constitution and tell me how much President Obama can do on his own? Has everyone forgotten that Congress and the Senate are the ones that run the country? It is them that have stopped the incumbent from fulfilling his dream, his intentions from his first run for the office. Don’t you, the voting American remember the budget freeze that cost the U.S. its great credit rating, and who caused the problems? People… PLEASE!
Here is my take on your choices between President Obama and Mitt Romney: Staying with President Obama means that if Congress remains as stubborn as they have for the past 3.5 years, you know the game plan – a group of guys that are hell-bent on screwing not only the President, but you and me as well: Remember Pres. G.W. Bush (Jr.)? I told friends of mine that he shouldn’t be president. Why? Does anyone remember his work record in private industry? He bankrupted two… yes, two corporations before he entered into politics. How did he lead the U.S. when he got in office? All that Pres. Bill Clinton built up in his eight years… gone. What did Mitt Romney do in the private sector? Do I need to spell it out for you?
If the past is any indicator of what the future MAY be…
Choose wisely everyone (who still can vote).
