The Arrogance of Power

America is in trouble. We need jobs. We need to bring back manufacturing. We need to stop the taxes and regulations that are driving jobs out of the country. We need to stop illegal immigration that is flooding the country with unskilled labor, taking jobs away from young people. This is what the American people are concerned about. According to exit polls, the economy was the number one concern of voters across the country.

So, what does our president do as soon as the election is over? He threatens to take executive action on illegal immigration. He wants to give 5 million illegals a path to citizenship. That’s a lot of jobs we don’t have, and a lot of people to support. Shouldn’t the American people expect more from their president? Shouldn’t we expect that an elected official, in this case the president of the United States, listen to the American people? And the big question…shouldn’t we expect our president to put American citizens and interests first?

Sadly, the answer is all too obvious. Obama has never been the president of the “United” States of America. He has made it his job to rip us apart in every way possible. He made it his job to try to destroy the Republican party by constantly playing the blame game. He made it his job to make sure Harry Reid didn’t put the 360 House Republican bills to a vote in the Senate, thereby, denying Republican voters representation. Now, he is making it his job to bypass Congress.

He has traveled the country and the world sniping at Republicans, the GOP, the Tea Party, Fox News, and anyone who doesn’t agree with his agenda. He has bullied, threatened, whined, thrown temper tantrums, vacationed and golfed.

He has played the race card more than once, getting involved and speaking out when he should have waited for the details to come out. This president, our first black president (he is half white, but doesn’t acknowledge that fact), could have accomplished so much to bring the country together in regards to race relations. He could have guided African Americans toward better skills for building a good life. But, instead, he made matters worse. He forgets that he is supposed to be president over the entire country, not just those that will vote for him.

I wanted to give him the benefit after the election, but every time I try to do that, he proves himself unworthy. He’s in a snit because the Democrats lost power, so he’s going to pull this stunt. It’s a power play that’s pure political posturing. President Obama you’ve had 6 years to pass immigration reform. You had control of the house and the senate for your first two years, and you didn’t do anything about immigration reform. You are thumbing your nose at the American people by taking this action at this time. Shame on you.

These are my thoughts. I don’t ask anyone to agree with me. My frustration with this president and this administration is beyond exasperating.
