“Understandably, since you’re in the news business, this is something that you’re very interested in,” Obama said. “And I think the American people are a lot more interested in what we’re doing to create jobs or how we’re handling the situation in Afghanistan.”
“Interested in what we’re doing to create jobs?” What jobs? Where are they? I’m having a hell of a time finding one. “Interested in how we’re handling the situation in Afghanistan?” What handling? How does sitting on your hands, waiting until after the November elections, constitute “handling”. And all the while, our troops there are wondering “whaaazzzuuppp??
After reading this, some might think I’m a troublemaker, a tea partier ( pronounced: par-ti-ay) or even a “racist”. However, in truth, through the spring of 2008, I was impressed with Obama’s eloquence, keen on his basic ideas and ready to vote for him. As a result, I began to listen more closely to his words and seriously consider what effect his policies and goals might have on me and my country. Then came that enlightening statement when he said, “We are going to fundamentally transform America.” In that eureka moment I realized he was nothing more than an articulate snake oil salesman selling a useless and potentially harmful remedy to a bunch of gullible, tired people. And he did it, didn’t he? And he’s still doing it.
