I come from a generation that was proud to question authority, but with the election of Barack Obama, that duty of the American public has not only diminished, it is actually scorn by the media and loyal minions (yes that’s you Rusty). As a conservative/libertarian, I am always suspicious of government and even challenged GW Bush on many accounts; his plan following the invasion of Iraq, his selection of Harriet Myers, his immigration proposal, his prescription D plan, allowing NCLB to be an unfunded mandate, his reluctance to be aggressive on domestic oil extraction, etc.. There were many instances where I and other conservatives were not pleased, and even a little suspicious of what the hell he was doing. Sadly though, there are too many compliant Americans now who are reluctant, if even afraid to question the high minded motives of the almighty Barack Obama. What’s even sadder is that I believe that reluctance is because he is half black, and as Ed Asner recently stated, no one wants to feel “anti black”. What a sad, sad statement on our culture.
I would think that with 12% unemployment in the black community, less than 2% GDP growth, the Obamacare nightmare, and the mess that is his foreign policy, there would be plenty to criticize this President about, but did you know he is friends with JayZ?
