Wrong man for the job

To the editor:

To Barack Obama:

You are my president for the next four years, and I will abide by that election result. This is out of the total respect I have for the office. However, I personally feel that you are not qualified to hold this position.

Our founding fathers railed for a small, limited government, and you have done your utmost to expand the size of the federal government to a proportion that is almost unsustainable. You have given our enemies pullout dates in wars that you have involved our nation in, giving them a reason to sit back and wait, to refortify their arms and their soldiers, to be able to retake territories and governments we have spilled our soldiers' blood over. You have turned your back on American citizens in their time of need for our protection, resulting in their deaths. You have neglected your oath of office by signing into law the NDAA bill, giving the military the power to arrest and hold anyone in the world without probable cause and/or legal counsel. You are bringing this nation on a path of economic ruin by directing it toward a system of socialism, an economic system that has and will always lead to economic destruction. You have led this nation on a path of fiscal ruin by running up the debt to over $16 trillion on budget. Your immigration reform policy is nonexistent, as is your monetary policy. The media, for the most part, have glossed over these events, facts and issues. This is what happens when the major media is controlled by the major political parties. The last bastion for the Common Man to state their opinion without governmental censorship is the print media.

As I have stated previously, I respect the sacred office you hold and will hold for the next four years but that does not mean I don't have the right to state what I see and hear are gross injustices on the part of you, your administration, Congress, State and Local governments. The 2014 midterm elections are just around the corner and you have a scant two years to break the stalemate and gridlock that exists in government. Presidents Reagan and Clinton were able to skillfully maneuver the quagmire that existed in their respective administrations but I fear in your case you are the wrong man for the job. It is time for you to stop blaming the previous administrations for the ills that you inherited. You wanted the job, you asked for the job and now it's long overdue that you own the job. This nation is crying for leadership, a quality I fear you lack. The problem is this nation may not survive another four years floundering recklessly from one crisis to another. It's time for the people to see the real you. A person they haven't seen for the past four years. Are you up to the challenge? I hope so but I fear not.
