By his own words, Obama is a failure of a president

Grover Beach

By Richard Neufeld

As a senator, Obama voted no on raising the debt ceiling stating raising the debt ceiling is a failure of leadership by the president. As president, Obama wants exclusive rights to raise the debt ceiling.

As a presidential candidate, Obama stated the $400 billion deficit and $4 trillion increase in the debt by Bush was not only “irresponsible” but “un-American” as well. As president, Obama has had four years of $1.2 trillion deficits and has increased the debt by about $6 trillion.

Never have we had a more hypocritical and divisive president. In his own words, Obama has proven he is a failure as a president to lead and is irresponsible and un-American.
