I don’t understand why so many people seem surprised at the way our economy is failing, new jobs aren’t being created and world opinion of our president is dropping. This is what the majority of voters wanted.
Candidate Obama, in 2008, was quite clear. He said he wanted to spread the wealth. That means he wanted to take some hard-earned money from workers to pass along to those who won’t or can’t work.
He said the United States was at the heart of many world problems and we should pull back and let other nations take the lead. His actions as president have been consistent with his statements.
On the economy, he has been successful in driving down the ability of companies to expand and lead the world. Companies cannot afford to hire employees unless sales are increasing. Company owners cannot hire employees in the “hope” that sales will increase to pay those employees.
In the short span of six years, we have witnessed the downfall of the United States to a second-tier country. This is what the majority voted for, so why is there so much press and public surprise and consternation at our current situation?
