This is rich. I’ll respond to each of your bumper sticker objections, but you really need to take more classes to understand how the US government works.
What has Obama done that is detrimental to the country?
$6 trillion in additional debt and the economy is still struggling, some fear may slip back into recession
Congress holds the pursestrings, the president signs off on their bills but does not create them. You’re wrong to blame Obama here.
corporations are sitting on trillions of dollars and afraid to invest it because they fear where things may be headed
Can you be a little bit more vague? You do realize business are in the business of making money and they may do anything they want with it and the president cannot force them to spend it. You have forgotten how the businesses made their money if it was in the US. Also, if the future of business was so bad in the US it is stupid of them to sit on the cash instead of investing it where it can make a return - do you know where those great investment opportunities are? Here’s a hint - nowhere right now. Not China, not Europe, not Mexico, not Russia, not Japan. Maybe Australia, Korea, and Chile. Study up on business and investment practices, too, before shooting your mouth off.
Iran is on the verge of a nuclear weapon
They started under Bush but he did nothing, too. Why? Because it is an act of war to attack the facilities of a sovereign nation, and pre-emtive war, while Bush proved it is possible, is a bad idea. What about sanctions? Yeah, those were started under Bush, too, but they don’t work very well. So, what is your solution? And while you’re at it, explain why the president must stop Iran’s nuclear ambitions and what his powers to do so are, and how Obama failed to use his powers.
failure to support and defend America’s constitution on several occasions
How? What has the Republican controlled Congress done to bring impeachment proceedings against Obama for failing to do his job?
the Country’s credit rating has been downgraded
This is idiotic. It was downgraded as a direct result of Teabaggers in a Republican controlled Congress (remember who controls the pursestrings?) refusing to raise the debt ceiling, not because of anything Obama did.
The pending tax increases and arbitrary budget cuts to take affect 01 January have the economy teatering on the edge
Another idiotic statement since the Republicans (who control the pursestrings) presented Obama with the plan and he signed off on it, so it was a joint effort. Also, the tax increases are actually returns to tax rates set during the Republican controlled Congress and Bush years. Your fear of taxes is showing, as well as your inability to explain how taxes work.
Certain groups around the world still hate us as much as ever (recent embassy attacks, etc.)
Oh, boo hoo. Obama didn’t kiss Muslim asses and now they are mad at us. Are you sure this has nothing to do with Bush and the Republicans using the entire US military and intelligence community to wage war against them? Study history.
dangerous precedence set with types of targets and locations of drone strikes
What does this mean? What conspiracy theory has got your scared?
unemployment stagnant at 8.1% (underemployed about 3 times that)
And how is Obama supposed to fix that, and where did he fail, and why?
health care costs continue to rise
That’s because the Affordable Care Act hasn’t kicked in yet. It starts in 2014, but until then it’s still the same old system of rising costs that are pushed by the Republicans.
tuition costs continue to rise
What does Obama have to do with this?
household incomes continue to fall
What does Obama have to do with this?
his rhetoric contributes to racial division and class warfare
In your opinion.
The list could go on for pages and pages. He is not taking effective action to solve these problems. He either ducks them, or blames someone else, or blames some other event. Furthermore, we don’t just simply elect a president with the hope that that they will “not be detrimental to the country”. We don’t elect someone so that they can remind us whose at fault for various problems. We elect them to fix the problems.
Your profound misunderstanding of how our system of government works and how the office of the president works is disturbing in how it shows your authoritarian streak is writ large. This statement is exactly the sort of rhetoric would-be dictators use to convince the public to abandon democracy in favor of a strongman who can get things done without the constant bickering of a democracy. The US is a representative republic, learn what that means first.
