If this president were a White man named Bush he would be receiving all of the criticism warranted for a political executive that has allowed the greatest economy in known history to be downgrade from it’s AAA rating to that of an AA+.If this president were a White man named Bush he would be receiving all of the criticism warranted for a political executive that has allowed the greatest economy in known history to be downgrade from it’s AAA rating to that of an AA+.
He would be called incompetent and stupid. He would be the butt of SNL jokes. David Letterman, Jay Leno and Jon Stewart would be serving his ineptitude up on a platter for late night and cable laughs.
Awkwardly, because this president resides in black skin our expectations of him are naturally lowered. Lower even than that of former president Bush. One would think to be roundly criticized, as Bush was there must have been the highest expectations for his presidency. Why else would Bush be held to such a high standard?
As for the first Black president, we must cut him some slack. We must expect less. We most blame his environment, “What he Inherited,” rather than judge his inability to fix the problems that he was hired to fix. Incidentally, he identified these same problems before he was hired. And these are the problems he vowed to have the answers for. He vowed to cut the deficit in half by his first term but the reality is he will have increased the deficit by 4 times if not higher by the end of his only term.
I want to be one of the first to offer up the slogan for Republicans to use in campaign 2012. “Downgrade Obama 2012.” This slogan is for tee shirts and bumper stickers alike. Every website and blog should wear it proudly.
Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden were correct after all. They both warned that our Affirmative Action president was not ready for the job. But the perfect storm of hate Bush, White guilt and Liberal agenda deception allowed a radical partisan inexperienced community organizer to be elected to what used to be the most powerful elected office in the world.
Sadly we let deep political thinkers like Woody Allen, Barbara Streisand and other Hollywood elite shame us into voting for an unqualified Black man for no other qualification other than he is Black.
Well we did it. We made history America. For the first time in the history of American government a political Party and their president has demolished the credit rating of the United States government. They have had the good faith and credit of the United States downgraded. And for 2012, one downgrade deserves another.
Downgrade Obama 2012!
