How do you like Obama now?

Dear Editor,
Anyone in Alex City who is on Facebook has seen the explosion of complaining and indignation toward Obama care. People are receiving premium notices from health insurance providers and the common topic is the amount their premiums have gone up. In some cases the premiums have doubled. Some of the people I see complaining on Facebook boasted of voting for Obama. Hey!! How do you like Obama now? If you voted for the most incompetent, inexperienced, incapable individual to ever hold a political office in the U.S. then go look in the mirror, and you will see who is responsible. Oh, be ready – this situation is only going to get worse.  The website for Obamacare is dysfunctional. The analogy Obama used to compare Apple computer having glitches with a new application to the Obamacare’s total software breakdown is nothing more than an excuse. Have you ever seen our Government do anything efficiently?
The shutdown is a joke. Political posturing is all this whole situation is. I really don’t know who is worse the Republicans or the Democrats. The Democrats look asininely stupid and the Republicans look incapable. The one thing I learned in leadership training was if there is a confrontation between two individuals or groups, whichever side is the loudest and most vehement is usually the party at fault. It is not hard to see who is at fault here. The Democratic party has done its best to take God out of the lives of Americans. What I would ask Democrats to do is to get down on your knees and explain to God how and why you support the policies and practices of the Democratic party. Then on judgment day you can remind God of that conversation and how you explained everything to him and made it OK to support the Democratic party and see how that works for you. When  playing golf takes precedence over  leading our country, what can you expect? This is a quote by our great president during the six months he was a senator which is the only practical experience Barry had prior to being elected.
“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America ‘s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure.  It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills.  It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies.  Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally.  Leadership means that, ‘the buck stops here.’  Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren.  America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership.  Americans deserve better.”
~ Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006
So I think he has changed his position. Of course I think he has changed position constantly on every issue since he went into office. The only issue which has remained constant is the country’s budget. Our country hasn’t had an established budget since Barry took office five years ago.
Our country is in a mess. If I ran my business the way our country’s government is run I wouldn’t be in business very long. A correction is coming, be prepared.

    Thank you Woody. Today, I heard Dr. Benjamin Carson quote Vladymir Lenin saying that the best way to push a country into socialism is with a socialistic health care system. We are there.
