To the editor:
I just don't understand it. There are still people out there who think Barack Obama is qualified to be president. I guess they are still spellbound by his charisma and their hope for change.
Unfortunately, there is a reality to deal with — Obama's record of failure:
— Open and transparent government. Failure.
— The Affordable Care Act. It's not affordable. Failure.
— First stimulus. Payback to supporters. Failure.
— Unemployment over 8 percent for three years. Failure.
— A $16 trillion national debt; $6.5 trillion added by Obama in just three years. Failure.
— Mortgage relief that didn't happen. Failure.
— Lower college tuitions for more accessible education. Didn't happen. Failure.
— Wall Street and banking reform. The meaningless Dodd-Frank bill. Failure.
— GM bailout. The Chevy Volt; $24 billion still at risk. Failure.
— National immigration reform. Didn't happen. Failure.
— Fast and Furious. Leads to dead Americans. Failure.
— Gitmo prisoner release. Leads to Benghazi and dead Americans. Failure.
— Muslim peace dividend. Egypt no longer an ally. Failure.
– Bin Laden dead. You didn't do that, Mr. President, someone else did!.
Let's face it. This president is unqualified and a he is a failure.
