After wrecking the country, Obama deserves no respect

September 19, 2013 

Respect?

In recent weeks a number of letters have lamented the lack of respect shown toward President Obama. I am amazed at this. Obama has managed to damage the country more in five years than has been accomplished by the left in the last 60 years. Unemployment, entitlements, health care, declining military, cronyism, foreign policy, debt and “phony” scandals are just some examples of disasters he alone is responsible for.

Obama never accepts any responsibility for anything; it’s always someone else’s fault. He, his supporters and the sycophant media invoke racism in every situation where people disagree with him. Obama’s socialist ideology will never work. It has never worked since Marx and Engels propose the concept. Socialists always fail because they eventually run out of other people’s money.

America’s position domestically and in the world is in jeopardy. Almost half of Americans are embracing the entitlement mentality; this is what the left needs for survival. If that attitude is able to grow, the country I grew up in is doomed. In the world, America is no longer viewed with respect, and you wonder why disrespect is shown to Obama. Next the left will want respect shown to Hillary.
