Why Obama Failed

by Ronnie Spangler

There are many reasons why Barack Obama failed as President. The fundamental reason, he forgot the basic tenants of the office. Uphold the Constitution of the United States, do what is best for the country not what is best for one group or party, protect American citizens at home and abroad and be honest do not lie to the American people.

The job description for community organizers is the complete opposite of the office of the President. Community organizer's primary goal is to force government and employers to accept their demands for change that is in the self interest of the group they represent. The majority of demands from groups like ACORN relate to government provided housing, health care and education. They are not concerned with the overall effect it will have on the economy or the country. For this reason they continue to demand more and more until finally there is nothing left to demand.

When President Obama took office he thought he could lead the country the way he led as a community organizer. Because his party had control of both the House of Representatives and the Senate he could have anything he wanted without taking a leading role. When it came to Stimulus, Speaker Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Reid gave him what he wanted without restrictions. He then turned the spending over to Vice President Biden and the Department of Energy with a major emphasis on Green Energy. On Health Care, he left it entirely to Pelosi and Reid with the understanding they could pass it first and read it later.

Many believe that instead of upholding the Constitution he has violated it by circumventing the Congress with his continued use of executive orders. From Don't Ask Don't Tell to Defense of Marriage Act to Libya to Immigration and Homeland Security President Obama has ignored the wishes of Congress.

In respect to Homeland Security our southern border and what has happened with the Border patrol has been President Obama's biggest blunder. In 2009 Border Patrol Agent Robert Rosas Jr. was ambushed beaten and murdered with his own weapon by five illegals that had snuck into the country with the sole purpose of robbing an agent of his night-vision equipment. Initially five were apprehended in Mexico by Mexican authorities. They still had agent Rosas' weapon in their possession. The FBI interviewed a 16 year old who told them how everyone was involved in the murder. A deal was struck and only the 16 year old plead guilty. The media ultimately forgot the case and little has been said about it since. Under pressure from a few people that still remember it DOJ is now prosecuting 2 more in San Diego but have asked the court to keep the hearing closed and records sealed.

Another agent Brian Terry was murdered with weapons provided by our government to Mexican Drug Cartels during the flawed Fast and Furious program. President Obama and Eric Holder did everything they could to cover up the failed policy and now say it was a program that began during the Bush Administration. This is an absolute lie. Agent Terry was murdered in 2010 and to this date no one has been brought to justice.

The most recent and biggest lie to come from the White House has been the Benghazi Libya terrorist attack that resulted in the murder of Ambassador Stevens and 3 other Americans. President Obama and his Administration has lied to America from the very beginning and is still trying to cover up who was responsible for Ambassador Susan Rice going on national television saying it was not a terrorist attack.

The economy is still in deep trouble, the Middle East is about to explode, Al Qaeda is regaining ground in Iraq, Libya, Syria and in most of the African continent yet the President until this week was saying, " bin Laden is dead and Al Qaeda is on the run." Only partly right, Al Qaeda is not on the run. They are attacking our Embassies and killing our people.

Questions Concerning Obama Reelection

by Ronnie Spangler

What are your thoughts about Mitt Romney as a GOP candidate?

Mitt Romney is an exceptional candidate for the GOP. If he stays on message, which is the economy and jobs, he will be the next President. The deciding factor will be the debates. The Obama campaign has tried every distraction they can think of to derail the Romney campaign. Now they are pinning their hopes on a friendly media during the fall debates. During these debates the media will do everything possible to embarrass and force Romney to deviate from his message. President Obama will not be forced to defend his record while Gov Romney will be forced to answer questions about Healthcare, Bain Capital, religion and social issues. He cannot fall into the Obama orchestrated trap or he will lose every debate.

What do you think about Obama and his chances for re-election?

I have always considered Obama a con artist at best. If you check my archives and read some of my previous post you will find I have never supported President Obama. I spend a lot of time traveling throughout our southwestern states from Texas to southern California. He will win California by promising to bail them out of their current financial situation and catering to the Latino vote. He will promise them everything and paint Republicans as an uncaring racist party that will deport every Hispanic undocumented person in the state. As the election gets closer and the economy continues to falter I would give the advantage to Gov Romney. As the price of oil continues to fall the price of gas will also fall by the election rolls around. If people understand that this is only a short term event and realize that the price will go back up after the elections are over, this could still be an issue that Gov Romney can win on. Its too early to predict President Obama's
chances for re-election but Gov Romney is trending up and is looking good for a Romney Presidency.

What do you think will be the main issue in November election?

If Gov Romney can stay focused it will be the economy and jobs. If not and he falls into the Obama media trap, the main issue will become more about Romney and his past record and less about Obama and his dismal record.

How do you think Social Media will play a role in this campaign? and can you compare it to Obama's campaign of 2008?

In 2008 Sen Obama owned the Social Media, now the Conservatives and Independents are very close to taking over sites like Twitter Facebook. I believe the recent decision by GM to pull their advertising from Facebook had more to do with politics than revenue. More an more sites in favor of Gov Romney are popping up on Facebook and this was a warning to them, if you refuse to show support for Obama you will lose our advertising. However, it will not work.

With all the bias being shown by the networks and print media, more and more people are turning to Social Media for information. It is clear that all of the networks including MSNBC and CNN are once again supporting President Obama and will say or do anything to help in his re-election. This is why their ratings have dropped to historical lows. The public simply does not trust the media anymore.

What is your opinion of Super PACs and its influence in this race?

Regardless of what the polls show or what people say when publicly answering this question, Super Pacs will heavily influence how people vote. Like everything else the Democrat Party has done, all of the negative ads coming from Democrat Super Pacs will backfire on President Obama. So far every Democrat negative ad that has been run by the President has been answered by the Romney Campaign or a Super Pac that endorses Gov Romney. I also believe President Obama's flip flop on using Super Pacs and venture capitalist donors will come back to haunt him this fall.

As it stands now.

As more and more people become involved in this election cycle and as they learn more about Gov Romney I believe he will continue to gain support. This election will hinge on President Obama's record and the direction he is currently taking America. With Europe falling apart and states like California facing bankruptcy due to overspending, Americans are afraid the country is headed in the wrong direction.

For a long time Obama supporters have been suffering from Buyer's Remorse. They really don't like the way President Obama has handled the office but they have no where to turn. They know President Obama will not fulfill his campaign promises but they find it too hard to admit they were wrong. The only alternative they have is to stay home and not participate in his re-election. If they decide to place the country before ideology this could happen.

President, Oil and Gas

by Ronnie Spangler

Democrats, the media and Obama surrogates are claiming President Obama and his policies can have no impact on the price of oil or gas. If this is true why are Democrats calling for the President to release oil from our strategic oil supply? They cannot have it both ways. If presidential policies and actions have no impact then why add more oil to the world market from our strategic oil reserve?

Here's what I know. When gas and oil prices were this high in 2008 everyone was screaming for President Bush to do something. Democrats in Congress were saying President Bush was allowing speculators and oil companies to gouge Americans. They were all saying President Bush was somehow connected with oil companies and afraid to do anything that might hurt oil company profits.

The media showed endless reports of people selling their blood to buy gas, milk, or food for their babies. They kept asking President Bush, what are you going to do. In May President Bush lifted the executive ban on offshore drilling. The market reacted and the price of oil fell. Congress resisted until Sept when Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid let the Congressional ban expire. Again the market responded and the price of oil fell. By Dec of 2008 the price of oil was around $75 per barrel and the price of gas was around $1.59 per gallon.

When President Obama took office the price of oil was around $78 and the price of gas averaged around $1.89. President Obama and a Democrat Congress led by Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid immediately reinstated the bans along the east coast, west coast and parts of Alaska. The price of oil and gas began to rise. After the Gulf coast accident President Obama overreacted by placing a moratorium on drilling in the Gulf. The ban is still in place today and the price of oil and gas continues to rise.

President Bush relaxed the restrictions on drilling and opened up more federal land and increased the number of drilling permits. By doing this, today we are reaping the benefits from increased domestic production. Imagine where we would be today if he had not opened up federal lands and increased the number of permits.

President Obama wants to take credit for the increase in domestic production of oil but the truth is he has rejected all attempts to open federal lands. In fact his policies have decreased the amount of federal land available for drilling. Using EPA he has regulated drilling to the point that it has become almost impossible to open new drilling sites.

For Democrats and the media to say the President has no impact on the price of oil or gas is laughable at best and a flat out lie at worse.

War On Religion Or United States Constitution

By Ronnie Spangler

The latest news coming out of the White House is President Obama' mandate for contraceptives. 1st he required all religious organizations to offer contraception in their insurance coverage for all employees without charge, free. After the Catholic Church leaders pushed back President Obama said he would "accommodate" religious institutions and charities by not requiring them to pay for contraception, but now the insurance companies must provide them free of charge.

United States Bishops have rejected this accommodation for reasons stated in this letter. According to the Bishops, "At this point, it would appear that self-insuring religious employers, and religious insurance companies, are not exempt from this mandate." I would totally agree. Organizations like Christian Healthcare and National Jewish Health may be required to provide birth control contraceptives under HHS rules. Other religious affiliates that are basically insurance companies servicing their particular religion, may also be required to provide contraception regardless of their religious beliefs.

It seems HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has persuaded President Obama to believe that contraception such as the morning after pill and birth control pills are healthcare drugs similar to penicillin. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact most birth control pills warn that prolonged use may slightly increase a woman's risk of breast cancer and cervical cancer, according to the National Cancer Institute.

This how the Bishops stated it, "First, we objected to the rule forcing private health plans — nationwide, by the stroke of a bureaucrat's pen—to cover sterilization and contraception, including drugs that may cause abortion. All the other mandated "preventive services" prevent disease, and pregnancy is not a disease. Moreover, forcing plans to cover abortifacients violates existing federal conscience laws. Therefore, we called for the rescission of the mandate altogether." I think everyone can agree pregnancies are not an illness or disease.

The 1st Amendment of the United States Constitution emphatically states:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

In simple terms since Congress is the only element of Gov that can write laws, the Gov including the President cannot write any rule or law that prohibits churches, religious charities or their affiliates from exercising their religious beliefs. This would include their decision not to offer birth control pills or any other form of contraception.

It wasn't long ago that Congress attempted to restrict how the internet was being used in America. The public perceived it to be an attempt to censor speech and pushed back against their Bill. Congress gave in to the public outcry and killed the bill. This is one example of why the approval rating for Congress is at 10%. President Obama implied that if this Bill had passed Congress he would have signed it into law. Everyone but Congress and President Obama saw this as an attack on free speech and I agree.

As I see it this latest little tidbit coming from the Obama Healthcare law is both a war on religion and an attack on our Constitution. Is President Obama trying to do this for purely ideological reasons or in this election cycle is he simply trying to divide and conquer. Remember it wasn't long ago that President Obama was wailing against Wall Street, calling them fat cats, and wailing against the evils of Super Pacs. He also campaigned against the 1% and was instrumental in the birth of the Occupy Wall Street crowd. Now he has dropped the "fat cat" language and is accepting money from Wall Street and Super Pacs. Only President Obama knows why he is doing the things he is doing. Maybe he is still angry at the Supreme Court after his 9-0 loss in the Hosanna-Tabor Lutheran Church and School v. EEOC case. Most people have renamed it the Obama vs Religious Liberty case.

It is clear to me that if President Obama and his Progressive allies are waging a war on religion in America, he will lose. Its also clear if this is a war on our Constitution he will likewise lose. In the end he will also lose his bid for reelection and may very well cause the Democrats to lose control of the Senate.
