LETTER TO THE EDITOR: History to reveal what media won’t
Question of the Day
President Obama seems to be asking us to forget that for five years, the unemployment rate has hovered at or above 7.5 percent, that real wages for American workers are in steep decline, that the national debt has grown to an unsustainable level of nearly $17 trillion, that during his term, economic growth has been negligible and that we are on the verge of another financial crisis and stock market collapse as the Federal Reserve attempts to unwind $3 trillion of debt bought from ourselves.
This not being enough, the president shows disdain for our concerns: how four Americans were murdered in Libya, why the Obama administration presented a false narrative of the Libya terrorist attack, who in the Internal Revenue Service directed the policies of harassment against conservative groups and why the incompetent attorney general maintains his position after lying to Congress regarding surveillance of journalists.
Maybe some are foolish enough to ask why our enlightened president wants us to forget his dismal economic performance and his administration’s rampant corruption. The answer is simple: He has identified the most important issues of our time. These are as follows:
Reduction in the number of American nuclear weapons: Apparently it matters not that unstable nations around the globe are developing nuclear arsenals. America is too strong and needs to eliminate its role as a super power.
Climate Change: The president wants us to believe that destruction of the U.S. energy industry will make the world a better place. He gives no mention that since 2006, the United States has reduced carbon emissions more than any other country, nor does he mention that current U.S. carbon emissions are now at 1992 levels. He claims to fight for the middle class but cares little that they will bear the burden of higher electricity and gas prices, as well as increased unemployment. This remains a war against fossil fuels, which in the end, will bolster the economies of China and India and weaken us.
Despite economic and foreign policy failures, a scandal-a-day administration and policies that result in a weaker America, the president remains the darling of the media. Unfortunately for the media and the president, history will reveal Mr. Obama as the most incompetent leader since Jimmy Carter and the most corrupt since Warren Harding.
