America wanted a President who was NOT a Washington insider and instead Barack Obama is a ‘Chicago Thuggery Insider’.

America wanted a President who was NOT adept at ‘Washington Politics as Usual’ and instead Barack Obama is skilled in the machinations of ‘Marxism’.

America wanted a President who would put ‘America First’ and instead Barack Obama is a ‘Narcisstic Megalomaniac’ who places himself above not only America and its Citizens, but the entire World.

America wanted a President who would have a ‘Transparent and Open’ Administration and instead Barack Obama has the ‘Most Opaque’ Administration in American History.

America wanted a President who would ‘Heal the Racial Divide’ and instead Barack Obama has set racial relations back 50 years.

America needed a President who would be honest and truthful about the problems facing America and instead Barack Obama is a ‘Pathological and Seial Liar’ who is simply incapable of telling the Truth about anything.

America needed a President who could Solve the ‘Economic Crisis’ and instead by either design, or by incompetence has worsened the the ‘Economic Crisis’ possibly beyond repair.

America needed a President who would ‘Create Jobs’ and instead Barack Obama Policies have destroyed Millions of Jobs, with NO end in sight.

America needed a President who was a ‘Statesman’ and instead Barack Obama has went around the World ‘Bowing and Grinning’ at our Enemies and insulted or belittled our ‘Best Allies’.

America wanted a President who would increase the Security of our Great Nation and instead Barack Obama has spent considerable time dismantling our National Security System.

America needed a President who would Decrease our National Indebtedness and instead Barack Obama has increased that debt by ‘Borrowing and Spending’ in such an unprecedented manner, that NEW terms will have to be coined just to describe his fiscal insanity.

Barack Obama Promised to ‘Fundamentally Transform America’ and he has kept that promise, which may make the United States nothing more - or nothing less - than a ‘Third World Country’.

I also liked the following post by FReeper Yardstick (http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2575435/posts) regarding Obama's religion:

"I think she’s right that Obama is basically a Unitarian. He’s somewhere between atheist and agnostic but has an appreciation for Islam and Christianity to the extent that they are the religions of “communities of suffering”. He has a particular sympathy for Islam since he sees the Islamic world as a victim of American imperialism. Christianity he sees as an authentic expression when practiced by oppressed and underprivileged groups like blacks and poor whites. For them it is an opiate for dealing with painful reality and a means for achieving solidarity with others of their class — but he is contemptuous of Christianity when practiced by the upper and middle classes."
