Obama blew it

I don’t know about others, but I have no use for anyone who lies. I have no respect for President Obama because he has lied to all of us. He promised a transparent government and has “stonewalled” on so many issues I can’t list them in 200 words.

He promised an energy policy to assure our country’s future and has “stonewalled” the Canadian pipeline to help his buddy, Warren Buffet, who owns the railroad transporting crude to our country. He promised we could keep our insurance and save $2,500 a year, and no further comment is necessary. He promised to cut the deficit and it’s gone from $10.6 to $17.6 trillion. He got on comedy shows and in front of the UN and said our Ambassador and three others were murdered because of a YouTube video. He used executive privilege to block investigation of why the government sent thousands of automatic weapons to drug gangs in Mexico. He promised to unite the country and uses partisan politics, class warfare and racist implications in many of his speeches.

He had an amazing potential and blew it by failing to work for all of the country.
