I’m sick and tired of the President of the United States campaigning like he was running for office. Instead of beating the campaign trail for desperate Democrats, why isn’t he chastising the congress for leaving town before finishing their work?

He believes that going to Pennsylvania campaigning for a “lowly” congressman is going to create jobs. Where is congress? We are paying these pinheads over $165,000 per year to do a job and they work less than my kids go to school. Oh yeah, schools are failing too. Speaking of public schools, who ever heard of tenure for a high school teacher?

The unemployment rate is officially 9.6% and when you include people that are off unemployment benefits and have stopped looking for work, that rate climbs to 17%. And the President of the United States is out on the stump telling Democrats that ‘Republicans want black people to stay home on Election Day’. How insulting.

I would just prefer all liberals stay home on Election Day. As well as all those moderates that said ‘We can afford to pay for everybody’s health care, we have the money’. Well not anymore. Obama used it to pay off the unions in the stimulus bill and now there isn’t any money left.

I am sick of the community activist spending time blaming everybody else for his bad economy. You see, if he would urge congress to extend the Bush tax cuts indefinitely business would boom. Well maybe not like the “bubble-boom” of Goldman Sachs, Fannie and Freddie, but at least double the anemic growth of the past year.

There are billions of dollars sitting on the sidelines in the private sector because this diabolical president has “had his boot on the neck” of business since passing Obamacare and threatening us with the Cap and Tax Bill. It has passed the Democrat controlled House of Representatives, but thank God it is “stalled” in the senate.

Whenever Obama says, ‘let me be clear’ you know he is about to make some ridiculous statement that would never be said by a President with any experience. Let me be clear! After the 2010 election, Republicans will have 51 Senate seats and 259 seats in the House of Representatives. Is that clear enough?
