Letter: Obama had his chance and failed



Not so long ago, President Obama and his wondrous financial gurus promised that $800 billion would save the United States and put Americans back to work. Result: the rich got a lot richer and the poor got a lot poorer and unemployment (actual unemployment) has remained at horrendous levels. Now his highness wants more hundreds of billions of dollars to save the United States and put Americans back to work. This is the same person who promised to close tax loopholes for companies who ship jobs overseas. With Democrats in the majority of both houses of Congress for two years, legislation aimed at keeping that promise did not emerge.

And now this glib, grinning, lying president and his minions (Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., Sen. Maria Cantwell, D-Wash., Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., et al) say believe us, we will put Americans back to work while allowing Mexican truckers free access to the United States, putting even more Americans out of work. Enough is enough. Whom were these officials elected to represent, the United States? Or Mexico, South Korea, China, the Middle East?

It is time to send someone new to the White House. Obama is a miserable failure.
