ran 1.5 miles
Who is our president speaking to in the video above? I find it hard to believe he is addressing America. And here’s more to convey just how out of touch Barack Obama is with the severe realities before us. Our president claimed today that more jobs would be created from the payroll tax he is pushing (posted about it yesterday) and the extension of unemployment insurance than approving the Keystone pipeline. I can accept, based on the day-to-day lies we are told from all corners of Washington, that the payroll tax extension might do a fraction of good that will be immediately gobbled up by the exponential growth of our national debt every 24 hours, but don’t tell an entire country of informed citizens that extending unemployment insurance is more effective than a long-term, productive, and effective project like Keystone.

Enduring the Great Depression, Herbert Hoover, for example, did not float such failed ideas as redistributing wealth or convincing American citizens that they were entitled to that which they had not earned. Herbert Hoover built a dam and employed many Americans with a lengthy task. He gave them purpose and an opportunity to earn their desires. Coincidentally, Hoover does not get much credit as a president because he was the man serving when the Great Depression struck, but he lost his second term to the belief that America's problems should have been solved by private measures and not by the government. He believed in hard work and the gratification it brings to Americans.

Keystone would have a similar outcome but Barack Obama won’t seize the opportunity. One single man possessing such delusions of grandeur and absolute denial of all reality and appreciation for what America truly stands for here and there is okay; that is their right, but the fact that a little over half of this country voted for this man in 2008 and nearly the same number wants to re-elect him is a frightening reality.

Here are some stats and polls from Rasmussen Reports:
  • Barack Obama’s presidential index rating shows that 22% of American voters strongly approve of his performance while 41% strongly disapprove, giving Obama a presidential index rating of –19.
  • Overall, 45% of voters at least somewhat approve of Obama’s performance while 55% at least somewhat disapprove.
  • Only 17% of likely U.S. voters say the country is heading in the right direction.
  • Election 2012: Generic Republican 49%, Obama 41%.
  • Among likely American voters, 26% prefer government-managed economy.
671.0 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day101.
