Day662 Thursday 06/21/12

ran 4.1 miles  
President Barack Obama is not to be blamed for all of our nation's problems. Many presidents and many more politicians came before him who contributed to our present state and the disaster that has become our economy. But, he is to be blamed for not moving in a proper direction to move back at least a mere inch from the financial cliff we are sliding off of. In fact, he seems to be deliberately edging closer to the gravity just beyond the cliff. 

Each day seems to be getting worse and worse for our president and his reelection chances. He still blames Bush for everything under the sun (including "Fast and Furious" as of today), but he needs to answer for why his landmark legislative achievement (Affordable Health Care Act, which is exactly the opposite of what the name implies) is on the eve of more than likely being ruled unconstitutional, why his stimulus packages have resulted in nothing more than further national debt, why he won't take common sense opportunities like the Keystone Pipeline, and why unemployment won't budge, just to name a few. 

This president had two years to do anything he wanted with control of Congress and those two years have amounted to debt on unborn Americans and a health care law that, as I said earlier, is probably going to be ruled unconstitutional and illegal in a matter of days. The second half of his term has been uneventful because Americans were so at odds with him for what he did in the first half that they fired an enormous amount of Democratic Congressmen and women and replaced them with the exact opposite. Congressmen and women who vowed to not raise taxes and to stop our president from continuing his destructive path. Our current Congress has been named the most "do nothing" Congress in American history by many pundits. That name was intended to be an insult but I think it is a worthy accomplishment. The fewer laws, regulations, and tax increases they make the more free and prosperous we as individuals are. 

21.0 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day297.
