While listening to President Obama yesterday, I was struck by the many contradictions between theman giving the speech and the actions of his administration. Don’t get me wrong, I supported President Obama and will in the next election. I remembered a speech he made against “regime change” and “nation building”, and here we are engineering regime change in Libya and nation-building in Afghanistan. I heard speeches about “Wall Street Insiders” and see more Wall St. insiders in his administration than President Bush. Maybe the most enigmatic of all, I remembered a speech about “transparency in government”, yet his administration has already prosecuted more whistle-blowers in three years that all Administrations before him.
The list can go on and on, so I wonder: who is in charge there? Does President Obama relegate so much that he is clueless as to what they are doing, or is there a different man who sits in the White House? Is there a man behind the curtain? Can it be that we just wanted to hope so much that we have been blinded to some major faults? I don’t know about that, but I do know this: President Obama at his worst is far better for working families than any of the GOP candidates running right now.
BTW, wish you would have voted for Hillary now?
