Since President Obama took office, we have had many a cirsis... So how did he do? Economy: He made some moves; when they didnt work, he blamed his lack of knowledge of the situation.."worse than I thought" is what he said..."THe shoivel ready jobs were not shovel ready as I thought they were"...was another excuse. Fast and Furious: Down play it all you want but the bottom line is.....we were selling arms to an enemy of an ally WITHOUT our ally knowing it (making it different than the Bush program)....Now, this can be deemed an act of war...definitely a breach in common border agreements..."I was not aware of the program" was what he said. "I, too, was not aware of the program" is what his AG said. "we dont know who knew about it", they both said. And it took over a year to get SOME information. Libya: 4 americans werre killed. One was an ambassador. 'it was a result of the first ammendment' is what the administration told the world (paraphrased, of course). 'It was not a terrorist act' is what they kept on insisting...."We dont want to jump to conclusions until all of the intelligence is reviewed" is what they said.....while jumping to conclusions and saying it was due to an AMerican exercising his right to free speech (love the irony).. So how does he perform when faced with a crisis? Seems to me, he doesnt. Exactly why did those on the left not push for someone else to run on the democratic ticket. I mean...assuming Obama wins...and he likely will in my opinion.....do they really want a guy who doesnt perfom well during a crisis to continue at the helm?
