Your View: Obama is held to lower presidential standards

Nov. 24, 2012 @ 01:17 AM

Despite all the caterwauling by the media “wizards of smart” concerning the reasons you elected, not once, but twice, the least qualified, most economically illiterate candidate ever, to oversee the world’s largest economy, the explanation is actually quite simple.
The reason none of the election indicators/rules of the past 75 years applied was because BHO was our first Affirmative Action president, and was thereby held to a much lower standard than any previous president.
More incredibly, those most affected by his disastrous policies flocked to him in huge percentages, mostly because he looked like them. Ask Samuel L. Jackson.
We have a rapidly expanding number of, “what can my country (neighbors) do for me,” takers littering of our formerly great country.
De Tocqueville told us in the 1800s: “A democratic government is the only one in which those who vote for a tax can escape the obligation to pay it.”  And, “The American Republic will endure, until politicians realize they can bribe the people with their own money.”  Bingo!
The unprecedented, since 2008, malpractice of BHO’s media sycophants was also helpful. The best of many good examples was their refusal to dispatch Woodward & Bernstein to investigate the horribly mismanaged, then lied about, Benghazi disaster.
Compare this with their “blood in the water” Watergate feeding frenzy concerning, where no one was murdered by mortars being fired at them, and no ambassador was brutally tortured prior to being murdered.  That president was forced to resign.
Six weeks after the truth was known about the Benghazi attack, we were still being fed lies about some obscure video causing a “spontaneous demonstration.”  Then 24 hours after the attack BHO headed to Las Vegas to fundraise, his favorite activity because he gets to mingle with the middle class!
Just as he’s unconstrained by the Constitution, or tradition, none of the usual rules apply to him!

Thanks for school board election support
I would like to thank the people who supported me in the recent election to be a member of the Davidson County Board of Education. I realize that this position carries with it major responsibilities. I pledge to all the citizens that I will try to do what is best for all of our students as I work with the other board members and the Administration during the next four years.
