This poor excuse for a president has given Congress many reasons to impeach him, but clearly they lack the fortitude to really fix the problem.

Instead of protecting America from her enemies, both foreign and domestic, they go about their work in their usual lethargic manner as if nothing is happening. It is extremely disappointing to observe and to have to live with the results. They are all AWOL from their responsibilities but still drawing our taxpayer-paid salary.

You would think being constantly bypassed by executive orders rather than by Congressional approval per the Constitution, would be motivation enough.

Apparently it’s not! Even the soberly obvious creative thought like listening to what Obama says and watching what he does hasn’t worked either. Then again, how many times have we all heard about balancing the budget (let alone passing one) or taking the speculation out of oil prices to keep prices low? I believe that one goes back to about 1974.

Remember, as I recently read, “If you voted for this president in 2008 to prove you are not a racist, vote for someone else in 2012 to prove you are not an idiot.”
