The economy is moving toward a genuine depression. Unemployment ranges between 15 and 17 million. Homeowners are losing their property. Energy costs are going up, as is health coverage. The U.S. is experiencing the most disastrous environmental happening in its history (the BP oil spill). The violence in Mexico crosses over into the U.S. daily through our porous border along with a constant stream of illegal immigrants. The morale and confidence of the American public is at an all time low.
Yet our president chooses to file a lawsuit against Arizona for having the audacity to pass legislation that would allow Arizona to enforce the existing federal immigration law. Obama is obviously pandering to the Hispanic vote since he knows that come November his world will change in a major way.
Obama’s Department of Justice will sue Arizona but will not sue those states/cities that openly defy the federal immigration law by declaring themselves to be “sanctuary” sites. These same Department of Justice personnel chose to drop an obvious civil rights violation by the “New Black Panthers.”
Obama chooses to embrace a recess appointment of a radical liberal as Medicare/Medicaid director, a man who has openly endorsed health care rationing. Congress and the American People were kept out of this process.
Obama promised openness and what we got was a government run behind closed doors. It is obvious that Obama is more interested in furthering the liberal agenda than the will of the American people. Is this really the change that America wanted?
