Obama invited this vote by stating the upcoming elections will be a referendum on "my" policies. He was handed a resounding rejection; and yet he has doubled down on the same policies.
It should be very apparent our president and his administration are not providing any leadership, and our nation is drifting into a very dangerous state.
I for sure don't believe our president will act to protect our freedom, constitution, or our safety. He refuses to recognize our enemy, the "radical Islamic terrorists." His behavior is child-like.
Good News: I have been closely watching our newly elected representatives and senators and I see hope that they do have a positive attitude and common sense to turn our nation around to once again be a nation of hope and leadership for the world.
Elections do have consequences. Obama was elected based upon his stated goal to change our nation as it is. Well for sure he accomplished that, and the people in 2014 voted to reject those policies. Obama's policies have placed us into the position of weakness we find ourselves in today.
Now we must insist that our elected representatives once again represent us, and not themselves. We have a very large hole to dig out of. In 2016 we need to elect people who first of all are proud of the United States, not an apologist as Obama has been.
As I see the lineup of Republicans and Democrats, there are too many old "has been" and wannabees. For sure electing another idealist that has never managed anything would be, just what we have today. We need a new car smell.
The same is true for the representatives and senators who will be up for reelection in 2016. We owe our children and grandchildren an opportunity to follow their dreams not a mounting debt and person's obsession with political correctness and global warming.
