Homeland Security Sends Millions to Border Checkpoint in Montana as Grave Importance

This is what happens when you put someone inexperience to run something of high importance. I bet you were thinking I would have said Obama, but that is beside the point. I am referring to Homeland Security Director Janet Napolitano.

Her performance as director to keep this country safe has been lackluster. The latest criticism is her handling of federal stimulus money for her department. Napolitano’s decision to hand over money to smaller border checkpoints for renovations is more important than beefing up security over busier, top priority areas. It shows a lack of common sense. To allow Napolitano to spend an absorbent amount of economic stimulus in wasteful projects is reflective how this administration is handling this economic debacle. It’s is a gross dereliction of duty in a bottomless pit of wasting taxpayers money.

Because of the pressure as it came to the attention to various Senators, Napolitano decided to halt further projects on the border until careful review how the projects were selected and will announce her findings. This is a total 180 degrees turnaround. So far, Homeland Security has refused to release any information regarding to priority list and its justifications. But as we all know how this government works, she is pandering to the public. It is already known that construction contracts are already been signed and been in the progress for months.

This all stem from a report that Whitetail, Montana received $15 million to renovate their border checkpoint. This is a small place up in Montana with very little traffic. I heard approximately three to five travelers cross that checkpoint daily. I couldn’t believe Napolitano felt this is of grave importance. This is not protecting the influx of illegal aliens coming from Mexico. This is protecting us from an influx of Canadians.

This is a waste of our taxpayer’s dollars. We are so much in debt. We need to be more frugal in our approach on what we spend. We should spend what we need and not what we want.

Obama Mystic has Evaporated

What happened to the man we called the “messiah” in the White House? What happened to the cult figure that tried to transgress race from his presidential campaign speeches? What happened to the man who wanted to be the citizen of the world? What happened to man whose overwhelming desire to be president got there and found out that he doesn’t have the experience for it? What happened to the 70 percent approval rating before he entered office to see it plummeted in the mid-40 percentile?

His name is Barack Obama and his immortality has been unmasked to what he truly is and that is a fast talking, flowery worded politician. He is a used-car salesman with a very nice suit.

Barack Obama is a known left-wing Marxist. His belief is more Socialist. I am so amazed how so many people are duped by this individual. I cannot believe how anyone can vote for him. I am surprise how the general voting public only sees the color of the skin, and feels if they don’t vote for him, they may be called a racist. Is it guilt? Is it reparations for something the whites done to the blacks generations ago? I call it stupid and ridiculous. Whatever happened voting on the candidate’s policies, their background, and their voting record?

I thought Obama’s associations with radicals like terrorist William Ayers, a terrorist sympathizer Rashid Khalidi, and a racist Rev. Jeremiah Wright would be the ending clincher of Obama’s political career, but no. I thought for sure Obama’s statement wanting “to spread the wealth” is the signal that he supports socialism, but no. I thought the books written by Obama would tell people how he views white people as demons and how to deal with them, but no. I thought siding with Pelosi and Reid, whose socialist agenda is quite known, would show the American people that Obama sides more to the left than right of center, but no. So, I guess the American voters are truly blinded by ignorance. It is the only explanation why there are so many voters remorse right now. Hope and change is a mere bumper sticker slogan than a possible chance to see it in reality.

I cannot stand this president and his pompous arrogance. During Obama’s first State of the Union address, his vision for America is purely fantasy because perception is not reality. Obama’s ideology would have been an obviously dramatic transformation that America could have witness. To see the Federal government grow exponentially faster under this current president, we have seen the government tried to overhaul the banking industry, the mortgage companies, the oil companies, the auto industry, and now, the healthcare industry.

We care a right of center country. The latest polls have Americans seeing themselves more conservative. To have something that is too dramatic of a change would cause any individual to have an anxiety attack. This is something Obama assumed when he won the presidential election. Obama thought he had a mandate to change the ideology of America. Instead, the people vote him as president for historical reasons and that is to put an African American person as president. There is no other reason. I surely wouldn’t vote for him because of his experience, his promises or his voting record.

Because of the lie Obama tried to disguise has come to the open, he is nothing but a lousy politician. The people who voted for him understood they made a mistake and the poll number show it. Independents have run away from him. Moderate Democrats are throwing Obama under the bus. Moderate Republicans are moving more to the right because these idiots know they will lose their senatorial or congressional seat if they sided with the “false prophet.” The kryptonite that has staggered “The One” was his infallible mouth. Every word that comes from his mouth is a contradiction or a blatant lie. The only thing truthful this president promised is to make this America the way he sees fit and that is weak and government dependent.

You cannot tell the American people that the system is totally broken and major reform is needed if the cure is more entitlement programs. If Medicare and Social Security is going bankrupt, why start another wasteful program like Universal Healthcare. How can cutting $500 billion in Medicare benefits have no effect on care? How can add trillions of dollars to the deficit and claim you can cut the national debt in 3 years? This is the mistake Obama has committed and the people see it. No more will the ordinary citizen be taken as fools. We have begun to express our distain for this president. Obama has been incredulous with his promise, which led to an inspiration of mistrust.

Obama is in trouble and to see rebound from a 46 percent approval rating is a tremendous feat. From messiah to an ordinary person, the mystic of Barack Obama has evaporated. The cloud that blinded those who believed he was the chosen one has been lifted. His popularity is border line because there are folks who refuse to call themselves racist. Obama’s desperation to reverse his ordinariness has brought him to speak to our children in the classroom. He feels that a new bred of cult can be organized with the children. None the less, it is still a crushing disappointment for a man that people hoped to be another Martin Luther King or a John F. Kennedy.

Obama Approval Rating Hits 46%

Can you recall any president who came into office with a very high approval rating, but to see a plummeting rating that is embarrassing to remark? If you say Jimmy Carter, you are incorrect. Carter had a high approval rating in the mid-60’s and his approval rating starting to plummet within 6 months. The correct answer is our current president.

Do you recall President Obama riding into office nine months ago with an astonishing 70 percent approval rating? In a most recent poll, Rasmussen placed the President's approval rating at just 46%.

Why has Obama fallen so far, so fast?

New York Time’s columnist David Brooks writes that the Obama administration “has joined itself at the hip of the liberal leadership in Congress.” Obama had many opportunities to untie his administration from the policies of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, but failed to stop their reckless liberal spending spree.

Brooks says, “The White House has failed to veto measures, like the pork-laden omnibus spending bill, that would have demonstrated independence and fiscal restraint. By force of circumstances and by design, the president has promoted one policy after another that increase spending and centralizes power in Washington.”

We have long known that Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid are out of touch with mainstream America. After all, Nancy Pelosi's nationwide approval rating is below 40%. In the short time since taking office President Obama has proven that he intends to follow their failed path of big spending and government expansion.

But is worth to note, the New York Time’s columnist stated that in the history of polling, no newly elected American president has fallen this far this fast. Brooks say, “Anxiety is now pervasive.”

For those who have buyer’s remorse that voted for Obama, I forgive you!

You made the mistake. Now, it’s your turn to fix it by speaking up!

It is Bush's Fault

As September 11, 2009, approaches, I wonder what the media will do? Will they remind us that there is still a threat on America, or will they downplay the day by televising healthcare reform or the fires in California? It seems utterly despicable that we have been complacent because we haven’t been hit on American soil for eight years now and no one gives a “rat’s ass” about it.

The mood in Capitol Hill been more political and it is an outrage that the Democrats have to stoop so low to politicalize national security. With detainees in Club Gitmo being release (possibly on our own soil) to going after CIA agents, who kept this country safe, with “illegal” interrogations, this Administration has no moral gumption, but to destroy this country. With Universal Healthcare going sour and constant missteps and gaffes, president Obama goes on the war path and blames George Bush “43" for his woes.

George Bush? Please! Obama tells the country that he inherited a $1.3 trillion budget deficit. Let me clarify. It is not $1.3 trillion dollars. Bush was responsible in passing the soon-to-be Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner $700 billion stimulus budget at the end of his term to save the banking industry, but Bush took only $350 billion to stop the bleeding and it worked. The other $350 billion was left under the next Congress for approval with the new Administration. Besides, this current “president-elect” decided to pass another $787 billion stimulus pork spending budget, kill the Bush tax cuts, only trim $100 million from his $1 trillion budget, expand the nation debt to $10 trillion in 10 years, and weaken our national security. Now, you tell me what’s wrong with this picture.

For every Obama woe, it is George Bush’s fault. But I think that American people are smart enough not to be fooled by this immature rookie’s ploy. This is Obama’s problem now because he created it. Now, Obama has a problem in Afghanistan. No media is reporting the deaths occurring over there. Unlike when Bush was in office, the media joyfully reported the number of deaths on a daily base. I think the current count of American causalities is near 800, but who is counting. We still have Defense Secretary Gates and Gen. Petraeus from the Bush era still working. You remember them. Both men successfully brought Iraq from the abyss to some kind of normalcy. The only difference is the new leader of the free world has not idea what he is doing (Obama). These men are soldiers who listen to orders and Obama treats the war on terrorism as a police problem. Don’t blame the soldiers. Put blame on the leader!

It seems everything Obama touches turns out to be blunders. It is apparent that he wants America dependent on the government. From single payer system to “pay to play” mentality, this Administration’s role is to weaken the will of the American people. By ignoring Social Security, rationing healthcare, taxing the American people, and weakening national security, I cannot formulate any other reason beside crippling this country.

The motto “We should not let a good crisis goes to waste” and “I believe in spreading the wealth,” should be taken seriously. They are not bumper sticker slogans. It is the Administration telling you that this is what they are going to do. Obama feels most Americans don’t care because they know we are mostly complacent.

If you allow this Administration do this to you, then you deserve the misery that will follow. America, you need to speak up louder every day because Obama is hedging that this anger you are displaying will dissipate in the waning months. Don’t let that “jerk” win!
