It has been a long five years, our Obama nightmare. Sadly, there are no signs that things will improve anytime soon. Of course we know about the damage the President has done to our economy, by massively increasing the debt, raising taxes and growing government. The results have been catastrophic to say the least: a national debt of $17 trillion and a labor force participation rate at the lowest level since 1978. Last month, an amazing 300,000 people left the workforce altogether, joining the 90 million Americans who have checked out of our economy. Inevitably, there will be more increases in food stamp usage and other forms of government assistance, as more Americans will be unable to provide for their needs on their own.

Along with the tragic economic consequences of Obama’s policies, Americans are now witnessing the dangerous effects of a left wing, inexperienced community organizer serving as Commander in Chief.

In Egypt, Hosni Mubarak, an ally of America, was abandoned by President Obama, even though he kept the peace for 30 years. The result of our abandonment was that the Muslim Brotherhood, a terrorist organization, assumed power and shredded the country’s constitution. The Egyptian military with the support of millions of Egyptians have reasserted power, but no thanks to the Obama administration, who remained on the sidelines.

In 2011, the President ordered the U.S. to support a NATO military mission to topple the dictator Gaddafi. The result is that the country is in utter chaos, ruled by tribes and lawlessness. Americans were horrified when our consulate was attacked in Benghazi by terrorists. After lying to the American people for weeks, the Obama administration finally admitted it was a terrorist attack. Incredibly, after one year, there have been no arrests and no justice for the families of the four brave victims. Witnesses to the attack have been prevented from testifying to Congress about the events of that fateful night. It is obvious that the administration is engaged in a rather unseemly cover-up of what really happened on September 11, 2012.

In Syria, the actions of the President and his team have bordered on total incompetence. Almost every wrong step has been made. Today, we are left with a situation where the U.S. has limited influence, while the power of our adversary Russia has increased tremendously.
