America is full of brilliant and experienced people who know how to run a business, who know how to inspire people, who know how provide jobs; but, Obama refuses to admit that they even exist. They weren't in the classroom with him when his head was filled with the nonsense that he claims will save us all.

He spends more than $1,000,000,000 every day buying oil from foreign countries and he spends more than $2,000,000,000 every day maintaining a military that is largely employed to protect that foreign oil but he will not allow a pipe line to be built that would allow us to buy oil from Canada. How many billions of dollars would it cost our military to defend us against Canada? In addition to that, he refuses to let us drill for oil in Utah, Colorada and Wyoming, where there are oil reserves that would last over 100 years - certainly long enough for scientists to find other energy sources that are cost effective and practical. North Dakota is drilling. Obama has locked up the lands.

Obama gloats while America suffers.

Obama's worst enemy is his own arrogance. Like the arrogant rooster who thinks his crowing every morning causes the sun to rise. Its his way or the highway and he will never admit he is wrong on anything. So its full speed ahead down one dead end road after another and when things don't turn out like he thinks they should, its always someone else's fault!

Day after day of articles that slam the president to the ground probably don't help.

Thid Barker said: "when things don't turn out like he thinks they should, its always someone else's fault!"

You should maybe read the article which stated... "Rather than laying blame for problems on the greedy 1 percent, or the previous administration, or congressional GOP saboteurs, he described America's problems are...

Wait that's not what the radio says?
They said Obama blamed the 1% and Bush and the GOP congress.
Were they watching the same speech?

Oh Mike & Third Barker it was so good to read your comments. I know what is coming for the rest of the day, and I get so tired of it.

How many advisers does 0nama have from the business world? How many profs from prestigious universities who have never had to meet a pay cheque for someone else - who have gone through school including their phd without ever running a business? I think we all know the answer.

Dare I say, Des News, that he has lied about his health care (and Benghazi etc., etc.)and how does this give us any confidence in anything he now tells us?

What you are enjoying is called an echo chamber.
