Since Barack Obama was first elected president in 2008, nothing good has come to pass for the American people. Our economy has gone to hell and still continues to get worse. All the lofty promises this incompetent loon made have failed to materialize.

This president followed through on one thing: He has managed to fundamentally change our nation from a respected world power to being as big of a loser as he and his useless policies in governing are.

Let’s look at just a few of the current things on our plate that we are presently facing while our president busies himself with endless rounds of golf, his regular vacations, attending his many fundraising events and his drop-in appearances on “Late Night with Jimmy Kimmel” or “David Letterman.”

We have a Marine who has been in a Mexican prison for four months because he made a wrong turn in his car, with not a word on securing his release from our president. Our border remains open to the world — no action to correct the problem from Washington. China is “rattling its sabers” at our neighbors on the Pacific, Russia has invaded Ukraine, the Islamic State is tearing up the Middle East, killing and beheading children and two Americans. Our closest ally, Israel, stands alone, fighting just for the right to live or exist with — guess what? — no response from our president or our government.

Any Americans who dare to question or dissent this ultra-corrupt administration will be beset with harassment from the IRS or some other government agency, at the “green light” from Obama or his horde of cronies. Oh, by the way, if you’re a Christian, beware. If Obama has his way, your days are numbered.

The Republicans in general, and House Speaker John Boehner in particular, don’t have the guts to stand up for our rights. They are lily-livered cowards who have sold out the American people. The Islamic State is, from reliable sources, already on our shores.

What is it going to take to wake Americans up? Do we have to have our women and children killed or beheaded in our own backyard to realize the hour is late?

I fear another 9/11 attack is imminent if we wait on this clueless president to get up off his sorry butt and make some plans to protect our nation. May almighty God have mercy on America, a nation with no leadership.
