He's doing the best that he can do, give him time he's only been President for two years, it takes time to turn the country around, how many times have you heard these excuses put forth by the Democrats to explain why Obama is having a problem selling his policies to the American people? That's where the quote by Jean Giraudoux, a diplomat, comes into play that, “Only the Mediocre are Always at their Best”.

The Democrats proclaim that all the Republicans just say “NO” to what the President proposes or tries to get done, but is that a bad thing if true? Should they just roll over and accede to approve policies that they see as detrimental to our country's best interests? Should they approve of letting the Bush tax cuts expire during an economic downturn? Is proposing a monstrous trillion dollar health care bill something that should be approved while we are rolling up trillion dollar deficits? Should the Republicans approve of policies that will increase our energy costs under the false attempt to control “Mother Nature” by passing a “Cap and Trade (Tax) Climate Bill” that will raise gasoline prices and electric rates for all Americans? These are just a few of the policies that the “evil” Republicans said “NO” to, are they wrong? By saying “NO”, are Obama's critics “racist” (as his supporters falsely claim incessantly) or are they just using everyday, economic common sense. You make the call!

When Obama claims that we (the U.S.A.) are no longer exceptional, he implies that we should be “mediocre” so that other countries don't feel inferior to us. Is he for real? We have been the leader of the world for most of the last century because we were exceptional in practically all aspects of life. Is that really a bad thing? Instead of being a detriment, it has been an asset to everyone in the world – imagine what the world would be like if we were just mediocre instead of exceptional?

Winston Churchill once said that “Capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings, the inherent virtue of socialism (Marxism) is the equal sharing of misery”. The policies of the Obama Administration of “sharing the wealth” (income redistribution), is a form of Marxist doctrine. The Republicans say “NO” to that – are they wrong? Should we be striving to be exceptional or should we just settle for being mediocre? The answer, to me, is a no-brainer, so vote out the “bums” on November 2 to change the direction of our country so we can reclaim our exceptional status.

Winston Churchill once said: "If you're not a liberal by the age of 20 you have no heart, but if you're not a conservative by the age of 40, you have no brains". Well said, P.M. Churchill.
Mediocrity was not a word that Churchill used except to describe his opponents, mostly liberals.
