He's doing the best that he can do, give him time he's only been President for three and a half years, it takes time to turn the country around. How many times have you heard this excuse 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 passing a monstrous trillion dollar health care bill something that should be approved while we are rolling up over trillion dollar deficits every year? 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, or maybe they just “KNOW” (not the “NO' the Democrats whine about) what is best for America. You make the call!

When Obama claims that we (the U.S.A.) is 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, which is right out of the Karl Marx playbook. If 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, we voted out many of the “bums” in 2010 to hopefully change the direction of our country, so we could try to reclaim our exceptional status once again. Let's hope the Republicans will do the right thing and that the electorate completes the job in November 2012 by retiring or “Liar in Chief”, Barack Hussein Obama, and send him back to the corrupt City of Chicago.

It strikes me that the Democrats just stand for what they think other people will fall for. How else can sane people vote for 4 more years of Obama's failed policies unless they fall for the lies and obfuscation of the Democrats. Ignorance can be cured but stupidity is forever.

Should we settle for a mediocre president just because he is black?

Would these same people support Obama if he was "lily white"?

This ia an election of competence (Romney) vs. incompetence (Obama).

Now go do the right thing.
