Obama would fall like a Meringue Pie if anybody, a USA member of Homo Sapien species, Mr or Ms nephew of my Uncle Sam, Joe or Jane regular square, 98.6 would say boo I’ll run.

Obama got Health Care Reform passed. Nearly every president over the last 4 or 5 decades has tried and failed to get any serious movement on health care. Obama got a stimulus package passed early in his term that economist universally say created nearly 3M jobs and kept things from getting a lot worse. Obama is challenging the old school (plutocracy) of the Republicans. They need for America to fail so they can blame it on Obama. He is trying to do what we voted him in for. Obama is the only one trying to come up with solutions. Obama wants all American’s to give equally (sacrifice) to help fix the economy. Republicans would make the Bush era tax breaks permanent and kick grandma to the curb to pay for it. The Republicans in the House have been on holiday for the past 9 months. Boehner’s tan has never looked better. What we really need is to clean up the Congress, not the presidency. Besides, which one of the totally dysfunctional, lying, jack wagon Republican presidential candidates could you vote for (and keep you lunch down at the same time)? Here’s an article that totally blows away the Republican argument on taxes.

We need a good man for president, but one with a fighting instinct, like Theodore Roosevelt, or Franklin Roosevelt, or Harry Truman, or Abraham Lincoln.

Obama? He’s not a fighter. He has a compulsive desire to be liked by everybody. That’s nice for high school president of the student body, but the American presidency needs to be a fighter by nature.

Harry Truman almost had a rebellion in the US Senate when he fired General Douglas MacArthur in 1951. General MacArthur’s power and public stature far, far surpassed that of any military figure today. Yet Truman fired him, causing tremendous tumult in the Senate, the military and the news media.

Both Roosevelts were likewise fighters.

Obama simply doesn’t have it in him. It’s not his nature. He is a great guy, but not the type needed to lead America. He can’t even get the military out of Iraq or Afghanistan. Doesn’t want to question the judgment of the generals!

If Obama were an attorney in private practice, I would never hire him. His negotiation strategy is always the same: he simply gives the farm completely away without a fight. He is not a fighter.

We need to dump Obama before its too late.

I nominate Warren Buffet for president. He’s a good man like Obama, but he’s a very tough, smart negotiator.
