For the first time in my adult life, I'm not proud of my country.
I'm ashamed that we allow the bumbling Obama bureaucracy to systematically destroy our once proud nation.
I'm ashamed that we tolerate a government-controlled media that dutifully feeds us White House propaganda daily.
Obama's rhetoric and spin-machine eclipses his leadership and executive skills.
Great One: Get that stimulus bill on my desk or the country will go in the tank; unemployment will soar to 8 percent. Hurry.
The congressional puppets obey. Result? Unemployment soared - despite the infusion of billions of dollars - to more than 9.3 percent and is still climbing.
Now, months later, Great-One says, well, we expected that.
Great One: GM is too big to fail, it's bailout time.
Congressional puppets obey. Result? GM failed. What a shocker.
Now, along with the United Auto Workers, we own Government Motors.
Car manufacturing is the new federal entitlement program, jobs for Democratic Party loyalists courtesy of U.S. taxpayers. Apply at Acorn.
Great One graces Omaha Beach on June 6 and speaks platitudes about the sacrifices made by America's armed forces to liberate Europe.
The same week, an Islam convert guns down two Army recruiters on American soil. Commander in chief Barack Hussein Obama makes neither a public outcry nor voices sympathy for their families.
Conversely, he couldn't get on TV quick enough to express his indignation over the cowardly murder of an abortion doctor.
Intolerance is unacceptable, he cried.
Meanwhile, his ex-spiritual leader, the irrepressible Rev. Wright, complained "them Jews in the White House won't let me speak to him."
A few days later, a shooting erupts at the Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C., just blocks from the White House.
Now Great One and his co-conspirators, Reed and Pelosi, want to release photos of Gitmo detainees despite strong objections by Gens. Petraeus and Odiemo because they will endanger the lives of deployed soldiers and Marines.
Yet they stonewall the release of "memos" that report how American lives were saved by interrogations.
Coming soon, the Great One's vision for your health care. Isn't this how communist dictators rule a country? Proud, I am not.
