Ask before voting: What if Obama were white?

Posted: August 28, 2012 - 11:01pm

Editor:

As election day grows closer, the polls show the race is a close one.

The selection of our next president may very well determine the future of our country. Those whose vote will be motivated by race, entitlements and the need to show an integrated government – think about it.

In 2008 a president was elected with no economic or military experience. He is the product of Chicago politics, a community organizer, a first-term senator. His cry was one of “change.” The economy? Employment? Tax reform?

He vowed he would close Guantanamo. It’s still open, those within untried.

He would secure our borders. The “fast and furious” program of gun sales to the members of the cartels resulted in the death of one of our border patrol agents and of an untold number of Mexican citizens. The two-year amnesty granted to a million illegal youths failed to count the parents, grandparents and relatives who are part of their households.

Unemployment remains at 8 to 12 percent. The stimulus failed to produce jobs and he proposes another. Auto manufacturers were given a bailout program rather than bankruptcy protection. The only company that did not take one, Ford, has shown the highest profits. Presidential support of several alternative energy companies provided their financial backing, and multi-millions lost in their bankruptcies. Spending now has resulted in a national debt of $16 trillion, a debt which our children and grandchildren will pay.

Think about it, and before your vote commits to more of the same – think of him as white.
