How can people still defend him?

So I now wonder if all those on the left feel a little taken advantage of and foolish? If not, they must be living on another planet. “I will close Gitmo immediately.” “You can keep your health insurance, period,” 27 times on TV. “You can keep your doctor.” “You will save an average of $2,500 per family on premiums.” “I only heard of it when you did on the news,” Benghazi, IRS, NSA, guns to Mexican drug lords, and the roll out of Obamacare website. How about those drones, wow, he is the drone master; hey what’s a little collateral damage, kids, women, innocent civilians.

“It is unpatriotic to vote for a higher debt ceiling,” spoken while then a senator about Bush. Period. I guess that makes him unpatriotic by his own standards doesn’t it?” “I will tackle immigration reform in my first year.” Transparency? The nuclear option is unthinkable and dead wrong. This guy is a bald-face liar. Syria, how’s that red line doing, thank God for Vladimir Putin pulling his bacon out of the fire, at what cost though? Obama’s a worldwide laughing stock.

He’s the king of “do as I say not as I do.” Longest period of high unemployment in history, whoops, sorry, that is Bush’s fault five years later. Debt higher in five years than all past presidents put together, now there’s a stat that should scare the heck out of you. But it doesn’t seem to. The left have too much invested in this completely inadequate leader. I mean really, this guy had absolutely no credentials to run our country and be the most powerful man on the planet.
