Unfortunately, it’s only all about him

I really wanted President Obama to be successful. Regardless of party, our nation needs to succeed and prosper. However, it’s hard, for me anyway, to accept the far left progressive policies of this president which are only marginally growing our economy. I understand the “inherited the worst recession since World War II” mantra, but if he didn’t have the extreme liberal ideology, he would have had much more success at growth. Transparent? No, executive privilege to cover for his Attorney General. Confused? Yes, his rambling speech after the G20. Honest? No, listen to how he skews the job numbers. Disingenuous? Yes, waited three years to do something he said he couldn’t do and pardoned 800,000 illegal immigrants.

I see him to only be out for himself to stay in power. Everything he’s done this year, he could have done anytime. But chose to wait until the election year to buy votes.

What I find most disturbing is him being another Nixon. What?

Nixon quotes:

“Under the doctrine of separation of powers, the manner in which the president personally exercises his assigned executive powers is not subject to questioning by another branch of government.”

And, “When the President does it, that means that it’s not illegal.”
