Wake up to what Obama's doing


Newburyport Daily News

---- — To the editor:

President Obama is living an absolutely lavish lifestyle — how can so many liberals think that he is doing a good job? I’ll give Obama this: He is charismatic; very personable — but all these vacations in our low economy? Obamacare cuts Medicare. And there will be a trillion more in taxes because of Obamacare.

President Obama is said to be a “friend of Israel.” I don’t see how that could be while he is sending at least a million dollars to Egypt. Egypt is not a friend to us or to Israel. Why is he calling for global warming (which is really only a normal cycle that the earth goes through) to be an actuality? One reason or excuse, if you will, is so he can stop coal use and hence a lot of jobs too, by the way. Also he can nix any new factories — there go more jobs lost.

Obama gives a speech while standing under the picture of the terrorist Arafat — that’s OK, right? And yet when he spoke at a Catholic University, the cross had to be covered up.

There are other wastes in his establishment too, like the billions spent to study the sex habits of snails or ducks’ genitalia. Now, Obama’s temper tantrum is putting American lives at risk because he is furious that the Republicans did not back down when he tried to bully them into caving on sequestration. He is determined to make sure that the federal agency cuts are in places that will be most noticeable and hurtful to the public, in an effort to turn the public’s wrath toward the Republicans. Ironically, it was Obama who came up with sequestration in the first place back in the summer of 2011.

Illegals and criminals are released from jail, and who knows how long we can arm ourselves even for our own protection? You won’t get the whole truth of the news unless you watch Fox News.

Wake up, America, be warned and be aware of the truth!
