I’m sincerely proud of President Obama.
These latest threats of defaulting on the debt ceiling are the kind of immature, spiteful behavior that any mother knows only gets a parent or a leader more of the same! If one gives into a spoiled child-type who wants his own way, one creates a real monster. We’ll be owned by that monster down the road, in the future, and there will be no point in whining about it because we will have created it. By not insisting on respect for our word and refusal to accept extortion and threats as par for the way things are, we open the door to allow more of these kinds of tricks again and again for the next three years of this president’s term. No thanks!
This nation should not be run by these kinds of dysfunctional tactics.
President Obama absolutely cannot back down now. He cannot negotiate, make a deal, or even confer about compromise — not until the Republicans open the government 100 percent and stop threatening him. So stop it already! GET A CLUE.
I have had my days of really being angered by this mess for a variety of reasons. I finally realized it wouldn’t do me any good to keep upsetting myself over what I cannot control. I’m praying now daily for God to bless and keep this president and primarily to keep him strong. I’m also praying that those who are trying to ruin him will come to their senses and begin to act as they should. Every time I watch the news now, I pray at the end of it. This is helping me and my aggravation level. 🙂
No matter what happens or what we lose as a nation, we will not have a spineless worm of a president at the helm. We won’t have someone who caved into extortion and childish tactics that should shame grown men and women. We can be proud of this man for having some guts.
President Obama I am so proud of you! I am grateful that you are the president of this fine country. May God bless you greatly and I thank Him for blessing us with you at the helm of these United States of America.
