President Barack Obama has been heavily criticized over the past five years for his job performance. Since becoming the 44th president, promising a drastic change in the State of the Union, 2013 has been failure after failure as well as blatant disregard of our Constitution.
President Obama has hit a record low approval rating among Americans. The failure of Healthcare.gov, which represents the promise of affordable and easily obtainable Healthcare, must be a big culprit for the 40% approval rating.
President Obama has given his perspective on the use of polling; “If you're measuring this by polls, my polls have gone up and down a lot through the course of my career," Obama said. "If I was interested in polling, I wouldn't have run for president." Either way, they haven’t gone down this far.
With the recent drone strike which hit a wedding convoy in Yemen and killed 15 civilians, the NSA spying on hundreds of thousands of U.S. citizens as well as countless bad judgment calls by the Obama Administration, it’s no surprise that Americans are increasingly opposed to the current president.
President Obama believes that there has been a large improvement in the American economy this past year. It doesn’t take an Economist to see right through that one. As an American, what do you see around you? Unemployment has skyrocketed as the American dollars’ value is in question with other Nations, as well as the IMF.
If President Barack Obama truly views 2013 as a successful year we may be in for a rather wild ride between now and 2016. The Constitution ought to be put to use by this Administration or America will continue to suffer.
