Reelecting Obama Would Be a Mockery of Democracy
by Frank J. IMAO
So US poverty is on track to be at its highest level since the 1960s. With that little tidbit and all the other things — the credit downgrade, the continued high unemployment, the skyrocketing debt — makes we really wonder why in the world are we even considering reelecting Obama at all? I mean, he’s as big an objective failure as president as possible, so why is he even a contender? The whole point of a democracy is being able to remove bad leaders, so why should Obama have a chance when he’s the sort of horrible leader usually only dictatorships are subjected to (and even there, he probably wouldn’t last long)? When the story of the 2012 election is written in the history books, it should be just one sentence:
Obama wasn’t reelected as he wasn’t a very good president.
Why shouldn’t it be that simple? Otherwise, what’s the point of electing leaders?
