Obama's Second Term: "Mourning in America."

Posted Wednesday, November 7, 2012, at 4:29 PM

I take you back to 1984 when Ronald Reagan ran for his second term. For those of you who are too young to remember, I want to share a campaign commercial:

"It's morning again in America. Today more men and women will go to work than ever before in our country's history. With interest rates at about half the record highs of 1980, nearly 2,000 families today will buy new homes, more than at any time in the past four years. This afternoon 6,500 young men and women will be married, and with inflation at less than half of what it was just four years ago, they can look forward with confidence to the future. It's morning again in America, and under the leadership of President Reagan, our country is prouder and stronger and better. Why would we ever want to return to where we were less than four short years ago?"

Our current president won his second term, not through inspiration and leadership, but rather by division, false promises, and intimidation.

Our president pitted rich vs. poor and portrayed women and ethnic groups as victims of conservative intolerance. No president has ever been re-elected with his unemployment record. His five-trillion dollar deficit was a 4-year record, and he presided over the most anemic recovery in history, the largest welfare rolls in history, and signed the most partisan legislation in modern history.

A second term defies logic. Be careful what you wish for.

Background: Father of two adult children and grandpa to five. Ideologically, I'm a fiscal conservative and a news junkie who enjoys writing. I believe the 1st Amendment is critical to America's survival. We're free to express our opinions and have the freedom to assemble as citizens, whether it's "Occupy" or "Tea Party" gatherings. Freedom of the press is our government watchdog, and freedom of religion binds us together in a civil, God-fearing society. Oh, by the way, I'm proud of my PHD (public high school diploma) and my Masters in CSI. (Common Sense Intellect).
