Philip Hodges over at Political Outcast had a funny opinion piece. He says President Obama is like a bad roommate:
I had a roommate in college who never did the dishes. I’d come home and find him on the couch watching TV. The kitchen would smell like left over Tuna Helper, and the sink would be full. I would start to do the dishes, and my roommate would say from the couch, speaking over the TV, “I was gonna do’em!” But he never did. And he never got off the couch to help me. It got to the point where I was mildly amused at the whole thing, and I would do the dishes just so that I could hear him say, “I was gonna do’em.”
I listened to Obama’s speech Thursday night on the radio. I was laughing at it with my wife because he kind of reminded me of my roommate. If Romney wins in November, and the Republicans start to turn things around (fingers crossed), Obama will be there watching, saying, “I was gonna do it!” But he never did. He had his chance. He made things worse, and he didn’t do anything that he promised.
Fewer people are employed now than four years ago. He promised that unemployment would go down to 6%, but it’s never gone below 8% the past three years, and that’s after they’ve fudged the numbers to make it as low as possible.
Obama said four years ago that Bush was “unpatriotic” for adding $4 trillion to the national debt, but he has added over $5 trillion.
Overall, the economy is worse. Gas prices are higher. Inflation is on the rise. People’s median incomes are lower. We’re less safe. The national finances are much worse. Obama talked about “hope” and “change” in his speech. Here’s hoping we have change this November.
