Time for Obama to depart


Barack Obama has blamed George Bush, Republican candidates, Fox News, Congress, tea party, stand-up comics, members of his own party and a good chance his dog for our subzero economy and his pitiful performance as our president. He’s also used that overdue-for-retirement John Kerry to shadow his blame game.

We had a president named Harry Truman who made two statements about being commander in chief of our great nation: “If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen,” and “The buck stops here.”

Harry meant the buck stops at his desk in the Oval Office, and if you can’t take the heat, resign!

Understated, but we are in trouble big time on many fronts in our wonderful country, and it’s time for Barack and his cronies to exit D.C. A dysfunctional government led by a leader who cannot perform or take responsibility must be terminated.

When the train pulls out of the D.C. station, I hope that many elected folks are on board whom now hold our country hostage from making a deserved recovery.
