Obama is no JFK

President Barack Obama has not been truthful to another Democratic president, John F. Kennedy, who said, “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.”

If Obama is emulating the decisions of President Bill Clinton, he of “I didn’t inhale” and “I did not have sex with that woman,” I am more afraid that our nation is being flushed down the drain by the very leaders we elect to guide us.

Obama wants the wealthy to “share the wealth.” It’s called building a business that hires people who work for wages so they can buy products, hopefully made in America, thus ultimately providing revenue for the states and the federal government.

I have no problem helping those who need help, but I have anger issues about giving handouts to those who demand that we share what my husband has worked hard for.

Obama is rewarding his friends and punishing his enemies.

Thank you.
