Watch those words

A president makes many quotes that define their character, quotes that will live forever. A leader is defined by what they say and what they do:

“Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.” John Kennedy

“We don’t have a trillion-dollar debt because we haven’t taxed enough; we have a trillion-dollar debt because we spend too much.” Ronald Reagan

“If America shows weakness and uncertainty, the world will drift toward tragedy.” George W. Bush

“In the new economy, information, education and motivation are everything.” Bill Clinton

Quotes from President Barack Obama:

“If you’ve got a business – you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”

“I do think that at a certain point, you’ve made enough money.”

“The good thing about being president, I can do whatever I want.”

“I will end the war in Iraq, and I did.”

Six years ago, America was blinded with lies, fairy tales and fell in love with a narcissistic hypocrite. After several scandals, destruction of the middle class and countless failed investments of hard-earned taxpayer money, Americans need to face the facts of the man they put in office.
