Change? What Change?

When Barack Obama was running for President in 2008, his campaign slogan was CHANGE!  And CHANGE was indeed what this country needed.  CHANGE from the eight years of corruption and evil of the Bush-Cheney regime.

But what have we gotten in the 2 1/2 years since Obama took office?  Pandering to the Hispanic voting bloc by refusing to crack down on illegal aliens.  Pandering to Muslim extremists by telling Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu to give back territory that rightfully belongs to Israel.  Pandering to BIG OIL by letting them drill in the Arctic and the Gulf of Mexico—this after British Petroleum (BP) created the worst oil spill in history.  And now, pandering to corporate polluters by relaxing smog standards, thus endangering public health and safety, under the guise of “getting the economy going”.

We didn’t get CHANGE.  All we got was an unscrupulous President who has shown he will do anything to get re-elected.  If nothing else, Obama has proven he is indeed the “Panderer-in Chief”!  Shame. Mr. Obama.  You may have fooled us in 2008, but you won’t get my vote in 2012.

And neither will any of the Republican charlatans running for President—Perry, Palin, Bachmann, et al—get my vote.  The middle class, the independent voter, has NO representation in government today.  Change?  What change?  It’s still business-as-usual, no matter which corrupt political party is in office.
