Obama: “I Will Be Held Accountable”

On Feb. 1, 2009, newly elected President Obama told Matt Lauer of the Today Show that:

“Look, I’m at the start of my administration. One nice thing about the situation I find myself in is that I will be held accountable.”

Obama went on to say:

“If I don’t have this done in three years, then there’s going to be a one-term proposition.”


But true to form, he is now doing a tap dance around his previous statements by stating:

“When I said ‘change we can believe in’ I didn’t say ‘change we can believe in tomorrow.’ Not change we can believe in next week. We knew this was going to take time because we’ve got this big, messy, tough democracy and that’s a great thing about America is that there are all these contentious ideas that are out there and we’ve got to make our case.”

So what has the President accomplished in three years?

Instead of improving the economy as he promised, he is solely responsible for the largest increase in federal spending and the largest increase in the national debt than any other president in history.

One also has to wonder about the motive of our President when he states that it’s a great thing to have all these contentious ideas out there about the big, messy, tough democracy we have in America. That is one of the basic socialist and communist philosophies in sowing discontent in a nation to create the right atmosphere for an overthrow of the existing governmental process.

Obama’s three years are up and the American people need to hold him to his word that this will be a one-term proposition; aka a one term presidency.
