No background

No background

I voted for President Obama in 2008 and again in 2012. What a farce. This man has neither any knowledge of foreign affairs, nor any knowledge about national affairs. I blame Oprah Winfrey completely. She used the people of the United States to buy sheets, buy books, buy everything she said was necessary. Then she got behind Barack Obama, simply because he was from Chicago. What a disaster.
He hasn’t any knowledge of foreign policy, much less any knowledge about the United States of America. He had never had a real job, and his wife has a dubious income of more than $40,000 per month — for what?
This man is the weakest politician American has ever had, and we are sentenced to three more years of this ineptitude. I don’t think anyone in America disputes this.
Did I say politician? After all, we disparaged Dan Quayle (because he couldn’t spell “potato”) and now Obama can’t spell “R-S-P-E-C-T” for Aretha Franklin.)
I understand Obama appeared on a comedy show and was asked how it felt to be the last black president to ever be elected. It makes me think it’s not a comedy (sadly) but a sad testament to a man who is hubris mandated, along with his wife.
This is a man without any education, without any prior real professional background. Were I a background investigation professional, I would have to report this man hasn’t any background to report. He never really worked.
