Dear Editor,

The leadership and direction of President Barack Hussein Obama’s administration is in doubt and should be of serious concern to every resident of this nation.

Obama’s term in office has been anything but a great moment in the leadership and management of our nation’s government. He has scorned our allies and extended a hand of friendship to our enemies who have no other desire than to kill us. The U.S. is in desperate need of a competent and dynamic leader … someone with people skills, management background, no ax to grind and no ego problem.

People are not as dumb as some politicians may think they are. You don’t have to have an MBA to see beyond the smoke and mirrors of the political game and rhetoric.

Because of Obama’s descent from reality into absurdity, he has forfeited his reputation for seriousness. Approval of the Justice Department’s expenditure of $16 for a muffin and $8 for a cup of coffee at recent meetings is a case in point. It complements the $535 million of taxpayer stimulus money loaned to the Solyndra Solar Panel Company in 2009, which in turn filed bankruptcy the first week of September. Released emails indicate that Obama and Vice President Joe Biden were involved in fast tracking the loan.

Our nation has serious problems. The unemployment rate is approaching 10 percent. If you include the number of people who have given up on their attempt to find a job, the figure is closer to 18 or 20 percent. Because of ridiculous new Environmental Protection Agency regulations, many businesses and farms are no longer able to make a profit. The foreclosure of single-family homes is higher than ever as is the poverty rate. And then there’s Obama-care, a disaster waiting to happen.

Obama, it’s time for you to go. After three years, he still has no plan for the future economic viability of the United States beyond his socialistic agenda. His understanding of and approach to economic growth and job creation is seriously flawed and isn’t working. From day one, his administration has been a miserable failure. He should resign before leaving us with nothing worth salvaging. The only bad thing about that move is that Joe Biden would succeed him!
