With the election looming in our headlights in less then two months, it is incredible to me that so many people still cleave to President Obama as the presumed redeemer who will finally rescue the nation’s flagging economy from doldrums and recreate millions of badly-needed jobs, even when it is painfully clear that his policies have failed to do so in four years of practice.

When he proposes nothing but a continuation of the same approach, citing only insufficient time as an excuse, what is it that his followers see in his methods that lends them any credence? Why is it that so many likely voters cannot see the folly in Obama’s reckless increase in the federal deficit (nearly $6 trillion in four years) with no credible plan to curtail it?

His lame solution is to raise taxes on the “rich” — those who create the lion’s share of American jobs and already pay most of the income taxes. The national debt is now more then $16 trillion — some $52,000 for every man, woman and child in America.

Why can’t the liberals see the precarious path they are following — like the Pied Piper (Obama’s) rats to be swallowed up in the swamp of socialism in the manner of Greece.

Who among us is so blind not to see that the nation’s survival is at stake in this election?

It is high time for a turnaround.
