    Washinton has vision problems...really!

    “With an endless parade of distractions, political posturing and phony scandals, Washington has taken its eye off the ball. And I am here to say this needs to stop,” the president said Wednesday in the first major economic address of his second term.

    Yes, it is a poor situation. We have zero leadership to keep Washington on track and focused. Unfortunately the 'scandals' are phony. Did not people die in Benghazi while the 'leaders' in Washington word smithed instead of doing anything to actually prevent it happening? Did not the IRS violate their own policies and discriminate against certain groups for political reasons? Did not the AG approve a gun running operation that went South Does not this administration on a regular basis pick and chose which laws they don't like and ignore the enforcement of said laws? This not the administration of openness and public notice of laws that we were promised. This is not the administration of compromise and progress that we were promised.

    He simply hates it when someone else creates a 'crisis' of which he can take advantage. Prices and interest rates are rising, but he insists there is no inflation and our economy is getting stronger. Our population in increasing (mostly via illegal immigration) yet there are fewer people working than in the last 10 years. The economy is stronger yet we have more people on food stamps and other form of government welfare than any time in our history.

    His health care bill that promised reduced costs and wider choices is providing just the opposite and is finding more and more people each day losing faith and opposing it implementation. The folks that passed it without reading it are finding in near impossible to figure out how to make it work, let alone save money.

    He has to have a set the size of beach balls to go out in public and say the things he is saying. But then again, he is no true leader, simply a campaigner even after he has won.
