I just wish his [Obama's] opponents would do at least one of two things: Fact-check and/or criticize the president on legitimate matters.
Some recent criticisms: What has this president done to curtail anyone’s Second Amendment rights? Nothing.
Guantanamo opened under the last president, not this one (criticize him for not closing it)....
Gasoline prices? I remember paying about $4.50 per gallon during the summer of ’08 before Obama was elected.
What this president has actually done:
Ordered the execution of U.S. citizens abroad by drones for alleged crimes; Where’s the due process?
Not withdrawn from Afghanistan, where our troops continue to die, for what?
Prosecuted whistleblowers like no other president before; if we follow the rule of law, the U.S. won’t be embarrassed by the likes of Julian Assange.
Failed to prosecute anyone for the ’08 collapse of Wall Street that negatively impacted everyone reading this.
Fostered an aggressive foreign policy that has yielded more enemies of the U.S. than before he came to office.
If you want this president out, fine. But help your cause by focusing on things that matter, not talk-show fodder. Use at least one other source besides Fox/Rush/Beck, and pressure our representative government to do the people’s will, not the will of some corporate donor pulling the strings.
