My Border Collie Would Be Better at Leading than Obama - The Debt Ceiling and GOP Candidates!

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure.” Senator Barack Obama, March 16, 2006

Our grandkids have ‘entertained’ us for the last couple of weeks, so understandably I have not been able to listen carefully to the news or sit at length to write. But I have had background ‘music’ listening to MSNBC and FOX News. I have also opened some very disturbing emails reminding me how quickly we can lose our focus. Our main thrust should be on defeating Obama this next presidential election. The Liberal MSM which includes MSNBC spends their entire time debasing our GOP candidates and Republican policies. They especially delight in mocking our conservative values. Why should we assist the enemy, the MSM? It seems to me that any one of our GOP candidates, as inept as you may think they are, would be better suited for the presidency than Obama. That even my dog, Black and White, a Border Collie and a trusted loyal friend, could lead us for the following reasons.
Border Collies are highly intelligent, energetic and easy to train. They are basically a ‘herding’ dog caring for sheep but do an excellent job of caring for other dogs or children if they are together from an early age. Another trait of a Border Collie is their distinct drive to please their owner by doing right by them. They are also extremely protective of their owners and territory. They are known for being the leader of the pack and will lead if you don’t. They must have ample room to exercise; they thrive on hard work and enjoy playing. That is why so many Border Collies win in so many dog ‘sport’ competitions worldwide.
Black and White is a loyal friend and would never betray me.
SAY GOOD BYE TO OBAMA!
So now you have it, I believe that my Border Collie would be a better leader than Obama! He would protect us and be loyal to our America. He would have the intelligence to know that he is the servant of the people and would want to please. My Border Collie would know when to lead and would never lead from behind and foremost would be the leader of the pack. His boundless energy would prevail from taking too many ‘vacations’. My Border Collie I suspect would also win in Freebee and other similar competitions.
So there you have it in a nut shell why my Border Collie would be a better leader than Obama! Silly, isn’t this…but shouldn’t we be promoting our candidates like conservatives Michele Bachmann, Rick Santorum, and the other GOP candidates? We should be relentless in showing what a BIG mistake Obama has been for our country.
With the Debt Ceiling deadline looming over us on August 2nd, Obama is using scare tactics by saying that he can not guarantee that Social Security, veterans and disability checks will go out if the Debt Ceiling issue is not resolved. Obama would like to raise the Debt Ceiling to about $2.2 trillion which would make it only to the end of 2012. We must urge our Republican leaders that they must have the courage to stand up to the pressure they are indeed experiencing over the Debt Ceiling. We understand that the Debt Ceiling should not be raised without first stopping the hemorrhaging. And I beg to differ with the president when he said, "The public is not paying close attention to the ins and outs of how a Treasury (bond) auction goes. They shouldn’t, they've got a lot of other things on their plate. We're paid to worry about it."
Some of us are paying close attention as to how critical the Debt Ceiling situation is. And yes, many of us are worried about our own personal finances, but we also understand why we are in this financial crisis. It’s time for a Republican leadership gut check!
MSNBC is focusing on the Debt Ceiling showcasing their Liberal point of view while FOX News is obsessing over the Anthony case. Ask yourself, which situation will have an impact on all Americans? While it may not seem to have been a ‘fair’ outcome, a jury of Casey Anthony’s peers found her not guilty and she can not be tried again for whatever crime she may or may not have committed. If FOX News is going to report on criminal cases I believe they should concentrate on those cases that impact the way Americans would be treated, such as the International Court of Justice case of Humberto Leal Garcia. Has FOX News decided to help Obama get elected by changing their reporting style into something closer to the Jerry Springer show? Straying from the main issues can only help Obama get reelected. There is only one enemy from within…OBAMA and his ‘gang’.
