Shame on you, America

To the editor:

Fool me once, shame on you – fool me twice, shame on me!

In 2008, a fresh new face appeared on the scene with great ideas and dreams for this country, and so we elected Barack Obama. He fooled us. Shame on you, Obama!

Fast-forward to 2012 – Obama runs for re-election against Romney. His only explanation for his failed policies? “I need four more years!”

When Romney offered a plan for job growth and reducing the deficit, Obama said it won’t work. He didn’t tell us why or offer a better solution; just “it won’t work.” And so, in spite of a $16 trillion debt, rampant unemployment and a Behghazi incident and cover-up, we re-elected Obama for four more years. He fooled us again!

Shame on you, America. Shame on you. You deserve what you get.
