Letter: 'Chickens are coming home to roost' for Obama

May 20, 2013 

It appears that the wheels are falling off the leftists' band wagon. Gun control (more correctly people control) has been shot down. Obamacare is heading toward an unparalleled train wreck as more and more people realize what this will do to their taxes, their insurance premiums and their health care options. Climate change, (previously global warming) is being questioned more and more as most realize that this is just normal climate variability in political carbon dioxide clothing.

Applying a little common sense and rational observation has done wonders. Obama fatigue is setting in as more and more people tire of false promises, political correctness, blaming others, and seeing more time spent on campaigning, vacationing and fundraising than on governing.

Using sequestering as an excuse to inconvenience people to score political points has proved to be a bad idea. People know that continuing to borrow trillions of dollars to support the government's socialistic policies is not sustainable and eventually will have a negative effect on them and their children.

We cry out for the truth about Benghazi but stonewalling continues. As Obama's illustrious pastor one said, "The chickens are coming home to roost." And roost they shall in 2014.
