President Obama is a nice, charismatic man. The only problem is our nation is drowning, and Obama never learned how to swim.
In 2009, Obama was plunged into deep economic waters. We trusted he knew how to swim, but our trust was blind, untested and untried.
Now, after four years of treading water, we must ask ourselves, "Can our nation spare the time to give Obama economic swimming lessons, or is it time to hire a proven economic lifeguard?"
The president's slogan for his 2012 campaign is "forward." As far as I know, there is no forward motion in treading water.
Thrashing about isn't working!
