News piles up against Obama

June 25, 2014 

As I was reading my paper on June 15, a few things really stuck out:

An army of al-Qaida-inspired Sunni militants continues to march through Iraq, taking over city after city as they move toward Baghdad. This army, known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, is executing people as they move forward by the hundreds if not thousands. America has done nothing to help stop this slaughter.

Our Southern borders have been overwhelmed by thousands of illegal immigrants (most of them children from South America) including known gang members from Mexico. President Obama has directed that these illegal future Democratic voters will be taken care of by our border patrol and housed at military bases. They are not to be sent back where they came from.

All of Lois Lerner's e-mails sent to and from the White House have been lost due to a computer failure. Remember she is the fired former head of the IRS up to her neck in that little incident. So far she had to plead the Fifth Amendment to stay out of jail.

I guess what bugged me the most is when I found out that our sorry excuse of a president thought that a golf vacation at Rancho Mirage California was way more important than attempting to run our country. The arrogance and just plain in- your-face disdain for all this great country stands is breathtaking. He should be impeached right now -- not a week from right now, but right now.

How anyone who professes love for America can continue to support him and his failed government is beyond me.
