Sometimes it’s hard to know what to say about President Obama, ever since November 4th, 2008 he has been in charge of the greatest country there has ever been, my beloved United States of America. Prior to becoming POTUS, Obama was a freshman Senator from Illinois, He ran on a message of Hope and Change, and many like myself would make the argument that as the 44th President he has made many of us loose Hope, but he delivered on the Change promise, but those Changes seemed to have not been what most Americans wanted.
But one thing is for certain, President Obama will be remembered as the President of many firsts, not only was he the first black man elected to hold the highest office, he also has a whole list of firsts perhaps many Americans may not be completely aware of, so let me share them with you.
First President to be photographed smoking a joint.
First President to apply for college aid as a foreign student, then deny he was a foreigner.

First President to fire an inspector general of AmeriCorps for catching one of his friends in a corruption case.
First President to appoint 45 czars to replace elected officials in his office.

First President to golf more than 150 separate times in his five years in office.
First President to hide his birth, medical, educational and travel records.
First President to win a Nobel Peace Prize for doing NOTHING to earn it.
First President to go on multiple “global apology tours” and concurrent “insult our friends” tours.
First President to go on over 17 lavish vacations, in addition to date nights and Wednesday evening White House parties for his friends paid for by the taxpayers.
First President to have personal servants (taxpayer funded) for his wife.
First President to keep a dog trainer on retainer for $102,000 a year at taxpayer expense.

First President to side with a foreign nation over one of the American 50 states (Mexico vs Arizona).
First President to tell the military men and women that they should pay for their own private insurance because they “volunteered to go to war and knew the consequences.”
Then he was the First President to tell the members of the military that THEY were UNPATRIOTIC for balking at the last suggestion.
Well there you have it, are you as surprised as I was to learn of some of these “firsts?” Now obviously I’m no fan of Obama’s, but I am a huge fan of America, and of our way of life. It is almost hard for me to comprehend all the crap he has gotten away with while in office, and he isn’t even done yet, I’m sure this list of firsts will continue to grow.
I think it’s fair to say if any other President would have done some of these things they would have been impeached or at least threatened with impeachment. Why do we allow this type of shit to go on without standing up for what’s right and demanding our elected officials follow the Constitution and look out for the best interest of its citizens? I can only pray that by the time he leaves office my beloved country isn’t beyond repair.
God Bless America and All Those Who Defend Her!!
