When Barack Obama came into office in January 2009, the most critical issue facing the United States was the economy. What did he place his greatest emphasis on? Getting Obamacare passed.
Barack Obama returns for his second term and will be re-inaugurated on January 20th. The most critical issue still facing the United States is the economy which is still sputtering. We have approximately 8% unemployment and a Dow that still has not regained its high point established in 2007. The issue seeming to get the most attention from the Obama Administration currently is gun control and not the economy.
It seems to me that when it comes to priorities and a choice between what is needed to be done for the country and what is on his ideological agenda, ideology always wins.
His momma would be proud of her son.
