Say “When”

When his first impulse is to blame others rather than to accept personal responsibility; when he’d rather be on the golf course than at his daily intelligence briefing; when trillion-dollar budget deficits become routine; when he’d rather tax and regulate business than see new jobs created; when he puts “free” birth control over religious freedom; when the only thing he can cut is the military; when “stimulus” spending, higher taxes, and the printing of increasingly worthless dollars represent his economic plan; when he’d rather tear down a straw man than build his case on the merits; when fundraising has become more important than governing; when his greatest foreign-policy “successes” have become smoldering ruins; when he “evolves” on homosexual marriage just in time to pocket the resulting campaign cash; when he rams through ObamaCare even after the voters have told him no; when he does nothing to stop Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons while giving Israel the cold shoulder; when he prefers expensive pie-in-the-sky energy dreams to what we can easily get from the ground; when he doesn’t even know that Egypt is an ally; it has become clear that President Barack Obama is a luxury that America can no longer afford.

It’s time to say “when.”
