Republicans are desperately trying to convince the American people about the effect of a series of crises on our nation, spinning a tale about a world gone out of control. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Yes, events have transpired beyond the President’s control in eastern Ukraine and West Africa, but our nation should feel blessed to have such a sane and cautious leader, one who will take measured decisions for the safety of us all. God knows where would be right now if George W. Bush were still President.
And the most important thing for the American people, the economy, is showing robust signs of growth, with the unemployment rate dipping below six percent for the first time in years. The stock market, despite some recent corrections, has nearly doubled in value, and if companies would relax about the large stockpile of profits they have amassed, we would be doing even better.
If the President were giving a State of the Union address, he could proudly say, “The state of our union is good.” But President Obama seems to get little credit, either on Fox or the so-called liberal media for his accomplishments. Instead of proclaiming the message of success, Democratic candidates are running away from the President.
This strategy creates a self-fulfilling prophecy. The more Democrats avoid the President, the lower his poll numbers become. And the lower his poll numbers become, the more candidates avoid him.
It is time for the Democrats and the Party to show some leadership and shout the accomplishments of our President from the rooftops. There’s a reason why the Republicans aren’t campaigning on Obamacare anymore.
