Barack Obama is a dirty Chicago machine politician. (Yes, I know that statement is repetitive and redundant.) Having spent time in Chicago, I have a real good sense of what that means, and why it should be disqualifying for any politician seeking office outside that city. That's the first reason this Democrat will not be voting for Obama this fall. The second reason is the way Obama has brought Chicago-style machine politics to the national political stage.
And if I were tempted to hold my nose and vote to re-elect him anyway, there's another roadblock to prevent me from doing so President Obama's actual record.
These items are just the tip of the iceberg. There are so many more things to object to. Like fewer people working now than when he took office. Like more people being pushed into poverty, and more people put on food stamps, under his Administration than ever before. Like his decisions on which laws he is willing to have enforced, and which laws he will have his agencies ignore. Like his unilateral rewriting of laws passed by Congress. Like his actions taken in violation of the law, and continued in violation of court orders.
And that's still just the (slightly larger) tip of the iceberg.
