There are so many scandals and misguided policies attached to the Obama administration that it’s difficult to select the most egregious.
Of those that come to mind — using and ultimately losing billions of tax payer dollars to fund so-called green industries, IRS harrasment of conservative and tea party groups seeking tax free status prior to the 2012 elections, weakening requirements for food stamps and social security disability resulting in huge increases in both programs, the most egregious, in my opinion, is leaving our Ambassador, assigned by Mr. Obama to Bengazi, Libya, and his staff unprotected during the attack by that country’s religious radicals.
The ambassador and 3 other Americans were killed and our leaders stood by and did nothing.
The message to our allies and more importantly to the American people and its military is that we can’t be trusted to honor our committments. My plea is that the electorate keeps these issues in mind in next years election.
