The president is going into campaign mode. He is traveling around the country with his many Teleprompters loaded with excuses for failing to accomplish much in his first two years as president.

While running for president he had all the answers to all the problems facing the country. Reviewing a short list of some of his promises shows a failure to keep his word about how he would govern and how much he would actually accomplish.

1. Closing Guantanamo, Cuba.

2. Fixing the auto industry.

3. Fixing the banking and mortgage industries.

4. Getting the economy moving.

5 Creating jobs and lowering unemployment.

6. Ending the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and bringing most of the troops home.

7. Universal health care.

The list goes on and on, however Obama’s excuses for not accomplishing his goals are the same at all his stops. He blames President Bush. Even with control of the Congress by Democrats he has been unsuccessful as president to get American back on track.

Hopefully this November voters will clean house of those members of Congress who have not read bills before signing them and refused to listen to the voters they represent.
