Use your vote to send Obama back to Chicago

Wake up, America. Get your head out of the sand, open your eyes, and do your homework. Someone has been lying to you, and you need to hold them accountable. 

The two candidates for president of this country have two very different roads laid out, and Old Glory is depending on you and me to get it right. 

We found out at the first debate that the president is human after all; he doesn’t seem to be quite as sharp without his teleprompter. He didn’t appear to have all his facts straight. Maybe the president has spent too much time on the golf course or shooting baskets. 

In the first 6 months after he was elected, the president went overseas and kept apologizing for our country and putting the blame on us for all the problems of the world, which more or less put his policies in motion. We should have seen the light then. 

The president says, “Give me 4 more years, and I will make it right.”

I say, ‘’No. You had your chance, and you blew it.”

On Nov. 6, send President Obama back to Chicago and his friends. After all, they deserve each other.
