We need a president, not a father figure

First, Barack Obama talks about guns. He doesn't have or need any, with the army he has to protect him.

Second, pushing for our national sport, football, that he knows nothing about. He has a golf club over one shoulder and a basketball under the other arm. If he would quit flying all over the world on taxpayers' money and stay closer to home, he could produce a boy playing football.

Third, he should pay closer attention to bringing the national debt in check and not spending our country to bankruptcy.

Fourth, don't make or pass any more regulations to impede the country's growth, like oil and coal. We should be building nuclear power plants. Don't stop businesses and entrepreneurs.

Fifth, get our people jobs, not paying $400 a week for 99 weeks, now it's 79 weeks, so there are now 49 million on food stamps. This is shameful disgraceful.

This is what's happening in Washington. The greater the power, the more dangerous the abuse.
