What we have in the presidency is a hugely selfish man disassociated from reality who has lied to such a degree few trust him. I realize he will never be impeached. The country does not want to go through such a trauma with all its attendant adverse reactions on race relations.
The problem is we have three years left to be led by a dishonest man. This is horrible situation for all of us on so many levels.
Barack Obama should resign for the good of the country. And for his own good. It is the only way to salvage his reputation. The limited fixes, such as the one he attempted on Thursday, are a waste of time and only dig a deeper ditch. They also have the unintended consequence of making people more fed up with government than they already are. Even I, as someone attracted to libertarianism, cannot take pleasure in that. Limited government should emerge from analyzing the pro and cons of political systems, not from the personal weakness of a liar.
Finally, I realize this isn’t the first time I have called for Obama’s resignation. I did it before over another egregious lie. How many bridges make a bridge too far?
