“Imagine” that Obama…

Imagine that Obama was just an innocent poet like John Lennon instead of a politician who was enacting horrible regulations in America.

Imagine that Obama understood Lennon’s lines, “Imagine all the people/ Living lives in peace.”  That he didn’t think that he could achieve peace by using drones, spying through the NSA and having the IRS auditing conservative groups. That he didn’t think that he was being conciliatory when he kept insulting Republicans and refusing to meet with them.

Imagine if Obama were smart enough to see that “Imagine” was just a song, not a progressive prescription for ruining the world with a mass of new rules.

Imagine if he didn’t promise a socialistic fair share to everyone and instead ended up ruining the economy, the military and even lowering the incomes of his own black people. Not to mention women.

Imagine if our pushy President didn’t win re-election by lying that we could keep our doctors and our current plans and he was not impeached.

Imagine that when Obama made his Cairo speech attempting to get closer to the Moslems, he ended up lighting fires in the Middle East and destroying monarchs like Mubarak and Gadhafi who were effective and friendly to the United States in favor of revolutionary, bloodthirsty jihadists and members of the Moslem Brotherhood.

Imagine if a dictatorial leader told us he was going to help us with Affordable Health Care and stopped covering half the cost of new drugs for cancer care.

Imagine if a totalitarian president promised a reduction in our insurance premiums, and in many cases, actually tripled them.

Imagine that Obama spent billions on climate control when he knows nothing about climatology and accomplished nothing except hurting the economy.

Imagine if an ingenuous chief executive promised more healthcare, but instead cut down the number of doctors and cancer centers by designating healthcare as a cheap HMO and reducing the networks.

Imagine if voters didn’t believe that Obama was a financial whiz kid despite the fact that he downgraded our S&P credit rating.

Imagine a narcissist raising the price on drugs while strangling the economy so that the middle class couldn’t afford those drugs.

Imagine that Obama wasn’t so divisive and that there was a remote chance of peace between Republicans and Democrats. Imagine that he could have cajoled one Republican vote for ObamaCare.

Imagine that Obama knew the difference between “lied” and “misspoke.” That he didn’t use words as excuses for moral turpitude.

Imagine so many dreamers didn’t vote for Obama.  Imagine, and pray, that the worst is not yet to come.
