I would like to thank all of my Republican friends (yes I have a few!) for their prayers over the past months.
They prayed for God to guide the American people to vote for a presidential candidate who would lead America forward.
So, my Republican friends, your prayers have been answered – President Obama will be the leader to bring America out of the "desert" that the Cheney administration dragged this nation into some eight years ago, both literally and figuratively. Literally by taking the U.S. into Iraq on their trail littered with their lies of WMDs. Cheney almost completely took the nation's eye off Bin Laden, by down-sizing our efforts in Afghanistan and placing our national treasures of money and lives in Iraq.
For the first time in our nation's history, we entered a war without increasing taxes – a war placed on a credit card; a war where one company, Halliburton, "won" enormous contracts via the no-bid process – no competition. Oh, by the way, Cheney was the former CEO of Halliburton; so all of his buddies got very wealthy while our sons and daughters died.
The figurative desert is one filled with the sands of virtually no enforcement of banking regulations or Wall Street regulations, leaving the foxes to guard the hen houses of America. This resulted in the collapse of the housing market and an unemployment rate not seen since the Great Depression. So, thankfully, God heard your prayers and helped President Obama continue his work to lead us out of this Republican desert.
