Barack Obama continues to cede America’s position as the sole remaining super power in the world while his standings in the polls continue to decline. The latest Rasmussen daily tracking poll indicates that the popularity of the President has slipped to the lowest point since he was inaugurated. He now has a 52% approval rating versus 48% who do not approve of the President’s performance.

Obama has continued his diminution of America’s role in the world even to the point of down playing the contribution of America in ending the cold war. In Obama’s Eurotopian vision of the world no single nation should assume a mantle of power greater than any other nation. There is no place for a super power like the America we have known since the second world war.

The President has expressed the Obama Doctrine in speeches he has delivered throughout Europe, Latin America and the Middle East and most recently this week in Russia. As we struggle with a weakening economy amid cries for additional stimulus spending, the President is focused on a “reset”  of America’s interface with the rest of the world.

Obama is the first American President to place his priorities as a citizen of the world ahead of his role as a citizen of America. Barack Obama has proven that not only is he a socialist but he is also a revisionist through his interpretation and subsequent communication of the lesser role America has played during the last half century in promoting freedom and democratic values and principles.

His embrace of  the Global Warming agenda put forth by environmental and progressive fascists is symptomatic of a President who would risk further damage to our economy to bolster his standing with the weaker European nations whose approval he has continually courted. This President who came to office on a wave of charisma and a sense by many that he would govern from the center has chosen to be true to his extreme liberal roots.

He views America as a flawed and greedy nation that must begin to temper its national desire to be more and begin to accept less. His America is the America of great Global sacrifice. Just as he chooses to punish individuals who are successful through higher taxes and tighter regulatory controls of business he has elected to lead America down a Eurotopian path toward larger government and a diminished role for the private sector economy.

The Obama Doctrine is about providing less for America and more for the world.It is about lessening our competitiveness, weakening our defense and compromising our spirit. It is about an America with few beginnings and many endings.

Barak Obama, beginning to lose ground in the polls is seeking a boost in the polls from his forthcoming visit to Moscow . The President is currently promoting transformational legislation on numerous fronts including health care, global warming, and renewable energy. He is also directing unprecedented government intervention in the auto, finance and banking industries at the same time as he attempts to rewrite history as it relates to the American Recovery Act or as it is affectionately noted by the press, Obama’s stimulus plan.

Today at a Town Hall meeting to promote his health care reform legislation Obama again thanked the House for passing a cap and trade bill that promises to be the largest tax increase in history should the 1200 page bill be passed by the Senate and signed into law by the President. Obama also took advantage of the occasion to announce that his stimulus plan has been a success.

The President makes this announcement at a time when unemployment is hovering at 10% and consumer confidence is again receding. Ceo4aday has written extensively on the American Recovery Act and the fact that Obama’s stimulus plan was really an entitlement program designed to stimulate increased union labor on government funded projects.

The $787 Billion dollar American Recovery Act has done little to aid an economic recovery that is hindered by high unemployment and a tight credit market. The reality of Obama’s stimulus plan is that despite his constant self promotion he did not provide America with a stimulus plan. He has saddled America with an historical deficit that promises to bankrupt the nation.

The President’s trip to Moscow is designed to distract Americans from the economic strife we are currently engaged in and focus our interest on Barack Obama’s attempt to rid the world of nuclear armaments. No doubt he will engage in an apology for America’s role during the cold war and more importantly for forcing Russia in the guise of the former Soviet Union into the cold war.

This President has made numerous gaffes as he has represented America on his trips abroad. It is fitting that the American President who is least interested in protecting the Independence of America will be again be presenting himself to the world stage only two days after the nation celebrates the fourth of July in a nation that established the benchmark  for totalitarianism in the twentieth century. A country that continues to explore its own unique form of capitalism while Obama promotes a progressive toward Socialism for the United States.

The House passed the American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009 by a narrow margin on Friday as the attention of both the nation and the world was turning from the abuse of the Iranian regime to the death of the King of Pop Michael Jackson. The bill which is a cornerstone of the Obama progressive agenda required the votes of 8 Republicans to vote in favor of the bill as 44 Democrats voted against it with a final tally of 219 to 212 for HR 2454.

This legislation should it become law will impose e clean energy tax upon the American Public that will amount to the single highest tax increase ever impose upon American tax payers. Given the narrow margin of passage in the House it is increasingly doubtful though that this bill will pass the Senate despite the urgent pleadings of Barack Obama.

The bill, which proposes its will on every aspect of American life and will create a bureaucratic nightmare, will also cost this nation millions of jobs more then the mythical Green  jobs it purports to create. Nancy Pelosi called it transformational legislation while doing Obama’s bidding and she is indeed correct. It is transformational in that it moves America further away from a free enterprise based economy toward the central planning models of the totalitarian economic models that failed in the twentieth century.

Americans may fight back against the tide of environmental and progressive fascism by contacting their representatives in the Senate and urging them to vote no on this bill when it comes before the Senate this fall. The nation may have been distracted when the House voted but we must wake up and act before this legislation is allowed to further cripple our economy.

The American Clean Energy And Security Act Of 2009 is currently being debated in the House and will be coming to a vote on the floor as early as this coming Friday. Ceo4aday has written extensively about the green movement and the progressive fascists within the environmental  movement that are intent upon imposing their will upon a nation that can ill afford the luxury of Global Warming.

At a time when unemployment in America is nearing 10% the Waxman-Markey sponsored bill proposes to create a new bureaucracy that will effect the most restrictive policies on American consumers and businesses ever conceived. These proposals which will affect nearly every aspect of American life from the cars we drive to the homes we elect to live in to the light we choose to read by.

Our Supreme Leader Barack Obama is intent on completing the transformation of America from a capitalist based economy in which a free enterprise system exists to allow all individuals to participate in their own entrepreneurial endeavor should they so choose to a progressive socialist system modeled as a Eurotopian dream in which the central government will determine who participates in wealth creation and dream attainment.

The global warming legislation which is contained within the American Clean Energy And Security Act Of 2009 as the Safe Climate Act, is legislation designed to pander to the far left. Numerous administration agencies will be created to execute the legislation to safeguard the progressive agenda and restrict the freedoms of individuals.

We are a strong proponent of environmental stwardship however, environmentalism run amok as evidenced by this bill will lead to further economic hardship for millions of Americans by impairing the ability of American based companies to compete across the Globe, leading to increased unemployment and higher costs for all consumers.

Now is the time to reach out to your elected representatives in Congress and remind them that sound environmental stewardship should not and does not need to lead to a lower quality of life amid a further burdened economy.

Barack Obama waited and watched as leaders from around the world condemned the  actions of the governing body in Iran at the mistreatment of protesters on the streets of Tehran. Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei who has been the Supreme Leader of Iran since 1989 had announced earlier in the week that protesters would be dealt with harshly. Our own Supreme Leader Barack Obama or as he is becoming  known, King Obama the Tepid, has been reluctant to comment or support a Democratic movement in Iran.

Obama appears to have embraced the legacy of former President Jimmy Carter who sat by idly during the Iranian Revolution in 1979 which resulted in the formation of the current Islamist Republic which over the past 30 years has funded Islamist terrorism through out the world.

This morning, Barack Obama issued an announcement from the White House calling “on the Iranian Government to stop all violent and unjust actions against its own people.” These comments  from the White House are the strongest to date and are long over due. There is no doubt that events in Iran are fluid. However, it remains the moral imperative of this nation to promote Democracy where ever a people around the Globe seek it.

Barack Obama is a new kind of President. He clearly shuns diplomatic confrontation and favors an America that turns away from promoting democratic values and principles. In the end Obama seeks to satisfy a progressive base that is focused on expanding our government and promoting socialist and progressive ideals at the expense of America’s former leading role in the world.

Barack Obama, the great apologist continues to demonstrate a lack of understanding of the most basic tenets of our free enterprise system. As a puppet for the progressive left he continues to spew a socialist rhetoric which undermines our free enterprise system and weakens America in a competitive world filled with nation’s yearning to fill the void Obama is creating with his desire to lessen the role of America’s influence on the world stage.

His inability to formulate and deliver a strong message of support to the Iranian people as they wrestle with the most basic of democratic principles is an embarrassment to America. His predecessors in the Oval office must be completely dismayed by the naivete of Barack Obama. The President who campaigned on a platform of engagement through diplomacy seemed to be at a loss when it came to finding a voice to comment on the events taking place in Iran.

Barack Obama is ceding America’s leadership in the world at a time when nations are scrambling economically, politically and militarily to replace it. Obama, consumed by a domestic agenda formulated by the progressive fascists which dominate his administration seeks to transform America to a progressive ideal that eliminates individual choice and promotes federal decisions for the masses which are deemed too ignorant by the progressives to make their own decisions with respect to diet, health, housing and transportation.

Obama is failing in foreign policy as North Korea raises the stakes. As Venezuela, Bolivia, and Cuba in our own hemisphere raise the stakes. We have previously stated that Barack Obama is a one term President. Today as we write this, we are in Breckenridge, Colorado where surrounded by the majesty of the snow capped  Rockies, we are concerned about the future of our nation. As we see the majesty and the beauty of this great nation, we can not be but moved, to want with great desire, to preserve our American culture.

If you are concerned as we are about the preservation of our most basic values and principles then contact your representatives in Congress and  the White House. America does not have the luxury of a silent majority in the current environment. The Obama administration is intent upon destroying the American dream and replacing it with a federally approved life program. We can not as a nation allow this to happen. We should raise the bar for America, not lower it. Raise your voices and sing the clarion call for free enterprise and entrepreneurship in America. Stand up speak out and be heard. Now is the time.

Senator Harry Reid of  Nevada has altered his opinion regarding the transfer of detainees currently housed at the Guantanamo Bay prison facility built by the Bush administration following the 9/11 attacks. A week ago the Senate Majority Leader agreed with his Senate cohorts that the detainees should not be brought to and detained on American soil.

Reid’s apparent flip flop on the subject of Gitmo detainees came coincidentally as  President Barack Obama was attending a fund raiser extravaganza for the unpopular Reid at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas. The event featured entertainment by Bette Midler and Sheryl Crow and for a mere $29,500. guests were provide the opportunity to shake the hand of the celebrity President.

In a speech filled with praise for his “good friend” Reid,  the President stated his case for keeping the Majority Leader in the Senate.  Reid will face a tough election in2010 in a state where he is increasingly unpopular and is viewed as being out of touch with the concerns of many of his constituents.

Nevada has suffered a significant economic downturn as both the housing crisis and global recession have wreaked havoc on Las Vegas and the surrounding communities. Senator Reid has rubber stamped the Obama agenda in his role as Majority Leader and failed to promote the benefits of Las Vegas as a business conference and convention center following remarks by Obama that were detrimental to the Vegas economy.

Reid’s flip flop on Gitmo shows that a supporting vote can be bought by the President for a mere $2 million which is the amount raised by the Reid campaign on Tuesday evening. Nevadans will be watching the actions of the Senator closely through the remaining of the year and into the 2010 election to see if the man from Searchlight, Nevada remains relevant to the majority of Nevadans.

The race for Reid’s seat should be hotly contested. Given current polls, I suspect that we will see President Obama in Nevada campaigning for the willowy Reid as the Senate campaign heats up. At this point Reid is unopposed as a Republican has yet to declare for the seat. They will announce soon and may come in droves as the real possibility exists that Reid can be defeated, much as another former Democrat Senate Majority Leader, Tom Daschle was defeated in a bid for reelection.

Reid will complete his fourth term in the Senate in 2010 and after serving 24 years it is time Nevadans had a new voice in Washington. Reid will have served Nevadans for over 40 years having served in both state and national office. Barack Obama campaigned under the banner of change and Nevadans should take that to heart in next years Senate campaign.

It is time for a change in Nevada and time to send the gentleman from Searchlight home.
