Obama has not delivered on his promises

As the Dow Jones Industrial Average floats near record highs, the people who most needed President Barack Obama’s help are still disenfranchised and floating at the bottom of the economic barrel. 

President Obama promised change. 

Yet six years later, young African-Americans still are poverty-stricken and have some of the highest unemployment rates in the nation. 

With almost two-thirds of Americans unhappy with our chief executive officer, the general thought is that we will be a little bit more selective in choosing our next president — and not elect the person with the best speeches and rhetoric. 

As times seem to get tougher and tougher for so many, and those in the middle class are finding a hard time recovering what they have lost in the financial meltdown, the idea of continuing to believe President Obama’s false promises rubs the general public the wrong way. 

May God continue to shine his blessings upon our great nation and may those in need be provided for.

America still has great things to accomplish. 

We will pick up our feet and do them.
