Obama has had his chance for change


The present presidential administration seems to have some odd decisions about domestic and foreign affairs. According to news reports, during the attack on U.S. Consulate in Libya, Ambassador Chris Stevens had asked for more security help.

From what I read in the news, there were CIA operatives just a mile away from the U.S. Consulate who could have responded.

Also, from The Examiner, "Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had ordered more security at the U.S. mission in Benghazi before it was attacked where four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens were murdered by al-Qaida but President Obama denied the request."

Evidently according to news reports, the CIA operatives who were just a mile away from the U.S. Consulate were told to stand down.

What in the world is happening in this situation? People are out of work, people have lost their homes, people have stopped looking for work and we have so many people on welfare and unemployment benefits today than ever before. What is going on in our country?

President Barack Obama has had his chance for change. In light of the present situations, I think it is time for someone else to have a chance for their change.

We need to vote for a change in the office of the president and vice president. We have the privilege of voting because of a lot of people who have given their lives to preserve these freedoms for us. These are shocking developments with this present presidential administration. However, whichever way you decide, please vote.
