"I suspect that most people in Cincinnati would acknowledge that I've tried real hard...
I'm willing to accept -- just for the sake of argument -- that you have "tried real hard. But the end result is that you have failed at the major task that faced you when you became president -- getting the US economy back on an even keel.
The deficit us triple what it was under your predecessor. We long for the debt level under George W. Bush -- a debt level you declared to be unpatriotic. Not one more American has a job today than did when you took office -- despite the fact that there are 7 million or so more Americans today. You sold America a bill of goods with ObamaCare -- and still keep insisting that you didn't raise taxes with the program despite the fact that is manifestly untrue.
Fine, I'll give you an "E" for effort -- but an "F" for results.
And if you don't like the classroom analogy, how about a football one?
In the NFL, every head coach tries real hard -- but at the end of every season (and sometimes sooner) we see coaches fired. Every player tries real hard -- but some of them get cut in training camp, some get cut during the season, and others get cut after the final game is played. Never is it a question of whether or not they are liked or what their race is -- and only rarely is it a question of heart. It comes down to the results they have gotten -- and you have had a loosing season.
In other words, Mr. President, under the most charitable reading of your record, you need to go. Maybe you can find yourself a spot on the roster of the Arena Football League.
