Barrak Obama's vision of hope and comfort during these difficult times is likened to a sadist before their tools of torture assuring their victim it won't hurt. Like the sadist victim, the people of this nation are starting to come around and realize the punishment this man is inflicting on our nation and our economy. I realize this is a harsh comparison, but every time Obama offers comfort, and then says something that drops the stock market 200 points or inflicts some sort of new program that will only cause economic pain, I question his hope. Truman had a plaque on his desk that said the buck stops here. Obama's plaque will read, Abandon all hope all ye who enter here.
