The left always accuses the right of being insensitive, cruel and uncaring. This is a good campaign strategy that has worked for them for several generations, sometime after they succeeded in passing Jim Crow laws and the like and stopped standing in the doorways of colleges to prevent blacks from entering. It was sometime after Truman dropped the atomic bomb on Japanese cities (not that I disagreed with the action, but it was a Democrat). It was after the leftist judges decided that the insane had a right to be free and literally created the homeless problem overnight. It was after the start of the Vietnam War, or simultaneous with the war against blacks.
In this administration alone Medicare has been raided for over 716 billion dollars. Taking medical funds away from seniors in their most vulnerable and needy time would seem to be a no-brainer to wrest the cruelty title from Republicans, but the media ignored it, or spun it as a way to better care for them under Obamacare. So, the elderly's funds for their health coverage was taken to pay for Obamacare which, by Obama's own admission would mean that some of the elderly would not get valuable and scarce treatment, but be offered a pill instead, which would dull the pain during their slow death from terminal cancer or some other affliction.
That's not all. This administration allowed, perhaps even encouraged, the trafficking of guns into the hands of Mexican drug cartels. These weapons were used to kill Brian Terry, the Border Patrol Agent and 16 or 17 teenagers in Mexico. These are proven facts and what implicates Obama directly is that Eric Holder has not been given his papers. So, guns were shipped to Mexico which have come back to America to kill Americans and some stayed in Mexico to kill children. Now, that's caring. It would be sad for the poverty stricken of Mexico to not have weapons by which they might earn millions killing and intimidating others seems to be the logic there.
The welfare system, designed by a Democrat, has done more to encourage the social conditions of the inner cities than anything else. Is it any wonder these children grow up believing that dealing drugs and forming criminal gangs are the only way out of their confined lives? They recognize early that the government dole is limited and creates no opportunity for escape. They know it is a trap and they are in it. So, they turn to either sports or drugs or both to reach for the American dream. The leftists idea of caring is giving and creating dependency. Once the bait is taken it can never be coughed up because the system does not foster a sense of self-worth or ability other than to stand in line and get the meager portions doled out.
Obama cares about the unemployed also. He has extended unemployment benefits until it is almost impossible to get off of unemployment until, say October of an election year when suddenly millions fall off the radar and the unemployment rate drops to 7.8%. Well, the argument for extending unemployment benefits to over a year seems just as valid today as it did then. Oh wait, did I mention the re-election of our caring leader was looking rather dim?
Leftists are about power. They will buy it, coerce it, manipulate facts and figures to keep it. They will promise anything to anyone to get what they want. The trouble with Obama's campaign is he keeps making the same promises he broke the last time around. There's always an excuse, but excuses only work once, or twice. Barack Obama has always been able to lie to anyone and get them to buy the same lie over and over again due to his charm and eloquence when speaking to other leftists. It might be a more difficult task with people who have lives dependent on the fulfillment of these promises, such as cutting the federal deficit in half; easing Middle East tensions; turning the economy around and going through the budget with a scalpel rather than an axe. Millions of lives and treasures relied on those promises, now that they are broken those people know the source of their condition.
