A note to President Barack Obama, when RINO Senator from Maine Olympia Snowe Gives Obama an ‘F’, you have a real problem … Snowe said that if she had to grade the President on his willingness to work with Republicans, he would “be close to failing on that point.” Close Olympia? No, I think it is safe to say that he is failing. With a continued failing economy, poor job growth, record number of people on food stamps, unemployment above 8%, gas prices at near record highs and a record federal debt, it is safe to say Obama has been a failure.
If there were ever a Republican for President Obama to work with, it was Maine Senator Olympia Snowe. She was one of just three Republicans in the entire Congress to vote for his economic stimulus plan in 2009 and even tried to work with him on health care, but in an interview with ABC’s Senior Political Correspondent Jonathan Karl, Snowe makes a remarkable revelation: She hasn’t had a face-to-face meeting with President Obama in nearly two years.
Snowe said that if she had to grade the President on his willingness to work with Republicans, he would “be close to failing on that point.” In fact, Snowe, who was first elected to Congress in 1978, claims that her meetings with President Obama have been less frequent than with any other President.
Snowe stated that there is no leadership and it is no longer about policy, it is only about politics and reelection in Washington, DC these days. Olympia Snowe earlier this year announced that she will not be seeking reelection in 2012.
Although I have to take exception with Snowe’s that she believes that she is a traditional Republican … “I represent what I think is a traditional Republican… a limited government, fiscal responsibility, strong national defense, individual freedom and liberty.” How could a Republican who believes in these ideals embrace or even discuss any of Obama’s big government, globalism and loss of liberty positions?
