We the people want the president to be honest & dedicated to upholding the Oath of Office (seriously).

The President is the Commander in Chief of the most powerful military force in the world, the CEO of the largest civilian employer in the country, the voice of the USA to the rest of the world, and a role model for the country’s youth.  Is integrity too much to ask?

The executive powers are assigned in Article II of the Constitution.  While those powers are extensive, they do not include the authority to pass, amend or repeal laws (Supreme Court rulings, not my opinion).  That authority is reserved for Congress.

We must keep term limits for the office of president.  A president for life could achieve almost dictatorial power, or at least use the time to overload the government with like-minded individuals through the president’s appointment authority.

What do I think of President Obama?  I respect him as a person and as our president, but I’m disappointed in the continuous stream of lies and misinformation from his administration, his far left agenda, his divisiveness, and his failure to hold subordinates responsible for their actions.  He’s a good speaker and if he was more moderate he probably could have settled some of our differences and really moved the nation forward.
