The first debate confirmed that President Barack Obama lacks experience demanded by the office he holds. Mitt Romney continually answered his attempted attacks and launched some of his own, which Obama wasn't able to parry. Obama blamed George W. Bush for all his misery and woe, for for 56 consecutive months under Bush, unemployment was less than 5 percent.
Over the past four years, Obama hasn't demonstrated the leadership ability required of a president. When Obamacare was being considered, Obama virtually remained out of the loop, allowing Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi to draft the bill and shepherd it through, only to swoop in to sign and get the photo op. In foreign policy, he bowed and apologized to the Saudi king, the emperor of Japan and others he seemed to admire while snubbing the Israeli prime minister and giving the queen of England the audio of his greatest speeches. He's succeeded in making the Islamic world a tinderbox because his foreign policy seems to have no real purpose.
Americans who are out of work and have gotten no help in job creation, and American taxpayers who will bear the burden of his spending, deserve an apology from Obama.
