Is it just me, or are we the people witnessing the ugly nature and rise of a president who believes he has the sole mandate to change the United States as we know it today? Since his re-election, his tone, demeanor, body language and continued conflicts with the elected body are becoming more evident and tiresome. It seems every decision, appointment, and continued lecturing; combined with staged campaign rallies to endorse his agenda is going to be the Obama way of doing business.

Two months have passed since the election and the second term has yet to begin and the tone already being set should bother all of the electorate. We cannot afford four more years of continued day-to-day confrontation and feigned arrogance when our country needs true leadership and bipartisan support to correct the economy, reduce unemployment, and make America prosperous again.

Members of the gay, Jewish and military communities should be appalled at the choice of Sen. Chuck Hagel for secretary of defense. President Obama got your money, got your vote, but certainly doesn't have your best interest at heart.

Remember, he has nothing to lose, but you have everything to lose, if he continues down this slippery slope.
