Rakker: President Obama is a skilled con artist because it was essentially the same speech eight years ago when he began his quest for the presidency. Though I voted for him once it was clear he was not only not a leader but unable to accomplish anything for the nation, maybe for poor people with children who did not qualify for medicaid, but he has consistently failed the entire nation. Platitudes and essentially hot air he convinces millions yet there is failure everywhere: the economy, foreign affairs, terrorism and finally he stoked falsely the notion the country is biased and directly or indirectly implied the police are racist. He inflamed too many people because of his loose talk, yet our corrupt media ignores every failure and misstep. Democracy in part is in decline because we have a biased media.
