Charlie Daniels: Obama Is Leaving America a Much Weaker and More Divided Nation

'It will take decades to repair'

"I will be the first to admit that I have been bitterly disappointed in President Obama's tenure. Some of the disagreements are philosophical in nature: the fact that he believes in a different America than the one I believe in. Obama’s vision is an America with a bigger government, more bureaucratic control and income redistribution, basically European-style socialism, which, in my opinion, is doing damage to the nation that will take decades to repair.

Political differences are nothing new, and I don't think we've had a president in my adult life that I didn't disagree with on one political point or another, or in some cases, many.

The political and fiscal debacles that Obama will leave behind, while formidable, are not insurmountable, if approached with common sense and understanding of the patience and sacrifice it will take to undo the damage that's been done.

His lack of leadership is an entirely different situation. Under Obama's watch, race relations have drastically deteriorated with little or no input from the White House.
