I was wondering when the shift was going to come from blaming Bush to blaming all republicans for our current mess and now I have my answer; today. At least this is the first time I have actually seen it specifically stated that we are in this mess because Obama gave into the Republicans and the Democrats did nothing. I suppose that comment came from a far left liberal - the one's that think Obama is not radical enough. Those people scare me. I know some and I like them politic's aside. In fact I consider one in particular like family, but their politics really scare me.
Lets take a look at the situation.
The Dems have been in control for approx. 4 yrs now. Obama for 2 of those years. Unemployment shot up over 8% once the stimulus was passed - Democrat support/not Republican (at least not entirely) even though the President promised it would not.
Housing Market collapsed - Freddie and Fanny are STILL in business - the housing issue started with a Democratic president...do you recall that it was Clinton who demanded banks loan money to people who would otherwise not qualify (it's all part of that spreading the wealth thing). It crashed and bit us these last two years.
Health Care bill passage: You know, "Obamacare". That bill that they said would help us (false), cut the deficit (false), the one where we get to keep our current insurance (false)and doctors (false), the one that was going to do SO much to cover EVERYONE (false) so much so that they made it mandatory for every American to have it or be fined (True).....Health care enforcement is now part of the IRS and you know how everyone LOVES the IRS! Not only is it required, but the end result will be that everyone is covered but no one can get care! Even my friend(s) in Canada have said that what the US has in place is awful. There is so much wrong with the Obamacare that it would take too much time and space to discuss it all. There is one word that sums it up: Disgusting!
Student loans, cars, banking, ...the government has it's arms around all that now....just what the left liberal dems wanted. Just what the Left Liberal Democratic President wanted.
I see no republicans here. There ARE Republicans who voted for these, but those are not what this writer would describe as Real Republicans. Those are RINO's and we are coming for them in the voting booths in November 2010 and 2012.
Simply put, if the state of the economy is good, if you like where the housing market is, the job market, National Security... then by all means; vote Democrat.....we will send the men in white coats for you because you are indeed crazy.
