Please give this a rest! Dems are no better, and you know it. Pretty much the same both parties, all about spending, and they expect the rest of us to tighten our belts. Their no different, except different spending habits. Take a look, Sorry Bush has been gone a wild, and the game plan of blaming him is quite old, stale, worn out, and a con!

He keeps telling us that, as he will, again, at the State of the Union address.
When will the people finally believe him, and rest easy.

Obama is going to fix this God awful mess he inherited, and turn the economy and the country around and in the right direction again.

And for those who are complaining about the increase in national debt - WHERE WAS YOUR VOICE WHILE BUSH WAS IN OFFICE???

Obama inherited a $1.2 Trillion deficit thanks to Bush... and a wrecked economy thanks to Bush...

He will fix it though - and then - maybe then - the extreme right wing will be completely marginalized... Oh, they will still throw their daily temper tantrums - but no-one but them will be listening.
How can you inherited something and make it 10 times worse.

He was handed 800 billion dollars to fix the liberals mess and so far he has failed miserably.

We did voice our opinions on the Bush spending.

Obama is taking it to a new level, for me I think on purpose to break the US financially.

He wont ever fix it, his is not smart enough or he would have already shown signs of it with that 800 billion dollar checkbook we handed him.

Many small businesses did very well under Bush including myself. I made a ton of money under Bush and was able to retire at an early age because of his great economic boom of 02-03-04-05-06.

Then Nancy and Harry took over in 2007 and the US went to hell in a hand basket under liberal control.

Did you know the demwits controlled congress for more then 30 years right?

How did the Reps hand the rich tax cuts when the anti business lefties were in control?

There are NO signs of this economy getting better and there are millions of signs we are going downhill and fast.

TODAY is the worst economy in the US since the depression. On Obamas watch, the dems have had total control for 2 years and were handed 800 billion dollars and have wasted it away on nothing but testing mice for aids.

Eight years of Republican control in congress??? Wasn't the last 4 years under Democrat control? Bush was hardly a Republican, he was a through and through neoconservative... I suppose a neoconservative is closer to a Republican than a Democrat but lets try to be honest, shall we?

The village idiot and his band of conservatives and neocons, inherited a budget surplus. Yes, that's S.U.R.P.L.U.S, for those of you criticizing Obama who don't recognize that word. 8 years they had.

8 years to invest in alternative energy sources to minimize our dependence on oil. 8 years to incorporate lending regulations to keep predatory lenders and their ambiguous, deceptive contracts away from unsuspecting buyers. 8 years to develop a foundation so that jobs could be created for Americans, not boosting the economies of India and Chinia. 8 years to curtail illegal immigration. 8 years to deal with the street gang problem. 8 years to stop this flow of Indians moving into our communities with H-1B visas, where they displace American workers and practice separatist behavior, 8 years to incorporate education reform. 8 years to put mechanisms in place to avoid a housing crisis. They had 8 years to control gas prices. 8 years to revamp health care and the income tax code. So forth and so on. They had 8 years!

What did they do? They squandered nearly a TRILLION dollars fighting an ideological war that we could not win. It was like trying to eliminate the clouds with gunfire. Might as well been declared a "war on clouds." This lack of action on the domestic agenda, this severe neglect, is the reason why the country is in a free fall. Those of you who supported and voted for the village idiot, who supported his reelection and who supported McCain, should be ashamed of yourselves. You were and remain a part of the problem. You have absolutely no say in the direction of this country. Your opinions on what Obama is doing to correct this problem are largely irrelevant because history has shown that your political instincts are unreliable and wrong. If you voted for Bush the second time around, you should be hiding, doing more and talking less. It's laughable to read criticism of Obama by someone who didn't have sense enough to recognize that Bush didn't deserve a second term. The "no taxes" argument didn't work.

Thank God we have a great problem solver at the helm in Barack Obama to tackle these problems. It may take time, but he will resolve them.
It's about time someone opened people eyes as to were this downward spiral began, ty A_Lexus.

It was more than 8 years thou, remember daddy was in office which flaired the beginning of this and Jr. was in office for 8 years!!!! And before that we had Ronald Hollywood Regan!!!!! Big joke!!!!
