Bush Taxes for the rich War we didnt need (I was there) Big debt (inherited a surplus left a deficit)
Obama Health Care for All Equal Pay for Women Bin Laden Saved Auto industry End of war Just to name a few and best of all AS COOL AS THE OTHER SIDE OF THE PILLOW
Health care? That has put us billions more in debt. Bin Laden? Could have swore that SF and Navy SEALS got that guy. Saved the auto industry? Like GM, who still hasn't paid back the money they received from the Government? End of war? We are still fighting in Afghanistan, and still have a lot of troops in Iraq. Not to mention gas prices are damn near 4 dollars a gallon. North Korea just launched a missle in defiance of the U.N. Iran is a bigger threat than ever in the Middle East, and to Isreal.
Y'all get the point...
On health care, I agree.
Bin Laden? If you don't give credit to the pres. for this, then I guess you don't hold Bin Laden responsible for 9/11. Can't have it both ways.
Saved the auto industry? No matter how much you disagree with it, and I really didn't at the time, it did save millions of jobs. Most of the money lent has been payed back.
Ending the wars? It's happening, and Afghanistan will probably end within the next couple of years.
Gas prices are not the presidents problem. Blame speculators and the refineries.
NK does what it wants to do. No way to really stop them besides all out war.
Iran is more of a threat now because of Bush taking out Saddam. When we took him out, we unsettled the balance of power in the region and gave it to Iran on a silver platter. Israel can take care of itself.
Nice to have a level headed responce, thanks.
The wars will end due to our not being able to fund then anymore, not because Obama chooses to end them, that's a fact.
With respect to the auto industry, GM has not paid any money back to the government.
North Korea didn't launch but one missle on Bush's watch, and we placed more Soldier on the border in responce. This is the second on Obamas watch, with the first coming in 2009.
While it is true Isreal can take care of itself, we would without a doubt be involved in any conflict if it occured.
The fact of the matter is, Iran laughs in our face now. You really didn't see them get involved with our operation in Iraq for fear of pissing Bush off and getting the living crap bombed out of their country.
