I’m going to be the first to admit that I haven’t been very pleased with George Bush’s tenure in office. As I’ve said before, I don’t think he ever found his Veto pen. But overall, the economy under Bush was well run, consumer confidence high, and things were going well with rising employment and wages.
So what’s wrong now and why shouldn’t we blame Bush for all that’s bad with the economy? Simple, it’s Congress.
During President Bush’s first 6 1/2 years in office he had a largely Republican Congress, but there were problems with the War on Terror in Iraq that was enough cause for some people to vote for change. They didn’t consider all the variables. They were the worst kind of voters, one issue voters that are neither informed on all the issues, or care about all the issues.
The Democratics in Congress held the people back, introduced partisan bickering, stymied good legislation, and unabashedly spent and spent and spent.
Bush could have topped this, but he didn’t. Let’s get this straight, Bush went along with the Democrats on many, too many spending issues and look where we are now. So much for change.
And now we have people who are going to vote for Obama that aren’t informed ( If you don’t believe me, listen to this ), maybe not even alive or legal ( ACORN ), all in the name of change. It’s a dangerous road these uneducated people are ending this country on.
Raising taxes on employers in this economy is assinine and reckless. All for change.
Unilaterally attacking free trade agreements that work and are beneficial to America’s economy, our wallets, and our way of life is foolhardy.
For Obama to tell Canada we’re going to re-examine our trade agreement on oil with them, just pissed them off. They said they’d simply sell their oil to China. Even an Obama supporter should be able to ee the harm in that.
