I can't argue this from an Obama supporter's side. I try to understand their side, but I can make neither heads nor tails of it all. I was not a GHW
Bush supporter . Something slimy about him. A kind of sissified tough guy I thought. Didn't sit well with me. Clinton? Yikes. Another slimeball.
Actually quite a toad. GW Bush? At first I gave him a pass. He didn't seem slimy. He was "folksy" and I hoped for the best. Oops. What a sleaze bag
her turned out to be. And now Obama, I saw he was a well spoken and a much loved creep. Yuck. I like to think that Obama means well, but something
just tells me this is not so.
I ask my sisters and mom, what do you think about this stuff Obama is doing and they say in unison, "He's great! He talks good. He's trying and
damn that Bush he spent more money in his 8 years than all previous presidents combined. Somehow it will all work out. He means well. It's not his
fault. He was thrust into this dire situation"
Uh, yeah. I came upon a problem in the 1970's. I bought a car and I couldn't pay for it because I lost my job. Um. No, I didn't borrow more money
to pay off the loan for the car. I willingly gave up the car and got a good deal out of it. I know, this is not the norm these days, but all I had to
do was give up the car and all was forgiven.
There's a saying that when you find yourself digging a hole, you eventually have to stop digging and find your way out of the hole, that doesn't
include digging yourself deeper. It's freaking common sense. Something that is too uncommon these days.
I, too, would love to hear intelligent responses from our present government supporters for all this way out of control spending.
By the way, Germany's leader is now saying she wants to lower taxes. You get growth from more money in people's pockets than in government
