You're complaining about policies that were started by both the Clinton and Bush administration. To say you supported the Iraq war but you're now
complaining about the spending going on in the Obama administration is really laughable.
With the billions of dollars spent on a war that was based upon false pretenses, not to mention the mission being changed (3) time to justify it, and
now you're saying Bush is old news? We're still in two wars he started and Obama is still continuing it! What about the trillions of dollars that
went missing during the Bush administration? Or the money that was politically spent to support Cheney's Halliburton? What about the S&L scandal
that was tied in with the Bush's, or the Enron Scandal? What about the continued deregulation of the banking industry that was started by Clinton
and extended further by the Bush Administration. Which caused the predatory loan practices of the banks which caused the current economic crisis
we're in now.
If your memory doesn't serve you right, Bush pushed for the bail outs of the banks before Obama came into office. Obama just did the dirty work for
him. There's plenty of finger pointing to go around. To blame just Obama for this economic mess is really being highly selective. It's really
laughable when you want to defend Republicans over Democrats because both administrations spent billions of dollars and wasted tax payers dollars.
This country has over spent well before Obama got into office, and he's just doing the same incompetent policies his predecessors did before him.
This country isn't going anywhere if all we do is cover one eye and look the other way.
