I've been living in Washington state again now for almost two years and I have to say that the economy here seems to be quite strong, at least in the
greater Seattle area. What's interesting is that Washington has a clear delineation between the predominately republican part (eastern Washington)
and the mostly democratic western half of the state, and the economy and employment seem to be noticeably better over in the blue part of the state,
though it doesn't seem to be terrible in the red half either.
I hear so many people on the internet claiming that Obama's and democrats' policies are destroying America, yet my state seems to be doing quite
well overall, with one of the least effected and fastest recovering economies, while maintaining a beautiful environment and high quality of life for
people. I think people should stop believing everything they hear (and read), especially when it comes to the never ending yet seldom documented
criticisms of the President.
