No I'm not better off. I lost my house, I had to move, I work for half of what I used to make. Obama didn't cause this. Greed and corruption
caused this. If I recall correctly our economy went to # before the election. I am an independent, not republican, not democrat. Our whole system
is broken and politics damn well won't fix it.
Bingo! We have a winner!
My personal situation hit the crapper in the late summer and fall of 2007. I work in construction engineering but when NO ONE ANYWHERE is
building...kinda hard to keep the work flowing. This trainwreck was enormous. If anyone thought it could be put back on the tracks and off to
prosperity land in 4 years...you are a moron. I knew then that it had went so far downhill that it would take at least a decade if not more to fix
Those that have a brain capable of remembering anything beyond last night's "America's got talent" might recall the "experts" said it would take
at least a decade to recover fully...and you thought Obama had a magic wand or something?
I really don't see any point of hashing this out, anyone with the capacity for critical thinking, reason and rational thought knew this was
really-really bad and would take years to fix.
Am I better than 4 years ago? Yes.
Do I agree with Obama on much of what he has done? No. I disagree with extending the Patriot Act, I disagree with HR347, I disagree with NDAA and I
disagree with telling me that I HAVE to buy a product from a private industry...it's MY money...I will spend it like I want thank you very much!
Romney will be no better...but by all means...do whatever is necessary to fool yourself that his "magic" underwear will miraculously accelerate time
and we will be back in the lap of luxury in the blink of an eye...
