But this economy was downright in the shitter because of Bush and his 8 years of destruction. You can go ahead and call that a "liberal talking point" if you want, but it's just a fact.
Trillion dollar deficits are acceptable to you? 16 trillion dollar debt is acceptable to you?
Again, no it's not acceptable. But if you expected Obama or any president for that matter short of Superman himself to be able to change this in just 4 years then you my friend are living in a fairy tale.
Weak national security is acceptable to you? Looking like bafoons on Libya is acceptable to you?
We found and killed Bin Laden, how is that looking weak? If you orchestrate an attack against this country, we will hunt you down and take you out. The Bush years hurt our alliance with a lot of countries, but Obama has mended those fences and we are stronger for it.
The Libya incident was a catastrophe. I won't make any excuses for the administration for that one. Going to war with a country based on false lies that were used to harbor fear in the public to gain support for such a war was downright terrible as well though.
Raising taxes during a recession is acceptable to you?
On the rich? Hell yeah, thats fine with me. They can afford to pay a little more. Go ahead and use the Republican line of class warfare if you want, but the from the top down way of thinking has proved noneffective, we have to build from the bottom up.
