Let’s see now, in 2001 President Bush II took over from bad ol’ President Clinton. Whoopee, all is good, but how did that work out?
Bush took over with around a 250 billion dollars surplus and left us with a projected 1.2 trillion dollar deficit, in a recession, heading for a depression, losing as many as 700,000 jobs a month, trade deficits of as much as 60 billion dollars a month, was in charge when we had the biggest terrorist attack on American soil while they sat on information about a terrorist plot, and left with us in the middle of two un-winnable wars.
President Obama — I hate to use that word since it sends a lot of people into a tizzy — took over, used some of President Bush’s T.A.P.P. money and saved two companies instead of giving it to the Wall Street boys, millions of jobs have been created, trade deficits are about half of what they were, domestic oil production is up and oil imports are down — I think gas hit $3.85 in SC in 2008 and it’s $3.12 in SC as I write this — and Bin Laden is dead without losing one American life. They also say the Affordable Healthcare Act is working out OK in the states that are implementing it.
As for the Democrats, thank God for the ol’ Socialist programs, Medicare, Social Security, and Medicaid, which might be paying your loved ones’ nursing home bill. That other crowd would like to push us old folks out into the private insurance market and get their hands on our Social Security.
