So let me ask you something. When you are in a hole, and you want to get out, do you just keep digging downward, hoping to somehow go up? How is going deeper into debt fixing our country, when our national debt is one of our greatest problems?Have you ever slid down a hill? Once you start sliding it's hard to stop, even when someone steps in to help you. They are going to go down hill with you for a ways. Shrub and the Republicans started two wars, actually one as we went to Afghanistan looking for binLaden after 911. Iraq well that is another thing. The Shrubs personal vendetta against Hussein. Clinton left a record budget surpluss which Shrub turned into a then record deficite. Face this fact NRH the Shrub and the Republicans had eight years to screw up the economy and everything else, now after less than four years you expect Obama to stop the slide and completely repare the entire Nation and its economy: Not a reasonable expectation! Example I take amirror and break it into pieces, that takes only a couple of seconds, do you think you can fix that mirror in less time than I took to break it? Of course you can't; not a reasonable expectation. But typical of the Republican mentality, I must do that which they can not.
I dont know about you, but Im not rich. I cant afford everything I want. And when I am spending more than I make, eventually, I have to make an adjustment. Either I make more money or I spend less. I just cant keep piling on more debt. Eventually, I will have to pay for it. Why do democrats think our country is any different. That somehow our 16 TRILLION dollar debt doesnt matter, and adding 4 TRILLION more in Obama's plan for the next 4 years isnt a big deal?
If you want to be insulting, then I can be to. If wanting to be fiscally responsible (paying down the debt, reducing taxes and spending less, is "typical of Republican mentality", then wild spending, increasing taxes, class warfare, promoting victim mentality and buying votes with welfare is "typical Democrat mentality". Our children will be lucky if the US isnt bankrupt and owned by our creditors. Heck, we might see it in our lifetimes if Obama keeps spending 1 trillion a year in debt.
And two more things. As far as Debt spending goes, Bush did a horrible job. I disagree with him on that 100%. But how long are you going to keep blaming him for all our problems? Sooner or later, Obama has to do something other than blaming everyone else for his failings.
And another thing. Clinton had a surplus, true, but only because he had a Republican controlled congress who cut welfare and overall govt spending, plus a booming economy (with lower taxes) which provided higher tax revenue. Clinton fought welfare reform, but was smart enough to take credit for it when it worked.
