Like Obama? I don't like him, but I don't dislike him. It's simply a disagreement over the principles and policies he puts forth and those of his party (though plenty I disagree with when it comes to Republicans).<quoted text>
I get it. You donít like Obama and I canít change that. But why have such an edge?
Thereís a lot of corruption in the government, but I am not aware that Obama is directly responsible for any of it. Itís bigger than Obama.
I appreciate the way Obama has done his job and have no reason to believe Romney would do it as well. I have no problem believing that you probably disagree completely.
The point is that the president, whomever it might be, needs to be reasonably moderate and be prepared to apply a balance of Keynesian, Austrian School and other principles as necessary to manage the economy as time passes. He/She also needs to have a Congress willing to negotiate a balance of bipartisan principles to govern responsibly.
The "edge" as you call it is do to the needless pain, suffering and wasted sacrifice of the American people that comes from the government curtailing our freedoms for a false sense of security, the "nanny state" ideology that they know what's better for us than we do. The "edge" is that the policies put for by Obama and the Democrats are not going to succeed in effectively changing (and often make it worse) the issues that we're facing as a country. They never have.
Moderation is not the key to solving these problems. There is not always a middle ground, one side must prevail and one side must fall. There's no way we can continue on the path we're on. Paul Ryan's budget would be a start, yet we got tv ads of Ryan throwing grandma in a wheelchair off a cliff. Ya, bipartisanship and moderation. These past few years, even when Republicans had control of Congress and the Presidency under Bush, "bipartisanship" always meant Republicans caving into Democrats.
Would you mind pointing to one thing, just one thing that Obama has done that you feel is an example of the "good" things of his Presidency? Any of that going to do with economics?
