    I don't really care to re-hash this since most of these "metrics" have been debated ad nauseum, but are they really trying to blame him for the price of gas?

    I'm pretty sure that no politician ever would hold up to the standards they set for themselves during a campaign.

    But somehow this is different, if they keep googling Obama bad there is a blog out there somewhere that will show how "bad" he is..

    Either that or Matty will do the heavy lifting for them..

    It was produced by Herr Goebbels..

    I thought I posted this earlier but I must have hit the wrong tab. The Broken Promises of George W. Bush

    Either way I was agreeing with STFarmy that we can never hold our politicians to a 100% success rate when it comes to campaign promises after they are elected.

    I criticized Bush for his spending and many of his policies all the time. You weren't here so you don't know. I supported him on the WOT and the Tax cuts that was about it. The rest along with the spending by the pub congress was a mess.

    The problem is that the dems are worse like the Ebola virus is worse than the flu.


    Bush is gone and is irrelevant now Obama and holder are in office now.

    The president changes and the CEO's in the House and Senate stay the same - the problems stay the same - the correlation remains fairly constant - that pattern is the problem.

    The left sure as heck did. But now that one of their own is in the White House, well the price of gas is something that no one can really control. :bricks:

    this.....I said before the previous presidential election that it won't make a dfiference who is president.....with the issues at that time, things were clear and the options were few.....

    now, what fricking difference does it make? the country was actually recovering under obama until europe started drasgging things down.....

    the real bottom line is that the US needs to make the kinds of changes nobody has the stomach to make......solvency is by far the most important problem, but the people in position to fix it do not have the will nor the brains to do so, and I point at the entire political spectrum when I say this.
