Im just regretful that this thread has come to blows amongst Glockers when it has accomplished nothing.
Buddy, the only thing a president can do is make this country more attractive for industry to come here, creating more jobs and upward pressure of incomes in order to attract the best and brightest. The president doesn't make jobs or give pay increases, if you believe that is how it works, you don't understand the economy. What exactly do you think Obama is gonna do to make this country more competitive? Do you realize Russia's economy has been growing at an unreal rate? Why do you think that is, do you think it has something to do with the 13% FLAT TAX RATE? Why do you think companies are taking jobs overseas? Our taxes are too high, yet Obama is gonna attract jobs to this country by increasing taxes? I'm mystified as to why so many people who vote democrat actually believe that is gonna work. Do you remember the Carter years? If you ever decide to go to college or go back to college, I recommend taking up Accounting, Finance or Economics.
Regarding GWB, he was clearly a big government guy (code word for quasi socialist), but not as bad as president Obama is gonna be, I can garantee you that. GWB's problem is he wanted his cake and to eat it too. He wanted to cut taxes and spend more, but you can't do both. Obama just wants to flat out spend more (his eventual goal is to move us hard toward socialism), and you can't do that and have the country remain a superpower, and being a superpower is key to having a thriving middle class. I want you to tell me exactly what you believe Obama is gonna do for the middle class?
Because I'm stumped on this one.
Btw, if you are a true "Southern Democrat", then you shouldn't even be a democrat anymore, as your party has left you and become the party of the socialist agenda. Blue dogs don't even fit in the democrat party, seriously.
