So you're unhappy with Bush. However Bush and this country have had some tough years. Clinton did not have 9/11 to deal with and he was in office during a prosperous time. He had the privilege of being president during an "easy" time. And no Clinton and the dems cannot take credit for that prosperity. By the way, he didn't do anything about health care either. The health care problem has been around for a long time, it didn't just happen during Bush's tenure.
SoCo its not as cut & dry as you make it sound between the repubs and dems. However historically the dems do tax more and do hand out more money.
Exactly it's not cut and dry, but look how you rationalize with Clinton anything that was good under his tenure was just because things were 'easy' at that time. I've seen you repubs do that all the time if a repub had been leading during the 'easy' Clinton years you'd attach heaps of credit to them instead of shrugging if off as nothing to do with them.
What is painful for me to watch is during a time when repubs had TOTAL CONTROL for a solid six years we've seen some of the worst hits to our standard of living and to the economy, a war started with deception that wasn't needed in defense of our Country, the housing market collapse, yet you would like to pin it on the Dems and vote a new crew in who will keep the same policies going that got us here in the first place.
Do you realize this war costs billions per week if not day. Do you realize we the American tax payer will pay for that likely our grandkids will still be paying for it. Any money considered to be a handout pales in comparison to that cost. You have lost the position of calling Dems the irresponsible party when it comes to spending. The repub controlled Gov. has spent money like a drunken sailor since 2001 that again we will be paying for for years to come.
But, scare people with tales of their guns being stolen and other nonsense and bring in more of the same.
