Forget the 2000s

It amazes me that bringing the unemployment down from the 16 percent projection by every economist (without the stimulus) to the present 9 percent is not good enough.

It amazes me that the Tea Party Republicans were happy to vote in GW, Rove and eight years of war and economic ruin, yet think Obama’s two years in office should have cleaned up all of their mess.

It amazes me that the very people who call for a balanced budget are the same people who support borrowing money in our name so they can give it to the rich in the form of a tax cut.

It amazes me that we finally get a rational president and congress, and a large number of people have forgotten just how bad things were under eight years of the Republican regime.

Don’t be fooled by the Fox Network’s Tea Party Republican propaganda. Check your history; everyone able to vote should have lived through the “crazy-eight” years. The facts speak for themselves.
