My Obama-bubble popped! (by Bill O'Naire)

Another four years of hell?

I'll be honest, as a young, optimistic American, I was very excited by the change brought forth by the powerful Obama Campaign. However, the charismatic speaker who preached about innovation and change proved to be nothing but a load of ear candy and a false hope for desperate Americans. The president loves to "share wealth" with other, more poor countries. This would be great, the only problem is we do not have any wealth to share. As his presidency continues, he is single handedly decimating the middle class, which makes up most of the American society. To those who agree with my view on the president, my question is, who would be the best candidate for the upcoming election and what would they have to do to save our dying country?

  1. Uh... I don't know if you've been listening to the news since Obama arrived in office, but the Republicans haven't allowed for more than a handful of things to pass. At all. And actually, they didn't allow the things that did pass to pass. The democrats almost had to force them through. Remember when Republicans had over 100 filibusters each year in 2008 and 2009? No? Probably because the media wasn't talking about it. You can't sit there and blame the president for the inactivity in Congress when there's nothing he can do about it. He actually proposed a lot of really good bills, and so did the democrats, but they weren't even allowed to be debated on the floor because EVERYTHING was filibustered.

    The destruction of the middle class is coming from an unregulated capitalist domination, the dismantling of workers rights, lower taxes for the rich, higher taxes for the poor and middle class, and of course, spending all our money on war and not on actual economically and socially stimulating programs. Everything Republicans push for, actually. Not Obama's doing. Don't forget the economy has been failing for long before Obama ever got in office.

    The only real option we have is to take the radical, social conservatives out of office so we can actually get something done. An unregulated market is asking for a third world America. Supply side economics and a free market are the biggest scam ever sold to this country. The rich are getting richer and we're getting poorer. That's the facts and that's all that's happened since Reagan. It doesn't work.
