All of you in-denial-finger-pointers can sit back and blame Bush for what is going on right now with our economy (and yes he is to blame for a big part of it), but the fact of the matter is that the markets are RESPONDING to policies being set in this moment. The market is an indicator, not a progress report; it marks the future. So yes, the market is in bad shape already from Bush, but it is getting worse from Obama. I am increasingly worried about the ineffectiveness of the stimulus package the more that I learn about it.
Contradictions presented between "Candidate Obama" and "President Obama" are also very discouraging. One very clear example of this is demonstrated in healthcare reform. Candidate Obama claimed that he believed government-controlled healthcare accompanied with tax increases was a bad idea and something he stood firmly against. President Obama apparently didn't get that memo, as he is taking strides towards that EXACT thing which he supposedly stood against.
Once again, I have been trying to remain hopeful, but seeing Obama shove his Democratic agenda down the throats of America is starting to get out of control, and with approval ratings traveling in the same direction as Wall Street and unemployment the only thing that seems to be rising, I can only hope that the rest of America opens their eyes soon.
...thanks, also, President Obama, for appointing one of the most radical pro-abortionists we have in this country to SECRETARY OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES! All this is: a downward spiral.
