Will Obama solve the deficit problem . . . that Bush created by giving away the surplus in tax give-aways?

Will Obama solve the foreign policy issues . . . that Bush-Cheney created by starting two wars and crowing about spreading Democracy to the Middle-East? >>

As usual, SalaryGuru thinks the United States, and George Bush in particular, are the font of the problems of the world.

No - that's probably not it.

What it is, is the incredibly powerful blinders republicans seem to wear when "their guy" is president.

Republicans preach fiscal responsibility, but they sure don't practice it. Bush was on of the worst debt mongers there has ever been. It takes a lot to try and recover from that disaster, especially when the sole mission of the republican party for the past four yeas has been to ensure that Obama was not re-elected, not governing the country. Sure, the democrats may be tax-and-spend, but the republicans are borrow-and-spend. I prefer tax and spend.

As far as foreign policy, who was responsible for ruining the triple A credit rating of the US? Tea-party. Who started the war in Iraq on made up data, Neo-cons, with the gutless and complicit help of the democrats. Of course, Romney calling Russia our number one enemy demonstrates a distinct lack of foreign policy acumen. All Ryan ever did was automatically support George Bush no matter what. Who knows what he really thought?

It would be nice if the republican party could actually do what they say instead of just making some random crap up that sounds good.
