The poor recovery has more to do with political parties trying to score points, and not being interested in solving the nation's problems. Obama has not done enough, on the other hand the GOP has dome very little to come to some compromise which might actually work.


Obama hasn't done enough what? Spending? He's spent $6 trillion dollars (going by the debt added). What did that accomplish?

Sequester should never have happened. At the root though is we lived a life where the GOP insisted that deficits don't matter, and acted like it. You can blame Obama for failed current programs all you like, but we wouldn't be here if Bush had not dragged us into two wars we couldn't afford.

We wouldn't be where? The wars aren't the drivers of most of our debt. Entitlements are. Obama has done nothing to address any of those programs and never will.
