Give it some freaking time!

I’m so tired of the short-term memory that seems to plague the right-wingers in this country. Remember when the Bush administration was in power? Yeah, it wasn’t all that long ago… just over a month, if I have my dates correct. Well, during the time that George W. was in office we went from having a surplus to being a trillion dollars in debt. We started two wars that still aren’t anywhere near done, and killed countless Iraqi and Afghanistani civilians and thousands of our own soldiers. We allowed the banks and finance institutions to “govern themselves” and inflict their predatory lending practies on American citizens. All of this happened during the EIGHT years of the Bush reign. So, if it took EIGHT years to get us into the shithole that we currently are in, why is it that we all expect that Barack Obama to be able to get us out of it in a month???? The stimulus – or SPENDING bill as the conservatives like to call it – was only passed a few days ago and it’s going to take some TIME for it to do anything. Just because we live in a microwave society doesn’t mean that everything we do takes only 20 seconds to be done. Give it some f-ing time, people. It took years to get to where we are… give President Obama more than a freaking month to start making an improvement.

    If you are going to make public your opinion, at least take the time to be accurate. Under Clinton the country had a surplus in the DEFICIT, not the DEBT. We were still in DEBT. Under Bush our DEFICIT increased and in four years our DEBT increased 1 trillion. Since Obama has taken office (less than 3 months) our DEBT has increased almost 2 trillion.
