Yep going to be a great place where everyone stands in line and takes handouts from the government....
I'm still trying to figure out who is going to pay for all of those handouts???

Like this Nobel prize winner;
The finance industry is to blame for the growing divide between the rich and poor in the United States, says Nobel Prize-winning economics professor Joseph Stiglitz.
Even Obama's allies at the New York Times agree;
The yawning gap between the haves and the have-nots — and the political questions that gap has raised about the plight of the middle class — has given rise to anti-Wall Street sentiment and animated the presidential campaign.
I guess four years of your progressive plan wasn't enough as that article also says;
Income inequality has soared to the highest levels since the Great Depression, and the recession has done little to reverse the trend, with the top 1 percent of earners taking 93 percent of the income gains in the first full year of the recovery.

I believe that once you get a number of more presidents under your life experience and have a wider optical view point you will see much more to this picture then just one president.
We, the people, are responsible for the shape this country is in. It starts with us being a sovereign state base on individual rights. And those rights include keeping guard over ourselfs including crying wolf when our leaders stray away from our founding instructions.
We have not done that as a country for years. We have turned away from incidents and situations where we should have stood and fought. No one challenged Bill Clinton when he lied to the grand jury on tape. Stocks were doing well, we were doing well and unemployment was low so we looked and our elected leaders looked the other way cause no one wanted to look at the whole picture.
Then we had our elected officials sponser a housing program whereby out government instructed, yes..instructed mortgage leaders that they could not check on the purchasers income, credit or job status. And millions of home prices went through the roof cause a ton of unqualified home buyers were out there buying the American dream. Of course that progam made a mockery of the real American dream where previous home buyers had to put down real money, show that they were responsible citizens through steady job employment, a record of paying their bills when due and no indication that they were non responsible citizens.
The "new" America is a place of blame. Blame the other guy or this political party for all of the problems, espcially their own problems.
I have yet to see on home owner come forth and admit that the house they purchased under false documents and lost was their own doings as they knew they could not afford that house.
And where are the citizens that are holding obama's feet to the fire for all of the promises that his voter believed that he promised them. And where are the citizens that are outraged because for 4 years our congress has continued to break the laws under which that have taken a pledge to uphold?
Mos to them, especially the responsible citizens, are too busy standing in an unemployment line somewhere; and the other, the cult that follows faithfully, the obama kingship..well, they are too busy waiting for all of the promises that he has promised them.
They stand at the dock waiting, faithfully, for their boat that obama led them to believe existed, to come in while obama is taking off on Air Force One heading for a vacation on their money in Hawaii."The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers it can bribe the public with the public's own money.

My grand kids would love to hear you suggest that I am a youngster. I guess I am just an old fool - but it could be worse - I could have been a Republican!

So then, the Clinton economic boom was due to Reaganomics according to you? Nothing to do with the dot com bubble?
Very interesting. If that's the case, why is it bad again?"Social networking" is an oxymoron.
