How's That Hope-y Change-y Thing Working For You?

by Dick Mac

I keep hearing that President Obama is the worst president ever.

This, after 8 years of George W Bush, a President who drove our government to bankruptcy, collapsed our economy, gave trillions of our tax dollars to his rich friends, watched a city drown, lost Number One and Number Two World Trade Center, watched-over a successful attack on the Pentagon, engaged us in an attack on a sovereign nation while lying to us about it, and pulled our military out of Afghanistan (the most important battleground since Normandy) while our greatest enemy fled through its mountains. I needn't go on. Every cognizant American know these things happened.

The way the former President's supporters (they are more accurately called current-President haters) paint the picture, Barack Obama is responsible for every economic, social, and military problem we face.

They say he's done nothing.

I think he hasn't done enough.

This graphic below was posted on the Americans Against The Tea Party Facebook page:

Is this a comprehensive list? No.

Does this list address any of Obama's failings? No.

Barack Obama inherited a government near collapse, an economy in free-fall, and a scattered military struggling to win battles. He has reversed all of that.

I think he's done a pretty good job, actually.

OK, you hate him, so hate him; but stop pretending he's done nothing and that he is the worst president ever. That was his predecessor!

That Hope and Change thing is working pretty damn well, thank you. I look forward to more of it.
