Do you know who always won? The kid who said:

"I will put soda machines in every classroom!"

"Recess for half the day!"

"...and I will put a stop to ALL homework!!!"

It has always stuck to me that every 4 years, these campaigns remind me of student council elections.



the sad part is after billions of dollars in campaigning ads for both romney and obama and countless hours of our lives wasted and people around this country complaining about this that and everything else and we basicly have the same exact government as we did monday morning.

same democratic controlled senate, same republican controlled house and the same old blamer in chief as president.

i can see the next campaign mantra in 2015 when biden is running for president, we inherited this mess and its all GWB's fault 8 years after the fact.

This is the end of my political comments on this forum. I just have to say if you dont think a majority of the problems that obama inherited 4 years ago werent George Dubs fault then you must not be able to see outside of a certain party line. DPLD in no way am I criticizing you personally but GWB was a terrible president and i even voted for him the first go round. Again if you are republican and steadfastly adhere to your parties lines then thats how you see it. But to be honest I dont see how people can say that GWB had no part in this mess we are in. Just my 2 cents and no disrespect meant DPLD.

Statistics show the economy, no matter what, goes down the pooper every several years. Some years are far worse than others. I don't think Bush had anything to do with the worlds economy. Just like the great depression or some of the other "hard times" this country has dealt with. Just the facts of life.


Steve- to get this forum hoppin, make a new thread. "Who voted for who, and why?"

Everything is a factor in the worlds economy including us and our president. Big companies sending jobs overseas, funding wars,etc. Oops, I said the last post of mine was the last Oh well.

That's exactly like what happened here.

the point is the current admin can not except any blame when something does not work.
no one ever said GWB was the best you just assumed that.

at the same token it can be hard to sit here and say that the current state of affairs are not the fault of the current admin as well.
everybody got over the meltdown, the banks got theirs, the unions got theirs and wall street keeps getting theirs.
the insurance co's got theirs but the every day common man is still sitting around waiting for theirs.
it is not a question of which party is right or wrong i frankly do not care and they are all to blame anyways.

yesterday turned out to be the biggest hyped out day and a complete waste of time and untold millions of dollars and further delayed the day to day operations of our government just to wake up today with the same basic do nothing government that we woke up to tuesday morning.

the whole electoral college is a farce and basically renders votes useless.

if you live in a blue state and vote red it gets voided out and means nothing and vise versa.
i live in new jersey and it is such a sure thing for the dems the president don't even come here on the campaign trail and when they tally the votes it is a automatic given, just like vermont.

at this point in time i could care less about GWB because he is not the president no more and has not been for 4 years and after 4 years on the job any person in this country has the right to question obama on it and he is obligated to answer.

i don't care who was president i just don't want a dysfunctional government and we had one before the election and we now have one after.

i take great pleasure in knowing that no one can blame the government no more they can only blame themselves the american people F'ed themselves in the A this time.
