You’d think the American people would remember who their president was 3.5 years ago, it seems they don’t. The policies of any given president take time to pass in congress and once implemented are usually directed towards 5-10 years in the future. The fact that there is a recovery in our economy at all is a miracle considering the horrendous display of the clunk policies implemented by George Bush. He and his administration thrust our country into TWO unfunded and illegal wars and plunged our economy into the greatest economic crisis in generations. Yet somehow by simply not inviting George Bush, Dick Cheney, Colin Powell, Donald Rumsfeld or Sarah Palin to the Republican National Convention, Americans have simply forgotten how horrible and unproductive conservative policies are in the White House. Mitt Romney not only acknowledges these policies but vows to increase their prevalence. Blaming somehow, the fact that we “only” have had 23 months of private sector job growth and “only” created 96,000 jobs last month on Barack Obama. Folks we were losing 750,000 jobs a month when Barack took office…please do the math and tell me we want another republican in the White House…
