Funny thing is, they were in charge for the better part of the last decade and what changed? Did we end Welfare or Medicaid?
Did we sent a lot of jobs overseas and created a bunch more homeless? Yup.
Did we create an environment where the well educated and well connected could take advantage of the system? Yup.
Did we start a bunch of wars that that little girl is going to have to pay for that did nothing but rile up a bunch more religious loons. Yup.
Nothing in life is clear cut as your talking head handlers would like you to believe.
Republicans have not gotten us back toward constitutional principals of gov't either, in 2010 there was a move toward that by electing tea party conservatives, if we can fill the house and senate with those principles we'll have a chance... getting Obama out is a no-brainer if we are EVER going to move in that direction.. I worry that Romney is too republican and not enough tea party, but Obama, he's light years in the wrong direction.
Your points above are ridiculous:
War: there is merit in trying to make fanatic muslim contries more democratic, but we should know by now they are too fanatic/crazy for such change, your fearless leader is letting how many more soldiers get killed waiting for his pullout date to arrive??
The well-educated and well-connected sure did take advantage of the system, he's President.
Overseas jobs are often good business, if you think companies are simply going to raise the price of goods and services to the point they can't compete and go out of business you aren't very bright... keeping more jobs in America isn't always possible, you may want to pay 10 times more for what you buy but most of us can't afford that.
