actaully cashcow i do not remember Obama beating the drum on supporting troops and veterans.
you know what i remember? i remember geroge Bush and the GOP Congrees giving away "tax rebates' to go friggin shopping with.
i remember them cutting taxes while they gave away that money.
i remeber a whole bunch of GOP's in the congress who refused to pass a g-d-m spending budget for two years.
what most don't want to understand or acknowledge is that the spending has been 'locked' in' for decades. this debt we are incurring was not insantly created by or under Obama. it has been building up for decades since ragan and even before. half of all our debt we owe ousrelves from social security. and all that social security money was PAID IN by workers every payday for those decades.(it is not an "entitlement") The problem is that they have to pay it OUT now, and they don't have it.
what's the alternative to Obama?
is Obama a great president? nope, IMO. but he's not as much of a F---UP as the last crew we had running the country.
I know this glass. I was pointing out the irony in it all.
