So, its a given that the economy more or less sucks right now, the markets are in the shitter and for the first time in however long, we had 0 jobs created last month. Now, Obama may not be a very effective president -- thats partly because he tries really hard to comprimise on a lot of deals, and we get a bunch of ineffectual, watered-down legislation that just benefits the same people as before, and none of the actual problems regarding our budget get fixed.
However, the Republicans have been hurling shit at Obama since Day 1, not just because he's black and a lotta their base don't like that, but also because their last president was such a catastrophe of epic proportions that they need to do everything they can to make Obama look almost as shitty by comparison (not possible, just going by the economic data). W. is going down as the next Hoover or Harding, and I think the history books will back me up on this one.
So, now we've got a lot of nothing accomplished (though I am glad Obama did reverse the ban on stem cell research -- that makes up for all the bad he's done in my mind), the rich have gotten richer, the poor poorer, and of course the blame obviously falls on Obama, since he's the president. Really, it looks to me like things will get worse before they get better, so he may not get re-elected. We just have to hope the Republicans throw up some 'tard as their nominee, and the general votership of America will be like, nah we're just not that stupid and/or crazy... sorry, guys.
Am I missing anything here? I know my viewpoint is skewed but the story seems to be a simple one that a lotta people don't want to get. I just hope they are still in the minority.
