Worse than the last 2 years? ... Rising gas prices,
Are you kidding me? Gas was way, WAY more expensive when your guy was in office. It went way, WAY down when the Democrats won in 2008. Now that the Republicans took the House, they're going right back up. If you're going to blame the price of gas on who is in office, look to your own party first.
a health care law that will guarantee less access and rising costs,
Still waiting to see the Republicans prove this. So far, not so much.
moratoriums on drilling without any basis in fact,
*stares in disbelief*
Were you watching the news last year?
a failed 1T stimulus,
14T national debt,
Which your side drove up further, including another $420 billion to China, by insisting on another round of tax breaks for the ultra-rich. (To be fair, I blame Obama for this too.)
Union bailouts, bailouts of a failed US auto industry
Worse than the last 2 years?
Yes. Way, way worse.
And that is nowhere near the "center" that you continue to state you are. Not even close.
Actually it is. The problem is that the conservative media has redefined "center" as "leans heavily toward our side" in an attempt to make the REAL center look like radical socialists. You seem to have bought this, hook line and sinker.
Think in simple terms that life is a race. Democrats want everyone to finish at the exact same point. Republicans want everyone to start at the same point and due to your abilities, luck and other factors, finish where you can.
No, you have it wrong.
The Democrats want what you think the Republicans want. We START with the same opportunities. Thus, Trust-Fund Tommy doesn't get an easy ride to an ivy league education, and all the perks that come with that, because of daddy's money and influence.
Republicans want some people to have a head start, which is why they support eliminating the estate tax, all the while eliminating programs that help poor people catch up. "Hey, why work for success? You were born rich! You're in a better class than those chaff! You get a much, much better opportunity than those beneath you. Or, just wait for daddy to croak and you'll inherit millions!"
As always you confuse Democrat with socialist, and thus you think they want equal wealth distribution across the board, or in your words "finish at the exact same point". Attempts to correct you on this have proven futile, and I doubt you'll learn anything this time around either.
It is posts like this that make me just cringe. ... Another Bush blamer who thinks Obama is the messiah who is going to fix everyone given enough time.
Ah, the typical Republican counter point. "You're just an Obama worshiper!" If I had a nickle for every time a Republican said that to me when they were wrong... well, I might be a Republican.
It is posts that this that make ME cringe.
And as always, Verifex rocks the house down.
