Now, I have a huge case against Obama, who I believe is running our economy into a ditch. Yes, we are going to see some short-term improvement under Obama, but at what cost? It is that cost that is going to cause this attempt at a recovery to be short-lived.
However, having said that, I'll be damned if I am going to be enough of a douchebag to lie, and in the process, give a free pass to the one who was in office when this all began. Screw the political bullcrap. I love my country too damn much to get caught up in that, so I will just tell it like it is. The recession began under Republican leadership. Democratic leadership is exacerbating the problem. And the foundation on which the Great Recession was built was provided amply by both parties. So spin away to your heart's content. Nobody with more than half a brain is going to pay attention.
