How do you explain the addition of private sector jobs while government jobs have been bleeding off?Obama should have focused in the private sector not the public sector and we would be creating jobs today just like Reagan created.
My mistake, I thought the name Conservative was just for your political party. No I was not alive during the Reagan years, I get most of my information from literature, and documentaries, I actually watched a documentary on Reagan that aired on HBO the other day and thats where I got the information about him pinching the middle class as well as increasing the National Debt. I also read a wonderful book called the Reagan years, which talked about his record, and yes he was a great president in many ways, but he has been over hyped for what he did in the financial sector according to many of the books I've read.
As for Govt, you ignored my comments about the mess that Bush left us in. Was Obama supposed to ignore that mess and jump straight to the private sector? If that happened you would probably be bashing him for not handling those issues first before jumping on the private sector. The same solutions you suggested is what got us in most of the mess we're in now.
Going back to Reagan and his years, the Budget for America was not as large as it is now, so that plays a part in the growth of the national debt. Obama is far from a Horrible president. Just like Reagan is far from a horrible president. I dont think Obama is perfect but you're talking about a president who came into office with an economic situation that can only be compared to the one Roosevelt had, oh and two wars, and a failing educational system. lets wait until he's out of office for a couple of years before we judge him as a president.
I like this site so far. I'm happy to have someone who is not only passionate about his side but well versed on it as well. I look forward to debating with you in the future
