    We will continue to run up massive debt.


    So........ No.



    I wouldn't even think this is really the question. What I wonder more is - what are we going to look like in 15 years?

    Yes but no thanks to Obama, and not for 2 years. Like Clinton, the Republicans will take the House and Senate in 2014 and will step in to save the day for the last 2 years. Of course like Clinton, Obama will try to take all the credit, but we are used to that. At least we will finally have a good economy. If Obama is as smart like Clinton, he too will just get out of the way and let the Republicans put the economy back on track like they did before. I am thinking Obama has too big of an ego for that. We will just have to wait and see.

    First of all, I'd like to let you know I am in no way an Obama supporter. That being said, the fact that the economy, by any reasonable standard, has gotten much better than it was 4 years ago is certainly true. The causes of such recovery and/or improvement, however slight, are debatable. I am also in no way bashing the Bush administration, since the crisis and the various conflicts were in no way directly the Bush administrations fault. They were all caused by various factors, and the recovery was also caused by various factors, not solely because of the policies instituted by the current administrations policies.

    The economy is better from 4 years ago.
    It will continue to get better, albeit somewhat slowly.

    The housing market is in good recovery, stock market is largely up.
    Yes things are getting better.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    It seems unlikely. The debt seems to continue growing regardless... Hopefully people can break this problem before the problem breaks America.

    I know I'm double-posting, but I actually want to amend my above comment to include the reality of the matter.

    The rich didn't leave the country when taxes were slightly higher during the 90s. A return to those rates, which is exactly what is being proposed, is not going to end the world the way the right-wing fear-mongers want you to believe. We've heard a lot from Romney and other Republicans talking about how they want more people to be successful and widen the base of those who are wealthier, essentially, promote wealth. Look, that's great if you look at the world that way, but restricting the tax code and signing pledges to folks like Grover Norquist does none of that, it just makes those who are richer even richer, it widens the gap.

    look mate liberal propaganda isnt going to change my opinions on this. we either pay the rich to stay or they leave. we can't live without them.
