Give Republicans a chance to fix Obama’s mistakes

For four years under Barack Obama, the Democrats dragged this country down into debt and a war against its citizens. For the last four years they have done nothing but block attempts at recovery and take credit for the few plans (like the auto industry save) that worked – not.

By the way, just what is the “auto industry” that was saved? Do we consider Ford, Honda, Toyota, Subaru, Mazda, Hyundai & others as part of the auto industry? They must not be, because they weren't saved. So I assume we’re talking about GM and Chrysler. Of course, Obama had to force these two into bankruptcy to save them.

Sure, stick it to the rich. The fact that many 401k plans suffered, well, that’s just collateral damage. But GM is coming back. They still owe money to the Treasury, but they are going to invest $10 billion offshore. Why not? They already outsource one-third of their workforce outside the United States. So what’s a few more breaks to foreign labor at the expense of the middle class?

It's time for the Democrats to go away. Then maybe this country can finally move forward. And because the Democrats can’t get their act together, it's time to get rid of them now before they do more damage.
