David Bashore, do some fact checking! Obama's spending rate is actually quite low compared to all the other presidents.
His is more of a revenue tax collection problem caused by George Bush and his unfunded tax cut for the wealthy in the middle of two unfunded wars.
The lasting effects of Bush's policies on this economy didn't end when his presidency did, even though Republicans would like to think so. By the way: The so-called job creators have had their tax cuts for a lot of years now, so why is unemployment so high? The lowered credit rating was from the Republicans wanting to play political football with the economy. Look how many times their presidents raised it, a fully self-inflicted wound that didn't have to happen.
You don't think a 332-206 electoral college win for Obama is a mandate? The people spoke through the voting booth. It would be nice if Republicans would listen.
