Four more years of gridlock!

Gridlock??? Bush is the one who messed the United States up for Obama to fix.
James Longstreet November 13, 2012 at 11:23 PM
Didn'the Democrats contro; the House and the Senate the last two years of the Bush administration? Correct me i I am wrong. How is Obama going tofix it pray tell? We are now at $16 TRILLION as far as the debt goes and Obama doesn't have a clue as to how to lower it. Neither did Romney when you get down to it. So here we sit waiting for the bottom to fall out at the end of the year! Nancy anf Harry sure don't know what to do! Wasn't it Nancy that said that the health care bill had to be passed and THEN read! And now we have companys cutting back on hours because they don't want to pay the costs of health insurance. And to make mattere worse this president may have the opportunity to appoint 3-4 new judges to the Supreme Court. Gee! I wonder if Mrs. Obama is going to take the kids on another taxpayer paid vacation? So yes there will continue to be gridlock! I can see why there are states that want to leave the Union and I can see why there has been a BIG surge in the purchase of guns and ammo. Times are a changing Meesch...for the worse!

Than when is Barry going to fix-it and stop blaming President Bush?????? Barry wanted the job, so he should do it already. After all, he's the guy who's supposed to have been able to walk on water.

I love how out of one side of the Democratic mouth comes " Bush ruined America and the global economy" then out of the other side ,( which no one can argue) " He is the dumbest person in the world". How could he be to blame for being the mastermind of the decline of a Global economy? Give it up folks.
