My real problem is, the last 8 years of the Bush conservatives. The mid west has lost so many jobs under their direction and big oil has been catering to their every need that they have lost focus on the needs of middle America. Without a job you don't buy shells or decoys or travel afar to your favorite hunting places because you cant afford it. I have lost all of my confidence in the GOP party, and it appears that this year, they are also internally loosing confidence among themselves. To me, this is scary stuff, and I have had enough!!! I am a proven independent voter for my entire life, and I have been so disappointed in our leadership for so long that it just sickens me, and it should sicken any middle class American who struggles to meet ends meet every single day. It sickens me to see our leaders with their hands out taking big pay offs from special interest groups in order to get laws passed that benefit's them and screw the little guy. It sickens me that our leadership no longer understands what its like to not have enough money to pay the bills, and to pay as you can, some are forced from their homes because they cant afford their mortgages. I want something different this time and you should too!! Go Barack and Joe!!!!
“…middle class American who struggles to meet ends meet every single day…”
Why is it that they can’t make ends meet? How much over spending are they doing on other stuff? Stuff that they don’t really need. Give me a break. Sell the big boat, take less expensive vacations, don’t buy designer clothes, and get a second job. I don’t know, cut spending. Why do you think all this is the government’s fault?
"... some are forced from their homes because they cant afford their mortgages..."
I would blame that on their own stupidity for taking a out a mortgage they can't afford or a second and third one on the same house. Just because I can get approved for a 400K house does not mean I should go out and buy one. I blame the lending institutions and the individuals themselves. People then start crying that they can no longer pay their bills; so as in typical Liberal fashion, they beg for gov't assistance and gov't forgiveness on their loans. Bush did well by making it harder for these crybabies to claim bankruptcy. People need to start owning up for their own damn mistakes and take some responsibility and worry about themselves.
