This is in response to Richard O;Malley’s letter headlined ” Obama didn’t start us on this path” published in Sunday’s Las Vegas Sun on May 13, 2012.
Come on. Enough is enough!
It’s time to stop whining about the past administration and step up to the bar. The failed policies of this administration are what is sinking the ship. Obama has had plenty of time to rectify the problems he inherited,but has only made the problems worse. For most of the Bush economy the activity was outstanding–low unemployment and extreme resiliency in spite of 9/11, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Katrina. The housing bubble was not Bush’s fault. Barney Frank and Chris Dodd ignored the warning signals and missed the policy mark in relaxing the financial standards that allowed millions who could not afford homes to buy them.
Liberal supporters of this current administration need to own up to the failings of a socialist set of policies over the past three plus years for the stubborn refusal of this economy to move ahead. Obama and his administration failed repeatedly to focus on the issues that are vital to recovery, and have instead played an ideologue game for the past three years. Obama spent inordinate time trying to pass his Obamacare health care law that is loaded with costs that will burden this nation forever. His policies on green energy have missed the mark which is the development of a greater yet supply of fossil fuels that are in abundant quantities. There are burdensome environmental regulations that are holding back businesses from expanding and blocking job creation.The voters are sick and fed up with this ridiculous game of blaming the current failings of this administration on Bush and his policies.
