Sid, I'm not particularly fond of our "Barry" but he certainly does not deserve all the blame on the economic front. His political agenda (hidden as well as observable) is something altogether different. George W. certainly did not pull back the reins on spending. And our wonderful congress actually creates all the spending in the first place. I actually cringe more when I hear Reid and Pelosi speak than when Barry sets himself up in front of his teleprompters.
Change is definitely coming. How nervewracking that change will be, nobody knows for sure. I'm hoping for the best.
