Blame whoever you want but fact is USA financially failed Fall 2008 when the Great Recession took effect and not since then. The debt Obama and US middle class have taken on was to keep this once great country from going bankrupt. Clinton left America in pretty good shape looking back to 2000, and the 2nd Iraq war starting in 2003 was a huge mistake as US forces uncovered zero WMD's as promised by GW Bush. Also US corporations went overseas hiring in record numbers while receiving tax breaks as Americans lost both their jobs and homes as housing market collapsed by 2007 and 2008.
If Barack Obama had run as Republican in 2008 the other candidate would have easily won in a landslide. It's the GOP that's seriously broken in a 21st century world imo and this is #1 reason why Americans will re-elect Obama.
Wow your stupidity is amazing. The so called Clinton surplus was under a Republican Newt lead Congress and every grade schooler knows Congress controls the purse strings. Just as the massive $5.4 trillion in new debt under Obama with the healtchare welfare bill yet to kick in was under the Pelosi dem Congress. It is pathetically naive to say such stupid things when the facts are so clear that the Obama $5.4 trillion thus far is more than both Bush terms combined. Wow you take the cake for ignorance and that is why we are here suffering the woes of 100 years of primary dem party failed control.
