Despite the stock markets rising to heights we haven't seen in years, for those of us on Main Street and certainly on Martin Luther King streets of this country, the recession is real. Neighborhoods are still abandoned because of foreclosures, foreclosures because jobs have dried up or have moved overseas. Even though people blame Bush things were NOT this bad when he was in office and so therefore Bush is not to be blamed for everything that is happening because if it was all Bush's fault it would have been this bad when he was in office not after he was out!!
A fire starts with a spark, then gradually spreads. President Bush lit the match that destroyed this country, leaving President Obama with a hose filled with holes. Of course the recession is real; the middle class is deteriorating as we speak. However, foreclosures are not of President Obama's fault. The banks of this country were giving out hefty loans to people who could not afford them. President Obama has taken measures to insure the people of America aren't being lied to by greedy companies, such as establishing the Credit Card Bill of Rights, which prevents credit card companies from imposing arbitrary rate increases on customers. Although the economy has slightly improved, it's still not good. College students are finding it difficult to find jobs after they graduate, but now don't have to worry about not being able to find health insurance right away, thanks to President Obama's Health Care Reform Bill that allows children to remain covered by their parents' insurance until the age of 26. President Obama, in his four short years thus far, has proved he is an able president and, for the best interest of this country, should be re-elected.
