Think back. Set aside for a minute the things that have disappointed us since the President took office in January, 2009. Think back to the situation the country was in at the time. We were in a war in Iraq and a war in Afghanistan. We still don’t know why we were in a war in Iraq, by the way. We were losing upwards towards a million jobs a month. The banks appeared to be insolvent. Millions of homes were being foreclosed on. This was a national emergency.
What do Americans do when there is a national emergency? We are supposed to pull together and work together and help each other. We are supposed to rally behind out leaders, and support them, and help them succeed. We did this after 9/11, for example.
Did the Republican Party adopt a comprehensive strategy to oppose everything the new President did? If this is true it is likely that Americans might want to apply some accountability for this. All of us should be asking every Republican running for re-election because the corporate media just will not, “What did you do to help the President of the United States fix the economy and the country after he took office?”
