So you want your Country back!

So you want your country back!

President George Bush

Evidently, you lost your country when Barack Obama won election, (a process where a majority of Americans decided he was the most fit and overwhelmingly decided with their vote that he should lead the country). That election paved the way for you to loose your country. Apparently, your country was stolen from you and the thief lives in the White House. His name it seems, is Barack Obama.

Restoring a Stolen Country.

Now that you feel your country was stolen, lets restore it back to what it was before Obama won the election. To do this, we’ll have to know what the country was like back on January 20th, 2009.

===> A projected deficit of $10.6 trillion: As per a CBS News report, when Obama took office on Inauguration Day, the Debt stood at $10.626 trillion. The report also stated that the deficit has increased by $1 trillion since Obama took office, but points out that much of this increase was in the pipeline from the previous Bush administration. About this $1 trillion increase, President Obama stated in a Town Hall Meeting in Bristol, VA  in August 2009;

“They basically handed me a bill for $1.3 trillion and said, ‘Here, fix it,’ and now they’re on TV saying, why haven’t you fixed it yet — in the middle of the greatest recession since the Great Depression.”

So to summarize, the country you want back was already in a $10.6 trillion deficit, with another $1.3 trillion schedule to happen in spite of Obama’s policies.

===> Fighting 2 wars with no end in sight: The Bush administration felt that even setting a time table will spell defeat. So they were prepared to stay in Afghanistan and Iraq for ever, regardless of how much lives were lost, or the financial burden this country will carry. Of these two wars, one was started because of the greatest terrorist attack on American soil, where almost 3000 lives were lost and the other war in Iraq simply due to the choice of the Bush Administration. It should also be noted that the cost of these two wars was never budgeted under the Bush administration.

At the time of Obama’s Inauguration, over 4200 servicemen have been killed in Iraq alone, with an estimated amount of over 100000 wounded.

So to summarize this point, the country you want back will spend unlimited lives and money in Iraq and Afghanistan, regardless of how far that country is dragged down the drain. This is the country you want back!

===>A country that lost all respect with the rest of the world: Never before in the history of this country have we lost the respect of the rest of the world to the point where our leader, the leader of the “free world”, was shoed! In a part of the world where seeing the souls of ones shoes was a sign of disrespect, having those shoes thrown at you meant that you’re lower than the scum of the earth. Our leader, the man who represented the rest of America, had two shoes hauled at him, and us!

So to summarize, you were so comfortable with being looked upon as the scum of the earth, that you will want that country back!

===>The Longest Post-World War II recession: Beginning in December 2007 and mainly due to George Bush’s economic policies or lack there of, the United States entered what would turn out to be the longest recession after World War II, causing Bush to add another $700 billion in TARP money to an already out-of-control deficit.

A Republican president, and so disgraced that even other Republicans and conservatives began turning their backs on the President.

So to summarize this point, the country you crave was in the middle of the second longest recession in it’s history, and had a president that even his own party dis-owned.

Going Forward

What’s been described so far is not the country I want. It’s not the country the majority of Americans want. We are a hard working people and proud of our accomplishment. We don’t want to be disrespected in the rest of the world, we want to be looked upon as leaders.

Under the leadership of President Obama, we have regained that standing. President Obama is now looked upon as the most respected leader in the world and representing Americans, we too share that distinction. We have stemmed the tide and due to the immediate actions of the new administration, we are now seeing improvments in the economy. We also have a time-table for the end of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and the administration has taken concrete steps to bring down the deficit.

If you’re still insisting on wanting your country back, then the conservatives effort to dumb down Americans have worked and you’re a perfect example of that.
