As a "conservative" (in the literal tense), the previous administration spent 8 years taking our country from the highest surplus in the country;s history to the largest deficit in history. Increasing spending and reducing income IS NOT CONSERVATIVE. Obama may not have done everything perfect, if fact there us a lot that i wish he would have done but in genreal he has prevented this ressession from becoming a depression in only 3 years the eccomony is already coming back. I have to admit that I was wrong in the 2008 election, the president has been (for the most part) fiscally conservative, he has reduced spending, closing tax loopholes and breaks for the supper wealthy (people with multiple servants and privet jets..). While the GOP does not consider me a "job creator", the president has supported the SBA in the recovery plan which has allowed me to grow my business and provide 10 new jobs in the area (this is more jobs then big business is creating with there tax breaks).
I am sure we can all agree nobody is perfect, my opinion of the president has slowly changed since he came into office, looking at the facts our president has handled the recession well enough for us to beclimbing out of it, keep in mind it took many years to dig this hole, it takes time to get out. could it have been handeld better? were there mistakes? yes and yes but it could have been much worse!
