This series of graphics illustrates what Americans have thought to be our most important problems, starting with FDR and going to the present:
I would like to point out that Obama ad-Dajjal began with a screwed up economy but left us with a sense of dissatisfaction in our government as our greatest worry.
In other words he fixed nothing, but he gave us distractions so we would not notice how screwed up our economy is - and his minions are STILL blaming it all on George W. Bush.
Face it - W was and is a moron. The mess Obama ad-Dajjal inherited was created by the Goldman Sachs gang and their ilk, and the continuing mess we are in will be influenced by them for the rest of all time.
Obama ad-Dajjal doubled our debt to soothe our economic worries, but in the long run wouldn't it have been better for him to have taken the bull by the horns and dealt with the underlying issues?
Of course it would have, but instead he chose to leave the mess for his successor to deal with. That is the very definition of cowardice.
