Republicans lie while Obama saves the country

Republicans have taken to lying about everything. When all of the fact checkers agree that the Romney campaign is lying through their collective teeth on virtually every issue – and especially on the “keynote” viewpoints – then you know that the party does not deserve to be elected. Meanwhile, Obama saved the country from the economic disaster the Bush administration left it in.

He did this despite the fact that THE major causes of the debt are the Bush tax cuts, the two Bush wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the near depression economic collapse that occurred during Bush’s second term.

He did this despite the tea party bigots increasing the debt over and over with their dishonest attacks on the President, on the economy, and on the middle class. All so they could give even more tax cuts to the super-rich and more tax loopholes to the megacorporations who ship jobs overseas and hide their income from taxation offshore. Yes, Obama did this despitethe tea party Republicans voting AGAINST every effort to stimulate jobs and help the middle class.

He did this despite the fact that the unemployment rate started skyrocketing during the Bush presidency and shot up to 10% before Obama took office and got the stimulus package money flowing to help the middle class.

Imagine how much better off we would be if the bigoted and dishonest tea party hadn’t been actively working to hold back the recovery out of bitter hatred of the guy in the White House who doesn’t fit their bigoted definition of “the right kind of American.”

The tea party has been actively attacking the middle class in order to give more to the super-rich with every single vote they have cast since Obama took office. And still, with the Republican party admitting it was working against Americans, Obama managed to save the country from depression, save the US auto industry, speak up for the middle class and every other group the bigoted tea party has attacked, and put us on a path forward toward a sustainable economy for ALL Americans, not just the ones born rich.

  1. Too bad more people refuse to see these facts. Trying to compromise with Tea Party Terrorists has been and is futile. It is amazing that some of these “legislators” have not been brought up on charges of treason. Their main goal was to see The United States lose its credit, it’s standing in the world and collapse our economy all to get rid of our Commander in Chief and further add to their own power. They have been and are CONSPIRING against our President and our country in so many ways that in a saner world these actions would have been called out for what they are.

    • The Republican “leadership” admit they met before Obama had even been sworn in that the GOP would stand in the way of everything Obama tried to do to fix the economy that the GOP had crashed. That is simply despicable – to work against your own country like that.
