“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”- george santayana (1863-1952)
“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” ”
When are we going to wake up? It amazes me that so many Americans are not able to “remember the past” of just 4 years ago and are eager to “repeat it.”
We gave GW and his policies 8 years, and 4 years ago (BEFORE Obama became president) we got the results…economic disaster. Our homes are not worth what we owe on them, millions of us are out of work, our savings are either used up or worthless, prices for everything are going up, the debt (for the country and for individuals) is skyrocketing out of control, nobody can afford to send their kids to college, and HALF of the people want to put a man in the white house who promises to bring back the same policies?
Those who’s memory of the past doesn’t even go back 4 years certainly don’t remember that when GW came into office there was a SURPLUS not a deficit in Washington…the results of 8 years under Clinton. GW squandered that surplus and start running the country into debt the first year he was in office but it took 8 years for him to bring down the nation’s economy. So Obama should have fixed it and turn things around in just 3 years? The very idea that ANYONE who has lived through it would even consider going back to those policies is as far beyond comprehension as the idea that there is a pot of gold buried at the end of the rainbow! IF the american people DO send Mitt Romney to the White House and he does repeal the few things Obama has been able to get the tea party Congress to do, be assured, the next collapse (and it WILL be the result) will rival the Great Depression.
