~ Why Obama

If you are wondering why President Obama’s “fixes” for solving healthcare, unemployment, the housing foreclosure crisis and now the debt ceiling “crisis’ have only managed to continue the downward spiral for the American people?

~ Earth To President Obama, Adding Speed To Our Death Spiral Isn’t Helpful
