Pelosi: 'Our country is better off than where we were' four years ago
Source: Daily Kos
Our country is better off.
Our country is better off than where we were. President Obama, this extraordinary president, in a very extraordinary time, pulled our country back from the brink of depression, a meltdown of our financial institutions, a deepening of our deficit. In the first two years, three and a half million jobs were created with the Recovery Act. President Obama was a job creator from day one. One week and one day from his inaugural address we passed the Recovery Act, the auto rescue, just two name a couple.
In one year, in one year under President Obama's leadership, more jobs were created in the private sector than in the eight years of the Bush administration.
So, fundamentally, our country is better off than it would have been if we'd continued down the path that the Republicans had us on. Mitt Romney wants to take us back down that path. The President wants to go forward, they want to go backward. They are advocating exactly the same policy.
...not perfect BUT when was it ever perfect? In Father Knows Best or Leave It To Beaver?
That "perfect" is nothing but a fantasy.
Times come...and times go. The ones we want to go away forever, were run and created by the GOPathetics. And now you
have the Baggers wanting to press the pedal to the metal, over a cliff...any cliff...as long as it brings us down. I seriously
think they have some kind of death wish! Really!
Dems need to hit back HARD at the BaggerThugLicans AND the media on this STUPID, STUPID question.
