Problems started long ago, and were passed down to Obama

It’s hard to understand that so-called American patriots are blaming the problems of the last 50 years of growth in this great nation on our President Obama. These problems started a long time ago and were passed on to every president. Running this great nation is not easy, and it costs money.
The hatred can be read and heard in newspapers and on radio stations across America every day.
Some believe Democrats do not belong in this country, and some believe God created the Constitution; and if you are not Christian, you just do not belong here.
Yes, their is trouble in River City; some have created an exaggerated, unfounded problem to create petty, mass hysteria to push their views. How many remember when President Bush and Dick Cheney told everyone to buy duct tape and plastic to cover your windows?
Some in Congress believe failure of our great nation is the only way.

They will gut the education systems across America to the edge of not functioning. I wonder, without an education, will the future know what debt is.

I guess the only hope for some is the dream of a Wells Fargo wagon coming down the street. Good luck with that.
