The mess he Inherited, the mess he left
You hear Democrats talk repeatedly about the mess Obama inherited. But you never hear them talk about the enormously greater mess he will leave for the next president: (1) trillions of dollars more in debt, (2) far greater levels of poverty, (3) significantly higher levels of unemployment, (4) massively larger numbers of folks on food stamps and welfare, (4) higher gas and food prices, (5) a constrictive environment for investment, (6) more porous borders, (7) a war on marriage and traditional morality, and (8) a diminished military facing even greater budgetary diminishment in an ever-more dangerous world, including a nuclear Iran.
Long as it is, this list is incomplete.
