W did a lot of things that upset me. But he had a lot of help with the economy. People buying homes at 160% to 200% of value. Banks being forced to loan money to people who had no hope of paying it back. Basically people living way beyond their means and banks either voluntarily or legislatively letting them do it.
If you think the bill for the wars is bad, just think about how the kids today are going to feel about the bill for the bail outs.
We have been truly blessed. The people around here tend to live within their means. When houses in the east and west were approaching 2 times their value, people were buying homes here for 98% of their value. Maybe that is why we are the top place to relocate to. http://top100.relocate-america.com/
And trust me, we still have a lot of problems.
Final thought. You've heard it from me before. If you want jobs to move to America, let's get the FairTax. http://www.fairtax.org/site/PageServer
