What improvements? I suppose you'll argue unemployment is down even though the real story is fewer people are looking for jobs. And when you're not looking for a job you're either looking to the government for money without paying taxes or living off your savings.
Have we created a niche market no other country can compete with? No.
Is our brilliant president leading the world fight for 'clean' energy? Sure, but at a cost towards growth in killing the cheapest energy, coal. Which artificially raises the cost for doing business here.
Maybe you'll say health care is better because of Obamacare. To that I'll say it is good for kids being able to stay under their parent's plans but other than that the cost will eventually reduce availability.
Obama's grand stand for his fiscal cliff fiasco will result in another $4T in debt and does nothing to fix anything.
The increase in payroll taxes is projected to cut our GDP by 1.5-2%.
Am I missing anything? Seriously, tell me how things are improved.
The chickens will eventually come home to roost and Obama better hope the media protects him from replacing Herbert Hoover as the guy that led us into our biggest depression.
