THE PEOPLE SPEAK – Obama deserves time to fix Bushes’ errors

Why is everyone saying Obama isn’t doing his job and he’s not a good president? I’ll tell you why, because it took George Bush Jr. and Sr. more than eight years to run our government into the ground, and every time Obama tries to fix one of their mistakes he’s voted down by Congress. Every time Obama tries to do something good for the low income families, he’s voted down by Congress.

Bush Sr. got us involved in a war when he was in office and because of that 9/11 happened, so we had to go to war again. Obama is trying to bring our soldiers home so that no more families lose their fathers, brothers, mothers, and sisters. This is strictly my opinion, but I think some people are still prejudiced against having a black president and just want a white one back in office!

President and Mrs. Obama are the only ones I have seen that actually interacts with the voters and really seems to care about the people. Kennedy, Clinton, and Obama are the only presidents that so far are for the working class families and they haven’t tried to push religion down our throats. Give Obama another term as president, he can’t fix everything in only four years, when it took eight plus years to mess everything up.
