Obama didn't cause this economy. His presidency inherited the crappy bad banking/investment/mortgaging schemes used by banks subprime borrowing and over-valuing of bundled sub-prime mortgages. This is what caused the major fallout that ricocheted around the world and many financial institutions to become insolvent, stocks plummeted, businesses closed and on and on the cascade went.
The economy is starting to recover, but the crap that started it needs time to be cleaned up, moved out, and overcome.
CNN Republican analyst: "Now it's time for all of us to remember what this is all about. And that's about leading our country to a better place. So now I think it's incumbent for Republicans to be as gracious as they were passionate about this election."
I love this quote. It applies to all sides.
And now I can go celebrate and relax, because I've been on the verge of panic all day. WOO!
