after destroying the economy during Bush’s administration, and then strangling all attempts at recovery in the cradle, the Republicans, predictably, are pointing to the economy as a reason to give them a chance. However, as President Obama famously quipped in 2010,
After they drove the car into the ditch, made it as difficult as possible for us to pull it back, now they want the keys back. “No! You can’t drive. We don’t want to have to go back into the ditch. We just got the car out.
With the midterms looming near, nothing has change since 2010 with regard to how the Republicans want to run America’s economy. They want the keys, but they steadfastly refuse to drive the car.
To the contrary, they have done all in their power to back the car back into the ditch in order to discredit Obama, first to make him a one-term president, then to derail his second term and ruin any chances for a Democratic successor.
