In 2008, after 4 years of Conservative media and their minions joining their Liberal counterpart in bashing all things Bush and Republican, the American voter was left with two parties...BOTH sides blamed Bush and ignored the nearly painless recovery from dot com and 9/11 recessions, near zero unemployment, taking down 2 brutal regimes, ending the rape rooms and female apartheid in Iraq. They were given a choice, a party that would give them the first Black president that was Black AND White and full of ideas and passion...or a party that didn't understand the "cooperation" is the key ingredient in the first name of this nation "UNITED". A party that didn't know that there can be no "principles" without "loyalty".

In 2008, a mostly unknown Barack Obama ran for president on an inclusive agenda of "hope and change." That upbeat message was supposed to translate into millions of green jobs, fiscal sobriety, universal health care, a resetting of Bush foreign policy, and racial unity.

Four years later, none of those promises will be themes of his 2012 re-election campaign. Gas has more than doubled in price. Billions of dollars have been wasted in insider and subsidized wind and solar projects that have produced little green energy.

Unemployment rates above 8 percent appear the new norm, when 5 percent in the past...
