Let me address all my Democrat friends. Take yourself back to 2007, and imagine you found an old lamp. You rubbed it, and out came a genie, who said, "I am here to grant you three wishes."
You might remember those dark days of 2007.
Our president was a stupid cowboy, George W. Bush. The world hated us.
We were stuck in Iraq, a quagmire, losing more troops every month, while Bush insisted on sending in even more troops -- a surge.
Osama bin Laden was on the loose, probably in Afghanistan, while Bush nation-built, futilely, in Iraq.
Bush held detainees from his so-called War on Terror in Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, instead of giving them a proper day in civilian court.
Bush ran a whopping "triple-digit" deficit of $161 billion.
And Bush's deficit was due to his two wars and his tax cuts, not spending on people's needs.
We continued to be the only developed country without government-run universal health coverage.
Gays were not allowed to serve openly in the U..S military, nor were they allowed to marry each other.
As of June of 2007, the minimum wage had not been increased in almost a decade.
The unemployment rate was getting scary: it rose from 4.4% at the end of 2006 to 5.0% by the end of 2007.
The overall economy as measured by real GDP over that same period was near-stagnating at a paltry 2.2% growth rate (4th quarter of 2006 to 4th quarter of 2007).
It was a virtual hell on earth.
The only bright spot, perhaps, was the recent takeover of Congress by Democrats. The new majority leader of the Senate, Harry Reid, saw the situation clearly.

Oh, the gnawing pain in the pit of my stomach as I long for the good old days.
Unfortunately true; the Democrats want a socialist state animated by the writings of Karl Marx, and they are certainly getting it.
I saw this a while back - it applies here but in a much more malicious way
1. Who cares about Gitmo
2. Unemployment rate vastly wrong. what is the true
Odd how ‘prophetic’ SNL can sometimes be.
Saturday Night Live: Obama - DO NOTHING SKIT
I read somewhere that it's close to 20%. And ridiculously high if you count underemployed. -- Wouldn't be surprised if we see it at 40% or 45% by the end of the year.
It is a real bitch trying to get other people to fund your marxist paradise.
And where’s my puppet-handlers? Where’s Valerie Jarrett? Why are my fingers stuck to my eyes?
We also had a POTUS that did not rely on a Crackberry. Just who is Barry texting/calling on that Crackberry?
How can we ensure that those texts are captured for posterity, similar to letters, now e-mails?
Can any honest person really think it’s better now?
not to mention the Crackberry is SOOOOO 2006.
