“Tonight’s Republican debate was a reminder that we’ve been down this road of failed economic policies and proposals before. The economic recession in America wasn’t caused by bad luck; it was caused by bad Republican policies. But the Republican candidates are doubling down on the same flawed policies that led to the loss of 3.6 million jobs in the final months of 2008 and gravely affected middle class families across America.
“And if those policies weren't bad enough, we heard support tonight for policies as extreme as ending Medicare and privatizing Social Security - policies the American people have rejected over and over again.
“The debate tonight put into stark relief the contrast between the Republican presidential candidates and President Obama. Republicans want to roll back the protections President Obama put in place to make sure another financial crisis of the magnitude we saw in 2008 could not happen again. President Obama is making the tough decisions to get our country going in the right direction, has taken our economy from job losses to 15 straight months of job gains, cut taxes 26 times, and focused like a laser on getting the middle class back on its feet while those campaigning to replace him have failed to show they can lead on these issues."
So whose policies have really failed, "Thunderlips?" Housing prices are falling, foreclosures are rising. More people are unemployed than ever before and have given up finding work. The only jobs being created are a few thousand hamburger flipping jobs at McDonalds.
Democrats, including you, "Thunderlips," voted to cut $500 billion from Medicare to fund a risky-scheme called "ObamaCare" that the nation loudly rejected by Democrats shoved down our throats anyway.
For all your so-called concern for seasoned citizens, how come there has been no cost of living increase for socialist-security recipients in the last three years? Because it's not for senior's security, just another program for a bunch of socialists in DC to use to scare them into re-electing you.
You're right, "Thunderlips," there is a stark difference between this field (except maybe Ron Paul) and Richard Milhous Obama. The GOP stands on the side of freedom, the Constitution and the individual, while socialist Democrats like you and the President stand for a bigger, more intrustive government-something our founders never intended.
So if freedom and the Constitution are extreme, then I'll say it loud I'm an extremist and I'm proud!
