Greetings my friends!! This was not Obamas doing,he just took office. George Bush's 8 years in office is much to blame,in my opinion.must i remind you of his speech after being elected" The american people have Given me CREDIT, and I entend to use it" !!!! He did that and then some !!!
Actually it was Nixon that took us off the gold standard. Both parties have their hands dirty with this. Republicans had 8 years of a "do nothing" about the coming real estate melt down, deregulation of Wall Street so they could go wild, deficit spending the whole time. Now its the democrats turn to demolish what's left of our economy and they're doing fine job of that. Throw all the bums out and elect Libertarians.
