It depends, if we get another Obama then yes they will be the worst President the US will have ever had and if we keep electing Obama's over and over again then yes they will get progressively worse (hey, I guess that's being progressive for you!).
However if we elect Rand Paul things should get a bit better towards the end of his first term, if we elect him a second time then we should get back on the right track again, it will take another Rand Paul in 2024 to really pull us out of it though.
If we elect Marco Rubio or Paul Ryan or whatever then some things will improve and others will deteriorate, though which ones become which remains to be seen.
I actually can't wait to see who the next president will be! It was so amazing when barack was elected and then TWICE. Its like all kinds of people will be coming out of the woods trying to run for president now. It could be a Hispanic next or even a women. Who knows?
I do... It's been going in that direction for last few decades... After Reagan whom I actually liked, it was one bad president after another and they just get worse and worse... Obama has blinded most of the country and my last paycheck proved it... I'm single and make between 50,000 & 60,000... Now I understand about going after the wealthy and hick up their taxes... that needed to happen, but this idiot is going after the businesses as well. My company just froze all raises because they got hammered with a tax hick that destroyed their cash flow. They are also talking about mandatory time off instead of lay-offs. Lay-offs would bring their stock down and that would just makes things worse... Get ready people, something UGLY is coming to this country... It's a ripple effect that will reach everyone by end of year. Don't be fooled with nice smiles and pleasant appearances. ALL politicians suck, all have hidden agendas and in the end NONE are for the people, they are out for themselves.
As long as Americans choose to remain uninformed and uninvolved. As long as Americans choose to turn a blind eye to what's going on around them. As long as Americans continue to choose feel-good messages over the harsh realities.
Until Americans stop choosing the lesser of two evils. Until Americans stop going well, I don't really like candidate A, but at least he's not candidate B and start going f**k candidates A and B, I'm voting my conscious and going with candidate C (or D or E or etc). We need a serious shift in the thought process of most Americans. Until then, it's hopeless.
We are getting way too tolerant of authoritarianism on both sides. Then there's the whole over-dependence on government for everything. The herd figured out how to vote itself a living out of it's neighbor's pocket. Even as far back as Plato, they knew that was the end for any democratic society.
Pay folks to do nothing and they'll do a lot of it.
It is set up so the anyone who gets elected pres will put the wants of special interests way before the needs of the people. That's the way the elites and the ruling class have set it up. I don't think that exactly means that every succeeding president from here on out is gonna be worse than the one before. But politics is a dirty game and the desires of the special interest always come first, but you have to dupe the people into believing you care about them.
I don't understand why people defend Obama so vehemently.. Do you know why the crash happened? It wasn't because of bush... The government was telling banks they had to give loans to people who couldn't afford them.. Why? Because it was racist if they didn't. It had f***ing socialism writing all over it.
