IMO....we are where we are because we took chances. When the Japanese bombed pearl harbor.....what would have happened if we would have just said ohh well.....We would probably be speaking japanese right now. What if we would have sit on our ass when hitler was killing the jews......what if we would have just gave up during the cold war. what if we would have just said what ever cuba......point your missles at Florida.......we dont give a shit..Im pretty sure the military is what has made this country successful to now, if you dont think so.....I want to know why. And Clinton did a lot of good, but he also helped start the mess we are in right now. He passed the bill to free up credit to fanny may and freddy mac......the credit companies that hit rock bottom....by freeing up credit and making it more available.....you boom now......but you bust later.....aka now. Bush screwed up by not doing anything about it.....even though there were huge signs all around him. I didnt post this to slam clinton.....just to figure out why Obama is putting all the clinton administration in as his....when he said a month ago he didnt want to do that. He said that he wanted to put in new faces and bring in new ideas. He didnt think that we should be stuck with the same people over and over again. Im just trying to figure that out.
