The election will take place six months from today. I don't know about you, but personally speaking, we are in much better shape than we were when Bush left office.
I am so glad that McCain didn't win the election. President Obama proved that he can lead our country. I wish that he would have taken a harder stance against the Republicans on many fronts, but he did what he could to keep his promises.
We are doing better financially. Our 401K is at an all time high, giving us hope for a happy retirement some day and the hope of leaving something for our children when we are gone. My husbands job is secure and the company that he works for is bringing back benefits that they haven't offered since the Bush years. We are able to pay our bills, even though we lost thousands by opening a small business during Bush's second term. It will take years to pay back the money that we borrowed, but I'm not going to take the easy way out and declare bankruptcy on my business. That's not the way I was brought up. I didn't have those parents that Romney talks about. You know, the ones that can fork over tens of thousands of dollars at the drop of a hat. I am not going to take advantage of the system like Donald Trump and make others pay for my losses.
I will never forget one of the things that Obama said during one of his speeches. He said that Americans always pull themselves up by the bootstraps, but they first have to have bootstraps to PULL UP!
The answer to my poll.....YES! Our family IS much better off than they were when Bush left office.
Please vote in the poll and tell us why you are (or are not) doing better than you were during the last years of the Bush administration. Thank you!
