In 2008 the US entered a Great Recession, while Bush was still president. Some moms on this list blame Obama for making it much worse. Some think that Obama has done the best that anyone could have to save the US from another Great Depression. Some moms, like me, feel that although other Democrats would have been better for the economy, Obama was better than any Republican, who likely would have pushed us into another Great Depression, & no one could have done a lot with the mess Bush left. Maybe Clinton could have done better, but no one was going to perform miracles in a mere 4 years.
So, I'm curious. For those of you that feel that McCain or a third party candidate would have done a better job saving the US from the Great Recession that Bush led the US into, what would they have done differently & better? What was their economic platforms to save the US in 2008 & beyond?
I honestly can't remember their economic platforms any longer. I'm pretty confident that most of the voting citizenry didn't trust them after the destruction of the US economy by Bush. & I'm pretty confident that 4 years later people were hoping for quicker solutions that any president could provide.
