Please define "reckless".
Did Obama start a war? Or Two? Did he cut taxes for the rich? Did he gut all government support for small and medium business in the U.S.? Did Obama come up with sub-prime mortgages?
Did he try and help out pathetic auto manufacturers who were duped in the 50s and 60s into floating the stock market with a ponzi scheme inflicted on their own employees? Did he help inject a much more stimulus spending into the U.S. economy, all because others had created a recession that saw people take on absurd debt...? Oh, and was that stimulus spending meant to increase consumer confidence so they could take on more debt?
I'm not sure, but I think the Presidents responsible all had a B in their names, and not always the second letter.
I do love watching political revisionism at work. Down south it's all about finger pointing and blame and the last to get blamed gets to lose the next election. The U.S. is run by a bunch of short-sighted narcissists. Bush and other before him made decisions not based on long-term good, but short-term gain secure that they themselves and their friends would never be poor. 2 terms and so long suckers!
