Basically, yeah. Snoop puts it about right, with some F-bombs. George W. Bush really really messed up America. He took Republican craziness to its logical extreme and got the country in two wars, raised the debt and crashed the economy. Basically, he broke everything. It’s taking Obama a while to clean it up, and the Republicans aren’t helping.
It’s funny watching American politics from here. It seems like half of the country is just crazy, but it’s still the most interesting political sport around. What’s strangest is watching the Republican party descend into sheer, destructive madness. When I was young Republicans were kinda evil, but smart. Now there’s just evil and dumb.
I’ve been watching Real Time With Bill Maher and when he has all ‘liberal’ guests on they have rational conversations and it seems like problems can be solved. When he has ‘conservatives’, however, they simply don’t live in the same universe of facts. It’s like the premises are just not the same. For many Republicans, the ideology seems to warp reality – tax cuts for the rich are always necessary, supply-side economics works (despite being tried and failing multiple times), contraception is bad, government health care is evil, and this is all a slippery slope towards the Anti-Christ. Oh, and war is fun and easy and torture is fine. It’s just madness.
But anyways, go Snoop Lion, and Obama.
