They're doing terrible. But I guess I really don't expect anything less. The country's being driven into the ground by the Democrats, ever since they took control of Congress in 2007, with their excessive spending, power, and control. Since when does the federal government succeed at anything? So why give them more control and put our faith and trust in them? All these big government solutions are complete and utter failures...always have been, always will. And I'm not denying that Bush spent too much either, including in Iraq...but hey, at least he was smart enough to give people tax cuts to keep the economy moving and promote job creation through business tax cuts and focusing on small businesses.
