Yes We Are! (Limerick)

If you aren’t sure whether we’re better off now than we were four years ago, check out these headlines from September 2008.

Yes We Are! (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Are we better off now? Yes we are!
To suggest that we’re not is bizarre.
Prez Barack turned the tide,
Though Republicans tried
To ensure things remain way sub-par.

    i think blame for the last several years can def be spread and when you stall things out are you really doing your job?

    Great post MADam!
    Some folks would have us think that the Democrats have done nothing these past four years although nearly every proposed piece of legislation has been shot down by Great Obstuctionist Party filibusters. And then they will try to argue this fact by claiming that the Dems had a filibuster proof super-majority from ’08-’10 but they want to count Joe Lieberman as a Dem, which he most definitely is not!

    Everbody should know
    We’re better off than four years ago
    Republicans dispute it
    For they cannot refute it
    So all thay can do is eat crow

  4. John OBrien says:

    the republicans like to spin spin spin,
    they have hearts that are all made of tin,
    they talk and digress,
    and block any progress,
    and will stoop to cheating to win

  5. John Sardo says:

    Are we better off now? Yes, we are.
    The market is soarig afar.
    But we cannot desert
    The people who hurt
    So reach he must for a hopeful star.
    Yes, we’re better off now.
    The prez deserves a bow.
    Yet it hasn’t been fun
    Left a big job undone.
    Now bipartisanship he must disavow.
