|Winner of the actual "most |
important election" of my lifetime
Really? I don't think so, Newt.
As I recall, that's exactly how Democrats felt about the election in 2004, and we were right. Democrats desperately feared the impact of four more years of President Bush, and history has proven those fears to be justified.
We lost the 2004 election to GWB, and as a result: we saw our government continue to mismanage an illegal and unjust war, we exploded our national debt, we experienced a devastating housing bubble, and we saw the near collapse of our financial industry. All of this together resulted in the worst period of American economic recession in eight decades.
So is 2012 the most important election in our lifetimes? Nope. The 2004 election was and we blew it.
