Here is the movie, narrated by Tom Hanks, that reminds us how far we have come from the disaster unfolding before President Obama took office to the current state of recovery. The current state could be better, but we know for sure that it could be a lot worse.
It would be such a shame to stop the policy of recovery and return to the policy of disaster that all the Republican Presidential candidates are prescribing.
If we need to go through another disaster for the American voters to really understand what the Republican policies are all about, the United States will not come out of it with anywhere near its current standing in the world.
Historically, all eras where one nation leads the world do eventually come to an end. Frequently the citizens of that nation bring about their own downfall. I really would not like that to happen in this country while I am still around.
