In November of 2008 it seemed that the majority of American citizens had liberal views on the country. We had elected a liberal President of the United States. After eight years of an extreme conservative controlling the White House, it seemed to make sense to have a person with liberal views fix the problems created by the conservative. Barack Obama has what some call extreme liberal views on the world and he ran on a liberal platform. From his beliefs on health care to the economy, as well as his education and energy policies, it is his liberal views that made him so popular with the American people.
* President Barack Obama believes that the government should provide an alternative health care insurance option for those who do not already have or are not happy with their own insurance. Not only would this provide health insurance to those who are unemployed or cannot afford it, but it would create competition by forcing insurance companies to lower their rates and improve care. This is an extremely liberal idea. Conservatives do not believe in the government getting involved with the health care system. President Obama’s opposition criticize his liberal views by claiming he is proposing socialized medicine and just looking to grow government in every way he can.
* With our economy in a deep recession, President Obama has taken a liberal stance on fixing the financial system by suggesting stronger regulation in order to prevent the big banks and investors from taking the same risks they have been for the last thirty years. Many of the president’s supporters are in favor of his liberal views because the conservative’s methods have not been working for a long time.
What doesn’t make sense to many Americans is how conservatives, who got us into the mess we are in now, are so quick to judge President Obama’s liberal approach. President Bush came into office with a record surplus and left Obama with a huge financial deficit. America also got involved with two wars under president Bush. So now that a man with liberal views is in office, conservatives suddenly claim to be financial and foreign policy experts. President Obama has been in office for a little over a year and conservatives are criticizing him for not having fixed the problems of the previous eight years. The partisanship of the republicans has gone to far. They are a big part of why we are in this current mess, so it is time for President Obama and the democrats to use their majority and restore faith in the United States government by bringing change to the politics and policies of the Bush administration.
