R. Bechard: Enough blame to go around


This is in response to the letter from Rolande Caron (Jan. 30), in which she blamed the George W. Bush administration for the mess the national economy is in.

Enough is enough. President Barack Obama has been president for three years and during that time spent $5.4 trillion, according to news media. The Bush administration spent $4.3 trillion during those eight years.

Caron should blame both sides for the big mess the economy is in. Seems to me that in 2009-10, the liberal Democrats owned the House and Senate and the economy got worse. There will be more to come.

If the nation has four more years of President Obama, it will turn to socialism.

Time for Americans to open their eyes.
