Our economy has not done well under GOP presidents; growth is poor. De-regulation and failure to enforce the remaining regulations resulted in the worst economic disaster since the great depression of the 1930s and stock market crash of 1929. It has resulted in costly, unpaid-for wars of U.S. aggression, and a terrible decline in the reputation of the United States in the rest of the world.
The right is bad for the country. It is not a coincidence or an accident that the GOP is distrusted, that the Tea Party has huge disapproval ratings, or that the right lost the 2012 election cycle.
