Reader comment on item: Barack Obama through Muslim Eyes
in response to reader comment: Are you better off, Luigi?

Anne, those are all good questions, but the reality is what has happened in DC has had limited effect on me.

See, I didn't vote for Bush. I didn't vote for Kerry either.

The question of am I better off? That's the wrong question, because I don't vote based on myself but on what I feel is best for the vulnerable of society, especially the unborn.

Rarely do democrats and republicans provide the whole picture.

Is Bush better off? He once had a 90% approval rating. I would say not so much. The left has never really liked him and conservatives can't stand his attempted back-door amnesty deal.

Halliburton? I guess so with all the contracts.

Personal Safety? I feel safe with Bush in office. Aside from a few bombings of military recruitment centers that did little damage, no terror attacks since 9-11, but we won't be so lucky I think if Obama is worried about the rights of people in other countries.

Gas prices?? Depends on who you ask. Democrats don't seem to understand a concept called supply-side economics (because Pelosi wants to take credit for saving the world) and neither party was really into alternative energy (including nuclear). That's a problem that preceded Bush and should have been addressed by Nixon if you ask me.

The returning injured servicemen is a BIG issue that we need to deal with. Walter Reed was a disaster, no question.
