    I am just curious as to how many republicans feel they are better off today than they were before Bush took office??

    Personally, I'm doing better today than I was in 2000, but then I attribute that more to my own hard work than anything else.

    If you rely upon politicians to make things better for you, you'll likely wind up disappointed.

    I think I am about the same. Not any worse for sure.

    I'm much better off. But I don't feel that. I make an honest assessment of my situation and come to a conclusion. And I don't wait for Presidents to come "rescue" me either, no matter what their party.

    I'm much better off.

    Ericaobros, is your current situation not going well? Did you need some advice on how to turn it around? Or did you just want to argue with someone?

    i much better off now then i was 8 years ago. i make nearly 10x what i was making 8 years ago, oh and that was w/o the governments help. its kind of funny what happens when you work hard and care about your job. you don't need the government to hold your hand.

    The question is not are you better off.

    The question is, Is the country better off that it was eight years ago?
