A lot of action has been stymied due to GOP filibustering.

"A lot of action has been stymied due to GOP filibustering."

Yeah, if it weren't for all that filibustering by the GOP, the democrats could have come up with a budget sometime in the last 3 years. Let me guess, it's George Bush's fault, isn't it? Is it George Bush's fault that Obama said the economy is doing fine? In 20 years will everything bad still be Bush's fault?

@atl134 said, "A lot of action has been stymied due to GOP filibustering."

And with good reason.

For example, in 2009, ~$800 billion was authorized to be spent in the name of "stimulating the economy." As of today, the results are in. We still have a very weak and staggering economy with only a 1.9% GDP growth rate and an unemployment rate of 8.2%. The return on investment was a staggering failure.

But this President wants to do the same thing again. He fails to comprehend that this "experiment" did not work.

Been there - done that. Don't do it again.

Obama is trying to founder our country in unsustainable debt and the GOP isn't going to give him free rein to enslave our grandchildren with wasteful debt. Good for the GOP!!

We all know Obama is seeking to convince voters that his economic remedies are working and that his Republican rival Mitt Romney's policies would trigger an economic crisis. About two-thirds of Americans believe Republican former President George W. Bush is responsible for the nation's struggling economy, with a smaller percentage blaming Democratic President Barack Obama. About 68 percent of the more than 1,000 adults surveyed nationwide said Bush, who left office in January 2009, deserves a "moderate amount" or a "great deal" of the blame for the U.S. economic woes compared to 52 percent who pointed to his successor Obama. Among Democrats, 90 percent blamed Bush for the weak economy and only 19 percent said Obama should carry much of the blame. Independent voters, who could play a critical role in the November election, were more likely to blame Bush (67 percent) than Obama (51 percent). Bush's tax cuts combined with increased spending to fight two wars, among other costs, helped plunge the nation into a deep economic crisis.

Perhaps we should give Obama 4 more years and also free rein to enslave our grandchildren, due to GOP deregulations and filibustering their faults.

I thought Mitt didn't want government intervention in the economy. I guess he flipped yet again. I heard the Romney campaign is selling Mitt sweatshirts. They're 100% reversible. In the end, Mitt keeps ripping on the President but never gives us a reason to vote for him. Poor Mitt....

There must be some reason why Romney is making Obama break out in a sweat. What does Obama know that you don't?

@ Esquire

The President gives us plenty of reasons to vote for Mitt. Seriously, unemployment numbers are high, American household wealth is down, gas prices are high, his party can't seem to even want to pass a budget....

Obama can't take responsibility for his inept leadership.

I thought he was cutting the deficit in half, and lowering unemployment. Ninety five percent of working Americans will have tax cuts.

Just words with no meaning except for the suckers.
