4 years ago we were told:

"I will cut the deficit in half during my first four years or I'll be a one term President"

The deficit increased

No matter what Obama's "message" will be, he has proven that its easier to vote for a Democrat than find a job and work for a living!

Regan tripled the national debt.

W. Bush doubled the national debt.

Obama? Has not done either.

It is evident that people who want to focus on the debt, when x5 years ago it doubled with barely a word.

Regan raised the debt ceiling x18 times.

W. Bush? x7 times.

President Obama? x4 times.

Why would I vote Republican about the debt, when they have a proven track record to make the national debt...worse?

FYI: Senator Orrin Hatch, voted to raise the debt ...

x16 times.

Re: Chris B.

He should have been a one term President. The deficit has increased, the debt has increased, (going on 17 trillion) unemployment stays about the same, GDP is down, ect.
Yet when you listen to Democrats they say we are on the right track and on the road to recovery. This is going to be the "New Normal". That's how Obama and the Democrats will try to sell this to the American people. Given enough time, when no one remembers unemployment at 4 percent and forgets that our national debt was only at around 10 trillion when Obama came into office. Run out the clock on the American Memory. It might work.

Finally! Four years after Barry said that the economy would be his primary focus, he is going to get around to "focusing" on it tonight? That's awesome! I'm so giddy right now, I'm having a hard time typing this.

Mountanman. True Dat!
