The hope of the radical right of a bad economy to elect Romney failed. Are they
going to obstruct for another four years?
Before barack's first spendathon of 787 Billion, he said we needed to start
spending money whereenver we could "to prevent unemployment from reaching
8%"He spent the money.It reached 8%It
reached 9%It reached 10%It reached 11%
Allow me to paraphrase for barack:The cure to our financial problems
is to continue to spend lots of moneyI am better at spending your
money than you areIt is Mitt Romney and rich people's fault for
our economic problems. It they weren't rich, then we would all be poor,
and then we'd be equal so it would be better.There you have it
folks, no need to listen tonight
It's an ObamaNation. That's all it is. What a waste of 51% of our
nation. The product of a " Dumb Down Education" gone bad.
A populaur catchphrase during the election was"Are you better off than you
were 4 years ago?" If you look at these numbers, and the FACTS. Your only
conclusion could be that you bet you are. Job growth has been slow, mostly
because of the republicans desire to make Obama a one term president. Are they
going to obstruct for another 4 years? In the 2010 election, they said it was
All about jobs. The have NOT passed 1 jobs bill since. They have however,
attacked workers rights, womens rights, repealed Obamacare 43 times, and wasted
our time and money. Defecits are falling. All numbers are going in the right
direction Much to the despair of the republican party. In 2014 i hope republican
obstructionists are shown the door. Get them out of the way, and the democrats
will finish cleaning up, another republican mess. Just as they have for decades.
Republican policies donot work. They never have, and they never will!
All I know is my 401K collapsed under "W." It has doubled in value since
Mr. Obama took office. Obama's careful management of the economy, injecting
liquidity when necessary and gradually bringing the resulting deficits down each
year has stimulated confidence. DOW 14000 is a whole lot better than Bush 8000.
Thanks, Mr. President.
@homebrewYou say the Republicans have not passed one jobs bill!!
Actually, the Republican House has passed job creation bills that never get to
Obama's desk because Obama does not like them so they are never given a
chance by Harry Reid and the Democratic Senate. Also Obama's own budget
that he proposed could not pass the Democratic controlled Senate and it has been
four years and counting since they have passed a budget. Meanwhile Paul
Ryan's budget bill that did not pass the House was at least an attempt to
pass a budget. Sounds to me like the obstructionists are Obama and the
Democratic Senate not the Republican controlled House of Representatives.
It reached 11% - Chris B So we are in agreement Chris B.
the unemployment has gone DOWN. :) FYI? National unemployment was
at 4% when Bill Clinton left office. It was 7.8% when Obama took
office. Which President was in between...?
Regan tripled the debt.W. Bush, doubled the debt.Obama?
Has done neither.Regan, raised the debt ceiling x18 times.W. Bush, x7 times.Obama? x4 times.The constant attack
against Obama is that the national debt is the highest it's ever been. To
be fair, if Obama added ONE dollar to the debt it would still be the
'highest' national debt. By a dollar.Keep in mind, George
W. Bush did not end his wars in Iraq or Afghanistan. They were not even
budgeted. So, that means the next President had to add the wars to the
budget.Which President was that? I think we are doing a
lot better.**Budget Deficit To Drop Below $1 Trillion in 2013: CBO -
By ANDREW TAYLOR - AP - 02/05/13'Obama wants to ease the cuts
by replacing them with new tax revenue and alternative cuts, but a clash is
looming with Republicans who insist that last month's tax increase on
wealthier earners will be the last tax hike they permit.'If my
main motivation was to lower the debt....why would I vote
Fact:Barack increasedthe national debt more
than bush Senior, bush junior, clinton, reagan, carter, washington,
eisehnower,and every other US presidentCombined.Every other US president combinedhas not
raised the debtas much as barack managed to dohimself.wow barack
If Obama added one dollar to the debt, it would be 'more' debt than
any other President. So, focusing on the dollar amout of debt is a sham. As, we are still adding the cost of wars George W. Bush started,
aren't we? Now, has Obama doubled the debt? No.
To "homebrew" actually we are not better off. Yes the numbers may look
like we are better off, but we are not.See "U.S. Income Gap
Rose, Sign of Uneven Recovery" in the NY Times."Food Stamps
Used By Record 42.2 Million Americans This Thanksgiving" Huffington Post"Labor Force Participation Rate Lowest In Three Decades, Though
Despair Doesn't Explain It All" Huffington Post.How can you
say that things are getting better when we are earning LESS than before Obama,
have more dependance on food stamps, and fewer people working?
"Today I'm pledging to cut the deficit we inherited by half by the end
of my first term in office," Obama said. "Now, this will not be easy. It
will require us to make difficult decisions and face challenges we've long
neglected. But I refuse to leave our children with a debt that they cannot
repay, and that means taking responsibility right now, in this administration,
for getting our spending under control"barack obamaFebruary 23, 2009For those unaware(running from reality), the
Some comments:* Obama has spent more money then any human being in
history.* Gold has doubled in value in the passed four years.* North
Korea, and Iran are producing nuclear bombs, while we get rid of ours.*
Under Obama, Egypt is strengthening their military while we downsize ours.People need to record Obama's speech tonight, and re-play it in a
couple years. Listing the untruths will take a few pages.
Check the price of gas, and number of citizens on food stamps,--between the
first Obama State of the Union, and now.Enough said.
There is very little freight.Very few businesses are buying or selling
products.NO GROWTH!That is the truth! So what
happens to the economy when the average household is taking $150.00 less home
each week thanks to increased taxes?Then add to that the increases in
heathcare insurance?A lack of consumer confidence and a fear of even
greater tax increases? We are all afraid to spend what little money
we have left! That all adds up to a dead economy.Does it
matter what the President says when he is not doing anything to help get us
@wolf: Just tell me how much has the President spent. And please
prove it because he do's not have any control of the check book the
congress do's. So i will ask you one more time JUST HOW MUCH HAS HE SPENT?
Oh and you ask about the price of gas whats he got to do with that? He
don't control it or has any other President. Oh realy gold has gone over
5000 a ounce. And about food stamps well i guess if the GOP had got off the
hands and voted on some job bills alot of people might have been back to work
all ready but hey it's more importen to them to just say NO. and be done
with it. And you realy need to get over it your boy lost time to move on.
