One percent growth, and that was mainly due to Obamacare spending. Otherwise, negative growth. China now is a stronger economy than the U.S. Crazy thing is, there are still enough uninformed Americans that they might elect Obama for a third term if he could run. And, instead of a smart Republican, they might actually elect Hillary to continue this downward spin of the once great U.S.

Romney would have helped our economy. He knew how to turn things around. Obama just can't wrap his abilities around a real, workable solution.

We live in an Obama-Nation now, there are no more excuses five years in. Half the country is on food stamps and the unemployment picture does not factor in those who have lost their unemployment benefits and are out of the system. Nothing of real benefit will happen in this county until Mr. Obama's term is up, and we adopt sound financilal policies that promote hard work and reward. High Taxes and wasteful spending along with socialist ideals will always lead to a sluggish existence.

SCfan, are you saying that it is better to have a more socialist and tightly government controlled economy like China? Part of living in a capitalist society is putting up with economic downturns.

Putting up with something is a lot different than having something forced upon you by corrupt socialist lawmakers, judges and a president that lies constantly. It's called needless suffering. Just ask all the people who have lost their jobs, health insurance. Lowered wages, and welfare and food stamp recipients this past five years. Your most likely not among them.

It's George Bushes fault.

Obama has been working hard cleaning up the mess.

We should have the debt paid off in a year, and all Americans will have jobs.
