    @ DVD.. You make valid points but what I dislike most about Obama and most Democrats is their constant finger pointing and lack of accountability for their own failures! Never have they taken any responsibility for our economic problems and constantly point at GWB while claiming they are leading us out of our economic problems! All evidence indicates just the opposite is happening and still they claim otherwise! Baloney to all of what they say! Its past time for some better leadership!

    If this was occurring during a Republican presidency, the Democrats would be pointing fingers just as much as Republicans are. The big thing is understanding, truly understanding, politics and ideology aside, what's happening with the economy, and understanding short and long-term solutions.

    The 2007-2009 recession was no more Obama's fault than the 2001-2002 was Bush's. Things had been building underneath for some time for the current conditions. It's better to understand the causes and address them, than to make news with the latest fingerpointing.

    It would probably help some if some more of the off-shored work was brought back, but it would also help if those working Americans were truly compensated for their time and skills, rather than at the minimum legally allowed. But as long as enough of those in power don't feel that those not in power are worth any effort, we're going to see more tough times for most people in the country.

    More proof of Obama’s imaginary recovery?
