    On David Letterman, Obama said he's not concerned with the deficit in the short term, and couldn't remember how much the deficit is.

    A few years ago while campaigning against Bush he was very concerned with:

    * the Chinese credit card
    * a debt left to our grandchildren to pay off
    * the irresponsibility of Bush
    * how unpatriotic it is to get so far into debt

    Four years later, and six trillion dollars further in debt, and Obama is not concerned?

    Something stinks!

    the economy is improving at the slowest pace following any recession since the great depression. BO is NOT doing his job, but is doing an excellent job distracting voters from his abysmal performance.

    "deficits don't matter" Interesting you would use that quote to condemn bush/cheney when BO's deficits have been three times as much.

    And tell me, why did BO spend so much political capital pushing through Obamacare during his first two years rather than focusing on the economy? He HAD the opportunity to do something about the economy, but his desire to instill European style socialism with all it's concomitant ills outweighed any desire he may have had to help the economy. But how could he increase dependecy on the government by helping the economy improve? he couldn't, so he has done all he can to further supress the economy - dudd-frank, massive deficits, economic uncertainty, lies about his opponent, etc.

    And don't give me the lie about the porkulus rescuing the economy - less than 5% of the porkulus had been spent by the time the recession ended - it was CLEARLY NOT the porkulus that ended it.

    Voters sour on economy, but Obama job approval up’ says it all.

    Most Americans can see Obama trying to clean up after the republican spend fest of "deficits don't matter" GW, and trying to do it by himself since the republican congress is just picking up their paychecks or like Jason Chafetz puppy dogging Mit just hopin' for an cabinet appointment. The economy has been improving slowly, but then again mit's already saying it'll take him 8 to 10 years to start any real recovery but Obama has to do it in 4.

    Lost in DC, that's funny but no misinformation needed no out of context quotes used, mit and his loyal gang don't understand diplomacy, and don't care to.

    How can that be? Obama isn't doing a job. Just campaigning, golfing, and making TV appearances on David Letterman.

    He should be fired.

    BO must really have a talent if he can get people to feel good about being poor. Or maybe it's just the disinformation assault he and his cabal have launched against Romney, who wants people to be successful rathder than dependent on goverment.

    If you're satisfied with 8+% unemployment, $1.5 trillion deficits, anemic economic growth (if any), reduced personal income, a growing gap between rich and poor (the gap has NOT abated during BO's misadministration), a devalued dollar, lowered international standing, increased threat from terrorists, and constant attacks on religion and the family, go ahead and vote to re-elect the current mistake in the WH.

    Ho hum! Yet another "pep rally" speech disguised as news by the lamestream media.

    I wonder if in the "polling" they are now calling ONLY registered democrats to get their "opinions"?

    The only people who think Obama is doing a good job are the 47%! Keep those freebies coming Obama, we’ll keep voting for you! Who cares about the debt or our grandchildren!
