    Thanks for the tip to disregard Nate Silver's election forecast.

    Thanks for the tip regarding unemployment and growth forecasts.

    what is disturbing to me is that you seem unwilling to understand that the empty rhetoric of the past (calling Obama a socialist for example) did not work and is not doing anything to help move our country forward. how about trying to become part of the solution instead of the problem. Offer real world common sense solutions instead of empty rhetoric.

    The real tragedy of an Obama election (let alone re-election) is that his vision for American is based upon the European democratic socialism model; where there are numerous public services, but at the cost of chronic high unemployment and dependency on government; which are bankrupting the system and leading to major societal changes.

    It is disturbing that America has crossed the threshold; turning its back on the entrepreneurial and free spirit that made it great and is now aggressively devolving into just another dysfunctional nanny state.

    High unemployment and slow growth are the new normal

    perhaps the GOP should have presented real solutions to make that happen instead of using the same old empty rhetoric that lost them the last election. You can be mad and stomp your feet on the sidelines or you can join at the table and be part of the solution its up to you.

    Slow is the word that needs to stay in the public focus. I'm annoyed that Obama will do just as he's done in the past four years yet will claim all credit for a slowly improving economy. The economy didn't tank slowly so why should we be content with a slow recovery when we don't need to be?
