0bama has wasted 4 years all he has done is make things worse, 60 / 70% of the people want his one boondoggle ,0bambcare, repealed. He has borrowed and spent us into a pit of debt that we will never be able to repay. He is like a crazy person that charges so much on their credit card that all they can pay is the interest and keeps using the card.
housing market crashed in the 2008 recession / crash ... on Georgie Porgie's watch ... and yes it lingers on .. there's a general slump worldwide .. UK, Aust, Europe etc and its tragic ..
0bama inherited a teetering economy from Bush and promptly pushed it off a cliff.
Off topic but great profile pict.
OOOO Daja Moo, the feeling I've heard that bull before.
So it is your opinion that if someone has worked hard been industrious, innovative and successful that they should be punished by being forced to pay for your health care, Is that what you want ? Is that your only ambition to do nothing and be rewarded for it?
Think about it when you entered the work force what was a middle class income? According to your profile that was around 27 years ago and that average middle class income was $25,000 , a new home cost around $70,000, What do you think that middle class income will be in another 20 years ? Yup over your magic $200,000 And that is what 0bama and the democrats are counting on that and you being too stupid to see it.
Obama, Bush... same animal, different face. There's no difference between Republicans and Democrats. They tell you the lies you want to hear to get elected and then they turn their backs on you and do whatever their corporate masters tell them to do.
When they prove that the moon is made of green cheese!. What a retarded question. Oblunder has had 3 years, 2 of those years was with a democratic house and senate. they did nothing to solve problem. obluncer did how ever manage to take TAX monies and give it to his friends ( solyndra, Solar trust) and the oblunder is paying $ 400.0 + per gallon for bio fuels. and one of this companies that is making the bio fuels is owned by a friend of oblunder, he was a big contributer to oblunders campaign.So these economy belongs to oblunder, he himself said that if he didnt turn it around in a year he would be a 1 term president. So the Economy belongs to oblunder 100 %. Ohh yes and lets not forget that while we are struggling oblunder had played 100 rounds of golf. has had 1 cabinet meeting in the past 7 months. but he has a sh*t load of vacations.
somebody said something about being a slave to the government. i am already a slave to the government. i get taxed for buying the clothes, food , and medicines my children need. i smoke. i say tax the hell out of me for that, but not for necessary things.
So what has he done to improve things?
well didn't his grandma teach him when you assume you make an @zz out of you and me
not much i would say, but if you had been out in his position with such a huge mess to fix what could you have done? the problems will not be fixed in four or eight years. but seriously, has there ever been a time in our country's history when things were good for everyone? it goes up and down and generally caters to wealthy. i honestly do not believe our country will ever be straightened out because too many americans are greedy and conceited. i have the right to vote but i dont anymore. politians will say anything they think people want to hear. its kind of pointless
public healthcare is NOT a bad thing. if there were easier access to healthcare, many people could get the medical care they need and would be able to function enough to join the workforce and be productive before their health condition got so bad they have to need ssi or other public assistance
people have short memories. i live in the south, and i certainly do not speak for everyone, but a majority of the people around me would most likely not be as hard on Obama were he not black. as for clinton, people like to remember only that he had a woman under his desk playing with his trouser snake
haha im going to be evil and say that i think bush jr had a baggie of plastic army men from the dollar store and a map and sat at his desk going "pew pew" with toy guns
Do you realize that we are currently taxed at tle lowest rate than at any time in the past 100 years? During most of the last century the top income earners were taxed at between 70% and 91%. They are now taxed at about 15%. Not only has the country has lost revenue and also that those top wage earners have vast amounts of cash available to lobby (buy) politicians.
Its not entirely his fault but he is not the 1 to fix it. Sadly I doubt Romney can fix it either. What people don't seem to see is that the system has become too flawed. Like all other "great" civilizations, America will fall
Certainly. He been too busy campaigning the last three years.
I'd say the problem goes back even further, it's too bad this video isn't better known:
of course it goes further back, but with bush noone seems to remember there was a surplus when he got in and a huge deficit when he got out.
I'm no economist, but I've also heard some I trust argue that the surplus he inherited was due to a false Wall Street paper asset bubble that was inevitably going to burst.
I completely agree with you if you say the bad economy is a leftover from Bush and Obama is trying to clean up the mess. This is a difficult job however and so I can't blame him for not succeeding.
What I notice is that Obama tries to look at the rest of the world to find his solutions. There are some typically European things I've seen him introducing in America. And I think that's a good thing. America is not an island, it's part of the world. The American economy is part of the world economy. Obama realizes that.
Now looking back at the economic crisis, wich is not only and American thing. The whole world suffers from it, and so the world needs to come up with a solution. America is part of the world and so they can play a role in this, but they can never do it all alone.
No, not all of the economy is his fault but he has only made it get worse not better. He had the chance to turn it around when he took office but nooooooo, he did exactly what everyone said he shouldn't have done. Never should have bailed out any company or bank, gives money to his croonies to blow on stupid projects and believes the gov't is the only way to fix anything......
And spending all his time on a healthcare law that doesn't work, will never work and only raise the taxes on the poorest people & seniors so that they get no health care coverage unless they pay for it out of pocket is criminal to say the least..
How in the name of "Harry Houdini" is anything going to get straighten out when for the past 3 1/2 years the Republicans have tried to make anything he does a failure. I also live in the "Jim Crow" South and his being black has everything to do with the Bible Thumping Right hating him.
You do know that Jim Crow was a democrat right?
To imply that the parties are the same as 100 years ago is foolish. Ever heard of the Dixiecrats? By today's standards Ole's Abe would have been a Flaming Liberal..
Jesus, there's no satisfying the yanks/ smiles .. the entire world trust's Obama; like it or not - he's your man at this time and you need to do business with the world .. Bush spent trillions pursuing fictional WMD .. remember? What the hell did anybody care about Iraq .. but oh no, it had to be done .. now its about spending Billions rebuilding the damn place - there was a point in respect of Afghanistan, so a bunch of Countries joined the campaign ,,, it good that Obama is effecting a gradual pull-out - Jesus, the US is going to save trillions .. so healthcare - 60M Americans live below the poverty line .. soon (and it will get better) .. thousands of decent Americans will not have to rise at 2:00AM - middle of winter and line up on a football field (60 Minutes program) in the hope they'll make the cut for a little free medical advice between 7 & 8:00AM on any given day!
You trust 0bama? you can have him, I hope the two of you will be happy together.
people have short memories. the country was on the brink of ruin when bush left office.
On the brink but not in then 0bama pushed it right over the edge.
Obama is bad bush was worse, But Obama is the one who bailed out the banks instead of letting them default. Oh and Mitt I call him "Willy" is crazy I hope he picks Bobby Jindal as his VP now that would be funny.
This just sounds like an excuse at this point okay what has he done to make it better?
He did have 4 years
Well states still have the right to opt out of part of the plan and the computer filing is only causing more complication so yeah it's a real big win
healthcare law is a joke and very bad for this country, by forcing people to pay more in taxes for something they could have gotten cheaper or for free anyway what is the upside? States are dropping medicaid like hot cakes(3 so far have) and that will only hurt the poor and seniors who can not afford more in taxes to pay for something that they were recieving free. And he has not done a thing in regards to fixing roads or bridges out here in the west, drive down a interstate some time and see for yourself
and the cost of oblunder care is $ 2.6 trillion in the first decade. Why on earth is spending more when you have to borrow .40 C on every dollar you spend EVER a good idea?
No, I do not believe such silly lies as that. Barack Obama has been trying to blame George W. Bush for his own failings for four years. When will you learn not to believe such ridiculous lies?
YES, it is ridiculous lies! You are so gullible. You need to do some research. Politicians have been blaming past administrations for their problems for a long time. Barack Osama just carries it to a new level of idiocy.
I have an opinion on this and I do agree with what you are saying, however, I am not educated enough on this subject to make a statement that won't be ridiculed by some epers who feel their politics and beliefs are the only ones that matter.
what does it matter if anyone ridicules you? you have a right to your opinions, educated enough or not. you learn as you go, and if you "argue it out" or talk it out, as it may be, then you are likely to learn and also be able to share your thoughts. and maybe someone will learn something from you.
