    Do I expect to be better off in four years if Obama or Rmoney are elected?

    What happened in those 4 years?. Obama saved you?

    Is it easier to go to the store and buy things now than it was 4 years ago?

    Do you have a better job now than you had four years ago?

    Are you more respected now than you were 4 years ago?

    1. We prepared for years for an economic recession: one income budget on two incomes, getting out of credit card and other debt, and saved like crazy.

    2. Yes, it is easier to go to the store today and buy things.

    3. We have the same family business we had four years ago.

    4. We have always been respected.

    But, I have to say, looking at those numbers, it still pisses me off that I lost so much with the Bush crash. An amount of money that wouldn't even be a blip for George Bush or Mittens is huge to me. But, I really do try not to dwell on that and instead, just be glad I've gained it back since Obama has been in office.

    I confess though, that the possibility of Mittens winning is terrifying because of what it would do to our economy and our stock market.

    The housing crash hurt me bad, the only thing is, it started crashing in my area before I even knew who the hell Barack Obama was. You see I do not suffer from Obama derangement syndrome like you do, I am mentally stable and my memory sharp enough that I knew it was all going to collapse two years before it actually did and had a nice nest egg to restart. While it is so easy for some to blame everything on one man doing bad things for the last four years, I am in a better place these days because I had the foresight to know that the party was nearly over, did you somehow think the housing bubble was just going to go on-and-on? If so turn that finger around and start blaming the real fool.

    Hmmm, less people in the workforce under Obamination....I doubt they are better off without a job.

    Oh but Obamination chuckled about the "shovel ready jobs weren't shovel ready."

    It's all a joke to him because he doesn't feel any outcome from his stupidity since the taxpayer funds his life and the media covers up for him. His response to a bad economy is just to throw more money into the welfare pot believing people are happy with living on the edge their entire lives while he and his fat wife live it up in Hollywood, NYC, DC, Miami, overseas, etc.
