    I've noticed that his supporters do nothing but list perceived soft skills (he's nice, he's patient, he's intelligent, etc.).

    The only thing that truly matters are the results. And here are the FACTS with regards to the results from his policies and the results from conservative policy:

    The first 3 years under Barack Obama (inheriting a mediocre economy):

    1.) Added more to the national debt than all US Presidents in history combined during the same period

    2.) Unemployment skyrocketed - the longest period of +8% unemployment sans the Great Depression.

    3.) Energy prices skyrocketed - gas prices nearly tripled from the time he took office

    4.) Erosion of freedoms - federal government now mandates that every citizen must engage in commerce with regards to health insurance

    The first 3 years under Ronald Reagan (inheriting the second worse economy in US history):

    1.) Grew the economy at a rate of 6%

    2.) Unemployment was dropping like a rock from the double-digits experienced under Jimmy Carter. The US was creating 600,000 jobs per month

    3.) Dropped inflation from 13.5% in 1980 to 5.1% in 1982

    By the end of the Reagan Administration, the US had created over 20 million new jobs; expeirenced economic growth for 25 years like the nation had not seen in a century; and *produced one of the lowest unemployment rates in modern U.S. history (unemployment hit a 14 year low in June of 1988). As Reagan left office, the nation was experiencing its sixth consecutive year of economic prosperity.

    CON$ervoFascists know that all of that is a complete lie, but lying is the Holy Eucharist of CON$ervoFascism.

    I highlighted some of the most obvious.
    Obama inherited the worst economy since the Reagan Recession which at the time was the worst recession since the Great Depression. Reagan CREATED the second worst recession, he didn't inherit it.
    There was never a time during the Carter administration when unemployment was double digits. The highest it ever reached was 7.8%. Reagan on the other hand jacked UE up to 10.8% by the end of his second year. And that was the U-3 rate which CON$ tell us is much less that the real rate. CON$ say the real rate is more than double the U-3 rate which would probably make Reagan's real rate around 25%.
    Reagan did not create 20 million new jobs, the most he created was 15 million as opposed to Clinton's 25 million.
    Economic growth ended with the Bush I recession, hardly 25 years.

    How did obama inherit the economy when he was a member of the democratic controlled Senate when the economy crashed? That's like a home owner doing his own plumbing and not knowing what he's doing and does damage to his plumbing and blames the plumber that came to fix his mess.

    Sorry, I keep forgetting that Bush was the president who wasn't president and a first year junior Senator was infinitely more powerful. :cockoo:

    BTW, does that apply to St Ronnie also? Did the Dems win the Cold War, create 15 million jobs, etc.?

    Not sure this thread qualifies for the Clean room as the immediate assumption is biased.

    President Obama has attempted and in many ways changed America internally and externally, the nation after our last president was looked at as the 'Honey Boo Boo' nation. Remember the headlines in the British papers. One can argue, if they were fair, but results demonstration they were right. If I were to consider one thing that has had immediate help it is his Court appointees, the opposition wants control of government, and controlling law controls the nation and its people.

    "The probability, then, is that the next election will be close. It could also be fateful. Not because it is apt to enable the kind of electoral transformation the country urgently needs. But the Republican Party already has a majority on the Supreme Court, which increasingly attacks the rights of workers and consumers. If it captures the White House and both houses of Congress it will pass Draconian measures and deploy repressive tactics to stifle public dissent. All in the name of freedom. What to do?" William E.

    Several quick contradictions concerning Rottweiler's posts underlines his mistaken material when put into content: 10.8% unemployment in RR's 34th month in office, raised taxes three times, raised the debt ceiling sixteen times, lied about Iran-Contra.
