    How much has the value of your home gone up since Obama was sworn in?

    How much has your pay increased?

    How much less do you have to pay for everything?

    How many of you ether lost your job in the last 4 years and got a better job?

    How many of you feel that your future is better as long as Obama or the Dems are in charge?

    Things were bad the last year under Bush but it can't be all put at his feet. If that's the case than everything that's going wrong or right in the economy today is Obama's fault.....which is impossible.

    If you think the economy is doing swell then why is it your home isn't worth as much as it used to be worth. Why is it so hard to find a qualified buyer willing to give you fair market value for your home. Why are so many homeowners holding mortgages that are "Underwater". Why did Obama float a program to solve this problem....then promptly drop it to start the GOP War on Women?

    How much has your pay increased under Obama. How much has your grocery bill gone up. How much has your utility bill gone up. How much has your phone bill, your cable bill, your internet bill gone up?

    How much has the price of gas gone up since Obama took the White House. The price when he took over was $1.80.......it's now $4.00 in states like CA, NY, NJ, FL, AK, HI,......

    Be honest. Is the dollar worth as much as it used to be worth?

    The MSM reported in 2005 that we had an anemic job growth of 150,000 new jobs in one month.

    Friday the MSM reported positive job growth of 115,000 in April......which was less than half of what it was reported in Feb.

    I guess your outlook depends on how it's reported.

    Clinton isn't president.

    Also Clinton had a GOP congress that wasn't set on fucking up the economy, Bush did......but that is nether here nor there.

    The choice is between Obama, a president that decided not to work with congress after two years of massive majorities, and Bush who had zero cooperation from congress his entire term.

    Try again.

    If you can name the policy he used to do that feel free.

    And Iraq isn't a valid domestic policy.

    Iraq's destiny was sewn up long before Obama got elected. Nice Obama took credit for it none the less...:eusa_whistle:

    Oh, it matters. Clinton was a Democrat. They economy is much improved under Obama. But the damage to this country after 8 years under Bush will take more than a measly 3 years to fix. Considering the enormous debt left by Bush, I suspect it will take decades.

    Worse, Republicans have publicly stated they would do everything they could to bring down this president.

    Worst, the true cost of the Iraq war has barely begun. How much do you think it will cost this country to take care of tens of thousands of Americans maimed in Iraq? Republicans would just "let them die". Democrats will make sure they get the care they deserve. No one could possibly believe a party that wants to cut day care and lies a country into war would take care of returning American servicemen. It's not possible.

    Yes.
    Clinton experienced several terrorist attacks and his responses only encouraged more. Clinton was the beneficiary of Reagan's policies that allowed him to cut defense and reduce the deficit.
    UE was lower under Bush than Clinton. And Bush never had a subordinate blowing him in the Oval Office.
