    Where the hell is that economy that Barry and his posse keep telling everyone is getting better?

    You know the one that he's now got his laser sight on??

    Oh wait. I forgot. He doesn't give a shit. He's not running for POTUS again and will be taken care of by we the taxpayer for the rest of his jackass life. Never mind.

    Hey lets all give three big cheers for a declining standard of living......hiphip horray, hip hip hoo......ah fuck it, who cares if we have a declining standard of living.

    As has been pointed out repeatedly by the right wingers. Our "poor" people, when compared to the rest of the worlds poor, just have got it so good.

    And the middle? Well, just grab your boot straps and jerk yourself right off into the wealthy class. And if you can't do that, oh well.

    But the ultra wealthy? They need all the help they can get from the rest of us. And don't be fucking wanting to tax them more. They have a hard row to hoe you know. Trying to figure out what to do with all that money is......taxing. I mean very hard.

    Obama is a fool and I bet he used to get his ass kicked often.

    Economy? Mark it down- I predict the FED will be disgraced as they will be forced to increase QE by the end of the year.

    If you like your unemployment check you can keep it.


    Does anyone know of any large group about to lose their benefits? Isn't this just an attempt to change the subject from Obamacare? Let's talk about the Dem's favorite issues, shall we? Income inequality, raising the minimum-wage, illegal immigration. Don't pay attention to the abortion the left has made of Obamacare or our foreign policy. Let's talk about how concerned Obama was during his last Hawaiian vacation. Forget the fact that nothing he says can be trusted anymore or never could. He's simply trying to go back to re-addressing wedge-issues that worked for him in the past but never lifted a finger to solve nor plans to.

    He throws his base a bone periodically, but does he ever solve anything?

    No......

    'I wish I was more successful than I was, must since I wasn't, I will continue to blast the successful and question why they are not happy making my life more comfortable at their expense...those selfish, evil HARD WORKING RISK TAKING JOB CREATING profiteers!'
