Are you really better off now than you were when Obama took office? Not many people are.
I've never really liked that question as a litmus for whether or not to support an incumbent. Whether I, or anyone else in particular, is better or worse off usually has very little to do with our leaders. That said, I do wonder how liberals can continue to support Obama. He's had plenty of opportunity to reverse the damage done by the Bush administration and refuses to do so. Instead, he's launched aggressive corporatist policies that deepen the collusion between government and big business.
I didn't vote for him, but the biggest problem I have with him is that he's not a liberal. I fail to see how self-professed liberals or progressives can continue to support him.
Nobody except the super wealthy have been "better off" since the 1990s.
well the thread heading tells it all
there is no hope for those he promised it to and there is no change just a differant puppet in a suit .
meanwhile we are just lurching from one bad president to another .
Agreed, "Not many people are." And it will get worse. The debt ceiling debacle gives all insight on what the President's priorities are. Still no hint of what his plan is - - except the statement "I won't let you call my bluff!" ??!?

Works for me.
I'm voting for Bachman because she can throw better.
