    :eek:

    With all the talk about how there is no one out there that can beat Obama,is the media forgetting that most Americans vote according to their bank accounts and well being? If there are really 15 million unemployed Americans out there,why would they vote for the President who promised to put them back to work? Even if 5 Million find work by the fall of 2012,that still leaves 10 Million unemployed Americans who would of lost patience by then. And if Gas is still over $3.00 a gallon in 2012 with High Food Prices,will the average American still vote for Obama?:eusa_shhh:

    Eventually, you guys are going to have to make up your mind.

    Either "The President can't create jobs, only the private sector can", or "Obama won't get re-elected because he didn't create jobs".

    Which one is it?

    A lot of folks simply Obama because of who he is, not what he is. The amount of racism evident on the left and the right over the president, in attack and defense, amazes me. I truly had thought we were past that. The older teenagers in my Sunday School class today said they are amazed and dismayed at the older generations. They held a straw vote for Pres, for and against, which spit about equally 14 to 12, but everyone of them said anyone who votes because of race hates America. Good kids.

    Obama needs to create closer to 500,000 jobs a month to even be a threat to the GOP nominee,and does anyone see that happening soon?

    Well that would be 90% of Blacks then right?

    So if you vote for a person because of their skin color, that's good?

    But if you vote against a person because of their skin color, that's bad?

    Thataboutright?

    400,000 jobs a month will bring unemployment down to a reasonable level,and even to create 200,000 a month would take a miracle, maybe we can get the Pope to help us out.

    Uhhh... I'm not sure what you're attempting to say here. Are you saying that 90% of Blacks only voted for Obama because he's black?

    You think those votes would have gone to McCain? Kerry got 90% of the Black vote too.

    So did Gore, and Clinton.

    Nope, that's not what they said, and that's why the kids laugh at folks like you.

    While I agree that the president can't personally do much to create jobs or grow an economy, his policies surely affect both; in a positive way, or as in the present case, in a negative way.
