    We all have been taking sides and posting threads and yada, yada, yada.

    Who wins is not the purpose of this thread.

    Since Obama is the current President we have to use him for the purpose of this thread.

    What specifically has Obama done for you?


    No generalities. I'm not looking to hear, "he passed Obamacare." Or "he killed bin Laden".

    Those are generalities.

    How has he DIRECTLY impacted or changed your life for the better?



    Make it personal and relative. What has he done for you as a citizen. A person? How specifically has he improved your life?

    You get the idea.


    And no attacking each other, please.


    DISCLAIMER: Naturally none of us expect much from the resident trolls so just ignore them for a moment and not reply to them so as to not ruin the thread.

    Does a president have to personally impact your life? Most don't.

    I mean, my family is paying less taxes than under Bush, but besides that, not a whole lot.

    And the economy is turning around (My business is doing much better than 3.5 years ago and my home value is getting back up to where it was before the last year of Bush)

    I think if you're going to chose one over another there has to be some personalization of your choice.

    Less taxes? The Bush tax cuts, you mean?


    And now that I replied in kind. Can you read?

    No Booooooooooooosh!


    God Almighty some people are dumb!

    Care to expand on how that is personal to you? I think we all know that no matter who the President is or was?

    Cowman is spot on; pointing out (nicely) that this is a stupid thread posted by one of the newest right wing trolls. How arrogant that he (she?) would castigate trolls when s/he is a leader of the idiot fringe.

    So what policy specifically caused that? Could it be the housing market hit bottom so naturally it has gone up.


    I think we all agree there has ben some improvement. We can argue if it's been enough or sustainable.


    You had to get BOOOsh in there. You're helping to prove my point. That you can talk speifically about Obama's impact on you.
