    They keep repeating the mantra that "it's turning around", as if there's any truth to it. But the reality is they are in denial and Americans know they are being BS'd by the media who will do and say anything to get Obama re-elected. Even Democrats who will be voting for Obama know they are being BS'd. At some point in time the media will realize it's a lost cause and throw the white towel in. Here is one of the results of the "change we can believe in" that Americans voted for in 2008:

    States, federal government reduce length of jobless benefits | The Lookout - Yahoo! News

    Hundreds of thousands of jobless Americans are losing their federal unemployment benefits earlier than they expected due to new rules passed in February that make it harder for states to qualify for extended jobless aid, the New York Times reports. At the height of the recession, Congress passed a law to boost unemployment assistance to up to 99 weeks: The unemployed would receive federal money instead of state funds if they continued to be jobless past the traditional period of six months. In February, Congress extended this law, but added rules that would draw down the number of weeks the government would pay for, based on whether a state's jobless rate had decreased and other factors. Now, only three states still offer 99 weeks of assistance, and all three will stop doing so in September.

    More than 5 million Americans have been out of work for more than six months, down from a high of more than 6 million two years ago. Supporters of extending benefits say they stimulate the economy and provide a crucial safety net for vulnerable workers, but those opposed say they discourage people from finding work.

    Meanwhile, some states, independently of the federal government, have made it more difficult for people to receive jobless benefits. The National Employment Law Project (NELP), a nonprofit that advocates for more support for unemployed people, filed suit against Florida, saying it wrongfully denied people jobless benefits. The group says only 15 percent of eligible people are receiving unemployment assistance in the state, the lowest rate in the nation. This is due in part to a new law passed last year that requires unemployed people to take an online "skills test" before qualifying to receive the roughly $275 per week in benefits, the Miami Herald reported. The state's unemployment rate has fallen to 8.7 percent from 10.6 percent a year ago.

    Let's face it.

    We have an Affirmative Action national media doing their best to prop up our Affirmative Action POTUS.


    Both fail.

    The writing is on the wall. Unless a major mistake by Romney or his campaign occur, I don't see any way possible that Obama will be reelected. In my opinion the media is actually hiding how bad the polls really are against Obama.

    This should not be a surprise to anyone. When was the last time mainstream media supported a non card carrying Democrat?

    So, when Obama was trying to extend UI benefits 2 years ago, it was the worst idea ever, and "proof" that Obama is a "Marxist".

    Now, when the extended benefits that Obama fought for are running out, it's Obama's fault that they're running out?

    Its funny because I was driving home listening to NPR repeat Romney's false premise that Obama has mishandled the economy. If the media was truthful, they would call Romney and the GOP out on this. Obama is adding 300,000 jobs and it would be 600,000 jobs a month if it weren't for the GOP like Boehner, Ryan and McConnell. Fact.

    And, the "liberal" media doesn't seem to want to point out that when Bush was still in office, Romney said the economy was fine. So did McCain. And at the time we were bleeding 700,000 jobs a month.

    I think you are judging Obama differently than you judge your horrible Presidents. And when Romney gets in, he will kill 700,000 jobs a month and you will say he is doing a heck of a job, right? Fucking liars.
