    Not sure what Obama could have done except tell China and the other countries that we want our factories back, and those 3-million manufacturing jobs. The manufacturing sector went from 28% of the economy to about 12%, plus all the ancillary jobs associated with factories.

    Wall Street need to be whacked with more than a piniatta-stick, I'd like Obama to use a baseball bat. Then the whiners whine about a few percent of income tax when unemployment is over 9%. Sorry, I feel no pity for the top income rates who move factories and then put their money in off-shore accounts.

    The FIRST thing Obama did was the stimulus bill that created or saved 3 million jobs, what exactly are all these people on both sides talking about when they say he should have focused on the economy? What do they think he should have done exactly? No more spending was going to pass, no more tax cuts were going to pass,

    what the fuck!!??

    Obamacare, cap and trade, etc. Tax and spend instead of creating a business friendly environment. And I don't mean corporations.

    Small business that supports other small businesses suffer when small business in general is suffering. There's your middle class. Remember, there are small business owners who live below the poverty line. They can also hire workers, but not in this economy. 2 stimulus bills passed over the last 2 (approximate) years and nothing but more suffering for small business. So tell me how Obama has saved our ass? Can you prove he saved 3 million jobs? I can prove that unemployment went up after his stimulus bills. (yes 2)

    Obama inherited an economy just coming out of recession and promptly drove it into the dirt.

    If you want to bring Western Civilization to a screeching halt put it in (P) for Progressive
