    'A president who attacked Bush’s policies for favoring the rich has overseen a recovery in which the wealthiest 1 percent captured 93 percent of per-capita real income gains in 2010, according to an analysis of tax data by Emmanuel Saez, an economics professor at the University of California at Berkeley.

    On average, families in the top 1 percent saw their inflation-adjusted incomes rise by $105,637 that year from 2009, according to Saez.'

    Well now, taxing capital gains the same as my income would certainly take care of that.

    I do hope they say Obama lost
    Secretly, you know they will
    Which is why you so desperately try to make
    any economic news look good

    Indeed
    the chocolate ration went up to 25 grams per week

    Sure, Papa Obama has dragged this country so far
    down, where else is there to go
    But you know put lipstick on a pig,,,,,,


    Even Papa Obama can't run on his economic record
    Funny how that works....

    Perhaps then we could really move Forward
