    Yes, the Bush Administration is still hurting Americans. You expected an instant recovery after we came a hairsbreadth from the Second Great Republican Depression?

    Not only that, but the Ryan-Romney plan for tax reform would increase the taxes on the middle class and lower them on the very wealthy.

    The Tea Party Republicans want to keep it that way by keeping everyone's money in the 1% bank accounts.

    The United States of Amnesia.

    Did we forget what happened in the last 8 years before Obama? Has anyone here read anything written on WHY the economic crash happened. It's not going to get solved overnight. And it would get solved a lot faster if the tea bagger house of reps would work with others.

    Same old tired canards, and blaming others.

    No, I didn't not expect the economy to recovery, we on the right predicted it would not recover quickly with what Obama was doing and we were right on.

    History has taught that the deeper the recession the bigger the recovery, until Obama.

    Besides it was Obama that predicted that the economy would bounce back with his massive spending. He said unemployment would not top 8 percent, he said that he would cut the deficit by 1/2 half. He didn't know what he was doing then and nothing has changed, time for real change.

    What exactly didn't Obama wanted that he didn't get? What more damage could he have done. All the left has is canards to keep repeating.

    Obama is a big fail after 3 1/2 years I would think everyone should know.
