Between Obama's unemployment numbers and callous disregard for the economy you got to wonder where it will end. Hopefully, one and done for Obama.
Can we really afford 4 more years?
No we cannot, Obama is a terrible leader in all facets of the presidency.

"The Associated Press surveyed more than a dozen economists, think tanks and academics, both nonpartisan and those with known liberal or conservative leanings, and found a broad consensus: The official poverty rate will rise from 15.1 percent in 2010, climbing as high as 15.7 percent. Several predicted a more modest gain, but even a 0.1 percentage point increase would put poverty at the highest level since 1965."

Am I lying about this happening?

No, the "Frisbee" guy has come up with quite a few good points.

Y'all like to toss that "Troll" label around just a bit too much... as I know only too well... heh.

I thought we had finally begun to leave poor old George Bush out of this?

US poverty on track to rise to highest since 1960s, is anyone really surprised by this fact.
Obama has been completely inept when it concerns the economy, even some of his apologists admit he took a bad situation and made it worse.
We are not on the path to recovery with Obama as President.

I rarely find anyone who seems capable of discussing it intelligently and calmly... no offense, but intellect isn't exactly a Republican strong suit.

I've been writing about this for a few yars now, so rather than immediately repeat myself once again, since most Bush defenders tend to go away without responding once the facts begin to be exposed to daylight and modern times, here's mostly where it began, a run-down of what George Bush himself was left with, and the fact that he trashed all the progress made in the Clinton era.
Then we can take it from there:

https://groups.google.com/forum/... #!topic/alt.politics/DZqk6okjU D8

Exactly... that's how Obama came to be elected in the first place,
since in comparison with how Clinton left Bush and the way Bush
wrecked practically every bit of progress in eight years, the voters
decided they'd had enough of the Republican fiasco. Nobody, certainly
not Obama, ever claimed undoing the mess would be easy. Not at all...

Bush left a mess for the people who have to follow him to try to
fix... in this case, Obama. As a President George Bush was simply
inept, and he was too much of a stubborn dullard to think on his feet
and make changes in strategy when they were needed. "Mess" may not be
the proper word, maybe it is. I often notice these forgetful moments
when supporters of folks like Bush come up. I suppose I need to run
through a short reminder of how Bill Clinton left the situation (for
the popularly elected Al Gore, btw) and where things went during the
George Bush eight years...

1.) Economy: Good 2.) Wages: Up 3.)
Poverty: Down 4.) Unemployment: Down 5:) Housing: Up 6:) Crime: Down
7.) Stock Market: Up 8.) World: At Peace At the end of the Bush term
all the above eight points were pretty much at the opposite extreme...
Bush's "mess" does seem about right, after all. A fouled-up situation
like Bush left Obama will quite rightly take a number of years to set
right... and no one was under the delusion it would be an easy thing
to fix, the mess Bush made.-- Will Dockery 9-30-2011
