Really?

It's not the president's fault if people are too lazy to look for work.

Job Creation by the numbers under the last 6 presidencies:

Carter, 1 term; 10 million

Reagan, 2 terms; 16 million

G HW Bush, 1 term; 2 million

Clinton, 2 terms; 22.5 million

GW Bush, 2 terms; 3 million

Obama, 1 term; 5.2 million

It sure as hell is his fault when he and his extreme progressive string-pullers Pelosi, Reid, Boxer, Jarrett, Axelrod, Plouffe, etc are enabling the lazy, disincentivizing the hard-working and job-creators with government handouts, extended UE benefits, an explosion in numbers on Food Stamps,$1 Trillion in ObamaScare taxes, increased Payroll taxes - with more job-killing/work-disincentiviz ing taxes on the way ...

Obama "created" 5.2 million jobs... if you ignore the 4.3 million jobs lost.

So anything bad that happened DURING Obama's term is Bush's fault, anything good is because of him. Got it.

Check back with me when you grow up and realize that Bush being terrible doesn't mean that Obama is good. Do you know anything about the Patriot Act, the NDAA, Fast & Furious, Benghazi, what is really in the Affordable Care Act, the "green jobs" fiasco, or any real issue?

Sounds like Fox News gibberish.
You're upset the Republicans come up with lame candidates for president and then wonder why you lost.
Grow up and realize America doesn't vote crazy, they vote with common sense and Obama was the better choice, not Romney nor that contingent of weak, lame clowns that was trotted out to the country to chose from.

I didn't vote for Romney, McCain, or Bush. Try again.

I'm not a mindless partisan fool. I think for myself and realized long ago that BOTH major parties are exactly the same... and are both accomplishing nothing more than the destruction of the Constitution and freedom.

You wouldn't understand. You root for a political party as if it were a football team. You don't care what really happens... you just care who wins the PR battle.

Anyone who supports either one of those parties is paying absolutely no attention to what is really happening and is sound asleep in my opinion.

That is so true and I agree.

Not everyone is a follower. I voted for Gary Johnson. Would have preferred Ron Paul.

Ask Teddy, he knows I did not support Romney or Obama last fall.

I find it astounding that people don't understand why I do not support running guns into Mexico, taking away our right to due process (NDAA), a government cover-up of another gun-running operation in Benghazi that led to the death of 4 Americans, demonetization of the Constitution, etc...

You, by supporting Obama, support ALL of those things. Along with drone strikes that kill more kids than "terrorists."

Feel good about that?
yes

Obama is not the best person for the job. Neither was Romney.
The propaganda machine will tell you that the best person for the job is "crazy" because they don't support wars of aggression, financial collapse, and the end of the Constitution. Sheep like you (and your counterparts on the right) fall for it because you've been trained to subscribe to the false left/right paradigm.
You (and your counterparts) need to wake up. Do some research. It's not hard.
