Do your homework!
That was a Democratically controlled House and Senate that created those problems you are blaming Bush for.
The economy did well until the DemocRATS took over in 2007.
That is when the problem began.

Thanks to Obama, we will forever remain divided.
It is just a matter of time until it becomes official.

Why on earth would you have a petition for a recount?
First of all, the is no provision for one - the counts are done by the states.
Second of all, who on God's green earth would be the reason for a recount?
Are you unhappy that Obama won (despite the voter suppression of the Republicans)?
Or is there yet another conspiracy that the right wingers have dreamed up?
#125547 Nov 11, 2012
This explains why you have no common sense.
Glad you cleared that up for us.

West Gets Slight Bump In Recount, Still Loses « CBS Miami
FORT PIERCE (CBSMiami/AP) In the hotly contested Florida District 18 congressional race, a partial recount Sunday in St. Lucie County gave incumbent Allen West a slight bump, but not enough to warrant a full recount or end threats of a lawsuit from his campaign.
The recount revised downward the totals for both West and the unofficial winner in the race, Democrat Patrick Murphy. Because Murphy lost more votes in the recount than West, it was a net gain for the Republican incumbent, though his margin of loss remained just above the threshold to order a full recount.
Neither side left the supervisor of elections office happy.
Wests campaign objected to the three days of early-voting ballots that were recounted, the absence of a full recount of early votes and the countys refusal to turn over some other documentation requested.
There was a kangaroo court in Fort Pierce early today for Early Votes in the West/Murphy
Congressional race, said the West campaign in a statement. The promise of a recount of all 37,379 Early Votes was reneged on in favor of a revised recount of 16,275 Early Votes, the days the West camp did not take issue with. The disputed Early Voting Days ballots were not counted
The statement went on to say The chain of evidence was nonexistent. The ballots were stored in unsecured, unsealed, non-uniform boxes. They remained open to tampering by anyone with access to the Elections Office, including all of their employees.
St. Lucies revised numbers, combined with previously reported numbers for the districts two other counties, had Murphy with a 50.3 percent share of the ballots, an overall lead of 1,907 votes. That margin of six-tenths of a percentage point is just above the half-percentage point threshold to order a full recount.
They got what they wanted, they lost, said Sean Domnick, an attorney for Murphy.Its time to step aside and let Patrick Murphy do the business of the people.
Though not required, St. Lucie County agreed to the partial recount to settle concerns over the processing of some early votes, which election officials said was done out of an abundance of caution. Heather Young, an assistant county attorney, said all dates affected by an Election Night failure in loading memory cards were included in Sundays count.
Still, a protracted legal fight by West appeared more likely with each passing day.
The race was the countrys most expensive House contests and one of the most closely watched. The two sides had raised nearly $21 million as of Oct. 17, according to the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics, and Super PACs poured in about $6.6 million.
West, 51, is a first-term tea party favorite and one of only two black Republicans in the House. He has made a string of headline-grabbing statements, from calling a majority of congressional Democrats communists to saying President Barack Obama, Rep. Nancy Pelosi and others should get the hell out of the United States.
Murphy, 29, is a political newcomer who portrayed West as an extremist who has done little else in Washington than stoke partisan fires.

The GOP polling debacle
The reason: Across the partys campaigns, committees and super PACs, internal polling gave an overly optimistic read on the electorate. The Romney campaign entered the last week of the election convinced that Colorado, Florida and Virginia were all but won, that the race in Ohio was neck and neck and that the Republican nominee had a legitimate shot in Pennsylvania.
The National Republican Senatorial Committee consistently had a more upbeat assessment of races in North Dakota and Montana, among others, than their Democratic counterparts. One GOP poll even showed Indiana Senate candidate Richard Mourdock holding even with his opponent, even as public polls showed the embattled Republican hemorrhaging support. A Republican poll taken by Susquehanna Polling and Research showed Pennsylvania Senate candidate Tom Smith leading Democratic Sen. Bob Casey by 2 points a few weeks before the election; Casey won by 9 points.

Florida Guv Orders Review Of Voting Process
Gov. Rick Scott (R-FL) ordered a review of the voting process in his state Saturday after voters in some counties spent up to seven hours in line on Election Day to vote, CNN reports.
"We are glad that so many voters made their voices heard in this election, but as we go forward we must see improvements in our election process," Scott said in a statement. "I have asked Secretary of State Ken Detzner to review this general election and report on ways we can improve the process after all the races are certified.
The review will focus particularly on areas where the lines were long.
"As part of this evaluation, Secretary Detzner will meet with county election supervisors, who are elected or appointed to their position - especially those who ran elections in counties where voters experienced long lines of four hours or more," Scott said in the statement. "We need to make improvements for Florida voters and it is important to look at processes on the state and the county level. We will carefully review suggestions for bettering the voting process in our state."
The number of votes cast rose from 8.3 million in 2008 to 8.5 million in 2012 in Florida, according to CNN, while early voting was shortened from two weeks in 2008 to eight days this year.

President Barack Obama wins Florida, topping Romney in final electoral vote tally 332 to 206
President Barack Obama wins Florida, topping Romney in final electoral vote tally 332 to 206
Source: Washington Post
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. President Barack Obama was declared the winner of Floridas 29 electoral votes Saturday, ending a four-day count with a razor-thin margin that narrowly avoided an automatic recount that would have brought back memories of 2000.
No matter the outcome, Obama had already clinched re-election and now has 332 electoral votes to Romneys 206.
The Florida Secretary of States Office said that with almost 100 percent of the vote counted, Obama led Republican challenger Mitt Romney 50 percent to 49.1 percent, a difference of about 74,000 votes. That was over the half-percent margin where a computer recount would have been automatically ordered unless Romney had waived it.
There is a Nov. 16 deadline for overseas and military ballots, but under Florida law, recounts are based on Saturdays results. Only a handful of overseas and military ballots are believed to remain outstanding.

Soros may be the biggest political fat cat of all time.
How many times have we heard or read stories about Vice President Dick Cheney's old firm, Halliburton, and its alleged influence over the government? A public company with more than 100,000 employees, Halliburton had revenues of $13 billion in 2001. However, George Soros is a human Halliburton who will be in a position if John Kerry is elected president to pull the strings. He is reportedly worth $7.2 billion. But his role in buying the White House for John Kerry has received generally positive coverage.
Soros, we're told, is a "philanthropist" committed to "democracy." The Republican Party, by contrast, is supposed to be run by fat cats and Big Business, such as those at Halliburton.
