The figure you give is incorrect. It was $270 billion and that's for only one fiscal year out of eight he was in office. By the time he left, he added over a trillion, thus doubling what all presidents before had cumulatively run up.
As for Obama, your side handed him both the deficits and the economic mess to deal with.

Romney's ad about Chrysler building Jeeps in China....
"A statement from Chrysler said the company “has no intention of shifting production of its Jeep models out of North America to China,” but is “simply reviewing the opportunities to return Jeep output to China for the world's largest auto market.”"

That's the fact. But maybe Romney got confused You know, he is the poster boy of out sourcing jobs in America. That's his plan start out sourcing our jobs. Someone needs to tell him he not president.

Muslims want to built mosque in U.K. for 10,000
followers. They create so much trouble in the country and say, wouldn't stop till they have muslim flag on Buckingham Palace. Modern muslims, my foot. Muslims don't want assimilate, they want to take over, like Ottoman Turks did to Balkan countries, for 500 yrs. of slavery to muslim Turks!

Getting shot down doesn't make you hero. Bravery in combat does. There's a difference.

Your doubts were well justified. Backed by millions of female voters across the country. Even the McCain team soon realized what a blunder they had made in selecting "Mama Grizzly".

McCain was independent for about one year after Bush took office. Likely a consequence of anger at the way the Bush team ran its campaign against him during the South Carolina primaries in 2000. Then he kow-towed faithfully the rest of Bush's two terms.
Given all the corruption in Washington, a true Maverick would be welcome. Unfortunately, McCain has really been an insider most of his career. Part of the problem, not the solution.
As for your inference that CEO qualities make good presidents, I suggest you take a lesson from both GW Bush and Herbert Hoover. Furthermore, it's not the role of government to produce a profit.

Which explains his ability to head off the worst economic disaster since the Great Depresson. Banks saved. General Motors and AIG bailed out. Unemployment halted at 10%. Now down to 8%.
Are you sure you're an "independent"?
:)
If you're not a brave person, you'll never become a Naval aviator. Try landing aboard an aircraft carrier at night in bad weather.
The Navy did a study of stress for its pilots. It found that the most stressful condition wasn't combat. It was landing on an aircraft carrier.
Now, let's talk about being a prisoner of war and being tortured, and being brave enough to stand up to that for about a decade.
You should stick to something you know something about when you talk out the hole in your ass, idiot.

Let's see...
Sarah Palin, high school beauty queen, actually got a degree from a university and wasn't a drop-out hanger-on like Obama's mother, married her high school boyfriend, raised a family while having a career, became governor of her state while taking care of her family, was nominated to be Vice President while taking care of her family... yup, kind of blows a hole in the keel of this "can't have a career and a family" bullshit, doesn't it? She picked a good man. That's the difference. The person she picked didn't knock her up and hit the bricks, like Obama's father did.

Politics is a ruthless game. Just ask the Democrats that plan these October surprises and have them blow up in their faces.

The economy collapsed because of the Democrats' Marxist subprime housing mortgage underwriting program, which when the Republicans gave the Democrats no effective oversight of it, the Democrats supported Bush and the war in Iraq... for a while.
The economy collapsed after 2 years of oversight by the Democrats.

You are a dupe... and not a very intelligent dupe at that.

Not to worry Carol. Voter apathy is going to kill Obama. He got out the vote last time, but it won't repeat. Many of the poor and young crowd may still support him, but will not show up to vote. His appeal is nowhere near 2008. My bet is that even the black panthers will not man the poles to intimidate this time around. Homer not withstanding of course.

Well, that explains the video of two "new" black panthers brandishing weapons in front of a polling place in Philadelphia.
Kind of like the video from Benghazi proves everyone in the administration is a liar, starting with Obama.

the boy is toast.....
When President Obama took office, our country faced the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression (thanks to George Bush.) Millions of jobs had been lost. Since then, we have had 31 straight months of private sector job growth ... despite the opposition by the Republican Congress. Obama saved the auto industry and millions of jobs. American manufacturing is adding jobs for the first time since the 1990s. Middle class families have seen their taxes cut and tax rates are the lowest in years. Mitt Romney's "plan" is the same one that got our country in trouble — more tax cuts for the wealthy and fewer rules for Wall Street. Who do you think wins from this plan? Yet, Romney wants us to trust him. He says, "I know how to create jobs — trust me." Remember, his former Bain Capital employees, tens of thousands now jobless, trusted him.
