Obama in 4 years has increased spending ONLY 1.7%. ALL the rest has been caused by budget spending of the Bush years. No Budget has been passed to correct any of it because the Repubs keep adding amendments that are too stupid to be voted on.
The Bowles/Simpson Plan would have been great. But there was someone on the committee that voted against it. That vote prevented it from coming to a vote on the House floor. Wonder who that Dumbass could have been that stopped the BEST plan there has been to get America out of this mess. Oh, I know. It was PAUL RYAN that voted to stop a vote on it in the full House.
You Repubs are such hypocrites.

FauxNews has decided to run block for Mitt in the last days before election. Instead of any coverage on Mitt or that of Obama. They have done NOTHING but 24/7 coverage of Benghazi. Lies from them are being told each hour. Where were ALL you hypocritical bastards when Bush got 4000 American troops killed looking for WMDs that were never there?

With Sandy getting ready to hit the east coast instead of asking Mitt what he would do they cover something else due to this FACT.
The Romney campaign said early Monday morning that Romney stood behind a statement first made during a 2011 Republican debate, in which Romney said that the Federal Emergency Management Agency should be disbanded, and its powers either privatized or given to the states.

Obama's plan (Porkulus) was based on hiring more government employees and green energy boondoggles, both losing strategies.....

the economy sucks because there is no consumer demand....

most people, myself included, bought everything that they needed....so don't blame us for your failures....

The truth is, your party left office with a recession in full swing and the economy on the verge of collapse.
What makes you "sick" is that Obama is slowly bailing us out of the mess your side created
The truth is, your guy is a immature acting President that we have ever had in office. Proved it at the WH dinner party.
Truth is, if Obama wasn't hiding something, he wouldn't go to a lot of trouble running a kids film of his birth. No, he acted like a little kid trying to get another little kid (Trump) back. lol
The truth is, Obama wasn't qualified for the job.
The truth is, blacks voted not based on issues, and what he will do for this country as President. They voted to get their black Presidnet. This is true, because I heard some blacks say it when he won. The blacks said smartly to the white people when they walked pass them..WE GOT OUR BLACK PRESIDENT!!
Not.. Obama won yahoo, or I am so happy Obama won.

OK, YOU STILL BLAME BUSH, BUT YOUR GUY IS SPENDING A SHIT LOAD OF MONEY TOO,AND HAS DONE THINGS WRONG, BUT THAT IS OVERLOOKED BY YOU, WHY IS THAT?

sounds like a good idea...Pennsylvania has its own Emergency Management Agency....no need for FEMA....except to return some of our federal tax dollars after skimming off the top.....

Here you go again. Blaming Obama for the effects of the Bush generated recession.
Obama has improved the economy.
Why will you vote for Paul Ryan when you just admitted the recession is part his fault?
"real dumb"
I have already voted and I can assure you the vote was not for the lying loser now in office. president nobama has had 4 years, made numerous promises and has proven to be a failure.

LOL This said by a stupid leftwinger Demonbrat that the only true thing his side did in telling the truth is by giving themselves a picture of a Donkey as their symbol. Another word for a Donkey is a Jackass, and you people act just like one, and kick and stomp when truth is said about you or your side, or you don't get your way. LOL

I voted for Barack Obama in 2008. To understand why I’m switching, it helps to understand why I backed him four years ago. I am a Democrat, but vote as an independent. I see people, not parties, so Obama’s label played no role.
My choice involved a simple calculation. Would John McCain or Obama be more likely to forge a consensus on big issues? America was dangerously polarized, and unable to act in ways that even 60 percent of the public could support. History shows that paralysis leads to disaster.
The war on terror was falling out of favor, despite the continuing threat. Good ideas were getting thrown out with the bad and Republicans had squandered the chance to govern.
When the financial crisis hit, McCain stumbled. He wanted to postpone a debate and rushed back to Washington — but had nothing to say or do. Obama kept silent and followed the lead of congressional Democrats. While not exactly great statesmanship, he at least looked steady.
McCain, a genuine American hero, often revealed his maverick streak, his choice of Sarah Palin being Exhibit A. Despite doubts about her readiness, I found myself defending her against the vicious attacks from the left, especially by women.
McCain was my real problem. Mavericks make good whistleblowers and lousy CEOs. Upsetting the apple cart is not a qualification for the Oval Office.
Obama’s soaring rhetoric enticed me at first, and I got a jolt of Messiah Alert when he said his rise marked the moment “when the p....s us to Romney. A year ago, I thought he might be acceptable, maybe the only one in the GOP field. Now I see him as much more than acceptable.
During the long slog, Romney revealed qualities that could make him a very good president. There is not a hint of scandal in his life or career, and his economic policies could spark real growth in jobs, not in food stamps.
He keenly recognizes the danger of the growing debt. With Paul Ryan, he chose a youthful, smart No. 2 who possesses deep knowledge of the budget mess and yet an optimistic view of America’s future.
On the foreign stage, Romney is a novice, but his instincts about American power are right and his remarks in the last debate about Obama’s apology tour were a defining difference. It is impossible to imagine Romney going abroad to criticize his country, or lying about the murder of an ambassador. The challenger is right when he says Obama has made the nation less safe.
Romney is no “movement conservative,” but is moderate and prudent in the everyday ways of most Americans. As he proved in Massachusetts, he can work with Democrats to get things done.
As for being a Mormon, to hold that against Romney is pure bigotry. His election would knock down one more barrier to equality of opportunity.
Finally, there is temperament. Romney’s firm, steady demeanor during Obama’s rancid attempts at character assassination demonstrates the presidential character lacking in the incumbent.
That’s the change I want for my country.
What a rock. To sit there and not recognize Romney to be a liar - to say whatever to get elected is way beyong belief.

If you are this rational voter, you would see right through Mitt Romney.

Pointing out Romney's ever changing views on the issues is identifying his character.

Obamahad two choices, sit there & watch Romney tell lie adter lie or call him out.

You go ahead & vote for Romney. You basically admit that he is a liar. & yet you don't care?

If Mitt Romney worked so well with the Democrats why did he veto over 6 aspects of his healthcare plan????? Why did Democrats have to over ride his veto??? I thought they were so chummy?

Oh that's right. Romney told you he worked so well with Democrats & you just believed him.

You make shit up like lyin' Beck and Crazy Faux. Check out the Conscription laws going all the way back to the Civil War...one of my ancestors was in the Revolution, but I have my doubts about yours. Sons of prominent families like George Romney? You're wrong.'nuff said. Who's been fighting the Cheney/Bush debacles for the last ten years? Bushes and Romneys, no doubt? Ryan, of the Irish Mafia, has a sterling record in that respect as well. Poppycock!

The bottom line is that your side caused an economic catastrophe that nearly wrecked the country. Obama stabilized it and now he's getting us out of it, slow but sure.

The money? What were you expecting given the size of the impending trainwreck?

Did you think bailing out General Motors and AIG would be cheap? Not to mention state and city governments in dire straits. And millions of out of work being added to the unemployment rolls.

Your shreiks really echo the extent of the disaster the GOP left behind.
