This is what it took to fix the economy that was left him from the Republican party.

Obama is so concerned about the American economy that he can't wait to give away more tax dollars to foreign countries.

Good for you, Mademoiselle Fifi! You get to contribute overtime tax dollars to his "redistribution of wealth" program. Do you like the concept of providing welfare to the entire world?

No one knew. That is what the Republican party does to the economy. This isn't a guess, this is what happens when they are in control. The economy gets better when Democrats get contral and it gets worse when Republicans get control. Now maybe you are one of those rich people and that is not the people that I am talking about. I beleive as President Obama believes, that the country does well when the middle class does well. That is day & night compared to the Republican party. Just look, Romney wants to cut taxes by 20%, which gives 95% of the tax cut to the rich. No Brainer

Most capitalists do -- which is why there is a truism stating 'most businesses fail within the first year'.

If one can beat those odds, one soldiers on, and eventually ends up self-sufficient, even unto death and the skirting of tax law.

Even if Obama is re-elected, those of us who are not voting for Obama, should give ourselves a big pat on the back for standing up for what we believe in and for not voting for Obama.

Obama still refuses to answer for 4 Americans who were killed in benghazi. We have an ostrich for a President. Buries his head in the sand about everything.

When the Republican party left the country is such bad shape, this is what it takes to fix when Republicans make it that bad. I suggest you read about the great Depression and see how long it took to fix the problem. If you just think about it you will surmise how hard it is to get a economy going again. It isn't tax breaks to the rich because they would take it to somewhere that has less risk. It took the government to do it. They care about the country where business care about the dollar. It really is easy to understand. You just need to open your mind.

I would counter by saying that Romney hasn't answered any questions, about what he is proposing, in the last 3 weeks. If you don't understand that "Here is your sign"

(CBS News) The National Debt has now increased more during President Obama's three years and two months in office than it did during 8 years of the George W. Bush presidency.

The Debt rose $4.899 trillion during the two terms of the Bush presidency. It has now gone up $4.939 trillion since President Obama took office.

The latest posting from the Bureau of Public Debt at the Treasury Department shows the National Debt now stands at $15.566 trillion. It was $10.626 trillion on President Bush's last day in office, which coincided with President Obama's first day.

The National Debt also now exceeds 100% of the nation's Gross Domestic Product, the total value of goods and services.

Mr. Obama has been quick to blame his predecessor for the soaring Debt, saying Mr. Bush paid for two wars and a Medicare prescription drug program with borrowed funds.

If Mr. Obama wins re-election, and his budget projections prove accurate, the National Debt will top $20 trillion in 2016, the final year of his second term. That would mean the Debt increased by 87 percent, or $9.34 trillion, during his two terms.

I guess that what you don't understand is that the only enitity that could fix our economy is the government. Yes there is a high deficeit. I really would have wanted President Obama to become Presient after President Clinton where there was a surplus. Not what Bush left President Obama, a deficeit. Yes the country would have been in alot better condition if we would have not voted in a Republican after a Democrat had fixed things. President Obama is fixing the economy. Each day there are signs that it is getting better. All I can say is to those middle class voters that listened to people that talked them into voting for Bush and want to tell them who to vote for, now. They should ignor them. They are the ones that are bad for the middle class and the country.

And if Obama wins another 4 years, who is to say that the national debt wont go beyond 20 trillion? And what about the Biden factor? he would be in a position to run for President in 2016. Do you think Joe Biden can dig us out of 20 plus trillions dollars in debt? What about protecting our national security? he laughs at everything now as it is. Lies too just like Obama.

"Are You Kidding" is right. Any time Obama refuses to accept responsibility for his failures, an Obama troll blames Romney and the Republicans rather than just admit that he does not have the skills to dig us out financially. If someone else has the ability and the willingness to try, then step aside and let him try to help.

I think that as long as we don't get Republicans in there, the deficeit will go down. It will go down faster if we get less Republicans in Congress. Now I am going by recent history so what tea leave are you going buy.

I guess we will have to wait and see. Blaming Bush for Obama's failures doesn't help anyone. I hope you realize the amount of tax increases the middle class will deal with after the first of the year when Obama plans to end Bush's tax cuts and when Obamacare taxes kick in. And remember how many "rich" will go elsewhere due to the increase of taxes. 53% of Americans are currently paying taxes for 100%. That will decrease more and there will be fewer paying taxes than monies going out for entitlements. It soon catches up.

That is one reason the GOP's in Congress have not wanted to pass Obama's legislation. He is spending too much money. The GOP wants to reduce the deficit, not increase it. Go back and look through history. Dems have always spent more than Reps.
