ImaginaryDave, you spend more time in Disneyland than Goofy does.
The Jerk-In-Chief has had at least a decade of accumulated lying but all were dismissed by the Liberal press. What WAS reported by those complacent bast*rds were concocted stories about Romney's supposed lying. His running-mate was a great choice considering how the Boy Messiah has screwed up America's finances for the next 10 generations.
Your opinions are nowhere near being factual.
Unless one considers your "opinions" to be lies. Then they are factually true.
Picking Paul Ryan gave Romney nothing. Ryan couldn't even carry Wisconsin.

Ryan tied Romney to the Bush Administration. Ryan was there voting yes yes yes to Bush policies.

Ryan tied Romney to Ryan's voucher plans for SS & Medicare

If Romney had picked anyone not in Congress, he could have run against DC. Instead, he had to waste time separating himself from his VP pick.

"My opinions are no whee near factual" - They are opinions,dipstick.

Oh, BTW, shove your racial slurs, pathetic racist f*ck.

The White House told us Benghazi was a spontaneous mob attack due to a Youtube video for two weeks and it is obvious it was a terrorist attack.
We now know they knew that straight away.

it was believed to be a terrorist group. without any verifiable info to back that up, no sane administration would promulate that information.

The worst recession in 80 years.

"worst"

Look up what that means.

It started in the 4th quarter of 2007. The Democrats took over Congress in Jan of 2007.

Please list thew legislation they passed & Bush signed that created this recession or STFU.

You pathetic losers can't even admit your party sucked under Bush. Hell, you even ran of the biggest Bush supporters - Paul Ryan, for VP.

Maybe since the Rs got their ass kicked, they will realize that obstructionism didn't work & actually help us recover.

The misleading information released following the Benghazi incident was a security issue. President Obama could not publicize his knowledge of the events and risk further endangering the lives of even more of our foreign diplomats. Had he blamed it on terrorists rather than the video, the situation at other Embassies would have only escalated. His decision to release deceptive information was a brilliant decision and probably saved the lives of scores of our foreign diplomats.

ABC News just reported that scores of intentionally mutilated dolphins are being found along the coast. Looks like Republicans have discovered another murderous "sport" besides hunting. It's interesting that last week it was reported that Romney is spending lots of time on his boat since he lost the election. Coincidence?

Experts are predicting $2 gas by the end of the year. Smart individuals who invested in Obama's high-mileage "green" cars will no longer have to figure fuel costs into their family budget.

Roosevelt's New Deal created the National Recovery Administration, a federal bureaucracy that limited competition in various industries by setting prices and wages above market levels. The ensuing upward pressure on the price of goods and unemployment may have turned a bad situation worse.

In addition to the harm done by the restrictions imposed by the NRA, the "soak the rich" rhetoric coming from the Roosevelt administration had a chilling effect on economic growth by making people fear for their property rights.

This uncertainty, along with a jump in the top federal income tax rate from 25 percent in 1931 to 79 percent in 1936, may have deterred investment.

...Again, deja vu all over again.

Roosevelt attacked the Republican President, Herbert Hoover, for overspending and raising taxes at the start of the Great Depression.

Although Hoover strongly believed the private sector would eventually solve its own problems without government intrusion, Hoover ended up raising tariffs, income taxes, estate taxes, corporate taxes, and even slapped a tax on all bank checks. The last tax seems to have severely curtailed economic growth.

Additionally, Hoover went after the New York Stock Exchange and Wall Street "fat cats." Hoover's tax increases and attack on Wall Street severely crippled the economy.

Ironically, Roosevelt expanded Hoover's tax increases and, like Hoover's policies, the New Deal failed to rescue the economy from the depression. One New Dealer later stated that the New Deal was begot by Hoover. Despite this, Hoover's reputation suffered while Roosevelt is considered a great president.

...Is it just me or does this sound all too familiar? Raising taxes and demonizing Wall Street in a weak economy? Also, Democrats getting credit on the Republican policies' coattails?

Of course, the Federal Reserve printing money and creating inflation is also to blame.

Deju vu...

What an ignorant assertion. You sound like this idiot named Devin that used to post on the 600,00 jobs (we never got) thread.

A Government Class moron like you doesn't understand that the president and government is of the people and are supposed to be accountable in a Democracy as the founders established.

Of course it's our business and one of the reasons we have three branches of government is for checks & balances so we will let the Congress do its job, idiot.

Hillary & Obama bungled that whole mess and tried (and are still trying) to cover it up. Dumb people like you are a big drain on this country. You are a drag, idiot.

How can you say that? With a low unemployment rate hovering around 7%, a record high stockmarket and record small business startups the economy is quite good. Even Republicans agree that the economy is doing so well that most Americans could easily afford a tax increase. That would go a long way towards reducing the deficit.
