You are dumb!!!! You also do not understand what you read. I have posted numerous times about the lousy job Bush and the republicans did in cutting spending, cutting the debt. You are simply an ignorant troll, a non thinking, kiss nobama's ass parrot.

But you said I was wrong when I said Bush's & Republican performance is what gave he election to Obama in 2008.

Make up your mind.

Yes, having two parties that are virtually indistinguishable in action is such an improvement over a one-party system.

If 9/11 hadn't happened, if Clinton hadn't let Osama skate, if Democrats hadn't won Congress in '07, if, if, if. See how this works? The point is, Obama isn't as advertised, he isn't "The Great Black Hope". He's a dismal failure. He wasn't the only candidate available to you, he was the "Magic Negro". You weren't forced to vote for him, you chose to. Now, after it's abundantly clear he's a clownish fraud, you won't admit you made a bad choice. Your solution, holding true to form, ban all mulatto candidates.
You can't even admit it.

Bush's & the Republican's poor performance enabled Obama o win in 2008.

The economy is better since Obama became President.

I voted for Obama in 2008 because I was damn sure I wasn't voting in another GD loser Republican after they nearly killed this country. Only morons like you would still vote Republican.

OldRaider you do live in a delusional World!! The Congressional Budget Office's just-released economic forecast for 2013 is dispiriting, to say the least. The GDP is expected to grow by only 1.4%, the unemployment rate will "stay near" 8%, the deficit will reach $845 billion!!
Raider… The long-term unemployment rate is over 14%, and if the labor force was merely the same size today as it was the day Obama took office, today's unemployment rate would be closer to 11%!!
Assume you're right, what have you and the Republican party done to help these jobless people?
Besides blocking Obama's job program, reducing unemployment benefits, fighting health care for the poor and whining.
The delusional world you speak of is the one created for you by FOX and their number spinners.

If the Republicans hadn't given to the Democrats their Marxist equal-outcome subprime mortgage underwriting program in exchange for the Democrats supporting the war in Iraq, then the economy would not have collapsed and you clowns would have to find some other event to invent a system of propaganda lies about to use the so-called "mainstream media" to indoctrinate the population with.
There was no "equal outcome".

You are lying.

We pay for the disign and development and installation and implementation for you.

There you go again. Being unable to comprehend & resorting to more lies.

Free energy? Where?

The balance of trade isn't a reflection of government policies for the most part, dummy. What it means is, over the last 30-40 years the American consumer prefers products produced abroad over what our businesses produce. All those junky cars produced by GM in the mid to late 70s for example pushed U.S. buyers into BMWs, Honda and Nissan.

<quoted text>That's funny considering that Obama claimed that he would "create millions of jobs" by investing in new, alternative energy sources. Sadly, we've seen how investing in Solyndra worked out for the underclass laymen whose tax dollars funded the money he gave that company. I wonder how much Obama got out of that deal?
We're still waiting on those "millions" of new jobs to materialize from Obama's progressive ideas on wasting our money. If his idea of creating new jobs is by having the taxpayer pay to get them then we are all screwed. Maybe I should bribe Walmart to hire my neighbor?
Lying for Obama doesn't hide the fact that he's destroying this nation.
Other than reducing taxes on the wealthy and relying on trickle down economics, what great ideas has Obama ignored that have been offered from the right? Instead of regurgitating spin from FOX try taking a class in economics. Oh that's right, you conservatives believe education makes you a snob.

You should have stood behind Hillary. So why the hell did you vote for him in 2012?

We may be 99 feet underwater (even that's debatable) instead of 100, but going on 5 years later, I don't call that progress, I call that ineptitude.
