Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

Yep. The Caped Boy Messiah, the Kenyan Hat-rack who can jump tall buildings in a single bound, the Communist Momma's Boy who can stop a speeding train, the American Media Hero who can shoot Stop Signs with a Skeet "Shotgun", the Harvard Wonder who doesn't know his Constitution from his Karl Marx's Manifesto......

grabbed that wayward American Economic Bull by the horns, tossed it onto his broad Stick-Man shoulders and wrestled it to the ground single-handedly!!!

Do you also believe in Big Time Wrestling, X-Men and Django?

being in the medical field doesn't sound like welfare to me, however even people who actually are on retirement or social security pay taxes like everyone else on nessesities and gas, not to count if they own a property , even though they normally get tax breaks on a particular property just by being disable.(Seniors and people with a disability) so yes sir, EVERYONE PAYS TAXES, one way or the other, some more than others but EVERYONE PAYS.

Lets take a look at just one aspect of your messiahs leadership:
How do we measure the size of the economy?
Typically there's a couple different ways to do it.
One is through nominal Gross Domestic Product (GDP).
GDP is Gross domestic product. For a region, the GDP is "the market value of all the goods and services producted by labor and property located in" the region, usually a country. It equals GNP minus the net inflow of labor and property incomes from abroad.
Government policies do directly affect the GDP in this country.
It's not convincing for Obama to suggest — as he routinely does — that he should be evaluated on the basis of whether the recovery has been better than the recession. Recoveries, by definition, are better than recessions.
So rather than holding Obama responsible for a recession he inherited, or praising him simply because that recession didn't continue perpetually, the fairest measure of his economic stewardship is this one:
How does the Obama recovery compare to other recoveries from similar downturns across the decades?
On that basis, the Obama recovery can only be graded as a tremendous failure — as it has produced the worst rate of economic growth of any recovery in the past 65 years.
Over that span, we've had 10 previous recessions and 10 previous recoveries. According to the federal government's own Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), average real (inflation-adjusted) GDP growth in the first three years after those recessions was 4.6%.
During the Obama recovery (which began three years ago, in July 2009), average real GDP growth has been just 2.2%— less than half the historical norm. Of the past 11 recoveries, the Obama recovery has been the worst.

First off this is an opinion piece and one that's not very comprehensive. The author totally leaves out the role that the GOP obstructionists in Congress played in blocking any legislation that would have led to actual job creation and consequently a more robust economy.

The wording was "no effective oversight" of the Democrats' Marxist equal-outcome subprime housing loan program, idiot.
After the Democrats received no effective oversight from the Republicans, the Democrats overwhelmingly supported the war in Iraq.
The economy collapsed after two years of oversight by the Democrats Dodd and Frank.
You can't run away from these facts, dufus.
What facts dumbass? You keep repeating the same allegation that the Democrats made some kind of deal with the GOP to support the Iraq War without even offering a shred of evidence.
Those toxic loans made by unregulated mortgage brokers and then bundled up and sold as mortgage backed securities were made when the Republicans held the reins in Congress. The market had started to implode in 2006 before the Democrats took the House and Senate.

Nice job. You state that the article is not comprehensive and then to prove your point you support your claim with a broken link.

How bout you explain how the Republicans obstructed the Democrats who held the majority for the first two years of Obamas office. They could have passed the budget on their votes alone.

You are incorrect. It stopped being our government 4 years ago when it was usurped by the current administration and the 47% of losers in this country.

The fact that you believe that the Founding Fathers put their lives on the line to support the "government" shows what an idiot you are. They fought and supported the country not the government you imbecile.

Yeah, sometimes links are broken but if you simply Google GOP Caucus Room meeting you'll get the facts on this.
Your assertion that the Democrats had enough votes to pass legislation on their own is a myth. They only had the requisite 60 votes for a short time. Mitch "Yertle the Turtle" McConnell was able to filibuster legislation in the Senate for the majority of Obama's first two years.

How bout giving us some proof other than a blatant liberal web rag reporting on the liar and chiefs own interpretation of what happened.

Federal law requires that each chamber of Congress introduce and pass a budget resolution every single year. Lest we forget, the Republican-controlled House of Representatives fulfilled their legal responsibilities for the past three years. By contrast, Senate Democrats -- presumably because they’re afraid to submit a budget plan that addresses out-of-control entitlement spending -- have shirked this responsibility for 1400 straight days. Instead, they’ve been on the offensive for years, blaming “Republican obstructionists” for their running failure, even though Republicans cannot legally filibuster budget proposals. In short, Democrats could easily pass a budget if they wanted to (they only need 51 total votes), but decided long ago that demonizing the opposition makes for better politics.

You idiots on the left are something. Just like the pass that Geightner got when he cheated on his taxes, you all believe that it was the fault of Turbo Tax. HAHAHA

Humans originally existed as members of small bands of nomadic hunters/gatherers. They lived on deer in the mountains during the summer and would go to the coast and live on fish and lobster in the winter.

The two most important events in all history were the invention of beer and the invention of the wheel. The wheel was invented to get man to the beer. These were the foundation of modern civilization and together were the catalyst for the splitting of humanity into two distinct subgroups: Liberals and Conservatives.

Once beer was discovered, it required grain and that was the beginning of agriculture. Neither the glass bottle nor aluminum can were invented yet, so while our early human were sitting around waiting for them to be invented, they just stayed close to the brewery. That's how villages were formed.

Some men spent their days tracking and killing animals to B-B-Q at night while they were drinking beer. This was the beginning of what is known as the Conservative movement.

Other men who were weaker and less skilled at hunting learned to live off the conservatives by showing up for the nightly B-B-Q's and doing the sewing, fetching and hair dressing. This was the beginning of the Liberal movement. Some of these liberal men eventually evolved into women. The rest became known as girliemen.

Some noteworthy liberal achievements include the domestication of cats, the invention of group therapy and group hugs and the concept of Democratic voting to decide how to divide the meat and beer that conservatives provided.

Over the years conservatives came to be symbolized by the largest, most powerful land animal on earth, the elephant. Liberals are symbolized by the jackass.

Modern liberals like imported beer (with lime added), but most prefer white wine or imported bottled water. They eat raw fish but like their beef well done. Sushi, tofu, and French food are standard liberal fare.

Another interesting revolutionary side note: most of their women have higher testosterone levels than their men. Most social workers, personal injury attorneys, journalists, home interior designers, dreamers in Hollywood and group therapists are liberals. Liberals invented the designated hitter rule because it wasn't fair to make the pitcher also bat.

Conservatives drink domestic beer. They eat red meat and still provide for their women. Conservatives are big-game hunters, rodeo cowboys, lumberjacks, construction workers, firemen, medical doctors, police officers, corporate executives, athletes, Marines, and generally anyone who works productively. Conservatives who own companies hire other conservatives who want to actually work for a living.

Liberals produce little or nothing. They like to govern the producers and decide what to do with the production. Liberals believe Europeans are more enlightened than Americans. That is why most of the liberals remained in Europe when conservatives were coming to America. They crept in after the Wild West was tamed and created a business of trying to get MORE for nothing.

LOL!!!!!Obama isn't bringing the economy forward. What the hell gave you that idea? How is putting this country deeper is debt than any president in history bringing the economy forward? The process of ending the war in Iraq was already in action before he even took office. I just love the way people like to sugarcoat him to give him credit he doesn't deserve.

The Republicans under Bush create the worst economy in 80 years, sending millions to the unemployment lines & cutting incomes forcing more people into the category of those not paying any federal income taxes.

And right whiners like you blame Obama.
