Slow economic growth is the effects of the Bush recession & the inability for Congress to pass legislation to help thanks to obstructionist Republicans who still think (After 2012) that this will help them win more seats in 2014.
As for Food Stamps I love how you lying POSs add 2008 to Obama's tally.
Bush increased food stamp participation by a higher percentage & you never said squat.
The labor participation rate has bee dropping for a lot longer than Obama has been President & attributable to changes in demographics.
Bitch abut only 160K new jobs while you forgot Obama took office with a growing trend of monthly job losses in the 750K range.
Comparing this recession to the one under Reagan is beyond stupid.
The stimulus bill went a long way towards our recovery then anther tragedy struck out country. Republicans took the House & they decoded to just say no. No to more stimulus, no to more jobs. No to helping their own country. After voting yes yes yes to unfunded spending for 6 years under Bush , they decided that spending is the problem & its all Obama's fault.
Oh Davey! I'm going to Tweet you a picture of my Goliath, wink, wink.

I think all the years that Mom couldn't pay for the Internet were when the House and the Senate were controlled by Democrats (what was that now? 4 years or more). It was 2 years under Bush with Pelosi running the country into the ground with Rangel the Tax Cheat's help. And, I think the Senate has had a majority all along. So blaming the Republicans just won't wash, unlike those ball washers paid for by the Obama Stimulus.

"Trying to figure out exactly what the Republican Party stands for has been something I've pondered for quite a while..
If you listen to their rhetoric, the answer is easy. However, looking at reality, it completely contradicts nearly everything they say they support.
They don’t stand for freedom, as they continue to support legislation that denies basic freedoms for homosexuals, women and people who follow religions other than Christianity.
They don’t stand for small government, as they’ve recently supported constitutional amendments that define marriage and redefine what constitutes being an American citizen. Not to mention they were the party which orchestrated one of the most intrusive piece of legislation our nation has ever seen—the Patriot Act.
They don’t stand for a fiscally conservative government, especially considering there has yet to be a single Republican president since Eisenhower, who served from 1953-1961, who has balanced the budget. In fact, every Republican president since Eisenhower didn’t just increase our deficits— they set records for growth in our national debt.
They don’t stand for Christian values, because Jesus Christ stood for love, hope, compassion, acceptance, helping those less fortunate than ourselves, not judging others and forgiveness—traits which the Republican Party seems to strongly oppose.
They don’t support of our military, as Republican presidents have frequently sent our military into pointless wars where hundreds of thousands have been killed, or severely wounded to the point where they will suffer from these disabilities for the rest of their lives.
They don’t stand for constitutional values, as they frequently support violating those constitutionally-upheld laws which they disagree with."

The Bush tax cuts allowed the middle class to significantly increase their net worth over that 10-year period. The real "middle class", not the Obama middle class.

Obama's Nobel Peace Prize to be given to Snowden;Ex-CIA officer Edward Snowden's request for asylum in Russia prompted American politicians to issue a new set of statements. Republican Senator Lindsey Graham suggested boycotting the Olympic Games in Sochi. He urged his colleagues to send Russia the most unambiguous signal possible. According to the Senator, U.S. President Barack Obama should consider the possibility of the United States withdrawing from participation in the Olympics.

Graham's initiative, however, was not supported by his colleagues, even Senator John McCain. The latter believes that the United States can do much if Russia provides asylum to Snowden. At the same time, McCain does not think that last experience of withdrawal from the Olympics was positive, ITAR-TASS reported.

Tweet Print version Font Size Send to friend The U.S. boycotted the Olympics in Moscow in 1980, and the Soviet Union reciprocated in Los Angeles in 1984.

Senator Bob Corker of the Foreign Affairs Committee said that he did not want to exacerbate hostility in the relations between the U.S. and Russia.

Immediately after Snowden's arrival to the Sheremetyevo airport, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry mentioned possible "consequences" for Russia and China. At the time Kerry did not specify what these "consequences" might be.

Then it was reported that the U.S. president may abstain from visiting Russia for the G20 summit in September. However, these reports are consistently refuted at the official level.

It appears that the idea to &#8203;&#8203;"do much" if Snowden is granted asylum in Russia seems to be firmly lodged in the minds of the American politicians. However, it does not guarantee that this will really be done.

"No country can afford ignoring the statements from Washington for obvious reasons, especially Russia. But this is not because Russians are more dependent on the U.S. than others. This is because we are a great nuclear power and need to make responsible decisions,

Obama's Nobel Peace Prize to be given to Snowden I believe it is a direct blackmail by a known precedent. In 1980, it had to do with the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. Now the Americans are bogged down there, and not just in Afghanistan. So if there is a need to sabotage any activities, these would be the activities that occur in the United States and organized by the United States," he said.

"At this particular moment I believe that the Russian government should not give in to this blackmail, and then play it by ear," said Vitaly Tretyakov.

"I think that there are a lot more sober-minded people, and no one needs strained relations between Russia and the U.S. Russia is an extremely significant player in the international arena. Many issues are not solved without Russia and the United States needs to solve these issues. Syria is a great example that Russia's opinion is to be reckoned with. A confrontation will cause serious damage to the United States. Obama's behavior shows that he is not a supporter of the escalation of the conflict," political scientist Konstantin Simonov told Pravda.Ru.

He stressed that Russia takes a careful stance in this situation. "Russia has indicated that it is not going to make a long-lasting topic out of Snowden's case to show the U.S. off every week. Putin's statement was very careful: this situation is unpleasant for us, we did not invite him, he happened to be here. The President also stated that Russia's relationship with the U.S. was more important than squabbling of the special services," said the expert.

"There are reasonable people on both sides of the Atlantic, and they will push Russophobes to the back stage. Such hysteria will be reported by media once in a while, but there will be no boycotting of the Olympics, and Obama will not cancel his visit. The West, too, realizes that overly drastic steps will only worsen the situation, including for the Western countries," said Konstantin Simonov

President Obama hasn’t always been the great crusader for gay rights. It wasn’t that long ago when he was firmly against the idea of same-sex marriage.

But how quickly times change when someone has a hidden agenda.

“I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. I am not in favor of gay marriage,” said President Obama a few days before winning the election in 2008.

Obama, who is rumored to be bisexual, waited until he was re-elected to suddenly flip flop on the issue of gay marriage and LGBT rights.“I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. I am not in favor of gay marriage,” said President Obama a few days before winning the election in 2008.

Obama, who is rumored to be bisexual, waited until he was re-elected to suddenly flip flop on the issue of gay marriage and LGBT rights.

In a taped appearance on NBC’s “The Tonight Show” that aired Tuesday night, Obama defended gay rights in Russia, and all but admitted he canceled his planned meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin next week in protest of the Russian law banning gay propaganda.

Obama told Jay Leno he had “no patience for countries that try to treat gays and lesbians and transgendered persons in ways that intimidate them or are harmful to them.”

PRICELESS FROM A URBAN BLOG LOLOLOL URBAN Ha “This is what he gets upset about?” asked poster Davy Smith in a comment on the HuffingtonPost website.

“Not his countrymen who were killed in Benghazi, not the selling of U.S. weapons to drug cartels, not the IRS scandal that targeted his own citizens, not the gathering of info on the citizens of the “free” country that he is supposed to be the leader of, not the crushing deficit in his country, not the staggering number of his citizens that are jobless and/or on welfare, not the constitution that he swore to uphold…”

HuffPo poster olehippi added:

“Wouldn’t it be great if Obama had no patience for countries like America that can’t provide enough jobs for its workforce? Or what about no patience for black fathers in America who abandon the mothers of their children? And what about no patience for the thousands of black on black crimes that happen every day in America?”

From the Annals of White Crime: Pennsylvania Mass Shooter Rockne Newell is a White Male Domestic Terrorist. When Will White Folks Clean Up Their Own House?

A white man runs amok again. When will the white community have a serious conversation about the violence of its members? Where are the white Don Lemons and white media elites on Fox News and conservative talk radio showing leadership on the frightening trend that is white men committing acts of mass murder and violence in the United States?

White men are approximately 30 percent of the American public, but they account for 70 percent of mass shootings. The pathological mix that is gun culture and imperiled/aggrieved white masculinity is killing people--most of whom are white--yet, the white community looks the other way.

As my Right-wing friends are fond of saying, "what of personal responsibility?"

Of course, when white people commit politically motivated crimes there is no handwringing, introspection, or generalizations made about white folks in mass. As we saw in the aftermath of the Adam Lanza shooting spree, once more the freedom to be white is the freedom to be an individual and to have none of your negative actions reflect anything about the group to which you belong.

....Just as Bill O'Reilly and other white elites did in the aftermath of the Trayvon Martin murder case, where they decided to publicly scold black folks and their "bad culture", we need some black and brown leaders to lecture and truth-tell about the plague of white crime and white domestic terrorism that is imperiling the United States.

Of course, black folks do not have the media platform or authority to lecture white people about the pathological aspects of their culture, or to discuss the reality that is "white crime", as to do so would be "reverse racism" and unkind to the feelings of White America.

White privilege is killing white people. Yet, they choose to stand mute and silent.
