Facts the left doesn't want to know about.

The average U.S. household income is down even further than it was when the recession ended.

From the left-leaning LA Times:

American households are earning 4.4% less, when adjusted for inflation, than they were when the economic recovery began four years ago.

"Almost every group is worse off than it was four years ago," said Gordon Green of Sentier Research. Demographic groups such as the middle-aged, part-time workers and women with children have suffered even worse than the average.

The one exception, Green noted, are households of people 65 to 74 years old.

"“I think what the Iranians understand is that the nuclear issue is a far larger issue for us than the chemical weapons issue, that the threat.&#8201;.&#8201; . against Israel, that a nuclear Iran poses, is much closer to our core interests,” Obama said.“My suspicion is that the Iranians recognize they shouldn’t draw a lesson that we haven’t struck [Syria] to think we won’t strike Iran.”"

Will somebody shut this guy up already! What's up with all this machismo talk from him all of a sudden?

Obama came from the core of Chicago corruption.
Obama ran unopposed in the 1998 primary election.
Obama ran unopposed in the 2002 primary election.
In the November 2002 general election, his GOP opponent, Jack Ryan, withdrew after his personal custody records were opened and published in the newspaper. Alan Keyes, Republican, took Ryan's place.
Keyes refused to congratulate Obama and explained it was meant to make a statement against "extending false congratulations to the triumph of what we have declared to be across the line."
Said Keyes, "I'm supposed to make a call that represents the congratulations toward the triumph of that which I believe ultimately stands for...a culture evil enough to destroy the very soul and heart of my country? I can't do this. And I will not make a false gesture."
The wrong black guy won.
After Alan Keyes lost, I recall reading a Chicago reporter's column in which he stated that Keyes lost because he was honest and that, further, any honest person that runs against Obama will always lose.

Bingo.

Yep.
People don't care. They just wanted a black president. Period.
You're right, they have no one to blame but themselves when taxes skyrocket and the military becomes downsized, leaving us vulnerable to attacks.
They are actually happy that they have put this country in danger.
over 5 years later and the nation is still here better than before.
