Thousands of successful small businesses have been created under President Obama and the failing auto industry has been saved. How can anybody argue that the economy is getting worse?
The talk is very real and the numbers support it.

-two credit downgrades
-fewest eligible adults working since women entered the labor force in large numbers -assume like the 1950s
-devaluation of the dollar
-$4 gas as result of devalued dollar causing cost per barrel to increase
-16 trillion in deficits
-slowest recovery in 70 years

It is more than just unemployment. Decreasing salaries, no hope in site for an improving economy, upward spiraling deficits, pandering and encouraging dependency on government, health care,$4 a gallon gas and going up, more devaluation of the dollar which will keep gas and utilities high, two credit downgrades and many more.
We are standing on a fiscal cliff. Do we go Forward with Obama and fall off or do we do an abrupt U-turn? I hope those who are not victims and feel they are entitled to government hand outs see the reality.
It is all those things and a lack of leadership to boot.

I say we make that abrupt U-turn...on two wheels if we have to.

David Corn at Mother Jones has scored the scoop of the year, publishing a secretly recorded video of Mitt Romney telling Republican fat cats that 47% of Americans feel "entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it" and thus will vote for Barack Obama "no matter what." Memo to Romney: you can't insult half the country if you want to be elected president. Watch it at http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2012/09/s... . So, let's tally up Romney's record for insulting others, he insulted our closest ally Breat Britain at their London Olympics, he insulted the Israelis on his brief foreign policy tour(after he left that country), and now Romney the big fat zero is batting zero by insulting half of the U.S.A--3 Strikes ! that makes you Out! HaHa!

The Middle East is a volcano about to explode. The violence and protests are spreading into almost every Muslim nation.
They don't like us because perhaps we made a few mistakes in the past trying to keep the peace.
Guess we should be running in the streets protesting Germany and Japan.
The world might have two choices now - al Qaeda keeping the peace or America.
Maybe al Qaeda hasn't made any mistakes in the past.
And President Obama is doing a superb job keeping the violence OVER THERE!

Everybody has the right to their own opinions, even if they're wrong.
By the way,$4 gas is a bargain. Go buy gas in England or Sweden....or Turkey where it's $10 a gal. Considering inflation, gas is the same price it was in the late '70s. Tensions in the Middle East, the recent hurricanes, and decreases in production have caused the recent slight rise. President Obama has done a superb job keeping gas prices low.

Searched Real Times claims. Hmmm, not finding support for his claim. The President of that organization is elected and not appointed.
A search for his name shows that not much has been written about him since 2010 when he was a member of Faith Base committee who turned in recommendations two years ago without any response.
I've read that Joel Hunter is a King Obama supporter and that includes abortion - s-h-h-h....but only in private. One helluva Man-Of-The-Cloth, I'd say. Wouldn't you?

Sounds like you ignore the "still happening" foreclousures and the 0.05% interest you get at the bank. Haven't you noticed the price of everything has gone up or food comes in smaller packages today?

Do you know that the deficit has risen 50% in 4 years. Don't tell me you haven't noticed States unable to balance their budgets or the increasing number of caught corrupted Politicians across the Nation.

And yet because the stock market's New Bubble has recovered 37% is the reason there's no argument of things any worse off?

I'm thinkin it takes a few whacks with a 2X4 before you get it.

I'm thinkin...by your thinkin, that you either work as a Gov't employee with a PEW Union or your on welfare or other gov't freebie.
