Obama, doing what he does best, creating poverty.
He doesn't do just by economic incompetence and neglect, but by his rhetoric that's changing the way society thinks, the entitlement mentality.
The American dream is changing from
"You can make of yourself what you wish by hard work"
to
"I don't have to work,I can get the government to provide for me"

He's still short on getting the rest of the country on food stamps but stands a real good chance if re-elected.

What do you think of that 18 billion dollar no-bid contract food stamp military entitlement Dick Cheney got? Oh, I guess entitlement has to do with social programs only and not defence.

If you really think that, then you seem to excel at stupidity and confusion, since my statements are the exact opposite of hypocrisy... I call 'em as I see 'em, always.

But I really think what you were attempting here was a lackluster try at misrepresenting me... better luck next time, pal.

Gary Johnson?

If that's the case then he's some sort of a winner after all if he keep the sleazy Romney team out of office.

Sleazy? How you getting that about Romney?

Like I said before, I was all for Obama four years ago but I'm going with Romney this time.

I know a lot of my liberal "rock star" type friends can name a list of great things Obama has apparently done over the last four years, but as I just posted elsewhere, the simple answer to the question "Are you better off than you were four years ago?" gets a simple answer from me.

"No."

Gary Johnson for President 2012.

The only person who can get the US economy moving again is Romney.
If Obama is reelected look for these food stamp numbers to skyrocket along with unemployment too.

Are you that delusional, brainwashed by Fox-News or something?

America has always has "poverty"... at least Obama cares enough that he's trying to ease the pain of the poorest Americans.

And, yes, many of the are allowed to vote, still.

He is on the ballot in 48 states but Colorado seems to be the state where he could actually keep romney out by drawing away approx. 3% of former republican voters. This one state could seperate present conditions to intolerable conditions with romney.

Stop the name-calling Will, I have always been respectful of your views and posts.
My statement was that Obama was creating poverty, MORE poverty.
As many of the link can show that economic conditions have worsened dramatically over the course of these four years and show no signs of improvement.
Obama plan is not to ease the pain of poverty but to keep people in poverty and increase the numbers of those in poverty.
The goal of any entitlement programs should be to help until help is no longer needed, not to create a way of life with the Federal government as its financial sponsor.

I apologize if I offended you, Jim... my point is that, while true things have gotten worse during the Obama years, which I know to be a personally observed fact, it is also a fact that Obama did NOT create the problem.

He just hasn't managed to control the pre-existing problems that George Bush and the Republicans created and left for him.

And since most of us understand it was the Republicans led by George Bush that created the problem, after the successes of the Clinton era, it doesn't seem like such a smart idea to let the Republicans back in charge so soon.

Okay, which two states is Gary Johnson not on?

I could look it up but I'm very pressed for time tonight... easier if you already know/
