Between Obama's unemployment numbers and callous disregard for the economy you got to wonder where it will end. Hopefully, one and done for Obama.
Can we really afford 4 more years?

It seems he job was just too big for Obama... can't say there's really any inspiration for giving the guy four more year to /maybe/ try and get it right.

Gary Johnson for President in 2012... a long shot but looks more and more the best man for the job.

If the poor always vote for democrats why would the democrats not want them to stay poor.

Amazing article. How anyone could still be behind this POTUS is unbelievable but they are out there, blaming Bush, blaming Congress, blaming cable news, blaming talk radio, etc...

I got a newsflash for you, Obama sucks as President.... not because he is black, not because he is a democrat, not because of anything his supporters or even he blames it on.

He is truly the worst president in modern times.

Unfortunately, that seems true. Obama truly sees clurless when it comes to economic matters.

I must admit, as has Bill Clinton, that Mitt Romney does have Obama outclassed when it comes to increasing wealth.. if only e, as a Republican, could be trusted.

We have seen that a democrat cannot be trusted either.
Such a paradox, perhaps we should not trust ANY politicians.

I've never seen such wrong propaganda and misinformation posted by one individual. If you're this desperate you must be quite worried like I was in 2004 when Bush got a second chance and America will never be the same.

Did you read the article? It was by non partisan groups studying poverty in the USA. I don't see you posting anything to refute what JP posted.

Get ready, Obama WILL get another 4 years because you republicans puked the worst diaster of all time on us from 2001-2008. Like a hornet sting most independents won't allow you to do this again. The painful sting of bush and cheney lasts a long time.

Or at least time to begin trying to build a valid third party,,as I wrote earlier, elsewhere... which is why I'm voting for Gary Johnson in November.

Interesting Gary Johnson write-up:

http://countrythinker.com/home/politics/votin...

"...Mitt Rom­ney did not run for reelec­tion [...] his polling num­bers were so bad he knew he didn’t have a chance at win­ning. Rom­ney... claims that he accom­plished most of the things he wanted to accom­plish and he didn’t want to become a career politi­cian."

"...Barack Obama [...] is respon­si­ble for what econ­o­mist Edward Lazear has iden­ti­fied as the worst eco­nomic recov­ery in his­tory. He is respon­si­ble for the largest bud­get deficits in human his­tory, and his Trea­sury Sec­re­tary has acknowl­edged that Team Obama has no plan what­so­ever as to how to deal with the prob­lem."

"...Mean­while, Gov­er­nor Gary John­son had two extremely suc­cess­ful terms as New Mexico’s chief exec­u­tive. He was reelected in a Democrat-&#8203;&#8203 ;dominated state even though he was rated the most fis­cally con­ser­v­a­tive Gov­er­nor at the time [...] The two major par­ties are wrong. You don’t have to pick between fail­ures. You can choose suc­cess instead, and in this case his name is Gary Johnson."

Just as I will never forget what this democrat Obama wrought upon this nation.
