All you stupid right wingers have everything bass ackwards! It was you guys who elected and reelected Bush and Cheney and they are the ones that totally destroyed the US ecocnomy. If you don't think that things have improved greatly since Obama was sworn in, you have lost touch with reality! Now I didn't insinuate that things were back to where they were when that other Democrat, Bill Clinton was in office, but there has definitely been a big improvement!
Please indicate what areas/sectors in our economy that have "Greatly" improved or any areas that have improved at all under this administration. Also during the Bush years he walked into a recession and we were out in 16 months. Also the recession that we are currently in started in 2008 the 6.5 years prior we were booming.

In 8 years Bush spent 4.5 Trill and in less then 4 years Obama has spent more then 6.5 Trillion. We all know where Bush spent the money (War and national defence). Where is the money from Obamas 6.5 Trillion? I can't wait to hear your answer.

Trust me INS, you won't get a response. These sheeple never do, but I can guarantee that the money wasn't spent to benifit us or this country. This Great Pretender and all who support him are a joke.

Here are the facts that I know you will not accept since it is obvious that you accept the FOX propaganda as fact!
----------

Federal spending is lower now than it was when President Obama took office. I’ll pause to let you absorb the news.

In January 2009, before President Obama had even taken the oath of office, annual spending was set to total 24.9 percent of gross domestic product. Total spending this year, fiscal year 2012, is expected to top out at 23.4 percent of GDP.

Here’s another interesting fact. Taxes today are lower than they were on inauguration day 2009. Back in January 2009, the CBO projected that total federal tax revenue that year would amount to 16.5 percent of GDP. This year? 15.8 percent.

One last nugget. The deficit this year is going to be lower than what it was on the day President Obama took office. Back then, the CBO said the 2009 deficit would be 8.3 percent of GDP. This year’s deficit is expected to come in at 7.6 percent
The fact is that Obama inherited a disaster of a federal budget. Eight years prior, when President George W. Bush took the oath of office, there was a $281 billion surplus. By the time Obama was sworn in, he was facing a $1.2 trillion deficit. Inconvenient though it may be for conservatives (especially those who are running for president), the truth is that spending, taxes and the deficit are all lower today than when President Obama took office.

Here is where you got your information along with your “I’ll let you absorb the news”.This is what I call liberal trash he not only copied and pasted from a disreputable source but he also wasn’t smart enough to come up with his own insult.

Perhaps you should fact check before you post a bunch of lies that even Democrats don’t believe.
Try readying this from Fact Check.org which referred me to these articles.

Your right, you know Obama HAS to be ashamed of himself. I bet if he gets reelected he will really think he can pull the wool over our heads all just because we were stupid enough to vote him back in. I can just see him and the First Lady (I really don't think its a lady) laying in bed at night laughing at the American people. Iam sure they think he could sell his supporters tickets to the Titantic,and Iam sure he could.

Budget. Spending. Blah. Blah. Blah. They are SPENDING more than what is coming in no matter what way you slice it. Republicans, democrats, the whole lot. Every American who works, pays their bills, electric, water, gas, phone, groceries, etc knows that you can't spend more than you have coming in. BECAUSE before long you go bankrupt. That's where the US is now - BANKRUPT!!!! People still standing with their hands out. Get out of the house and get a real job and quit trolling on topix.

Get out and begin looking. Do you think life is going to "spoon feed" you a job? The world doesn't owe you a living. You have to get motivated, get out, and find it on your own.

DEPRESSED

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel, "Pick up your shovels, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land."

Nearly 75 years ago,(when Welfare was introduced) Roosevelt said, "Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a Camel, this is the Promised Land."

Today, Congress has stolen your shovel, taxed your asses, raised the price of Camels, and mortgaged the Promised Land!

I was so depressed last night thinking about health care plans, the economy, the wars, lost jobs, savings, Social Security, retirement funds, etc., I called a suicide hotline. I had to press 1 for English, I was connected to a call center in Pakistan. I told them I was suicidal. They got excited and asked if I could drive a truck...

Folks, we're screwed...

This is nuts. When Obama was inaugurated, the economy was shedding 750,000 jobs a month, due to a financial crisis caused by greed and deregulation. After years of slow but steady growth, repukes think he's to blame for unemployment and the spending that kept us from falling off a cliff? Even Sean Hannity knows better than that. Turn him off and think, meatheads.
Hey Meathead,
Maybe you should read other sources because you don't have a very clear idea about what is happening
to our USA. We are now in debt to the tune of over 16 TRILLION, unemployment is higher than it
was during the depression, small businesses are not growing, the government is becoming bigger and bigger, food stamps are up 75%, and the most despicable thing of all with 4 Americans murdered in Libya because of a planned terrorist attack our President is still spinning a story about some obscure film that no one in Libya ever saw or heard of until our Mainstream Media starting reporting it. He can not and will not admit that the war on terror is not over, and he did not protect our personnel in foreign lands. So instead of calling people names why don't you look into different information sites, other than the mainstream media because they couldn't report the truth if it jumped up and bit them. Obama is their man and they will go to any lengths to protect him. And
none and I mean none of this happened on President Bush's watch! And by the way Osama is dead
but GM is not doing well.
