Our beloved President is doing just as I predicted he would, for make no mistake about it, OBAMA IS AN ENEMY OF THE UNITED STATES!!! This is the only explanation of his actions since he took the job as President.
Since: Jan 11

Small business(500 employees or less) provided 66% of the jobs between 1993 and 2008 according to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
Yet look who has been bailed out time and again during these last 6 years of our Great Depression.
Corporate Facism has depleted the middle class of this country. States need to stand up to the Feds and tell them to go pound sand. Their ideas aren't working!
Take a look at the graph of the stock market from the 1930's. After the (real)second crash, it took 25 years, not until 1954 to return to its high point in 1929.
Those ideas above would contribute greatly as well.

You say the Feds' ideas aren't working. Ah but they are!! For under Obama, the plan is clear: Destroy the United States by destroying its economy!! That is Traitor Obama's very clear policy. Corporations do not deplete the middle class, for they depend on the middle class for their day-to-day operations.

You are talking nonsense elsie my dear. What would you do different if you were the bosslady? Just to quickly, how would you address the following (a challenge for anyone really):
--- What would you do about the skyrocketing medical costs of the country (Healthcare)?
--- What would you do to keep American jobs from moving to India and China and soon Africa (Employment)?
--- What would you do to resolve the legal/illegal immigration conflict (Immigration)?
--- What would you do about the turmoil in the middleast, africa and korea (foreign policy)?
--- What would you do to boost America's standing on education (Education)?
--- What would you do to address the growing problems of an aging population with no money to sustaina standard of living (Social Security)?
--- What would you do to address the poor of the USA and the world while you are at it (Welfare)?
--- What would you change in Washington (Government/Politics)?
--- What would you do about the impending energy crisis (Oil)?
--- What would you do to ensure national security superiority (Defense)?
--- What would you do to address the concerns of those in favor of gun control (Guns)?
--- What would you do to ensure freedom of choice?
We can go on and on, but instead of standing on the sideline saying that congress and the pres are killing the country, how would you fix the issues. Notice that I did not address the Economy in any of these. Maybe you can guess why.

Maobama and his cronies know not a thing about
running any business or what it takes to make
A bunch of pathetic losers in the White House -
once the FED pulls the rug watch out - something
like living on someone elses money until it
runs out then ....... shut the front door.

Questions for you. Why don't you refer to him as obama, the president or barry? Are you afraid of someone coming for you while you sleep? You would not be the first person to talk bad about the potus.
You do however talk a lot about how screwed up he is. Reference the list of questions that I posed to Elsie up above and tell us how you would do things differently, and voting for the republicans is not the alternative. Give specifics on what you would do. I'd ont support republicans or democrats, but I also don't agree with disagreeing with all points of view without offering up alternate solutions that are superior to those on the table. Pretending that problems don't exist does not work either.
As for the FED and spending, we will continue to borrow money from the American people as long as interest rates stay low. Ten yrs ago, we paid 5 percent, today we pay 2.5 percent for a much larger chunk of cash. In the end, the interest quantities paid (the bill) has not changed. As long as those rates continue to stay low, it won't matter if we go to 32Trillion, as long as the rate drops to 1.25 percent. The bill is the same. The only way to change this way of living is to make the interest rates shoot up to 10 percent, now you are in serious trouble.
It won't happen, too many people like living on credit. My advice to you is pay cash for everything you buy. If you need to pay it in payments, you don't need it.

Your right I should refer to him as POS Maobama - my bad!
From here on out he is POS Maobama - of course clownbots like
you are the ones that would determine that people like me are
a imminient threat to the progressive libtard movement and
target a drone on my grid coordinates and call anything aruond
it collateral damage.
No on the other side of the coin had President Bush declared that
he was going to do this all hello would have broken out among
you hypocrite libtards. Come on you know it's the truth but
fools like you rush your idol POS MAOBAMA and think that he is
all good and great.
POS MAOBAMA one bad arse mistake Amerika!

Y: "You're" not to be confused by "your". So, why Maobama? Are you really afraid they'll come for you at night while you sleep? The Maobama Gestapo? "My bad"? Really? How old are you 15? So, tell me where all the hatred stems from?

Y: tell me what a clownbot is. How did you come upon the genius conclusion that I am a liberal? I asked you to tell me what you would do differently. I'm a firm believer in a man making his own destiny with no govt intervention. That said, there are serious issues across the country. How would you in your "mr libertard" fix these problems. I saw your response, and frankly, the least educated in the country could provide better responses with specifics. "Mr libertard aka allapples" why don't you educate us on how much you really know. I wouldn't worry too much about your "grid coordinates". Fools like you aren't worth a drone strike. Btw, you sound like you've been watching the news too much. Learn some real things or simply shut your trap. You believe everything you see on TV. The republican party is so screwed that they are latching onto anything they can find. If you have any kind of brain, you know that drone strikes and taking out our own people has always been on the table.
Allapples: No on the other side of the coin had President Bush declared that he was going to do this all hello would have broken out among you hypocrite libtards.
Y: weapons of mass destruction? You remember the wars that we began and never found one wmd? Have you forgotten that? You talk about a big screw up, compare drone strikes to this and money/people we are on 2 planets. Name 10 things that potus bush did that put you in a better position than before he took office? Didn't all of our financial mess start right about that time? "Mr libertard"? You there?
Allapples: Come on you know it's the truth but
fools like you rush your idol POS MAOBAMA and think that he is all good and great.
Y: you must have missed the part where I said I do not support or believe in republicans or democrats and and that includes president obama. That being said, he is our cmmander in chief. So, I'm not sure where you are getting that I idolize this guy. He speaks well and has lots of dreams. Although, he's not doing wonderful things, let me share a little secret with you. He's figured out how to connect with the masses and understands that those are the people who will keep putting democrats in office. For the next 20 yrs, you will have no republicans in offfice, to include marco rubio. You know why? They don't relate to the people making 20K/yr like you. 80 percent of the population own 7 percent of the wealth, do the math genius. Politics is not a game of principles, it is a game of numbers. The idiot that thinks he'll get in without the masses is just that, an idiot. Allapples: POS MAOBAMA one bad arse mistake Amerika!
Y: why is he bad for the USA? You put him in office. I know what you are thinking, "no I didn't". Your party's inability to connect with the American people left the president in office. America as you refer to it is Canada, USA, Mexico and SA.
You spew a lot of poop and honestly, it stinks and reeks of lack of knowleedge and intelligence.
