I have been to Iraq and yes we should have been there and what the Goverment doesn't tell you is we are still there and always will be there in some form. But is it ok for Obama to triple the debt and cause millions to be getting laid off and company's have to close there doors. Is it fair for me to have to pay double for my family's health care so some lazy ass bum can sit on there but and get free health care. Not to mention the stock market falling like a rock because of his policies. He is heading us straight for a depression which doesn't matter to his supporters since most of them have been living off the Goverment cheese anyway. There is going to be two classes of people here and that is the rich and the poor the middle class is disappearing.

Wow. There are a lot of misconceptions in your post. I will respond to just one though. You claim the stock market dropped like a rock, which is partly true. What was the value of the stock market when he took office? Now compare it to now. I lied. The debt issue, is a real issue. Obama has created a lot. There is two things to keep in mind. One:Reports say that Obama did not create most of the debt. Two: Look up the GDP multiplier and perhaps then you will understand why he created the rest of the debt.

The dems always say that unless there is a republican in office then it is Katie bar the door. I have always said they need to do away with party affiliation. But Obama has not done anything for or to help this country in 4 years and he won't in the next 4 years either. Do you know why the United States has never been attacked on the ground, and why we have never fought a war here?

Huh. I was pretty sure the United States has fought a war on its own soil. The one that claimed the most casualties out of ALL of our wars. I would also beg to differ on the fact that Obama has not accomplished anything. Remember who Bush hunted for 8 years? Remember who killed him? I could make a list for you, but I would imagine you already know what is going to be on that list.
By the way, as established in other post- I am not a democrat. I lean democrat but I affiliate myself with the libertarians.

Republicans always ask what did Obama do in four years? Well....what did Bush do in eight years?

Stock market is at record levels. Corporate profits at historic highs. Obama's rate of spending is lowest in decades. Tax rates are lowest in decades.

Most things Teabaggers think they know are untrue.

I think this is part of the problem. Why not ask the op to provide sources rather than lashing out. It makes people less likely to take you seriously.

The OP has a long history of intellectual dishonesty. He won't provide reliable sources and hasn't in the past. He's sort of like a hemorrhoid.
He knows how to irritate somebodys ass all the time, but he flares up
worse from time to time.

In short, he's a troll.

They sure do. We could combine them all and call them the Ministry Of Truth in these Orwellian times.
