gotta work on your analogies, bud...
how's it going, cantmakeitup?
Because he has carried over pretty much evey bad policy that his predecessor implemented.
You know, corporate bailouts, Afghanistan, Guantanamo, immigration "reform", selling or giving weapons to terrorists, expanding the patriot act, Not playing well with othere, the list goes on. Other than the D, he's not really much different than Bush in terms of his administration. How he can still be associated with democrats is a bit of a mystery but, wherever you go, there you are.

I'm doing ok. How about yourself? Enjoying the warm weather?

I don't know about you, but I haven't see any progressive anything anywhere that has benefited me. The rich still get richer and the middle class pays for all of the free stuff that the progressives give away.
We haven't had any progressives in office for quite some time. We can agree the rich are getting richer, taking everything they can from the middle class; those who work to earn it. I do see some (most) who claim to be progressives, or liberals, who simply cast their votes for the wealthy to continue to plunder the nation. Obama included. Keep in mind the republicans do the same thing, only they are a bit more honest about their attempts to take everything and give it to the wealthy 17 families. Neither party represents the middle class in the least.

After WW2 the middle class rose to prominence because they got a bigger portion of the fruit of their own labor. Large corporations were restricted from just taking everything. Those restrictions have been removed, and the middle class is being eliminated. In fact, the government has been working overtime to eliminate the middle class. Alan Greenspan for example said his top priority as head of the Federal reserve bank was to put the brakes on the economy whenever wages or benefits started to increase for workers. As a result, as the economy grew, the middle got nothing. Even worse, when there was downturns, the workers lost ground; thus for the past 30 to 40 years, the standard of living continues to drop.

Greenspan never said anything even close to that. Why do Libs have to make up stuff all the time?

His town hall was another opportunity to lie like a rug.

When one of the hand picked crowd asked a softball question Obama said "the guy wasn't a plant". For Christ's sake Obama the entire crowd was had picked by the White House.

Notice there was NO mention of the Medtronic move out of the USA and how much tax revenue would be lost. And not one hard ball question was offered to Obama.

Of course the crowd applauded and laughed at his comments. What a pathetic hunk of lying junk he is.

I did complain. Everytime a president goes on one of their stumping tours, it means he is not working. It also means he is piddling away millions of tax dollars unnecessarily. And as we know, Bush, Obama, it doesn't matter, they always speak to hand picked audiences who are already going to vote for the person being stumped, for. Not to mention the disruption it causes to the day to day operation of the city, county, state, etc.

Medtronic did not move out of MN..

they moved out of the US...what did MN have to do with their decision? they decided to be here in the first place because of the great state we have built. it is the onerous corporate tax laws our nation has that made them move their tax status offshore.

Obama handled a bunch of soft-ball questions by a pre-picked audience of 'tru believers!' Then went and spent the night with the Kaplans, who are responsible for getting Keith Ellison elected to prove they aren't anti-muslim jews.

Oh shoot I forget, Delta didn't move out of Minnesota either.

Medtronic was founded by someone who lived in Minnesota, it had nothing to do with them making a decision to start up in Minnesota.

Agreed the tax laws of the USA and Minnesota have caused them to rethink where to site their HQ, that would be out of Minnesota AND the USA. Their action to move was probably initiated by Obama's Affordable Care Act, you know where "you can keep your doctor". As it turns out the Medtronic move WILL cost Minnesotians their doctors and their jobs.

Can't beat that, the ACA causes people to lose their doctors AND their jobs.

As Joe Bite me said, "this is a BIG fu*&king deal".

You phhocking libertards are KILLING the USA!!!
