Barack Obama, our next President

The Bush economy built on debt & on the house of cards in real estate & mortgage securities that led to the worst recession in 80 years?

A Bush economy that took us from a balanced budget & on the road to paying off our debt to the doubling the debt.

Maybe in your right whiner la la land that is a good economy but not in reality.

The financial crisis and resulting recession brought record-breaking declines in state revenues; the primary response to the hole blown in state budgets was deep cuts in education, health, human services, and other areas. Cuts of this magnitude are job killers. They directly eliminate jobs in both the private and public sectors, and indirectly cost additional jobs by reducing consumer buying power. In these ways, excessively large spending cuts make recessions deeper and longer than they would be otherwise.

Here’s how the economic damage from spending cuts happens: when lawmakers cut services they end contracts with private sector businesses and reduce spending on private sector goods, leading to layoffs or lower wages among private sector workers. When lawmakers cut services they also lay off teachers, firefighters, police officers, and other public sector workers (over 650,000 state and local government workers have lost their jobs since the recession hit the states). In turn, private AND public sector workers who are laid off, or who see their pay reduced, buy less and further reduce economic activity.

Deep cuts to state services also erode the foundations of a strong economy, in both the short and long term. Spending on education, transportation, and public safety has been shown to stimulate economic growth in the short run and is among the most important determinants of economic growth and job quality in the long run. Research also shows that expanding and improving upon these investments through well-targeted tax increases (in other words, finding new money to pay for better services) stimulates income and job growth.

Thankfully, the people themselves are making their voices heard. A recent example is in Rhode Island where the Governor had to back down from calling the state Christmas Tree and Holiday Tree when the people of Rhode Island made it clear they weren't going to stand for it.
Good for those people to speak up, we have all sat back and played dead, it's time for all to stand up for our rights.

Former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich argued on NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday that if Hillary Clinton runs for president in 2016, today's GOP would be outmatched.

"If their competitor in '16 is going to be Hillary Clinton, supported by Bill Clinton and presumably a still-relatively popular President Barack Obama, trying to win that will be truly the Super Bowl," Gingrich said. "And the Republican Party today is incapable of competing at that level."

Good news for Americans alas sad for tea party
The US added 146,000 jobs in November, official data shows, as the economy seemingly shrugged off storm Sandy.
The unexpectedly strong performance brought the unemployment rate down to
a four-year low of 7.7% of the workforce.
The jobs figure was well above most analysts' expectations and continued a recent surge that begun in July.
Weekly jobs claims registered a sharp but short-lived jump in the number claiming benefits in the states ravaged by the storm last month.

Government at all levels must reduce spending to meet available revenues. Unfortunately, government tends to cut in all the wrong places.

In addition, government pensions are a time bomb that will explode on future generations, a prime reason for contracting out as many services as possible.

Perhaps, in tough times, government employees should consent to pay freezes and/or pay cuts to maintain employment levels, regardless of any contracts.

Just like those in the private sector.

Hillary Clinton was conceded the Democrat nomination for 2008 in advance, but that didn't happen.

If she has a black or Hispanic opponent for the 2016 nomination, she may have trouble again.

Wrong moron! The US doesn't even come close to having the best healthcare system in the world.
www.businessinsider.com/best-healthcare-syste... ...
Accessibility is a major component of an effective health care system and for years for profit insurance companies have limited that access. Obamacare opens access to those previously denied coverage and prevents private insurance from making profits by denying and limiting care.
The fiscal cliff along with defense cuts is a situation forced by the GOP. Obama is on record opposing those cuts.
You're a goddamned liar.

Romney ran no negative ads stupid? Not only were his ads negative they were laced with lies like claiming the President gutted the work requirement for welfare.
Obama won because the majority of the American people rejected the nihilistic slash and burn policies of the Romney/Ryan ticket that would have further enriched the already wealthy on the backs of the middle class and the poor.
