This is a republican state? Have you not talked to anybody today? I'm going to assume you won't be loving it 2-3 years from now. If you are, post again and let me know.

We are all at our jobs bitching, and actually being concerned about the future of our country. While you are sitting on your porch, smiling bc you aren't smart enough to realize that not only did you not help Obama win in any way, but it will get much worse before we can get the opportunity to make it better.

You must have been listening to Rush today. Your on the losing side and will keep losing. You lost seats in Congress and even in the Senate. It should have been a slam dunk to win the Senate but you LOST SEATS.

And you lost because real Americans do not want what you are peddling.

The #1 thing you have to dump is your total love of the .01% and start supporting the working class.

I'm part of the working class. My husband is union and we are republicans. We are republicans because we are Christians and we do not support the direction this country is going... You can't say all working class society are democrats bc we are examples that its possible and reasonable to be hard workers and vote republican.

Actually you're an important demographic for the Republican Party. Uneducated Whites are solidly Republican.

I don't understand why republicans try and use being Christian as a reason for not believing in human rights?
I am a small business owner and my husband is a union worker. He finally got back to work in the Auto industry and my business if finally picking up..thanks to Obama. and now I am hopeful that my children will allowed to get married someday. I have a strong relationship with Christ, but I could never use HIM as a reason for hatred against certain people or to take away a persons rights

no, it despite obama. Most recoveries happen within 2 years from time the recession ended. This recovery has still not happened.
proof:
WASHINGTON (AP)— The recession that ended three years ago this summer has been followed by the feeblest economic recovery since the Great Depression.

Since World War II, 10 U.S. recessions have been followed by a recovery that lasted at least three years. An Associated Press analysis shows that by just about any measure, the one that began in June 2009 is the weakest.
The AP compared nine economic recoveries since the end of World War II that lasted at least three years. A 10th recovery that ran from 1945 to 1948 was not included because the statistics from that period aren't comprehensive, although the available data show that hiring was robust. There were two short-lived recoveries — 24 months and 12 months — after the recessions of 1957-58 and 1980.

Here is a closer look at how the comeback from the Great Recession stacks up with the others:

—FEEBLE GROWTH

America's gross domestic product — the broadest measure of economic output — grew 6.8 percent from the April-June quarter of 2009 through the same quarter this year, the slowest in the first three years of a postwar recovery. GDP grew an average of 15.5 percent in the first three years of the eight other comebacks analyzed.

The engines that usually drive recoveries aren't firing this time.

Investment in housing, which grew an average of nearly 34 percent this far into previous postwar recoveries, is up just 8 percent since the April-June quarter of 2009.

—EXHAUSTED CONSUMERS

Consumer spending has grown just 6.5 percent since the recession ended, feeblest in a postwar recovery. In the first three years of previous recoveries, spending rose an average of nearly 14 percent.

It's no mystery why consumers are being frugal. Many have lost access to credit, which fueled their spending in the 2000s. Home equity has evaporated and credit cards have been canceled. Falling home prices have slashed home equity 49 percent, from $13.2 trillion in 2005 to $6.7 trillion early this year.

Others are spending less because they're paying down debt or saving more. Household debt peaked at 126 percent of after-tax income in mid-2007 and has fallen to 107 percent, according to Haver Analytics. The savings rate has risen from 1.1 percent of after-tax income in 2005 to 4.4 percent in June. Consumers have cut credit card debt by 14 percent — to $865 billion — since it peaked at over $1 trillion in December 2007.

"We were in a period in which we borrowed too much," says Carl Weinberg, chief economist at High Frequency Economics. "We are now deleveraging. That's a process that slows us down."

—THE JOBS HOLE

The economy shed a staggering 8.8 million jobs during and shortly after the recession. Since employment hit bottom, the economy has created just over 4 million jobs. So the new hiring has replaced 46 percent of the lost jobs, by far the worst performance since World War II. In the previous eight recoveries, the economy had regained more than 350 percent of the jobs lost, on average.

During the 1981-82 recession, the U.S. lost 2.8 million jobs. In the three years and one month after that recession ended, the economy added 9.8 million — replacing the 2.8 million and adding 7 million more.

Never before have so many Americans been unemployed for so long three years into a recovery. Nearly 5.2 million have been out of work for six months or more. The long-term unemployed account for 41 percent of the jobless; the highest mark in the other recoveries was 22 percent.

It is not about the election, it is about this country, and the failure of the economy. O(we)bama's policies have led directly to the worst recovery since the great Depression, and he wants to do more damage by raising taxes, spending trillions more, etc. Some group has to stand up to him, and do what is right for the country, even if the voters don't support them in the next election. I know as a O(we)bama supporter, it is all about saying and doing anything to win an election, but I am looking at doing what is best for the country, and pointing out once again what a failure O(we)bama has been, and will continue to be for the next 4 years if he continues what he has been advocating.

No, Obama's policies saved us from a depression. Most Americans understand that so the re-elected him.

the recession was over in 6 months, and the fix was in when they did the Bank Bailouts under Bush. All O(we)bama has done is oversee the worst recovery since the Depression. Facts are facts. Most voters were too stupid to understand the facts...just like you, and would rather vote for their entitlement to continue than do what is best for the country.

we will not get over trying to do what is best for the country, even though outnumbered by idiots like you and the other Lib voters, we will continue the fight until the country goes completely under because of the failed policies of O(we)bama and other Dims.
