The fool who made those stupid comments about Krugman obviously doesn't read him. Or he would know that Krugman has been highly critical of Obama since before the first stimulus bill.
The Obama administration would have been a hell of a lot better off if he'd appointed Krugman was sitting in a cabinet level position.
Ha Ha YOU LOST!!!

So what you're saying with all these "blocked" responses is that Obama made promises he knowingly couldn't keep because the things he promised (yes promised) required more than his authorization?
Your response is all lies as anyone with an internet connection can easily verify.
You are a complete nincompoop, an absolute moron who obviously doesn't know his butt from a hole in the ground.
NO! It would take someone to dumb to understand what a 'lie' is to make your absurd assertion. But I do get a kick out of your mental melt down and juvenile temper tantrum. Demonstrates again how severe cognitive dissonance causes irrational reactions.

itmo closing was fought at every turn by the repuiglicons and some Democrats in both houses and hate radio 24/7! It was a political defeat.

Same with getting rid of Dubya's tax-give-way. Personally I wish he'd let all of them expire, but that would have meant breaking the other 1/2 of that commitment.

The unemployment disaster was far worse than reports indicated when that statement was made. Documented: http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/state... -

This list remains 100% accurate:

1. Gitmo - Blocked!
2. Unemployment: based on figures before the full depth of Dubya's financial crash was known
3. financing - never promised!
4. 5 day review: He doesn't run either house of congress
5. Dubya's tax give-a-ways: Blocked so he compromised.
6. earmarks: You have him confused with Old Man McCain. No promise made: "Sen. John McCain, the Republican candidate, pledged to eliminate earmarks and "veto every earmark pork-barrel bill," and Obama, though stopping short of that, did pledge to get tough on them." http://www.po litif act.com/truth-o-me ter/statements/200 9/mar/02/john-boeh ner/spending-bill- wasnt-candidate-ob amas-type-boehner-

Cut your losses for the day and run for cover because there are too many lies for you to try to explain away with your magic excuses.

This guy is a Liberal flamethrower, as the old joke goes: those who can, do — and those who can’t, teach ... and those who can’t teach, teach economics. This guy should be a candidate for the Obama administration qualification “Never Ever Having a Real Job!”

Since you obviously trust politifact since you link to them, apparently you missed this page on their site:

39 and counting are the promises Hussein has broken so shut your pie hole placebo boy.
I didn't miss it. I'm on politifact's e-mail list. I disagree with a few of their ratings as being 'broken promises.' I'd call several of them "blocked" or "political failures" but those are not options. Some of those broken promises are just the result of political reality.

While I disagree with some of politifact's ratings and or conclusions on a wide variety of topics, I have never found any significant factual mistakes in the articles. The Milwaukee franchise seems like quite a weak sister though and has come really close to the line of lowering the standards.

Check 'Bakken' on google for more info on our vast oil supply that is untouched here in the U.S.A.
After you read this, keep in mind that the people in the Middle East are paying 25 cents a gallon of gasoline. And us stupid Americans are going to be paying $5.00 a gallon come the summer of this year. You tell me what's wrong with this picture.
The U. S. Geological Service issued a report in April 2008 that only scientists and oil men knew was coming, but man was it big. It was a revised report (hadn't been updated since 1995) on how much oil was in this area of the western 2/3 of North Dakota, western South Dakota, and extreme eastern Montana.
The Bakken is the largest domestic oil discovery since Alaska 's Prudhoe Bay , and has the potential to eliminate all American dependence on foreign oil. The Energy Information Administration (EIA) estimates it at 503 billion barrels. Even if just 10% of the oil is recoverable... at $107 a barrel, we're looking at a resource base worth more than $5...3 trillion.
"This sizable find is now the highest-producing onshore oil field found in the past 56 years," reports The Pittsburgh Post Gazette. It's a formation known as the Williston Basin , but is more commonly referred to as the 'Bakken.' It stretches from Northern Montana, through North Dakota and into Canada . For years, U. S. oil exploration has been considered a dead end. Even the 'Big Oil' companies gave up searching for major oil wells decades ago. However, a recent technological breakthrough has opened up the Bakken's massive reserves..... and we now have access of up to 500 billion barrels. And because this is light, sweet oil, those billions of barrels will cost Americans just $16 PER BARREL!
U.. S. Oil Discovery- Largest Reserve in the World
Stansberry Report Online - 4/20/2006
Hidden 1,000 feet beneath the surface of the Rocky Mountains lies the largest untapped oil reserve in the world. It is more than 2 TRILLION barrels. On August 8, 2005 President Bush mandated its extraction. In three and a half years of high oil prices none has been extracted. With this motherload of oil why are we still fighting over off-shore drilling?
James Bartis, lead researcher with the study says we've got more oil in this very compact area than the entire Middle East -more than 2 TRILLION barrels untapped. That's more than all the proven oil reserves of crude oil in the world today, reports The Denver Post.
By the way...this is all true. Check it out at the link below!!!
GOOGLE it, or follow this link. It will blow your mind.

U people r freakin' ridiculous. He has done more for this country so far than bush did in his whole 8 years in office. But ur too stupid to peel ur redumblican eyelids back and take notice. If obama didnt have a real birth certificate he wouldn't have been able to run for president. Redumblicans need to realize that it's their fault the country is the way it is. They're the ones who stop every damn bill trying to be passed to make the country better.

Let's change a couple of words and then you are spot on.

"He has done more to this country than any other President. In fact, he has done more to this country than every President in history combined."

We don't need any more hope and change.

Republicans are getting elected now because it has become clear that the Democrat's agenda is socialism, and most Americans don't like it.
Hope that answers your question.

I can not believe a number of things I read anf hear. Last time gas prices shot up, the liberals wanted to linch bush. Now, we are in a much longer time of elevated prices and the liberals are saying we just need to put up with this.

The sheep have spoken.

For me, it is time to start pumping our own oil. The drilling is already been done. Build some more coal power plants as well.
