Clinton to Bush:

- 24 million jobs created
- FULL employment
- On track to pay off national debt by 2010

Bush to Obama:

- ZERO net new jobs created. That's right ZERO.
- Fastest rising unemployment in 25 years.
- Worst financial disaster since the Great Depression ALL created by the great Wall Street bubble machine.
- Doubled the national debt.

Earth to Obama: The GOP is anti-American, anti-democracy and anti-employment for the middle class.

Their only purpose is to get back into power and resume the Wall Street bubble machine that TAXES and STEALS. They are delighted by the FreakshowFive of the Supreme Court who believe that a corporation is the same thing as a human being.

Someone get them a biology textbook!

Federal election campaign spending $5 billion
Goldman Sachs annual bonuses $17 billion
Corporate American annual profit $700 billion

Why bother to make a good product or service? Just BUY politicians outright....thanks to the idiots of the Supreme Court the most corrupt and anti-democratic bunch ever.

Americans elected an inexperienced politician to be POTUS. He is, beyond argument, a radical whose far-Left policies are not what Americans want. Voters in VA, NJ, and MA have rejected totally the radical teleprompter reader's spending, policies, and intent to "transform" the nation. We do not want what he's offering. Has he modified his approach, moved toward the center? Never! He stated that he is doubling down and will continue with the policies that were soundly rejected by voters. November 2010 will bring significant change to the Democratic Party that has been severely damaged by the "Prince of Fools" from Chicago.

The first mistake was electing someone that NEVER was in charge or any meaningful organization before.

There is a reason most presidents were governors or generals before they were elected.

Senators are never in charge of anything let alone a senator that was only in the senate for a year before deciding to run for the highest office.

That's what we were told when Bush was in there. It was unamerican to criticize him or his policies.

Bush had 8 years to screw us up and we are expecting Obama to save us in just 1??? Bush put us in the deficit, he put us to war, his love of big business caused the credit crisis..
I can only imagine what people would be saying if McCain would have been elected..

I am glad to see our President opening a can of whoopa$$ on members of government that are there to fulfill their own endeavors and not doing what is good and right for the country and their constituants. When earmarks must be made and given for support of a bill to be passed is just bull. They are just putting in more "pork" spending that we cant afford. Our leaders need to listen to us and our views. We don't just elect these people on merit, then giving them the devine right to make the decisions for us. Our needs and views often change as time goes on and as more information is found, thus our elected officials should stay in touch with us and us with them. We need to voice our opinions and needs to. If we do not speak out what will be said on our behalf? Accountability!
