Maybe where you are but not in most of California. Nobody wants to live in Temecula. Home sales are up in San Diego, San Francisco, Santa Barbara, and other places.

This is what DataQuick has to say:

"An estimated 36,468 new and resale houses and condos sold statewide last month (October). That was up 1.2 percent from 36,027 in September."

"Indicators of market distress continue to decline. Foreclosure activity remains well below year-ago and peak levels reached in the last five years. Financing with multiple mortgages is low, while down payment sizes are stable, DataQuick reported."

Obozo will soon deliver the same kind of leadership he's demonstrated with ObamaCare, Syryia and Benghazi. This time it'll be the Iranians pulling the wool over our little amateur's eyes. They want an A-bomb and he's just the kind of idiot to negotiate with to insure they get one.

You are spot on. Under the disaster president nobama is we see;
- More American's needing food stamps
- Fewer American's paying Federal income tax
- Household incomes down
The above equals more people in need and folks earning less. president nobama's Utopia, he wants as many as possible dependent on the government, guaranteed voters for democrats with their hands out.

So the president does this then rightwing blogs go ballistic and post the video of the president doing this and accuse him of omitting 'under God' from the speech.
I believe that is the definition of evil. You rightwingers are some sick puppies.
How about using the version that is carved in the wall of the Lincoln Memorial???

More than 100 million Americans have gotten free preventive care like mammograms and contraceptive care with no copays.  That’s all part of the law.  Because of you, millions of Americans will soon know the security of health care, in some cases for the first time, in states where governors have chosen to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act.  Arkansas has covered almost 14 percent of its uninsured already.  Think about that -- 14 percent of the uninsured in Arkansas are already covered just because of the work that you did.  Oregon has covered 10 percent of its uninsured already. (Applause.)  Got some Oregon folks in the house. (Laughter and applause.) 
And what’s been encouraging is you’ve got some conservative Republican governors who, in some cases, have put aside politics to do the same.  They recognize this is too good a deal for the people of our state for us to pass up even if it’s not convenient politics for us.  And I'm proud of them for doing that.  And I hope more will, too. (Applause.)  Because nobody deserves to be denied health care because of politics. (Applause.)
And because of you, the Affordable Care Act created new marketplaces where Americans without health care, and Americans who buy it on their own, can shop and buy quality private insurance plans.  Insurers in the marketplace can no longer use your medical history to charge you more.  If you’ve got a preexisting condition, they’ve got to take you.  Folks who’ve been sick have finally the same chance to buy quality, affordable health care as everybody else.  And that's happening because of you. 
A lot of folks are going to qualify for new tax credits that will immediately bring down the price even further.  For a young person who’s trying several jobs until they find that one that sticks, that means they’re going to be able to buy insurance that gives them the freedom to pursue the careers that they want without fear that an illness or an accident will derail their dreams.
And most of the young people in this country who don't have health insurance currently, they’re going to be able to get it for less than their cell phone bill, less than their cable bill.(Applause.)  That's happening because of you.
So it’s important sometimes to just step back and say, all that stuff is already happening.  A lot of it got underreported, kind of crept up on people.  And as we move forward, you’ve got to keep that in mind. 
Now, there have been some tough parts, let’s face it.  The truth of the matter is, is that while ultimately, healthcare.gov , the website, is going to be the easiest place to shop for and buy these new plans -- and it’s getting faster and more stable -- it’s not where it needs to be yet.  I’m not happy about it, as you might imagine. (Laughter.)  I'm not happy about it because I know that people need health care and this is the right place to get it. 
I know you’re not happy about it because as long as the website is not working the way it should, it makes it harder for you to help them get covered.  And that’s unacceptable and I'm taking responsibility to make sure that it gets fixed.  And it will be fixed.  We're working overtime to get it fixed. (Applause.)

When will you get it thru your thick skull nothing is free? Someone pays for those services/procedures you speak of.

Let's resume where Obama left off. Just because he's a dud, doesn't mean what he said doesn't still hold true. We can correct this mess for ourselves, if our "leaders" won't do it. Obama only said what we all wanted to hear. We can make it a reality. Hope and change. Tell the cynics to put a sock in it! And let's stop relying on a social hierarchy. We all have individual talents we can use to change the world. We don't need leaders and norm enforcers. We are free.

The Magic Negro has lost all credibility on the world stage. The Middle East is going its own way with Israel actually making backroom deals and cooperating with Arab States to contain Iran's nuclear wishes. The Magic Negro? He's playing footsie with the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda. Israel will surely keep playing the Public Relations game and praise their relationship with the Magic Negro, of course. But the Jewish nation knows full well that the Magic Negro is no longer a serious player but an irrelevant and arrogant bungler.

Saudi Arabia is now is engaging in talks with Russia and China because the Magic Negro is about as useless as tits on a Boar. They have vowed that they will go nuclear if Iran does. Iran sees the Magic Negro as a walking, talking political vacuum and if they can keep playing his violin ego, they will soon control the Middle East going into the future, especially with Libya and Syria on the sidelines.

Europe snickers at the Boy Messiah now. His Rock Star appearance in Berlin is an embarrassment they'd rather not remember.

The King of Kalifornia's strategy for recovery is more taxes, more regulation, and more government.

"Rolling Stone magazine just gushed that California governor Jerry Brown has brought the state back from the brink of double-digit unemployment, a $26 billion deficit and an accumulated ‘wall of debt’ topping $35 billion."

According to the State Budget Crisis Task Force report that was issued in January, the “wall of debt” is not $35 billion, but instead ranges from a minimum of $167 billion to a staggering $335 billion.
