It's the ECONOMY and JOBS, not shark bites.

1. Gas prices escalating
2. food prices skyrocketing
3. dismal jobs outlook

Obama has failed to unite Americans. He divides.

No discussion of the economy and jobs. Just ancillary news STORIES to distract from the BAD Obama ECONOMY and the pathetic democrats whose programs and policies have FAILED Americans.

American voters sent a message to Obama and the democrats in 2010 and they DID NOT listen.

Time to REsend the message in NOvember.

What democrats have done to America is sinful.

With a name like Barack Husein Obama, you're making fun of Willard?

He'll be the 2nd President named Willard by the way .

Us NAvy owns the waters, when they put up a sign that says Sharks enter at own risk, they mean it. If your found in the US NAVY waters and they posted dont go in, soundwaves from sonar will disrupt the sharks to attack anything moving.

You were warned. Not your property

Nobody owns the waters off Cape Cod.

The Navy did not upset the sharks.

I was in Wisconsin two weeks ago,(Land O' Lakes, WI) missed you.
