Despite the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression and a series of shocks in its aftermath, the economy has gradually strengthened since mid-2009
Growth in the U.S. has outpaced that of other advanced economies affected by the global financial crisis.
State and local governments have been forced to cut deeply and shed jobs in response to fiscal challenges…
That would be due to the Tea Party and other assorted Republicans.
ALL HAIL OBAMA'S AMERICA!!! We are officially the best of the worst. Congrats Barney, your leader has done better at a proven failed governmental style than other nation. The problem is that it was Capitalism that made us far and away the most prosperous and most powerful nation in the world. Since Capitalism is what we Americans base our level of prosperity on, we are failing miserably. The "everyone's doing it" argument didn't work when we were teenagers trying to get our parents to let us do something we knew was wrong and it's not working for Obama as he's trying to sell it to the American people. It's only working on a select few who think people who earn alot of money are somehow evil if they don't spend their excess on things that those who think wealth is a bad thing believe is important. If I had the power to force you to spend your money supporting something you disagreed with, how do you think you would view how your money is spent, since it wouldn't be where you wanted to spend it?

The Syrian president stated that if we bombed his country they would retaliate along with his allies by bombing our embassies and other means of which we are all well aware including possibly bringing Saran gas into this country. Obama How could he not expect that his bombing would not bring havoc to us and our allies this president is going to bring about ww3.

That the white race is superior to people of color is the social contract conservatives have made with their supporters, and libertarians, Republicans, and teabaggers expand the supremacists reach by opposing issues such as healthcare for all, food assistance, social programs, and immigration reform because they tie them to rewarding people of color at the expense of the white race. It explains why poor white Americans who support Republican policies consistently vote against their own self-interests, and reveals the depth of hatred many white people harbor for people of color. In fact, despite his success and rise to the highest office in the land, President Obama has become the face of “the other” that besides being reviled as un-American is often accused of hating white people.

Is that really how you feel? Is your argument so shallow that it stops at color of skin? There is infinite statistics that completely makes your argument null and void yet you cling to the one thing that can't be quantified as a factor. It's completely cowardly for you or any other progressive, socialistic, liberal to go there. Do you have no shame? You don't have to answer that.

Rest assured that there is something else at play here besides Syria. Syria is the smoke screen that is covering up something else the Obama administration is doing. What that something is, I don't know but if you look at Syria, you will find that the amount of attention being given to the situation is far too great for the magnitude of it. Sadaam Hussein supposedly killed 5000 of his own citizens which led us into Iraq. That's nearly 4X's the amount of people killed in Syria yet the urgency Obama is giving Syria seems to be more than that given to Iraq. It doesn't make sense. The truth will come out and I am curious to see what was so important as to use this much of America's resources to cover it up.

I agree wholeheartedly. Presidents are known for bombing to deflect the real truth. But please. This can start a real war what with retaliation upon retaliation. Leave those people alone. They will never stop fighting with each other. It is not our battle.

When you can't tell your friend from your foe, it's time to pack up and leave. We have more than enough oil under our country to make us energy independent. The need to maintain cordial relationships with Middle Eastern countries that hate us but supply us oil is no longer needed. We need to take our troops and our money and go home so we can fix our own problems.

As I said, "Keep in mind this average was calculated at the end of president Obama's first term, it will be higher now.

President Obama was the only president on that list that had taken office after a recession as bad as the one that began in Dec. 07 under a Republican president.

Now that you brought it up, look at those numbers and the name beside them.

Who owns the majority of the higher growth numbers, the Democrats.
Would you like to look at some stock market history as well, that clearly proves the U.S. economy preforms better under Democrats.

You are the only racist idiot that continually brings up race.
Knock that race-baiting chip off of your hunched shoulders, and stop seeing skin color.
I can understand your confusion...as often as Obama lies and changes his story, combined with your need to be spoon-fed news instead of finding facts for yourself, and your robotic-like following, you simply aren't ever sure where you stand on anything.
When the going gets tough, Obama's crutch has always been race-baiting, and here you are like a baby bird in a nest, chewing and swallowing only what little your spoon-Fed mind can process.
Obama's lies have you turned upside down. Therefore, like a confused little bird that knows he can't fly on his own, you chirp what's been given you, and sit in your nest...never realizing what's actually happening in the big world around you.
For the vast majority, it's not race...it is Obama's lies, his inability to lead, his inept choices, and the consequences we are suffering at his incompetent 'leadership'.
You show your lack of intelligence often, but never more so than when you continually accuse everyone that you disagree with, as being racist! Basically every attack you use, is practically a verbatim quote to those interviewed on the nightly news! Your words are getting old...like you. They are the same catch words and phrases used by Obama, Kerry, Biden, and any White House staffer that likes to hear themselves talk.
You are just another puppet...saying what you've allowed yourself to be brainwashed to believe.
You are a laughable, programmed pawn, fighting for a cause that is detrimental to our country.
The more you defend your stance,the more you sound like the teacher from the Charlie Brown cartoons.(Except, of course, when you sound like Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson, with your racial accusations and pouty, whiney, finger-pointing posts.)
Stop being such a racist, Barney. Stop looking at the color of skin, and start looking at policy...but for the love of life...just stop.

So tell us, you sanctimonious Pollyanna, what are you doing for the down-trodden? How are you personally helping these that you are concerned for that you have mentioned in your post above?
How are you making a difference for those that want/need these programs you are worried about protecting?
Tell us, Pollyanna, what group of people have you recently pushed up your sleeves, jumped in with both feet, and are currently doing all you can in a hands-on manner, to champion their cause?
Tell us about all of your community service work that you must be directly involved with, since you yell at and judge everyone else so harshly for not being sympathetic to a cause.
Please, tell us all about it...as much as you bellow about our cold hearts, it will do us all good to hear about the selfless work you must be doing for those that are struggling.

Barney lies because he believes those that lie to him. He chooses to place his blind allegiance to liars, which has caused him to become a liar.
Barney never had credibility.
If, by chance, he might possibly have had a tiny bit...it was long before topix, and before the entire topix world had the misfortune of meeting him.
However, I truly believe that the 'little boy Barney' isn't sharp enough to pull off all the lies in the same purpouseful, deceitful and devious ways that Obama and his czar regieme lie.
I am pretty sure Barney believes these lies hook, line, and sinker. Therefore, when he is flapping his flapper, the lies that are rolling from him are the very things that have brainwashed his little mind, and he believes them.
You are right...he is amusing! However, sometimes it's in a sad, pitiful,'I'm embarrassed for him' sort of amusement...but amusing, nonetheless!

A Brilliant Prophecy From 93 Years Ago.



H.L. Mencken (born 1880 - died 1956) was a journalist, satirist, critic, and Democrat. He wrote this editorial while working for the Baltimore Evening Sun, which appeared in the July 26, 1920 edition.



"As democracy is perfected, the office of the President represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day, the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be occupied by a downright fool and complete narcissistic moron."

---H.L. Mencken, The Baltimore Evening Sun, July 26, 1920



So it was written and so it has come to pass.
