Poll: Economy is election focus, yet half don't think the outcome will impact it

Jun 25, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Washington Post

WASHINGTON - When it comes to the economy, half of Americans in a new poll say it won't matter much whether Barack Obama or Mitt Romney wins - even though the presidential candidates have staked their chances on which would be better at fixing the economic mess.

Obama = President DOWNGRADE!



Bush couldn't even do that!




No More! It's time to admit that Obama was ALWAYS a bad choice and totally incompetent. Something Bill Clinton Warned you about since 2007 and repeated in 2012 by saying Obama was an "Incompetent Amateur that didn't know how to be president."

The Laughing Loon believes a pedophile Sandusky is a better man than the President of the United States of America.

I strongly disagree… President Obama winning re-election is essential to bringing this economy back from the Bush recession/depression – after being pulled from the edge of total collapse by President Obama… and in order for the economy to work for everyone as everyone pays their fair share and plays by the same rules – President Obama is the only one who can do this.
He saved the Auto Industry, reformed Health Care and single-handedly found and killed Osama bin Laden… that’s all the proof you need to know that he can get this economy going in his second term.
Since "don't ask, don't tell" has been repealed, I'll go ahead and ask:

Are you carrying Mr. Obama's love child?

Dear, you know that specious book has been dismissed and shot down by the White House and the Clintons. Bill Clinton’s spokesman Matt McKenna said the excerpts were “totally and completely false” and called Klein “a known liar.”

Keep repeating this fuxxed propaganda and President Clinton will continue to work towards President Obama being elected for a second term.

Dear, what in the comments were "refutable" and/or incorrect about RMoney? Do you think he is the best the republicants can throw at us?
I do not believe RMoney will be our next president - because it would be a disaster for our country.
??

Yes, Rmoney would be a disaster. However, that didn't stop bush from being in office for two terms. They don't really care how much of a disaster, as long as they get all the money.

Shot down by the white house, everything is either racist or shot down by the white house if it doesn't come out of Media Matters and approved by Soros.

Klein will sell millions of books, and has sold millions in the past yet not once has he been sued for libel. Why? Because his writings are the truth

“i hope we can change this!”

Obama may fairly be labeled ineffective in terms of improving the economy but Romney will completely destroy any chance the working person has of bettering himself.

Is there a parcel of America anywhere left that hasn't been privatized in sweetheart deals between corporate thieves and their politician shills?

In the old days they used to tar and feather the bastards.

I see the Supreme court upheld the ruling about Corporations raising money for candidates, much the same as the Big Unions do. The difference is Corporations ask for the donations, Union hold them over the workers head. It is O K, because they cannot go into the ballot box with you, and 40% of the Union members vote Republican.

Obama ineffective? Not so, he has single handedly created his own immigration laws, he more than doubled the national debt in only 3 years, he has protected Holder from fast & furious, he passed the largest federal program in history, obamacare, that will be unconstitutional., and under his leadership the country is more divided now than it has ever been. He has been very effective.

Obama is an antichrist being used by The Illuminati/Freemasons to usher in their New World Order and yes they used Bush too. STOP THE FREEMASONS!

Here are some of Obama´s failures.

Passing on the keystone pipeline.

Pulling out of Iraq with no clear victory over insurgent forces.

Putting all legislation on the Internet for five days before it comes to a vote.

Returning the bust of Churchill to the Brits.

Giving a collection of DVDs to the British PM.

Promising to close Gitmo — failing to do so.

Securing the Olympics for Chicago in 2016.

The midterm elections, which Obama himself called a shellacking.

Prediction that stimulus would ensure that unemployment doesn’t exceed 8%.

And the Annointed Won stil think he deserves another chance. Huh uh, we are desperate for leadrship. It isn't just Obama that is not up to the job, There's Napolatano, Holder, and while Hillary might make a good President with Bill standing behind her, she is a terrible Secretary of State. She has helped the Muslim President give most of the middle East to the Muslim Brotherhood. Send all of them packing.

Anyone that thinks representatives of either party are going to help average americans is dreaming. Most politicians today are in constant re election mode with little time for affairs of state. Thanks to extremist activist judges on the supreme court corporations and billionaires can now purchase our government and people are actually dumb enough to go for it! At one time the Democratic party actually represented the interests of working but thanks to republicrat clinton and his dlc buddies the dems are no different than the rethugs!

Dearie, there is nothing "racist" about an out and out lie which has been used to sell a garbage book and has been refuted, repudiated or whatever other word you want to use.

Keep repeating the lie and President Clinton will continue to work for President's Obama's re election.

You people hilarious.

Even Presdent Clinton cannot get the current President reelected. He is a disater waiting to happen. What an arrogant little man. Today Obama is threatening the Supreme Court. Does he not know they are equal to him? This Constitutional law fraud thinks he is a King or something. That will make his defeat even sweeter. This county deserves better.
