3 months? I dont think anyone with a thinking brain thought he was going to turn it around in 3 months, but 3 years? Oh Ya.
I know I didnt like the fact that he spent almost 2 full years on HC. And ended up bribing his own party to pass it. I thought more of the focus should have been on the economy. I still fault him for it and always will I imagine.
Just for the record Lawest they been taking every little upswing in the economy for the last 4 years and trying to convince us and themselves that things are turning. I hope they are getting better but I just cant see any reason that they would right now. I'm skeptical of a few points in the job market. I know in my area there have been some pretty big layoffs and we are expecting IBM to close down whats left of their operation here in a fewc months. The other thing to consider is temp hiring for the holidays, this could cause a temporary increase in job numbers also.
I find myself once again hoping I'm wrong about Obama, but when you got a POTUS weho hasnt had a budget plan in 4 years, and who seems to give a hoot less about a 16 trillion debt. its hard to think things will change in the next 4 years. Way to many uncertanties. Including OC and taxes.
Well I feel considerably more optimistic about it, and I'm sure that you'll join me in prayer that I am right.

Peace.

Perhaps we learned our lesson the first time...but frankly, given the mood on this and other threads, not to mention the real world, and the tone of many...ahm...'newscasts', I'm not so sure we did. I hear a great deal of talk about another one, including the very recent ridiculous offers to secede from the Union. Hasn't there been one from every State at this point?

To my mind, this isn't stuff to toss around lightly, my sense of humor notwithstanding. I'm in no hurry to go to actual war with members of my family, simply because we disagree in our politics.

And I issue a general apology to those who may have been offended by my 'pick your nose' comment.

Oh I get that KL. But the difference is (IMO) a highly emotional and heart wrenching issue, as opposed to pot shots off yer meter.

I try to stay out of these things as much as possible nowadays, because flaming just doesn't get the RESPECT it once had. Where's the fun in that? Plus I'm getting a lot more tired faster than I was a oouple years ago.

I'm pretty sure the secession stuff happens after every election. Theirs enough radicals on both sides to get threquired signatures. Nothing ever comes of it because cooler heads (and many many more of them) prevail.

No no no no. Only the Obama 2nd term enablers are the ones eligible
to be dining on crusty Crow.

If Romney had been installed instead of Obama, we'd ALL be feasting

Most politicians often flip not only to garner a vote, but to keep up with rapidly changing dynamics in the field.
The main thing is that Romney was the best choice to get this country turned around, get people back to work, restore consumer confidence, and set the economy back on the right track at a much faster pace.
Now UHC will kick in, the debt will climb further outta sight, and it'll be at least 2 years (midterm) b4 the folks realize their huge mistake and put enough R's on Capitol Hill to make barry the Chicago LAME DUCK he is.
Obama already turned the country around. What are you saying. Romney would turn the country back to days right after Bush trashed it? You are being illogical.

Nothing to joke about my friend, and as for prayer I've enough faith to believe that if many more prayer warriors inhabited this country things would be much better than they are now regardless of who the president may be,, America is or was the most Blessed country nation ever on this earth but like all other great empire's in history when it turned it's back on God's principals which made it great then as the Word warns..........God will turn from you and I think that the state of things makes that very apparent.

I also start see something different then before obama second election

it look like low income americans are going to prosper,
only loud cries against Obama goes from rich,republicans and oposers, but next obama 4 years are not going to be worse from middle class or below?
and that we have to count,raise country from the ashes,is to raise low class people,bums,help them to find job,or give them who deserve any walfare assistances

Yep.

But I'm basing my speculation on the outcome of the election.

Before the election, you weren't speculating. You were celebrating.

I'm sure you enjoyed it, but after the election you got your comeuppance.

And now, if you guys don't change your program, you're headed for extinction.

That's a prediction.

First of all, for posting a misleading title in order to farm replies, not cool dick weed.
Second, this is just liberal slander. Congratulations on looking at one or two parts of a single issue during his presidency. I do agree that there was a bunch of unnecessary action happening, but the big thing is that the people of the country wanted revenge. No one could comprehend how anyone possibly had the gall to challenge the mighty, arrogant US and its people. The country felt herself bleed and there are only two proper American responses to crisis:
1. Overreaction
2. Under reaction
We simply overreacted.

I gotta ask ya Lawest why is it necessary to always include 'inherited' when talking about Obama? Its been 4 years and he ran for reelection. Its HIS now. No more of this inherited bs. By the way Obama said if he doesnt have it fixed in 4 years he is a one termer. Was he lying? Did he or did he not believe he could turn it around in 4 years or was he just lying to get elected?
Jus curious what your thoughts are on it.
Actually, obama said in three years, not four... that's even worse.

Some people are always going to vote for Santa Claus, and could care less, like obama, about jobs, the economy, overspending, the deficit, or the national debt. They just want the "free stuff", even if it's not in the best interest of the USA.
If looking out for what's best for this country, and what made it great, causes conservativs to lose elections, so be it... then the country has already been lost.
That's the attitude I like.

Stick to your "principles." Give it away.

It will be our country to run.

Decline my azz. I've seen more people dropping out of the hunt for employment, driving the unemployment numbers down. Labor participation is at a 30 plus year low.

Soooooo rather than have a 2-party system (checks & balances) YOU'd actually prefer that YOUR "superior" party runs the country from now on?

Essentially that means you DON'T really care what's best for the US as long as YOUR "superior" party is in charge?

And that has been clearly shown in this last election (IMO). Of course majority wins the day. But just because Obama was chosen over Romney doesn't mean it was the right decision. Millions of us still believe that you Obama enablers have made a GI-NORMOUS mistake. But the one & only qualifier will be TIME!

Obviously this rookie-in-chief had a miserable 1st term. However, with nothing to lose now, I predict the 2nd term will be FAR worse, and on several fronts both foreign & domestic. By midterm, you suckers MAY have your ears down, and tails between yer legs.

But that also means that this country will be even far worse off than it is now. I don't plan to gloat. I just plan to make sure you jokers LEARN from your sorry-a$$ mistakes.

I don't know how anybody can be optimistic when the pResident wants to:

1) Double down on raising taxes from $800 billion to $1.6 trillion.

2) Wants to immediately increase spending.

3) Wants to usurp Congress' Constitutional budget authority by having the Whitehouse take over the authority to raise the debt limit ceiling.

4) Offers no spending cuts to current excessive spending.

Better get ready for the obama recession and more obama credit downgrades. I don't recommend making any large purchases.

Kathryn, I apologize. I have not had anyone get my goat in a long time, and Lawest doesn't deserve that reaction. He has told so many people they are going to hell for being pro-choice, I just lost it when he said well the ellection was nnot about abortion. Of course it wasn't, but well, never mind. It is not up to me to tell you of whom you should approve. The darling and the shovel (you remind me so much of the poster shovelhead but are not really like her) were uncalled for and I'll refrain no matter how emotional the subject.
BTW, I am pro-life, but I so understand the pro-choice stance. What I don't understand is someone condemning pro-choicers to hell and then saying it doesn't matter about the president.
