Obama's record on jobs is the worst of ANY president in the last 80 years.
This just shows the depth of partisanship in America. Obama is a dismal failure as president yet still garners support just because of his party.
And people wonder how the nazis took power in Germany.
I agree 100%, did you know that he got almost all the black vote back in 2008.
That show we got serious problems with the mindset in this country, serious problems.

There are millions who have given up looking for work, their unemployment has run out.
These people are not counted in the unemployment numbers, if they were we would be over 18% unemployment.

And now that Romney has slipped and exposed his true feelings about the average American, this is more true than ever, in my opinion.

And what would that be? You always comment negative on Romney but have yet to explain why?
Is Obama's plan to do something about unemployment working?
Is the economy getting better?
Now that all the info about the Affordable healthcare act is coming out, everyone is seeing what a disaster it is going to be.
I am a democrat, will remain a democrat, but Obama is bad news and must go.

This is the real issue this election.
The effects of Obama's failed policies on small business and the middle class in America.

This record stretch of unemployment is unacceptable no matter who's in the White House.

You see how conveniently the numbers dropped just under 8% just a month before the election, no one in the know believes these numbers anyway.
They did it just to give Obama a talking point, but to me it's like moving your school course average from 58 to 60, it's still an F

I heard that one large US State (unnamed) conveniently failed to report any unemployment figures. I mean WTF Obama! All this deception, a far cry from his promised "Most Transparent Administration" ever.

To many games being played by this administration, give us the facts Obama and be a man about it.
