Which part of the "O-economy" are you unhappy with?
Has cut our deficits by more than half.
Interest rates at record lows.
Housing market rebounding.
Inflation low.
Led us out of Bush recession.
Presided over record breaking stock levels (with the Dow just recently closing over 17,000 for the first time in its 118-year history).
Reduced unemployment from 10% to 6.1%.
We just saw the fastest first quarter of job growth in the United States since 1999.
The quickest drop in unemployment in 30 years.
52 straight months of private sector job growth.
Cut deficits?? He increased our deficits more than any other President so that is easy to do. He has basically cut his own deficits in half.

Interest rates? These have been kept low by the Federal Reserve due The poor economy.

Housing market rebounding? Housing starts reduced by 9.3% and building permits reduced 4.3% in June.

Led us out of recession? This was the slowest recovery from a recession since the Great Depression.

Reduced unemployment? If the labor force participation rate was the same today as it was back when Barack Obama first took office, the unemployment rate in the United States would be a whopping 11.2 percent.

The US attempted to appease everyone. The claim was we were isolationist and had no interest in what was occurring in Europe and most of Asia. We attempted to be indifferent observers and pretended that this world war had no effect on us. Even after Germany sank two passenger ships we issued a strong warning that this MAY result in us breaking diplomatic ties. Germany instead broke ties with us.
Who and how did we appease anyone?? Be specific. What did we do that appeased either side in an existing war??

Europe was already at war, had been for years.

We were openly supplying Germany's enemies, which is why our ships were open to attack, but most Americans didn't want to enter a European War.

If you think Americans were wrong for opposing a European War, say so. You seem to think wars solve problems. Name one that has solved anything??

To equate isolationism with appeasement is typical of your ignorance of history and a condemnation of your fellow citizens.

Once again, you were caught in a stupid statement and were too proud to admit to it.

Nice going, Roxblow.

I have a very clear, defined stance. Just ask any of the people on here who've known me for the last 5-6 years.
Why would you renege to having others speak for you? So what is your stance? There is no such thing as terrorist or are you isolationist?

US meat supplier in China withdraws products
The Associated Press - By The Associated Press
1 hour ago


NEW YORK (AP)— OSI Group, an Aurora, Illinois-based company at the center of a food scandal in China, said that it was pulling all of the products produced by its Shanghai Husi unit from the marketplace.

The company was thrust into the spotlight last week when a Chinese TV station reported that the Shanghai plant had repackaged old beef and chicken and slapped new expiration dates on them. OSI owns the unit, which supplies meat for some of the world's most popular foods, including the Big Macs and Quarter Pounders served at McDonald's restaurants.

OSI, a privately held company, said in a statement published on its Chinese website late Saturday that it was conducting an investigation into the actions of current and former managers and had brought a new management team to China.

Son, you're in no position to demand anything from anyone since you're making fun of wounded vets.

You really ought to reevaluate your priorities and take your politics out of it for a chance. It may bring back a bit more of your humanity!!!

Bluffing doesn't work.

There was no appeasement prior to our entry to WWI.

Prior to the sinking of the Lusitania, American public opinion was firmly against our entry to war.

That was not appeasement, it was the will of the people.

Only you would ask such a stupid question.

Straw man, anyone?? That's a classic. Nowhere has anyone denied that terrorism exists.

Show me where anyone has denied terrorism or terrorists.

The Zionist Irgun were terrorists. I've already explained that to your wooden head.

Why do you continue to twirl around in that ridiculous oversized tutu looking like such an idiot??
