Sadly, the Obama bashers don't look at the numbers before and at the beginning of obama's administration and believe everything was hunky dory when President Bush left office. Facts and figures to the contrary don't help them. It is a lost cause!
You're right!

Obamatrons ignore facts and truths, like these....

Since January 20th, 2007, when the DEMOCRATS TOOK OVER BOTH HOUSES OF CONGRESS, the DemocRATS have....

• created record poverty,
• created record food stamp enrollment,
• created record foreclosures,
• created record-low private sector pay,
• created record-high government pay,
• created record death tolls in Afghanistan,
• doubled unemployment,
• tripled the deficit,
• added $4 trillion (+45.3%) to the national debt ($3 trillion under Obama),
• increased the debt limit by $5.33 trillion (+59.4%),
• turned the projected $800 billion surplus over the ten-year period FY 2008-2017 into a $9.7 trillion deficit, a $10.5 trillion worsening of the budget outlook,
• undertaken government takeovers of our economy,
• added ruinous new taxes and regulations,
• legislated billions in payoffs to state unions and union pensions,
• ruined our healthcare system, and
• crippled business, confidence, and prosperity in America.

Tomorrow is UNQUESTIONABLY the most important election in a half century.

Decades of failed liberal policies have culiminated in the near bankruptcy of our country, in addition to a tragic moral and ethical deline and the erosion of our leadership in education, innovation, and all things American.

It used to be that the Soviets -- during the cold war -- waited patiently for the US to racially destroy itself. But now, in this time, our enemies wait patiently for us to fiscally and morally destroy ourselves.

The democrats, since their takeover of both houses of congress in January 2007, have merely accelerated the process that they themselves have initiated.

Thanks to an utterly corrupt US media, legions of indoctrinated liberals and ignorant, entitlement enslaved democrats -- a product of their own ruination of our education system and their corrupt, unprincipled disdain for America -- Americans have elected a corrupt, inept, far-left fraud as president and empowered legions of liberals politicians whose failed policies have brought us to the brink of disaster.

Sure sure. This country is dominated by media induced fear than anything. We will see rupubs do the same thing they have done over and over, nothing. Perhaps some more fear, but nothing of substance. Then again, when was the last thing a regular person had any substance? Not often. The lame repubs are the mirror image of the public in general-lame.
I see you're still working hard at living up to your "Too Simple" moniker. Why is it you object to some media and label them fear mongers for presenting an alternate view to yours but the defend the liberal loon sources as if they were the gospel according to Christ? Sorry you tool, but your agenda isn't selling anymore. Some Americans finally realized what you were actually promoting.

What a choice: Boxer who ruined the country or Fiorini who almost destroyed one of America's marquee technology firms.

My suggestion is to close your eyes, hold your nose and blindly make your pick because the options are not good to say the least!

Obama should spend more time worrying about his future unemployment than about losing control of congress. The house is a foregone conclusion and even if the senate doesn't go completely this year then it will by 2012 if the Republicans keep their word to America. Of course Obama won't matter by then anyway as he disappears into the annals of history with that other total loser Jimmy Carter. Even if the Republicans don't get a majority in the senate Obama has to deal with a terrified bunch of democrats who will want to put their own re-election interest above Obama's brand of marxism. Stick a fork in them, they're done baby! And you some of you Republicans better be listening too, you can be sent down the road just as fast!
Just wondering, where will these jobs come from since most of our factories have been closed and out-sourced to Mexico or China/Asia? People who shop at Walmart buy the products they used to make before their jobs were outsourced.

There's not going to be jobs unless we wake up and realize what made those jobs disappear. We have to reverse the unequal trade policies, get union excesses under control, and stop illegal immigration for starters.

Even if they keep control of the senate, the republicans will use every trick in the book to stimy the democrats in any attempt to help the American people! Only morons and idots believe this to be a good strategy in order to gain support! The GOP liars and hyporites will continue to sit on the sidelines whiole average Americans struggle to eek out a decent living with the meager scraps that are tossed to us! The real winners will always be the wealthiest that control everything! The republicans know who to cater to, and clearly it's not the poor, the disenfrenchised nor the average middle class Americans!
Folks, the Star Chamber is flexing it's muscles to ensure that their interests are served above the rest of us by using their republican shills and showering them with millions of dollars in illegal foreign donations!
This will ensure their puppets, the GOP, will do as they're told!
A scary and dangerous situation indeed!
This election is not a referendum on president Obama, as the GOP would have you believe, but rather it's about a choice betweeen those that are with US, or those that are against US avegarge middle and lower class Americans!America, it's your choice! Do you want to turn over the reins of our democracy to foreign interests, the plutocrats and oligarchs, or keep it ours?
This is very funny.

Since the Democrats held a super majority and were still unable to get the stuff they wanted passed and why? Because the Democrats were divided and had no real leadership coming from Barry Soetoro AKA Barack Obama.

I mean the Democrats had absolutely no resistance from the Republicans at all except for that coming out of their own party.

Me thinks it is time you opened your eyes and start looking at the Democrats for what they truly are. Liars

Keep dreaming Republicans. You all are talking about avalanche and waves. Well nothing could be further from the truth because the GOP is associated with leaving the country in chaos every time they go the White House. Come Tuesday you all will have a wall of Dems stopping your destructive political policies and your dreams of taking over Congress. The choice is clear: vote for chaos or vote for keeping the country moving forward.
You mean like Cap and Trade?

Or what about the Community Reinvestment Act which forced banks to give sub prime mortgages to individuals living on Welfare?

Or Maybe the stimulus which only went to stimulate the economy of China.

Or maybe the bailout that went into foreign banks.

Or maybe the hostile government take over of GM which left over 6 million Americans without jobs.

Just since Barry Soetoro AKA Barack Obama took office we have lost 11.5 million jobs.

Numerous foreclosure help programs have also been created to keep property values artificially high and foreclosure rates low. The big question is how much longer the government will be able to prop up home prices, and if there will be an even larger crash if the programs and subsidies stop.

With 139 closures nationwide so far this year, the pace of bank failures exceeds that of 2009, which was already a brisk year for shutdowns with a total of 140. By this time last year, regulators had closed 106 banks.

So lets see the Democrats have been in control ever since 2006 and have had a super majority ever since 2009 and yet everything is the Republican's fault.

I think NOT.
