The country's greatest DISAPPOINTMENT ever in the entire history of our nation is this administration. With every arrogant flip and flop this regime's failures bring our country closer and closer to complete destruction....the dictator's DREAM.

You are kidding, Right? Being named Liar of the year is not much of an accomplishment. Usually I do not comment to you about politics, but you have to see the folly in your continuous belief of this man
I know of no one that is better off today than they were in 09. Unless you count welfare and food stamp recipients

Restored our economic strength? how? he keeps adding to the trillions of debt we owe. China may as well take us over and from what I hear they are claiming properties in our country as payment for some of the money the US owes China. How can you say our economy is strong when already we can't pay China to the point that we have to release some of the country's properties, businesses that they have claimed AND WE CAN'T ARGUE because we owe them!!! You didn't know this? why? because your messiah keeps all this from your favorite news channels, he censors their news so the sheep-like followers of his DON'T KNOW what he is really doing cause it might disappoint you all and he can't have that, he needs you to back him up even if only to protest against FOX NEWS.

Obama is at a low point - but the GOP-controlled house is MUCH lower.

They've made it their mission ever since he was first sworn into office to drag him down (and the entire nation) any way they possibly could. Mission accomplished.

Only problem for the GOPee party is they dragged themselves down much further in the process.

The voters won't soon forget who has been putting party politics above the good of the nation for the last 5 years.

The more Obama lies come out and the longer the Obamacare mess continues to get the responsible insured American's kicked off their insurance like millions more will next year the more people appreciate what the R's did do to try to stop Obama from doing even more damage. It's clear he is in over his head, they were just trying to keep it contained to a minimum. Thank goodness, it's just a shame they couldn't have said no and stopped Obamacare. But of course when you just bypass our laws and then change them whenever they don't work for you it's kind of hard to stop the stupid from coming out.

I know what you mean. I don't know anyone better off than they were in 2000. In fact, everyone is much worse off; neighbors, friends, family all have had jobs downgraded. In the company I work for, not a single person has had a raise since before 2000. Lots of jobs eliminated and people are working for much much less. Looking at the statistics from 1980 on, our economy grew on average 3% a year, yet there was no income growth for the people who did the work. More than 100% of the growth went to the top 5%. Everyone else lost ground.

Obama should have been working this issue. I suggested when he first took office that it would take at least 6 years (if he stayed in office that long) for the economy to start helping the middle class. That was how long it took Clinton; and it finally appears the economy is starting to rebound from bush. The next two years might be an improvement, but if we allow another republican to take over the nation it is doubtful we can ever recover. Look at Reagan. He destroyed the earning capability of the middle class and it took from 1980 to 1996 to recover. That pretty much destroyed the boomer generation from having life of economic security no matter what your training, skills or ability to work hard. Another republican in office would destroy further generations.

The deficit has more than doubled under this administration even now the fed is printing 85 Billion a moth to prop up the economy I do not call that an improvement You dollar is worth a lot less today than it was in 08 You get no interest The only people that are better off under this administration is the people who are on welfare or food stamps Food stamps have increase 30% my income and interest hasn'.t The only jobs created under this administration are government jobs which are unnecessary
What happened to all of the green jobs, the , shovel ready jobs , This guy is smoke and mirrors ,but some people are so duped by this fraud to admit it

Obama will go down as the worst president in history and the biggest liar. The radical left-wing loons will continue to lie and make excuses for him, but those of us who see this fraud for what he really is will not take anything the loons say seriously.
