The GOP has been successful in creating a stalemate. The red States in America are turning into mud pits. Some of the congressional Red Districts are almost ghost towns with tumble weed rolling through main street bounding off of abandoned and foreclose store fronts. ROFLMAO

But most of the conservatives, the low income conservatives are prideful people who would starve rather than ask for help. Charities are spilling over, food banks are sitting with empty shelves. But their congressmen never comes by and those people are in support 100% of those congressmen and all unite in hating Obama.

Those are the people that will not take anything from government all because if validates their argument that noone else should be allowed to receiver anything, but they all file for Earned Income Credits at income tax time.

They don't see the supplemental money those credits provide them as federal handouts. That's there false sense of self sufficiency.

Reasonable individuals have a thorough understanding of what needs to happen. As you know from the communication here on these boards that is not in all cases what we are dealing with.

To many of the voters are puppets believing the commands of their local representatives who have not missed a pay day since serving congress. Or are full of hate of Obama for the color of his skin. You get the government you vote into office. You can't complain about jobless when your representative campaigned on halting and hating any policy Obama wants to implement.

Exactly! The hypocrisy and stupidity of these people is stunning. The things they accept from the government they've convinced themselves are things they've earned, i.e. Social security, medicare and the lazy man's welfare, disability. However, the majority of them have paid no where near what current workers are paying into the system for these "entitlement" programs that support their hypocritical behinds.

I know this and of course you do too. Let's hope there's enough intelligent people with critical thinking skills to make sure these frauds and puppets for the rich are thrown out of office and we'll get some people in Congress willing to work with the president to turn this country around. Even some Republicans (who've been lambasted by their own party for having common sense) have said enough! This is getting ridiculous. Let's work together, stop being partisan and get this country working again. How many freaking clues do these idiots need?

I despair over the lack of critical thinking on the part of some Americans. Too dumb to stand correction. I don't know what kind of wake-up call they're going to need. If they suffer, good, but the rest of us should have to.

President Obama Has Outspent Last Five Presidents
By ELIZABETH FLOCK

President Obama has shelled out more in federal spending than the five presidents that came before him.
A new chart by the Comeback America Initiative (CAI), a non-partisan group dedicated to promoting fiscal responsibility by policymakers, shows federal spending by president as a percentage of GDP, and it doesn't reflect well on Obama.

And yet he continues to blame Bush,that he inheirited these problems. He forgets that he promised to fix the unemployment problem. Typical simian response, deny any responsibility, it's a part of that nasty cultire they're so proud of.Vote this simian and his troop out of the white house and put someone in there who can actually do something positive for this country.If obama is re-elected, it will show the true morality in this country.

The Fraud-in-Chief was too busy paying off the unions to create any jobs with the stimulus funds. The Stimulus Bill included $10 billion to bribe 160,000 members of teachers' unions to vote for Democraps and to win the endorsement of the NEA for Obama's reelection campaign in 2012.

“Obama's teachers' union bribe August 11th, 2010 5:34 am ET Yesterday the House of Representatives came back to town to complete passage of yet another stimulus bill, this one on the level of $26 billion with $10 billion of it going to prevent teacher layoffs.”

What frustrates me most is Obama, Clinton & their daft Democrat buddies have basically squandered much of the wealth of the Western world with their bold (but naieve) social policies.

They have actively been scaring away potential foreign investment & it certainly hasn't done the general population any favors.

The damage they have done is obvious, even from as far away as Australia.

you're absolutely correct!
we REALLY need obama for 4 more years of joblessness, uncertainty and wealth redistribution! 4 more years of non-leadership, clueless policy making and 4 more years of obama's agenda of "me! me! me!"
and let's not forget growing the welfare class...we need WAY more folks on welfare...
we NEED obama for ALL of those things if we're ever going to make america a 3rd world country!

The Fraud-in-Chief prefers to blame Bush for spending.

But, Presidents cannot spend money. Congress spends money. And, big-spender Democraps controlled Congress from 2007 to 2009, when Bush was still in office.
