Duh!

. Contrary to Republicans' predictions of doom and gloom, the US Economy is looking better. They can no longer claim that Obama cooked the book, so, they are creating distractions with FAKE/fabricated scandals...

. To the GOP: Govern!
. Quit Moaning and Bitching like sore losers which you are (Ryan/McCain and Fox News)

Good News: it's been reported that "ObamaCare" is saving money for at least a couple of States, so far... Suck on that, T-Bagr'z!

The American economy and job market look a lot better when you compare them with Europe’s. Across the Atlantic, governments have been cutting spending and raising taxes even more aggressively. The 17 European Union countries that use the euro currency slid back into recession in the fall of 2011 and have been stuck there since.

Eurozone unemployment hit a record 12.1 percent in March, reaching 27.2 percent in Greece and 26.7 percent in Spain.

The election of the GOP majority in the house in 2010 put a damper on nobama and pelosi's spendrama, which would've put us in the same boat as Europe, dingleberry.

The economy is improving because businesses know they're not going to be hit with any more megabama taxes. However..........due to nobamacare there is less hiring going on, more being moved to part time so companies don't have to pay it.

Economies are booming in Texas and other red states which is being figured into nobama's fuzzy claims...yet he has nothing to do with the success of the low tax states growth.

Get a brain.

The only successes nobama has had is with the Bush policies he kept intact.

Cheney didn't lead the last administration, fruitcake. That was a dumb statement you made in another forum, and it's dumb now.

These trumped up fake allegations of a scandal are already showing to have had no effect on the President’s standing, and it is going to come back full circle to bite the right – right in their dairy-aire .

Personally, I just enjoy the right continually crying out in pain. The American people have spoken; and the right can’t deal with what ‘We the People’ said:

We reject their candidates and ideology… that’s why we have the White House and the Senate… and in 2014 Nancy Pelosi will snatch the gavel away from Boehner and get all the laws passed that the republicans held up since 2010.

It’s going to be great!

You are a crook!
. You are trying to steal Obama's success and give the credit to T-bagrz already?

. The US economy started to stabilize right away while your side had been complaining recovery was too slow and depression was looming...

. I listen to Hannity and Limbaugh; I've heard their lies and false predictions about Obama's economic plan. They've been proven wrong!

. Quit stealing; GOP crooks!

Regarding Bush: He's a nice guy, but was president in title only; "Mean Dick" was the actual leader. George was just the spokesman for the administration... We all knew it!

It is right and proper for the Legislative branch to vet the actions of the Executive branch.

Obama, as a purported Constitution scholar should know this.

Sounds great!

Obama is doing great, but I'm a bit cautious for 2 reasons:
1. GOP crooks are very savvy when it comes to manipulate the Media and public opinion
2. In general, Democrats are not very enthusiastic about mid-term elections; they tend to stay home while Republican turnout remain steady

Keep hope alive!

This why the IRS investigation will surely reel in Republican crooks.

. It was the Republican establishment operatives who'd been fighting with Tea-party groups over GOP donors.

. People believe GOP appointees at the IRS were trying to help GOP incumbents from getting primaried by T-bgr candidates...

. Boomerang!

What success?? LMAO

It is not in recovery and with the outset of Obama care, higher taxes, higher gas and inflation while printing money we are going to see this lack of growth. The truth is we have negative growth if you consider the population increase and the number of people dropping out of the workforce because they can't find a job!

The US economy stablizes three years after the 2010 election, not right away as you claimed, the crash happend in 2009!!! It has just barely recovered, but most industries are very careful about investing right now and expanding. Nobamacaretax is about to hit full time and most businesses are cutting back!!

Bush ratings are now surpassing obama's.

Texas #1 business state 9th year in a row...nobama has NOTHING to do with it. Republican legislature, Lt. Govornor and Govenor last 20 years, including George W. Bush

California largest blue state facing high unemployment, towns filing for bankruptcy along with high taxpayers moving out....such as businesses and pro athletes.

Bush attempted to get fannie/freddie under control 5 times, each time blocked by Dodd/Frank...which led to the crash.

If you think that we are going let you claim your demorat fuzzy math in a false claim this administration is doing anything...you're fooling only yourself!!

You're funnier than a candelight tour of a Chinese fireworks factory, boy.

Hannity...OK

Don't listen to Limbaugh..

Dr. Lorrie Roth, Raul Contreras (a real Marine) and Allen West. Your pretend Marine boyfriend claims he made Allen West back down onec, Allen assures us with a chuckle that is false.

Check out the National Hispanic Republican Assembly..there is a growing disenchanment with the hispnnics and the demorats. The times they are a changing!!!

You had all three until nobamacaretax. Then We the People fired Nancy and many of those who voted for it lost in 2010. The republicans gained most of the governorships based on the fact they will fight against obamacaretax.....

Wait till it hits everyone in the pocketbook soon, pretend Marine. You and nobammy will think you knocked over a hornets nest.

The only votes nancy will get from now on are from the old hippies near san fran. That's about it.

The republicans are as bad as the democrats, but I feel like the republicans are the lesser of two evils. Just my opinion. Thank God for a two term presidential limit. There should be a limit for every politician from top to bottom.
