You forgot to mention that a recent poll President Obama was seen as the worst President in 70 years… maybe in the history on man… in the history of the Universe.

LOL!

OMG, it must really be killing you unpatriotic-“I hope he fails”-idiots to see this great news… President Obama’s policies has turned the 8 year Bush disaster around, and although we have a ways to go before some of Bush’s mess can be totally fix (while other things like Iraq will always bare his stain) we can see that President Obama will be seen as possibly our greatest President…

You must hate the 4th of July, especially this year and every year that Obama has been the President… I Love It!

The true unemployment rate is 12.1% in America. The 6.1% touted by obuma and his minions is a farse, more lies from this corrupt lying administration.

Another brilliance of the Obama administration is that America's recovery, from being decimated by 8 years of Bush, is being carried out without the resentment class conservatives. Their party of NO, gets NO credit. Except for the huge deficits laid at the doorstep of President Obama, by Bush.

"Obama has been one of the most effective presidents in American history to reduce deficit levels."

He has failed. President Obama's policies has nothing to do with America's successes whatsoever. Remember. The Republicans refused to pass Obama's Jobs Bill? Imagine if they had. We would be in a world of hurt right now. The only credit to be given for job gains is the American Job Creators and the Republican party for refusing to cave into Odumbos socialistic demands.

Today will be Obama's last 4th of July with a Democrat controlled Senate. This time next year, Obama will be a lame duck forced to sign the bill that repeals Obamacare. What's he going to do? Take some responsibility and veto it? That loser hasn't got it in him. He will simply sign the legislation into law, shrug his shoulders and claim that ACA was a republican plan tat he was against the whole time.

How many of these "jobs" are low paying, part time, dead end, with no benefits, other than those provided by the taxpayers?

Your pretty stupid. Al Gores daddy would have really hated Obama, and KKK Robert Byrd died early because he couldn't handle it. It's one reason the Obama hate machine trashed Herman Cain, not white folks. You boy hasn't been to a black neighborhood since taking the oath he don't obey.

"Solid US job gains pointing to a stronger recovery"

If our tea partiers were the "patriots" they boast of being, we'd reasonably expect them to celebrate the news of such success even though they've done nothing but complain that President Obama's policies are destined to fail. However, reality can be a mean mistress.

Hey idiot, the first 2 years of the Obama Presidency the Democrats controlled both the House and Senate…

Obama:
Passed Health Care Reform: After five presidents over a century failed to create universal health insurance, signed the Affordable Care Act (2010). It mandates a suite of experimental measures to cut health care cost growth, the number one cause of America’s long-term fiscal problems.

Passed the Stimulus: Signed $787 billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act in 2009 to spur economic growth amid greatest recession since the Great Depression. Weeks after stimulus went into effect, unemployment claims began to subside. Twelve months later, the private sector began producing more jobs than it was losing, and it has continued to do so for twenty-three straight months, creating a total of nearly 8.7 million new private-sector jobs.

Passed Wall Street Reform: Signed the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (2010) to re-regulate the financial sector after its practices caused the Great Recession.

Turned Around U.S. Auto Industry: In 2011, the Big Three automakers all gained market share for the first time in two decades.

Recapitalized Banks: In the midst of financial crisis, approved controversial Treasury Department plan to lure private capital into the country’s largest banks via “stress tests” of their balance sheets and a public-private fund to buy their “toxic” assets. Got banks back on their feet at essentially zero cost to the government.

Kicked Banks Out of Federal Student Loan Program, Expanded Pell Grant Spending.

Passed Mini Stimuli: To help families hurt by the recession and spur the economy as stimulus spending declined, signed series of measures to extend unemployment insurance and cut payroll taxes.

Passed Credit Card Reforms.

Gave the FDA Power to Regulate Tobacco.

Pushed Federal Agencies to Be Green Leaders: Issued executive order in 2009 requiring all federal agencies to make plans to soften their environmental impacts by 2020.

Invested Heavily in Renewable Technology.

Pushed Broadband Coverage.

Sorry to burst your delusional bubble but this great news on the economy has everything to do with the actions and policies that President Obama took in his first two years in Office… just imagine how much better things would be if the republicans weren’t racist and wanted to help the Black President get the country going even better.

How is a net reduction in full time jobs "pointing to a stronger recovery?" Maybe intentionally importing millions of people to put on the public dole will take your attention off that basic question.

Starting your reply by calling your opponent an idiot and ending it by calling Obama's opposition racist does little to make your case. Filling the space between your start and finish with Obama talking points is just a waste of time.

Obama's Jobs Bill was nothing but a speech. It did nothing to create a job. Have you even read it? Or did you just take his word that what he said in the speech was what was written on his actual proposal?

It's not like I didn't want Obama to succeed I voted for him. I believed he would follow through on his campaign promises. I even accepted his pointing the blame to everyone but himself for the failures. But after the second election was over and Obama began hunting down whistle blowers as criminals it became clear that Obama was a bald faced liar. Whistle Blower protection was one of his campaign promises. A transparent administration was another. The republicans didn't force Obama to break those promises. Obama promised to allow the Patriot Act to expire. He could have kept that promise but he didn't. Not only did he sign the reauthorization, but he redoubled efforts to spy on the American citizenry. Once I started opening my eyes to Obama's lies it became clear what Obama was. He is no different than my lazy self serving coworkers who grabs credit for my successes and pass blame for their own failures.

The Republicans took the house back and are set to take the senate this fall and it's all Obama's fault.

Obama:
Passed Health Care Reform:
It isn't working as advertised. Health care costs continue to rise faster than every other industry and it has done nothing to create jobs. In fact, hospitals and clinics are laying off health care workers and closing their doors as a result of Obamacare. Those who have health insurance now that didn't have it before are people who get it for free. The CBO has a new report out on the negative effects of the ACA on our long-term fiscal problems and it's not good. Not good at all. Democratic congressional candidates are ducking and hiding from Obamacare and distancing themselves from Obama.

Only because banks quit lending student loans for majors like African Studies and Ebonics minors. Obama says that a college degree is a college degree. The problem is, some degrees are worth more and others are worthless.

Oh, that is smart! Record numbers of Americans are signing up for food stamps and social security disability so Obama reduces the amount collected to pay for these things. And what did it do for the working class families? Give us an additional $250 per year to spend? Yeah! That really worked. Didn't it?
