There is not one Leading Economic Indicator that today is not better than when Obama took office. I'll make my judgement based on that. What is yours based on?
I'll also throw in as the final nail in your argument's coffin the fact that the ONLY reason the stock market is doing well is the result of the hundreds and hundreds of billions the Fed is doling out to the big banks and Wall Street, supposedly to trickle down to the middle class and the job creators.

Hasn't happened, what has happened is the 1%er's have gotten richer, the banks are making record profits and there has been no job creation.

I don't know why you apologists for Il Douche can't see this, the evidence is easily found.

Just where do you think the hundreds and hundreds of billions the Fed is handing out is going?

Mitch McConnell May Have Lost His Senate Seat By Using Duke Basketball In Kentucky Ad
Sen. Mitch McConnell’s latest self-inflicted wound to his bid for reelection was a whopper. The Kentucky Republican used footage of Duke winning the national title in a campaign ad.
Team Mitch, which may go down as one of the worst Senate incumbent reelection campaigns ever run, outdid themselves today with this ad:
The ad starts off in standard Republican territory. Mitch McConnell as hero to the working man. Mitch McConnell promising that he will run the Senate right if Republicans take it over. McConnell vowing to battle against socialism. Among all of the pictures of a smiling Mitch, we are treated to footage of the Duke basketball team celebrating their 2010 basketball national championship.
For those of you who don’t follow college basketball, there are several problems with this. 1), Duke is in North Carolina, not Kentucky. 2). The University of Kentucky won the basketball championship in 2012. 3). Outside of both wearing blue, Duke and Kentucky look nothing alike. 4). Basketball fans in Kentucky hate Duke.
The McConnell campaign pulled the ad down right away and fixed it, but the genie is out of the bottle. The ad is out there, and there is nothing McConnell can do about it.
Mitch McConnell’s reelection campaign has been so gaffe riddled and clumsy, it’s fair to start wondering whether if the Rand Paul ringers the Senate Republican leader brought in are trying to sabotage his reelection campaign.
For a man who is already battling the perception that he is out of touch with the voters back home in Kentucky, this was pretty much the last thing that McConnell needed. The fact that they got the state basketball team wrong screams out of touch.
The ad itself feeds into the feeling that voters in the state already have that McConnell doesn’t understand their problems, and care about them. The ad gaffe normally would just be a D’oh moment, but for voters this could serve as confirmation of what they already suspected.
Mitch McConnell is so out of touch with the state that he is supposed to represent that his campaign can’t even properly identify the correct national championship basketball team.
The message is clear. It’s time for Kentucky voters to ditch Mitch.

Revolution on the Horizon
By the late 1780s, it was becoming increasingly clear that the system in place under the Old Regime in France simply could not last. It was too irresponsible and oppressed too many people. Furthermore, as the result of the Enlightenment, secularism was spreading in France, religious thought was becoming divided, and the religious justifications for rule—divine right and absolutism—were losing credibility. The aristocracy and royalty, however, ignored these progressive trends in French thought and society. Rather, the royals and nobles adhered even more firmly to tradition and archaic law. As it would turn out, their intractability would cost them everything that they were trying to preserve.
The Bourgeoisie
Although many accounts of the French Revolution focus on the French peasantry’s grievances—rising food prices, disadvantageous feudal contracts, and general mistreatment at the hands of the aristocracy—these factors actually played a limited role in inciting the Revolution. For all of the hardships that they endured, it wasn’t the peasants who jump-started the Revolution. Rather, it was the wealthy commoners—the bourgeoisie—who objected most vocally to the subpar treatment they were receiving. The bourgeoisie were generally hardworking, educated men who were well versed in the enlightened thought of the time. Although many of the wealthier members of the bourgeoisie had more money than some of the French nobles, they lacked elite titles and thus were subjected to the same treatment and taxation as even the poorest peasants. It was the bourgeoisie that would really act as a catalyst for the Revolution, and once they started to act, the peasants were soon to follow.

These Bourgeoisie people are like todays middleclass and working poor. I take it they got tired of carrying the load while their 1% lived like royalty.
You are seriously confused, if we have a revolution it will be to throw the liberal elitists bums out once and for all. No rich person is keeping any of these welfare slugs down, they're free to succeed as far as their talent, initiative, drive, hard work, etc. will take them.

What you and all libs expect is for someone else to give you a great paying job you don't deserve. I've been poor, I started very poor, I didn't like it and i did something about it.

Here is the fallout from turtleman not checking his political ads and making a big ass of himself:

University of Kentucky Sends Cease and Desist Letter to Mitch McConnell

The University of Kentucky has released a statement concerning Senator Mitch McConnell using footage of Julius Randle in an advertisement.

McConnell’s campaign replaced the Duke footage that was mistakenly put into an ad with the above Randle picture.

The University of Kentucky consulted with the NCAA earlier today regarding footage of Julius Randle in a Mitch McConnell advertisement. Although the use of the student-athlete’s image in the advertisement is not permissible, because it was done without the knowledge or permission of the university or the student-athlete, it is not an NCAA violation. The University of Kentucky has sent a cease and desist letter and will continue to take appropriate measures to ensure improper usage of a student-athlete’s name, image or likeness is prevented.

What you and other ignorant libs want has already happened, it happened in the USSR, in Cuba, in N. Korea, in China. In fact it happened in Venezuela, is happening now and venezuela is a disaster, try getting ALL the news, I suggest Fox.

Shortages of food, of toilet paper, the basic necessities, that's what YOUR revolution would get us, complete collapse of the economy. In a oil rich nation.

allow me to share some enlightening data on who pays what income tax in the United States. We have a progressive (or regressive if you choose to look it the tax code correctly) in 2009, the latest available figures on income tax collection:

• The top 1%(1.4 million) paid 40.42% on income of $2.8 trillion.
• The top 2.5%( 5.65 million) paid 20.2%
• The top 5%( 7 million) paid 60%
• The top 10% paid 71.2% of all income taxes on income of $4.227 trillion.

Collected taxes :$794 billion

The bottom 50% of American taxpayers paid only 7.89 % of all Federal taxes collected !!

There you go again. Why does your dumbass think the top pays most of the taxes? They get most of the money Dumbdumb. The top 1% gets 19% of all income. The top 10% gets 50% of all income. The top 20% get 80% of all income each year. So would do you want paying the taxes? The 20% getting 80% of all the income or the 80% of wage earners getting the left over 20% of income

I would have never guessed capitalism to be one of the causes of the French Revolution.
For most of our existence, 90% of us lived on small farms, barely having enough to eat, never venturing further than 10 miles from the place of our birth, the industrial revolution and capitalism changed all of that. They enabled you and I to live in the virtual paradise many of us live in, Even our poor are rich by the standards of billions of others on this planet.
