One thing is clear.

With the economy in the tank, Obama's rating's are being proped-up by the main-stream media'

The fly in the ointment is the Internet, which is the voice of the downtrodden middle-class. This explains the Obama Administration's relentless attack on Internet Freedom; so citizens will have to be standing guard.

Here is a video sounding the alarm.

New regs = more pink slips

For all his talk of job creation, Presi dent Obama has targeted many occu pations for extinction. Using un elected bureaucrats to implement a host of job-killing measures, his administration is generating piles of pink slips:
Oil: Even before the BP spill, Obama's Interior Department had cracked down on domestic drilling. In 2009, regulators allowed less than $1 billion in new oil and natural gas leases on federally controlled areas -- both onshore and offshore -- compared to $10 billion under President George W. Bush the year before.
Then, in response to the Gulf spill in April, Obama slowed down things even further, with a moratorium on deep-water drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. That proved so unpopular that the administration officially ended it -- but it remains in force unofficially, as regulators bottle up drilling permits with red tape and delays, keeping workers idle. Most recently, Obama regulators placed the entire Atlantic and Pacific coasts off limits to drilling.
AP
Furious flotilla: Fisherman lined up their boats off Martha's Vineyard last summer to protest job-killing regulations.
Factories: Rising regulatory burdens, energy prices and health-care costs -- Obama has left no stone unturned in making American manufacturing globally less competitive and in forcing jobs overseas.
For example, several new Environmental Protection Agency permit requirements have shut down the construction of coal-fired power plants needed to provide manufacturers with affordable electricity. Jeffrey Holmstead, a former top air-quality EPA official, noted that in 2009 the incoming Obama bureaucrats "withdrew permits that had already been issued," and that "dozens are being held up today because they have no way to meet a new standard that EPA has put out."
It will soon get worse. A barrage of new regulations, including measures intended to address global warming, will hit in January 2011 -- directly targeted manufacturers, and far more costly and complex than anything imposed by America's global competitors, like China, on their own industries.
Mines: The decades-long regulatory squeeze on minerals mining continues unabated, and the Obama administration has now added coal mining to the hit list. The attack includes global-warming regulations that seek to restrict demand for coal and also direct attempts to stop new coal mines from opening.
States that rely on coal-mining jobs are feeling the pinch. Joe Manchin, formerly West Virginia's governor and now its newest US senator, boasts that, "over the past year and a half, we have been fighting Obama administration attempts to destroy the coal mining industry." As governor, Manchin sued the EPA in an attempt to prevent the agency from blocking coal mines in his state. But Obama shows no sign of budging -- even though Manchin is a fellow Democrat.
Radical environmentalists have all but declared war on high-wage blue-collar jobs in this country, and the Obama administration has sided with them. The nation's stubbornly high unemployment rate is evidence they're winning.

The job market was on a downspin the day that Bush signed the bailout. Oh maybe you forgot that it was Bush that did that? He had absolutely no accountability. Just gave all that money away and expected nothing. Do you remember the corporations that got the money taking huge bonuses because of it? Do you remember that Obama made them pay it back?
As far as freedom goes. 9/11 happened during Bush. That changed a lot of our freedom. Actually, Bush was able to take away our privacy because of what happened. Exactly what freedom are you lacking today because of Obama?
I have a lot to say about the gas prices, but they are more my opinions. Let's just say, Obama doesn't play ball like Bush did...
Bwaaa ha ha Not going to talk about gas prices because it's your opinion....and the other BS you posted wasn't??????

I know WHO signed TARP…I wasn’t for it…BUT, we have been paid back (by the banks/financial institutions) and the country has made $22BILLION profit off of it. http://bottomline.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2012/04...

Profit from the financial institutions that Bush bailed out…now, look at GM and who Obama gave money to or spent in on…..we will be in the HOLE...but hey, Obama will NEVER accept blame and you seem to be of he same mentality. Typical!

I remember the corporations that got money taking huge bonuses…….apparently you don’t remember that is was (Dem) Dodd that APPROVED the bonuses. God that was a pathetic attempt on your part……is that all you got?

FISA is what I didn’t like that Bush Implemented…taking away freedoms from Americans…and OBAMA has put FISA into overdrive. My god you are so uninformed its actually kind of funny.

Besides FISA…..Other Freedoms being trampled on by the Obama Administration…..hhhmmmm….. how about The Right to Petition the Government for Redress of Grievances…cant demonstrate anywhere near Obama or secret service……or….how about….The Right of Privacy: Once the NSA’s new Big Brother data collection center goes online in September of 2013, you will no longer have a right to any sort of privacy in America. Any transaction or communication that you make that involves an electronic transfer of any sort will be collected and catalogued by the federal government….

oh dang, I almost forgot about The Right to Freedom of Religion: Obama signed a U.N. Resolution on December 20, 2011 that makes it illegal to say anything negative about Islam, even if it’s true….WOW…..

Oh, Oh, Oh…..I’ve got another one…. The Right to Life: You no longer have the right to live if Barack Hussein Obama declares you to be an enemy of the state. Eric Fast-and-Furious Holder and Obama have both claimed the right to assassinate American citizens on U.S. soil if they are suspected of being a terrorist. At the same time, the government is declaring that Tea Party members, Christians, preppers, conservatives, libertarians and people who make cash purchases for mundane items are terrorists….

Oh, but don’t forget The Right of Property: Obama signed an executive order on March 16, 2012 which states that the government can seize all property, all food and even your labor in both emergency and non-emergency times. You can be forced to work for the government without pay, and the government can confiscate anything and everything within U.S. borders at the drop of a hat. All Obama has to do is flip a switch and our illusory way of life could come to an end…..and on and on and on….You obviously don’t know much about Freedoms that Americans are guaranteed, politics or the damage that Liberal Progressives like Obama has done to this country. You lose!

Think Progress.....oh, sh!t I'm still laughing at that one. Oh....it just PROVES how unAmerican you really are... FYI my little unAmerican, POS troll: According to the Bureau of Land Management, the current administration has actually decreased approval of drilling permits by 36 percent. Even under Bill Clinton, his administration increased the approval of drilling permits by 58 percent, and George W. Bush increased approval by 116 percent.

The drilling the first two years of Obama were approved under Bush. Nice Try...YOU LOSE!

You bitch (in your BS posts) about Mitt Lying. How about you put together a list of Mitt's lies and we compare to Obama's??????????

Bush walked into his office with a SURPLUS in the budget. He left the office signing a 700 billion dollar bailout. He spent money faster than any other president and when he left office he had an approval rating as low as Nixon.
Let's not mention he started a war with a country in the name of weapons of mass destruction of which we found none. He did not kill Bin Laden...that happened in Obama's term. He was in office for 7 years after 9/11 happened and went to war with a country because of a personal vendetta and used 9/11 so Americans like you would support it.
Yeah, life was great.
The advantage Obama and the Democrats have is that all the stupid people vote for them... because they're stupid and thus easily fooled.

Google what all the leading Democrats were saying about Iraq BEFORE the war started. They were every bit in favor of it as Bush was. They ALL relied on imperfect intelligence. Unfortunately, it's difficult to obtain reliable intell from a police state, especially if that state had a program designed to fool everyone into believing that they did indeed have WMD's. The French intell serviced believe it, as did the Russian's, the UK and the United Nations. When Bill Clinton was President, he believed it too. Google his remarks which, if you didn't know it was him, sound EXACTLY like Bush.

However, since the Dems mainly appeal to stupid people like yourself, they knew they could pretend they had never supported the war and you'd believe them. If you got suspicious, they just claim that Bush cooked the intell, which begs the question: does that mean that Clinton ALSO cooked the intell when he was running things?

As to your second point, yes, Bush was a RINO and spent money like a drunken sailor. You are correct. Again, the Dems are depending on stupid people, because their "solution", is to spend even MORE trillions and behave like a whole f*cking shipload of drunken sailors.

Idiots like you who cannot think are the Democrat base. Use your brain, read some history and quit being such a moron. The Dems are playing you like a sock puppet.

I don't have to rely on what other people say. I can form my own opinions. And I am not one to vote for a party just because they are in that party. That would be you. If Romney has something good to bring to the table then I will vote for him. I haven't heard anything impressive from either side, but at least I will listen. That's more than I can say for you...I think you are the sock puppet.

Well, Mr. Comrade La Douche-bagger "crapola" has to try his best to cover his incompetent Dictator's ass. Remember, the far left motto, facts mean nothing, change the subject, but, but, but, your a racist, deflect, deflect, deflect,

So what if Chicago, that has been run by democrats for years and years, has a poverty rate of 27.5% Chicago gets a free pass by the far left douche-baggers.

The important thing to whine and complain about is that Oklahoma has a poverty rate of 16.2%

Democrat douche-baggers are fckin stupid... They all need to shipped, via spacecraft, to the far-a-way Galaxy of Kumbaya and dumped on the planet "Stupidor".
