WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?

He could've won if Obama didn't steal the election by commanding the IRS to block tea party donations to Romney and other Republican candidates. Obama should be impeached for sabotaging and undermining a US Presidential election.

He didn't block ANY donations.

I wanted to be president because I believe that my background and experience and my perspective and point of view would be helpful to get America back on track, to keep America the economic powerhouse it’s been and the champion of freedom here and around the world,” he said.

By continuing on the same the same track?

“I happen to believe that America is on a course of decline if it continues with the policies we’ve seen over the last couple of decades, and we need to take a very different course, returning to more fundamental principles, if you will.”

By putting Reaganomics on steroids?

That's why he wasn't elected.

Poor teabaggers.

It’s great to sit back after winning and watch the losers twist in the wind as they try and tell what, why, where and when… LOL…
Romney was a joke of a candidate who was running against a great President who just a year earlier walked to a White House podium to announce that (on his orders) Osama bin Laden had be taken out. I believe that was the night that Obama actually won the 2012 Election… but the 2nd Debate will forever be cherished as the death blow to any hopes of Romney’s people trying to steal the Presidency when Obama said “Please, proceed… LMFAO!!!!!

He meant by stopping Obama Care and reversing all the job killing regulations his Czars have come up with. With out those we would maybe have the 23 million still out of work........working.

Don't forget the "base" not voting for Romney. I hope their protest of not showing up to vote was worth it!

You are absolutely right.

Reagan's economic policies amounted to the most successful economic experiment in world history. The Reagan recovery started in official records in November 1982, and lasted 92 months without a recession until July 1990, when the tax increases of the 1990 budget deal killed it. This set a new record for the longest peacetime expansion ever, the previous high in peacetime being 58 months. During this seven-year recovery, the economy grew by almost one-third, the equivalent of adding the entire economy of West Germany, the third-largest in the world at the time, to the U.S. economy. In 1984 alone real economic growth boomed by 6.8%, the highest in 50 years. Nearly 20 million new jobs were created during the recovery, increasing U.S. civilian employment by almost 20%. Unemployment fell to 5.3% by 1989.

Reagan's "experiment" resulted in the worst recession since 1929.

George topped that in 2006.

Nov. 1982?

In December of the same year, the unemployment rate was 10.8%.

The year with the highest average unemployment rate was 1982 with an average unemployment rate of 9.71%

Reaganomics, worse than the POS it was named after.

The POS began outsourcing U.S. jobs.

Negotiating with our enemies.

Helping Al-Qaeda.

The success of an experiment should be measured by its results, not the conditions extant at its beginning.
Unemployment may have been over 10% in dec 1982, but what was it seven years later ; after Reagan's policies were put in place? Nearly 20 million new jobs were created during the recovery, increasing U.S. civilian employment by almost 20%. Unemployment fell to 5.3% by 1989.

Biggest difference between Reagan and Obama? Reagan actually did something rather than whine about the situation Carter left him.

The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, also known as the Financial Services Modernization Act of 1999 was enacted on November 12, 1999 following extensive lobbying by investment banks and other financial services companies.

The Act repealed the legal restrictions on combining banking and financial service firms of the Glass-Steagall Act of 1933. This allowing commercial banks, investment banks, securities companies and insurance companies to merge with each other.

The Glass-Steagall Act had prohibited any company from acting as both an investment bank and a commercial bank. Both were prohibited from owning insurance companies by the Bank Holding Company Act of 1956.

The final act passed the Senate 90-8, and the House 362-57, more than sufficient to override any veto by President Bill Clinton.

Poor teabagger.
