He is anti business and has not a clue as to what he is doing. He is in way over his head, and has made this recession worse like Roosevelt did for the great depression

For my small business in Spokane, WA our president provided the support that the SBA needed to assist my business in gaining the capital (in the form of a bank loan) for my business to expand creating 10 new jobs. our present is by no means "anti-small business" But yes he has opposed big business taking advantage of the average American. Before Obama, Big business was given tax incentives to send jobs over seas, tax breaks for not offering heath care for employees, allowed to financial take advantage of us and give our children health issues from pollution. of course big business does not like this, big business is never looking out for our best interest, just the bottom line which they are required to be law for there investors. Do you really want to live in a world ran by a couple of profit driven individuals that care about nothing but there bank account? I would prefer democracy, where your voice is valued the same as others

As for "he has no clue what he is doing" this is true, any one that clams they know what they are doing does not know enough to know what they do not know. i have been in the same business for 15 years with great success, I know that I do not know what I am doing.

And you last point, I am not sure I understand. I see that your post was from yesterday, at this time we are out of the recession, unemployment is lower then when our president took office and GDP is higher then when he took office. what statistics are you using to make this claim? I am by no means a political historian, but my understanding was that Roosevelt focused on our infrastructure to create jobs which ended the great depression, if you have other information, that contradicts this I would be interested in seeing it.

I am not sure what unemployment rate you are talking about but the rate in January 2009 was 7.6 percent according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. http://www.bls.gov/opub/ted/2009/feb/wk2/art0...

I do not believe we are lower than that currently.
