He could even do more if the racist, party of NO would grow up and act like the 'christian's' they purport to be. BTW Thanks, W! To bad you didn't spend as much time on cleaning up your messes in DC as you did in Crawford.

Exactly! When Obama took office there were 133,561,000 people working. Today there are 132,409,000 people working. http://www.bls.gov Give him another four years and maybe he'll be able to find jobs for those million people in various government agencies.

When he took office the unemployment rate was 7.8%, now it's 8.3% because almost two million people have given up looking for work. http://www.bls.gov Give him another four years and maybe he'll get another couple million folks to give up looking for work and just depend on government assistence. Then he will have the unemployement rate down around 7.5%

When he took office the average price of gas was $1.84, now it's $3.44. http://www.bls.gov By working to increase the price of gas to $5/gallon and if need be,$10/gallon he will eventually get everyone to either own an electric car or work from home (assuming you have a job). The other advantage here is that the more people who aren't working, the less they drive which helps slow global warming.

All sarcasm aside, lets see if you can name just three specific things that the President has done that has made the economy better.

Since taking office he has added 4 trillion dollars to our nations debt ( more that all presidents before him combined). Gas prices have doubled. Encourages Redistribution of wealth & entitlements/ Little to no job creation especially in Oregon. Many businesses are no longer & in my field it had decreased by 1/2.

I beleive that his idea with the Healthcare law has hurt my family and many people as far as cut back on hours on there jobs to part time, as there employers do not want to pay there health insurance so now they r partime, and can noyt find another job in such as small town to supplement there incomes, but yet do not have enough to pay for insurance, and or will not go begging for food stamps!
