In the history of America our credit rating has never been downgraded until now under Obama. Since he took office there's been over 2 million people lose their job. That only counts for people applying for unemployment as the government doesn't track those who don't. Unemployment is almost 9% worst ever. Do I really need to continue its a no brainier.

You seem pretty set in your opinion, so I won't try to 'debate' per se... but some of your 'facts' are a little off. We're at 8.2% unemployment, and it's not even close to the worst ever. That would be 23.6%, in 1932. But without going back to the Great Depression, we can still find higher numbers... how about 10.8% percent at the end of 1982? Heck, it was higher than 8.2% more than a year after that. And I'm sure you hold Pres. Reagan fully accountable for that, right?

Unemployment has gradually been reduced. I feel more secure financially. My investments are worth more. All of my friends still have their jobs.

Gas prices up 100% in four years is killing tourism and recreational boating which in turn is destroying marine jobs on Harkers/Morehead and driving up the cost of subsistence fishing.
