What's your point and do you think the 12 million unemployed really care about the stock market?

this isn't a matter of opinion, it's a measurable piece of date. almost all of OBAMA's policies have helped and are a step in the right direction, although progress has been hindered by the bass-ackwards far right and their unwillingness to compromise

May be somewhat regional, but retail sales are up, auto sales up for awhile, housing starts up, foreclosures down, unemployment numbers down.....we are going through a slow recovery.....of course, many won't want to accept it.....

He has spent money on idiotic things- he has wasted billions. The only thing stimulated was his left wing friend's wallet

Actually, though you probably prefer bad news....regionally hiring is up, foreclosures down, auto sales up, retail sales up, existing home sales up,.....12 out of 300 million, not the end of our economy, and some of those jobs won't be coming back.....but a slow recovery....

So now we're counting the elderly, children, those in prison and hospitals, and disabled folks as "employable"? Foreclosures are down simply because there are no homes left to be foreclosed. It's rather like saying, "Well, the forest fire is out now" while ignoring that a million acres just went up in smoke! Your positions are weak and furthermore, they are incorrect. I suggest you avoid the DNC website and do some of your own research.

Cost of living is rising; quality of life is declining. He's been spending money that we don't have, which will saddle future generations with onerous taxes. Record numbers of people are on at least one entitlement program. Sustained unemployment not seen since the Great Depression. Oh, but he's doing a great job. NOT.
