Just look around. High unemployment/underemployment. The numbers of unemployed just giving up. Companies still laying off. The debt being passed to our children, and for what, so a political party can continue to make us all more dependent on the government.

Of course it is, at this point in time. Do not expect to see (depending on several factors like:(1) International Situations including All SW Asia, China, Iran, XL Pipeline, elections, manufacturing, taxes, Congress, healthcare, et al.

And you think it's only bad in St Charles, MO? Dream on, my Friend...

The economy pretty much bottomed out after eight years of the previous administrations policies and six years of conservative congressional control. Additionally, nobody, ever, has been able to even have a rational conversation about spiraling healthcare cost and 80 million Americans without healthcare coverage. The president said he was going to address the issue and has. Not to the approval of everybody, obviously, but universal approval will never be the case.

Obama's policies are ineffective because taxes on businesses, large and small, demotivate people to start or expand business and thus it stymies growth and reduces the number of jobs. His health care reform is both horribly expensive and it is ineffective. He has failed to make the necessary changes and budget cuts that will matter and help in the long run. He seems to have no understanding of national and internation economics.

Unemployment is down. Teachers, police and fireman jobs were saved. Oil prices are coming down as I write this. Auto industry is thriving. I am part of the 99% and I will vote for canidates that support my ideals (and for that matter Jesus Christ's ideals). Hum... I seem to rememer Jesus getting into it with the 1% money changers.

right on elmer!! this president has made some big leaps for america.taxes were dropped under bush and made no difference as expected(just added to debt).the healcare thing is not perfect but the best he could get done.If you look at the data the stimulas created millions of jobs.all while the crooked repubs have fought night and day to destroy him and take us down with him.and the tea baggers are in a whole nother league of ass holes. I just pray that old mitty never sees the inside of the whitehouse or canada will need to build a fence.we need fair trade agreements to fix this country,not a pioneer to job exportation to make it worst
