    Re: President Obama Takes a Break at Camp David

    It is evident that the OP doesn't like Obama very much. That is fine, i don't why obamas can't take a weekend off like the rest of us. Bush took vacations to his ranch in texas during his presidency. If you don't like his politics that is ok, but doesn't mean everything he does on his own time needs to be criticized.

Amazing how that terrible recession ended in June 2009 and here we are over two years later with 14.7 million unemployed and 4 trillion more in debt. No one can claim that record is a success so what do you do other than ignore it.

    Obama hasn't added $4 trillion to the debt, it won't be true no matter how many times you say it. Massive layoffs which started in the Bush years cause big shortfalls in tax revenue. You've said this yourself.

    Swiss, I really don't care what Politifact says, I know the facts as does bea.gov, bls.gov, and the U.S. Treasury. I suggest you start doing some research. I lived and worked during both, did you? Any idea wat a 22 misery index feels like? Any idea what kind of malaise Carter left this country? You and the other youngsters here don't have a clue what it was like in 1980 and what Reagan inherited. The fact is his recession ended over two years after he took office and Obama's ended 6 months after he ended office. You don't know the difference?

    Then tell me how much debt Obama added. You have been asked that question over and over again but ignored it, just like you ignore all the facts presented from non partisan sites. Just because you believe doesn't make it true.

    Why don't you respond to my Afghanistan post where I dismantled every one of your arguments and provided concrete, factual evidence that I was correct and you were incorrect? It is much easier to make condescending statements about age, I know, but you'd gain some credibility if you didn't dodge my points.
