The best news business can get today is Obama resigning.
    the rightwinges job is to ignore the bush* job destruction program of big spending and big govt debt. When Obama took office, he started creating jobs, but when the rightwingers won the house, they started destroying jobs again. If the right ever ran anything they would understand that democrats always inherit republican caused problems and it is their job to fix it. If they don't then someone else will be hired to do it.

    Like Obama firing missiles into Pakistan, a country we're not at war with, like almost as many soldiers being killed on Obama's watch as on Bush's watch, like Obama signing tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires.

    I am not a liberal, and I do not support Obama. I can see the damage he is doing. He's adding to damage that has already been done by BOTH sides.

    Obama inherited a $10T debt from the republicans big spending programs that mired us in debt.

    Now you're getting the idea, but you're forgetting about the $10T in debt that Obama inherited from the rightwing big spending policies
