    Your support for Obama says a lot about you. Guess you need what Obama is selling

    Unless something drastic happens and the economy rebounds or we go to war with Iran or China, Obama is toast. He knew it then and he knows it now.

    Meanwhile, he still leads each and every republican contender AND a generic republican contender in polls. I guess he didn't anticipate how pathetic the opposition would be.

    Does he really? Are you saying there are no polls that show Obama losing?

By the way, how many months do you think think country can sustain losing 500,000 to 800,000 payroll jobs per month? Wait, before you answer, here's a clue since that is what happened for 9 months between October, 2008 and June, 2009 ... 6 million payroll jobs were lost and the unemployment rate skyrocketed 44% from 6.6% to 9.5%.
    Wow! Barrack Obama really was right when he said he could provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; that the rise of the oceans would began to slow and our planet began to heal, that he could end a war and secure the US and restore its image as the last, best hope on earth. That this was the moment-this was the time -when he made it all come together to remake his great nation so that it may always reflect America's best and highest ideals. He was busy creating more jobs even while the percentage of the unemployed was rising. A true miracle worker!

    You're lying again, Conservative. I knew you wish I would stop pointing out your lies, but it's going to require your participation. All you have to do to shut me up is to stop lying.

    Look at what you falsely claimed I "tried to indicate" -- then compare it with what I actually wrote:


    "By the way, how many months do you think think country can sustain losing 500,000 to 800,000 payroll jobs per month?

    I can only hope you're capable of comprehending that saying, "between October, 2008 and June, 2009," in no way, shape, or form indicates "throughout 2008."

    I also hope you realize that you lose the argument the moment you lie as it completely undermines your position.

    Almost kinda makes you want Obama to make more gaffes so they can finally get some fresh ammunition. It really sucks for them that the pickin's are so slim, they still have to pull out the "57 state" gaffe.

    C'mon, Obama, throw 'em a bone, will ya?

    As Barrack Obama was President during most of that period, shouldn't he take some responsibility for all those lost jobs.

    And in October 2008, when it was a choice between Barrack Obama and Hillary Clinton, I can understand why employers were getting a little skittish.

    You've got the wrong person, I've said match up now are pretty much meaningless. JAR's don't measure if a person will vote for them. Liberals are likely to give Obama a bad JAR because he hasn't lived up to their expectations. You should read the article I posted, Both people have vast experience in public polling. David Moore was a V.P. and senior editor for the Gallup Organization.

    A choice between Clinton and Obama in October 2008?
