    And how did the economy and the debt/deficit do when Clinton raised taxes? Want to address that one?

    Actually it doesn't say it all. What says it all is that, as pessimistic as Americans are about Obama, they are even more pessimistic about the alternatives.

    Right, the 26% approval rating of the handling of the economy is an exceptional record. Guess the following trump your feelings.

    Obama economic results in 2011, .4% GDP and 1.3% GDP growth in 2011, 24+ million unemployed or under employed Americans in 2011, 4 trillion added to the debt in less than 3 years, and a downgrade of the U.S. credit rating. Rising Misery index 7.83 to 12.67. First President in U.S. History to have our credit downgraded on his watch! 39% JAR and well over 50% disapproval ratings and now 26% supporting his handling of the economy

    I would be happy to accept a GOP Congress as long as it was willing to raise taxes and cut spending and pass other Democratic policies.

    The GOP was against him raising taxes; not a single Republican voted for it. Yet it was followed by one of the strongest expansions of economic growth this country has ever enjoyed.

    It has nothing to do with my feelings. It's the country's feeling that they aren't happy with the way things are going, but they think that Republicans would make things even worse.

    Why does Congress have to raise taxes? Do your civic duty if you think that taxes are too low and send in a donation to the IRS more than what you owe.

    Yet you rail against Obama when prior to the Republican win in 2010, the economy was recovering (slowly, but steadily). Now in 2011 after Republicans have taken control of the purse strings, we've had the economy come to a screeching halt. Yet you continue to place all blame on Obama.

    If you want to blame the Congress for any current problem with the economy, do you agree that Republicans are completely responsible for the lose of America's AAA rating and the recent crashing of Wall Street?
    A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.
