    So you keep saying yet I have not seen you discuss why there are fewer jobs today than when Obama took office, higher unemployment, more discouraged workers that have dropped out of the labor force and the 3 trillion deficit in 2010 and 2011. Let me know when Obama has a net job gain vs a net job loss?

    Actually it does. There is a direct correlation between test scores and the money per pupil spent on education. Certainly financing corporate welfare by making massive cuts to education doesn't help...but perhaps in your backwards world...it does.

    As for the rest....Google it yourself, the statistics are very easy to find. Texas has the highest percentage of minimum wage and below minimum wage jobs in the country...and the poverty rates are out there for you as well.

    Really? That is what you believe? Prove it. Explain to me why Obama has a net job loss from when he took office and more discouraged workers today than in 2009?

    So you believe, that is fine, you are entitled to your opinion. Better tell that to the companies leaving California for TX and other low tax states before you have no tax base left. I posted the TX minimum wage numbers which were just like yours, 550.000. What you failed to recognize is that is 5% of the employment base in TX.What is that percentage in TX using the California minimum wage number? The numbers shown on google compare TX minimum wage to the Federal Minimum wage and ignores states that have their own minimum wage like California which also has a higher cost of livign.

    Not too shabby for a guy that inherited one of the biggest messes in history! Until someone more liberal comes along, he's the best option we've got!

    Remains unproven by you, that dog doesn't hunt either.

    The supplimental was for funding the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Bush owns those. So that's yet another dog that won't hunt for you.

    Deficit for FY2009: $1.9 trillion. Obama spent $200B on stimulus. The other $1.7 trillion is Bush's. Therefore, it's reasonable to say the debt has increased about $2.3 trillion because of Obama.

    Guess you don't recall the last 67 times we've engaged in this same conversation. Every time ending up with me pointing out that you never proved repaid TARP funds weren't applied to the deficit (which remains upproven); with me pointing out only $180B was applied to FY2009; with me pointing out the war supplimental was to fund the ongoing wars in Iraq and Afghainistan which Bush also dumped on Obama's lap.

    Obama's biggest fault is that he allowed his moderate self to capitulate to the GOP right-wing. Unfortunately I agree with you.....I would love a liberal in the whitehouse, but a moderate is about the best we can hope for.
