    Businesses are starting every day. Wall street seems to be doing really well. Businesses aren't worried about "Obama" they're worried about our unstable, extremely partisan, and ineffective government.

    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.
    Nope, those were the result of failed Republican fiscal policies.

    Anemic growth = due to nobody having a job

    24+ Million unemployed = Bush tax cuts still in place, wasn't that supposed to create jobs? Where are the jobs?

    4 trillion added to the debt = As opposed to the 6 trillion Bush Jr. Added? At least this one kept us from economic collapse.

    Downgrade of US credit rating = Dems had a comprehensive plan, we even but medicaid and SS on the table. GOP only wanted the bare minimum. GOP got 98% of what they wanted. I guess that 2% is what caused the downgrade right?

    Misery Index = Ineffective government as a whole. 14% congress approval rating.

    Like it or not the GOP field, including Perry are piss poor compared to Obama.

    While the GOP has been slaming Obama for almost 3 years now, dragging him through the dirt with half truths and mud... the mudslinging against the GOP field has barely started and already we are all seeing the pathetic state the GOP field is in. Despite all the supposed bad things Obama has done or not done, no one in the GOP (as of yet) is beating Obama in the polls... That sir, say volumes about the GOP field.
    What is out of context in the numbers I posted? They are verifiable but then no Obama supporter wants to even try to refute them. Why is that? Looks to me like 39% approval rating for Obama says it all. Do you really think that poll numbers for potential candidates vs. Obama trump his results?

    Bush tax cuts were in 2001-2003, did you ever not get a raise for 8-10 years? Incredible that Obama had a blank check and generated these numbers. How did Obama inherit the 2011 numbers?

    I wonder what your tone would be today if a Republican, 2 1/2 years after taking office, having total control of Congress, and a blank check generated the 2011 numbers we have today?

    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.

    You're obviously not interested in discussing what you say you are. You keep asking people to address the numbers you posted, I do and you glaze over them and then ask people to address them again. If you're going to hand wave away any explanation without consideration why are we continuing to discuss anything with you?

    It has been stated that the numbers posted for 2011 are out of context and you have yet to prove that. The numbers are what they are as are the current approval ratings for Obama. You believe tax cuts from 2001-2003 should be having an affect now and they are. If you are working and paying taxes you are indeed benefiting from lower taxes. Those lower taxes however are not offset at the business level by regulations, Obama initiatives, and potential for higher taxes. Businesses cannot print money like the govt. and are not going to hire people with the uncertainty created by this Administration thus the numbers we have today.

    You are parroting DNC talking points. Wonder what your tune would be if these were a GOP President's number 2 1/2 years after taking office. Wonder why liberals want to judge Bush on one year, 2008 but not Obama's results 2 1/2 years after Obama took office?

    Businesses are most concerned with the undertainty involved in debt ceiling machinations. They are somewhat concerned that Republicans may blow up the economy if they aren't allowed to stay up half an hour later to watch more TV. Now, if uncertainty is such a problem, btw, why didn't Bush make his tax cuts permanent? Why did he devise them so they would periodically expire? Want to know the answer? He did it that way because otherwise, the long term projections showed that they would lead to massive deficit spending.
