    As did the labor force as almost 200k tried to get back into the labor force thus keeping the unemployment rate the same. There are now 14.9 million unemployed plus discouraged workers, which is still two million higher than when Obama took office. Are you ever going to tire of supporting an incompetent in the WH and a failed ideology?

    You say nothing Grim, why not rebut what was written? The pot calling the kettle black.

    So "your" President has been in office for 2 1/2 years and things are worse in terms of employment, unemployment, and under employment. Obama had a Democrat Congress for two years and has failed to generate positive results. Why would you want another term of this incompetence?

    The "so what" is that it's obviously true. Even conservative Repubicans will admit it -- if they are out of office and don't have to sniff the teabaggers' behinds. Take ownerhip of your accomplishments! Your team forced the economy to the brink of collapse, dinged our credit rating for the first time, and crashed the markets. Actions have consequences.

    Keep diverting from the Obama record for that is all you have. No one can defend what he has accomplished in 2 1/2 years.

    And what Obama inherited: economy shedding 700,000+ jobs per month, GDP shrinking at 6+% per year, financial institutions teetering on the edge of collapse, trillion+ deficit.... Nice improvement.

    You should want another Obama term because another Republican president would bring the economy crashing down just like the last one.

    One of Obama's campaign promises was to address this. The Dems had the numbers for two years. They did nothing. Would we be in a better position today if they had as opposed to paying people who were going to buy a car anyway, buy cars?

    You bet.

    Would the Dems still have the number if they had made different choices?
