    Why do you want to ignore your party's accomplishments? They happened. Actions have consequences. You can't oppose every effort to fix the problem and then whine because the problem hasn't been fixed. At least not if you're honest about it.

    You should want another Obama term because another Republican president would bring the economy crashing down just like the last one.
    Still waiting for you to post the Bush/Obama record side by side. You seem to run from that challenge and only post a couple months as an indication of what Bush accomplished. The Obama record speaks for itself.

    Obama economic results in 2011, .4% GDP and 1% GDP growth in 2011, 25+ 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! 38-41% JAR and well over 50-55% disapproval ratings.

    You bet.
    Where would GM and Chrysler be today without Obama? They are making profits, thank you very much Mr. Obama.

    No, the "so what" is meant to denote that I could care less that you post one former Senators opinion and expect all repubs to fall in line because it agrees with your own rhetoric, and delusional thinking. Your constant use of pejorative, and smear to describe those that politically disagree with your thinking is childish, and naive.

    All you do is bring talking point, platitude to any discussion you have, and therefore I really have little interest in talking with such Bull **** anymore. Unless you can discuss an issue without name calling, and smear type trolling we are done.

    "Your" President was in charge when we saw the greatest downturn since the Great Republican Depression.

    The only thing you can judge Obama by is what he accomplished vis-a-vis what he inherited. I mean, it's not like he inherited a budget surplus and turned it into a multi-trillion-dollar deficit, right?

    See, you really didn't want anyone to address your post. How did this address the jobs that went overseas? The payoff allowed people to buy Toyota's, Nissan's, Kia's etc. GM and Chrysler sold very few extra cars.

    You fall in line with every other wingnut talking point and follow the Limbaugh line like he's got a choke collar around your neck.
