    Bush is out of office, "your" choice is in the WH and the results speak for themselves. The Obama resume said it all but you ignored it and now cannot face the fact that you voted for an unqualified, empt suit who has turned out to be incompetent.

    How you coming on those side by side comparison between Bush and Obama showing actual results, not percentage change?

    By early November, 2004, the Twin Towers were gone after America suffered the worst terrorist attack inside the U.S. as Bush didn't lift a pinky to even attempt to thwart the attack (fail!), he had invaded a nation over WMD that weren't there (fail!), unemployment had risen from 4.2% to 5.5% as 2.2 million jobs disappeared ...

    You are among the least of those qualified to complain that others are as unconcerned about Obama's results as you were about Bush's.

    Are you senile? I already provided them.

    Bush, unemployment went from 4.2% to 7.8% -- a 3.6 point jump (86% increase)
    Obama, unemployment went from 7.8% to 9.1% -- a 1.3 point jump (17% increase)

    Bush is no longer in office and not responsible for the 2011 numbers or the trillions Obama has added to the debt. You have a serious case of BDS and need to seek help. It will be the Obama record on the ballot in 2012 and there is nothing you can do to change that record and he has no plans to change that record. You ignored the resume and continue to ignore his incompetence. Continued diversion to Bush is all you can do but isn't selling.

    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.

    Percentage change means nothing, ask the 25 million unemployed and under employed Americans if they are happy with the Obama results and feel good about Obama having a lower percentage change but a higher actual number. Real people matter, not percentages

    Your non-sequitur doesn't even attempt to address the point I made that results don't matter to you, so you look absolutely ridiculous pointing out how results should matter to others.

    Bush took unemployment from 4.2% to 7.8% ... that 3.6 point increase (compared to the 1.3 point increase under Obama) is not a percentage.

    Explain to "others" then why the percentage change with Bush vs Obama matters today more than the 25 million unemployed and under employed Americans and extremely high unemployment 16.7% for African Americans?

    And with that low percentage change Obama has a net job loss and Bush had a net job gain. Obama will have to have 250,000 or so per month in job creation to just break even vs what he inherited. You supported a loser and are trying to defend that vote. Your choice is incompetent.
