    One reason why I dislike showing data. It depends on the window of time you are looking at.

    No, not as good, but clearly an improvement relative to where he started.

    I'm often inclined to think that the irrational hatred of Obama on the right must be based on race, as it clearly can't be explained by policy, but then I remember the irrational hatred of Clinton.
    i'm not the one who said he had never seen such hate.... that would be you.

    how do you explain your irrational hatred?... it is because the GOP is primarily white?.. or is your hate based more upon policy?

Not this close to the election cycle.

    It is important for the GOP to keep the nation in a nosedive. They believe that is their ticket to get their party back in power. I believe they are counting on the people to, once again, forget how the GOP got us in this quagmire to begin with as well as forgetting that since the voters gave the GOP a bump, last election, things have only gotten worse.

    They may be right.
    Yeah, they will probably take a cue from what the Dems did between 2006 and 2008.

    Right ??

    Exactly how did the Republican's block every move between 2008 and 2010 ?? I could have sworn that I read somewhere that the Dems controlled all three branches of the government during that time period.

    Maybe if they had spent a little more time on creating jobs and improving the economy rather than their healthcare bill that few people wanted, the country would be in better shape now.

    Did you somehow sleep through the 8 years before Obama and that was an imposter Captain America posting on this site?

    I never hated Bush and my objection to his policies was perfectly rational.

    About god damn time some compromise was offered.

    They ONLY offered compromise because they wanted to try and dampen Obamas upcoming speech and theyve been losing in the Polls....

    That is a great quote. Think I will use it sometime, except to change the name of the President to Obama.

    You're welcome to it, but it only works if you can make a rational argument to support your opposition to his policies.
