It really is hard to deal with people who lack basic logic and common sense.
    Wow, only 14.6 trillion dollars, that statistic is only 6 months old. GO OBAMA!

    Sorry, Con, but there is no way you can claim accuracy when you post, "38% approval rating today," but his JAR is not actually 38% today. You could just admit you were wrong, but accepting responsibility for your mistakes is above your paygrade.

    As a single member of Congress, his was but one vote among 100. Again, you fail here. Bush, whose 1 vote among 1, is responsible for the bills he signs into law, just as Clinton was before him. Not to mention, Obama didn't even vote on the bills which led to our financial destruction. Those bills were passed before Obama was even a U.S. Senator.

No leader can delegate responsibility, onlyl authority.
    Yet more bull****. The truth is, Obama is promoting economic plans. Some may disagree with them, one is expected to get killed in the Senate any moment now, but to say, "he has no economic plan other than promoting class warfare," is a lie as obvious as your growing nose.

You continue to buy the rhetoric and ignore the substance. It has been over 2 1/2 years and the results generated have been posted over and over again. You claim that no President could do better with the hand he was dealt, Reagan did and did a much better job with a pro growth economic policy. Still waiting for the Obama economic policy?
    We'll see in 13 months from now, won't we.

    Doesn't mean a thing to you, does it? Too big of a number for you to even comprehend.

    He does that regularly. But ultimately, all he is doing is undermining his own position by doing so. Others see it as well, just as you did. But I keep posting because there are also others who do read them.

    Yes it does it means something that you do not stand by what you say and try to wiggle out of it. And I quote:
