    Do you make up **** just for the hell of it? During 95% of his campaign, the Dow was still above 11K, the unemployment rate was between 4 and 6 percent, the economy was slipping, but GDP was mostly postive and the NBER had not yet declared we were in a recession. That is the responsibility Obama was preparing to take responsibility for. It wasn't until about 6 weeks before the election that the wheels came off the bus and by then, Obama had already been nominated by the Democrat party. It wasn't until after he was elected that the NBER revealed we were in a recession and not until he was preparing top move into the White House when GDP fell to -6.8% (later revised to -8.9%). His campaign started in January, 2007. To claim he campaigned on fixing the mess that would ultimately unfold between mid September '08 and January '09, is beyond ludicrous.

    So what? 2 years into Reagan's-R first term, his results had worsened from when he began.

    Conservative: "Four more years!!"

    2 years into Bush Sr's-R first term, his results had worsened from when he began.

    Conservative: "Four more years!!"

    2 years into Clinton's-D first term, his results had improved from when he began.

    Conservative: "Kick Clinton out and let Dole in!!"

    2 years into Bush Jr's-R first term, his results had worsened from when he began.

    Conservative: "Four more years!!"

    Look at that, Con! You don't give a **** about results. All you care about is the letter that comes after the president's name.

    This coming from the civics genyass who thinks Democrats were in charge of the Senate when the recession began in March, 2001.

    Oh? And what do you suggest Democrats could have done in 2007 which would have saved us the from the financial meltdown from the toxic loans doled out years earlier?

    WTF are you talking about now, Con? You think there's a person reading this who doesn't know you'd vote for someone with even less experience than Obama if they were running as a Republican??

    You don't give a **** about experience.

    You don't give a **** about results.

    You don't give a **** about anything except the party they run for

    Sheik, you absolutely nailed it. I tip my hat to you sir!
    The GOP National Committee should change their emblem from an elephant to a condom. A condom stands up to inflation, halts production, destroys the next generation, protects pricks, and gives one a sense of security and safety while screwing others.

    Foreclosure Rate Hits Historic High

    The percentage of U.S. mortgages entering foreclosure in the first three months of the year was the highest in more than 50 years, according to the Mortgage Bankers Association.

    There's a word which describes people who say one thing but then act differently from their words. It escapes me at the moment but it rhymes with rip-a-zit.
