    Nice try but a waste of time, some here are never going to admit that they screwed up with their vote nor will they actually address the Obama record.

    Obama economic results in 2011,
    .4% GDP and 1.3% GDP growth in 2011(bea.gov)
    25+ million unemployed or under employed Americans in 2011(bls.gov)
    2.6 million fewer jobs(bls.gov)
    4.2 trillion added to the debt in less than 3 years(U.S. Treasury Site)
    Downgrade of the U.S. credit rating(S&P)
    Rising Misery index 7.83 to 12.97 (The United States Misery Index By Year)
    38-41% JAR and well over 50-55% disapproval ratings(Gallup)
    I love talking history though:

    Reagan GDP Changes of -3.2%, -4.9%, and -6.4%.
    Bush GDP Changes of 1.8%, 1.3%, -3.7% and -8.9%
    Under Reagan in 1981: 19.33
    Under Bush in August 2008: 11.47
    Unemployment under Reagan 1982: 9.7%
    Unemployment under Bush (beginning 2009): 9.3%
    Number of unemployed under Bush rose 22,000,000 from 2000-2008
    From 1981-1982, 1,126,000 jobs were lost by Reagan.
    In 1983, after losing over 1 million jobs, having over 9% unemployment, and posting losses in GDP, Reagan's approval rating was 40%.
    In 2008, after starting multiple wars, driving up the deficit, and seeing the recession begin to start, president George W. Bush's approval rating was under 30%.
    President Bush racked up 2.779 trillion in debt in 2 years as president.

    Did you miss the whole economy crashing thing when Obama took office? It was kind of a big deal as well...

    Yes, I did as the economy started into recession in December 2007 and Obama didn't take office until January 21, 2009. We came out of recession in June 2009. Bush inherited a recession that began in March 2001 and Reagan inherited a declining economy with high inflation and rising unemployment that put us in recession in July 1981. Bush tax cuts didn't pass until June 2001 and Reagan's economic policy didn't pass until August 1981 whereas Obama's passed in February 2009. Just a ittle bit of history for you since you like history.

    I think if you reach 23k posts in a year you should get forum ban.
    I'm coming to see that no matter what law we regulate, be it the stand your ground act, there is never an objective morally right answer to any morale question; in fact, since there are multiple objectively right answers to every moral question that leaves us with a lot of grey area and a lot of black area (not in the racial since).

    Is that a joke? Unemployment didn't bottom out until Oct '09 and the GDP was ailing until then as well. You're a funny guy.

    Reagan GDP Changes of -3.2%, -4.9%, and -6.4%.
    Bush GDP Changes of 1.8%, 1.3%, -3.7% and -8.9%
    Under Reagan in 1981: 19.33
    Under Bush in August 2008: 11.47
    Unemployment under Reagan 1982: 9.7%
    Unemployment under Bush (beginning 2009): 9.3%
    Number of unemployed under Bush rose 22,000,000 from 2000-2008

    Reagan GDP Changes of -3.2%, -4.9%, and -6.4%.
    Bush GDP Changes of 1.8%, 1.3%, -3.7% and -8.9%
    Misery Index Under Reagan in 1981: 19.33
    Misery Index Under Bush in August 2008: 11.47
    Unemployment under Reagan 1982: 9.7%
    Unemployment under Bush (beginning 2009): 9.3%
    Number of unemployed under Bush rose 22,000,000 from 2000-2008
    From 1981-1982, 1,126,000 jobs were lost by Reagan.
