    Would you please address that post I posted?
    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).

Of course, Obama doesn't get a bye from you, but that's because we all know you don't actually care about the numbers. The numbers I posted were in response to your latest 2011 Q1 and Q2 numbers for Obama:

    2002 Q2 - 2.1%
    2002 Q3 - 2.0%
    2002 Q4 - 0.1%
    2003 Q1 - 1.7%

    vs

    2011 Q1 - 0.4%
    2011 Q2 - 1.3%

    Why are you mad at one and not the other? They are nearly identical.

    For future reference, specify said accusations. Say: "As a result of Bush being a fairly incompetent president, many people decided to vote Democrat instead of Republican."

    you don't think that diverting to the Bush record and distorting it isn't trolling? All you want to do, and I don't blame you, is divert from the disaster in the WH and the fact that you voted for him. Trying to justify your vote based upon what Bush did isn't working.

    Re: Republicans block Obama jobs bill

    Look, kid, your buddy here confirmed my GDP numbers and BLS shows a 2.6 million NET JOB loss thus no net private sector job gain therefore the charts are distorted and really out of context. do you understand what NET means? I will not disagree that jobs were created in the private sector, just not enough to create a net job gain because of the jobs lost in the private sector. You don't seem to understand that net means after deductions or jobs lost.

    It isn't relevant if you believe that makes Bush a bad president as well, but you won't do that even with it staring you in the face. You have to admit, it was pretty nice when it came full circle and Bush had the same numbers as Obama right in a row. But hey, just keep hitting ctrl + v with those useless statistics you keep touting, and those of us with the ability to read those numbers will keep not giving a damn.
