    Ask Harry Reid and the MSM even though it doesn't matter. I won't be voting for your Representative and you won't be voting for mine thus what you think of mine is irrelevant

    Yes, which was my point. It was then that he fell out of favor with conservatives, as the polls show.

    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    He can be a leader of the people and use his position as President to alert the american public as to what is happening with the economy and why.

    Btw, the jobless rate decline is due to 3 things, seasonal hiring, more dropping out of the work force, and some growth. Those are in order of importance to the numbers.
    I think it is a miracle that faced with the economic problems he inherited and the road blocks erected by the lobbyist Grover Norquist lead republican party that our economy has not slipped into a depression

    It's easy to be a Monday morning quarter back, I hear nothing from the conservative party that leads me to believe that they are serious about job creation, let me rephase that I hear nothing from the conservative party that leads me to believe that they are serious about job creation in the USA

    You are just sticking to the conservative talking points you want people to believe that any President could turn the economy around in 3 years, it took years for our economy to get to the point of collapse and it's going to take many more years before and if it ever fully recovers

    They want to lift the drilling ban. That would create jobs.

    And "your" President doesn't have a clue how do to that. Keep buying the rhetoric and ignoring the results. Obama didn't inherit a thing that he didn't help create and only the truly brainwashed believe differently

    My President was elected by the people of the United States of America. You may be able to brainwash some I won't be one of them so keep trying to sell your rhetoric any one with an ounce of sense will understand that it takes time to slow down and turn around an economy that was on the verge of collapse especially when it has to done working against 279 republicans elected to represent the people that have taken a pledge to support the republican lobbyist Grover Norquist
