    Yes, that question has been answered. And it's the worst recovery because it's the worst recession.

    There isn't any recovery.

At a time when we should be reducing the government, we are expanding programs. When we should be facing our problems we make new ones. We take away state and individual rights, and forget that the very foundation of this country is based upon an individual's rights.

    The parade trampling on our rights didn't start in the last 4 years or the last 20...it has been going on for a better part of a decade. The country did a great job expanding civil liberties to all men and women, but at the same time it ebbed at the core of our rights.

    Wilson, T.Roosevelt, FDR, and all the progressives are mostly part of the big government movement.

    2011 GDP Growth was half of what it was in 2010 and you call that an improving economy? Was Bush back in the WH in 2011? The stimulus was supposed to be short term giving the economy and this President time to implement policy to make things better, he failed yet you call the results improving? What is it about liberalism that creates this kind of loyalty?

    This is all about leadership and you voted for someone without any leadership skills. The results therefore aren't surprising to those here who understand leadership. Those that don't think Obama is doing a good job and still blame others. You are in the latter category.

    All stats from BLS.
    I have a challenge for you, let's see if you're up to the task .... Ok?

    You point out that in Obama's first 36 months in office, the unemployment rate has increased from 7.8% to 8.3%, an increase of 0.5 percentage points.

    Now here's the challenge .... are you ready ... ? Name for me the Republican president who did better than that at the 36 month in their presidency. Just one name will do.

    Thanks in advance.

    Well do you lean more to the left or more to the right?
