    Are you making excuses for him, or has he been so successful that racism is the only possible reason for opposing him?

    That idiot has already served two terms -- he can't run for reelection.

    Look dude, the economy sucks no matter how you manipulate the numbers to make your God look better...The unemployed, and under employed in this country is closer to a 15% number, than the fake 8.2% lie now touted by Obama and his criminal band of communist sympathizers.

    Um, it's not me saying it -- I'm just repeating what the economists are saying. Read the article -- it makes sense. It doesn't mean that the numbers are invalid. It just means that the seasonal adjustments couldn't quite account for the extremely unusual winter season.

    "[D]espite the hand-wringing over the weather, economists seem to agree that the fundamentals of the recovery are solid. Bob Baur, global chief economist for Principal Global Investors, said he believes that the second half of the year will pick up steam as state and local governments enjoy rebounds in tax revenue and layoffs slow down."

    Nah, you only get two terms. As the man himself said, "fool me once, shame on, shame on you. Fool me -- you can't get fooled again."

    The fundamentals of the economy are a fiscal policy which creates a $1.3 trillion deficit ( about 9% of GDP) and monetary policy of negative real interest rates.

    You call those a solid basis of building an economy???

    this thread is an excellent illustration of why i became an independent. as a strict partisan, one spends half the time carrying water and the other half rooting against economic recovery because it is temporarily politically convenient to do so.

    What would a thread be without a liberal pulling the race card...

    Does lying to prop up a failed president ever get old for you?

    Jobs recovery suffers setback in March - Yahoo! Finance

    By Lucia Mutikani
    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Employers hired far fewer workers in March than in previous months, keeping the door open for the Federal Reserve to provide more monetary support for a still sluggish economy.
    Would you prefer the half a million job loss per month we had in 2008?
