    Unemployment has gone up, housing prices have continued down and we have lost our AAA credit rating all on Obamas watch. He ran for president telling us he could fix the economy and he has failed miserably. Time to head to the locker room buddy, 3 years 3 strikes, batter up.

    That's what I was saying, he might have just lost. Once again, reading isn't the strong suit of the right wing.

    If debt and jobs were that closely related, the job marked would have completely fallen apart when Reagan was President. Obama didn't invent deficits, that horse has been out of the stable for a long time.

    As President Obama was saying in comparisin to the public sector, the private sector is doing fine. Now the right can retire 57 states, the prez made a new gaffe.

    Just hours after President Obama declared the private sector was "doing fine" -- a comment from which he later backed away -- one of the nation's major credit rating agencies affirmed neither the private nor public sector was flourishing.
    Standard & Poor’s affirmed its long-term credit rating on the United States at AA+ and said its outlook remains negative.

    The credit agency made the announcement after Obama's said Friday morning that the private sector is "doing fine" and that the GOP Congress is slowing down the economy. It was immediately pounced on by Mitt Romney and other Republican leaders, resulting in the president backpedaling by the afternoon.

    The prez is stcking by his so called "gaff". In his walking back attempt he said "of course the economy isn't doing just fine". He never said a word about the private sector that he specificaly said was doing just fine while it was the gov employees that were hurting. The walking back headlines were lib medias spin trying to get their prez off the hook.

    We are now at levels of debt, and deficit, relative to GDP, that are far beyond anything Reagan, or any other President. Your statement was completely unfounded.

    "That closely related"? How closely related did i say they were?

    The fact is that Reagan was able to turn the economy around, just as Bush did and just as Romney did, both with the debt in Michigan and the Olympic Games. Obama has done none of this. Instead the debt is increasing at record levels, unemployment has increased and his promises of improvement have proved as baseless and futile as any of his other promises.

    The man is a dud, Release him from his responsibilities to allow him the time to write more autobiographies.

    Close, but not quite the levels we reached immediately following WW2.
