    I asked you a simple question, do you believe the GDP of this country is 13.6 trillion dollars?

    But Obama has been in office since Jan. '09 - that is how he should be judged.

    And since he took over, unemployment is worse, average housing prices are worse, number of Americans on food stamps is much worse, the national debt is MUCH worse.

    Poverty, housing, jobs and debt...those are all biggies...and all of them have gotten worse on his watch.

    But you can't nominate a candidate that has any ideas that will improve on what Obama has done. You can't find one western nation that is doing better than the U.S. either. We are Thai fastest growing western nation and it is thanks to Obama putting a lid on austerity measures that threw Europe back into recession. Romney's policies are sure to do the same for us.
    You also can't explain why the Dow went up over 200 points on the news of 163,000 jobs created, I guess they are all drinking the "Obama kool-aid" too. It was good news to them that is for sure.

    And yet....what is the GOP/con solution?...lower taxes for the upper quintile.....which will not cause greater demand.

    It is not a supply side problem.

    And none of how much you go on and on and on about would change anything. I am not talking about Obama or how you secretly like him and feel the need to convince yourself not to. I do not blame a single person for our economic successes or failures. It is hilarious to me that if I sit here and state that the economy has gotten better in the last 2 years how many of you people come out and get defensive, assume it is an endorsement for Obama, and suddenly I am a liberal. You people are idiotic. None of that, and I do mean none of that refutes my claim that the economy has improved since 2010. Since you want to bring it up

    Like AMERICA has raised our national debt by almost 6 trillion in just 4 yrs. AMERICAN Unemployment has been over 8% for over 40 months, there are more poor IN OUR COUNTRY NOW IN RECENT MEMORY. AMERICAN HAS HAD ITS CREDIT downgraded, on and on I can go.

    Helped you out a bit there. Obama does not have complete control over any of these things. Our government and the people of this country are ruining it. Not just Obama, but every one in office is failing, and the American people are making this crap worse. YOU are as much to blame for the crap you listed above as Obama is.

    Pretty simple, Wall Street is expecting Bernanke to print more money to stimulate this poor economy. Thought someone as smart as you think you are would understand that. Great to see the same people who demonized Wall Street during the Bush years when it went over 14000 excited about it now.
