For they know that America moves forward only when we do so together, and that the responsibility of improving this union remains the task of us all."

    Which goes to show that results don't matter to far too many and that is why this country is in the shape it is in. People love the rhetoric, isn't it time to focus on the results?

    I call the results today a disaster and we are in worse shape today than when we went into the recession of 2007. Unlike you results matter to me, not rhetoric. Debt 16.5 trillion dollars, over 22 million unemployed/under employed/discouraged workers, record numbers on food stamps and other taxpayer assistance. Apparently that bodes well for the poorly informed.

    Yep, the biggest recession in 70 years has longterm effects. Why does that perplex you? Oh, I get it, you want to pretend economic history started yesterday. I guess if I had Bush and his failed conservative policies to defend, I'd take that knownothing position too. So I feel your pain.

    Sorry but you haven't proven that this was a worse recession than 81-82 and since you probably weren't around then you never will. You are someone who buys the rhetoric and ignores the actual data and results. Unlike you I understand how our economy works and what makes it work, people not govt.

    You need proof that the last recession was the largest in 70 years? Now we see your problem. You're posting about things you haven't even bothered to learn basic facts about. Typical conservative knownothingism.

    Perhaps you need some remedial schooling on the Bush Meltdown before posting about it.

    Those Govs are very popular because they're getting positive results.
    Outside of letting the Seals kill Bin Laden, you'd be hard pressed to find a measurable Obama success ....
