    It's not only that he has insitutionalized it, he has personified it.

    The man had no single qualification for being President, not one. No experience at business, administration, foreign policy, nothing.

    How could the bar possible be lowered any further? When it is said that anyone in the US can grow up to be President, I'm not sure they had someone like BH Obama in mind, but he certainly does make that case.

    Gives me hope that my own candidacy might not be so implausible.

    You are incapable of arriving at any semblence of "factual truth" because your first priority is defending this President and the bankrupt ideology that he's beholden to.

    Who's fault will it be in 2015 when we're still struggling with a shrinking economy and record dependence ?

    Its the most alien concept to you Obama supporters that investors and Corporations and small bussinesses could actually be responding to a Preqsident who taken a threatening tone with them and has passed laws that mandate their expenditures.

    Oh but no way that has anything to do with the record amount of money the are currently sitting on.

    Some of you are so deprived of any integrity you actually blame this on Bush.

    Thanks for you partisan uninformed opinion, but the reasons are complex, for one thing Bush had the advantage of a good number of public sector jobs, whereas under President Obama those numbers are shrinking because of the loss of income taxes at the local level.

    Labor force is a problem of demographics, the baby boomers are retiring and more and young adults are choosing to get an education.

    Ahem. You need to check your own link. It shows labor force participation among 65-and-older (baby boomers these days) to be up, not down. Participation generally is down because BHO has discouraged job seekers.

    Yeah, I've made that mistake before, but the rate for college age people are way down (-17%). And yet again, you make a partisan unsubstantiated claim. Also, a person can be considered employed by working as little as 1 hour a week and volunteer jobs are also counted.

    You keep blaming the current economic meltdown on "baby-boomers" and a loss of public sector jobs.
    And young people "getting an education"

    What you folks are willing to do to to make sure you never have to say "I was wrong" just blows my mind.


    Your every post so far from you, has been a mistake.

    Your lack of comprehension does not serve as a rebuttal...

    No, your standards are much lower than mine. In fact, you have just one standard -- vote for which ever candidate runs as the Republican. That's it. Doesn't matter what their record is, doesn't matter if they served time for raping children. They put an "R" after their name and they can count on your vote.

    And the evidence of that is in the honesty of your admission that you didn't vote for Bush because he wasn't on the ballot. Despite nearly doubling unemployment, despite nearly doubling the debt, despite crashing the housing markets, credit markets, and stock market, despite giving the U.S.A. its first trillion dollar deficit, despite spiraling the economy into the Great Recession ...

    ... the ONLY reason you didn't vote for him is because his name was not on the ballot.

    I can only hope you're capable of understanding why I give zero weight to the opinion of someone who would have voted for Bush for an insane fifth time if only he put his name on the ballot again after what he did to this country. But I'm not really banking on it.
