    Obama had driven up the misery index by 4.2%.

    Bush had driven up poverty by 12.4%.
    Obama had driven up poverty by 14.4%.

    Bush lost the Twin Towers.
    Obama killed the ****er who financed it.

    Bush had deployed troops into a country that had not attacked us.
    Obama brought them home.

    G'head, keep deluding yourself that Bush did a better job than Obama.
    The choice never was Bush vs Obama and your use of percentage change is misguided at best. People don't live on percentage change they live on actual revenue. I guess only in the liberal world is 11 million unemployed a good thing because the percentage change is a lower. I guess a misery index of over 10 is better than one over 9 because it is a lower percentage change but never mind that 500,000 people dropped out of the labor force and weren't counted as unemployed. Yes, your percentage change usage makes you look foolish and shows your true liberal compassion.

    Bush still spent more than Clinton and you voted for Bush twice. Sorry, but again you have ZERO credibility on that one. Try again Con.

    No try necessary, no conservative would ever vote for Obama over McCain or Romney and I didn't. My credibility with you is irrelevant, couldn't care less.

    I am an investor - that's what I do.

    And the reality is that not counting people who gave up looking for work because they cannot find a job as unemployed is misleading. They are unemployed and should be counted as such.

    This government skewing of unemployment and inflation numbers is (IMO) designed to allow it to spend more money and to look better doing it then they are.

    I am simply pointing out facts.
    No, you're not pointing out "facts." You're guesstimating. You are guessing that of those who left the work force, were forced out. There is nothing factual about guessing.

    Nice excuse, still means you are either naive in your thinking or just lying in regards to your conservative "principles". If everyone voted by their principles we wouldn't have the mess we have now, we wouldn't have the GOP or Dems. You blame others when you voted for the man twice that spent like a drunken sailor and then criticize others for doing the same thing you did. Pathetic on your part.

    Still waiting for the conservative economic policy Obama has proposed that would cause a conservative to vote for him?

    You and your ilk have no problem exposing your ignorance daily.

    I see you refuse to do any research on the "Gorelick Wall".

    The US Intelligence operation known as AbleDanger named 4 of the 9/11 hijackers.

    Clinton strengthened FISA and Jamie Gorelick went about the bussiness of installing walls between inteligence agencies that crippled the intelligence gathering and allowed the hi jackers to go unchecked.
    You're still wrong. I know about the Gorelick wall. It's the rightwing talking point that refuses to die. The fact of the matter is, Bush was still warned despite the Gorelick wall. Bush still ignored members from Clintons's administration who were trying to warn him. Bush still did absolutely nothing to prevent the attack.

    Excuses excuses excuses. You did the same thing you are now blaming others doing. Hypocritical at best. You have ZERO credibility and people can see that. BTW, I thought you said Romney was going to be president? Oh yeah, wrong again.

    I am for kicking them all out of office and starting over, the problem is that isn't going to happen so you vote for the closest to your ideology at the national level and vote to change the system from the ground up. It serves no purpose to vote for someone who has no change of winning or getting anything done at the national level until you change those in Congress that will not implement sound economic policies.
