    Complete and utter bull****. Presidents are like middle inning pitchers. They come into the game inheriting the score and men on base from the previous pitcher and they leave the game for their replacement.

    What righties are trying to do blame Obama for being the pitcher in a game he's losing 10-5, while ignoring that the pitcher before him gave up 9 runs in 2 innings and left the bases loaded for the next pitcher to deal with.


    I say "trying" because you did try, but y'all failed. Fortunately, enough Americans knew the score to re-elect Obama.

    Sure, if you want to ignore what each of them inherited. But that just takes me back to my baseball analogy.

    You're just in denial, trying to justify to yourself your defense of failure. Failure that is causing hardship and suffering.

    Obama is no more a failure than President Bush was. When Obama took office the economy was headed into the toilet; millions of jobs were lost before he became president.

    The recession ended years ago. It's BHO's "recovery" that's killing us.

    Remarkable isn't it, he took office on January 21, 2009, didn't get his economic program implemented until late 2009 and we came out of recession in June 2009. What I find more amzing is the fact that when the recession began in December 2007 there were 146 million Americans working and the labor force was 153.9 million. Today after adding 6 trillion to the debt there are 143 million working Americans and a labor force of 155.0 million. Now that is a real liberal success story

    Economic failure?

    When Obama came into Office, GDP was negative 8.9%. 2.6 million jobs were lost in the 3 months leading to his presidency. The stock market was nose diving and the economy was crashing. Now, though barely positive, GDP is still positive (compared to -8.9%). 19,000 jobs lost over the last 3 months (compared to 2.6 million). 2 of the 3 major indexes of the stock market are at all-time highs and the economy is doing far better than it was a little over 4 years ago when Bush left office.

    The term recession is relative to GDP, not employment.

    You really need to get over your BDS and realize that you are comparing Obama to the worst President you know and not doing well at it. Your numbers are distorted and out of context as usual. You will let me know when the labor market reflects the true population growth as well as when we get back to 146 million working Americans? And of course it only cost 6 plus trillion in added debt to generate those numbers. How many more can Obama get to drop out of the labor force?

    Yep, .4% GDP growth last quarter is a booming economy. How many more can Obama get to drop out of the labor force to get that unemployment rate down to the Bush levels?
