    I see that GOP leadership you talk of on display every day.
    You tell me, Obama has stagnant economic growth under 2%, 22 million unemployed/under employed/discouraged workers, added 6.3 trillion to the debt in less than 5 years and has almost 50 million Americans on food stamps. Those numbers are July 2013 so you tell me how he is doing? Everyone of those numbers is worse than Bush's

    And the results are a frickin miracle considering EVERYTHING. How many straight months for private sector job growth? I know I shouldn't, but you looney tunes are never gonna give it a rest. Your nightmare is to think of how good things would be with a LOYAL opposition.

    Your career may be over but your ignorance of history and civics remain. Democrats took control of the Congress in the 2006 elections and kept control of the ENTIRE Congress until the election of 2010. There are two houses of Congress and the Senate rules allow for a filibuster of legislation. During part of Obama's first term it was filibuster proof but always in Democrat control. Obama got his legislative agenda through Congress and the results are all his.

    Impressive--I take it as a compliment that you would speak with me. Sincerely.

    I am not an economic expert, as Boehner as admitted many times. I always want to learn. It isn't all Obama or Dem that is the problem. I see things as better since 2008.

    Were you this excited when Bush had 52 straight months of private sector job growth and what does that really matter since there are 2 million fewer people employed today than when the recession began? That is the measurement that matters, that and the fact that most of those private sector jobs according to BLS are part time workers. The underemployment number is staggering so keep hanging your hat on the private sector job growth which just goes to show that brainwashing does work.

    There is nothing I have seen from you that would describe you as a centrist, you are a diehard liberal democrat that cannot admit it

    Okay, I'll bite again. Are we still shedding 4.4 million private-sector jobs in 6 short months such as at the end of Bush's term. Talk about losing tax revenue and the deficit. And of course the interest on all encumbered TAD is Obama's fault. I get it.

    What % increase for Obama in food stamps, especially for the Bush job-loss plunge? And compared to the % population growth? You don't have to.

    Apparently you have such low expectations, mine are much higher. We deserve better out of 6.3 trillion added to the debt. Can you not see what a failure Obama is. His first action as President was a stimulus program that didn't stimulate anything but debt and I showed you the numbers. When the stimulus failed what did Obama do next, Obamacare. Does that make any sense to you. How does Obamacare put people back to work? Why would any small business owner hire anyone not knowing the cost?

    Yes, we lost jobs under a Democrat Controlled Congress yet you blame it on Bush, that is civics challenged. Tax revenue is up and setting records, what isn't being collected are taxes from the 22 million unemployed/under employed/discouraged workers. Do you know what a discourage worker is? See if you can figure it out and then let me know how discouraged workers affect the unemployment rate? We have a spending problem and an unemployment problem not a revenue problem

    Therefore, more people are working now than at the end of the Bush/Cheney depression. I agree. Don't you love the bar graph showing Bush's jobs at the and Obama's for 5 years.

    You posted it on an open message board, so I responded...If you want a private conversation, then use the button.

    so he you were joking comment suggests your misreading my be because you mistook it as a reply to you.
    No, I mistook nothing...see, I can always tell with you when I get it right on the money Joe, because you start in with the misspellings, and broken typing...Next you'll blame it on your I-pad or something....WRONG AGAIN!
