    State of the Union: The Public Weighs In on 10 Key Issues
    Pero, do you agree with the numbers cited in the Gallup poll? Some, such as immigration, seem a little bit out of line to me. And why does Obama want to use bonds for his MyRa? Smart investors are getting out of bonds, from what I've read. Aren't other countries not buying what they used to? Maybe not, since they are getting anxious about our inability to cut spending.

    And the Obama recovery is hurting millions and millions more, not much different, high unemployment, discouraged workers, under employed, long term part time employed

    You said the stimulus didn't work. It did.

    What specific Obama policy is causing the numbers of discouraged workers and other categories you listed here?
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    I agree. That's why extremism has to be stamped out.

    Do you have any ideas?

Unlike you I know what happened in 2008 and 2009 and the results today are terrible compared to what they would have been with good leadership. Obama can do one thing well and that is campaign placing blame. Too bad there are too many people like you who buy the rhetoric.
    In a word, crap. You couldn't run a 7/11.

    I don't know Pol. Immigration is sort of a side issue that comes to the forefront when other issues die down. As for buying our treasury bonds, China is still doing so but at a slower pace. The low interest rate on them really doesn't make them all that attractive or so I have been told. But to make them more attractive, interest rates must go up and thus so too will the payments on the interest. I is a dang if you do and a dang if you don't. But I am not financial guru, so that question would be best answered by others.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    That is your opinion=. By what standards did the stimulus work? What reputable agency captures saved jobs? I understand you want to believe this but the question is why do you ignore the data?
