    Your own words suggest otherwise

    I will keep pointing out his lies. And unlike Obama, I never lied. I said what he said, and I proved my points with numerous links.

    Face it. You lost this one. Badly, I might add. But at least your cluelessness was on full display.

    I feel much much better now.

    He's an incompetent boob and he was caught here.

Or maybe that the number of separate vacations the first family takes has boosted tourism employment?

    So come on, rip off your Obama-girl t-shirt, your Yes we Can shorty shorts, and tell us just what it is we are conceding as your hero's contribution to the economy.

    I've never heard anyone make that claim. What I have heard is challenges to how the numbers are calculated and requests for what the President has done to accomplish this.

    Good for all but 94 million Americans it seems.
    That doesn't mean anything, that's not quite 30% of the country. Nothing to see here.

    Nice try but Congress has a approval rating of 16% vs. Obama's 48% so that is a fail. Besides according to Republicans, business optimism comes from the President. Did they lie about that?
    On a side note...I am quite optimistic about Alberta. I think they will lead the way to a cleaner and more environmentally responsible Canada.
