    He's killed so many jobs, I don't know when we'll ever recover.
    Your wrong when President Obama took over job losses started to go down;

    The President never really has that much affect over the economy. It is Congress. And frankly Congress for many years have done a terrible job, which lead us to where we are today.

    The job losses bottomed out. It's not because of anything that goofball did.

    we know that his claims that his massive waste of public funds would keep unemployment below 8.5% was a bright and shining lie

    that's what we get for electing an incompetent pretty boy with less experience than a "bimbo from alaska"

    Remember neither Bush nor Obama had or has unlimited powers, so I think its time to look at the big picture rather than focusing all policies on one candidate that has to say what people want to hear, and in the end has very little power.

    In my opinion the recession started during Bushes terms because of his influence and the recession is obviously not getting any better under the leadership of Obama either.

    yes

    of course he doesn't care about us, look how he told us all to shut up, look how he asked us to rat out our fishy neighbors, look how he sues all of us in arizona, look how he wants to move ksm to manhattan despite our repeated expressions of NO (let alone new yorkers') simply because he knows best...

    of course he doesn't care about us, look how he CRAMMED health care down our wide awake windpipes, how just 24 hours before bart stupak switched, allowing for passage, he was willing to DEEM the damn thing...

    look how he gives himself a B+ on oprah (A- when health care passes), look how he vacations and schmoozes, goes to copenhagen to get the olympics, off to oslo to nab the nobel...

    it's TWO things---the ECONOMY and the MAN

    one's a disaster, the other a disgrace

    Exactly... If I wasn't sure before I was after that. I also think the slow response was intentional. My guess is he wanted it to be even a bigger disaster than it was. Then he could get more people in favor of shutting down drilling and passing cap and tax.
    I don't know why he cares though, he'll do what he wants anyway. The more the people are against something, the more he favors it.

    i am astonished that for the third time today i must point out fundamentally that THIS president as head of THIS particular party in power in parliament is RESPONSIBLE for passage of major legislations that WOULD NOT have passed had he not twisted and bought and threatened, ie, had he not acted like a party leader

    it happened right in front of everyone: THIS president DIRECTED the members of THIS party to walk THIS plank

    the avoidance of responsibility around here is really most unleaderly-like

    which is also part of the problem
