    No, he made a logical statement that helped make your comment look illogical. Not that he needed much help.

    Repeating the same stats he does not understand is not really discussing intricacies pf economic policies.

    And about those sources, any sign of them yet?

    These are ALL comparisons. Thank you for proving my point.

    Oh boy, you picked a very bad time to misrepresent numbers again. Sheik Yerbuti is here. You are in big trouble again. I'll give you a couple of aspirin after he is done with you. Call it compassionate Conservatism.

    You keep repeating those statistics, but what you fail to realize is just because those things happened UNDER Obama's tenure doesn't mean he is COMPLETELY RESPONSIBLE for those numbers. To blame obama for $4 gas is moronic.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Jobs Lost 2.3 million jobs lost and all that money wasted yet Obama wants another four years and has your vote. Says a lot about the Obama supporter
    Sorry, presidents do not create jobs. Demand for goods and services creates jobs.
