    Nope, only socialist are "pissed" about the rich. Socialist never liked those people who broke a sweat and became successful.

    BTW:
    The recession officially ended in June of 2009. And it was liberal policies that caused the housing meltdown that led to a financial crisis with in the financial institutions. Basically it was the "Urban Redevelopment Act" and ACORN who caused the recession.

    It was Obama's lack of knowledge how the free market capitalism works and spending almost a trillion dollars paying off the unions and protecting civil service union jobs instead of putting money in to the private sector to put Americans back to work why the economy hadn't fully recovered as fast as it should have. Obama was more concerned with passing Obama Care instead of the recovery of the economy.

    Actually, most of the recession was caused by a company called Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems. The housing bubble and subsequent crash was crafted by them, with lots and lots of support through banking deregulation. That deregulation began in the 1980s under Reagan, and was heavily championed by congressional Republicans. They continued to champion it through the 90s, and Bill Clinton is certainly culpable for allowing it. The same trends continued in the 2000's, given a lot of support by the Bush administration. It was letting the "free market" run off unchecked, and removing not only a lot of the rules that kept them from insane amount of corruption, but also the oversight that held them accountable to the few rules left. From 1997 onwards, MERS engaged in just about every duplicitous banking practice possible and swindled billions, if not trillions of dollars. The owners of MERS made fortunes while honest, hardworking Americans lost their life savings and their homes. That is to say, those owners, through their grossly criminal actions, supported by primarily Republican legislation, took those citizens' life savings and their homes. And I'll bet you've never even heard of this company, have you?

    And you'll have to explain some decent reason why private sector jobs are somehow more important than public sector ones. The point is to get people employed, earning salaries, purchasing products and services, and paying taxes. What difference does it make if they're paid by a private or public entity?

    Actually the housing bubble bursting was because of the Urban Reinvestment Act and leftist organizations like ACORN who forced banks to issue sub-prime loans to people who weren't qualified. The banks were threaten of being labeled as racist if they didn't approve a home loan to unqualified home buyers.

    When the Bush administration tried to get a bill passed in the Senate that would require more government oversight of Freddie and Fannie, then Senator Obama filibuster in the Senate killing the bill. As Rep. Barney Frank said, Freddie and Fannie are in great shape.

    Not execute the WILL of the president. I think Obama never even READ the Constitution!
    I think your right...I just got caught up in all the leftist denial that has taken place about the scandals and needed to tap into that mindset with an absurd post similar to this absurd thread bringing a poll into this administration's mess, like it somehow vindicates them. Obama rapes his dog...well let's bring in a poll. Obama farts on the prime minister of England. Let's bring in a poll. Obama shoots tea partiers. Let's bring in a poll because as long as the majority accept his antics in a poll its ok???
