Second of all, you attacked Obama from the LEFT for not giving you a handout (i.e. you wanted a COLA when the cost of living hadn't increased according to the statistical calculations).

    Here's some advice for you: If you want to be better off than you were 3 years ago, then worry about how to make your OWN life better, rather than how Obama impacts your life. There's nothing you can really do about that, aside from voting/campaigning for someone else.
    And the truly comical part is that if a conservative had said those exact same words, people here would call that conservative a heartless and out of touch prick.

    Ive very happy to see so many liberal folks doing well and espousing the virtue of hard work and personal reliance as the keys to success. You need to do a better job of spreading that message around!

    Nothing wrong with advocating political policies that you think will help people in general; the President and Congress can and should push for policies that will make us better off. But in general, that's an aggregate effect from 300 million people. Unless your life circumstances are somewhat unusual (e.g. you're in prison or active-duty military or relying exclusively on government assistance), the impact that they have on you personally is probably very very small.

    The way I look at it is like this: The identity of the president (within the realm of plausible options) plays a small role in the overall way our federal government operates. The way our federal government operates (within the realm of plausible options) plays a small role in the overall state of the economy. The state of the economy plays a small role in my personal finances. And my personal finances play a small role in my personal well-being.

    So the president is many steps removed from my personal well-being. If any president has ever had any impact on my life, it's been pretty minor and unnoticeable.

    People who did not plan for their retirement would not be in any better shape no matter who the president is.

    Navy, if you had restructured the poll to ask whether or not I think the United States is better off since Obama, I would have replied "no." I am voting for the presumptive Republican nominee, after all.

    Whether or not it does is immaterial,that was not the premise of your original post.

    There was no requirement of us to reflect how people feel on the national level.

    You asked a question,people answered it,and now you move the goalposts because you don't like the answers.

    Since you won't congratulate those of us who managed to prosper these past few years due to hard work and wise investments,allow me to congratulate you for your planning and foresight.

    I know...and agree. What you are espousing is a very JFK esque form of Liberalism.

    Redress at least 50% of the Liberals in DP are ashamed to be identified as such. They call themselves private, other, Independent, moderate, etc when they are really Liberals........They try and hide it but their posts give them away. Sadly there are even a couple who claim to be Conservative who are closet Libs. That is why the polls are not closer in DP......
