    almost every year my income goes up

    of course my arthritic knees are getting worse

    its about a draw

    I think the country is in about the same shape as it was three years ago

    I am not to badly hurt by this because I planned for my retirement with the possibility of never getting SS......To get it is a pleasant surprise.....I worry about my shipmates who did not do the planning I did and under Hussein Obama and his Administration a lot of them are hurting..............

    10 to 5 votes along partisan lines.........I have seen polls on the national level its close to 70% saying they are worse off and are not happy with the direction this country is going...........It shows how far DP is off on the issue and that the left in here just love Hussein Obama and believe he could do no wrong............It also shows that no matter how much the Mods say that DP is pretty much split GOP and DEMS that is far from true.....

    Personally, I am. In terms of the country as a whole, I'd say no.

    It's a brilliant campaign line, but sometimes, depending on who you ask, you get strange answers.

    Personally yes I'm much better off in just about everyway possible. Plus the country isn't in a full blown depression so that's something.

    Sir...

    Your question was "are you better off then you were 3 years ago".

    Not "Do you like Obama"

    Not "Will you vote for Obama".

    If people are better off, they're better off, doesn't have to have anything to do with Obama...

    Would you prefer there be less people better off?

    Sounds kinda.... socialist

    He's just trying to play off the old Reagan slogan, which is ridiculous because Romney isn't Reagan and the 80's will never happen again just like any decade will never be the same as another.

    Yep, and the funny part is the way the GOP has gone, Reagan would be considered way too liberal to get the GOP nomination if he were alive today.

    No, I am not, though I'm not bad off, either.

    Reasons are complex, and not necessarily totally related to our current President*. Possibly partially, but not totally.

    *- Guessing the OP's hidden meaning based on past posts and time frame of 3 years.
