    I'd say congress does a far superior job at dividing the nation than any president.

    All you've provided is vague rhetoric and zero ideas. If I used the same argument with the politician of your liking you'd laugh me out of this forum (and rightfully so). But if all you can provide is fuzzy feelings and zero specifics then it reveals you don't understand very clearly yourself what you don't like about Obama's leadership.

    The people of this country are very good at running businesses, the government is overregulating just about everything from labor to safety to health insurance and it's choking the economy to death, that's why I said they just need to get out of the way.

    If we had double digit inflation and double digit interest rates, it would be just like Jimmy Carter. Carter made me and my family the poorest we had ever been because we owed lots of money at 20%+ interest. I have managed to save some money since so if we had it now, I am not sure I would complain as much

    More vague rhetoric. You're clearly confused.

    What part is eluding you? The government in all branches is choking off productivity and the economic capabilities of the nation, there's nothing vague about it.

    Anybody could have typed the above. All you've heard is rhetoric from am radio, apparently, and rhetoric is all you can reproduce here.

    I'm really starting to think you don't understand what is meant by "specific." "Specific" isn't "stop being president" or "get out of the way." A gnat could provide that insight. And please put a little more thought into your response before you smash the "submit reply" icon and come back with the painfully predictable "if a gnat could get it, what's Obama's excuse" or some similar asshattery.

    Aren't you even just a little embarrassed that it's page six and not one person can provide a specific alternative leadership decision that Obama could have made? If the roles were reversed and Bush were being discussed I'd be cringing.

    Whatever the official inflation rate is, it doesnt take a lot of shopping to see prices have gone up 10-30% on most items over the past 5-8 years.
