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.
    Dude, it's obvious. Stop with the damn "talk radio" schtick, it's ECON 101, it's any honest MBA program, it's in the newspapers.

    Forget it. You really don't understand what "specific" means.

    When you're argument boils down to "it's obvious" it's time to step back and rethink your position, because if it were "obvious" you'd be able to clarify it.

    Alot of that is tied to transportation/fuel rates, some of it is the cost of Obamacare and the hit profit margins are taking from that and depending on industry some EPA regs will cause that as well.

    Ends up having the same effect though, don't it? Your money doesn't go as far.

    yeah, just have to take advantage of other things that have presented themselves with this administration, for instance:

    We owned 2 rental properties before Obama, we now own 12. Foreclosures, more people renting instead of buying has made this a lucrative rental market.

    Okay, the old stuff isn't working. Let's try something else.

    You, Lamidrighter, have just been elected president. It is your first day in office, and hoo boy, is our country a mess. No confidence in the market, blue collar and white collar jobs are being sent en masse to other countries, North Korea is belligerent, China overtaking us in the world market, our infrastructure is deteriorating and our educational system is in shambles.

    Your first, second and third acts as president are.....

    ....aaaaand go.

    But then you have the swing effect of real estate jobs dissipating, then you still have to flip properties so the values have to stabilize, and of course the ripple effects of unemployment change every single market.

    First act is to repeal the NLRB, EPA loses all regulatory power to be deferred back to congress, EPA may only enforce through warrant. Second act, remand health and safety issues to the individual states. Third act, engage in tax reform debate. Fourth act is a complete audit of medical, tort, and insurance law in the U.S. with the goal of streamlining.

    What else ya got?

    We are lucky to have fairly low unemployment and a college in town, so renters are plentiful
