    Yes on the surface it looks like four choices, but in reality, it's just one.
    So far the only combination that has resulted in the BEST results has been Democrat President with a Republican Congress.

    What is YOUR opinion of the ONLY choice?

    That was my choice as well. Clinton was a prolific liar and philanderer, but his Presidency was defined by a Republican Congress that led the agenda to balance the Federal Budget for the first time in decades.

    I am stunned by anyone who thinks that this disaster has been a good thing.

    No, it has been about nine months and I am curious how many more months of this disaster do you think it takes to recognize it for what it is?

    I'll need to see some evidence of a disaster first.

    So you do not think that a $1.6 trillion deficit, a $12 trillion national debt, average monthly job losses of 200,000 for 12 months in excess of 200,000, 12 months of negative GDP, an unemployment rate of nearly 10% and foreclosures continuing at a high rate and more to come as being a disaster?

    Damn!

    none of the above. the US should ban the two parties that you are aligned with and start fresh. you have to many idiots in office that are entrenched because voters keep putting them back in that office.
    The flame that is between us could set every soul on fire. I would love to take that heat and let's fill the whole world with desire.

    Damn!
    Most of which cannot be blamed, at least entirely, on Obama. If these problems are still around in 3 years, you will be right, till then, it is too early to tell.
