Really?

From 1983-2007, the U.S. economy grew by 3.3% a year, adding 46 million jobs.

Obama is the cause. His policies have made things worse.

There is no disputing that.

Well like I said..in your mind it is a simple issue, get a Republican in office and all the problems go away.

No wonder it is impossible talking to you, the way you think is narrow minded and flawed.

Lets say Obama got involved in forcing businesses to hire more workers, got involved in making gas companies sell cheaper gas, and got involved in making food companies sell cheaper products…wouldn’t that be fascist communism?

I have a client thats been working in the oil drilling field in North Dakota for the past year or so. They have been drilling on private land so far. He told me that most of his fellow workers will be voting for Mittens because they believe he will open more public land for drilling if he's elected. He says they estimate that there is enough oil in North/South Dakota areas to sustain our needs for 50+ years.

The two years where the Democrats controlled the whole house? The Senate was the dilemma. Dems had about fourteen weeks worth of a filibuster-proof 60-vote majority that still included conservative leaning dems. Ted Kennedy wasn't well enough to place votes. Once Brown in Massachusetts was elected to the Senate, Democrats no longer had a chance to pass anything unless they got both the conservative Democrats and the some of the otherwise lock-step Republicans to break ranks.

Republican leadership made it clear that their goal was to oust Obama and everyone was expected to follow the leadership.

The Tea Party freshmen only caused more problems.

Obama didn't realize Republicans would intentionally throw a monkey wrench in the plans for economic recovery just to paint him as a failure and win elections in 2010 and 2012.

Bowlslit, what makes this even more amazing is that the oil & gas drilling is expanding  "in spite of"  Obama's policies, not "because" of them. 

Think of how much better it would be with a president that supported growth in these industries !!!    More jobs people !!!

Stiln, it only appears that way because the proposals the DEMS puts forth typically involve more spending.   

Tea Party freshman were voted in to reject Obama, Pelosi, Reid et al government expansion and spending.  Remember that ?

I'm citing facts, you're calling names (and you're projecting)

Guess why that is?

Really?

Um, so what exactly are the Republicans doing?

Further, if legislation is all that is needed to "create jobs" or "fix the economy" why did the U/E rate increase to 10% after the "stimulus" was passed?

There was a net decline of 406,000 in the number of Americans age 25 or older with a bachelor’s degree or higher who were working in the United States in June, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

In the final analysis, should we go back the republican policies of the 8 Bush years ? When the financial collapse happened, when we had two wars put on a credit card ?

Obama has had only 3.5 years... ( while fighting 2 wars against the party of No  ) to bring the economy back.

And the logical anwser is ? OBAMA for 4 more years !

You really have to truly feel sorry for da road when he makes this post and doesnt understand why it happened.

"In August 1950, with a national population of 150 million people, the U.S. economy created 734,000 jobs"

is he that uneducated that he doesnt know why jobs were created in 1950 but not in 2012?

The country was being built in 1950 thus the reason jobs were being created and companies had not yet come up with the idea of moving jobs overseas to fill their greedy pockets with more cash.  Do people really got to explain this to you. Stop trying to compare today to the past, it doesnt work that way. Heres start for you da road, your idol ronnie the worst president ever reagan opened the door for jobs moving overseas.

There are millions of jobs being created today dopey, problenm is they are all being created overseas.

So really stick your silly numbers that you have no grasp of, where the sun dont shine.

Right wingers go around acting like they know so much, then one of them make a retarded post like that.

This post is almost as dumb as the founding father posts the right wing wackos post, where they try comparing what the founding fathers faced to what our people today face.  Its friggin light years away and you cant compare the 2.

Daroad, you should have stayed in school past the first grade, you might actually be able to understand your own post.  Keep copying and pasting without undestanding what things mean, cause your just making a fool of yourself daily.

now leave the computer and go get laid

I think all us democrats should chip in some cash and buy daroad a hooker to help him release all that bent up hate he has for Obama. If we get him laid for the first time, he might actually have a new outlook on life and give up his copying and pasting life Its up to us fellow dems to do this for him, because his cheap right wingers will never reach in their wallets to do it.

so daroad should we send you a female or male for your present

But these are foreign concepts to any liberal,  including our community-organizer-in-chief.  He is too busy expanding government power, blessing Obamacare , and making businesses take a "wait and see" approach  until Act II. 

 Let's all hope we don't see Act II and a re-election .

Learn how to grasp things, you dumbass.  yes the 1950's the country was being built up and if you dont understand what that means because you dropped out of 1st grade thats your problem.

50's, 60's, 70's is when the country was rolling

In the 1970's there was stagflation.

When people think of the U.S. economy in the 1970s the following comes to mind:
  • High oil prices
  • Inflation
  • Unemployment
  • Recession


Rolling. Really, it was!

still beating that dead horse about reagan's 18 million jobs

you are such a fool.  keep talking about those minimum wage jobs while ronnie looked the other way and let his buddies in the corporations start moving jobs overseas

His Presidency was the start of our country going downhill and where corporations took complete control of our government.

You are good for some laughs, but really you would do alot better on the disney forums, where there are a lot of kids your own age.

Notice how you dont mention nothing about the trillions ronnie boy cost tax payers with his war on drugs bullshit. One of the biggest scams ever pushed on the American people. That scam is still costing tax payers billions every year.  thanks ronnie

so really keep telling us how your idol created 18 million minimum wage jobs and leave out how many trillions hes cost us

worst President ever, hands down.  total bozo

must be hell going thru life trying to believe you are so smart, but the truth is you are clueless.

whats really funny is when reagan was President, your mom and dad hadnt even thought about having you yet

Your whole entire life is spent getting copy and paste material, from your whacko right wing websites you go to.  Stay there

I wouldnt be surprised if you were the kid of the poster called mets.  is he your dadyou post just like him

Are you done embarrassing yourself?
They couldn't pass anything unless they had 60 votes??
Are you drunk???
What the hell is the whole house????
If you believe there are conservative Democrats, do you believe in the tooth fairy?????

And yeah, ousting obama should be the goal of the Republican Party, but not because of racism, as you would narrow mindedly scream, but because America is devolving under his lack of leadership.

Yikes

but but but your guy was supposed to be post partisan and able to reach across the aisle...........................he turned out to be the most divisive president in recent memory.

Of course, you believe the Dems went out of their way to make GWB look good.

You are what's known as a useful idiot.

Impressive use of . That might be your forte. You're confused though. Please provide links supporting your minimum wage contention. <predicting crickets> Even if that were true, why didn't the Peanut Farmer create those jobs?? I guess he was too busy pumping up the misery index to all time highs (that's inflation + unemployment to you).

But I guess from your perspective, he gave RR a prime situation to start from.......rock bottom. RR turned around an awful situation, obama conversely inherited a tough situation and made it abysmal.
