    Wait.. you people should be worshiping Obama's dirty socialist bum! Pretty soon he's going to mandate us to adhere to Maoist standards like you have in the great white north and make us get milk in bags like savages.

    Proudly voting Republican this time. Tired of debt. Tired of high unemployment. Tired of higher food and gas prices. Tired of a government involvement with my health care. Tired of the President blaming everything on the previous president. Tired of lies about Libya. Tired of a media bias and a lack of journalistic integrity. But most of all I'm tired of celebrities, comedians, comic book artists and writers that try to bully their political opinions and ideology onto me and try to make me feel as if I am evil or stupid for thinking differently.

    sorry, but in this post you did prove that you're stupid. Or at least uninformed.

    No serious economist thinks Obama could've fixed an economic meltdown in 4 years. Most expect it to take 10, including Romney who promised to have the ship righted in 8-10 years while hypocritically claiming Obama should've done it in 4.

    And the 'government involvement in healthcare' is to protect you and make healthcare cheaper. It's just regulations that say Healthcare companies can't rip you off.

    but hey vote for the guys who want to make massive cuts to medicare that makes sense.

    You might not want to be lecturing anyone else about being uninformed. Just saying.

    If no serious economist thought that Obama couldn't have fixed the economic meltdown in 4 years, why did Obama promise that the he would cut the deficit in half in four years?

    "Today I'm pledging to cut the deficit we inherited by half by the end of my first term in office," he said. "Now, this will not be easy. It will require us to make difficult decisions and face challenges we've long neglected. But I refuse to leave our children with a debt that they cannot repay, and that means taking responsibility right now, in this administration, for getting our spending under control."

    By your own standard, Obama is stupid. Or uninformed.

    You realize the recession and deficit are completely different issues right?

    A politician's promises should be judged by what he tries to deliver. For instance, the Bush-era tax-cuts that got extended for 2 years where he wanted to let them lapse for the wealthy while maintaining them for the middle class but where the republicans refused to let the middle class have them unless the wealthy did, too? That was the republicans adding half a trillion to the national debt right there (and easily 3 more over 10 years if Romney gets elected).

    A lot of efforts to close loopholes, increase revenue, stimulate the economy etc. were actively thwarted by republicans. If you're going to ask why he didn't fulfil his pledge to cut the deficit, the answer is "republicans". If you look at everything Obama proposed in legislation and through executive power, if he had been able to get his policies thropugh the deficit would be much less. He might not have reached his goal (at the time he made that promise people really didn't grasp the full extent of this depression) but he would be a lot closer.

    The policies Obama have proposed are aimed at recovery. The Romney/Ryan plan sounds an awful lot like a planned bankruptcy.
    Yodamite, Tom Strong and alekesam like this.
