    Just take this last item: In the last two years we have accumulated national debt at a rate more than 27 times as fast as during the rest of our entire nation's history. Over 27 times as fast.

    So, tell me again, what is it about Obama that makes him so brilliant and impressive? Can't think of anything? Don't worry. He's done all this in 29 months -- so you'll have about 8 months to come up with an answer. Every statement in this is factual and directly attributable to this Kenyan. Every bumble is a matter of record and completely verifiable.

    Default But, Doc....

    He supports GAY marriage, nothing else matters. How can you be so narrow minded? Those things you just posted are only numbers? They don't have feelings. They aren't GREEN.

    Doc, your didn't mention that last week they estimated that the U.S. corporations are sitting on more than 1.5 trillion dollars LIQUID, and not doing jack squat with it. Thats more READY CASH than Obama's failed stimulus, in the hands of the very people that know how to make money by using and investing money, that know how to make shit happen with that kind of money, and they CHOOSE to sit on it. WTF does that tell you about how they feel about Obama and the confidence they have in him.

    He can pump all the money he can get from his buddies in congress, and it won't amount to squat if corporate America isn't onboard with him. The voting public needs to wake up to the the fact that this assclown is single handedly destroying this country from the inside.

    So after 3 1/2 years of complete failure, I am starting to see Obama 2012 stickers. But not as many as in 2008. Hopefully most have finally pulled there heads out.

    Maybe you need to take a walk thru the parking lot at GM. Bet every car except possibly the excutives has a OZERO sticker. But then when your a given a freebie like they got I guess you just about have to back the asshole.

    Default I Ain't Seen One...

    I guess I'd have to go to Detroit, but here in SoCal, I ain't seen an Obama sticker on an American can. As a side bar, I will never buy an Obama Motor Car until GMC buy back the American tax payers ever dime they borrowed including interest.

    I know it is only numbers but, this is from a Google search two minutes ago: $132.9 Billion Still Owed to Tax Payers From Bailout

    Just saying GMC is doing OK with our money.

    Tim Conway, Jr. said it well: People ask me, "What is Romney doing with his money? No one seems to care what Obama is doing withe MY money." Great quote really.

    Don't you think blaming Obama personally for all these things is about as ridiculous as blaming the Phoenix mayor for every bank robbery, burglary, traffic accident, lost kid, drug deal, pot hole, storm damage, parking problem, flu outbreak, homeless panhandler, rude city employee, crooked business, termite infestations, etc, etc

    BIngo. Z seems to forget that O campaigned on the promisse that he would fix these things as the previous admin was to blame. If O just came in and kept all the same policies and didn't change a thing it should have continued ion the same course. Z just can't grasp the fact that O's policies and threats of his wanted policies put everything in overdrive.
    If you voted for Obama to prove you were not racist, then you better find someone else to vote for to prove your not stupid.

    What politician runs for any office and doesn't say he will make things better than the last guy or his competitor ? Ever see a politican win an election who is honest and says things are so screwed up I probably can't do much to fix it but I will try?
    Most politicians are nothing but self serving conmen feeding voters bullshit so they win elections.........Most will say and do anything to win. Romney is a prime example of this as embarrassingly shown by him being on every side of every issue over his political career.

    The bottom line is, HE DOES NOT KNOW WHAT TO DO ! He is a Marxist pretending to run a capitalist nation. He should be fired for being incompetent.

    None that I can think of. And after 4 years when they have done nothing to improve things by very much and we are in the situation we are in, it's time to fire them and take the next applicant and see if he can accomplish anything. Obama failed. Time for someone else.
