Obama has, in my eyes, done as good of a job as possible for what he was given to begin with. Much of the debt/deficit accumulation throughout his presidency was rolled over from policies the Bush administration implimented, something the GOP likes to forget. Also since Obama has been in office he somewhat revamped the job market that bush completely decimated, only problem now is that congress, which is Right controlled, is now not passing any bills whatsoever and is now making the job market back petal. Also Obama has been the best president since Clinton to control the debt, another fact that the GOP would like to ignore, heres a graph:
Who increased the Debt.
Obama has also tryed to impliment policies to help the working man/middle class but again these efforts have been thwarted because of a republican congress that would rather see Americans suffer then a democrat succeed. Moving on to the GOP candidates I'd like to firstly remind everyone that in 2010 Mitt Romney made 21.7 million dollars and payed at the same tax rate as a man bringing in about 25k. Also Mitt doesn't seem to have a problem with this at all, stating that he payed the "fair" amount of taxes and didn't do anything illegal.
Take a look at the daily show as they try to lighten the mood on this absolutely disgusting policy: DS LINK (someone please embed it if you have the time). Also being from the northeast I have a very big problem with taxes as well as anyone would in just about every Blue state, another graph to give you a prospective of what I'm talking about: Red State Socialism. So anyone trying to call Obama a socialist should take a very close look at what their paying in taxes and how these red states are making off like bandits with our money. If I must get into Newt Gingrich then I shall by saying only this: he served his wife with divorce papers while she was in the hospital getting treated for cancer... Need I say more? Fine then take a look at this picture, hilarious yes but also quite truthful: Gingrich Family Values. I'm prepared for the BS storm to come by the blind followers of the GOP, I say blind followers because clearly unless you make more then 200k a year your a blind follower skipping behind the walrus and the carpenter. Obama for president 2012.

Very well said. I have been asking my neighbors friends and relatives who they favor for President in 2012...and they have all told me (one way or the other)...that they cannot stand the choices of the Politicians that are running for the republican nomination. Some say they will vote for President Obama....some say they won't vote at all.

I think you are right about the (republican congress) they have hamstrung the President...and done this on purpose.

Note: for those who don't know...(hamstrung) "to severely restrict...to make ineffective or powerless" (Merrian-Webster dictionary)

Thanks for the reply, I knew the definition of hamstrung but thats only because a slang sports term I learned as a kid is to "hamstring", which would be to disable an opponent during a game or to render them ineffective. I hope you neighbors get out there and vote, one way or the other, although clearly I'd like them to go my route. Maybe giving them a little bit of information would sway them, although you probably had already known about much of what I posted maybe giving them some of these facts would help. Again I appreciate the response, thank you.

That's funny, Obama controlled the house and the senate for plenty of time to have passed every damn thing he would ever have wanted, including a balanced budget. It wasn't until 2010 the Republicans gained control of the house. The excuses for him are lame.

Funny he did pass quite a few bills before the congress was republican held many of which were geared toward helping the middle class this is the list for 09-10: Bills Passed 09-10. Also I like your short post, next time try to put some facts in there. If you'd like to know a list of bills denied by congress since I'll get that for you as well just ask since you seem unable to find this information for yourself.

Also whats lame is the lake of apparent common sense from the right, may I ask what you make yearly? May I also ask what excuses I've given here for Obama? I've given some factual information, far as I know that isn't an excuse. Excuse: Attempt to lessen the blame attaching to (a fault or offense); seek to defend or justify.

Stimulus, Homebuyer incentives, Unemployment increases and extentions, Many other bills were passed in 2010, before the right gained the majority I'm still looking for a credible list. He also out sourced for military projects to take money away from the republicans that own many of these local out fits that out source many of there products anyway and avoid taxes. So where were you going with that? I'll also ask you the same question, what state are you from and how much do you make a year? Also if you'd like me to list the very beneficial bills the republican senate has denied I'll get those for you as well but that trump card will remain hidden till need be

Is a President that you have to defend worth having?
Are you saying the President is unable to defend himself,
and is this the objective of this thread?

I think he's shown he can defend himself and when the debates come you'll see very quickly how pitiful the GOP is, again may I ask you what state your from and how much you make in a year?

I am from a State of mind, that if a man needs defending, he is not worth the defense.

Also I'd like everyone to remember it was congress who proposed SOPA/PIPA, I know the right has very short term memory.

Great reply ignore the question, we'll see where you stand on the subject when whoever emerges as the GOP front runner tries to defend himself.

Again the debt limit increases were due to what the BUSH ADMINISTRATION had implimented and handcuffed the congress in doing so. Also thank you for not answering the questions of what you make yearly and what state your from, funny haven't heard much about my red state socialism comments.

Exactly what policies did Obama try to implement that would help the working man/middle class?

Hate having a one liner, but this was the only part that piqued my interest.
