The economy hit rock bottom thanks to the GOP and their policies, millions of people were thrown out of work then and ended up on food stamps or unemployment. Credit goes to Bush/GOP for every person who went on public assistance in 2009/2010 and even 2011.

Blaming Obama for the people put on food stamps thanks to the Bush Recession of 2008 is like blaming a firefighter for the water he used putting out a fire started by an arsonist.


Obama only made the economy worse with his anti-capitalism policies.

ObamaCare placed a dark cloud over the Fortune 500 corporations.

ObamaCare introduced - uncertainty - .

Thank God the SCOTUS will kill ObamaCare in June.

It is unconstitutional to force Americans to buy health insurance.

The George Soros nightmare will end November 6, 2012.

Blackmarketeer...

You are correct... there has to be fallout, carryover, call it what you like from the Bush administration... and of course Bush inherited problems from the previous administration.
I feel confident history will show, just as Clinton / Gore road the internet as the countries only vehicle to prosperity, Bush / Cheney road the housing boom.
Although the internet is still flying high today, millions were left unemployed and underemployed by its crash.
In the same token, the housing market, corrupted by many banks, mortgage companies, realtors, appraisers to name but a few not only destroyed the mainstay portion of the housing market and industry in America, it also caused the commerical market to crash. Recovery of either or both is likely stymied for 10 to 20 years and will never recover to its insane, bloated, over inflated level of the near past.
In one blow, GREED destroyed both markets and all supporting industries leaving millions without work, many likely forever.
Obama should not be blamed for, nor claim credit for that which started on Bush's watch.
In closing, I have no love for Obama, did not vote for him, will not vote him due simply to his anti-gun, 'Second Amendment' agenda.
With every breath in my body I will be forced to fight for Obama's defeat in this election.
Obama is going into his lame duck portion of his tenure and will like name two Supreme Court Judges, along with many other Judges which, given his anti-gun agenda could cause the destruction of the Second Amendment rights planned and included by the drafter's into our Constitution.
My opinion and experience having been closely involved in both parties over the past years, the donkey has bred the elephant and the elephant has bred the donkey... I do not know if we now have a donkaphant or an elephadon, but the mutant product of the inbreeding has caused the failure of our political system.

I agree with everything you said except that you called the poor "a worthless group". I would say your attitude is quite worthless, too. No human beings are worthless. Some are more imperfect than others but all have god given potential. And reality is always more complicated than the labels. I refuse to call any human being worthless. Other than that you practically nailed it. Romney was indeed inferring that the middle and working classes have been the hardest hit. The very rich and the very poor are more shielded from the effects.

not a bad strategy


Except it's the only class of America that's shrinking. The poor are surging, the rich are growing fast. The middle class is collapsing.


he has the rich vote. if he gets the middle class vote, he wins. that's all I was saying. I made no comment about the state of the middle class, just that he is after their votes

If politicians really cared about the poor they would make the minimum wage $15.00 an hour. I mean... why not? We have a fiat currency backed by absolutely nothing and the FED is going to keep interest rates artificially low, causing ridiculous inflation, so why not? Either way we are screwed.

Uhhh....dare I rock the boat here and disagree, where you said that NO human is worthless.

A person may be of value to him or herself, to their very close friends....and then that's about it..unless they are of value to society.

I want to make this note...

There really are people who really are wasting space. Everyone has the natural right to self-preservation, and yet we have people that threaten this. Not only do not care to contribute to society, but some

kill
rape
steal

We put dogs down for less than that.....

I'm sure that many will be turned off by my statement of 'people wasting space'....but it is true. See, people need to wake up from the illusion that 'everyone is important and special'...its really not true. Some people are literally here, taking up space.

Was this statement geared only toward the lower class/poor? No.

We don't need to encourage multiple births to parents who can't take care of the ones they already have (as the welfare system does).

We do need to take a look at reality; bringing a baby into this overpopulated world is not all that favorable, once they reach adulthood. Space and resources will be limited and so will jobs.

This is not the 50's or 60's where multiple births were encouraged. The world is changing, and so are we.

Plus, look at the jobs...you think we are fighting for them now.....

The way that technology is advancing, and how fast it is doing so, is making a BOLD statement: HUMANS ARE NOT NEEDED THAT MUCH ANYMORE. People may want to remain in denial, but the facts are there.

Humans are being phased out in the service industry, especially customer service to include call centers, banks, and even fast foods.

In order for the human species to evolve and progress into a Type 1 civilization, population control must take place.

I certainly agree with population control, but I think it is effective and morally sound when done by limiting the number of children per family. At least until education catches up and people become responsible for their actions. I don't think we need to detonate nuclear weapons or release biotoxins resulting in the suffering of many millions. Maybe I just have a heart?


I also think that your statement defending the idea that some humans are inherently worthless shows excessive pre-conceived bias and ignorance. On top of that, it shows a complete contempt for life.

There are the free loaders who know how to take advantage of the system. There is a family who lives down the road from us. While I struggle to make money for my family, they are living off the high hog. Don’t ask me how I know. I’ll just say that I have my ways. This is what they have…

1. $1100.00 in food stamps a month for 4 kids (mother pregnant again).
2. Medicaid.
3. HUD housing.
4. Pal grant checks for school loans.
5. 3 different business names under their address. (All fake).
6. $40,000 Lexus with “I love Obama” bumper sticker on back.
7. $50,000 truck with $6,000 wheels and rims.

My older son used to get along with one of the kids from the family. That was until we found out he was dealing drugs.

And WHO is paying for all the above? The middle class! Makes me SICK!



How the heck are they getting $1100 in food stamps? We are down to $300 a month with a family of five. My husband has a job for now. Owner keeps talking about closing up business, but hasn't yet. The most we ever gotten when we were both out of work was near $800.

It does sound like a lot of fraud going on there, especially with drugs involved. It makes it that much harder for honest people who need the help.

I forgot to mention. The family is a bunch of illegals. Where do you live? I live in Denver which is a sanctuary city. They cater to the illegals here hand and foot. And if you’re white or black? GOOD LUCK!

Here is the interesting thing. He points out that there are "safety nets" to take care of them. Correct me if I am wrong but don't most if not all conservatives want to end all safety nets? Isn't that "socialism"? So if they dont really care about the poor, and want to quietly end the safety nets, doesn't that point something out? That its not that they just dont care about the poor, they HATE the poor.

Why should the Mitt worry about anyone except for himself? If people knew the lineup of advisors he has in mind if elected, he might fall off the stage with the Newt. This is who he had in mind earlier: Romney’s Advisors Are Leftist Elites.

To pay for this neoconservative extravaganza, he's got this: Watch this brief video - Mitt Romney and his offshore bank accounts

What else do you need to know? Just another suit and red on the inside.

Actually, judging from the most recent indicators it's 100% confirmed that the economy's gotten better since Bush left office, and that's a FACT. It's not doing great, but saying it's doing worse is either a blatant lie or simply showing off a lack of knowledge when it comes to economics.

As for the rest, maybe this will all come true like your amazing "Palin will become president" prediction from a while back


PS: I'm definitely not an Obama fan, but the things you are accusing him off are blatant lies...and I'm baffled you didn't pick on something that's true, like indefinite detentions, or the fact that prosecutions for financial fraud are at an all time low.
