Does the Title to this thread really Shock Any Of You?
It shouldn't.

Most of Americans have felt this recession in one way or another,,,, lose your car, home, job and self esteem

Move back into Mom's house, get a divorce because of money problems can even begin to think how you'll ever pay back those student loans!

Obama has forgotten about you, No,,, Really he has, he doesn't see you,,, he believes what he's told and he's cushioned from the out side world.
As long and Michelle and her mother and the girls can go on vacation,,,,,,,He's Happy,,, Why is Obama Happy....He believes you're on vacation to,,, His Holly Wood Friends aren't feeling your pain so,,, How Could Obama?

Here's his statement about the Recession.

"It was a house of cards and it collapsed in the most destructive, worst crisis that we’ve seen since the Great Depression," Obama said. "And sometimes people forget the magnitude of it. You know, you saw some of that in the video that was shown. Sometimes I forget."


Mitt Romney's press secretary, Andrea Saul, responds: "It’s not surprising that a president who forgot to create jobs, forgot to cut the debt, and forgot to change Washington has now admitted that he’s forgotten about the recession. In fact, it seems that the President has forgotten that he’s been in office for the last three-and-a-half years. In November, the American people won’t forget."

But Listen Sheeple,,, Don't Worry,,,,,,He came out about Gays ( he was forced to ) and marriage. Great I hope you can get married, But he didn't do anything to help you,,,, it's still up to each state to decide.
Keep watching the Boob Tube and Vegetate, Don't use your Brain Unless Directed Too By Your Appointed News Station.

Obama told a bunch of people in Iowa

"We had reversed the recession, avoided a depression, gotten the economy moving again," Obama told a crowd in Decorah, Iowa. "But over the last six months we've had a run of bad luck." Obama listed three events overseas -- the Arab Spring uprisings, the tsunami in Japan, and the European debt crises -- which set the economy back.

I think once you're POTUS, it's real easy to lose touch with the common man (if they ever had it to begin with). In fact, I think this holds true with pretty much everyone up in Washington, as well as world wide. I don't know if this will ever change, but I highly doubt it.
Still, in the age of instant information and communication, the ability to change this para-dime exists. But as the old saying goes, power corrupts. So by the very nature of the position and therefore power we hand these individuals with our votes distances them from us.
Even the most well meaning person, once in the establishment long enough, will turn into another one of pigs on the farm.

My Friend Not Only Has Obama Lost Touch,,, He' lost his Fricking Mind, Read what he said in 2011.

When speaking to the nation in a primetime television address on Monday, President Barack Obama said that because less money was “coming in” during the recession, the federal government had to “spend even more.”

I guess that makes sense to somebody!!!!
I mean that money he's spending his Our Tax Dollars and if there's not enough coming in,,, you save and go with less,,,,,, You don't pay you electric bill our your mortgage because you want to spend that money on a trip to Spain with Mom and The Girls and 50 close friends.
Do You?

That's why it would be nice to go back to the days of Lincoln and the people before him. Back then you were able to go to the White House and speak your mind to the president and representatives. Obviously after Lincolns assassination that all changed but imagine if we were able to do that today? He wouldn't be forgetting anything. It's almost as if when we get a president they become just a figure head, someone else is running the show behind the curtain and the American people fall for it. If you want real change vote Ron Paul. It's as if watching one of the founding fathers every time that man speaks.

No, no I don't. I can honestly say only Big Brother can get away with spending money on a negative budget. Though wouldn't it be nice if we all could budget our personal incomes the way the government does?

Wife: "Honey, we can't afford the car payment this month unless we cut back on some of the frivolous spending."

Me: "Sounds good, lets go buy another one. And while we're at it, I think we should hit up the casino. Blow a few grand and see if we get lucky!"

Yeah, in reality, I just lost the privileges to the bank account. Not to mention a few nights on the couch. ^.^

The sad reality is I don't think it will ever change. No matter who's in office. They spend to buy votes in the end, not caring about who the buck passes to because by the time it's a real problem, they're already out of the office. Ala Bush Jr. if you will.

I honestly don't think TPTB will ever let Paul close to the White House. His seat in congress is as loud a voice as they will ever allow that man. -.-

I wonder...if it might be too much to ask of our White House and staff currently in residency. However briefly that may remain the case after the next election.... While the Rockstar is off on the Campaign trail and living a high life few in human history have ever known......or while jetsetting off to whatever destination might strike his fancy as a spot to stop and hang out for a few days.... Perhaps he can stop reminding us that are HURTING...just how much HE IS NOT.

I believe history shows a great many examples of populations watching a leader go on and on and on and ON...and who knows what that last little thing was. I think back again to President Marcos and his walking shoe store of a Wife. They were almost chased by a raging population...right to the American Helicopters that carried his butt out.

Really... Even Americans tire of the opulence and seeming nonstop costume parties and headliner names at the White House like it's a cheap joint on the old Vegas strip. I've never seen the appearance of...casual disregard and even contempt of the people that this man has shown since his name became well known. Really incredible..and thankfully..almost over.

Obama gets a free Library and another pension to add to his Senate one, for life. May he get on with the business of retiring. November works fine for me!

Politicians work the art of blame, because it's never their fault.

I seriously hope people remember come November, because if not, who knows if this country will make it to it's next voting November. As it stands, people are so fed up, one more straw, and the camel is gonna have full blown mess on it's hand.

Do I believe it's the rich, not being taxed enough: NO
Do I believe it is the poor getting handouts NO
Do I believe it is Medicare and Social Security NO
Do I believe it is some other "group" of average American people NO

Do I believe it is the Central Banks and the government YES!

Some of you may not agree with the above, that is fine, to each their own..

It's sad so many cannot see the lies they are being fed, makes me sad, and I fear for the future of our kids, and our not so far off future.

What a complete idiot.

This corrupt flunkie has got to go. Not that a republican would be any better, of course. The only solution is a hardcore Maoist government that adheres closely to the Mass Line and puts the needs of the people first.

I hope I live to see the Constitution torched with a bic lighter. Beacuse as long as we keep relying on an 18th century document to tackle 21st century problems, these are the kinds of leaders we are going to get.

Power to the people, right on!

No, No, No,,,,, I lived under Mao's rule and was raised a Maoist, I still have my Little Red Book.
I would have to say, every Chinese person we knew had a book called the Quotations ( the little red book ) From Chairman Mao Tse-Tung (《毛主席语录》) which was regarded as a source of infallible truth in discussions or arguments at schools or the workplace.
No, That is not the way to live, You are not living, you are surviving for the State Government.

During the rule of Mao, millions of former landlords, communist dissident and political rivals were executed. There was a new system of education based on Marxism that was imposed. My mother and father wear Mao Suits and went to Marxist classes every day after work with me and my brother.

The Communist Party assumed control of all media in my country of China and used it to promote the image of Mao and the Party. Much like today, They did not show the Mao's private pools, cars or his large wardrobe or that of his wife.While millions starved and broke their backs in very labor intensive work programs, Mao and his general committee lived very well.

I'm very sorry I have gone off track of my thread,,,, Or Have I?
Obama does not live in our world, he and his staff do not suffer our loses of our homes and jobs and in many cases our families.
Obama lives in the world of Big Money and Movie Stars and Very Rich People,,,,,, You are the little people you he looks down on and pats your heads and smiles at you while you scurry around looking for that next pay check or meal!!!!

You think he cares? Come On,,,,,, All his friends are Old Terrorist, Communist, Rich and Haters of America,,,,, Just look at his Pastor of 20 + years.
Sorry Sheeple but you need to wake-up........
