What you said is so profound to me.
To the general public Obama's blah blah blah has weight.
To Congress Obama's blah blah blah means jack squat.
So from the outside looking in, it looks like Obama is just blowing smoke up our collective butts. But it's only because congress isn't buying into his idea's.
Did I get you right?

So we averaged 139,000 per month for 2012, BUT we lost 368,000 in the month of August alone...
The Average is 97,000 gained per month since Obama took office and he is boasting that he has created 4.5 million...that would be a good number if it was just ONE year since we need 350k per month gains to get out of our recession, BUT we are talking almost FOUR years...
I just do not understand why people believe his hype. He has not met a single promise economic wise or not. (do you all remember the "transparency government" promise?) ya right...lol
He did push his Obamacare through with a democrat congress, that 65% plus of all Americans do not want, but hey when I watched Clinton speak I wanted to vote for Clinton again...
What Clinton and Reagan had that Obama will never have is the ability to work with a congress of the opposite party, they were able to do great things, he is a lame duck...
Obama still had a democratic congress for his first two years and failed miserably, AND still has the senate and can't work pass his narcissistic ego to get our country back on track.
Let's put the waste of 800 billion stimulus in perspective....
If he put that much money into a 15% growth program he could have just paid EVERY unemployed person 30k per year for the next 10 plus YEARS, do you guys really understand what 800 billion really means?
It makes little difference to me, I'm well in the top 5%, I drink 18 year old scotch every night and smoke really nice cigars whether Obama wins or Romney wins, BUT I would say about 80% of America is not doing so well, but you are going to vote once again...lol.... for a guy that was a community organizer as his best job to fix YOUR life and make it better.
In a way I really hope he wins.... you all deserve him....
