Answer to Ransom's query: I describe him as a republican president. Historically, dem presidents out perform republicans in jobs growth by 2 to 1. Also, in GDP growth by a full percentage point. Not to mention far lower spending. Only 32 years ago total national debt was less than 1 Trillion and declining when Carter left office. After 12 years under Reagan/Bush, debt had skyrocketed to almost 6T before Clinton's spending policies were enacted (eg. Balanced Budget Act of 1993 which not one republican senator voted for). Clinton left with TND at 5.6T and declining. CBO put out a statement in late 2000 that we'd have 450B with which to pay down the debt if we simply remain on course. Bush/repub policies added 9T and still climbing today

What KIND of jobs?? Assuming you are correct which is assuming a lot, I'd bet those are gov't jobs which require the rest of us to be taxed to pay for them until that person dies AND since someone else steps in...forever. Dems destroy things when they create jobs in gov't and we lose freedoms with agencies like EPA, we don't need more bureacrats, we're full up on losers.

Bush/republican debt inducing policies added 9T to total national debt (and exponentially climbing due to wars=4T, Med part D=1T, republican tax cuts=4T). These faulty republican policies are still in place today under Obama except the Iraq war. The only excessive spending under Obama is his 687B stimulus package and bail out of auto industry in direct response to economic crisis he inherited.

If Obama blows his reelection bid, maybe he can apply for a gig with a late night talk show.

Sure, his jokes aren’t that funny, but I presume that most of what he saying now really is just a joke.

And perhaps between now and November the jokes will get much better.

They could get worse, but let’s hope for the sake of our country that they don’t get that much worse.

After months of Obama telling us “All is well, the recovery is finally beginning!” the country faces one of the most dramatic slowdowns in economic activity...
