Here's your problem, Cruella: Obama inherited the worst nightmare that your side could've conjured up over the last 32 years of Rethuglican mismanagement, and now you're trying to lay all that nasty Rethuglican stupidity at Obama's feet......and it ain't workin', Cruella. Just look at the BOUNCE Obama is STILL getting from the most excellent convention --- kind of makes that dumb chair thing look even MORE stupid now, doesn't it? Fact-checking has it place in this election cycle, and no voter suppression, lies and paid rethug shill is going to change the fact that people are PAYING ATTENTION to the mess your Party is in. Good-bye, Cruella. You can stick a fork in it.....your done.

Nice try. Still trotting out the tired liberal canard of the "inherited mess". Nothing is ever the fault of Obama, it's all what was done before the great one came into office. He did inherit problems, but he BEGGED for the job and promised us all it would all be fixed by then end of his first term or it would be a one-term situation. He promised the national debt would be reduced by 50% too. Obama-smitten liberals are like someone who shows up and sees a house partially on fire so they pour gas on it and fan the flames and spread it everywhere until the whole neighborhood is on fire, then they stand there, absolutely incredulous that anyone would blame them, saying "IT'S NOT MY FAULT!!!! IT WAS ON FIRE WHEN I GOT HERE!!!!"

Obama got a bounce from the Democratic Convention according to the Gallup Poll! This is the same Gallup Poll that was threatened with DOJ action approximately one week ago because the Obama Administration did not like poll results showing negatives for Obama!! What a miraculous oreversal of fortune!

Empty chair, empty suit, incompetent president. It all fits perfectly -- and you're still writing about it. The rest of your comment is truly mind-boggling. What in hell are you babbling about?

So, the ruinous debt has everything to do with the Repubs and not entitlement programs (gee, where did they come from?) as Obama's debt commission determined, is that what you're trying to tell us?

Robert----not only entitlement programs but the lending environment established by the dems, Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, Fannie and Freddie and that pathetic modification Clinton made (1998) to the CRA (a Jimmy Carter invention) which not only gave the greenlight to lending to high risk borrowers--------but also led to the greed by banks on bundling those high risk investments.

I certainly hope we can clear the air during the debates about the housing bubble and where it began (as you pointed out) instead of dealing with fools like "Tree" with his "it's Bush's fault!" nonsense.

you did not mention obama's part in this lending environment. he is the attorne who sued the bank to lend money to unworthy borrowers and that started the whole calamity. no one but he and the democrats are totally to blame. and we all will suffer for this for a few generations.

As the campaign settles in for the home stretch, there are many reasons to believe that the Obama campaign will have trouble closing the deal. Chief among them are the numbers: 

Unemployment
When the President took office: 7.8%
Now: 8.3%
 
Median Household Income:
When the President took office: Almost $55,000
Now: Less than $51,000
 
Price of Gas:
When the President took office: $1.85 per gallon
Now: $3.78 per gallon (more than double!)
