For a bunch of whiny wingnuts who have vapors any time Bush is blamed, you sure are quick to pile on Obama. The inability to see ANY irony to your unabashed stupidity is atrocious. How DUMB can you asswanks BE?

Bush made all sorts of mistakes... signing all of the bills placed on his desk, especially all of the ones with lots of earmarks and porkbarrel spending...

That said, tell me how your man, Obama has done better... the effective unemployment rate is around 11%... The national debt is at $16 Trillion.... and the Dems, with Obama's help foisted a healthcare bill upon the American people...

And lastly... in the last 4 years, I have been called dumb, stupid, a Nazi, a terrorist, a racist, and lots of other things... IF you want to talk issues, then speak to me as your equal... name calling solves no problems.

Uhmmmmmm. Not as dumb as you, apparently.

Chicago teachers are paid more than teachers anywhere else in America, earning around $76,000 per year before benefits (http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2012/06/12/how-much-do-chicago-public-school-teachers-make/).  Even so, they've walked out of the classroom, despite being offered a 16% pay increase  (http://www.suntimes.com/15054902-761/chicago-teachers-strike-for-first-time-in-25-years-contingency-sites-ready-charters-remain-open.html) -- who else in America is getting that kind of raise in this employment market?! So much for the kids in violence-plagued Chicago who have nowhere else to go.

Showing the instincts of a leader, Romney has weighed in on behalf of the kids, parents and taxpayers of Chicago. (
