You must be Michelle Obama to believe all that.


 


Number of people in the work force continues to go down (according to BLS)...  Real inflation continues to rise...  More people on entitlement programs... Federal debt continues to rise... Massive new regulations... Even more taxation...  Attacking the Constitution....   Yea... so much to be proud of.

To some degree, and in some parts, absolutely.  At least some knew to lower taxes, which increased revenues.  Of the last 5, one believed in the Constitution (although not always followed it.)  And one was able to cut some entitlement spending in one area...


 


And for those of us that study history, we can go back even further.

Couldn't have said it bettery myself. The public sector continues to grow, while the private sector shrinks and more and more people leave the workforce altogether.

Interesting that you bring that up, as I was listening to a discussion with Wayne Allen Root regarding the similarity between Bush Jr. and Obama as compared to Herbert Hoover and FDR. How Hoover spent recklessly, violating his supposed conservative principles, and FDR just did the same. We really need to learn from history.

Oh... I know the Obamas are smart - they know exactly what they're doing.  You either are blinded, or just won't admit the truth.  That's why I shared the numbers and will continue to show them - people need to see that the Obamas are doing exactly the opposite of the Constitution and liberty. To be reasonable, you must have the facts.  And as John Adams explained, "Facts are stubborn things."


Patience???  Remember that Obama is determined to "transform" the USA away from the Constitution.  I have as much patience for that as I do for the (same goals of) Hitler, Mao, Stalin and any other tyrannical person who has made it their goal to enslave others.


Isn't it interesting that you demand that we respect the current president yet you disrepect a previous one?  See... there's a huge difference between respecting a person and the office.  And while I can respect the capabilities of my enemies, that doesn't mean I won't stop fighting them.

Yep - everyone keeps forgetting that Senator Obama complained about things Bush would do and then President Obama not only does the same thing, but much worse!  Bush ran up the debt, but Obama has done a lot more.  Bush pushed the PATRIOT Act... and Obama not only expanded it, but then added the NDAA.  We could go on and on... ProRegressives are in both parties and they have been taking us down the road of anti-Constitutional government for years.  The Bush's, Obama, etc. are from the same group of people with the same agenda.  It's just that some are more hard core than others.

In fiscal 2010, according to numbers published by the Census Bureau and the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), net spending by all levels of government in the United States was $5,942,988,401,000. That equaled $50,074 for each one of the 118,682,000 households in the country.


In that same year, according to the Census Bureau, the median household income was $49,445.


That means total net government spending per household ($50,074) exceeded median household income (49,445) by $629.


 


And the ProRegressives think this is okay???

Yes, Obama knows what he is doing-and I disagree with it. I don't want the radical change, the class warfare and hypocricy that this President stands for. I do not agree with his collectivist policies, his belief that government can fix it all.


Also, at some point, Obama has to take responsibility for the economy and stop blaming Bush Jr. The man has had 5 years, 2 of which his party dominated the Congress and White House. What do we have to show for it?


Let's see:


Appointing a tax cheat as Secretary of Treasury


Funneling government funding in to now defunct solar panel projects such as Solyndra


For all the crying about gun control, Fast and Furious remains prosecuted, even as hundreds of guns went over the boarder, illegally and resulted in the death of two boarder agents.


Appointment of his job czar, GE CEO, who's company avoids paying taxes, while Obama cries for rich companies to "pay more."


His associations with Bill Ayers, Rev. Wright, Father Flagger and other controversial, and racially divisive, public figures. The media finds this unremarkable.


His Justice Department refuses to prosecuted Black Panther hate crimes, even with evidence. Mean while, TEA party members are accused of racism with no evidence.


A longer and more detailed list here: http://www.thepoliticalguide.com/Profiles/President/US/Barack_Obama/Scandals/


Oh yes, I have no doubt that people will say "Bush is just as bad" but Obama is like Bush but on steroids. Bail out the banks? Ok, and now the auto industry. Bush was unpatriotic according to candidate Obama for 4.9 trillion in debt. Obama adds more debt at every turn. 


Obamacare: supposed to reduce the cost of healthcare, when it has been demonstrated to add to the cost, as well as increase taxes, the size of government and be a form of legislation that needed to be passed in order to be read (Thanks, Pelosi )


All in all, I have no trust in Obama or his policies.
