I'm SO glad that Obama spends every waking hour sharpening his laser-like focus on the economy and jobs!!

I'm SO glad he wasted two years of Congressional Democratic majority on shoving a health care system down the throats of an unwilling American public while ignoring the unemployment situation!

US poverty on track to rise to highest since 1960s



The ranks of America's poor are on track to climb to levels unseen in nearly half a century, erasing gains from the war on poverty in the 1960s amid a weak economy and fraying government safety net.Census figures for 2011 will be released this fall in the critical weeks ahead of the November elections.

Get politically involved, work your way up to President then you fix it as expressing opinions on political forums accomplishes absolutely nothing to solve any perceived problems....

I would be more qualified than the moron sitting in the White House right now.....at least I've owned a business and held executive positions before.

From all indications, Obama merely wants poverty in the USA to skyrocket like the electric rates, gasoline, and groceries.

Yeah, yeah, yeah.... Obama is Hitler, Stalin and the Anti-Christ all rolled into one. I think we got all that by now... except we still haven't heard what your guy is gonna do and how he's gonna be any better...!? Because contrary to popular belief, things can always get worse, very much worse (and Sketchy looks like just the kinda guy to do it)!!

You haven't been paying any attention then.

Does it not bother you that your annointed one promised unemployment under 5% by now?

He's in charge....the buck stops at the Oval Office.

Yeah sure you have, perhaps as an executive you'd know things can be a little more complex once you've grabbed the tiger by the tail and expected results cant always be achieved once in the drivers seat due to the many unknowns that come into play particularly when dealing with running an enterprise the size of the USA. At this point Romney can say anything he wants about Obamas record,he;s not in the drivers seat and therefore at this point has no accountability,just like all the armchair political quarterbacks who all think they can do a better job than the current President but dont want to lift a finger to do anything about it themselves ...
