Looking at it from the other side, Obama has been a boon for Republicans in some ways. If it wasn't for Obama, Congress would not have gained 50+ seats in Congress in the 2010 election. Which meant the Democrats only had control of Congress for a short 4 years.

On Thursday just 3 days after Obozo's reelection, two younger men i know, were laid off at their jobs of 10 years. Ten mind you, not kidding, here this is serious. There employer brought up the health care issue, with some other issues, and they had to let some people go, well actually all together, they let 20 people go.

Starting already, and for those of you who did vote him in once again, if you also lose your job, i don't care. You bought into the garbage once again, my investor, says we are going down big time, he is smart, he is swaive, he is intelligent, and he can already see where we are headed.

He has been spot on.

If they talk about Companies hiring, they also better figure in, those employers, and there have been many, who are letting good employees go.

Is your job safe, really think it is easy to find another one. Take a look at our high unemployment and it is growing once again.

It isn't one party who loses, actually it is all of us, because the economy is once again going down, unemployment will remain high, and housing sorry, still has a long long way to go. We lose together as a whole. We win as a whole. Right now we are between a rock and a hard place.
I sincerely hope this is a better 4 years then the last 4 years of hell.
You say exactly the same things over and over in your posts in all threads......the country is going to hell and then you cite anecdotal "evidence." It's always the same. Such a one-dimensional "persona."

Do you have any proof to support your "lower IQ" voters assertion?
