I will not vote for polices that will create 35% unemployment. All the Republican candidates proposed policies will create an economic catastrophe.

Why would anyone re-elect him?
Well, you may be right. A lot of people don't really understand beyond the numbers taken at face value. You're an example of that.

Hey, Obama followed the Bush plan for troop withdrawls in Iraq.

He renewed Bush's tax cuts for the rich.
His oil company policies are unchanged.
Guantanamo is still up and running, there are plenty of troops in Afghanistan.
He is still spending like crazy (see bush)
Goldman Sachs and other big corporations bailed out and serving as advisors, cabinet members etc.

Basically, I don't know how Bush II supporters wouldn't want to re-elect Bush 3.0. And of course the democrats will vote for him because he has the (D) after his name.

Bwah ha ha hah hah. There will be two republicans running against each other for president.

can you give me an example of the division that Obama caused? From where I sit, Obama has conceded too many positions to appease the GOP.

The President has spent us into oblivion. And he has no desire to stop.
Has he? See chart below.

Obama is out of control.
That's a value judgment. How, specifically, is he out of control?

Everything Barack does is political. In the best interest of his re-election, rather than in the best interest of the country.
Examples please.


Why would anyone re-elect him?
Because he's better than the GOP cartoon characters.

Give black folks a little more credit than that.

False Flag.
Actually, it's not that far from the truth.

1) Blacks vote overwhelming democratic. That's just a duhhhhhh for anyone following politics.

2) In the primaries against Hillary, exit polls in a number of states showed that race was a significant factor in the voting decision especially for black voters whom voted for Obama 90% of the time.

Exit polls show race, Wright were big factors | The Honolulu Advertiser | Hawaii's Newspaper

That 9% unemployment you complain about is the direct result of Republican and Monetarist economic policy. But as an independent, its simple. I look at the GOP fields and see the most pathetic candidates to have ever run for office since McGovern in 72.

The spending started well before Obama took office. TARP I passed without him in office if you remember.
HE is the one who said if you give him the Stimulus money it would NOT go above 8%. So he is responsible for NOT getting it down.

Not only that, but if a Republican is elected to the Presidency (and we all know that is going to happen in 2012, willingness to publically admit so, notwithstanding) the Sky will most-assuredly FALL!!!

About that spending chart that Liberals have been waving around:

About That Spending Chart Liberals Have Been Waving Around …


Please read the truth about Obama spending compared to Bush.

You're so sure of yourself, so don't be afraid.


The truth is - your President fails.
