Obama isn't standing on the corner handing out food stamps. It's a federal need-based program expanded under Bush to include disaster victims. The applicants are what they are and would have been the same had McCain won.

You can tell the same lie over and over and people will begin to believe it, but when every day reality contradicts these lies, people eventually begin to get back in touch with reality.

It went up because he can't do any more harm.

You're assuming the economy would suck as bad had McCain won.

With all that Obama and his Democrat friends have done to reward people for not working, that's a big assumption.

Bush and Obama are one in the same. People sound so naive thinking otherwise.

W will be on the campaign trail when goats fly.

In other words, he'll be toxic til the day he hits the casket.

Just like idiots who honestly think the 50's was a better decade.


I wasn't alive in the 1950's, but I was around in the 1960's and that was definitely a better time.

As far as 2001-2008 goes, it was definitely better than 2009-present.

Back then unemployment was low, I made great money and my house was actually worth something.

Says the liberal CD poster.

The WOPO poll says otherwise.
