Which no one that I know that has lost their jobs in the past 2 years, all except for one person, ONE, everyone else is still unemployed.
Gas prices will be even higher. Things will get worse, not better with him in office. This guy is just clueless. People know that, and will not want him back.
People hated Bush so much that they were willing to elect in a person who was a nobody, who had no expirence, and still has no idea what a president is supposed to do. The R's don't need to have anyone who is a big rockstar in order to push this guy out. They just need someone with a pulse.
I'm not just HEARING about it, I'm SEEING it. The X-mas season was a ZOO here in Seattle, with the malls crowded & restaurants crammed - which isn't surprising considering that the Retail Sales Federation figures show that this last holiday season was the BIGGEST one EVER (surpassing 2007 - which HAD been the biggest ever). Also, I'm starting to some construction start up, new stores open & long empty condos starting to get some residents AND some "Help Wanted" signs showing. It may not be recovering in YOUR neck of the woods but definitely starting to happen HERE. Mind you, jobs ARE still scarce but they are STARTING to appear.

All in all, things are looking up. We still have a ways to go, but we're definitely moving along.
