Obama poised to take credit for returning economy.

It was a hard fought battle, after the Bush administration nearly crashed our economy. Obama fought so hard to get our economy back. Mitt was poised to take Obamas credit, and was so arrogant about it too. But Obama came in and clenched the spotlight and will now gain credit for a return of the booming housing industry, the auto industry, the medical boom that is sure to follow the affordable care act, etc etc. I'm just so glad that Mitt lost and wasn't able to take credit he didn't deserve.

Oh yeah, the world has completely turned around. Just 10% unemployment, my million $ house is worth a quarter of that, my sales taxes just went from 7 1/2 % to 9 1/2 %, the reg fees for my car went from $300 to $1200, and my medical insurance just went from $700 a month to $900 a month, for two of us.

Next week I'm picking me up an Obama phone or two, applying for food vouchers, and put on my "I support Obama" jacket.

As they say, "If you can't beat 'em, join 'em!"

Wrong, wrong wrong, wrong and......wrong. Unemployment is at 7.8% The best since George Bush. Stock market under Bush around 6,000 Obama put it back to 14,000......... Your million dollar house down to a quarter of that, thank you George Bush. If you have a one million dollar house on a cops salary, then maybe Paul Ryan is right that you guys are making too much money! What else? Oh yes, sales tax, that certainly Obamas fault (some people ) Sales taxes are set by your state. On the subject of taxes, if the rich like you, actually paid their fair share, then we could actually lower sales taxes, huh? how about that? Car fees..... State once again, not Obama, gosh you guys blame everything on the man don't you? "I'm constipated, I can't get it up anymore and I'm fat...... Damn Obama! It's his fault! Now the best for last......... Health insurance......... Pissed about it? You should be! Your insurance company has made enough money. We need to go to socialized medicine, cut out the money whoring insurance companies and their profit skimming scams, as well as all their lavish lifestyle. Owning a million dollar home, you should know what I'm talking about! The Obama phones, yet another republican lie, and these guys are so awesome at framing lies too..... Obama doesn't hand out phones, this is part of a plan Clinton had put in a decade earlier, so when you couple that with the food stamp myth, what about the republican free money giveaway to large corporations, like the farm bill just as one instance. George Bush giving billions to the banks and insurance companies that helped you loose your hundreds of thousands of dollars through wreckless gambles on wall street. You supported Mitt, no surprise at all. This is a guy who would have given tax relief to all your rich buddies at the workers expense, and you put on his jacket. WTF? If ever there was a picture of YOU, this would be it.......... I post this jokingly, but jesus...............

And yes, the sales taxes and car taxes are directly due to another Kool Aid drinker, Gov. Moonbeam Brown.

"Super majorities give California Democrats power to tax."

A person would have to be high to follow your logic here! Just a moment ago you were blaming Obama. Now your pinning someone else now! Sure! because all the problems started the day Brown took office! Like I said before, and there's plenty of documentation to prove it, if the wealthy paid their fair share, then we'd be cruising right now. Corporate America and the wealthy pay little if any taxes. We democrats might only be able to afford cool aid, but you repubs are all smokin' crack!

Oh yes, the crack woman! And how republican, to find the most credible people like crack woman (a republican actor/ plant, no doubt!) to hang more myths on. How Rush Limbaugh. This is classic republican crack smoking at it's best. Frame a lie, put a real reliable source to back it up, and holy crap, you used to be a cop? I bet you locked up a lot of innocent people with detective work such as you're displaying here, my god. So, I suppose that you think that unemployment was 0% and everything was coming up roses, until Obama, who singlehandedly ran California's unemployment up to 11%? Look at the trends now. It was 11.5% last year....... 10.20 last month........... and presently 10.10%. Do we see a trend here? Obama took us from darn near complete meltdown, to something fairly stable. You TBers don't need reality or truth, you need jesus and some more crack or as they say in church... a miracle, man! Me? I embrace the Kenyan! Thank you Obama! You the man!

It's because we are. I know you hate facts and choose to hide from people stating the facts, but you cannot deny them! Here's a rundown of president Obamas accomplishments for the ignorant at heart.......


President Obama has thus far:

. Passed Health Care Reform: After five presidents over a century failed to create universal health insurance, signed the Affordable Care Act (2010). It will cover 32 million uninsured Americans beginning in 2014 and mandates a suite of experimental measures to cut health care cost growth, the number one cause of America?s long-term fiscal problems.

2. Passed the Stimulus: Signed $787 billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act in 2009 to spur economic growth amid greatest recession since the Great Depression. Weeks after stimulus went into effect, unemployment claims began to subside. Twelve months later, the private sector began producing more jobs than it was losing, and it has continued to do so for twenty-three straight months, creating a total of nearly 3.7 million new private-sector jobs.

3. Passed Wall Street Reform: Signed the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (2010) to re-regulate the financial sector after its practices caused the Great Recession. The new law tightens capital requirements on large banks and other financial institutions, requires derivatives to be sold on clearinghouses and exchanges, mandates that large banks provide ?living wills? to avoid chaotic bankruptcies, limits their ability to trade with customers? money for their own profit, and creates the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (now headed by Richard Cordray) to crack down on abusive lending products and companies.

4. Ended the War in Iraq: Ordered all U.S. military forces out of the country. Last troops left on December 18, 2011.

5. Began Drawdown of War in Afghanistan: From a peak of 101,000 troops in June 2011, U.S. forces are now down to 91,000, with 23,000 slated to leave by the end of summer 2012. According to Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, the combat mission there will be over by next year.

6. Eliminated Osama bin laden: In 2011, ordered special forces raid of secret compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, in which the terrorist leader was killed and a trove of al-Qaeda documents was discovered.

7. Turned Around U.S. Auto Industry: In 2009, injected $62 billion in federal money (on top of $13.4 billion in loans from the Bush administration) into ailing GM and Chrysler in return for equity stakes and agreements for massive restructuring. Since bottoming out in 2009, the auto industry has added more than 100,000 jobs. In 2011, the Big Three automakers all gained market share for the first time in two decades. The government expects to lose $16 billion of its investment, less if the price of the GM stock it still owns increases.

8. Recapitalized Banks: In the midst of financial crisis, approved controversial Treasury Department plan to lure private capital into the country?s largest banks via ?stress tests? of their balance sheets and a public-private fund to buy their ?toxic? assets. Got banks back on their feet at essentially zero cost to the government.

9. Repealed ?Don?t Ask, Don?t Tell?: Ended 1990s-era restriction and formalized new policy allowing gays and lesbians to serve openly in the military for the first time.

10. Toppled Moammar Gaddafi: In March 2011, joined a coalition of European and Arab governments in military action, including air power and naval blockade, against Gaddafi regime to defend Libyan civilians and support rebel troops. Gaddafi?s forty-two-year rule ended when the dictator was overthrown and killed by rebels on October 20, 2011. No American lives were lost.
