    Obama was handed a bad economy by Bush and now he’s doing great. You hate him because of his skin color.

      Um, okay, seriously pumpkin, that line is getting old. He campaigned for his economy he’s had for the last 4 years, and under Reagan who campaigned for Carter’s economy, he didn’t make it worse, spend more, waste our tax dollars on crony capitalism, shove health-control down our throats after promising transparency and telling us it wouldn’t be a ‘tax’, when in fact it is a tax – and under Reagan the economy actually got better as a result of his ‘deficit’ spending, lowering taxes. We’re exhausted, those of us who are liberty and freedom loving Americans, of his lies, his destruction of our country, adding another 6 trillion to the backs of our children after telling us when Bush added 4 trillion that it was unpatriotic. We had lower gas prices and a AAA credit rating as a country, under Bush, who was bad, but this president is 100 times worse – and he has no respect for the Constitution or the Rule of Law. He believes he is king, and he’s an arrogant, 1/2 and 1/2 man with the most narcissistic attitude towards those of us who do not agree with his over-reaching, over-spending, anti-American, country-dividing, un-unified attitude towards us, who also tells us to ‘eat our peas’ as he lives on ‘our’ tax dollars and sinks us deeper into depression economically while living high on the hog – do as he says, not as he does. Regardless of who is in office, he is the worst president in our history, statistics continaully show this, and he treats those of us who don’t like him as if we are 2nd class citizens – never mind that his voting block of blacks, 93% of them, are worse off and poorer (as if that’s a good thing) than when Bush was in office. He’s a thug and a thief. I voted for him in 2008 because I believed his BS of “hope and change” which turned out to be garbage and chains – the usurper and thief-in-chief, as he pads the backs of his special interests and screws the rest of us. I didn’t vote for him because he was black, I voted for him because I was ‘uninformed’, as obviously you are, and may I add that you are no better than the Jesse Jackson’s or Al Sharpton’s who race bait, which is the complete antithesis of what MLK stood for and died for, and you should be ashamed of yourself. Don’t spew that hate in places where we obviously, don’t agree with you because we know better. God Bless America, may She survive this assault on her Beacon.

        YAY Heather!! You go, girl! You have more balls than almost all the cowardly Pubbies put together.

        Heather, May I copy and re-post your factual rant? God save the USA.

      “…and now he’s doing great.

      ROTFLMAO – you gotta love the true believers


    • deesposito1

      And you love him because of his skin color! When 90+ percent of blacks vote the way you do…that is RACISM!

      Obama has borrowed more money in four years than ALL presidents combined, from George Washington to George W Bush. That is a FACT!
      To say it has anything to do with color is ridiculous. I don’t care if he’s magenta he is going to crash the dollar & enslave our children & our children’s children! The worst part is he’s doing it on purpose.
      It’s called the Cloward Piven strategy. The goal is to destroy our constitution & subjugate us under a communist dictatorship! You really MUST stop listening to the state controlled propaganda outlets in the main stream media & do some research as to what is being done to your country!
      A good place to start is http://www.commieblaster.com (then click on Obama Crimes). It links to many various news sources that report on the important things that the MSM has been censoring.
      This is about America, not color..

      Obama is the vampire sucking the life out of the economy. Obama supporters are uneducated, ignorant, selfish,lazy, welfare cheats and Hollywood elites. Moochers electing looters to steal from producers.

    • turfbarn80

      Yes, he’s doing great but we aren’t. He’s purged patriotic Americans from all levels of government and replaced them with Muslims, atheists and Communists. Poverty is up but he still invites millions of illegal aliens to flood the border and overload the welfare system. If you think this is a racial issue you’re in serious denial. Kiss your country goodbye and blame yourself.

    IT ALL STARTED WITH REAGAN and his deregulation of our banking system.
    Buch and Chainy and their two wars and even more deregulation that lead to

    the housing market and banking collapse that through us into this quandary
    of constant corruption

    Oh, and giving corporations person-hood kinda set up the sinking economy… Buckos…

    • faithandhonor

      You are profoundly ignorant, you buffoon. It was under Clinton’s watch that his sleazoid henchman Robert Rubin engineered the evisceration of the Glass-Steagall Act, which had kept investment and commercial banking seperate, and had kept us safe from predatory banksters for 66 years.

      And can you state exactly HOW corporate personhood set up the sinking economy. What a dope.

    • Barbara

      Sorry zag, the housing market failure was the direct result of affirmative action, forced on us by Billy Clinton. Sub-prime mortgages forced on the banks to lend money to minorities with no documentation of income of employment. Your boy Mr. community Organizer B. Obama lead protest in banks and bankers homes threatening and intimidating banks to go along with their scheme to make everyone a home owner regardless of ability to pay. You are clueless. BTW get a dictionary, your spelling indicates public school education (or lack of).
