Barack Obama, our next President

Which is misleading. That expansion was fueled by a housing bubble which was blown by Greenspan's low interest rates.
When it finally popped, much of the job growth you cite went with it.
Bush left office with one of the lowest job growth rates of all time.
Bush was doing fine until Democrats took control of Congress in 2006. This was the same Congress that included Obama and dozens of left wingers who tried to push unlimited bad legislation trough the system. Bush fought aggressively to veto much of the Pelosi,Reed,Obama etc onslaught but did fail at the end to stop some of the destruction that they wanted. I can only blame Bush for not stopping Obama and his left wing friends in their tracks.

It's obvious to everyone that taxing the rich won't cover the bill for Obama's government. They're going to tax everyone. Right now they are putting raising taxes on everyone until after the election.
The Democrats have no intention of making the government smaller and spend less money.
Everyone who votes for Obama is voting for either higher taxes on themselves, or the dissolution of our government, thus country.
That 47 percent of households that currently pay no net taxes will start paying. Simple arithmetic shows that.
Good-parasites should have to suffer along with everyone else too.

Government Getting Smaller in the U.S.

FOR the first time in 40 years, the government sector of the American economy has shrunk during the first three years of a presidential administration.

Spending by the federal government, adjusted for inflation, has risen at a slow rate under President Obama. But that increase has been more than offset by a fall in spending by state and local governments, which have been squeezed by weak tax receipts.

In the first quarter of this year, the real gross domestic product for the government — including state and local governments as well as federal — was 2 percent lower than it was three years earlier, when Barack Obama took office in early 2009.

The last time the government actually got smaller over the first three years of a presidential term was when Richard M. Nixon was president. That decrease was largely because of declining spending on the Vietnam War.

The election was in 2008, Obama was 'chosen' early that summer. Consumer confidence and economic confidence suffered deeply by the consequences of Obama's nomination by the Democrats. There are always consequences from every action taken. The consequences of Obama where worse than the Democrats thought,our entire country has felt the wrath of The DNC. The Democrats didn't see the problem until the 2010 elections,although most of us saw it in 2008.

"The House and Senate Thursday approved their versions of a fiscal 2010 budget"
Feeling stupid yet?
Obama has submitted only 2 budgets in 4 years, and the sum total of votes for his budgets are ZERO. That's NOTHING, NADA, ZILCH.
You really need to work on your ability to read and comprehend the written English language.
The House at least, always runs their version you nitwit. The President's proposed budget framework is not a piece of legislation.

Gary Johnson could catch presidential race by surprise
By Douglas E. Schoen

Published May 12, 2012

With his name slated to be on every state ballot in the country in November, Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson is an important voice – bringing bold new ideas to the table that appeal to voters across the political spectrum.

Johnson, a Republican who served as governor of New Mexico from 1995 to 2003, is running on a platform that includes slashing government spending to balance the federal budget by 2013, ending wars the U.S. in involved in, and drug reform -- beginning with the legalization of marijuana but extending all the way to the war on drugs, drug policy, relations with Latin America, and even law enforcement policies and priorities-- issues that neither of the two major candidates President Obama and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney are pursuing right now.

Having received the Libertarian nomination in Las Vegas last weekend, Johnson must now cross a new threshold to ensure that his voice is heard and give these important initiatives a lot of exposure -- achieving the 15 percent required by the Commission on Presidential Debates to participate.

To date, Johnson has been polling between 6 and 9 percent nationally – several points shy of what he needs.

If the two parties continue to move to the extreme left and right, and if our economic situation continues to remain bleak, it is conceivable that a fresh face emerging would find a degree of responsiveness in a political environment that is as hostile as I have ever seen.

Last weekend, voters in Greece rejected both major political parties amid a dire fiscal situation there, while a disenchanted French electorate voted out President Nicolas Sarkozy. The European elections speak to a major anti incumbency trend that is likely to have profound implications for the 2012 presidential election.

Voters across the board are unsatisfied with the current political system. Most people think that neither party is effective at solving the country’s problems, congressional ratings are at an all-time low, and support for both the Democratic and Republican parties is on the decline.

Amid this toxic political climate, a recent poll put out by Harvard's Institute of Politics suggests Libertarian ideas are gaining traction with those age 18 to 29. Moreover, polling conducted by my firm, Douglas E. Schoen LLC, has found that there is a great deal of support for a third-party alternative to the current two-party system, and voters are receptive to voting for alternatives to the Democratic and Republican Presidential tickets in 2012.

With neither Obama nor Romney offering an overarching message that has been able to resonate with an electorate that is becoming increasingly cynical about anyone's ability to fix this country’s ongoing, trenchant and most vexatious problems – Gary Johnson’s voice is one that needs to be heard.

Bottom line: At time of massive dissatisfaction with our political system, we need to expand rather than narrow the debate.
