If everybody knows how terrible a president Obama has been, then why is he still leading in the polls in Ohio. Your state is going to decide this election.

Y'all going to re-elect the guy that's giving all our jobs to illegals and trillions of dollars to Wall Street? Now if for once the mainstream media would stop covering up for him he'll get busted for his role in "Fast and Furious." His executive order to halt it's investigation is admitting his guilt.

And, shame on the all the women who still like this jerk in the White House. Stop judging books by their cover. Underneath all that charm is an extremely evil individual.

The African Americans are STILL supporting Obama to the tune of about 98 percent, even though he's not supplying them jobs. I have no further comment.

Whites are still supporting Obama in huge numbers because he is still the most honest, honorable qualified man for the job.

Bigots in congress, wealthy racist businessmen wasted precious billions and collecting donated millions to keep frivolous law suits in the American court system trying to prove President Obama was not born in the US or that his birth certificate was a fake, so he could not be on the 2012 ballot in some states. All cases were proven by the courts to be right wing conspiracies and lies and political dirty trickery. If only that time and money had been better spent creating jobs instead of promoting hate and fear and blocking the president at every turn.

Mitch McConnell:
"The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president." I thought the Republicans ran on their number one priority being JOBS. They apparently forgot what they promised. Not surprising.

This is how they set about sabotaging Obama's days in office and in the process sabotaged the US economy.

The stimulus package, passed in 2009, when Democrats controlled Congress, increased the number of employed by between 1.4 million and 3.3, so it was a success. What killed the progress was when Republicans won the house in 2010 and began Austerity policies (Austerity is what flung Europe back into recession.) State and local governments were thrown under the bus by the GOP (Spending was evil, yet they shoveled money toward friends with defense contracts and investment bankers.) The Republican austerity policies have killed 611,000 jobs; if not for these jobs cuts the unemployment rate today would be closer to 7%, not its current 8.2%. In 2010 and 2011, 457,00 public sector jobs were butchered.

During his first days, congress displayed their contempt for the President by Republicans holding citizens hostage, threatening to shut the government down until the very wealthy could keep their tax cuts,(fact: congress gets paid during a shut down), by reading the Constitution aloud, and by blocking any and all job bills by the President. Republicans think so little of the sheep that follow them blindly that they symbolically (pointlessly) voted to repel the Affordable Health Care Act 33 times, after it had become law. It cost us 50 million tax dollars for such pointless votes.

These are a few examples of wasted time and taxpayer money but it's easier to blame the black guy instead of the ultra conservative congress members and wealthy conservative business owners like the Kochs, and Trump who have successfully held this nation in a state of paralysis until one of their own could take over.

You can elect Mitt Romney and more Trickle Down Republicans who still believe the failed Bush polices work and this nation will drift back into a recession. It will enter the Depression we narrowly escaped if Romney starts a war with Iran.(Very likely considering his foot & mouth problem) Take a look back at what Republican polices and war did to our economy and will do again if we let a Trickle Down, Friend to the 1%, Republican return to office.

“Creating a potential headache for his campaign, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said big businesses in the U.S. were 'doing fine' in part because they get advantages from offshore tax havens. His comments echoed similar assertions about the state of big business by President Barack Obama which Romney has criticized. They're also a reminder that the GOP candidate has kept some of his personal fortune in low tax foreign accounts. ‘Big business is doing fine in many places,’ Romney said during a campaign fundraiser Thursday [in Minnesota]. ‘They get the loans they need, they can deal with all the regulation. They know how to find ways to get through the tax code, save money by putting various things in the places where there are low tax havens around the world for their businesses.’

Look this Not about color, religious beliefs or sexual orientation; my 1st choice was Herman Cain because he is a JOB creator, well Obamanimics nipped that in the bud real quick. America needs JOBS for the future of our young people, for we cannot survive four more years of the SOS. I Will Vote ROMNEY-RYAN.

I am from Michigan. I lost my job when Bush was President. I ended up loosing everything. We built a plant in China where alot of our manufacturing jobs went. Our CEO then, said that they were building cities of empty buildings for companies to move there. Then came President Obama, and I got my job back, after I did not have one. We are working over time with no 40 hours in sight. Our CEO a few months ago said that despite what you hear on the news, the economy is gettting better. Just this week, I heard from our Engineering manager that we are gettin so much work that we are don't have enough resources to keep up. We are filling up for next year too. As we buy things with the money that we earn, it creates jobs for people to make those things, which creates more jobs and on and on. My job is in the auto industry, if Romney were President, I still would not be working and there would be NO SAFETY NET.
President Obama is working for the middle class and I can say that it working you have to give it more time or we are going to be back in the BUSH years.

A large number of Americans who have been refused health insurance because of preexisting medical conditions received bad news Friday from the Obama administration.
