So, what you're saying is that only the issues that YOU care about are relevant?

Anyway..
  • Turned around one of the worst financial crises in history.
  • Got Bin Laden
  • Iran Deal
  • Record levels of job growth
  • 2/3 reduction in the Federal deficit

We good now?
1. The financial crisis is far from being turned around - more people are on food stamps than ever before (up 42% under Obama), the rate of underemployment is higher than when he took office, and we are slowly spiraling into another financial crisis because he didn't fix the last one, despite 7 years of runway.

2. The Iran deal is a catastrophe - they get the bomb, they get $400M in frozen assets plus $1.3B in interest from the US taxpayer.

3. Record levels of job growth? Not exactly. Again - see the U6 numbers - we are barely back to where we were before Obama took office.

4. The federal debt was $10.6T when Obama took office. It's now $19T, and will hit $20T before he leaves office. Regarding the deficit, Obama did absolutely nothing to reduce spending - so nothing he did is sustainable, and therefore not effective. But we happily shelled out $1.3B in taxpayer dollars to Iran.

CNN just ran a headline and story...

The Dallas Morning News endorses hillary clinton.
Not one word in the article about the fact that they endorsed her for the democratic canidate and Kaisich for the republican.

Such forthright reporting.

So Hillary loses NH by 22%, but gets the same number of delegates as Bernie? Does that bother any democrats on this thread- that their votes don't count in the face of the 475 Super Delegates? In essence, a democrat's vote is only worth 82% of a vote.

This is disgusting.
They are rigging the game to give the worse possible candidate a clear path to the general election.
Despicable.

This is part of the normal economic cycle.

Don't get me started on this crap. I can turn this forum inside-out with this information.

Extended it how? How could you even claim such, unless you had the ability to see an alternative reality? Just hogwash bullshit spouted from people who don't known shit.

Iran Deal aka Raw Deal
Record level of "would you like fires with that" job growth. Most of the jobs are low paying service industry jobs.
Cannot comment on the last one not sure what the deficit was before he came in.
How is the slowing markets in Asia Obama's fault?

And it should mean he deserves the credit - by this measure any time anything OR good happens, it's the faultof the military and intelligence agencies, notthe executive branch. Got it.

Iran deal is straight.

As opposed to 0 job growth?

Can't comment on the last one because you're not well read on anything in this conversation.

I'm not going to waste my time doing research for you. If you think the financial crisis was well managed enjoy your opinion. Objective realities say otherwise. There are a couple of hints in my post. Do a little reading.

Lol!

Like I said before, you have nothing to stand on.

Don't bother doing my research, you should focus on actually doing research altogether, and stop getting news from Sean Hannity

I hate Hannity. He's a mountebank.

Prove you wrong? Dude, you made a absolutely idiotic statement that cannot be proven, and are asking ME to prove you wrong?

Are you kidding?

So i have to ask, are you a giver or a taker (giver meaning paying taxes). Do you not understand that these two clowns want to take more and more of your money and give it away? I guess if you get your way you will be both, giving your money away while taking it in the shorts.

I pay taxes and I also understand Bernie's tax plan well. Do you understand the savings millions of Americans will have on healthcare and education if implemented? Makes sense to me.

I want to see the look on the liberal clown's faces when the bottom falls out and they realize they can fix a flat tire or have anything to defend themselves with. LOL!

After watching the clown show last night, how could anyone vote for one of those bozos?
