    he has spent $5 trillion on his special interests and it has had some affect but the problem is we now have the debt and the money he spent was on things where there were just one time benefits. The other problem is that he can't take credit for GM since he gave them $35 billion dollars which they haven't paid back and GM would have been better off reforming in Ch 11 bankruptcy proceedings....which is, by the way, a form of bailout.

    Yes he does. The question is, will he? We all believe his goal was to weaken the United States so it would be on par with his friends in the Middle East and we would be ripe for takeover. I really don’t think he will crow about that publicly. I would like to get my hands on the recordings in the White House during his private time. I believe that would be a real eye opener. The true BHO moments.

    Bragging rights? Hardly. Culpability is more like it.

    He had a bulletproof majority in both houses and could have passed just about anything with merit in his first two years in office. He wasted it shoving Obamacare down our throats ! To those that say no it wasn't you are WRONG ! As I said he had a majority but the bill was such cr*p that he had to bribe and bully some of his own party to get it passed 219 / 212 if I remember correctly. He COULD have used that to get some real good done but no he HAD to get Obamacare through ! HE OWNS IT, ENJOY !

    He broke it, choked it, demonized the job creators, and manipulated BLS stats to ignore those who have fallen into despair and given up hope of finding a job... so yes, he owns all of that (and little more) and cannot shed it just to help his re-election chances...

    We're not losing jobs at a pace of 700,000 a month and we're not contracting by 6%.
    Congressional scholars Thomas Mann and Norman Ornstein are no strangers to D.C. politics. The two of them have been in Washington for more than 40 years — and they're renowned for their carefully nonpartisan positions.

    But now, they say, Congress is more dysfunctional than it has been since the Civil War, and they aren't hesitating to point a finger at who they think is to blame.

    "One of the two major parties, the Republican Party, has become an insurgent outlier — ideologically extreme; contemptuous of the inherited social and economic policy regime; scornful of compromise; unpersuaded by conventional understanding of facts, evidence and science; and dismissive of the legitimacy of its political opposition," they write in their new book, It's Even Worse Than It Looks.

    Excellent choice to cite - Mann and Ornstein, liberal Washington Post Columnists... who were panned with the headline ""PBS Hypes Liberal 'Congress Watchers' Who Hit GOP as Extreme, With No Use for 'Facts'...
    You posted extreme liberal leftists who purport to be centrist to make their wacky POV sound almost legitimate, and their recently manufactured "demi-facts" sound plausible.

    Our economy would be growing at a faster rate and less people would be hurting now if he had listened to people before the stimulus. He had a one shot chance and he blew it.

    From the White House blog:
    The Employment Situation in April by Alan Krueger 4 May 2012 @ 9:30 a.m.
    “Today’s employment report provides further evidence that the economy is continuing to heal from the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression, but much more remains to be done to repair the damage caused by the financial crisis and the deep recession.”
    Translation: As we continue to tighten the tourniquet around the neck of those Americans (those who have stop looking for work) in order to stop the financial bleeding that is the U.S. economy.
