    It would be political suicide to tell everyone he plans to finish his rise to Dictator.

    most of this is what he just says and look at everything he promised back in '08... only a small portion of what he said he actually went through and a lot of these topics hes addressed over and over and they have still yet to happen or show any effect

    900 billion... wow such an improvement when he hit a deficit of one trilliion dollars last year... still the highest of any president for a yearly deficit

    the job growth you see was predicted to increase even further last year but it stagnated and then slowly moderated to a small increase... plus the past couple months it hit almost a standstill and has yet to show much improvement... bear in mind the unemployment rate has stayed about consistent for the past 2 years... and that is the rate that exempts certain people that do not have jobs so we do not know the actual trend

    please they have yet to decrease any nuclear arms here in the US they been more so concentrated on making sure Iran doesnt have nukes...

    seems like you do not know where our main source of oil really comes from... Canada we only get a portion from the Middle East... and being that he denied the Keystone pipeline of course Canadian oil imports will go down

    many people have come out and said the reason for the decrease in illegal immigration is the fact that the economy here is not much better than how it is in mexico and their desire for the American dream has little possibility these days

    you really would state biased sources on job outsourcing... GM still has a good portion of labor overseas and many compan...

    you really would state biased sources on job outsourcing... GM still has a good portion of labor overseas and many companies as well... in fact a good portion of big companies over half their labor is overseas... and the fact that the income tax in this country is the second highest in the WORLD no one would come here to do business... there have been many companies that have packed up and moved out of the country TODAY and many of these are small businesses... i worked for a company last year is a good example of this and have communicated with many others that are in process for this... many of these companies produce the raw material we need for manufacturing

    1.4 trillion dollars... since the fiscal year ends in Oct. both bush and Obama share responsibility for the 2009 deficit he inheritied

    ask economists that is a huge drop almost 45% drop in job growth over that period of time that leads to a level off and hard to come back to

    like i said 2 years... and since 2 years ago it has leveled off around 8.5%... and if you look at how they categorize people who are "unemployed" they take out the number of people who have given up looking for work... which still means you have no job so the 8% is not correct to reflect the actual unemployment rate

    the pipeline was to direct down to texas to be refined and would be up to the refinery to send out for domestic use or exports... so doing that we decrease exports if it was to send out to china or india... and they have strong ties with Irans oil so they do not have too much need for Canadas oil

    you really dont watch much cnn, abc, msnbc do you... a lot of their programs are left leaning and do have biased views on how they portray political issues and the WST is known to have left leaning writers ive read many articles from them depicting many biased issues

    your article of taxes in this country is very misleading so you know... it reflects taxes in comparison to GDP not actual tax rates... ...

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...

    they are at lows only because of tax bills and loopholes that are being added to an already complex tax system... and he is campaigning today to increase taxes on investments to the corporate levels that are reflected above... so much for lowering the tax rate

    He did not improve education... were still falling behind the ranks worldwide with education and we still show no signs of progress for education... all he is doing is nationalizing it and making it standardized... thats where most of the money went to was to increase standardized testing (which we all know is a fail in the education spectrum for reality)

    He did no end bush tax cuts
    He agreed to continue them up until recently he has had chances of ending them when he didnt... and he has not lowered or raised any taxes just modify tax loopholes

    they do not standardize their education. Switzerland is the leading country in education and their approach to the field is much much different than how it is here... they minimize testing and apply real world applications to their education... China has a similar setting and they make their students think of how they are suppose to approach problems... why do you think it is a stereotype for Asians to go into engineering?

    here we test kids constantly and the only thing that these tests do is improve memorization and not critical thinking, brainstorming, and other concepts that are needed for the real world... Florida is one of the states with the lowest education ranking and all they do is test you on topics that are not even used for the most part of your life and they do this from elementary school all the way to graduation

    the states that have little testing in schools in this country have shown better rankings in education than the ones that constantly test

    you can even ask many companies today and they will tell you that many people in this country do not have the skill sets that they need for their business and production

    He did not end the Iraq war. Our combat forces were withdrawn pursuant to agreements between the U.S. and Iraq accomplished during Bush's Presidency.

    "He did not end the war"
    Actually he did not.
    Obie made a commitment for support in Afghanistan until 2020. Troops were withdrawn from Iraq according to the Bush plan. Contractors are still in Iraq.)

    "He did not improve education"
    Actually he did not.

    "He did not end the Bush tax cuts"

    They are.
    They are NOT private contractors.
    They are independent contractors.
    They are under contract to the government.
    That's what the word "independent" means in "independent contractors".

    But it really doesn't matter. Either way, whether independent or private, whether paid directly or indirectly, they are in Iraq, they are mercenaries, and the US government is paying for them.
