    Not likely.

    He spent the first two years of his term actually ignoring the biggest problems the nation faced. Instead he wasted his time pushing through an unpopular bill that will eventually be struck down as unconstitutional.

    IF he wins, yes, he will show a lot of people how wrong they were. Unfortunately the rest of us will suffer right along with his supporters, when thanks to his policies, the dollar crashes, gasoline and everything else goes through the roof, freedom of speech is curtailed, our right to defend ourselves is stripped, and our military is gutted.

    Still shoveling that one out there? With Obama, a second term would be nothing more than being kept back in the third grade to repeat the same ole crap.

    No!

    Why? Glad you asked:

    About 15 million Americans of working age have no job and are looking for work.

    Every fifth man in America is out of a job.

    Fewer Jobs. There are 5.5 million fewer jobs right now than there were when Obama was inaugurated.

    Employment Levels. Employment has been below the pre-recession peak for over 50 consecutive months.

    U3 Unemployment Stats. This is the 8.2% figure quoted by Obama for last month. This counts only people who have applied for a job in the previous four weeks.

    U6 Unemployment Stats. This figure counts the number of people who have applied for jobs in the previous 6 weeks. It also includes people who are working in part-time jobs who want to work full time. The U6 unemployment rate is now around 15%

    College Graduates In 2007 90% of all college graduates found a job. Today that figure is 56%.
    Nearly 87 million Americans are NOT in the labor force.

    Dropping Out. Since Obama was sworn in about 3 million people have dropped out of the jobs market. These people are no longer even bothering to look for a job. If they were still in the market – still hopeful – the unemployment rate would be about 10.8%.

    Economic Growth after Great Depression. In 1934, 35 and 36 our economy growed at 11%, 9% and 13%. Economic ...

    Economic Growth after Great Depression. In 1934, 35 and 36 our economy growed at 11%, 9% and 13%. Economic growth in 2010 was 3%. In 2011 it was 1.7%. This year we’re running between 2 and 3%.

    Ethnic Jobless Rates. For young workers 20 to 24 the unemployment rate is 13%. For Hispanic teenagers it’s 30.5%. For black teenagers it’s 37.9%.

    Private Sector Hiring. Through June of 2011 private sector hiring was 10 times slower after the passage of ObamaCare than it was in the 16 months prior to ObamaCare.

    New Businesses. We need 1 million new businesses every year to sustain growth. We’re running about 400,000 right now.

    Layoffs and Hiring. In the first months of 2012 layoffs have risen 18% from a year ago. Hiring plans have dropped 82%.

    Per Capita Income. In May of 2008 per capital income in the U.S. was at $37,752. It’s now at $37,606. Adjust this for inflation and you have $36,641 in 2008 dropping to $32,600 now. This is the first time since the 1930s that inflation-adjusted incomes have decreased in America.

    Welfare Over $1 trillion spent on government entitlement programs in the last two years.

    Welfare Increase A 5,500% jump in means tested welfare since 1970.

    Welfare percentage Over ½ of households in America have someone receiving entitlement checks.

    Food Stamps Under Obama food stamp use has increased by 41%.

    Every 7th person you pass on the sidewalk is on food stamps.

    EBT Cards The increase in the use of EBT cards is 135%.

    " U3 Unemployment Stats. This is the 8.2% figure quoted by Obama for last month. This counts only people who have applied for a job in the previous four weeks. " ................. I'm glad you brought that up . The " REAL " numbers are THROUGH THE ROOF ! By " not counting " the unemployed in their figures , it's easy to see how they get 8.2% . Here in OHIO the " REAL NUMBER " is over 20% when you count the unemployed .

    Did you know that EVERY WEEK , there are at least 350,000 " NEW UNEMPLOYED - FIRST TIME SIGNERS FOR BENIFITS " .......... ( FACT ! ) .. Now take that number X 4 = 1,400,000 NEW UNEMPLOYED - Every Month !

    Thank You for bringing this out in the open . People need to be reminded every day .
    Remember This ---------- FIGURES LIE & LIARS FIGURE ! When you use the governments own figures and compare them to The Official Unemployment Numbers ...... They Don't Add Up !

    If you spent $37,752 on buying gasoline, you could have purchased 20,973 gallons (@$1.80/g)
    Today's $37,606 will buy you only 10,028 gallons (@$3.75/g) or $48% of what you bought in May '08.

    If you spent $37,753 to buy GOLD on May 29, 2008 (@ $877.20/oz) you would have purchased 43.04oz of gold. Today's $37,606 will buy you only 22.61oz of gold (@ $1662.98/oz) or 51% of what you bought in May '08

    Your purchasing power today, is HALF of what it was when Barry took office... Obama/Bernacki's Quantitative Easing (flooding the market with printed money) has STOLEN HALF of your earnings by diluting the value of the currency.

    And you wonder WHY your food costs have gone up... or why a Ford Taurus costs $45,000 when it cost less than $20k just 5 years ago...Harry, Barry, Nancy and their Band of Flying Monkeys are ROBBING YOU BLIND!

    Obama will forever remain in the history books for being the FIRST Black American President and possibly for being the ONLY person in ALL of History that recieved a Nobel Peace Prize for no other reason then for the color of his skin..


    But,,,,,He'll NEVER be better known for anything more then his two most irrefutable accomplishments..

    He has guarenteed that the NEXT Black President cannot avoid going down in History as America's BEST Black President and he has accomplished something that almost ALL Americans had thought IMPOSSIBLE..

    He has raised Jimmy Carter from the DUBIOUS distinction of being America's WORST President in ALL of American History..

    I thought I chose NO. Anyway history will label his claim to fame as the first Black Prez. The issues good or bad will be a small footnote on paragraph 3. People have short term memory when it comes to politics. It's no longer about the issues like in the earlier years. It's a public relations blitz. People believe what the TV tells them.

    I would say that when history judges the two of them, you are correct, Obama will be under Carter.

    As far as things right now, Obama is still above Carter, but neither the economy, nor government spending are truly exposed for what they are, yet. The shell game is still going on.

    Based upon congress's actions in refusing to pass or compromise on several bills that create jobs and stem the negative forces at play in our economy, all of which had the support of 67% to 80% of the general public demonstrates who is not doing their job. If you made a sincere effort to confirm that you could relate to my opinion.

    I don't know where you are getting your numbers or which bills you are referring to. The biggest negatives affecting our economy are the Health Care bill, having the Federal Reserve crank up the printing presses, having the EPA excessively increase regulations, blocking new oil exploration on federally owned land, and 3 years of $Trillion dollar plus deficits (let's not forget that refusing to cut government spending has also resulted in out national credit rating being downgraded, too!)
