    If this guy gets re-elected there will be 4 more years of him crying and complaining about the mess he inherited. When is he actually going to fix anything?

    Notice that they are constantly saying that the economy was worse than they thought. Now that is frightening, Timothy and Barry do not know how to assess the problem, yet we are supposed to trust them.

      He will start fixing things as soon as the Republican controlled congress gets a good thumping in the 2012 elections and soon as they can reform the senates filibusterer rules.

    Obama is the shepherd I did not want.
    He leadeth me beside the still factories.
    He restoreth my faith in the Republican party.
    He guideth me in the path of unemployment for his

    party's sake.
    Yea, though I walk through the valley of the bread

    line, I shall fear no hunger, for his bailouts are with

    me. He has anointed my income with taxes,

    My expenses runneth over.
    Surely, poverty and hard living will follow me all

    the days of my life, And I will live in a mortgaged

    home forever.

      @ joe.. you are a wealth of misinformation. Another one who has failed to learn how important historical dates are...knowing them changes the whole landscape of what history is...and reinforces that dates matter in that people can't lie.

      The TARP $700 billion bailout for financial services industries (big banks) was signed into law on October 3, 2008 by President George W. Bush. On December 19, 2008 President George W. Bush announced a $17.4 billion bail out for Chrysler and GM. this was George W. Bush's Hail Mary Pass at trying to save his presidential reputation for tanking the economy with his poor management and tax breaks for the wealthiest 2% plus two unfunded unnecessary wars. So, thank George W. Bush for both bailouts...

      and tax rates haven't changed from the Bush era...although they surely should for the wealthiest 2%.

      Lucky you ....since you state you have income to be anointed with taxes...so thank your lucky stars whiner.... there are people who would enjoy having income which could be taxed.

      And you whine about being fortunate enough to have a mortgaged home that you can live in forever....a house that has not been foreclosed like so many of your fellow Americans........you can also thank Republicans....Phil Gramm, Robert Leach, and Thomas Bliley for the Gramm,Leach, Bliley Act of 1999 which repealed portions of the Glass-Steagall Act of 1993 which regulated mortgage banking.

      Just remember the bus was over the cliff and we had lost 2.6 million jobs during 2008 not including the tank of the DOW in February/March 2007 and in September 2008....under George W. Bush.

      Things were getting better until the current teapotty members decided to fight President Obama's every attempt to make things better.

      If all you have to complain about is the fact you are wealthy enough to owe taxes, have a job, do not fear hunger, and have a roof over your head.... you really don't have much to whine about.
