    Mr. President,

    Things are starting to turn back in your favor and by extension the state of this country is turning favorable. There is little chance of a double dip recession much to the disappointment of the GOP/Tea-Turds as they have done all they could to make sure this country fails, to assure you are a one term president.

    Keep working fella! Even the GOP/Tea-Turds can't ignore the progress...though they will lie its even happening.

      I'm sure the president sat in the daily briefing this morning, just waiting for it to be over with so he could hop on and read your words of support. Thank goodness you're on here to tell him to keep his chin up. It's clearly the most important use of your time.

        ....and it chaps your behind that the GDP went up 2.5% in the last quarter. I will make no apologies in cheering for the HOME TEAM which is this country. That means I love my country, and do not ascribe to the Rush Limberger wish for this president to fail, and therefore by extension, this country fails.

        Is that your position? Because your sarcasm seems to leave that as an open question. IF you want this president to fail, that's your right, but please don't couch it like every american needs to join you in hating this country.

        Now go lay down and take your meds. As this country continues to improve, you are going to become increasingly frustrated.

    Bozo the Clown here to answer you Trace 🙂 Just curious, if the GOP has "successfully blocked" so much of the legislation put forth by the President, and worked to finally get the Dems in the Senate to drop their roadblocks of demands to pass the parts that had bi-partisan support, shouldn't they get some of the credit for this bounce back? And altenatively, does it suggest that we've all just been getting our "panties in a wad" over everything, because ultimately the gov't has less to do with it than we would like/hope?

    Just an alternate viewpoint, as always.

      @ C-Lo You mean pass the parts of every piece of legislation that only benefits the rich and well-connected...without passing any parts of legislation that would provides help for those who do need help....Gotcha!

        Um, no, I mean like the parts of the legislation that ended the 3% tax withholding on small businesses contracting with the gov't–that was actually put in place by Bush. I know this is miniscule in the grand scheme of things, but that's kinda the point. Even miniscule, bi-partisan support can barely gain footing–in this case because of the Senate. As steveo has said, BOTH sides are culpable. And as I've said, we sit around waiting for crumbs from DC/corporations rather than going out and baking our own bread.

      You don't have to do the "Bozo the Clown Thing". You provide more intelligent thoughtful pushback than our typical "bumper sticker Obama haters"

      C-Lo, another part of my frustration with the GOP/Tea Pee Pants party people continually say the "Stimulus Act / Re-building American" initative was a failure. THOSE ARE OUT RIGHT LIES. I believe that Keynesian policies actually worked. We tried trickle down and it never worked. The facts are the facts. We were losing 750K jobs per month before Obama took office...I WAS ONE OF THEM. Then by end of 2009, I got the best job I've ever had. I guess it was just a coincidence the Stimulus Act was in place. Whatever, allow me to live in my fantasy world, but I'm grateful to Obama for having the courage, vision, and taking 2.5 years of criticism for doing it.

      Like a many americans, I just needed a job. Its really not smart (I won't call names) to think that the majority of americans who are unemployed would rather receive a unemployment check than have a real, stable, permanent good paying job.

      I apologize for supporting this president but I believe in giving credit where it is due.

      Have a wonderful day

      @ C-Lo
      If you will check the 3% withholding tax on government contractors. Yes, the legislation past in 2005, and was signed by George W. Bush in 2006.
      It was never actually put into in effect, we cannot say it was ended since no one was ever taxed under the legislation (the legislation was not to take effect until January 2012). Since it was overwhelmingly overturned by congress with the blessing Obama administration 10/27/2011, it will probably pass the senate.

      For the sake of statistics: in 2005 both the House and Senate were overwhelmingly Republican with a Republican President. Which means they were not opposed to tax increases when they held the presidency.

      Read: "House Overwhelmingly approves repeal of 3% withholding law for federal contractors"

      In all honesty, skilled bakers normally turn out perfectly good bread which saves everyone else a lot of time.
