        I know you want to try to make your point, but did you have to do it twice? Obama will do, say, bribe, lie, anything that will keep him in power, you don't seem to notice that.

      Hey, you do anything to offend others. THAT IS YOU !

      Unfortunately, you don't have half of the President's intellegence to understand this country, nor yourself.

      Don't like it? No problem, pack up and ship out.. Romney can easily find you a penny job in India. GO!

      You can say this president has a way of lighting up a smile on the face of both the young and old....note the baby and the elderly veteran. Old people and babies know people who are confortable to be with, and respond accordingly.

      Frank can't get over the fact that 80,000 jobs produced last month is a whole heck of lot better than the 11,400 per day that were being lost during 2007 and 2008.

        Coddled – Verb: Treat in an indulgent or overprotective way: "Obama has been coddled his whole life."

    Obama to baby Caption: You'll owe the govt $20000 before you're six.

      Baby to Republicans – "No thanks to you."

        Bay to Obama, "Why do you want to abort me even after I'm born?"

        Reported on Fox News this morning, – At the end of the last Republican presidency before Obama took office, 750,000 JOBS LOST PER MONTH. And, all you can do Frankie, is attack the creation of 80,000 jobs created in June.

    80,000 doesn't even keep up with the retirement/birth rate!!
    We were told that after the stimulus passed unemployment would NOT go above 8% - LIE!
    We were told that at this point unemployment would be below 6% - LIE!
    We were told 2 summers ago that it was "The Summer of Recovery" - LIE!
    I guess it doesn't matter if Obama lies and makes outrageous promises, you'll still lap it up like a pig at a feeding trough.

      Do you really expect that he foresaw the layoff of thousands of people by Republican govenors?? But, you don't want to talk about that little truth because it doesn't suit your agenda.

      As far as I can see, Frank,you are happy to slurp slop anywhere. Doesn't make your sucking it through a straw anymore refined. Even when you raise your pinkie.

      In Ohio even with the auto industry being pummeled by the George Bush failed economy it really never got much above 8%....and that was during the worse..we are now at 7.3%...due to the auto industry bail out....and a lot of shovel ready projects that were actually ready.

      Here is a history lesson since history is obviously your weak subject.

      In Frank's delusional mind, the GOP only creates jobs, and has no control over jobs losses or over the price of gas when they are in office.

    Speaking in Sandusky, Ohio on July 5, President Barack Obama used the first-person pronouns β€œI” and β€œme” a combined 117 times in a speech that lasted about 25 minutes and 32 seconds. – He's concerned only with himself.

    Americn businesses are sitting on 2 Trillion Dollars. Republicans defend that by saying that they are uncertain about the economy so won't spend it.
    Well, seems to me that if you don't start hiring people, less and less people will buy your products because less and less people have the money to buy them.

    Obama to baby: "I left you so much debt, you going to be busy the rest of your life and over"

    Obama might be thinking "Hurray kid you own Trillion$ and You will remember me" or "Didn't the mother used the medical benefits of contraceptive pills?" or "Did the parents thought about availing the Plan Parenthood abortion benefits?" or "Another government entitlement beneficiary, thanks to me"

    Baby to Republicans – "Why did Republicans add $8 Billion Dollars more to the Defence Budget than asked for by the Defence Dept.? Planning to send me off to war? Will you demand I serve before I'm even out of grade school? Or, make me guard your vacation home in the Caymen Islands before I'm out of diapers?"

      Defense. Wasn't implying that they were trying to take down fences, the buffalo might roam, God forbid.

      Baby to Liberals. $16,000,000,000,000 debt divided by 300,000,001 people = $53,3333.

        Baby – No thanks to Republicans. It'll only get worse if they get back in – then you'll really be wettin' your pants.
