    I don't see why Obama can't run on the economy. Specifically when the problem is GOP obstruction

    The Economy is a lot better than it was when he took office, and would be even better if not for the Republicans and their historic opposition to anything Obama proposes. Even their own horrible ideas.
    LOL, Gus, there's your first mistake..........the economy ISN'T better than it was when he took office and they KNOW that it isn't better because of Obama making the business climate very uncertain as well as his spend, spend, spend "we can't cut any spending" ways. He has tripled the deficit since he took office.

    He can try to run on "obstruction" but it won't work. They haven't obstructed nearly as much as Democrats like to portray, and if Republicans hadn't done some obstructing the economy would be way worse than it is.

    1. Maybe. I suppose it depends on your perspective. There are many

    people who don't know there is a economic crisis for some families.... But having 1-3 children living in poverty is horrible. That's a lot of hungry children and very stressed parents.
    Really? There are people who don't know that there is an economic crisis? Very few people do not know there is an economic crisis........unemployment has been at all time highs, business people are not hiring and are not expanding because of the economy, many can't afford to pay their mortgage......but there are people out there that don't know there is an economic crisis and some people are really having difficulties.

    4. To the OP's point, the Dems need to make voters understand

    that the GOP is sitting on its hands rather than do anything to help people out of these situations...all to make the President look bad.

    Politics before the good of the nation, plain and simple.

    5. Freedom platform

    Freedom from having to go to work, freedom from home ownership.

    I'd say that you are an empty glass that isn't satisfied. You are lazy and angry. You are liberal, and hostile to those who aren't lazy and work. They live to contribute and make the American dream of home ownership happen. You sit back and leech off of the largesse of other people's labor. I;m betting that you are an empty glass, and worse, a dirty one.

    What about all the bills the House passes and Reid sits on? How come that isn't obstructionism?

    It's only "obstructionism" if the DIMoRATS don't get their way. When they do it, it is for our own good.:mad:
