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.GusFring (12 posts) Click to send private message to this author Click to view this author's profile Click to add this author to your buddy list Click to add this author to your Ignore list Tue Nov-29-11 01:55 AM
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.
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.
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.midnight (1000+ posts) Journal Click to send private message to this author Click to add this author to your buddy list Click to add this author to your Ignore list Tue Nov-29-11 02:08 AM

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.

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.
