How does your weekly/monthly grocery bill compare to what is was last year, 2 years ago, 3 years ago? CPI (inflation up a little over 2%, is not in my world) is not a meaningful indicator to me. When the left throws out the term racist, they must be talking about their own party. In the Duke Lacrosse accusations, which side jumped on the racism bandwagon? In the Travon Martin case, which side jumped on the racism band wagon? And Yet what has Eric Holder done about the New Black Panthers and (what seems like a clear cut case) the federal election violations? How do you like the current price of gas?

Those were the worst years for the American economy since the Great Depression. We didn't start to see even a glimmer of recovery until after the Republicans took back the House in their historic landslide victory of November 2010.

Whip the populace up and it becomes easier to pass stuff that people normally wouldn't allow to pass. SSI Comes to mind, the Bank Bailouts. The facts are that most Americans have no concept of the complexity of the modern world, so when they vote they are not making informed decisions, and the people believe what they are told because they don't know any different, which means they can be manipulated.

And that is about the stupidest, most moronic thing you have posted. In a long line of stupid and moronic things. WHY do you believe in your addled brain that the president wants the country to crash? What would he gain by such a thing? You jerks on the Right love to smugly vomit forth garbage like this with NOTHING but your paranoid delusions fueling it. It's no wonder the Right Wing is losing favor in this country, with half-wits and dullards like you supporting them. Get a freakin' clue. “But I think Obama’s does NOT lack economic sense… he actually WANTS the country to crash!! — It’s criminal and treasonous!!!”
