Nonsense. It helps to expand news sources outside the I-hate-Obama echo chamber. According to Princeton economist Alan Blinder and Mark Zandi, the chief economist at Moodys Analytics, this President's decisions helped you and me and every other American dodge a second Great Depression. Without the combination of the Wall Street bailout, the bank bailout, the emergency lending and asset purchases + the Obama administration’s stimulus program, our nation’s GDP would have continued to fall, we'd have millions fewer jobs, and our economy would be experiencing a continued down spiral today. I don't agree with everything he has done. Hate the fact that there were no conditions attached to the Wall Street / bank bailouts. And our military spending continued to grow. He did not close Gitmo either. But in the balance, Mitt's proposals are WORSE. He advised GM should go bankrupt without any government assistance. Today that company is the global leader in sales. Obama made the right choice to prevent a rippling of millions more unemployment at a critical time. And if you, like many of us, are worried about the national debt, how will Mr. Romney pay for his proposed $7 trillion defense spending INCREASE? He would need to gut $9.6 Trillion - somewhere - to balance the budget, including a big chunk from the Middle Class. Ready for eliminating the mortgage income tax credit so we can send more money to the Pentagon and the wealthiest 1%? Ready to use more personal income for sick, aged, wounded, disabled or hungry relatives? Saddle up. Go ahead and vote for horse hockey if you want. Because that's what this nation will have if Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are elected. @ LInda Storch: “Obama HAS DONE ABSOLUTELY NOTHING FOR THIS COUNTRY.”

It is your job to show what Obama has either done or not done based on what he said he'd do. The video is out there showing what Obama promised, but you are not showing it. This isn't about Mitt Romney. This is about did Obama live up to his campaign promises and has he improved this country the way he said he would. Are we better off today versus four years ago? It is an easy question to answer. Do you still own your home. Have you lost your job in the last four years. Have you taken a pay cut in the last four years. Real questions that effect real Americans. The price of gas is still extremely high. Food prices are going through the roof. Both of those add up on already stressful budgets and they are also legitimate factors. I don't need to be told why to not vote for Romney. I need to be told why I should re-elect Barack Obama.
