TIKIMAN87: This country will reap what it has sewn.


When Obama took office the country was losing 800,000 a month. Now he's taking office with a country gaining 170,000 jobs a month. Admit it, your scared the will actually grow back the economy to the glory of the Clinton years.

I missed the story's debut posting... Have the Republicans come out calling Obama a weak leader because he cried on tape yet?

Wouldn't put it past them.

It's growing on average 60k jobs a month after adjust them. it takes 250k jobs created a month to keep up with population growth. We are no where near that number and yet the unemployment number goes down since it's easier to get a check from Obama from doing nothing than to look for a job.

Yeah, run with that.

Obama's re-election seems to have made the stock market shiat itself.

My intuition is that the downturn is less about Obama being re-elected (anyone with half a brain can see how he's been good for the economy the last few years), and more about the fact that there's no election going on anymore, and the next major political thing on people's radar is sequestration, and sequestration would be an absolute death knell to our economy at this point.


And I'm sure Sandy has absolutely NOTHING to do with it, either.

What a lucky coincidence....


Good thing you have such insight on good leadership.

You are still in the echo chamber. You are still listening/believing the propaganda fed to you. You are still detached from reality.

All economic indicators are improving with very few exceptions (e.g., median family income). If food stamps peaked over the summer.

We can help you see the truth but only if you are willing to have an open mind. For example, if the GOP was point to economic indicators (like the U3) before and have suddenly stopped point to it, you have to ask yourself why? Is it because it is no longer a valid economic indicator or is it because it not longer matches the narrative in the echo chamber. Critical thinking is your friend.

When the polls were showing Romney losing. Were the polls wrong or was Romney losing? Think about it.

When the economy tanked during the Bush administration was it because of too much financial regulation or not enough? I can tell you the correct answer and support it with evidence if you like.

When some tells you they can reduce the deficit by cutting taxes, what would your Grade 6 math teacher tell you is the truth?

Yeah! Can you believe a campaign staffer was in a crowded room with a camera on election night waiting for the President to speak to his staff? In what world does that happen?

what you lovely lovely plebes do not yet realize is that when obama speaks of his "important work" and gets choked up, he's not speaking of drone strikes, or passing laws, he is speaking of changing the way the american empire operates on a permanent level. please enjoy your minds being blown open shortly.

TIKIMAN87: hobberwickey: TIKIMAN87: LlamaGirl: I really like Obama. I think he seems like a genuinely good guy. I want to have beers with him and shoot the shiat.

I also want into his pants, but that's not for this thread....

Taking from those who have and giving to those who want it is evil.

It's true, the bible says we should take from those who want and give to those that have. I forget where, maybe Leviticus? Leviticus says a lot.

Funny.

Taking from people who work and giving to poor Obama supports who suck the givernments tits is wrong.


If you want to divide the nation into makers and takers, do you know who the takers are? They are active duty military and seniors. Both republican constituencies, and both groups that I don't think deserve the scorn you're trying to heap on them.

BTW, just curious, how did calling people "parasites" work out as an electoral strategy?

It's not like they're special pants. He puts his pants on like everyone else: one leg at a time, except once they're on, he kills Bin Laden.

Well, he did win a grammy for spoken word recording for the audiobook of "Dreams for My Father." No, really. Between that and his Nobel, he must have the most interesting mantel in the world.

Your entire schtick is based on an infantile fantasy that somewhere out there are a large population of blah people stealing from you.

Take some responsibility for yourself, for god's sake. You are where you are in life, not because of liberals, but because of your obvious personal shortcomings. The sooner you accept that, the better off you'll be.

He'd have the GOP's ass on that mantel if he hadn't handed it back to them.

mainstreet62: Yes, moron. Let's see what happened the first time Obama got elected, shall we?


That was 4 years ago. It's a whole different world, namecaller.

theknuckler_33: What's funny is you thinking the stock market went down because Obama was re-elected after seeing the stock market's performance over the past 3 years and 10 months since he took office.


Look at the trend for the past few months. There are no other breaks like that. The morning after election night, blam.

Vegan Meat Popsicle: jigger: Are you saying the markets will be even farther down by christmas so that's the time to buy?

So your theory here is that if I wanted a profit in my hands to buy Christmas presents, I should wait until Christmas to make my stock purchases?

You sir, are a buffoon.


That's your theory, namecaller. There's no way to deny it.

You suggested I invest based on the information that the market is in decline. Well, anyone but you would wait until they thought it was near another upswing to buy. That was your suggestion to me. For some reason you thought you'd make money this way and I was kinda waiting to hear how that was going to work.

The emotional stress of a long campaign followed by the daily stress of the recession can lead to that type of breakdown.

Yes, because I'm certain that Obama first heard that the guy might have children in his house and then proceeded with Picard-like surety to "make it so." Give me a farking break. There are casualties to a war. Maybe Bush shouldn't have gotten us into that mess in the first place.

Did you not see the guy's face when they went in to kill one of the worst human beings on earth?

That was your suggestion to me. For some reason you thought you'd make money this way and I was kinda waiting to hear how that was going to work.


So, basically, you don't even know how to invest, but you feel compelled to make comments about the direction of the market anyway?

You sir are a buffoon.

Yeah, I could see if we were living in some weird future world where everyone has recording devices in their pockets at all times this getting captured, but this isn't "The Jetsons", people. We live in the real world and this is an obvious scripted set up.


Just like the 47% statement by Romney at that fundraiser.

So is Romney an operative for the Democratic party? Because if that was scripted, it was clearly designed to destroy the GOP's chances.

You ever get that spray-on tan stuff in your eye? Sh*t burns, man.
=Smidge=

Lol... Never had to use it. I'm half Portuguese. 5 minutes in the sun and I look like this:

I hate you so hard.

I'm 1/4 Pork n Cheese, as my niece used to say when she was little, and all the tan got obliterated by all English and German genes. I'm so white I'm blue. Of course, that same niece who is only 1/8 Port and also has a red headed mom also tans in 5 minutes.

/I got Nana's shortness, though, so yaaaay!
//seriously, all of my family is over 6' except me and Nana, and Nana's dead.

Without Fail: Obama personally thanks his campaign staff (without a teleprompter).
Romney cuts their credit cards before they leave.

Congrats America! We made the right choice.


And we're done here.
