Brick-House: #9 When Obama was elected, the homeownership rate in the United States was 67.5 percent. Today, it is 65.0 percent. That is the lowest that it has been in 18 years.


That one is totally W.  Remember the housing crash?  You know why that happened? Remember "Every American should own a home"? Let's deregulate the banks*, and give loans to people that probably shouldn't have them?  How about all the collateral damage from the total collapse of the housing market, good people playing by the rules paying for mortgages on the value of what there home WAS worth, walking away because the mortgage was tens of thousands more than the current value of the home itself.  Fark you, Obama's fault.  Idiot.

*yea, Clinton too, Even St. Reagan... W's straw / camel's back and all that

Brick-House: and as for the GOP opposing breathing if the President came out in favor of respiration. Perhaps that says more about BOB's lack of leadership that anything else. Sorry, but BOB's blindness to everything except his socialists agenda is what is keeping this economy in the toilet. Speaking of which...


I should know better than to ask this of a guy that thinks the current President is a Marxist, so lets just consider this a rhetorical question.
Could you give a few examples of the socialists agenda of which you speak?  Keeping in mind that actual Socialism is about two jumps to the left of what we generally do in Canada, and that even your Democrats are typically to our right.

Not to muddy the waters with facts, but here are 33 facts why BOB is the worst prez ever...

#1
When Barack Obama entered the White House, 60.6 percent of working age Americans had a job. Today, only 58.7 percent of working age Americans have a job.

#2 Since Obama has been president, seven out of every eight jobs that have been "created" in the U.S. economy have been part-time jobs.

#3 The number of full-time workers in the United States is still nearly 6 million below the old record that was set back in 2007.

#4 It is hard to believe, but an astounding 53 percent of all American workers now make less than $30,000 a year.

#5 40 percent of all workers in the United States actually make less than what a full-time minimum wage worker made back in 1968.

#6 When the Obama era began, the average duration of unemployment in this country was 19.8 weeks. Today, it is 36.6 weeks.

#7 During the first four years of Obama, the number of Americans "not in the labor force" soared by an astounding 8,332,000. That far exceeds any previous four year total.

#8 According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the middle class is taking home a smaller share of the overall income pie than has ever been recorded before.

#9 When Obama was elected, the homeownership rate in the United States was 67.5 percent. Today, it is 65.0 percent. That is the lowest that it has been in 18 years.

#10 When Obama entered the White House, the mortgage delinquency rate was 7.85 percent. Today, it is 9.72 percent.

#11 In 2008, the U.S. trade deficit with China was 268 billion dollars. Last year, it was 315 billion dollars.

#12 When Obama first became president, 12.5 million Americans had manufacturing jobs. Today, only 11.9 million Americans have manufacturing jobs.

#13 Median household income in America has fallen for four consecutive years. Overall, it has declined by over $4000 during that time span.

#14 The poverty rate has shot up to16.1 percent. That is actually higher than when the War on Poverty began in 1965.

#15 During Obama's first term, the number of Americans on food stamps increased by an average of about 11,000 per day.

#16 When Barack Obama entered the White House, there were about 32 million Americans on food stamps. Today, there are more than 47 million Americans on food stamps.

#17 At this point, more than a million public school students in the United States are homeless. This is the first time that has ever happened in our history. That number has risen by 57 percent since the 2006-2007 school year.

#18 When Barack Obama took office, the average price of a gallon of regular gasoline was $1.85. Today, it is $3.53.

#19 Electricity bills in the United States have risen faster than the overall rate of inflation for five years in a row.

#20 Health insurance costs have risen by 29 percent since Barack Obama became president, and Obamacare is going to make things far worse.

#21 The United States has fallen in the global economic competitiveness rankings compiled by the World Economic Forum for four years in a row.

#22 According to economist Tim Kane, the following is how the number of startup jobs per 1000 Americans breaks down by presidential administration...

Bush Sr.: 11.3

Clinton: 11.2

Bush Jr.: 10.8

Obama: 7.8

#23 In 2008, that total amount of student loan debt in this country was 440 billion dollars. At this point, it has shot up to about a trillion dollars.

#24 According to one recent survey, 76 percent of all Americans are living paycheck to paycheck.

#25 During Obama's first term, the number of Americans collecting federal disability insurance rose by more than 18 percent.

#26 The total amount of money that the federal government gives directly to the American people has grown by 32 percent since Barack Obama became president.

#27 According to the Survey of Income and Program Participation conducted by the U.S. Census, well over 100 million Americans are enrolled in at least one welfare program run by the federal government.

#28 As I wrote about the other day, American households are now receiving more money directly from the federal government than they are paying to the government in taxes.

#29 Under Barack Obama, the velocity of money (a very important indicator of economic health) has plunged to a post-World War II low.

#30 At the end of 2008, the Federal Reserve held $475.9 billion worth of U.S. Treasury bonds. Today, Fed holdings of U.S. Treasury bonds have skyrocketed past the 2 trillion dollar mark.

#31 When Barack Obama was first elected, the U.S. debt to GDP ratio was under 70 percent. Today, it is up to 101 percent.

#32 During Obama's first term, the federal government accumulated more new debt than it did under the first 42 U.S presidents combined.

#33 When you break it down, the amount of new debt accumulated by the U.S. government during Obama's first term comes to approximately $50,521 for every single household in the United States. Are you able to pay your share?

fark's sake. At least make it semi-plausible if you're going to vomit into MS Paint like that.

Obama pushed for Guantanamo's shutdown and Congress refused to fund it, and you can't use it twice in a single list.
Republicans openly state they wish they could impeach him and investigate the crap out of everything, hoping something will stick.

Put in more than a token effort. If I can explain away your bullet points in a single sentence, you're not trolling hard enough.

of course, they should just the Republicans everything they want.  if they were just reasonable and did everything they were told, there wouldn't be any problems.

No, they should work in good faith with Republicans who want nothing but to help put this Country back on it's feet again.

Obama and the democrats drove this country off a cliff! And now they want the keys back?!

Again and again, you post these things that demonstrate the current failure of the modern GOP obstructionists.

In the 80s, Democrats worked well with the President for the good of the nation.  These days, the GOP would oppose breathing if the President came out in favor of respiration.

BOB had full control of the the house and senate for the first two years and what did we get, the job killer Obamacare.

and as for the GOP opposing breathing if the President came out in favor of respiration. Perhaps that says more about BOB's lack of leadership that anything else. Sorry, but BOB's blindness to everything except his socialists agenda is what is keeping this economy in the toilet.  Speaking of which...


I realize this is pointless, but I believe that moving toward universal healthcare is the single greatest legacy a 20th cen president could make. The opposition in your country is astounding and frankly rather incomprehensible.

What's funny is that his recovery went so well because St. Ronnie massively raised taxes and worked with the Congressional Democrats on getting the economy back in order.  Two things that the GOP refuse to do.

If you tell the Tea Baggers that it's in the Constitution that a foreign President cannot be impeached, they'll probably believe you.
