    Barack is history! Destined to be remembered for his socialist policy failures and for proving Keyesnian economics is the economics of fools! 7 out of 10 independents say he's doing a poor job, even 1/3 of democraps disapprove! The dems are toast in 2012 and soon we'll have our country back!

      Maybe so, but the Republican buffoons who are running against him are trying to blow another housing bubble. I don't think Americans will appreciate that. They are morons, every one. Some are dominionists and kooks.

      So, you DO want to go back to Bush.

      Thanks, Lady, for the link.  Your ability to forecast the outcome of the next presidential election without knowing who will be running is an amazing feat. I envy your skill. However, I noticed there were several stats in that survey you neglected to mention in your post. For example…
      1. 60% of those surveyed approve of President Obama’s handling of terrorism.
      2. About 50% of those surveyed are pleased with his performance dealing with foreign affairs in general and Libya in particular.
      3. 53% replied that they trusted President Obama as the nation's commander-in-chief.

      Your prediction of the 2012 presidential race still 14 months away is premature at best.
      4. The CNN poll numbers released last week indicated the president's overall approval rating is down to 45%.  That’s doesn’t seem too bad considering President Bush’s approval rating was 33% went he left office and it NEVER went over 43% during his entire second term. (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/co … 01345.html)
      5. In a generic ballot survey conducted by Gallup during Aug 4 thru Aug 7, 2011, 45% said they would vote for President Obama and 39% replied they would vote for any Republican candidate running against him. (http://www.thedenverchannel.com/money/2 … etail.html)

      I would be a fool to claim I know the outcome of a presidential race without knowing who the candidates are. Which may prove that one doesn’t have to believe in Keyesnian economics to be a fool. I hope one day we can compare the successes of both Keyesnian and Trickle Down economics.

      Thanks again, Lady Love. Your posts always inspire discussion.

      It ain't necessarily so... I don't blame President Obama for the crisis of our nation. The problem was there before he took office. And after he got in-- it  just seemed to get worse. Like a cancer sore that already existed, it just hadn't taken full bloom yet. So now you say its all his fault! I don't think so. Maybe they will set it up for the next guy to take credit for the good work President Obama is trying to do now. We Shall See!

        Right, he inherited the economy from Bush. So he inherited 9 trillion in debt, a 500 billion dollar deficit, 5.5% unemployment, and a AAA credit rating. Obama told us if it wasn't for his actions everything would be worse! Obviously he deserves credit for what we have now, which is 9.1% unemployment, 1.3 trillion dollar deficits, 17 trillion dollars of debt and a AA credit rating! Good job mr president! Oh, amd Obama.has been making job creation his number one focus for 2 years now and what has he produced, ZERO jobs for August! The best thing Obama can do for this country is resign.

        If at first you don't succeed, try, try, again. It doesn't matter to me who is right or who is wrong, as long as they get it fixed! Man... I'm hurting real bad because of the economy and so are a lot of other people !!!

      These problems have been many years in the making - Obama is a nice skapegoat for the Republicans to blame.  Both parties are guilty.

        Bush, Clinton, Bush, Reagan Nixon, FDR and Just about every other 20th century president followed the same theory.

        Perhaps we should quit spending and tank the world economy. I am for some cuts, and some on the state level, but I am not for massive cuts or people will be out in the streets and blame the ones who did the cutting!

        And, Republicans want to end medicare. Seniors hate these guys.

    That debt has now (in just three years) slid to almost 15 trillion dollars, unemployment has almost doubled to just over 9% and the deficit will set a new record in 2011 at over 1.5 trillion dollars...now that's change we can measure...fundamentally...and progress we can see.  I just have to wonder what the goal is?  WB

    I don't blame Obama. These are really turbulent times and even if McCain won I don't think he would have done any better than Obama. However, I do feel that the Republicans are more resistant to Obama's administration.
