I just love it. We're climbing out of the worst recession since the Great Depression, a recession that happened at the end of 8 years of Republican administration, and the Republicans insist that Obama is doing a bad job because it's not resolved yet.

I am one of many, who are not going with the flow this time. I just hope to point out facts for my children’s sake. I refuse to chant chant chant....4 more 4 more 4 more of the same.

God Bless America, and the many families of those directly, and indirectly affected by the events on 9-11-01.

Were you better off before or after Obama became the president?Tell the truth! I'm not referring to the nation's economy. I'm referring to your personal household.

Are you better off now than you were when Obama assumed office in January of 2009?This weekend I watched the news shows and not one Obama surrogate gave a straight answer. So now I ask you since the past 4 years...
