        Of course this LaLo style attack post has no substance

        Another I-hate-obama teabagger post brought to you by the same friendly sponsors of the S&P US Credit Downgrade.

          Clueless as usual, as I am an independent that voted for Obama and can see through his smoke screen, unlike you.

          Funny you laugh at other picture jokes when they attack the right, but when other pictuers show Obama for who he is, you do not think its funny, you go on the attack. We see through you

            As far as substance, it would take 20 pages to show all of Obamas failure.

            You need new talking points

              Semi-American View,

              I understand your frustration. Things are bad. BUT EVERY NATIONAL POLE TAKEN identifies the government as a whole to blame, and most blame self-righteous-one-sided-bias anti-Obama AT ALL COST THINKERS like yourself (Tea-baggers) for this recent debacle that resulted in America's credit downgrade. I apologize if you think you are more informed than I perceive you to be Semi, but anyone who would make a statement like "As far as substance, it would take 20 pages to show all of Obamas failure." *****AND COMPLETELY DISREGARD INFORMATION LIKE THIS**** .... http://whatthefuckhasobamadonesofar.com/   That person has to have ulterior motives.

                Simon,

                First I am not frustrated, nor am I a tea bagger.I actualy am an independent Perhaps you should read all my hubs and you will see I point out the wrongs of poicies and more in Washington. But I also offer solutions and not talking points like many do here. I will be starting a PAC that will be bringing ideas not rhetoric to Washington. I am already pushing for a different healthcare program that is way better tha Obamacare, gets everyone insurance, not tax increases, no medicare increases, in fact it will lower Medicares burden.

                As for blame, there is plenty to go around. I was not here when Bush was President, otherwise you would have seen that I wrote about his mistakes too. I am writing a new hub critisizing the group of republican candidates and their performance last night in Iowa(yes it was a performance, no policies discussed, just rhetoric) If I wanted entertainment I could have wathched a movie or a baseball game. I want to hear solutions. I ask no more or less from the current President and Congress.

                I am sorry if you do not agree that Obamas' Presidentcy has been a failure, bit no one more than me. I take my voting very seriously, and I voted for him. It has been a true disappointment that I like amny otheres were fooled. He has lived up to one campaign promise, and that was on change. He did change things, but for the worst not better. Having said that, let me also say I believe if McCain would have won, it would be worse than it is now.

    The seeds for this disaster were sown a long time ago. I'm sure that the donors to both parties don't want anything fixed.If enough Americans would get their face out of their smart phones long enough we could fix it.

    Another, better-informed critical view from Paul Krugman:

    For more than a year and a half — ever since President Obama chose to make deficits, not jobs, the central focus of the 2010 State of the Union address — we’ve had a public conversation that has been dominated by budget concerns, while almost ignoring unemployment. The supposedly urgent need to reduce deficits has so dominated the discourse that on Monday, in the midst of a market panic, Mr. Obama devoted most of his remarks to the deficit rather than to the clear and present danger of renewed recession.
