Obama, the liberals in Congress and every left wing nut on here contiues to blame ANYONE other than Obama. It is hysterical to read their excuses. Obama will go down in history as number 1 in two categories - The first black president and THE WORST president we have ever had. Lucky for him, he has Hillary just waiting to run. That is the only thing that can make him look better. If Hillary wins, Obama will surely lose the title as Worst and move to second. Dont worry Jimmy Carter, you no longer are the worst.

You can't expect an economy to thrive when the blockhead dominant government policies all muzzle Wall Street and condem anyone who possesses any kind of wealth. Even the little guy suffers. This is 6 years of stupid and repressive economic policies coming back to roost right where it belongs...on Obama's front porch.

Pat Moynihan coined the phrase "defining deviancy down", and we have seen how prescient he was in assessing the ongoing deteriorating structure of our society. This administration has gone one step further by "defining the economy down". Whereas in past years, current performance would have been considered quite poor, This administration considers it "encouraging". I therefore choose to define this administration as delusional.

Even after throwing BILLIONS out the window and leaving our grandchildren to pay the tab, quantitative easing and jobless benefits for years and the lowest number of employed in decades how could it not be booming? NO ONE thinks that this wasteful spree has helped anything but Obama benefactors. If you put him in office you got repaid for your investment!

Obama is just a sad excuse of being a human being. Out to make a legacy for himself with Obama care on everyones expense.

Wow, manufacturing didn’t increase the month after Christmas – who could have predicted that. Yet the market is at an all-time high, I wonder why? Must be all the work the congress is doing that offsets that bad old President. When the market is down it’s the President’s fault, when the market is at an all-time high we look at other indicators. Better stop focusing on the Obama and start to focus on trying to slap some lipstick on some of the pigs you’re thinking of running for president.

BEREAL: Is that your defense of this president? How about defending this: Lowest Labor participation in 30 years, median income falling, deficit and debt (that thing he called unpatriotic at one time) at all time highs, more people on foodstamps, 99 weeks of unemployment, Benghazi, AP, NSA, IRS, James Rosen and OBAMACARE. Tell me you have something better than that last lame response. Defend any or all of the above (If you can)

Washington has allowed Obama to become an Imperialist President, this did not happen in a vacuum. He is a liar and not to be trusted to act on behalf of anyone but himself and the Statist control of everything especially Health CARE, not just who pays for it. This is why the economy is struggling, there is no other reason but his policies. Business' don't trust him because he changes Laws with impunity. Once him and the rest of the unsavory bunch of Dem and Rep progressives are thrown out of Washington, we can get back to being America.

Where exactly is the fairness in this law? Why is it good to delay the employer mandate yet stick it to the individuals? I believe that the entire law should be delayed at LEAST, fully repealed at BEST! The Obama administration announced Monday it would give medium-sized employers an extra year, until 2016, before they must offer health insurance to their full-time workers.

Firms with at least 100 employees will have to start offering this coverage in 2015.

Too bad the Republicans don't have a "Putin" to straighten out this country. Ex-KGB, as Bush Sr. was ex-CIA, and anti monority, anti human rights, anti women's rights, and favors the Gulag for all gays. Throw in the fact that he deals arms to his allies, favors military might, and frowns upon pajama pants stroller pushings baby mamas and their bare chested pit-bull owning boyfriends. The only food stamp in Russia is a size 10 to the dupa and a club to the head. Come to think of it, he might be a little too liberal to get past the Tea Party.

Look how we change the subject when we don't have a good comeback. Typical Nazi, I mean Tea Party tactics. Get out your Sara Palin bumper stickers and see if they stick in 2016. Please run Ted Cruz, I want to see how you make that wacko into a presidential candidate. I'm afraid you'll need more than lipstick for that one. You work so hard on discrediting this president because you got nothing. Just like your record in the House.

So Bereal, where is the real progress? What do you feel is the working programs that DEMOCRATS have put forward? I can not see anything that has been done in the past 5 years that has done anything but add to out nations debt. There are fewer jobs, there is no victory in any of the wars that we have been fighting and the nation is more divided now than it has been in our lifetimes. Obama failures are like rain drops... we got very wet but it all ran off without any benefit to the crops! He has had more unintended consequences than any president in history and frankly we would have been better off if the government was closed for the past 5 years. GetREAL and open your eyes. Obama is the loser in charge and has taken us down with his plans!

Hill, you may be onto something there. The problem is this country has become place where the only people it is OK to discriminate against, call all sorts of names is a white male over 50. We have to be accepting of "alternative lifestyles" no matter how bizarre. We can only offend Christians and their values. Hooray for ME and up yours. "frowns upon pajama pants stroller pushing baby mamas and their bare chested pit-bull owning boyfriends" -- so we should encourage this????? -- "favors the Gulag for all gays" -- good idea, I'm getting tired of having this crap shoved in my face at every turn.

Today Obama re-wrote Obamacare without using congress. A president is only supposed to sign into law bills passed by congress not write and sign them into anything! HYPOCRITE!!

"The biggest problems that we're facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all. And that's what I intend to reverse when I'm president of the United States." Sen. Barack Obama, March 31, 2008

"While the GOP lawmakers said that commanders could have pushed harder to position forces to respond to threats in North Africa in general and Libya in particular, they concluded that no U.S. military assets could have arrived in Benghazi in time to affect the outcome of the attack, according to committee staff members who briefed reporters on the report." Three separate committees and a great big nothing burger. There is no "there" there. Manufactured crises, every one. The deficit is now lower than when Obama entered office. Unemployment is down from 11% and people have health care. What a horrible man.

MODERATION: Your post shows just how Obama and the liberals can lead the people into believing them. Your post is so inaccurate that there isn't enough space to refute it. And I wouldn't waste my time trying to convince someone that is so infatuated with the left. Good Luck to you and the party of income equality (Re-distribute MY money to the pajama pants gang), the largest debt (unpatriotic just 6 years ago), the imperialistic president (Another change to the Obama Care LAW yesterday), and the worst long term economy in history. Your Party owns it all no matter how much you try to deflect and ignore it.

Today's debt: 17,258,824,690,537.53 the total US debt on 12/31/2008 just days before Obama took office: 10,699,804,864,612.13 From the debt to the penny website (treasury direct).

You can type all you like about how the deficit is smaller, numbers do not lie, unlike the current president. And you may be right, Benghazi may have happened no matter who was in office, the difference is what was said, what was done and what could have been done that makes this administration guilty of irresponsibility like no other in history.

And by the way, how’s that “war for women” going for you? Enlighten us with how the quality of life will improve for women with the right wing wacko end game on that topic.

Obama can't blame his predecessor? What a stupid statement. The economy tanked so bad that many thought it would be an all out depression, instead of the worst recession of all time. This clown editor needs to shut up. He's making the Leader Herald look like a print version of Fox News.

really ADKman???? so where is the economy flourishing?? - I mean other than the penthouses on Wall Street?? Real income is below 1979 levels for most people.

A print edition of FOX news doesn't sound like a bad idea.
