He believes that Govt has to spend and spend and to support banks, jobs, companies etc

This is unbelievable

he thinks health care will get us out of this

he wants banks to give loans out when it was that what caused this.

speechless I am

never would I thought I would ever hear a speech which is directing us to a take over into Marxism.

he even laughed at the thought of his liberal socialist spending

the arrogance

now this was at Georgetown , are they complete clowns there or something, clapping clapping for what

that he has no clue what eh is doing .
clapping unemployment going through the roof
clapping that Govt will dictate everything in our life
clapping that the markets, 401k, has gone down while spending and debt has gone up

just after he said he wants to increase spending the Muppet’s in the crowd clapped for crying out loud will these idiots get a grip of themselves and show how to question someone

Well, he was a socialist too. Witness his admin’s spending and the fraudulent bailout of the Wall St. welfare queens.

That being said, the markets tank every time Hussein Soetero opens his mouth.

To: NMEwithin

indeed it is

I remember in the election time I asked many of them why you voting for obama
none really knew all they could say was change, talks well, change that was it

when I brought up points they just look dumbfounded and many had never even heard about them.

Now when I meet any of them I ask them how they think he is doing and they are like robots with the same words as their messiah.

When I ask them about unemployment going through the roof, debt going sky high record highs, spending out of control, markets have lost

they just look dumbfounded again I swear these people do not have a clue what they are doing or thinking

never would I have seen so many dumb voters and many of them are actually college kids who do not have a job, never had a full time job, and they have parents who are rich and come form elitist areas of places like MA, NY etc

indeed if obama said he is clamping down on free speech ,dissenters will be arrested and held

these idiots would still clap

this is indeed scary

do they even teach the constitution in schools anymore??????

No ... nothing is taught that would give an inkling of an American identification.

Will have to compare them on a percentage basis.

The market ain't what it used to be.

You left out the part about the MSM spinning everything W said in order to tank the economy while they spin everything Obammie the Commies says to prop it up.

Do you have any information that can back this up. Pick the S&P on a several occassions throughout W’s time in office when speeches were given. I’m interested in seeing if there is the same consistent trend (not just one time) that we have seen recently.

Yes, they do spin for Obama, but they didn’t have to do anything to tank the economy under W.
