Skip to comments.Majority of Americans Are Upbeat About the Next Four Years [54% vs 65% after '08 election]
Posted on 11/16/2012 6:52:44 PM PST by SoFloFreeper
A majority of Americans believe the country will be better off four years from now, while 41% say it will be worse. But this level of optimism is down considerably from four years ago, following President Barack Obama's first election victory, when 65% said the country would be better off in four years, and prior to his first inauguration, when 72% said the same.

In 2008 65% of the people thought things would be better because the Food Stamp President would be leaving office in 4 years. In 2012 54% of the people think things will be better because the Food Stamp President will be leaving office, but he will have screwed up the economy so bad that 11% have given up hope.
Delusional imbeciles is more like it.
A majority of Americans are complete morons, cowards, and lazy scum.
If your tag is the real you, I feel sorry for you and your family....
EXACTLY! I sent an educated (former, now, after this week) 30 year friend an article with a bit of a snide comment on my part....she flipped out..saying that was MY Reality.....and she didn’t even vote for the “O”....she just doesn’t want to see or even think about what’s coming. I’m toxic and a ranter to her, just because I send INFORMATION.
President reagan must be spinning in his grave...Along with the Founding Fathers...
We are officially 10-years into the "thousand years"...

Who even dreams up this cr@p?
Spiritual blindness is difficult to fathom when your eyes see, and your ears hear.
We are like crazy men in dressed in skins of wild beasts imploring them to hear the Truth.
It will get worse, I fear. I had hoped for a reprieve.
That only means to me we must redouble our efforts. Win, lose or draw in this world matters not.
They never learn.
LOL !!!!! Morons!!!!
It ain't gonna be long now...
I’ve been compiling a count of people laid off since the election it just broke 90,000.
That’s just the ones broadly announced.
90,000 in 10 days.
Yeah. Things are looking soooooo much better.
There is no shortage of useful idiots!
Isn't EVERYTHING Obama touches "unexpectedly" worse?
Except for people who know what this POS really is.
Then things are "expectedly" worse.
Unless Obama pursues some other course, why WOULD the economy get better? The same failed ideas that got us here will suddenly start working?
People believe the continuing Obama campaign, which has not ceased since 2007.
A reality check will happen soon, and these dreamers will awaken, and be very, very angry, when their fridges are no longer full.
Dope springs eternal.
The poor, dumb, people who think they will be better off are going to be the ones hurt the most. They chose what they wanted to trickle down on them, and it is going to get deep.
Yes. December’s job numbers data collection stops on Nov. 13.
By that time I expect my list will clear 100,000, and I’m not even looking at anything between Oct 13 and Nov 6. Nor do I see any of the small company layoffs.
I’d guess that for every WARN act reporting threshold layoff there’s another laid off coffee shop waitress, Mom’n’Pop store clerk or small company gofer.
Say 300,000 newly unemployed reported 3 weeks before Christmas?
