We are knee deep in ObamaDepression. Obamanomics is a failure.

Sorry... didn’t see your post... great minds and all of that!
It has worked so far.
Some day the media is going to have to ‘pay the piper’ for letting (and enabling) this clown in the White House get away with all he’s done to employment in this country.
They got around “soup lines” lines with EBT cards.
You used more syllables than I did. So it is different. But I do the same thing all the time.
