Years This Country Has Gone Through In My Lifetime' By Terence P. Jeffrey February 24, 2012

(CNSNews.com) - President Barack Obama told a group of contributors at a campaign fundraiser in Florida on Thursday that his term so far has been "three of the toughest years this country has gone through in my lifetime."

"We've gone through three of the toughest years this country has gone through in my lifetime," Obama said, according to the White House transcript of his remarks.

"And there are a lot of people who are still hurting all across the country--a lot of people here in Florida, a lot of people everywhere," said Obama. "There are still folks whose homes are underwater because the housing market collapsed. There are people who are still struggling because they can't find a job. There are folks who are just barely able to make ends meet. And obviously those of us who are here, we've been incredibly blessed.

That filthy SOB. I guess all those vacations just wore him out.

And trying to figure out how to blame everyone else for his stupid decisions.

No, he is fully aware that his supporters haven’t a clue about History so he can get away with making inane comments like that...

As a certifiable, narcissist, Obama's grandiose dream is his creation of an Empire of Dependency.

And, of course, to send us the bill for it, until there are no taxpayers left.

well... Mine where.. and still are.

I was adopted. I can only guess it’s in my genes or a full on rebellion of my parents.

I'm originally from New York. A majority of my family were Democrats simply because...

The one ray of hope was that Party Affiliation didn't necessarily mean supporting the Democrat Candidate over the Republican Candidate.

the Zero bumper sticker is already on their car (A full size sedan.. go figure)..

I love them because they are my parents.. I don’t talk politics with them. My sister is a lost cause to. 35 and still living at home.

she can’t find a “good” job and move out but she can jet off to where ever when ever she wants.

Just ask them one question while you are pointing at the Bumper Sticker on their car, WHY?

The answer will either amuse you or infuriate you.

Republicans Hope people are smart while Democrats Know people are stupid.

Just let them know that Obama laughs at them, just like Andy Griffith's character Lonesome Rhodes in the Movie “A Face In the Crowd”.

Refer to my Tagline for clarification.

I wonder if he feels that way when he is dining with celebs and I also wonder if his wife feels this way when she is hoisting her fat rear end down ski slopes. Obama is a liar
he says what ever he feels will make people feel sorry for him and that he is trying sooooooooooo hard. I can not stand him and at this point I feel the same way about anyone who supports or voted for this flim flam man.

I am leaning toward Islam. And it is funny that Joseph Smith considered himself the second Mohammed (strange too that Mormonism has such close parallels to Islam).

I had better clarify that comment lest some reader draw the wrong conclusion.

"I am leaning toward Islam as the source of the AntiChrist."

“we’ve all got cousins, UNCLES, family members who are still struggling and are a reminder that we have a lot more work to do.””

My CD's suck and have for ten years now. I've always lived my life out of debt (not even a mortgage - paid cash). The government has always worked against me.

How are your parents CD's doing?

Funny how Obama fails to mention that he has completely ignored (as in failed to help) his homeless half-brother in Kenya who lives on less than a dollar a day.

Liberals never actually help anyone. They just arrange it so that productive people must help.

Oh! Woe is him!

It may be the slowest recovery in his lifetime--credit to his failure--but it is most certainly not the three toughest years this country's been through in his lifetime.

Unfortunately, many under 35 could believe him as three year periods they'd remember have been relatively good, even when things were bad.

Tougher years have come and gone ...

But the President was in Indonesia or Pakistan for most of them ...

Thanks for your clarification- it did read kinda weird.. but we knew what you meant.

I never thought much at all about islam as a force of consequence in the endtimes, being backward camel-humpers and whatnot but as things devolve in Christendom and wealth accumulates in nations surrounding the Holy Land one ought to reconnoiter..

I was lost in the FR meltdown earlier this week but carry on and power/wisdom to you FRiend!

Progressives are stupid.

Not stupid. Irresponsible. And they lie...a lot.

Obama: “ - - - But one of the great things about America and one of the great things about those who are in professional sports is we’ve all got cousins, uncles, family members who are still struggling and are a reminder that we have a lot more work to do.”

What is “one of the great things?” What is he saying?

Are these the nonsensical babblings of a man who has lost his grip on reality?
