How bad could a second term be really?

If I knew you back in 2004, I would have asked you the same question.

Vote for Romney and there'll be plenty of people to serve you up some fries.

The U.S. added jobs every month 2004-2007. But that doesn't fit your slant on the "good old Bush days", so it's off your chart. Statistics lie and liars statiss, I guess. Bush II got tossed out like a cheating husband because 2008's economy sucked the big one. Once again, "it's the economy, stupid." Guessing 2012 will be the samo-samo. Obama could survive or not, too early to say with accuracy.

Obama will survive thanks to his partners in the media and all of the new victims he's added to the doll.

Or you know, maybe he didn't run because of term limits?

Fair enough, it was a skewed chart, but he still ended up with a net jobs loss. Not exactly rosey.

One thing the chart does show is that we went from complete shit with jobs numbers to job growth under Obama. I think Obama could eradicate unemployment and Ned would still say the economy sucks under Obama.

Despite record obliterating use of the filibuster and general dickheaded obstruction from the GOP. Like we've never, ever seen before. Obama needs to hang the number of filibusters on their heads.

Mr. Fisti, just wondering, which do you consider the more "dickheaded obstuction" like. Fleeing the state to avoid a vote by the Democrats or filibustering under the rules of order by the Republicans?

The Republican abuse of the filibuster in a landslide. The Democrats in WI were facing some pretty ground breaking back breaking legislation that was going to be crammed down everyone throats without so much as a debate. The Republicans in Congress have filibustered any and everything, held up every appointment and have had a stated goal of blocking any recovery in this country until they control the White House. It's apples and assholes. What a stupid question.
