I like none of the above, because all of those are not positives for the economy.

But it only lasted a few months. After that, it was all Reps until recently. It takes longer than a few months to push things through House and Senate, but that's why he was like an energizer bunny at the beginning. He knew he had to TRY and get things done before they started stonewalling him.

Also agree with Greenmagick.

But it's not just about the enconomy. Running a country is much more than economy.

Economy is on a fixed curve anyhow. Has been since the beginning of economics. You can't change it. One of the first things you learn in Economics 101.

More important is HOW the money is being spent.

Here is a list of campaign promises broken, its half the size of campaign promises kept. Some of them are things he TRIED to do...like work together across the aisle. Honestly, that was one thing I was most annoyed by in the beginning....he kept TRYING to compromise and work together but was being totally stonewalled. I wish he wouldve just said F it.

A couple things from the list that stand out

Repeal DOMA

Close Guantanamo

Expand Anti-Discrimination in the work place to include sexual orientation and gender identity

Increase minimum wage to $9.50

Sign Freedom of Choice Act

and there are more.

The point is, I am not "blindly" supporting Obama. I am fully aware of issues I agree with him on, issues disagree on, and what he has and has not gotten done. But I have been hearing a LOT of "Oh, he didnt get anything done, he broke all his promises" and on and on.....its just simply NOT true at all.

He hasnt been transparent, his main promise to Americans with his Hope and Change agenda.

Im watching "2016 Obama's America" right now, Im just 15 minutes into it and I recommend it.

Just got done with 2016 Obama's America. I havent voted for a main party candidate in over 10 years, Im voting Romney. To me it isnt worth the risk of a Obama second term.

A lot of good back ground on Obama with this documentary.

I'm sure it's a very factual movie. I've heard all sorts of <cough> unbelievable claims from it.

Watching "2016: Obama's America" for a factual and accurate representation of Obama is like watching, well, anything by Michael Moore for a factual anything about any Republican.
