It`s not Obamas fault the American political system is so flawed.

For him to get anything done he has to try and push poo through a Republican controller house of representatives. I`m not even American and I know that

"You got to feel sorry for Obama. He was handed a sinking ship, and given the task of convincing everybody it`s still floating. All while the people who crashed it in the first place, are blaming him for it not floating."

Why feel sorry? He knew the job was dangerous with fraught when he ran for President. If you don`t want to lead get out of the way.

There used to be,in America,a quaint custom for the worst of the worst criminals:Shoot on sight.
Politicians are the worst we have anymore.

Saying he made it worse means it`s worse. He couldn`t have said he made it worse but it`s really better. He was saying it is worse and laid the blame on Obama. But being a typical politician he had to lie and say he didn`t say that.

"Unfortunately, Obama will not get reelected."

Depends on who`s running against him. If it`s Palin or Michele B, he doesn`t even need to campaign. Those two ladies are idiots.

(Not because their ladies, mind you. They are idiots who happen to be ladies. Hillary Clinton is not an idiot, and gave Obama a good run for his money back in the day.)

For everyone on here who says the economy sucks, your luxuries such as computers and internet that allow you to post here say otherwise.

no @tekinette, you`re completely right, somehow the whole American political system has turned into a show. Most of the politicians just put on a tap dance to make the people ooo and aaah, but when it comes down to it the only thing they care about the big corporations and the millionaires, not the actual people....it makes me sick

From an outsider point of view, most politicians in the US really seem to give speechs like if they were talking to retards... Always vague, no facts, no clear ideas etc... Just point out that you believe the other guy is doing bad and you`ll do better... (about the economy anyways, not the gay mariage, abortion etc)

The most obvious ones were Bush and the childish stuff like "if you`re not with us you`re with the terrorists" and Palin talking about the economy in general.

I hope I`m wrong but that`s what I usually hear when I listen to some speechs from time to time.

@espenfana- At the same time, he`s done virtually nothing to hold accountable the people who crashed it in the first place. Instead, he integrated them into his economic team.

People hanging on others` every word trying to catch them up doesn`t solve anything, I knew what he meant by it, he`s not all that of a crooked weaseling man like most politicians, and these reporters show that sometimes you have to be one to keep a job.

I`m not a sympathizer, just someone with sense.

There is no president that you can ever vote for that`ll make everything magically better.

Pay your taxes, stop whining about them, and we`ll all be fine.

All you need to do is to examine yesterday`s 12 Week Jobs Report (The measure of equalibrium in the job market). The U.S. needs to create 2 million jobs, every month over the next 10 years just to get back to 2007 employment level. That doesn`t make for a nice little sound byte. I am not assigning blame, but you are kidding yourselves if you don`t think that the U.S. economy is f*cked.

The reporter thinks the economy is improving? Sheesh yet the treasury says we are one month from defaulting.

Second- this dumb ass reporter doesn`t understand that unemployment is higher. This is in large part statistics on how many are filing for unemployment. Most of the unemployed are no longer filing because they are out of extensions. She need to quit smoking crack.

All you basically have to do is get out of your little world and observe. Businesses closing or laying off. Lack of patrons in establishments spending money. Lack of tax revenue from such due to families cutting back. Forcing states to cut back in personnel and services. It`s an obvious trickle down effect due to unemployment. Some of you IABer`s are in self denial of reality. Yes the king has new clothes! Just look at Greece as a fore-runner of things to come.

Japan once promised that the people will have a job for life. Yeah right! Well that was a load of crap.

Bush: 5% -> 8% in his last year, with all his economic policies having 7 years already in place.

Obama: 8% -> 10% in the first, then down to 9%.

At the end of Bush you were losing 1.4 million jobs per month. At the end of Obama`s first year, you were gaining 200K per month.

That demonstrates the health of the economy and whether it is worse or better. The final unemployment figure demonstrates a collective of past decisions.

(You`re still gaining jobs but unemployment is steady due to more people coming into working age, leaving college, etc).

This is the equivalent of driving off a cliff, changing drivers mid fall, and blaming the new driver for the last 20 feet.

Unemployment statistics only include those on unemployment, they do not include people on welfare or the homeless, so real unemployment is always much higher at least 15%

Obama will get re-elected.

here is why:

1. The economy has improved somewhat...not greatly but enough to keep people from hating Obama.

2. The republicans messed up good with Bush and his group and people are not quick to forget what happened under their total leadership in all three branches of gov.

**3. Most importantly, the republicans have NO ONE worth voting for, or even mentioning for that matter. All they have are two truly stupid female candidates, one truly stupid black candidate, and a host of "been there and failed before" white candidates.

Unemployment was 7.6% when Obama took office; it`s just over 9% now. He was technically right the first time. The stock market has rebounded but the jobs aren`t coming back. Even though the recession is technically over, it`s not for people with no jobs. If nothing improves, Obama won`t get re-elected.

Failed America? lol. This president has made a historic healthcare bill pass which HOPEFULLY should bring the US into the 21st Century regarding hospital treatment and the such, and under him Bin Laden was found and killed.

Also it doesn`t do any harm that he seems like a genuinely nice (and pretty damn cool) guy.

Honestly the only way to fix America is to pay politicians less. Being a Senator was never meant to be a career. If you`re trying to make a career out of being a politician then you`re going to do what will make you get votes, not what is right. Unfortunately politicians decide their own pay, and can vote to increase their own salary. Who wouldn`t abuse that?

I gonna have to go ahead and agree with Obamney .If you think a double dip recessions is better because we are a slight improvements then were were 2 and a half years ago. then by all means support the status quo and make it worse. if you think we can do worlds better than Google `Ron Paul`.....2012!

If the economy recovers, that is because it has the ability to recover itself and not because of the President. But if it becomes worse, it must be because of the President!!!11!one!!!

translation: Hey, let`s blame bad things on people we don`t like and bend whatever convenient facts we have to further our propaganda!

rockwell, im not saying there isnt anybody who could have done better, but he hasnt done a completely horrible job. very few people could have just brought it from the garbage he received it in and brought it up at all, let alone in a quick painless way. nobody could have turned it around "way" quicker.

A politician lied in a campaign speach.

That`s right up there with "middle aged man cheats on wife" for newsworthyness.

shocked! SHOCKED! ..... "shocked" is the only word I can think of to describe how shocked I am!

@weakmonster read what Rick_S wrote. That is what I was saying. Obama made it worse before it got better. A different president would have gotten things turned around way quicker.

He didn`t say things are worse, he said Obama made it worse. He did, but it`s rebounding now. It`s better now than it was when Obama took office, but it wasn`t a straight line to get here.

That`s American politics. Half truths and implied insults to get the vote.

The economy was in recession - Barrack made it worse. Sorry Rockwell, but youre the stupid one here. Implying Barrack made it worse is saying the exact same thing as saying economy is worse. Then at 33 seconds, as supersai pointed out, he says the economy isnt worse. That`s a direct contradiction.

What he said right there is that the economy was in recession, and Barack made it worse. That could mean anything. He made is worse than if someone else had been in office. This is not a flip flop but another example of stupid people trying to understand what smart people are saying. Sorry IAB, stupid people.

I don`t get it.. the economy *is* still sh|t.

Word play is just that... word play.

The fact remains that our job market sucks, our housing industry sucks, and things don`t seem to be getting any better. Wages are going down, prices are going up.
