Or you may get a wrecker and pull your head out of your rump long enough to see the truth. Obama is in his second term and America just keeps going down the shi--er. Remember Bush's #s now are as good or better than Obummers that tells the real story.

Instead of losing over 500,000 jobs a month we now have job growth. Instead of a recession with negative GDP we have a recovering economy. Now if Republicans would do what the president has asked Congress to do repeatedly to rebuild crumbling infrastrcuture in United States lots more jobs would be created. Remember the jobs plan he sent 2 years ago Moody's Economics found would add 2 million jobs. We know the stimulus plan worked. We have independent economists and CBO that found it saved and created millions of jobs. Helping domestic automakers saved over a million jobs auto industry experts found. The rules for food stamp eligibility were relaxed under Bush making many more eligible. A lot of increased poverty is a direct result of economic crisis the president inherited coupled with other things like a minimum wage that hasn't risen with inflation and has purchasing power from 2 decades ago. So the Republican answer isn't to help those in poverty. It has been to support slashing food stamps and other social programs whose spending always goes up in times of economic distress. You do know poverty increased quite a bit while George W. Bush was president too.
wowser don't like numbers fisher. He is now falling back to blaming Bush. Obama #'s is lower than 30" Coal.
