    Obama and the democrat congress reduced the deficit by 8.6% in fiscal year 2010 from 1.4 to 1.3 trillion. Source: Congressional Budget Office (search "cbo doc11936" for proof). Republicans won the house in Nov 2010 and forced their tax cuts for billionaires on America..now the deficit is projected to rise from 1.3 to 1.5 trillion in FY 2011. (Source: cbo doc12039)

    Republican policies: Failed ‘trickle down’ policies, reckless deregulations with no oversight, allowing Wall Street to concoct Ponzi schemes, the unnecessary Iraq War, tax breaks for rich/millionaires, subsidies for oil companies, unpaid prescriptions plans, etc. slowest job growth in over 50 years. Bush left Obama with a shattered economy, a trillion dollar DEFICIT, and two unfunded wars. If you smash a window and wait 2 weeks for someone else to clean it up, that period of time doesn't erase the fact that you smashed it to begin with. . . . . .When President Obama took office the country was losing approx 800,000 jobs per month, and the Obama Administration turned the job deficit into a job SURPLUS adding more jobs each month. SEE chart-of-the-day-jobs-lost-in-the-bush-and-obama-administration-2010-2 . . . The country and economy is better since President Obama was elected, as evidenced by the recent 27 straight months of JOB growth, 4.3 million created. He also rescued U.S auto industry (GM now #1 worldwide in sales, profitability), but Romney/GOP wanted to block this rescue. America is moving forward with successfully out of the ditch, and it would be ‘suicide’ to go back into the ditch by voting for Republicans with their ALREADY PROVEN FAILED POLICIES, which Romney supports along with the Ryan Budget, which is more extreme – Bush/Cheney policies on STEROIDS. Further, he pledged his allegiance to Grover Norquist (NOT to U.S. citizens) by signing Norquist’s pledge, and 17 out of 25 of Romney‘s close advisors‘ are from the Bush/Cheney team – Republicans, Democrats, and Independents, would be masochists/insane to take the U.S down the DISASTROUS Bush/Cheney path AGAIN – Voters should vote these Obstructionists Republicans (with their failed policies) out of office.

    Did he think it was Salem, Massachusetts?
    Read this man's body language. He is uncomfortable unless he has the rich around him.
    What is the now infamous tape of "who let the dogs out" where he is surrounded by a group of black kids. His right arm and hand are jerking. He can't wait to get away and is probably wondering what the heck am I doing here. The man of the people as long as you can afford $30K+ on a horse that is tortured for the gait or build car elevators in your
    mansion. Where are my pool and gated community friends? Those with the private planes who came to visit me in Utah to give me money so I can now screw the whole country.
