    President Obama gets no respect for averting another Great Depression:

    For saving 3.3 million jobs with stimulus spending 
For salvaging GM and Chrysler from the junkyard

    Some deeds are even going unremembered…

    NY Times/CBS News poll in September:

    Only 8 percent (!) of Americans know that he gave 95 percent of American taxpayers a tax cut.

    (The above from the Sunday NY Times column by Frank Rich.)


    America has the fifth lowest taxes of any developed nation:

    ^Thanks for the info

    While we are on the subject of Obama, he is not a Muslim. He wasn’t born in Kenya he is a moderate, not a socialist. He has done an excellent job.

    The reason most taxpayers don’t know about the cut is because he cut the payroll deductions instead of paying to print up big flashy checks and for the postage to mail them out with letters telling them to worship the GOP.

    That was meant for the “It’s All Obama’s Fault ” crowd.

    Aw c’mon. You have seen snopes after snopes saying Obama is not a Muslim, was born in Hawaii, has actually cut taxes.

    That tea party Kool-Aid must be powerful stuff.

    when a significant chunk of the public doesn’t even know they got a tax cut under Obama, and instead believes their taxes were raised, something is very, very wrong in the good old US of A. Willful ignorance or stupidity, both are very troubling.

    This is simply untrue. All of the bankers, unions, construction and unemployed are happy with their government paychecks. The angry voters are the middleclass taxpayers picking up the tab for all this spending and they are the ones left trapped in the crashing airplane. As long as there people that believe money grows on trees there will be people happy to spend the cash.

    Because Obamacare never passed, Howie.

    Instead we got a watered-down kowtow to the Republicans (who still didn’t vote for it) and the insurance industry that was missing some of Obamacare’s most important elements, like the public option.

    It makes not a whit of difference how many facts “conservatives” are given, they abstain.

    Obama is a ‘Stealth’ republican! Every single thing the man has done so far of any significance has benefited the wealthy and WallSt. HealthCare was WRITTEN by Big Pharma and Health insurers…it goes on and on and on.

    The glaring fact that so many in this country believe and vote for the very people stealing from them is proof enough that we need universal MENTAL health care.
