Regardless of if you are for or against Obama honestly how has your life changed in the last four years because of Obama? I still work, have my retirement fund, kids still go to school, still pay taxes. Honestly I'm no better or worse off than I was four years ago.

If you haven't figured that out by now, go ahead and vote for Obama. Don't even bother paying attention to what is going on economically, fiscally, socially, etc. It is obvious you don't anyway.

So, lets just cut off the conversation now as there is no hope for anyone that has not figured that out by now.

You can get all the bumper stickers you need right here. I havent seen one yet in my area but by all means get enough for the rest of your friends and family members.

If you're no better or worse...

then you're worse. If you're not making more money, after adjusting for inflation, you're career's likely not progressing as is should. Likewise, if you're retirement fund isn't bigger, after adjusting for inflation, you're losing ground.

With unemployment above 8%, lackluster wage growth for many, and retirement funds that have yet to recover the severe losses of 2008 - 2009, let alone keep up with inflation, many in our country aren't even treading water, as you seemingly are.

You are using selective reasoning.

The unemployment rate is high because of the recession while the Bush Administration was in office. We are slowly working our way out of it and the job numbers proves it. Obama is not responsible for where the numbers dropped to, but his administration get credit for the steady rise in those numbers. Wage growth coming our of a recession is always slow. The stock market is almost to its high and my IRA is back above where it was when the crash happened. I guess I know how to invest better than you do, eh?. Are there still a lot of people out of a job? Yes, so there is still a lot to do, but misrepresenting the facts just shows the desperation some have in this politically charged environment.

Selective reasoning vs. wild-eyed crazy guesses?

I'll take the former, while you go with the latter.

First, you have no idea how my IRA has done. Second, if the stock market is "almost (back) to its high", then it has taken three years (it bottomed in March of 2009) to get back to break-even. And that's before inflation. After inflation, it's still down considerably. Third, the Obama administration promised, with their "stimulus" program, that unemployment wouldn't get above 8%. It peaked at 10.1%, and has remained above 8% for over 30 months. Lastly, the greater the recession, the greater the recovery coming out of the recession. This recovery has been weaker than most. Keynesian economics failed mightily. The blue lines shown below are based on Obama administration estimates:

That is exactly what They want you to believe. Turn the TV off and do your research. The mindless media delivery system that you sit in front of is not the truth.
