Obama came into power when US was already in big trouble. He was basically given a ticking time bomb, which unfortunately exploded in his hands. Things were bound to get worse for you guys before they get better. You are still the most powerful and rich country in the world.
God wish it were so, so many people are like lemmings, they just follow the Person in front, perhaps some of those who voted did not really know What they were getting into. Well we are all gonna find out real soon and I don't think it will be pretty
I voted for him. He is smart guy who know what he is doing. Not stupid like Sara Palin, Romney. Republicans not working with him at all he still succeeding. Blame brainwashed republicans for all problems.
Ooh, for crying in a bucket, it's over, he is the President, deal with. Coulda woulda shoulda doesn't matter for 4 more years. Geez!!! No body's ever happy, even if it was Romney that won, people will still be crying, suck it up, put your big boy pants on, he can't do any more harm than Bush did.
Its sad to see most people don't even have a clue as to what's coming. This little cliff they are hanging on is just a tiny speed bump. Just wait till the interest rates go through the roof and their food prices double. There is so much headed this way.And when the dollar collapses those same people that voted for Obama will swear they voted for Romney .
I think ask.com must be stuck in a time warp ( I'm gone for 2 months and I see the same people saying the same crap) Anyways, he won. The republican party is in the early stages of its death and this election was a sign of things to come. The GOP has been driven further and further to the right by nut-jobs while the majority of the populace has remained in the middle. 95% of blacks, 67% of latino's, 70% of asian's, 60% of women, 75% under age 35, and 45% of white men voted against the GOP. It is those like you that have driven level-headed, logical republicans like me away from the party, but WORST of all it's because of the rightwing-nuts and the tea-baggers that this nation will become (hopefully briefly) a one party, fascist state. I'm only happy it will be the moderate dems in charge and not the Norquist led neocons.
Well from what I notice, the majority of these unhappy people are misinformed and underachieving individuals. They complain that there are "no high paying jobs" while the reality is that "there are no high paying jobs that they qualify for". They complain that they "can't afford college" meanwhile myself, majority of my co-workers, employees, and colleagues took something out called "a college loan". I was 100k in debt when I graduated and it took me half a decade to pay off. It took strong money management and responsibility, something most of these whiners don't have. It's even easier now under Obama, since graduates only have to pay a certain percentage of their salary instead of a fixed amount regardless of how much they make. Businesses are not "leaving America due to high taxes" but rather " failing businesses are using Obamacare to ditch their employees while they reel in whatever money they can from their failing businesses". Meanwhile Apple gets named the most expensive company in history in a "failing economy" where people can't afford smart phones, tablets, or luxury computers; they're also moving their manufacturing back onto American soil.
It sounds like you are asking about the time that Jeb Bush helped his brother steal the election with the influence of George Senior and his connections in the Supreme Court. No. Unlike George W, Obama actually won the election.
