With all the complaining about President Barack Obama, have we forgotten that we now have universal health care? Our unemployment is very low and the stock market is at a record high.

    Thank you Eric
    But don't worry about that stock market when the stocks get too lofty they'll split and get more affordable.

    Mr Taves and Mr Walters fail to understand the magnitude of Bushes destructive ineptness during his disastrous years in office. Its now perpetuated by the loony Tea Party "seditionists". It is opportunistic in their partisan ferver to cover the mistakes of their failed president by now attacking the current president of the opposite party for their presidents major blunders. And the Tea Party continues to advocate Bushes failed policies.

    That's funny Obama has done such a good job fixing Bush's catastrophe of an economy that now it's "out of reach of the regular guy". Maybe if he had trashed the economy like the last President did the Dow would be low enough to encourage participation.

    Very sad... We elected "hope and change" without ever demanding the meaning there-of; That was the media's job, but they fell down didn't they? Obama said that 'hope and change" was all about "fairness"; but did Joe, or anyone on the left, ask Obama what that meant? Of course not! Well here's what fairness means to Barack Obama and his legion of leftist loons: Health care will become less effective and more costly than ever. The Stock Market will become out of reach for the regular guy, while the rich will get richer siphoning-off billions of dollars borrowed from the Chinese. And worst of all, those without jobs will become so discouraged that they stop looking for work. Some of these people will become gang members, and havoc will reign throughout the neighborhoods of Chicago -- and Stockton. Yes, under Obama's leadership the rich get richer, the average become poor, and the poor start killing.

    The United States of America does not have Universal Health Care.

    The current U6 unemployment rate is 12.4%.

    The stock market’s behavior parallels what happened right before the 1929 crash.

    Coy: Your reasons to compliment Barry and his "so called" accomplishments are few, the Stock Market is way over inflated and an adjustment will be forth coming, unemployment is lower, however most are minimum wage jobs. Health care, if you can afford it is not free, someone is paying for it. One thing it seems you left out, on purpose or otherwise is the staggering debt ( $16 Trillion Dollars ) this country is under, costing billions of dollars a day just to pay off the interest on the loan. Now Barry will be in California for a fund raiser which seems to happen on a bi-monthly basis, with his billion aire buddy who Barry calls Sir, due to his contributions to the democratic party. The movie Money Ball could be changed to buddy money, along with a round of golf and a beer. In Gaza and Israel the fighting and killing go on, and Barry s in California for a fund raiser. [sad]
