Yes, we are better off than four years ago Am I better off today than I was four years ago? You bet I am. Four years ago we were on the verge of a second Great Depression; the outgoing president who began office with an $80 billion surplus left behind the highest deficit this country had ever known.

I don't know how the republican got us into 2 wars when the dems were running the Senate and the Congress 8 out of the last 12 years. Also Obama had a dem Congress and Senate his 1st two years and never passed a budget, I wonder if it is because of telling Leno that 9th grade math is too difficult for him. I'm glad you are one of the few people that are better under Obama, you must be a union or government employee.

Also GM is alive? think of this. Action Chevrolet, Advantage Chrysler,Denooyer Dodge,Advantage Dodge, Allstar Chevrolet, Salsbury Chevrolet, Fuccillo GMC,Wedekin Pontiac, Scotia Motors, Fucccillo Chevrolet. Those are all of the dealerships in the immediate Capital District that closed and I'm sure I missed a few, because of Obama with 1000s out of work. There were over 2100 dealerships that closed and most were republican owned. There were over 21,000 people out of work due to it. Please don't give me the liar talking points that Osama is dead and GM is alive. The UAW is alive and Osama is dead because of waterboarding under Bush. Period, end of story. As Paul Harvey would say, "now you have the rest of the story".

Joann; Good for you. We don't need to go backwards and start another war with Iran or who knows where.
The far right calls the wars in Iraq and Afganistan a fight against radical Islam fundalmentalism.
Then; they want to preach to the country about their born again religion, treat women as 2nd class citizens, outlaw civil liberties in favor of religious beliefs.
We must convert to those beliefs that the religious right demands. There is no guarantee of separation of church and state in the constitution They say!
Can you spell-- "Hypocrite"!!!!!!
