  1. Sorry, Dean. I happen to think Obama saved this country. That’s why he will get a second term. I credit him with turning 750,000 a month job losses to 150,000 jobs gained last month. I also credit him with passing healthcare which will finally make conservative leeches purchase their own health insurance rather than mooching off me. (Don’t you just love their pitiful arguement that the big, bad gobmint is making them purchase a product yet have no problem using my healthcare system and expect my insurance to cover them?) And I also want to personally thank him for pushing Congress to get financial regulation moving forward so I’m not so vulnerable to big banks’ failures with my money and our economy. God is helping us. He gave us Obama. It’s you and your kind that nearly destroyed this country. We will never forget that.

  2. hey steven from providence: How come the financial regulation that was passed did not reform fanny may or freddie mac? those 2 barnny frank controlled institutions have had to have millions of federal dollars pumped into them the past few months to keep them afloat. How come unemployment is over 11% here in rhode island? Yes we did get stimulus money to rebuild the infrastructure, new roads and bridges (thankyou to all those union workers who got those jobs) don’t forget the $800 dollar american recovery act signs telling us where the money was spent. Of course there are no jobs to drive to. I would have rather had a tax cut so I will have more money at the end of the week to spend than this healthcare bill. Did you happen to notice how blue cross, united health and last week tuffs asked for and got rate increase approvals. we were told that if this bill was passed rates would go down.

  3. Please explain how Obama saved anything–take the horse blinders off—you do realize the election was last week and the results are directly related to Obama and his abysmal presidency.
    Obama is another Jimmy Carter 1 term ideolog. I suppose you think Nancy Pelosi was good for the country too. And Barney Frank another great american. It’s time you understand it is a country of the many not that of a disjointed few.
