    ....now there are Obamavilles:

    Looking like Mitt vs. Obamavilles

    "After the sour economy, Obama’s newest problem is the Occupy Wall Street crowd turning ugly. Say what you will about the Tea Party, it never turned up dead bodies, sexual assault, drugs, disruption of local businesses, smelly and unsanitary encampments, fires in the streets and clashes with police. Even liberal cities like Oakland, Calif., and Portland, Ore., have had enough and closed what are now being called Obamavilles."

    I think Obama is done for, and I'm beginning to think Romney's going to be the next prez.

    I'm still voting for Ron Paul in the primary though.

    It is a US custom for the sitting president to get all the blame for the latest mess. This why the Republicans want to crash the economy into an obvious depression that the government can't hide.

    Republicans don't have to crash the economy.

    Obama has already gotten us there.

    It is also US custom for some people to defend a terrible sitting president. A customary defense is to blame the opposition.

    1. The bubble burst under Bush's watch.

    2. Bush ruined the economy by destroying the surplus that was being run and running up huge debts.

    3. The banks send south under Bush.

    4. The public at large knows that the Republicans are and always have been the party of big business.

    5. Big business has little concern for the average person ... just profits and bonuses.

    6. The public knows that the Republicans defend the rich while continuing to stick it to the middle class and the poor.

    7. The Republicans hope to capture votes through fear tactics.

    8. We will see war drums rattle from Republican candidates.

    9. We will see both parties talk tough about China ... but ......

    A bubble that was created by Carter, Clinton, Dodd etal. by forcing banks to lend to bad risks.

    That Obama doubled again and then again.

    See 1 above.

    Aka -- the job creators.

    Like Obama's buddy GE for example.

    You mean the 47% that don't pay income taxes?

    Like the Demcrats do when they say that Republicans want old people to die?

    While Obama continued/expanded those Bush's wars and then started a few more of his own to boot.
