    Under Obama, despite his promise that passing his stimulus bill would keep unemployment under 8%, the unemployed has risen to almost 10%, the deficit has double during his administration, his has nationalize many large companies and now he has his energy bill that will raise energy costs for all americans by as much as $3000 a year and cost jobs (estimates by the CBO). If I disagree with his policies, the extreme left calls me a paritsan.

  2. OK, you’re a partisan.

    C’mon, Alf. The man’s been in office for 5 months and you expect him to have everything turned around when it took Bush 2 full terms – 8 years – to tear it all apart?

    Sounds partisan to me.
