    How ironic – spending Labor Day in one of the worst cities for unemployment!!!

  • Chase

    worst president ever.

  • obamalies

    I hope that people realize that he is just an empty suit with empty promises.
    It’s great to campaign for “change” but this change must be clearly defined. Look to his cabinet choices. All New World Order scum. Want to know what is destroying the economy? What happened to pulling troops out of an ILLEGAL war and occupation.

    I fear that American’s and the greater world will once again be swept up in his campaign rhetoric.

  • obamalies

    the SHEEPLE’s president.

  • false hope

    The Black Bush(heheh), put in power by corporate America to do little or nothing, ensuring that the next President is Republican, who will complete the destruction of our country.
    Stop being played by the left vs. right BS.

  • O’Bummer

    I agree.
    George Bush’s third term.
    Same policies.
    Liittle change

  • Please!!!

    @Kalisa: He spent it here to try to encourage us and give us hope. Have u ever spent time here? Don’t talk about Detroit with that kind of attitude before you know what it’s really like. I garuntee we have a better sense of community then any other large metropolitan in the us

  • laverdadduele

    So, how’s that hope-change thing going for ya?

  • Lisa

    Bye Bye OBAMA THE MARXIST TWIT in November 2012

  • Civility

    14 percent unemployment in Detroit…will all soon be detroit. Prez Zero and downgraded should have called out Hoffa and his Union Thugs for his violent rhetoric since he’s constantly giving bs speeches on civility.

  • Truth

    Deocrat Liberal policies have turned Detroit into the shiiiithole it is. Keep voting in Liberals and you’ll have the same result. Notice the Republican states that live within their means are doing well financially.

  • Truth

    0bama can spend as recklessy as he wants cause he knows the Media, Blogs, gooogle and Facebook have his back.

  • Monique

    @Please!!!: Oh Please!!! Kalisa was just pointing out the truth. Clearly you cannot accept the truth if it offends you!!! And Detroit is a sh!th0le – they should just nuke it!!!

  • GHU

    @ Please !!!…..Man does not live off Hope and sense of Community alone…You must be delusional… have you not noticed his policies have made matter worse and we are on the verge of a second recession cause of his reckless spending, borrowing and printing of money.

    numbers don’t lie

    The economic records set on Mr. Obama’s watch really are historic These include the first downgrade of sovereign U.S. debt in American history, and, relative to GDP, the highest federal spending in U.S. history save the peak years of World War II, plus the highest federal debt since just after World War II.

    The employment picture doesn’t look any better. The fraction of the population working is the lowest since 1983. Long-term unemployment is by far the highest since the Great Depression. Job growth during the first two years of recovery after a severe recession is the slowest in postwar history.

    Moreover, the home-ownership rate is the lowest since 1965 and foreclosures are at a post-Depression high. And perhaps most ominously, the share of Americans paying income taxes is the lowest in the modern era, while dependency on government is the highest in U.S. history.

    That’s quite a record, although not what Mr. Obama and his supporters had in mind when they pronounced this presidency historic.

    President failure, has there every been a worst President… and even when he’s booted out in 2012, the country will still have the monstrosity that is Obamacare and his Dodd/Franck financial reform bill… that have destroyed jobs, business and made America a banana republic joke.

  • GHU

    He’s following the Fox & Piven, Alinsky handbook on how to collapse the system in order to “Fundamentally Change” the Country. He told us all along.

  • crime

    They guy has blood on his hands..project Fast & Furious has killed many Mexicans and American Border Agents.

  • Stan

    @crime: You are sooooooooo RIGHT

  • obamalies

    to borrow a quote from Nazi propaganda minister Goebbels:
    “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

    No We CAN’T vote for anybody if the system is fundamentally flawed and rigged to give a false choice.
    He got in to office by spreading the idea of hope and change only to continue the same agenda which has been going on for DECADES.

    Voting only enables these morons. If major corporations and private blue blue blood aristocracy can no longer give campaign contributions we might have a true choice.

    Abolish any and all forms of aristocracy and blue blood ruling families! They have a great scam going.

  • Jules

    Won’t be voting for him in the next election. He’s just another empy suit. Will be voting Republican.

  • Halli

    So many misinformed angry right wing trolls. Some written by the same person it seems. I was hoping he would go all Harry Truman on these Republican clowns and he is finally!

    When Obama took office we were losing hundreds of thousands of jobs. A month AFTER the stimulus passed, he stopped losing jobs and started GAINING jobs in the first time in months. We were adding hundreds of thousands of jobs since than up until April of 2011.

    What happened? The Republicans happend.
    The economic recovery stalled literally two months after Republicans took over the House and prevented any measures from occurring. Their debt ceiling hostage taking spooked the markets so zero jobs were added in August and the first ever credit downgrade in history occurred because of THEIR actions. S&P were clear about that. No wonder there is 82% disapproval of congress, the WORST in history.
    They are the direct cause and root of these man-made problems and their plan was to blame it on the President because so many people have no clue how government works.

    I am glad the President is taking it to the Republicans in Congress because they ARE the problem. We don’t need more of the same with Republicans who are the reason we had a recession in the first place.

    GO Obama!

    You should do some more research!
    There is a one party system throughout the world today.
    And yes, I have posted several times using the same screen-name.

    When Bush left office, his last job was to put into place along with his flunkies a system to destroy the economy. Now we have people who believe that Obama, aka Barry Soetoro made positive changes to America.

    The system of Governance we have today was created out of the old world, they just dubbed it the New World Order. It is nothing more than Dis-order.

    There is only an illusion for the masses such as left-right paradigm. These divisions only serve to divide the people and force people one way or another. We all know that there is such a thing as REAL truth. One that cannot be manipulated or paid for.

    Good luck with your American (NWO) way of life. Keep watching those pseudo-reality shows and contests on that screen in the living room. Your government is back in control.

    We had Bush-Blair working and enforcing the same economic policies as well as military policies. We had Reagan Thatcher economics and policies which were the same. Cameron-Obama which are again the same. Wakie-WAKIE people of the world!
