Mildred under Obama the median family income has been reduced $4,000.00 per year. Gasoline is higher, food is higher and merchandise is higher so how are we better off? I have been working and my check has gotten smaller. Tell us your secret. Our houses lost value but the payments remained the same. Please share with us and no fuzzy Obama or Clinton math either.

Before you make comments do your homework! Mitt Romney and Bain Capital invested in Staples as a startup to give it a chance to grow. Today it provides over 87,700 jobs. In addition to Staples, "Bain Capital run by Mitt Romney went on to help Domino's Pizza, Sealy, Brookstone, and The Sports Authority. These are all US companies that now provide tens of thousands of jobs for the US. Romney is a businessman who is expert in turning around failing companies and right now the US is like a failing company. Obama has no clue about business and running the US government. We gave him 4 years and he has made a bad situation worse because he has zero business experience. The only person Obama benefited as President was himself because in the last 4 years his net worth jumped from $750,000 to $7.8 million! Id rather have a Morman businessman who knows how to run a business for President than a rock star wannabe who is constantly golfing, rubbing elbows with JayZ and Beyonce, attending basketball games and going on talk shows.

I think I'll go over to the Birmingham Patch site. At least the rich over there have their greedy, self serving, political ideologies down to a science, a smooth science. They're so used to winning they aren't even having these arguments like on Fenton Patch. They have the poor doing their bidding and believing in it too. Clever and twisted, eh? Kind of the difference between old money and no money and It's distasteful to talk about it.

Ava -- Why are you preaching to me? I agree that Mitt has worked hard for the money he has. He was / is a very intelligent man that knows how to govern, run businesses, create jobs and most importantly be a leader. Preach to those poor twisted souls that have been brain washed thinking Obama is good.

The problem with some people on this forum that are complaining about the rich, would do the same thing if they were rich. The only issue is, You are too lazy to get off your butt and make some money.Opportunities are everywhere. Event in this economy. You have to be driven and focused on your goals and you will achieve them. However complaining is a lot easier.... and you don't have to get off your butt to do that.
