You're the poster child for media brainwashing. The F-A-C-T-S are:

-- We're $5.6 TRILLION more in debt than the day Obama took office.
-- There are more women living in poverty than the day Obama took office.
-- There are more Americans on food stamps since the day Obama took office.
-- There are more Americans on "disability" than the day Obama took office.
-- There are more Americans on welfare than the day Obama took office.
-- Since January 2009 the number of full-time employees has fallen by over 600,000 while part-time employment has grown by almost 1.4 million.
-- There are American households earning $4,300 less since Obama took office.
-- There are 4.1 million fewer jobs than projected by the Obama administration.
-- Since Obama took office, the jobs recovery has been slower than after the Great Depression.
-- Since January 2009 over 600,000 manufacturing jobs have been eliminated, the opposite of the Administration’s projected increase of 408,000 manufacturing jobs due to their trillion-dollar stimulus.
-- During the Obama years new workforce dropouts have outnumbered new employees by 10 to 1.
-- There are more unemployed now than when the economy was in “free-fall.”
-- In September 2012 there were 4.8 million long-term unemployed (that is, for over six months), over two million more than when President Obama took office in January 2009.
-- The “Obama Misery Index” shows that unemployment and debt have risen by a combined 80% since the start of the Obama Administration.

Oh, but bin Laden is dead. Whoopdedoo.
