NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- The middle class is struggling to survive and shrinking before our eyes, the Pew Research Center reported on Wednesday.
"America's middle class has endured its worst decade in modern history," the Pew Research Center said in its report. "It has shrunk in size, fallen backward in income and wealth, and shed some -- but by no means all -- of its characteristic faith in the future."
Give Obama another 4, and the Middle Class will go the way of the dodo.

Or Romney. Both have the same corporate masters; pro- "free trade", pro- Wall Street.

Want free trade? Go to a flea market-that's about the only place you'll find it.

I guess that's why Obama recently signed a free trade pact with the Colombian government, a regime that makes a sport of murdering labor advocates by the hundreds.

Good job Obama. Don't waste a crisis. I wonder what our situation would be if he focused on jobs and the economy first. He would be a shoe in for re-election.

Perhaps but we know Obama is a failure. Might as well give the less bad one a shot. We've seen what 4 years of failure gets us.

What makes you think he was given a choice?

We pretty much got most of what he said we'd get: Slow progress. Expect more of the same, no matter WHO gets in next.
