Times change and with the change, rhetoric changes. If it didn't, the Republicans would have nothing to say.

I agree with the guy above me - Obama made it a point to say he was creating jobs. If you sell yourself on it, we are going to expect you to do it.

Whether they admit it or not, some Republicans actually believe that President Obama is the Messiah! I have seen them refer to the President as the Messiah numerous times on Y/A. Liberals, on the other hand think the President is a decent man with great ideas, who has been undermined by the Republicans in Congress.
