Activist Bill:

Macy's and JC Penney are closing stores too. Best Buy is unstable too. What ever happened to the great improvement in the economy that is being credited to the Obama administration?


President Obama can be faulted for many things but blaming his policies for traditional brick and mortar retail stores closing is not one one of them.
Blame technology in the form of the internet in the way people shop today.

Every dollar spent at the on-line store is one less dollar spent at Radio
Shack etc.

People like yourself only makes his real mistakes (Obamacare) seem less real with your comment.

Activist Bill:

I was only pointing out that Obama and his administration have been bragging about creating millions of jobs, but they never say anything when hundreds of thousands of jobs are being lost.


That's a shame more Jobs lost
