    Are you saying a second stimulus would improve the economy? It didn't under the first one.

    They don't need to work too awfully hard at that.

    All the conditions for a world wide depression are pretty much already in place.

    Naturally they do need to continue blaming Obama and the stimulus for all the woes facing us, but that is really just propaganda for the home audience.

    This economy is not going to improve much regardless of what the GOP does or does not do.

    STill, your point that they are obstructionists bent on making things worse for the people does have some merit.

    Their most recent and most obvious example of that was their refusal to work to raise the debt level.

    That assinine move cost America a LOT of faith and confidence in the economic world.

    make sure the economy doesn't improve ?? The GOP forced Clinton to cut spending and balance the budget !! Reaganomics brought in nearly 25 YRs of economic growth !!Bush inherited a recession and a terror attack that was treated as criminal actions by the previous administration instead of war and using our military intelligence and resources to fight them giving us 911 !! Bush cut taxes the economy boomed again and the military kept us safe !! these are the facts !! libbs and the community reinvestment act are the biggst causes of what we have today !! And the lefts answers are to tax and spend more !! the fact that the GOP is better for America will be realized in 2013 when we control the congress and the White House !!The contrast between conservative prosperity and liberal waste will be so shocking that the left will be crippled!!

    World depression based on what?

    Although there have been some natural calamities due to shifting climate trends and some unpredictable factors there is not much that is really fueling this, except for "fear". Aside from Italy and Greece, most European nations aren't in bad shape. And by that..the stuff that makes a country "wealthy"; mining, agriculture, manufacturing..and now "information gathering" is relatively stable.

    So what we have is a money crisis. And this is basically as a result of what looks to be a world wide fraud.

    It's my hope that, on a world wide basis, the world evaluates the folly of allowing a greedy cadre of people to accumulate wealth, unchecked.

    Because this is the sort of nonsense that springs out of that. Almost every time.
