    Okay, maybe this has slipped passed a lot of people....ESPECIALLY the alleged "liberal media".....but when Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) made his televised response for the GOP to President Obama's State of the Union address earlier this week, he let slip this little tidbit:

    "...There is no doubt the President came into office facing a severe fiscal and economic situation."

    http://www.wishtv.com/dpps/news/pol...-state-of-the-union-address-nt11-jpe-_3705025

    :eek: Holy Crap! Amid the usual rehash of neocon half-truths, distortions and lies regarding Obama's 2 years in office, Ryan ADMITS that Obama inherited one major steaming mess from the previous administration!

    That's right all you oathers/birthers/teabaggers/neocons/Libertarians and what have you....the poster boy for the GOP rebuttal to the President's SOTU just derailed the Shrub propaganda train of "it's all Obama's fault"!

    And not ONE main stream media entity that I know of has asked the question of any GOP politico....."So, does this mean that the historical narrative for the Bush administration is validating it's critics from the Democratic, liberal and Independent parties to a large degree?"

    Fascinating!

    Holy crap? Democrats had been in the majority in congress and the senate for two years when Obama was elected. You could make the argument that democrats set up the financial collapse as the biggest October surprise in history. The "man" who was holding all the cards was the powerful banking chairman and he confessed that he had "ideological blinders" on when Fannie collapsed.

    I really think you might want to look up the word "accidently". I don't think it means what you think it means.

    is anyone pretending the economy was good with President Obama took over? Could you name that person?

    Problem isnt that it was bad when he took over. The problem is that he has formulated policies that have made it worse.

    First off, you need to stop regurgitating false neocon talking points, Avatar. The Dem win in 2006 DID NOT give the Dems the majority votes in the Senate necessary to pass their reforms and proposals. Add to that the record number of filibusters by the Party of NO, and a key support of your "argument" disappears. To try and IGNORE the deregulation and reaganomic approach by the Shrub & company effect on the country would only be accepted by someone who is only attune to one type of news source.

    As I suspected, when a GOPer makes a slip and acknowledges that Obama inherited a steaming mess from the previous administration, the neocon apologist rush to the Shrub's defense with the same tired half-truths and distortions....pathetic.

    Not according to the CBO, or the other economic indicators of late. It's not all peaches and cream, but it sure as hell isn't "staying the course" of doom that we were on.

    Funny, a GOPer let's slip of the neocon idol imagery being a fuck-up in reality, and all the neocon parrots can do is squawk tired mantras.

    Democrats had control of all the powerful committies in congress when they gained the majority in 06 (really 07). The system was already in place which was worthy of an organized crime syndicate. Democrats created it back when Clinton had the majority in the early 90's. Force banks to make bad loans or face civil rights litigation. Granted republicans were lazy but the collapse was a democrat operation.

    Well you could make that argument, but then you didn't read what he said about,

    Good evening. I'm Congressman Paul Ryan from Janesville, Wisconsin — and chairman here at the House Budget Committee....President Obama just addressed a congressional chamber filled with many new faces....Our debt is the product of acts by many presidents and many Congresses over many years. No one person or party is responsible for it. There is no doubt the president came into office facing a severe fiscal and economic situation.

    So now your argument falls flat on it's face.
