    Would never happen. However, one does wonder if the conservatives stop the ability of the liberals to be portrayed as the obstructionists to the great ideas of the left, the press may play their part:

    This was/is not just another recession. US banks were in literal collapse. The symbiotic nature of the global economy, far more symbiotic than in the 1930's, exacerbated an already horrific meltdown. The unwinding of this disaster could easily take another five to ten years.

    Comparing this to other recessions is an exercise in naivete, political partisanship, or both.

    The pace of the recovery never came up during the campaign?

    Well I must admit, I wasn't prepared for such a rational, well-thought out response.

    Yes, he is. Financial crises are a special breed of clusterfuck.

    The excess in spending, the orgy in spending, is the cause of the lack of recovery. Some folks never will understand economics.

    However, bowing to the great minds here at USMB and the US electorate as a whole, I do believe that the most 'conservatives' should do is to voice their opposition and get out of the way. Let those that won, lead and prosper or fail. Whichever.
