    Well..finally...after 1 year in office trying to ram through a host of unwanted progressive social programs Obama realizes that he has done little to NOTHING to help our ailing economy.
    Ya...keep blaming Bush...that strategy will work...:lol:
    Can you say FAIL!!!???
    and I just love this one.....first it was Obama: "The Stimulus has put us on the road to recovery!!!!!"
    now it's...
    The Stimulus was a monumental failure...Obama's 187 billion dollar jobs program was a failure....Obama will now raise taxes on all Americans because he cannot cut spending, the Democrat Congress would have a shit fit....the debt ceiling was raised to 14.3 trillion dollars...Obama has added 2 trillion dollars to the National Debt in his first year in office...

    Yep Obama OWNS THIS ECONOMY!!!!

    Hey look. Chris was touting the massive recovery in housing based on speculative investment....not reality.

    I hope this Congress is shown the door. It's patently obvious that they don't know shit about spending the people's money on things America asks for. All they want to do spend it on their lobbyist buddies.

    1.2 BILLION dollars later we know that, yet the kool aid drinkers do not. No jobs were created at all by the outlay of money. If we add in the bank bail out we are over 2 Trillion dollars but some of that got paid back.

    But OBama's solution is to demonize banks, proposing to slap a big tax on them. This is the Democratic way: When people are making money you tax them and when they aren't you give them subsidies.
    The man is totally clueless. Now he is floundering. You would think the President would have access to competent advisors who can tell him how to fix this. It isn't a mystery.

    He did get left more messes than just the economy.

    BTW the stimulus was smaller than intended because somepeople screamed about its size.

    There was a reason for it original size much like there was a reason the generals in Iraq asked for a large force even though they were refused it.

    It would have worked MUCH better to stem the tide.

    So 28% of GDP wasn't enough to end the recession? Even though much smaller interventions in the past did so?
    WHat planet do you live on again?
