    I've said all along that the decline started the day Pelosi picked up the Speaker Gavel and now Obama has decided to back me up with this handy, dandy chart beginning right after Madame Pelosi became Speaker.

    Surely even Libruls can see this? It's a decline we can't hide.

    Thanks, Barack.

    Then I assume you attribute the current economic surge to the Democratic Congress also.

    Way to go Pelosi and Reid

    Not to hear 0bama tell it:

    "One year later, it is largely thanks to the recovery act that a second depression is no longer a possibility," Obama said.

    Obama says stimulus bill saved troubled economy - Yahoo! News

    The major concern was a collapse of the banking system at the time. Seems like a number of banks were forced to accept tax dollars and most paid it back in about six months. Doesn't sound like they needed it too bad. As far as keeping other companies from going bankrupt, it was a complete failure.

    Rachel Maddow was great last night, talking about Republicans and the stimulus. Mostly about the hypocrisy of Republicans. It's really funny. If you want to know why Republicans hate Rachel, just read what she has to say. I wish I could post it all, but I provided a link. You rock, Rachel!!

    "Dozens of congressional Republicans, who have praised, say, the stimulus at home while denouncing it in Washington, seem to be unembarrassed about how two-faced and incoherent it is to tout those two positions simultaneously—at least to have seemed to be unembarrassed. Tonight, I am pleased to report we have some early signs of embarrassment.

    Among those snared in the stimulus hypocrisy web is Republican Senator James “Mountain” Inhofe of Oklahoma. Last week, we noted that Senator Inhofe had proudly attacked the stimulus over the course of the past year, but he was caught touting stimulus spending in his state as, quote, “great news.”

    In light of that reporting, Senator Inhofe has gone for help to a conservative media outlet called CNS News complaining about us. He said, quote, “She would now like her viewers to believe that because Senator Inhofe praised stimulus money going to Oklahoma, that Senator Inhofe is somehow a hypocrite. Hardly!”

    That was the quote from Senator Inhofe‘s office.

    For the record, Mr. Inhofe‘s office has not asked our show for a correction, and, in fact, none will be offered. I understand that being called a political hypocrite is an awful thing to hear, but you can‘t just insist that you‘re not to be called a hypocrite if your record indicates that you are one.

    Senator Inhofe, in fact, praised toxic super-fund cleanup spending in Oklahoma as part of the stimulus. He praised it as great news and necessary funds. Then he denounced the stimulus that provides those necessary funds as something that didn‘t work. He told the same outfit, CNS News, that the stimulus bill was nothing but social engineering and welfare. Oh, and those necessary funds that were great news for my state.

    If you are both praising something as necessary and saying it doesn‘t work, you are a hypocrite. You may not want to be called a hypocrite, but the solution to that is: don‘t act like one. Don‘t just complain about people who accurately report how you do act, OK?"

    Check out the rest of what she says. She really exposed their lies and hypocrisy.

    Incumbents in general are going down.
    Some of them do happen to be Republicans.
    But mostly it sucks to be a donkey right now.

    Looks to me like as soon as 'Madame' Pelosi was able to rid herself of the burden of the Bush administration, things immediately turned out.

    An excellent case for a Democratic Congress AND a Democratic president.

    thanks for pointing that out.
