    some seven years before he took office...


    Someone explain to me how Obama's continuation of moronic fiscal policies means that the idiots who got us into this mess in the first place are somehow the ones to get us out.

    I just don't grasp the partisan proaganda.

    Oh you mean the idiots who took over Congress in 2006? Those would be Democrats am I right?
    But the dimwits who swept him into office under the mantra of "change" must support Obama quadrupling the Federal deficit right? That happened under his watch.
    He could have said we're spending too much and offered a budget cutting plan. But he didn't and the Democrats in Congress happily went along.
    This is Obama and the Democrats' baby, nothing partisan there.

    How did Barry Obolshevik and the rest of his party lackeys vote on the bailouts and worthless stimulus packages?

    Both Republicans and Democrats belong to the party of the corrupt. They have all been bought by the monied interests on Wall Street.

    I say put the whole lot of them on trial for treason, and then execute them as traitors to America.

    Then we can clean up the mess and run this country properly.

    One Party, one president, did not get us to where we are today. Look back to Vietnam, another war of choice where both Johnson, Nixon and Ford continue to wage war and not raise the revenue necessary to pay for it. Under Ford, a direct result of the Vietnam mess, a new word needed to be created to explain our economic morass - stagflation.
    Ford interveined, are you old enough to remember his effort to Whip Inflantion Now?
    Carter got the blame which rightly belongs to his predecessors, as history continues to be rewritten. Reagan's legacy is lauded though the facts strongly suggest only the very wealthy benefited from his eight years of spend and don't tax leadership, Bush II tried to right the wrongs of RR, but got booted out for trying to inject some discipline into our economy, and Clinton, was both smart and lucky, but by continuing the de-regulation of Reagan made the bed for Bush II and his lassie faire brand of capitalism. The result of which we saw one year ago.
    So, it's Obama's turn and he has less than four years to try his brand of reform. But to blame Obama for our crisis economy is disengenous, the seeds were planted long ago and watered by every Congress and every administration since the end of WW II.

    I suppose the thread "Obama ruined the Economy" has now been proven absurd. Of course few believed it, and the thread was simply another effort of an ill informed troll.

    If you want to go back that far then you could lay the blame for economic booms and busts at the feet of the Federal Reserve for their monetary policies.

    But we're dealing with this current economic downturn and the current administration that is in charge, or supposed to be.
