    People who continue to demand instant reemployment, instant money in their pockets, instant credit, instant tax relief, and other happy solutions they've come to expect need to get it hammered home that this recession is deeper than anyone anticipated. How many remember other recessions, their causes, and the fact that no recession is "fixed" overnight and not without pain.

    The hell you say?!?!??

    You mean that Barry Obolshevik riding in onto the District of Criminals on the white charger really didn't mean that my house was going to be paid for, gasoline would magically appear in the tank of my car, I'd get a nice fat check from "his stash", and the sea level would just lower for no apparent reason?

    Well, I'll be dipped. :rolleyes:

    Actually, if you look, you will see that curve starting to move up aggressively. Obama has worked a miracle.

    Praise Obama from whom all Blessing Flow.
    Praise Him all creatures here below.
    Praise him above you Heavenly Host.
    Praise Barak Obama, He's the most!

    Amen!

    19 months is hardly overnight.

    no one denies obama inherited a pretty shitty situation. i would argue the worst was behind us when he took over.

    he enacted the major economic policy he wanted. republicans didn't (couldn't) stop him.
    in many respects the economy is doing well. corporate profits are up. the dow is up. copmanies are sitting on almost two trillion in cash. yet they're not hiring?
    let me give you a hint. it ain't george bush. it's BHO, and he needs to start taking responsibility for that.

    The worst is still not behind us folks.

    We are just getting started.
    Globalization and free trade is eating our lunch and will continue to do so.

    I hear they just doubled the garment workers wages in Bangladesh to around $45/month.
    How can we compete with that?
