    But the cuts don't take effect untill after the election. And the next congress has no legal obligation to uphold this agreement.

    You see, the problem is you and many on the left put way too much credence in the president...and somewhat niave to the way our legislative system works.

    You, and many others, got so wrapped up in blaming Bush for all of our economic woes, you opted to ignore the truth....the President cant do a dam thing without congress (with the exception of an executive order).

    That being said, the GOP has a majority in the house. If the economy continues to weaken, the blame will go to the senate (democrats), the house (republicans) and the President....sort of where the blame should have gone for the last 10 years with the exception of the year plus when there was a democratic majority in both houses AND the white house.

    So to think that the GOP wants the economy to weaken further is typical partisan rhetoric spin.

    But hey....nice try....but you are fooling no one but yourself....and maybe TruthMatters.

    Of course spending cut are going to weaken this economy.

    Even less money circulating in the economy is bound to do that.

    Less cash to spend = less profits to make = less new investment to capture profits = Less cash to spend = less profits to make = less new investment to capture profits =Less cash to spend = less profits to make = less new investment to capture profits =Less cash to spend = less profits to make = less new investment to capture profits =Less cash to spend = less profits to make = less new investment to capture profits =Less cash to spend = less profits to make = less new investment to capture profits =Less cash to spend = less profits to make = less new investment to capture profits =Less cash to spend = less profits to make = less new investment to capture profits =Less cash to spend = less profits to make = less new investment to capture profits...

    Get it?

    yo...

    No one is doubting that spending cuts will have a short term adverse affect on the economy. Not sure why you felt the need to toss in your post in a sarcastic arrogant way.

    But...only a partrisan idiot would think that ther GOP's goal was to hurt the economy....We do not have the money and we need to cut spending....like it or not.

    Just as the right blames Obama for everything. maybe you want to rationalize comments by the right but it clear to most that Republicans want Obama to fail which means a bad economy.

    Nope...the right does not blame Obama for everything.

    The right blames two things on the left that have added to our woes..

    The stiumulus
    The new healthcare law.

    And both were pushed through when both houses were democratic majorities.....along with a democratiic white house
