    I guess the second longest expansion in GDP post-war constitutes "failure" to the Left.

    Are you totally unhinged by the election, Flail-Loser, that you console yourself with drivel from the HuffPooPoo?

    Where did you get that from? I got:

    Edit: And we all should have a nice laugh about where most of Bush's GDP expansion came from: residential mortgage debt

    Ya' mean like idiotic dems of the Barney Frank mold who insisted that those who couldn't afford homes must be given loans to buy homes they obvioulsy couldn't afford, and then stood before the american people and told us everything was just fine weeks before the housing bubble collapsed, thereby becoming the root cause of our current financial disaster?

    You know, the financial disaster that was primarily caused by dem's who were too stupid to understand that people who can't afford to make a house payment shouldn't be given the means to buy said houses in the first place because it will undoubtedly cause a financial disaster in the end.

    Christ, liberals are fuckin' idiots, and dem's are mired in a forest of abject denial of their role in this mess.

    I noticed you didn't mention anything about the fraudulent lenders or the deregulation that allowed the collapse of the housing bubble to impact the rest of the economy so much.

    Many banks weren't far behind Fannie or Freddie (can't remember which) in their involvement in creating and trading in subprime mortgages.

    Notice how I said "dems are in abject denial of THEIR role in this mess......Meaning: Both sides are resposible, and it's time for clowns like this Flaylo idiot to start admitting it. It's time he/she also start admitting that the dem's attempts to fix the problems have only made it worse. They have failed, miserably. No amount of Huffpost liberal BS can change that fact.

    the bush cuts can be accountable for shit outside a return to hardcore supply-side deficit spending. failed policy indeed. i ended up paying more tax because of how they were slapped together.

    It is failure to these post-modern progressive parasites like Flaylo. Flaylo and his ilk couldn't make a buck to save their lives. Their parents raised them to expect everything, do nothing and demand accolades for both. What do you expect? Why do you think we have all these twenty-somethings and beyond living off Mommy and Daddy? They're parasites.
