    Study this.....

    16% REAL unemployment and .7% GDP growth, inflation, worthless $, $14,500,000,000,000 debt....

    Yeah, stimulus, resounding success. And didn't you just admit that Obama is a clueless fucktard? Or, maybe you just admitted that Obama actually has made things worse.

    I always like the liberal "it was worse then Obama knew" argument. First of all, even if it were right time has worn that one out too. In 2 1/2 years he's improved the economy zip. That he didn't even improve the economy in that long says he doesn't know how.

    But just the logic of the quote is even more funny. Your argument is actually that the guy who you stick to knew how to fix the economy wasn't reading the economy correctly. He didn't know how bad it was. He can't look at an economy and know what state it's in, and yet he can fix it. That's actually your argument in his defense, that he doesn't know if an economy is bad or how bad, so we can still believe he can fix one, it's not his fault.

    Liberal intelligence, a true oxymoron. Only a moron would buy it.

    But it would be worse.

    That is the entire premise of this administration. They scream the sky is falling, a tactic used to pass the entirety of their legislative agenda, and then when things still go to hell they say it would have been worse.

    They desperately attempt to prove a negative, and that is why Americans no longer believe the constant cries of crisis. Americans have become desensitized.

    Yep. Turns out that things were worse then the all knowing one knew, which made his plan to turn around the economy with the same policies W used to destroy it even more intellectually vacuous. It's not what road we're on, it's who's behind the steering wheel that's important.

    As a libertarian it was even more frustrating to watch W headed straight for the cliff and then Obama wrest the steering wheel away and the only change he made was to press harder on the gas. My objection isn't criticism of Bush, it's that Obama isn't responsible for making it worse. He is.
