    Nayh,

    It will STILL be Bush’s Fault…

    Luke Magnifico

    >mfw the global recession began a year before Obama was in office and they still blame him

    Anonymoose

    Sure – Clinton left office with a great economy in place. Sure – the beginnings of the recession were clearly coming years before we knew Obama’s name. Sure – it started before he was in office.

    But he’s in office now and IT’S STILL HERE.

    We elected him so that he would walk into the Oval Office and, bypassing congress, bypassing lobbies, bypassing the invisible hand of the free market, single-handedly hit the “Reset Economy” button like only a dictator with absolute power and infinite resources could.

    And he didn’t get the mother fucking job done.

    Luke Magnifico

    What a cunt.

    WistfulD

    In other words, we expected him to do the implausible, and he failed?

    Okay, so that’s unfair to him, but we still have to decide if we think he or Romney will do better from here on out. Obama will never get anything done because a Republican congress will never let him do anything. Romney, on the other hand, wants to do something that all evidence says is a bad idea, but he’s not really that into it. Tough choice–useless versus useless.

    Enemyofthecause

    It’s fascinating to think that the Democrats might want to vote Republican for the good of the country because the Republican congress doesn’t have the best interests in mind and would block even good ideas, if the Democrats had them.

    crewmanguy

    Democrats and Republicans are cut from the same cloth. Don’t believe that either party has the best interests of the average citizen as their goal.
    We need term limits, a cap on special interest group lobbying and donations, and a viable 3rd party to see real change. Corporations shouldn’t be allowed to donate at all.

    Wait… what? The recession ended three years ago. So the economy isn’t in an amazing state, well guess what? There was a recession only three years ago!

    @wisful its great how you only listen to the Media. Do YOU not remember that the first 2 years of Obama presidency the DEM’s had the house and Senate. They didn’t pass a single thing. Not only that the Dem Run Senate hasn’t pass a budget in how long???? yep 3 years that’s all of Obama’s time hes been in office. Didn’t he say he was going to stop all the lobbyist, well what a surprise they are going strong at the white house. look at Libya Used military force, Aren’t you against that.

    That’s actually not true, the Democrats may have had a simple majority but that doesn’t stop a filibuster from shutting down legislation. The Dems never actually had the 60 votes necessary to defeat a filibuster. In July and again in September 2009 that had 60 votes IF the independents had voted with them, but a month isn’t a lot of time to push a bill through. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/111th_United_States_Congress#Senate And actually, in Libya the US didn’t act, they loaned equipment and troops to the UN to support a “no fly zone” and UN cooperation had already been approved by Congress.

    If every Dem voted for a bill and the independents voted with them, they had the votes to beat a filibuster, but only in those two months, not two years as you stated. I said Congress gave authorization to cooperate with the UN, the President didn’t have to get approval for Libya because he already had it under the blanket UN cooperation resolution.

    @the anon replying above in this: It looks like you posted a chart or spreadsheet, and it doesn’t seem to have formatted correctly, can you post a link or screen shot to the source? With regard to Libya, the Obama could have done everything with executive orders, the way Bush Sr. went in to Iraq. I’ll need to check, but I think in this case, we were acting in accord with our duties as part of NATO, so Congressional consent and support is implied by the NATO charter we signed when NATO was formed.

    The recession hasn’t ended. Just because someone announced it on TV doesn’t make it true. When we have positive job growth, GDP growth greater then 3%, and a genuine increase in the housing market as a WHOLE (too many people point to this month or that segment, or both to try to make it look like good news), then I’ll believe the recession is over. The fact is things are getting worse, most foreclosures haven’t hit the market yet, when they do, prices will go down further. Interest rates are starting to tick up too (that’s actually a good sign,… Read more »

    Nurgen

    Recession. Read the word, there’s a clue in that. 1% growth is not a recession, 3% growth is not a recession. When the GDP is growing it’s not a recession.
    Feel free to say how bad the economy is, but calling the current state of affairs a recession isn’t honest.

    crewmanguy

    How do you account for the net job loss? Companies reporting greater profits at the cost of jobs isn’t GDP growth. It’s a recession, but numbers can and are manipulated to make companies look more profitable. That’s why most lay offs come at the near the end of the quarter. It’s how they are able to offset poor revenue by showing decreased costs.
    If we had REAL GDP growth, we’d have positive net job creation.

    Anonymoose

    This doesn’t really surprise me at all. The GOP might have a unified desire in wanting to see Obama gone, and might agree that stonewalling him is the best chance at profit for their party – but that’s all they’ve got.

    Their base is fractured, their desires amongst themselves are inconsistent, their levels of conservativism don’t have an agreed upon central form. They’re a dog chasing cars. Let’s say Romney catches the bumper and beats Obama. Then what?

    They’ve got NO PLAN for what to do afterwards. They’d be a MESS. I can’t vote Republican this year knowing that.

    Whereas the Democrats plan is to borrow more money to throw at their supporters which strangely enough does not have a positive effect on the economy.

    Luke Magnifico

    And the Republicans plan? Repeal the only thing making the price of healthcare somewhat reasonable and reinstate Reagonomics.

    crewmanguy

    By reasonable, are you talking about the cost of health care? There isn’t any part of the current healthcare plan that make it more affordable to anyone. There is a provision saying that insurance companies HAVE to give you health care (there will certainly be a higher premium for it) another provision requires businesses of with over a certain number of employees to provide a health care option, but the businesses don’t have to contribute, and there is a provision saying that everyone has to get health care or pay a fee (basically a tax, it’s even going to be… Read more »

    Republicans depend on market, Democrats depend on government. Either way you lose. No matter where you live in the world you most likely live in a predatory system that offers the illusion of choice.

    Oh and might i add that the healthcare system obama implemented in some serious bullshit. Just who do you think is goin to be supplying these government run hospitals and systems with support and “care?”…Private companies. And for the record i am not a republican. I believe in Charity as much as anyone else, but forcing people to choose between private healthcare and “public” healthcare is about as charitable as telling a homeless man that i will buy him groceries so long as he buys from my pre-approved list of vendors. Or like Reboot once said, “It’s like solving the… Read more »

    Tychosonic

    The affordable care act has nothing to do with government run hospitals. There is no public healthcare instated under the legislation Obama signed. It is simply reforms aimed at stopping insurance companies from unjustly denying people coverage, incentives for people to buy insurance, and CUTS to medicare. “Obamacare” actually cuts the amount of money the government spends on healthcare and encourages people to buy private insurance to get private healthcare. You have formed a political opinion on something you are not informed about, which is a huge problem in this country. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patient_Protection_and_Affordable_Care_Act

    crewmanguy

    Actually, they won’t deny coverage, but they will make rates ridiculously high. Anyone who doesn’t take that coverage either has to go into a government pool of high risk individuals and pay those rates, or not have insurance and pay the health care fee (collected by the IRS, but some how they say it’s not a tax). Don’t link to wikipedia, as the article can be rewritten by anyone. Instead, look at the sources the article links to and use those.

    outlanderssc

    Sorry, but in the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” which has been dubbed “Obamacare” there are no “government run hospitals”(no death panels, either), just like there aren’t any under the same program in Massachusetts – “Romneycare”. The same hospitals that exist now provide the same care. It isn’t “public healthcare”, you can chose your own healthcare provider. You don’t even legally have to enroll, although there is a tax penalty if you don’t. Actually, it’s more like “no fault” car insurance – by requiring people to own insurance you eliminate freeloaders that drive uninsured and then can’t pay when… Read more »

    The best financial experts and world-wide economists, top money-brains above any and all commentators here warned us at the end of Bush’s era that this astronomical financial disaster would take more than a mere 4 or 8 years to recover from. Anyone that believes that Obama alone was going to cure this in one term has their heads up their patoot.
