    My argument doesn't have anything to do with Boo's argument, so I don't know why you keep bringing him up in my posts.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Two reasons for commenting on your post. First to point out your blind partisanship. The second to point out his blatant hypocrisy.

    today:

    New U.S. claims for unemployment benefits rose more than expected last week, a government report showed on Thursday, suggesting little improvement in the labor market this month after employment stumbled in May.

    Initial claims for state unemployment benefits climbed 9,000 to a seasonally adjusted 429,000, the Labor Department said. The prior week's figure was revised up to 420,000.

    Economists polled by Reuters had forecast claims to edge up to 415,000 from a previously reported count of 414,000.

    The claims report covers the survey period for the government's closely watched data on nonfarm payrolls for June.

    Claims increased 15,000 between the May and June survey periods, implying little or no gains in nonfarm payrolls this month after a modest 54,000 increase in May.

    The data is the latest in a series to underscore the weakness in the economy, which has persisted through the second quarter.

    Initial claims have now been above the 400,000 mark for 11 weeks in a row. Analysts normally associate that level with a stable labor market.

    He's not addressng my arguement, though I agree with him that little would have been different with McCain. Regardless of party we'd have seen much the same actions taken, with just as poor results. I argue that no matter what they did, they would lack the power to actually make the economy well. At best, they can minimalize the pain, stave off collapse, and pray other factors swing to the positive.

    But it is good practice to address my arguemnts with me, and his with him.

    I think he would have sunk even more for bailouts to the corporations who provide the biggest donations to him and the rest of the GOP.

    Along with more tax cuts for them.
    You mean like Obama did. I see.

    If two people are swimming in the sewage, would it matter which one is swimming in the deepest spot? Democrats pretty much suck IMO. But, here lately, and I emphasize "lately," they don't suck near as bad as the republicans. But they still suck.

    Hope that helps to explain things. If not, I will try again and type slower next time. LOL!

    Have a great day J-mac.

    Yes. As he said, not much different. Perhaps more ax cutting, which would likely make things even worse.
