    Right, and 2 1/2 years later with 14.7 million unemployed, 15.8% total unemployment, 4 trillion added to the debt, 1.8% GDP growth, a rising misery index, the economy is still Bush's? When does the economy become Obama's?

    Now ya know. Make a note of it.

    And vice versa, Obama with a Democrat controlled Congress in overwhelming numbers has generated the 14.7 million unemployed Americans TODAY, the 4 trillion added to the debt, the 15.8% total unemployment, rising misery index, low economic growth. higher gasoline prices, over 70 rounds of golf and close to 30 re-election fund raisers. That is Obama lack of leadership that you are so proud of.

    Right, unemployment is up 13% under Obama. At this point in Bush's first term, it was up 38%. At this point in Bush's father's first term, it was up 28%. At this point in Reagan's first term, it was up 35%. Yet you voted to give each of them 4 more years.

    At this point in Carter's first term, unemployment was down 25%. At this point in Clinton's first term, unemployment was down 23%. Yet you voted to kick them out of office.

    When you demonstrate you give a **** about the economy, you will cease being a hypocrite.

    So 13% translating to 14.7 million unemployed Americans is good performance to you? You love percentage change when you believe it benefits you. Tell that to the 15.8% unemployed Americans and the American taxpayer that now has to fund an addition 4 trillion added to the debt what a great job Obama is doing.

    That doesn't make up for your misunderstanding of how our government operates. Did you learn what I taught ya about the president being responsible for faithfully executing laws? It's important that you comprehend how our government works if you intend on keeping up with the debate.

    Nope. That's not even in the same hemisphere of what I said. It's an absolute shame you can't understand what people say.

    I said his performance, so far, has been better than every singe Republican you ever voted for.

    Capiche?

    Well, Obama's in town, and has gotten praise from John Cornyn for being there now.

    Thread = dead.

    You are the one that keeps bringing up Bush, Reagan, GHW Bush as if that means anything today. Those Presidents are out of office and Obama must have liked GW Bush's numbers so much that he added 2.1 million more unemployed today and added 4 trillion to the debt all those 2 1/2 years after taking office. When does it become the Obama economy?

    Before Obama was even elected president, the debt was already growing at a rate of about 1 trillion a year.

    I'd like to spend more time slapping you around as usual, but today is a holiday and I'm taking the rest of the day off. Have to prepare for family and friends who will be arriving shortly for BBQ and boating on the lake.

    Have a great 4th everyone!
