    You guys crack me up.

    We've now gone from "When does it become Obama's economy?" to "It was never Bush's economy." I'm perfectly willing to lay blame on Obama for the fact that we're still in a terrible economy, but before that, it was Bush. He did a crappy job managing the deficit and the economy. Obama's done a crappy job trying to get us out of it.

    How many budgets did the Republicans balance between 2001-2007? ZERO! At a time when they controlled both houses of Congress and the White House.

    Someday, you'll realize that Democrats are only half of the problem. Three guesses as to who the other half is.

    Because that's what increases the debt. You have to eliminate the deficit before you can pay off debt.

    And what's the fastest way to pay down the debt? Spending cuts alone? Increased taxes alone that go toward the debt? Or a combination of both?
    I have already discussed this. Given that the deficit is ~73% of available revenues, not matter how much you think you can raise taxes, you have to cut spending even more.
    Entitlement spending, alone, exceeds available revenue by almost 10%.

    You know, in 2008 I jokingly wrote that soon Obama would learn the difference between making speeches about policy, and the difficulty of actually trying to implement it. I wonder if I was giving him too much credit.
    Don't you realize we'd be at 25% unemployment, if it weren't for Barack Obama.

    What you fail to understand is that NO President has balanced the budget in the last 30 years and the only time in the last 30 years that they controlled both the WH and the Congress was 2003-2006. Time to try it again, this time with people like Ryan, Cantor in the House and Rubio and Rand in the Senate

    They didn't do it last time, why would I think they'll do it now?

    Which includes Republicans. Reagan and both Bushes. I'm the one who's coming out and saying "Obama didn't fix things, it's time to support someone else." Some of the blame goes on Democrats, but some of it goes on Republicans too. Can't you see that?

    This time there are more Freshmen in the Congress and if they don't do it they will be fired like the last group of Republicans. We have seen what liberalism has done the past two years and it has failed.

    I can indeed see that there is enough blame to go around, when will Obama accept some of it? It is the Obama economy and yet many here continue to blame Bush

    I am still waiting for a response to a couple questions I gave you since others cannot answer them, what part of the 2009 deficit was Obama's, what economic plan does Obama have in place to create net job growth, please explain to me when this becomes the Obama economy since Bush was responsible for the 2001 results but Obama wasn't responsible for anything that happened in 2009?

    Very early in TX, so enjoying educating liberals and watching liberals run when challenged and never answering any questions.
