    Who said it's not? It's on peoples' minds now as they respond to polls and still pick Obama over every candidate potentially running against him.

    Perhaps the 22 million underemployed that Bush handed Obama still blame Bush. Have you considered that?

    What do you think that means?

    When it makes economic sense, businesses will hire. I don't think that simply electing a Republican is going to solve all of the economic woes of America. The most ironic thing is that whoever the Republican candidate is, he or she will be running on "hope" and "change," but they'll be deathly afraid of uttering either of those words.
    McCain would have put stimulus spending towards creating jobs, not saving unions.

    Since when is an "estimate" a lie?

    It might be time to give up the ghost about McCain. Listening to his rambling lately we might be even worse off if the world felt we have a senile president.

    Since 40% of the people now believe that Obama is doing a good job and that number was 45% a few days ago that would be a declining number and I believe you are part of that 40%

    So Obama's stimulus package which was signed the first of February 2009 for shovel ready jobs didn't solve the unemployment problem yet you blame Bush. Don't see the 22 million lost jobs during the Bush years but I guess you make numbers up as you go along.

    When it is presented as fact to sell a program which is what happened during the Stimulus debate

    McCain wasn't my choice but sure would have beat what we have now.

    So the difference would have been what McCain spent the stimulus on. Great....

    I mean what you said is great rhetoric, but in reality we're talking about basically the same strategy that Obama failed with. So basically, no better.

    AdamT just posted what she said ... Here, read it again.

    "It should be understood that all of the estimates presented in this memo are subject to significant margins of error. There is the more fundamental uncertainty that comes with any estimate of the effects of a program. Our estimates of economic relationships and rules of thumb are derived from historical experience and so will not apply exactly in any given episode. Furthermore, the uncertainty is surely higher than normal now because the current recession is unusual both in its fundamental causes and its severity."


    You should be familiar with it by now, this is not the first time this has been shown to you.

I don't have any use for liberal politicians and will always vote for the one closest to my point of view.
    Do you realize what you're saying?? After claiming no less than 2,000 times about how "results matter," you finally confess that results don't really matter to you at all. Not one bit. All that matters to you is that the candidate put a "R" after their name.

    Damn, Conservative, who knew you thought the "R" after a candidates name stood for "Results."
