    This is silliness and ignorance on your part, Grim. You're blaming low income people for our problems, that's rich. Maybe you should stop listening to Beck and the other "conservative" talkers. Wake up and smell the coffee!!

    My challenge to you, is to prove that your assertion is true.
    BTW, not that it really matters, but did you know Bush wanted to get 100% mortgages for low income people through Fannie and Freddie? He gave several speeches on the subject.

    Supply side does not create demand, it creates production.. hence the term supply side. Without demand to drive production, there is no reason to continue to produce let alone increase production and from that, increase staff.

    Please give examples of Obama's overreaching so we can discuss.

    People banning together towards a common goal of mutual benefit will NEVER outlive it's usefulness.
    This is a country of equal opportunity not equal outcome. Middle class going up in class seems to be a problem with you. Doesn't seem you understand the concept of equal opportunity. Obama overreach has been shown throughout this forum so keep ignoring them starting with his stimulus plan which bailed out unions and state responsibility issues and then moved on to Obamacare.

    Straw man as to my position, the implosion of the financial markets and the hosing bubble popped before Obama was even in office.


    as do regulations and the demonization of profits.
    Regulations are actually being cut.

    Uhh regulations already have been reduced. Now are going to make an argument defending supply side economics or are you going to keep on diverting from that subject?

    Waiting for an answer to the question, why do you buy the Obama rhetoric? Results matter, not rhetoric

Obama is incompetent and shows the same characteristics of other liberals who try to impose liberal social engineering on the center right country.
    You forget that the DJIA started its downward slide in late-July and continued to fluxuation - mostly trending downward - throughout the month of August. Yes, it picked up by the last week of the month, but a slight end-of-the-month rally cannot correct the huge loses for the 4-6 six prior to a 1-week rebound...if you can call it that considering that the small gains have not put the numbers back where they were prior to July 22 when the stock market began its downward spiral.

    I am not surprised that the market is where it is, companies today are making profits because of low payroll and aren't going to hire until obama leaves office or changes his economic policies. That downward spiral that you claim isn't a spiral at all. What the market didn't like was no significant cuts in spending, period. There are no cuts in the latest plan just a reduction in growth.

Shocked!!
