    No, he hasn't. But to his defense, I suppose it's not easy responding to a post which highlights such blatant dishonesty. It's much easier to complain that I'm off-topic and post what he believes are Obama's results than it is to accept that his integrity was hung out to dry for everyone to see like a sheet on a clothesline.

    Anyway, with reports of the treasury, and headlines through that period constantly saying that revenues more than expected, why would you think that raising taxes would increase anything?

    Did revenues rise beyond three trillion dollars as of 2008?

    Which Joseph Stiglitz chief economist at the World Bank whom also won the Nobel Prize in economics in 2001,says is the true cost, not including long term cost, such as taking care of our wounded which exceeds the cost of Nam and double the cost of Korea.

    Now isn't that wonderful, sell that to the 25 million unemployed and under employed Americans! Keep spouting the rhetoric from the DNC which actually diverts from the Obama record TODAY!

    Yet the Democrat Senate Leader and enough Democrats voted for authorization. Keep diverting.

    Aw but I did, what does that have to do with the Obama record today? Wrong chart? LOL, I even posted the BLS statement on jobs in August. Guess you missed that one. You didn't miss it, you just ignored it.

    ??? I believe government should pay its way when the economy is not severely under-performing; the "pass the buck" generation does not.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    QUOTE Conservative;

    Aw but I did,
    The only thing i have seen was this add hom you posted before you you bugged out yesterday.
    Only the brainwashed, braindead, and clueless. No one in their right mind can blame Bush for what is going on 2 1/2 years after Obama took office.
    what does that have to do with the Obama record today?

    Nothing, just responding to one of your patented derailments.


    Wrong chart?

    If it wasn't the wrong chart, please clarify it for us.


    LOL, I even posted the BLS statement on jobs in August. Guess you missed that one.

    Just point at if for this ole man.


    You didn't miss it, you just ignored it.

    Kinda looks like you got the ole crystal ball back eh?

    Kind of looks like more trolling on your part as once again you support another liberal without really saying anything or refuting what I posted. Neither you or any other liberal seems to understand that it is the Obama record that will be on the ballot in 2012 and even the liberal NY Times is getting worried. Obama faces a landslide defeat and is doing nothing to reverse that possibility because he has no leadership experience nor does his Administration and supporters.

    You see neither Clinton or Bush results matter yet you continue to support someone who brings them up. All that does is divert from the Obama record which is a disaster. This thread is about Obama job performance in August and his cumulative performance which shows a net job LOSS, declining labor force, declining employment and some here want to tout Clinton's performance. Tell you what, write his name in on the 2012 ballot.

    I guess this two paragraph post is telling me to pound sand as for as clarifying anything that you have posted eh? Not surprising though.

    Well, it seems that you're in the minority, because poll after poll shows that most Americans recognize that sad state of our economy is mostly attributable to the Bush recession and not Obama's effort to clean up the Republicans' spilled milk. Polls also show Obama leading Republican challengers, though it is obviously too early for that to matter.
