    Non-sequitur.

    You tried to make the claim that the 1981 recession was worse than Bush's Great Recession and you pointed to the unemployment rate skyrocketing to 10.8%. Well by your standards, Bush's Great Recession was worse because it was up to 14% when Bush finally fled Washington.

Bush and the GOP spend most of the last decade dismantling regulations or disregarding them by staffing industry people in oversight boards (something Obama's not much better at.) I don't think less taxes or regulations are really going to help much, here. But cutting spending WILL hurt the economy.
    The best thing for the economy would be for Obama to announce next week that he is resigning after apologizing for screwing up the U.S. Economy.

    I give you exhibit A: a nonsequiter that does not directly address anything I said. Obviously, con has no leg to stand on here.
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    Lived and worked both and know that to be a fact. try 17.5% home mortgage rates, high inflation, rising unemployment, a 20 misery index. Nice diversion from the Obama record but it isn't going to work. Just a reminder.

    Obama economic results in 2011, .4% GDP and 1% GDP growth in 2011, 25+ million unemployed or under employed Americans in 2011, 4 trillion added to the debt in less than 3 years, and a downgrade of the U.S. credit rating. Rising Misery index 7.83 to 12.67. First President in U.S. History to have our credit downgraded on his watch! 38-41% JAR and well over 50-55% disapproval ratings.

    How did Bush or the GOP generate these numbers?

    Obama economic results in 2011, .4% GDP and 1% GDP growth in 2011, 25+ million unemployed or under employed Americans in 2011, 4 trillion added to the debt in less than 3 years, and a downgrade of the U.S. credit rating.

    Again, a nonsequiter. We're not talking about any issue other than change in job growth. Stay on target, "like laser beam".

    I have given you the job growth since he took office, there is a net job loss that didn't begin when the GOP took over the House. Prior to the GOP taking the House Obama spent a trillion dollars to generate jobs and failed. It has nothing to do with spending cuts but rather confidence in this administration and the anti business pro union attitude of this administration.

    Is it a goal of yours to make a fool of yourself because you don't understand what people write or is it just accidental?
