    I've been thru this Nonsensical game conservative plays.
    He tries to pin all the Job losss, or lack of gains, on Obama, by Including the first Few months of his Presidency when his policies certainly weren't to blame/had no chance to take efffect.
    This includes Jan 2009! during which we lost 800,000 jobs alone and Obama didn't even get sworn in til the 20th of that month!
    Not mention the next few Bush-remnant months where losses were heaviest/millions and his policies could not yet have taken effect.
    Without those first few Bush-legacy months, his whole debate falls apart. So he can't acknowledge that simple fact. Cognitive dissonance. When reality world meets partisanship.

    He must have been lying when he posted that. What other explanation can there be for why he won't tell me the title so I can see for myself if what he posted is true or not?

    So if Bush has no responsibility, I suppose he vetoed it, right? And there was an override? You want to blame Obama for everything since he got elected to the Senate, yet Bush has no responsibility for bills that he signed into law? I'm not giving Democrats a pass on this, but I do recall Bush signed it. So he gets some blame for things. I'm not looking to blame Bush for everything, but you're trying to absolve him from bills that he signed.



    Like far too many you buy what the media tells you. Some of the banks didn't want the money and the big ones have paid back the loans with interest. Where are the counter proposals to take money out of SS and Medicare? Raising taxes on the working class? You mean the 65 million working class that don't pay any FIT?
    So what does the GOP want to do to balance the budget? You don't want to take money out of SS, Medicare or Defense, and you don't want to raise taxes. Where is this 1.3 trillion going to come from? Is Boehner going to do a magic trick or something? You are saying at the end that taxes should be raised on working class folks. Class warfare!

    Like I said, good news for America is bad news for you and your ideology.

    Now why are you flat out refusing to defend what you post? Is it really that big of a lie that you don't even want to touch it now??







    Why are you so afraid to tell me the title of that book, Conservative? Don't you defend what you post? Or is what you post such BS that you realize it's not worth defending?



    [/COLOR]
    What is funny is that you don't seem to understand that these people were on strike and didn't actually lose their jobs. Doesn't really matter though since over 25 million plus unemployed and under employed Americans exist today over 2 1/2 years after Obama took office. That is bad news for America and to defend it makes you look foolish. Tell me when Bush had 25 million unemployed and under Employed Americans?

    What I have done is confuse you with facts. You want badly to blame Bush for the job losses when it was Democrats in Congress that controlled the legislative process and the purse strings. Whether or not it was the Bush legacy then is irrelevant, it is the Obama legacy today. We are over 2 1/2 years into the Obama Administration and today we have over 25 million unemployed and under employed Americans. That is the record that will be on the ballot in 2012 along with the 4 trillion he has added to the debt. If that is something you can support, so be it. I didn't vote for Obama in 2008 because of his resume then and won't vote for him in 2012 because of his record now.

    I know you have replied to this before, but under Hoover the unemployment rate was at 25% (40 million). Should we just ignore history or only the parts you want to?

    rocket88;1059855119]So if Bush has no responsibility, I suppose he vetoed it, right? And there was an override?

    Vetoed what? He certainly is responsible for everything until he left office in January 2009 along with the Democrat Congress. I will gladly give Bush blame for anything that happened from 2001-2008 and now look for liberals to give Obama the blame since January 2009 to the present which shows 25 million plus unemployed and under employed Americans, the highest in modern history TODAY!!! This is September 2011 data so how can anyone blame that on Bush?


    So what does the GOP want to do to balance the budget? You don't want to take money out of SS, Medicare or Defense, and you don't want to raise taxes. Where is this 1.3 trillion going to come from? Is Boehner going to do a magic trick or something? You are saying at the end that taxes should be raised on working class folks. Class warfare![/QUOTE]

    What the GOP wants is to grow out of this debt and that is the only way to do it. It is 14.6 trillion and there isn't enough money available from the rich to make a dent in the deficit and the debt. When will liberals understand that?

    Why is SS and Medicare even in the equation. Take it off budget and put it where it belongs. Let's see those 3 for 1 cuts that Obama proposed. I haven't seen them in writing, have you? Tip ONeil made the same Deal with Reagan in the 80's and then the same deal was made with GHW Bush in the early 90's. Did we ever get those cuts?

    BLS didn't exist until around 1948. Since BLS data was generated there never has been this high of unemployment/under employment. Why would you compare Obama record to Hoover? If you want to do that, so be it, the second worst record in total history and the worst in modern history. Does it make you proud to know that is a record that he is second to Hoover in and first in Modern History?

    Modern history is only present, and to disclude the past shows great ignorance on your part.

    Then you must be very proud that Obama is second to Hoover in having the highest total of unemployed and under Employed Americans in U.S. History. Congratulations, I am sure that is record that the 25 million plus aren't happy to be part of and this is 2 1/2 years after he took office. How is that "Hope and Change" working out for these Americans and you in school?
