    Sure, and those main street conservatives that ruled both houses of Congress and the White House for six years did a brilliant job of predicting the financial crisis.

    Unfortunately economics is anything but a hard science, and predictions are notoriously unreliable from every side.

    Obama did not add $4 trillion to the debt. Why do you insist on repeating that lie when it's been thrown back in your face countless times.

    No President has total control of the economy, even if he can do whatever he wants to do without unrelenting opposition from the other side of the aisle. Again, you only criticize. You fail to present a single alternative policy course that wouldn't have made the situation worse rather than better.

    Most of our debt is the result of our unfunded wars and tax cuts to the rich over the last 30 years.

My point is that the stimulus did in fact give the economy a pick me up which is fine, but did not invest very much in anything that would have a sustainable impact. So the gains were relatively short term.
    Is it your opinion that infrastructure improvements and preventing layoffs of teachers, firefighters, and police have no value?

    Indeed, McCain, who (shudder) might have been president if sensible heads had not prevailed, wasn't even aware we were in a recession in the run up to the election.

    Republicans control one HOUSE not the govt. and the Ryan plan cut the budget deficit as did Cut, cap, and balance. What was the Obama position on those and where is the Obama plan to cut the deficit?
    President Obama has aplan to cut the deficit, you know it, I know it and so does the whole world President Obama's plan includes ending the bush tax cuts, closing tax loop holes. The conservatives like you refuse to do any thing that might reduce the amount of money going to the rich. The republican conservatives like you have no plan other then to find more ways to continue the plunder of the poor,elderly and middle class

    Change is coming the carpetbagging tactics of rich will be ending in 2012

    I doubt results mean anything to you since during the last months of the Bush admin. the economy was dropping like a ****ing rock, yet you would vote for him again if you could.

    It was a question, not a statement, that is why it had a question mark at the end of it.

    wrong-the moronic war on poverty and other handouts designed to buy votes is what caused the deficit. tax cuts cost nothing
