    Very intelligent reason not to vote for a Republican, taste that same disgusting thing we had in our office? Are we supposed to know what you are talking about?

    Remind me what the distinction is between causation and correlation.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... 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."

    The argument that the recession inherited by obama is worse than Reagan's is bogus and the misery index proves it.
    The misery index doesn't prove ****. Inflation s not indicator of the economy. Sadly, something you will never learn.

    Just sayin'.
    What the hell does Congress have to do with anything, it was Bush's economic policy that he implemented while Governor of TX that put the country in recession 2 months after he took office. Remember Presidents are totally responsible for the economy but only when that President is a Republican who affects the economy for the next four years after he leaves office.

    The difference is that no one claims Bush caused the 2001 recession, while you insist that Democrats and Obama caused the 2007 recession.

    Cheney was disgusting? Would love to discuss that further but not on this thread. Seems Bush isn't part of this thread either but both you and Sheik cannot seem to let him go. When is the statue of limitations up on Bush? One would think that the superior intelligent class(Liberals) with total control of Congress in overwhelming numbers and the most brilliant President in U.S. History should have solved the problem in the two years from 2009-2010. Maybe they aren't as intelligent as you believe or that "hope and change" message meant something different to them than you?

    I have a question, how can you ignore ALL of the evidence provided to you? Are you now arguing for the sake of argument?

    When did I say that Obama and Democrats caused the 2007 recession alone? Bush was there, Bush policies were implemented with a Democrat controlled Congress when we went into recession so how did Bush alone cause the Dec. 2007-June 2009 recession? Didn't Congress have something to do with it? Wasn't Obama part of that Congress? Wasn't Obama running for the office of President at that time? Didn't he have influence at that time?

    Same question to you except my evidence comes from none partisan sites and not op ed pieces. Facts seem to confuse you. Percentage change is irrelevant when it is real dollars and real people that matter.
