    Why is it so hard for you to just pick one policy? Honestly. Pick on that you think I'm sooooo far off base other than the S&P downgrade I hope because that would just be circular... Pick one and we'll discuss it.

    Yes but those positive numbers were negated by the massive amount of spending done by Obama and his bail out programs. Look at the unemployment rate during the same period and then tell me the economy was in good shape.

    If the FICA taxes had not funded our unfunded wars and other general fund spending, you might have a point. Why do you think they say that SS is short by trillions? Up until just recently, SS has taken in more money than it paid out in benefits, where do you think those trillions went to?

    Actually you are putting quotes around things I didn't say. You can't honestly believe that other people can't just scroll up a couple of posts where I replied DIRECTLY TO YOU and asked you specific questions that you are obviously ignoring. Why is it so hard for you to answer the questions (they are the lines of text with the "?" at the end) that I clearly asked you?

    Start with post #1775. I make specific mention of the word policy there and you just simply ignored it. Twice.

    Did you see the spending before he got into office? It was just as bad. As I showed earlier, GWB spend 2.7 trillion in his last 3 years, and Obama spent a projected 3 trillion in his first. Are you going to split hairs over that? Also, as part of Keynesian economics, he is doing exactly what he should, and may have not only ended the recession early, but has perhaps staved off a double dip. But you clearly have no idea what any of that means.

    *Edit:

    And Obama has clearly shown that he is willing to negotiate on spending cuts.

    Link to it. Being that I'm bouncing around reading various threads I honestly don't know what post you made that you are referring to.

    For Gods sake, pick something to discuss other than me and how you don't like me and/or librulz.

    No getting all bent out of shape over an obvious joke is what is irrelevant. You don't seem to chime in when people are debating anything intelligent, yet you want to come in here ready to go to war with me over something silly? I assure you you are not equipped for battle.

    I beg to differ with the bolded part. As Paul Krugman has noted, he's half-assed his attempts. He should have done more.

    Well, by that I just mean keeping taxes low and deficit spending during a recession. Perhaps he should have spent more, but considering the deficit he inherited and the witch hunt he faced the day he took office, that would have been nearly impossible.

    So what does that have to do with Obama's ability to correct and/or better the situation? He has done nothing of the sort and in fact made things worse. The increase in the GDP means nothing when it compares to the decrease in the value of our dollar.

    Obama has shown that he is clearly not willing to negotiate. He simply passes blame for his failures and then presents another half assed bill with the sole aim of winning voters and with little understanding of actually solving the real problem.
