    You are too much.
    You are blaming Obama's problems on Bush three years later. Three years after the Bush economic policy was in place the economy was booming.

    2) "Economy Made Few Gains in Bush Years", declared the Washington Post earlier this week. And while the story grudgingly acknowledged the 52-straight months of job growth, it dismissed any economic gains as the ephemeral product of the housing bubble and wild-spending consumers. Except ... that worker productivity -- the most important long-term indicator of the core health and competitiveness of an economy -- has risen at a really impressive 2.6 annual rate during the Bush years vs. 2.0 percent for Clinton and 1.6 percent for Reagan. (That factoid from the Wall Street Journal.) This is important stuff. It's one big reason why the World Economic Forum says the U.S. has the most competitive economy in the world. The economic rebound after the pro-growth 2003 tax cuts was no mirage.

    Irrelevant. the question posed is which progressive idea is regressive. The expanding welfare state the cradle to grave society creates a dependent class that is unmotivated to rise out of the free handouts. This is a spawn of "progressive" ideals.

    folks can only collect welfare for 5 years. how exactly does this promote cradle-to-grave dependency?

    You have yet to prove Welfare is regressive or that it was a instituted by and supported by Democrats alone.

    Also, unless a person is disabled, they cannot remain on welfare longer than 2 years. Hardly, cradle to grave.


    You failed to answer my last question as well, which GOP candidate is proposing to end welfare???

    "Only" 5 years?

    That pretty much sums up the dependent class attitude right there.

    It's a red herring and irrelevant.

    Yes, I'm pointing out the ridiculous irony of you steadfastly refusing to admit that Obama inherited an absolute hellish economy from Bush while you argue that Bush inherited a recession from Clinton. Amazing hypocrisy.

    For my part, I never denied that Bush inherited a recession from Clinton. That's obvious, just as it's obvious that Obama inherited one from Bush. Of course the one Obama inherited was magnitudes worse, and Obama had far fewer tools at his disposal because Bush had already cut taxes and doubled the national debt.
