    People could correct your spelling and you'd call them liberals. It's pathetic.

    unbelievable, the recession began in December 2007, Obama took office in January 2009 with the country in recession, so who is right.
    He is right that the NBER didn't declare the recession until after that.

    You are right that it began in 2007 and people were quite aware of it.

    I already said that. What's your problem? Why are you so terrified of having a normal, adult conversation that involves you possibly being wrong about a fact, or a nuance, or anything whatsoever? Why do you seem so determined for every little detail about conservatism and those who call themselves conservatives to be 100% infallible? You're not here to discuss, just to defend. You're like a defense lawyer for conservatism - you concede nothing, you put every fact in a light that favors your client, and when you're proven wrong, you simply switch to a new tactic.

    The recession was already declared.
    No, it was not. Not until Dec. 1, 2008. Everyone knew we were in one, but it wasn't officially declared until then. This is a minor point too, and you are correct about the important point - that everyone knew there was a recession and an extreme financial crisis long before that. But you can't let go of anything. It's why you get into these long, ridiculous threads where you accuse everyone else of being partisan, when you're the most partisan one here.

    ....are you arguing that in November of 2008 we were not in a financial collapse? are you arguing that the public was too stupid to realize it? Or are you arguing that, as a candidate, Obama was too stupid to capitalize on it?

    Seems like President Obama sure thought he was elected for a particular reason:

    That's a lie, there aren't 24 million underemployed.

    No, that's accurate. Unemployed + underemployed = 24 million.

    I articulated my rebuttal clearly. What you ask was not what I said.
