    Dot Com bubble is no where near what happened during financial collapse of 2008. Total failure of banks and the housing bubble is no where near the dot com bubble. The total failure of the banks and housing bubble was WAY more catastrophic than the dot com bubble.
    I'd have to agree here. We haven't seen something this dramatic since the Great Depression, or quite possibly the damage done to South Korea's economy. Honestly, IMO that's the most comparable example in recent history in the context of a serious liquidity crunch. The dot com more or less annihilated trillions in paper wealth where as the financial near collapse erased entire banks. That said, arguing that Bush had it easy is dishonest when you look at the sheer amount of wealth that was lost at the time. Follow that up with 9/11 and Bush had a pretty awful economy on his hands. My biggest peeve with Bush is that he kept debt financed spending going after the recession really ended and employment bounced back. That's a betrayal of all responsible economic theories.

    Wait a minute... Conservatives want to blame Obama for poor job creation? I thought tax breaks for the rich, and the free market created jobs (so say conservatives) not the President...

    Can't say that I'm surprised. If you break a shoe-lace... blame obama. If you run out of toothpaste... blame obama. Hell, if your finger breaks through the toilet paper... blame obama.

    First of all, there are NO "People like me". I'm one of a kind.

    Second of all, without Obama and his Democratic-controlled government we would already be much better off than we are right now because we wouldn't have the economy-depressing spectre of Obamacare hanging over our heads.

    Well, actually you did indeed say exactly that...I realize that you thought that enough time had passed, and enough pages of posting had past to allow you to lie, but here are your own words....

    Hopefully not for long. Would love to see that monstrosity struck down. Bet we would see hiring then.

    Fortunately, more and more people just give up trying to find work each month. That's the sign of a very healthy economy. Obamanomics !!!

    Where are all the jobs the GOP promised after the 2010 election? Odd once they took over they stopped talking about jobs and turned their attention to the debt ceiling...wonder why that was...hmmmm...
