    You can't just spout nonsense. Here are the facts:

    Obama budget defeated 99-0 in Senate - Washington Times
    Bush did have the worst job creation record in modern history, wages fell too. But that is just a typical for a Republican President, who as a group have created HALF as many jobs as Dems while in office.
    Romney promises to be even worse than Bush, who boosted the number of Govt. jobs instead of cutitng them as Mitt wants.

    The GOP should think of starting a circus with all the "performers" thay have in Washington. P.T. Barnum has nothing on them.

    The problems of America's economy are structural not cyclic. The first step in dealing with any problem is to stop lying to one's self about the nature of the problem.

    Really? So you think that home construction is a dead industry forever? How do you figure that? How exactly is the subprime housing bubble not cyclic?

    notice how the facts work against your position
    Are you serious? The spending keeps on happening. What has been stymied is any hope of reducing the spending...a direct result of Senate obstruction.

    Actually, I've never referred to any $5 trillion in this thread. But since you asked, it's come from the laws jammed through Congress when the Democrats enjoyed their majority.

    and as we know, the spending could not happen but for the approval of the GOP dominated house of representatives

    sigh...

    It takes two...or, in this case, three...to tango. Do you get my drift?

    There's no way you can lay blame for government spending on the current GOP-controlled House. They've been trying for almost two years to reduce spending.

    glad you are getting closer to acknowledging the GOP's complicity in the deficit spending

    The choice was either go along with the spending or the dems would shut the government and the media would blame the gop.

    Sad thing is, as the country continues to be mired in this mess, and many millions are adversely effected political hacks rejoice when they score some silly point. No wonder younger generation says politics is all BS and doesn't bother to vote for either sorry excuse for a presidential candidate.
