    Create the stawman, then slay it.

    Its not about "getting us out" of this. Its about stopping the bleeding, and getting us on the road to recovery. As in "recovery summer", promise before, but now 0-3.

    Obama has failed. Miserably so. Man-up libs. He was the wrong choice from day one.

    That explains it. No matter what good Obama has done you will say he is a failure. That doesn't work with most people, they want someone who cares about America not that they lost an election.
    By wishing for Obama's failure you have wished for us all to fail. It has not helped and in Washington it has been disasterous. A bill to create a million jobs have been blocked in the House since last fall. It is disgraceful. Congress has never had such a low approval rating. I hope you will change your tune in Obama's 2nd term. Romney lost when he failed to release his tax returns.

    Sorry but I don't really consider it cherry picking because of the financial meltdown the credit markets were frozen and that makes it virtually impossible for companies to hire anyone. The financial institutions were given all that TARP money, but refused to lend it to anyone. On Sept 24, 2008 President Bush gave an address from the White House and told the nation how dire the situation was:

    The GOP doesn't care what they do to win; it's the ends that justifies the means with them.

    All you care about is propping up your beliefs, otherwise you would use the TOTAL job figures, instead of the ones that try and deceive people.

    It is 'cherry picking' though.

    Cherry picking, suppressing evidence, or the fallacy of incomplete evidence is the act of pointing to individual cases or data that seem to confirm a particular position, while ignoring a significant portion of related cases or data that may contradict that position. It is a kind of fallacy of selective attention, the most common example of which is the confirmation bias. Cherry picking may be committed unintentionally.

    Oh, is that why during the 1920/21 depression, the government massively cut spending and tax rates - but still it ended less then 30 months after it began? With both the unemployment rate and the DOW reaching near per-crash levels within 3 1/2 years of the depression's beginning...all while the national debt shrank.

    'Harding believed the federal government should be fiscally managed similar to the private sector having campaigned "Less government in business and more business in government."[116] "Harding was true to his word, carrying on budget cuts that had begun under a debilitated Woodrow Wilson. Federal spending declined from $6.3 billion in 1920 to $5 billion in 1921 and $3.3 billion in 1922.'

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warren_Harding

    Whereas the Great Depression and it's massive spending under Hoover and FDR resulted in a decade long economic mess where unemployment took over ten years to reach near per-crash levels and the DOW took 25! Oh, and the national debt skyrocketed.


    There have been recessions in America every 6 years (on average) since it's birth. The vast majority of them ended without government's doing anything.

    Recessions end due to the private sector, not the government.

    So government jobs don't count? OK...remind me again who President Obama works for...the GOVERNMENT...
    doesn't count indeed...
    "The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure" - 2006 Senator Obama...leadership failure indeed!
