    You couldn't possibly find a more bias writer to feed your debunked ideology?

    Notice how many are bringing statistics to the argument while you bring op editorials?

    Living in your sheltered bubble while digging up confirmation bias hackery is the ultimate dodge noted.

    You gotta follow the dots...and the recession starts on bushes watch but I can see why you want to avoid the mere mention of his name.

    Would it make you feel better if, when following my dots, that lead me back to the President whose economic policies of starting unfunded wars, combined with ill-advised tax cuts during said wars who started the worst recession since his soul mate Herbert Hoover was President?

    If that is the case i would be more than happy to refer to bush as "the president who got the least votes and still served two terms".
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    I looked up your Truman quote in your sig. It's even a better quote when put in a fuller context:

    “Republicans approve of the American farmer, but they are willing to help him go broke. They stand four-square for the American home--but not for housing. They are strong for labor--but they are stronger for restricting labor's rights. They favor minimum wage--the smaller the minimum wage the better. They endorse educational opportunity for all--but they won't spend money for teachers or for schools. They think modern medical care and hospitals are fine--for people who can afford them. They consider electrical power a great blessing--but only when the private power companies get their rake-off. They think American standard of living is a fine thing--so long as it doesn't spread to all the people. And they admire of Government of the United States so much that they would like to buy it.”

    -- Harry Truman

    I see... so are publicly admitting that single paragraph is out of your reach? That's rather interesting.

    there really should be a requirement that one have at least a higher single digit iq to register on DP wouldn't you think?

    "Democrats are the party of handouts. They want to buy votes by promising people things--healthcare, retirement, government job, free tuition--that they themselves don't have to pay for. It is enslaving the poor and minorities to a lifetime of government dependency, which serves none but those they continually re-elect. They believe deficits don't matter, lest they should think beyond their next re-election. And finally, they seek to characterize America's historic achievement as not the achievement of the people--"you didn't build that"--but rather as their achievement, creating through government all that is good in our country."

    If mine is rubbish so is yours.

    Which Democrat was it again who first said that deficits don't matter?
    "Donald Trump is a phony, a fraud... [he's] playing the American public for suckers." Mitt Romney
