    Oh, something to chew on...
    I have no confirmed date but i was thinking, as workers become more efficient, and there's more mechanization would there be an expected rise in the natural unemployment level? By no means take this as excusing Obama's unemployment #s, i'm just wondering.

    This is the luddite fallacy. Do you really believe computers led to job losses in the 70's, 80's, and 90's?
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    What's not to demonize? Few presidents have ****ed this nation as royally as he did. It's not just me who feels this way; at several points during his presidency, he achieved what no other president on record ever accomplished -- a record low JAR of 19%.

    You can claim that all you want, it will never be true. That's why in polls taken, more people still blame Bush for the economy than Obama. That's why Obama was re-elected.

    It's beyond ludicrous to claim that Bush could totally wreck the economy as he did, and that he has no effect at all on the economy today. For example, the housing market still hasn't fully recovered. That was Bush's fault, not Obama's. The effects of that effect contruction. They effect manufacturing. They effect credit markets. The world didn't suddenly start on January 20th, 2009.

    You can deny reality all you wish, but the result of that is more of a reflection on you than it is on Obama.

    Your opinion noted as you continue to buy what the media tells you. I am waiting for exactly what President Bush did to hurt you or your family? You seem to believe that Bush had all that power to get us into this mess but Obama doesn't have the power to get us out of that mess. Obama was in the Senate that helped create the mess. Obama said he had the solutions to the problems but like so many you ignore the Obama results and still blame them on Bush

    You think Bush is destroying the consumer confidence today? you think Bush is destroying the incentive of small business today? You think Bush proposed penalizing wealth creation? You think the way to prosperity is to tax the producers in this country? It is obvious to me that you never managed anything in your life and have no concept of leadership. Your constant whining about Bush says a lot about you just like your ignoring the Obama results does the same thing.

    Sounds like your being a Bush apologist? It happened under Bush; it had nothing to do with Clinton. Reminiscent of someone else's bogus argument, isnt it??
    It's a simplistic argument, a simplistic conclusion to imply that everything we need to know about 9/11 and the sub-prime collapse happened on the day of their occurrence.

    I would chalk up conclusions like those to the lowest common denominator of Obama supporters. We have a few here that actually think that the sub-prime debacle started post 2004. Yes I know, they're reaaally stupid folks, but they support Obama so what are you gonna do ?

    Now if you want to get into the details of each occurrence instead of taking the intellectual lazy road of "it happened on his watch therefore..." then I'm all ears....eyes.

    Well, outsourcing allows for an increase in skilled employment, which of course pays better and is far more "productive".

    Sorry, my sarcasm wasn't obvious enough(i mean that sincerely)
    I was point out the fallacy of how "what Bush did has no bearing on our economic situation"

    Bush presided over the greatest decrease in net wealth this country has witnessed since the Great Depression. In constant dollar terms (factoring for inflation), households still have not recovered. Any idea how much this damages confidence?

The labor force increased over 10 million people during the first 7 years of the Bush term and there was record tax revenue generated to the treasury all with those tax cuts. During the first 7 years of Bush the deficit was never over a trillion dollars and the states had more revenue thus they expanded their public sector employment.

    You and Sheik have very selective memories as you try to defend the indefensible. It really is a shame that you have so much invested in demonizing Bush that you cannot see what Obama is doing to this country. Why won't you answer the question as to why? Is the Obama economic policy something you really support?
    The fact is that your Govenor Perry received $6 billion from ARRA.
