    I wonder and will always wonder what it is about liberalism that creates this kind of loyalty and removes the ability to think from so many? In addition why do so many liberals have a problem with getting the actual results and cannot admit when they are wrong

    Poverty Plagues Obama

    We would have been trillions more in debt no matter who won the election. In case you missed it, Bush drove up our deficits to over a trillion dollars and wrecked the economy before crawling out of office.

    Oh, and by the way, Reagan started the Lifeline program to hand out phones to the needy. So they're really ReaganPhones, not ObamaPhones.

    That number increases from 10 million to 22 million under Bush -- you applaud Bush

    That number decreases under Obama from 22 million to 21 million -- you call Obama one of the worst presidents in history.

    Yep, You're a Conservative all right.

    Fact, 500,000 dropped out of the labor force last month, fact there are 143 million Americans employed today whereas there were 146 million employed when the recession began. By all measureable results Obama is a disaster. 155 million in the labor force today and 143 million employed. In December 2007 there were 153 million in the labor force and 146 million employed. Reality is a bitch, isn't it?

    Here's a list of presidents, along with the level of increase, or decrease, of the U3 unemployment rate after 50 months in office... Unemployment has not increased for any Democrat president and only 1 Republican president lowered it.



    Clinton -2.1 -29%
    Johnson -2.0 -35%
    Kennedy** -1.2 -14%
    Reagan -0.3 -4%
    Obama -0.2 -3%
    Carter*** 0.0 0%
    Eisenhower +0.8 +28%
    Bush +1.0 +24%
    Nixon +1.5 +44%
    GHW Bush*** +1.9 +35%
    Ford* +2.0 +36%

    * = in office 29 months

    ** = in office 34 months

    *** = in office 48 months

    You know, if you have to publicly lie to defend an ideology or a President, your'e still left with a crappy ideology and/or President.

    Obama's either incompetent or he's purposely destroting the economy. Its your choice.

    EVERY thing hes done with the exception of killing Bin Laden has been a failure. And he wouldn't have gotten ro him if not for Bush's enhanced interrogation programs.

    You mean reality like you dishonestly inflating the U6 number from 21 million to 22 million? Or did you mean the reality of you ridiculously complain about Obama lowering that number from Bush, who himself more than foubled it?

    Oh, and by the way, the trend of a declining workforce began when Bush took office. But that's Obama's fault too, right?

    It wasn't " Bush" who left Obama with anything.

    Educate yourself on the causes of the sub-prime debacle before making a generic blanket statement .

    And yet, as that chart shows, Obama is doing a better job with umemployment than every Republican president except for Reagan. Were all those Republican presidents purposefully destroying the economy?

    Umm, then why did Bush take credit for it?
