The fact also remains that we were coming out of recession when Obama took office and going into recession when Reagan took office.

    The measurement as to the severity of a recession is the effect on the American people. Since there was no inflation, low interest rates working Americans weren't affected nearly as much as the high interest rates and inflation of the 81-82 recession topped off by high unemployment.

    You are either a leftwing ideologue or playing a game here. Which is it?

    By the way judging Bush on one year of his Presidency is what liberals love to do but the reality is the entirety kicks Obama's ass
    Suuuuure. If you ignore the fact that things got worse under Bush from what he inherited while things have gotten better under Obama from the mess he inherited.

No bills in the Senate got an up or down vote unless Democrats voted to stop debate on the bill (Yes Democrats had plenty of power, even though they were the minority party in the senate at the time). Democrats had no intention of stopping debate of the bill. This happens ALL the time in the Senate. With no chance at getting 60 votes on the bill because of Democrat opposition, the bill was pulled (twice).

    Either you don't understand how the Senate works, or you're a liar. I don't care which.
    Holy ****ing ****!

    The irony of this post is astonishing.

    Just so ya know ... there is no cloture vote on bills that are not fillibustered. There was no cloture vote on either of those bills because Democrats didn't filibuster either one of them. They didn't have to -- Republican leadership in the Senate didn't send either bill to the floor for a full vote by the Senate.

    Your opinion noted as I am sure your parents didn't have any problem at all paying the high interest rates during that period of time. Sounds like you are part of that liberal elite who talks about compassion but never shows any compassion.

    Certainly leadership isn't something you understand at all. Tell the millions of Americans unemployed/under employed/discouraged, the millions on food stamps or other taxpayer funded welfare programs, the taxpayers that are actually paying the debt service on the addition 6 trillion that Obama has added, those small business owners and contract workers not counted as being unemployed? Yes, things are better in the comfort of your own home where you are out of touch with reality.

    It was, which is why one of the first things he did in office was to pass a stimulus bill.

    Yes, he did, one that failed but added to the debt and the Democrat power based, the unions.

    The same logic would apply in the Senate. Whips know how many votes they need and usually how many they have. It was not brought to a vote due to the possibility of charges of racism from the dems. So you get left with 100% dems against and 10% reps against and you want to blame the reps? The opposition party must bear some blame for what they block. Somehow liberals only understand that when republicans do it, not when liberals do it. This was a fully liberal supported social engineering project, aided and abetted by establishment morons within the republican party.

    The stimulus was a complete joke as it was focused solely on temporary measures and nothing that would or could have stimulated any long term growth in the economy...
    I don't often change my signature, but this was just too over the top to let anyone forget with what this country is up against...

    It's not my opinion, it't the hard cold numbers which determine it...

    Reagan: -1.5% GDP
    Bush: -4.7% GDP

    Sorry, but your numbers are skewed and out of context as usual nor do your numbers matter to actual people hurt by the economyu. You were too yound and as usual you buy what you are told failing to even do basic research. I feel sorry for people like you
