    I wish you guys could get on the same page.
    Why did you hire Obama if you didn't do it to create better results than the economy before the recession began? Do you think the population hasn't grown since 2007? Do you believe that 144 million working Americans vs 146 million working Americans is a good economic performance? Do you have such low personal expectations as apparently you have in political expectations?

    Weird, Wall Street reacted negatively to the fed hinting at slowing QE, but somehow you think doing this will improve the job market?

    Oh, we can all review how we thought the economy would end up post Bush recession aftermath, the point is where we are once the dust settled.....which is that we are much better off now....especially in comparison to other countries following the path you wanted.


    Do you think the population hasn't grown since 2007?
    What a moronic question, "has the US population increased?" FFS!



    Do you believe that 144 million working Americans vs 146 million working Americans is a good economic performance?
    Context free statements, Con. Since the bottoming of employment at the end of '09, we are way up.


    Do you have such low personal expectations as apparently you have in political expectations?
    I have zero expectations in your ability to have an honest debate.

    You really do not understand our economy at all. We are basically a private sector economy which makes us different than most other countries and it is the private sector that is making us better in spite of Obama and his anti private sector economic policies. You seem to think things are better than they were under Bush when the reality is you seem to think that Bush was in office only 2008.

    Having an honest debate has to begin with understanding basic economic data which you have the inability to do. You seem to believe that Bush created the economic mess Obama inherited by himself and then totally ignore Obama's inability to generate the economic results to create incentive for the private sector to grow jobs and the economy. Were it not for govt. spending the GDP growth would be much lower than 1.8% which it was first quarter this year. The numbers don't lie in that there are 2 million less employed today than when the recession started and the 6 trillion added to the debt simply has gotten us back to the numbers Obama inherited.

    When will you recognize that you made a mistake in voting for Obama?

    wall street reacts positively to all kinds of policies that don't work long term. the cocaine addict also reacts negatively when there is no coke to be found.

    Um, the economy is a heart attack victim still in need of anti-clotting IV drip, not an addict looking for a line.

    I see you are succumbing to poor analogies instead of addressing my point.....how in the world would withdrawing QE improve the job market? Do you honestly believe that tightening the credit market will create more investment?

    Do you realize that all that govt spending has created another 6 trillion added to the debt and that when interest rates rise the debt service will rise from the fourth largest budget item to third or second? You see actual results don't really matter to you because you cannot see how those results affect your family nor do you care how they affect others.

    The results speak for themselves.

    It won't but how long do you think that Obama can support the printing of money while promoting anti growth private sector policies? Anti growth economic policies such as Obamacare, higher taxes, more regulations in conjunction with more money do not create permanent positive job creation.

    Um, the bond vigilantes have been threatening the dreaded interest rate monsters for how many years now.......and yet what happens to those sold US bonds as these (practically non-existent) interest rate increases happen? Why the values decrease.....funny that.
