    Obama had trillion dollar deficits each year in office for those numbers and there are two million less working today than when the recession began. If you spend 842 billion dollars on a stimulus program and get these numbers you would be fired and deserved to be fired.

    In addition there is population growth but stagnant economic growth

    Well, than you've miss read twice today. Three times is you count the Kaboom when someone else misread.

    But I have no trouble with you joining in. But when your response seems to be to something else, and you say you were joking, well one has to question what you're talking about.

    Do you take credit for any Bush numbers that are bad? Or is that any bad numbers that are Bush? Can you really show that a Feb. 2007 and on Dem. Congress without a filibuster-proof Senate could cause all that damage?

    You'd have a trillion dollar deficit in your first real budget, your second full year, if the last guy lost 4.4 million jobs for ya in his last 6 months.

    I agree that we have well over 2.5 million more private sector jobs with few dips than we did at the beginning of your recession. Too bad we had to have close to a million public sector jobs needlessly choked out.

The only compassion generated was for the politicians who bought votes.
    Some D's are still like that. Jessie Jackson, the felon, is a prime example. Hard to argue on the people's behalf when we see scum like that getting reelected by a wide margin.

    You're just not that clever Joe...sorry....nite now.

    Not trying to be. I just want you to address what is actually said. I don't think it's too much to ask.

    But sleep well.

    Oregon and wacky cults seem to go together.

    On reason I don;t much mind the eavesdropping is that we should give people rope until they start talking about blowing stuff up or shooting people dead. My understanding is that the Fort Hood nut, an American born Citizen, was talking crazy stuff long before he went off. I'm not sure about the brothers Tsanaev. If there were warning signs before the Marathon bombing, I am not aware of them. Either way, if NSA wants to read my mail sniffing for bomb plots, of I'm keeping in touch with crazies in Yemen or speaking with others who are, then I'm cool with it.
