That said, the Treasury Dept, BLS and BEA numbers are facts, which taken out of context, as you continually do, mean nothing. You are more than happy to tell us that change in the federal debt between Jan 20, 2009 and today... we can all look it up. Attributing that change to Obama, however, has no basis as you never explain what he has done to make that debt happen. While arguments deal with causation, yours deals with circumstance. Citing the change in debt and declaring it Obama's fault is about as meaningful analysis as going to the Doctor with a list a symptoms validate your symptom; or calling a structural engineer into analyze a collapsed building and having him declare it a mess or attributing to the night watchman, because the night watchman was the only one in the building.... its NON analysis; its meaningless.
So, I will give you another shot. I have told you that Bush started with essentially a balanced budget and delivered $1.1T running deficits (which he did; my cite posted numerous times, happy to post again, if you need). I then explained how those deficits were racked up: 1) tax cuts which cut income tax revenue, which racked up $2T of the debt and $200B of annual deficit; 2) wars and related occupations which cost $1.5T to $4.0T depending on how you look at it and 3) an unfunded expansion of Medicare (Part D), which added about $50B annually to the deficit. This was all compounded by a recession that took $400B out tax revenues and added $100B in unemployment (each, of which, have evaporated during the Obama administration).... That was my argument of how GW Bush screwed up the economy. BTW, I have supported, numerous times each of these assertions and can do so again, if necessary.
Now, you have thrown out the rather absurd proposition that Bush did not screw up the economy; Obama did. May I present that post where you make this absurd statement:
Results do not speak for themselves.... you have to link the facts to the "crime" and show us how Obama is responsible for the results.... Now, here is your chance to come up with robo post #5.... prove that point. Tell us all, exactly how Obama screwed up the economy. And, since your assertion was a complex one that says Bush DID NOT screw up the economy, your proof must include substantiation that Bush delivered Obama a sound economy. I don't know why I am wasting my time with this post as I don't believe you are capable of such a proof.... the good Dr. Conservative will once again tell us the symptoms and be totally unable to identify the disease nor explain how it got out of control..... But, give it a try.
