    War always increases employment. We haven't had a war that hasn't increased employment.

    Of course Bush and Obama should have taken the hit and cut the budget. They didn't and so we are still stumbling along.
    When the recession began in December 2007 there were 146.3 million working Americans and today that is 144.2. that speaks volumes as you have a growing population and declining number of Americans working. It is easier becoming dependent on the taxpayers than it is actually working in today's environment and that is a sad state of affairs and an example of liberal successes.

    I wonder if any liberal would honestly answer why the debt clock has stopped since I think May.....? Oh God....What am I thinking....Ofcourse they wouldn't....

    Debt clock stopped? That's not possible, this is America, the inventors of the phrase "Charge it". And now a Liberal has answered you.

    Yeah, I know that, you know that....

    The U.S. national debt for the past 70 days has been stuck at exactly $16,699,396,000,000, CNSNews.com reports, citing the Daily Treasury Statement for July 26.

    “That is approximately $25 million below the legal limit of $16,699,421,095,673.60 that Congress has imposed on the debt,” the report notes.

    Fed debt subject to the legal limits imposed by Congress first hit the $16.7B mark on May 17. The national debt has for every business day since then been exactly $16,699,396,000,000.00.

    “If the debt had increased by even $30 million at any time during those 70 days, it would have exceeded the statutory limit,” the report conceded.

    However, according to the Treasury, the debt hasn’t budged an inch. It has been stuck at exactly $16,699,396,000,000:

    So, kinda begs the question that if you don't believe the administration on the debt clock, the administration, you know, the most transparent administration in history? Then how can you trust any of their numbers?

    The gestation period is relatively long in these things and can take an easy decade to mature. Greenspan fed the dot.com bubble with cheap money, while Clinton did not reduce government spending enough during the boom. That is the origin of the present problem.

    Sorry, don't buy it, the problem today is lack of leadership and a very poor economic plan. The stimulus failed because it did nothing to promote the private sector growth, Obamacare is a job killer, and our vacationing/golf playing President doesn't have the leadership skills to bring the two parties together. There was no war in 81-82 during a worse recession than this one but Reagan leadership and positive attitude brought us out of it quickly and created 17 million jobs.

    What you are seeing today is what happens when people think with their hearts and elect a totally unqualified community agitator to the highest office in the land. This "do as I say, not as I do" President is incompetent and a disaster.
