He also threw a blind eye at all the fraud in the mortgage industry as worthless sub-prime portfolios were sold off to foreign investors. Oh, and on top of all that, there was also the whole war-thing, which buried new technologies in that Top Secret underworld again. In the end, all of that bit him in the ass.
    OMG...

    You are so wrong.

    I know you don't promise to take money away from others and not expect them to protect themselves. Economies shrink this way. Not expand.

    I know that the technological progress between what CMP did, and the Y2K scare generated huge profits and revenues to the government, while employing so many more people in high paying jobs than normal.

    Conservative Logic: Tripling debt,good; adding less than 50% to a debt, bad. What's the difference? THe tripling occurred under the Conservative's idol: Ron-Ron; while the slight increase is happening under a Democrat with a funny sounding name.
    Lady, you really have a comprehension as well as a basic understanding o economics problem. I hope you aren't handling your own personal finances. You obviously don't understand the difference between actual dollars and percentage change. Have you noticed you aren't getting a lot of support here? Ask anyone you know that if 1.7 trillion dollars in 8 years is worse than 6.4 trillion in 5 and after the laughing stops let me know the answer?

    So, that must mean Obama's debt is good. Right?
    Is that right? how did that increase in revenue affect the debt?

    Saying the little blip in 80 was worse than the Bush Recession of 2007 is ridiculous. If you honestly believe it, then you have demonstrated to us your complete and total ignorance.
    Tell me your personal experience with the Reagan recession of 81-82? Numbers certainly aren't your friend here and never will be. How do you know this recession was worse? Do you own a home? What interest rates are you being charged now vs. then? How about your credit interest then vs. now? Calamity. you really don't have a clue as to what you are talking about, this is embarrassing.

    Let's see, Obama 6.4 trillion in 5 years =1.3 trillion per year

    Bush 4.9 trillion in 8 years-600 billion per year, looks like doubling the yearly debt. How do those numbers grab you?

    You need to educate yourself.
    Really is a shame, isn't it? educate herself? Now there is a novel idea.

    I wonder how many other people either wrote in Ron Paul on the ballot, or didn't vote after than serious snafu by the RNC.
    Primaries are becoming so rigged its insane. The establishment seems to get the candidate they want almost every time. Although Obama kind of threw a wrench in that for Hillary.

    Actually its 4. 7 million jobs but Republicans will tell you he hasn't created jobs. Also my concern is Republicans mantra that Government doesn't create jobs but yet you give Reagan credit? Please tell me how that works.
    Tripling the debt he inherited of 10.6 trillion dollars would put the debt at over 30 trillion which is double our current GDP. He would have to do a lot better than 17 million jobs. You simply haven't any idea what you are talking about. It isn't the President's job to create jobs, but it is his job to create the economic environment for the private sector to create those jobs and things like demonizing the wealth creators and Obamacare don't do that.
