    Re: Five years in, Obama and Bush poll numbers nearly identical

    Who inspired all this unhinged spending - or better yet forced banks to lend this money? Clinton..... You know what banks did? fire back with high interest rates -- people wanted the free money forced on them and now our economy sucks...

    Clinton wasn't trying to subsidize the people with tax money he was trying to force the banks to subsidize people...

    Progressives like to point to Clintons deficit - well he only made the banks subsidize the nation.......... Problem is that many didn't pay off their debt.

    If it really matters so much republicans let him do it....

    There never was a ****ing surplus, stop pushing your fancies on the other members. Keep them at Disney.

    That's hilarious. These figures are a matter of historical record and have nothing to do with projections that were made at the time. You have exactly zero clue what you're talking about here.

    I find it amazing how everyone over 40 acts like they have absolutely nothing to do with this...

    You left young people with a handful of **** and brainwash them to believe it's gold ****...

    We always have surpluses during a recession.

    As if we were actually in a recessionary period for the years mentioned. FY 99 and '00 enjoyed growth of over 4 percent per year and fiscal surpluses to boot. Quit while you're behind.

    Ok, so you didn't agree with what Bush did, and his poll numbers were justified in your eyes, I understand, and I agree that Obama's numbers are of his own making, even though you come dangerously close to deflecting away from that by trying to make the thread about Iraq, Obama is the president now, and he has worse approval ratings at this point than Bush had at this point...Says a lot don't you think?
