    They'd have to win every single election and then they still need 2 Democrats to vote with them. I guess it's technically possible, but the odds are astronomical.

    Self-serving declarations by Bush and Cheney that they inherited the recession are just that, self-serving.

    On Tarp, it was fully paid back and economists conclude that it saved the banking system, so of course, you were against it. I also think you don't know the difference between Tarp and the American Recovery Act, which was fiscal stimulus.
    TARP has not been fully paid back. $424 billion has gone out, and $388 billion has been repaid as of July 2014.

    So, your point is that Bush, sworn in in late January, caused the recession? Hmmm, I wonder how many of those economists would agree with that. I figured you'd say that. Just a ridiculous response, but not unexpected. What, no comment on Obama's Trillion dollar deficits that followed? Have they been paid back? I think not.

    The ever increasing radicalization of the right becomes more and more obvious every day and now this poll clearly provides more evidence of the divide in America between the right and everyone else.

    65% of Americans reject the political tactic of impeachment but a full one-third of the citizenry are more that willing to go down that road. Nearly one in five simply want to use it to advance their own political objections and need no actual crimes for the process.
    Another false narrative in the making from the left. Boy are you guys desperate.

    The Bailout Scorecard
    Last update: Jul. 22, 2014

    Altogether, accounting for both the TARP and the Fannie and Freddie bailout, $611B has gone out the door—invested, loaned, or paid out—while $388B has been returned.

    The Treasury has been earning a return on most of the money invested or loaned. So far, it has earned $265B. When those revenues are taken into account, the government has realized a $41.7B profit as of Jul. 22, 2014.

    It tries to put to rest the meme that folks like you (partisan left) toss out about who much more radical politics is now.

    You certainly can try all you want.

    I'm glad you "love it" so much, you must love being wrong. And whose money do you think it is?
    Here's another flaw in your logic, working families go out and earn money, it belongs to them. Tell me, what does the federal government earn? What does it produce?
    Not even close to the real world. That's why you liberals believe what you believe, because you depend on the flawed logic of you leaders.
    What does the government produce? The FBI produces safety from drug smugglers, counterfeiters and other criminals;
    Food inspectors assure that our meat and vegetables are safe to eat;
    The military defends the country;
    The SSA sends our millions of pension checks to seniors, that keep them out of poverty;
    Medicare assures that seniors have insurance for medical access;
    Medicaid gives medical access to the poor;
    The federal courts prosecute criminals and adjudicate disputes;
    The Corp of Army Engineers devise infrastructure projects like dams;
    I could go on but point made.
