    Apparently your understanding is that deficits don't matter when there is a Republican in the white house.

    Actuallyit's basic economic results and understanding of the line items in the budget that tell me deficits at that level don't matter. Stop trolling. I grew up a strong Democrat but that party left me. It doesn't have anything to do with the D or the R but rather the ideology and the individual. Still waiting for you to list the cherry picked data you claim that I use. Reagan saw the big picture and it was Reagan leadership that got us out of the double dip Carter recession.

    LOL, yep, all of it comes from official govt. data and sites which in the liberal world you live in doesn't really matter. In your world apparently feelings trump reality.

    For all you people who want to give Obama credit for the economy, this thread proves that after 6 years he has done almost none of what he promised and yet still has supporters here, supporters who ignore the actual economic results and still after all the lies continue to buy the rhetoric. The question remains what is it about liberalism that creates this kind of loyalty.

    Well, of course it did. OPEC had nothing to do with the recession at all, as we all know. It was all due to having a Democrat in the WH, the high gas prices, the inflation, all of it.

    Which is why, now that we once again have a Democrat in the WH, gas prices have begun to soar and inflation is out of control. When will we ever learn. We keep attributing oil price ups and downs to supply and demand, when actually it has to do with the party in power.

    Don't remember the Carter energy plan I see. As for this being a D or R issue I am waiting for those here that make that claim to tell me what Obama has done that has led to the economic results his supporters want to give him credit for. Was it cutting the deficit in half from 1.2 trillion to 600 billion when his budget was rejected? Was it causing an average of 1 million discouraged workers a month not being counted in the official unemployment numbers? Was it the 842 billion stimulus for shovel ready jobs where the shovels never arrived and Obama admitted really don't exist? Or how about keeping your own doctor and plan with Obamacare?

    Since energy is based upon supply and demand I am sure that fracking had nothing to do with supply or the expansion of drilling on public land, oh wait, that drilling hasn't happened. Hmmm

    I have no idea what the first sentence means.
    The second is my point exactly: It's not a D or R issue at all.
    The Democrats claiming that Obama has brought us out of the recession are about as ridiculous as the detractors saying he's to blame for it. Equally absurd is blaming the recession and runaway inflation of the late '70s on Carter, and not on OPEC.

    Economic ups and downs largely are out of the control of the POTUS, regardless of whether he is a terrible, horrible, socialistic Democrat or a wonderful, conservative Republican. The biggest difference is that, when there is a Republican president, Republicans like to attribute any improvement to their party. Democrats, on the other hand, like to point out economic improvements when there is a Democrat in the Whitehouse. In reality, the winner of the Superbowl had about as much influence over such things as the price of gas, unemployment, and the growth of the GDP as does the winner of the presidential election.

    It was the Carter economic and foreign policy plans that created the OPEC reaction which led to gas lines, the high inflation and it was the fear of Reagan's foreign policy and leadership that brought OPEC back in line. Leadership does matter as does a pro growth economic policy. to say that economic ups and downs largely are out of control of the POTUS is probably partially true but was we have seen in a consumer driven economy the POTUS economic policies do have an effect as does their foreign policy decisions.

    49, 000 posts to your name and they all say pretty much the same thing.

    Democrat Bad.

    Republican Good.

    That's about it.
