    If Nimby has no idea how to find out what stimulus money was spent and when, that isn't my fault. And unlike you Liberals, I don't claim to be perfect. I made a posting mistake. And you took my mistake and rambled on incessantly to me about crap I not only am not posting about - I don't care about it. This thread was supposed to be a cheerleading session for Obama, something which attracted you in here. I'm not a sheep. I don't give credit to any President when it isn't due.

    Bitten off more than I can chew by asking one of the resident Obama lovers to articulate what he did specifically to create private sector jobs in 2015? Nice try.

    Now, go away, please. You are boring.
    No, you ARE sheep. You're sheep because you hate Obama for no valid reason. You're sheep because you believe that Republicans are actually fiscally conservative. You're sheep because you believe that Republicans have been good on national security. You're sheep because you believe the nonsense the GOP is feeding you daily and not basing your opinion on facts.

    My point for the thread? Showing the sheep for what they are. We are 7 years into Obama's presidency and on day one, Republicans have said over and over again that Obama owns this economy, that Obama can't point to the failures of Bush and say it was his fault we're in the hole we were in. Now that the tide has turned, you can't man up and give Obama his due.

    I'm still waiting for Obamacare to destroy America.
    A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.

    Much speculating & debating as to Presidential involvement in the economy can be done here, perhaps to never be resolved.

    But it cannot be denied the economy is in far better shape as Mr. Obama prepares to leave office, versus when Mr. Bush was leaving office.

    It would be more accurate to say that neo-liberal economic policy (free market/low tax/low barrier) has caused the dramatic erosion of manufacturing in most if not all of these "democratic cities" wherein those govts had next to no impact upon the national neo-liberal policies....but the understanding of these ideas would require more than what is being displayed by the simplistic rhetoric spewed consistently in your "arguments".

    For those who are interested, the IMF's September 2014 Finance & Development publication contained a piece describing Keynesian economics. The article provides a basic sketch.

    Democrats (I assume this is what you meant) also control a lot of the safest and most prosperous cities.

    Which of course gives him a higher % overall.

    Or does McConnell get credit for 2014 being the best year in 15 years for jobs because he's a ****in liar ?
    Well, in my opinion, the losses were driven because of all the things the democrats said they would do if elected. I sincerely think they scared the crap out of employers, entrepreneurs, etc.

    When promises are made that the tax payers have to pay for, the tax payers tighten their belts, spend less, and boom... Bye bye jobs because sales are down.

    Politicians writing the laws can not create jobs. They most certainly can destroy them.

    Sure, consumers tightened, not from real massive wealth declines...but from political rhetoric.

    Facking revisionism of the highest order.

    As you can see, you're hopelessly outmatched.
    And the debt has outpaced income. Now run the numbers on the % increase of the debt sense 1965 and do a comparison. And looking at your chart the debt has not only outpaced income it has now exceeded it. And you call that success. I argue NO debt is success. Only a liberal would call running deficits every year for the the last 100 yrs a success. And now the people are holding 18.2 trillion in debt and growing faster than ever. According to you that is success. And with all that deficit spending we have more poor, more on food stamps, more in section 8 housing, more blacks unemployed than ever before, the labor participation rate is at it's lowest point. Etc etc etc.

    You call this success, liberalism at its worst. This is what we got for dumping over 18 trillion of borrowed money into the economy. I call that a total failure. Under Obama the middle class is making less than when he took office. But under Obama the rich have gotten much richer. So much for liberal failed policies.

    In 2012, 46.5 million people were living in poverty in the United States—the largest number in the 54 years the Census has measured poverty. The poverty rate (the percentage of all people in the United States who were poor) also remained at high levels: 15% for all Americans and 21.8% for children under age 18.
