    Prompted by a bubble of epic proportion! Not a good idea to tout Bush43 economic policy as a measure of success. It costs you credibility.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Are you ever going to admit that the BEA does NOT support your "$2.8T" for Raygun?
    No, it is you that seems to have a problem, BEA does indeed support my 2.8 trillion as another poster acknowledged. You seem to have a problem reading graphs along with logic and common sense

    There was no budget for 2009 but there was one for 1981. Obama signed the 2009 budget which of course you want to blame on Bush. Guess when you sign a contract you don't accept responsibility but Reagan who didn't sign the 1981 budget is responsible for the deficit that year. Do you realize that you are making Gruber look and sound brilliant?

    Then what would you call touting Obama's economic numbers as a success? It is all relative and about context along with basic civics

    In his term, more than 10 million jobs have been created and the worst financial crisis since the 1930's has been averted.

    Nothing to write off on the basis of partisan rhetoric. This would have likely occurred regardless of the executive, as McCain/Romney wouldn't have reduced government spending or lowered taxes.

    That is your opinion not supported by BLS and further many of the jobs created are low paying and part time work. Guess that doesn't matter to you. Also highest number of Discouraged workers even after 7.6 trillion added to the debt and a massive stimulus program designed for shovel ready jobs

    You are using non-seasonally adjusted ANNUAL numbers and NOT seasonally adjusted QUARTERLY numbers to see when and what the numbers were closer to his taking office.

    You seem to have a problem with actual numbers and always want to apply stipulations to them. Not sure exactly what your problem is but regardless the numbers beat the hell out of Obama's and led to winning re-election with 49 states. Seems that the people then and the electorate today disagree with you.
