    I have more criticisms of LBJ than merely that. My fathers SS account when he retired at 62 was 87K, he's now 91, his account long since expired. There's lots of reasons why I'm working today for people long retired, and you have learned nothing in your 80 years except that democrats, all, are children of the devil. You should change your avatar. Btw, you said you were done discussing this with me a dozen posts ago.

    Shows how little you know, first I am not nearly as old as you believe as I told you I was in my early to mid 40's during the Reagan term so somehow that puts me at 80 now. From what I have seen that is basic liberal math even though you refuse to admit who you are. Second, I grew up a staunch JFK Democrat and in fact played him in my Civics class during the 1960 election cycle as it wasn't a problem the to be a conservative Democrat. Three, the Democrat Party of Pelosi, Reid, and Obama left me a long time ago. Fourth you have no concept of leadership and personal responsibility. There are reasons that the results and numbers today show this to be a very severe recession and maybe one of our worst and that reason starts with lack of leadership along with poor economic policies.

    You don't seem to be able to comprehend the role of the Federal Govt. and you look at the 1.7 trillion dollar debt of Reagan's without looking at the results generated from that debt because you fail to recognize the return on investment. Had Reagan not generated the results, not created a peace dividend, not created 17 million jobs, not restored honor and respect around the world for this country then you would be right about tripling the debt. Unfortunately for you, that isn't the case and the majority in this country got it which is why Reagan won 49 states in 1984 and showed the leadership to bring us out of a worse recession than this one. Liberals cannot accept that because they look at the results today and numbers today while comparing them to those in the 81-82 recession while ignoring the policies that generated the numbers today and then.

    I unlike you understand leadership and economic policies

    just when I'm about to think you can't get post anything more ridiculous than you already have you go and prove you can still get more ridiculous. How you can allow yourself to think that a bailout (which I'm sure you criticized even thought it was great because Bush's had to have it to cover his ass for the disaster he let fester and eventually explode but as soon as Obama came into office attacked and blamed it all on him) can be added to the GDP ("the monetary value of all the finished goods and services produced within a country's borders in a specific time period") when a) it was borrowed money that initially added to the whopping (but not record) deficit of Obama's first deficit ($1.2T 2010 FY) but has all but something like $32B paid back (and that was what I remember from a couple of years ago and may have ended up being even less than that) is beyond rational understanding. Only a mind so steeped in the mendacity of the rightwing pukefunnel of lies could entertain such perversion of our language. Of course, you've also treated us to that even greater orwellian doublespeak gem of Reagan's "peace dividend" otherwise known as his $1.9T additional debt pile up (which ended up being $3.4T by the end of his successor and co-conspirator, BushI).

    In 2006 Republcans controlled both houses of Congress and the Presidency and you're trying to tell us the minority of dems stopped them from fixing things. This is what I mean about the pathological refusal of rightwingers to ever own up to any of the massive damage they cause, leave it for someone else to clean up and do nothing but attack and try to thwart that clean up crew. Beyond despicable. They're the "Bring America Down" claque.
