    True, but he was the one who was in charge when the hole was being dug... Funny how you ignore that fact.

    So you are telling me Aznar is at fault for your mess?
    LOL.

    You have to dig a lot deeper than the last administration at most any fundamental fault-line, and if you look at what happened to those that tried to bring to light the problems at Fred and Fan... you'll see how rabid these leftists were.

    Germany's problems are Schroeder's? Even though I dislike the scumbag, it goes deeper than him, deeper than Kohl.

    You're right, it goes all the way back to Reagan.

    Slow growth is still a hell of a lot better than the direction we were headed prior to Obama. I would like to see things improve a lot more, but I will take slow progress over the slide towards depression that we had during the last administration.

    Ever hear of:
    Clinton?
    Reno?
    Carter?
    Johnston?
    FDR?

    The New Deal?
    The Great Society?
    Freddie Mac & Fannie Mae
    Forcing banks to loan money for houses to people that couldn't afford them... under penalty of law?

    Funny how "cut taxes, raise spending" is perfectly valid economic practice until a (D) is doing it.

    Reagan wanted spending cut... it was the only bit of his agenda that wasn't accomplished.
    Had the Dem controlled Congress slashed spending as promised, Reagan would have signed on... without hesitation.

    The other point is Reagan managed to cut taxes and regulation with Dems in power to get the economic engine going... exactly what a certain John Fitzgerald Kennedy proposed for long term growth 18-years before Reagan took office.

    Address at the Economic Club of New York, December 14, 1962

    Our true choice is not between tax reduction, on the one hand, and the avoidance of large Federal deficits on the other. It is increasingly clear that no matter what party is in power, so long as our national security needs keep rising, an economy hampered by restrictive tax rates will never produce enough revenue to balance our budget just as it will never produce enough jobs or enough profits...

    In short, it is a paradoxical truth that tax rates are too high today and tax revenues are too low and the soundest way to raise the revenues in the long run is to cut the rates now. The experience of a number of European countries and Japan have borne this out. This country's own experience with tax reduction in 1954 has borne this out. And the reason is that only full employment can balance the budget, and tax reduction can pave the way to that employment. The purpose of cutting taxes now is not to incur a budget deficit, but to achieve the more prosperous, expanding economy which can bring a budget surplus.

    I repeat: our practical choice is not between a tax-cut deficit and a budgetary surplus. It is between two kinds of deficits: a chronic deficit of inertia, as the unwanted result of inadequate revenues and a restricted economy; or a temporary deficit of transition, resulting from a tax cut designed to boost the economy, increase tax revenues, and achieve--and I believe this can be done--a budget surplus. The first type of deficit is a sign of waste and weakness; the second reflects an investment in the future.

    IMO we are already in the next recession.

    Do you know that the definition of recession is TWO quarters of negative growth. Last quarter we showed positive growth, this quarter will be postive as well. Can we at least try and stick to reality???
