    When the recession ended under Bush in July 2003, there was a loss of 42k jobs in August followed by 46 months of successive job gains. That's what you call weak or mediocre jobs recovery. Strong job recovery is when you have a mix of job losses and a few gains from temporary census workers. Come on, this is basic Econ 101.
    All I'm saying is that economics becomes very complicated. Yes the job loss is obvious but the reasons for the job loss and other areas where people can point to "recovery" make it more complicated and since the variables are almost always endless its not a subject I like to dive into. Do I support tax cuts? Absolutely. But that doesn't mean I understand all the variables of the economy.
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    Also from the article:



    Now I would like to ask the folks out there in the audience this question:

    If a second stimulus is needed to avoid a secondary and possibly more severe recession, would you be in favour of it?

    Although the question is irrelevent as the White House has said there will be no second stimulus.

    I think many people out there seriously underestimate just how severe this recession is, and that there is no magic fix for it.
    The article is a lot more pessimistic overall. The key point is that the recessions are getting deeper and deeper. The bit of good news you quoted is great, but we have a lot more ground to recover this time. In the long run, spending isn't the answer.

    You don't. I don't. Obama doesn't. Truth is, no one really can.

    What I do know is the government can do nothing but mess up the economy. Only the private sector can fix it.

    And if you tax the private sector to cover up big-government messes, the private sector will take its ball and go home, and we're screwed.

    Um, no! It was because of government intervention, that we found ourselves in the ****hole we're in now. How much has the government invaded the private sector since 2007 and how much improvement has there been?

    American conservative thinking = lets **** up the economy with lazzie-faire policies so our friends can get rich, and then to fix the problem... do more of the same!
    The government can't create wealth, so it's extremely important that the private sector gets rich. The richer the private sector, the more revenue the government will get. Let a little common sense shine in.

    On the current recovery... sure... it is way better than it was under Bush or would have been under Palin.. I mean the senile McCain.

    As for partisan mouth foaming.. look at the other conservative posts.. that is your partisan mouth foaming.. mine is factual.

    Not if you insist that we're doing better under Obama than we were under Bush.

    are you basing that on a learned understanding of economic reality or based on a blind devotion to leftwing babble?
