    In the past, it was easy for politicians to create money out of thin air to jump start the economy. The problem today is that we have grossly overextended ourselves, and all the extra money for projects is going to do is make the dollar a little more worthless. Granted, jobs will be created, but at what price? Inflation is a hidden tax, a stealth tax, and probably the most onerous of all taxes in existence.

    Dont say the N word to me again.

    Yes, but not if this spending continues. Debt to GDP will be 100% in the not too distant future all because of Obama spending. Where do you get your information that their economies are stable? Both Germany and France are abandoning Obama style economic model.
    No, fool, it would only be the size necessary for the bailout, not a slippery slope to complete economic takeover. Also they don't follow an 'obama style' economic model in the first place and they weren't the source of the global financial collapse.

    You really are young, the economy would have fixed itself. Bush was wrong with TARP and Obama is wrong in his economic policies. Name for me one prediction he has made that has been true?
    LMAO How about a prediction from Marxist side of things thats true, amigo. Capitalism goes through natural boom and bust cycles. Take another word from marx, CAPITALISM. He coined it.

    Didn't say he caused it but did say he had nothing to do with the creation of TARP. All he did was take credit for the results. Your time line is really screwed up and you have a short term memory, we knew about the banks in October which was prior to the elections. Half of TARP was spent by Bush and the other half by Obama. The money has been mostly paid back. where did the payback go?
    Wait, it was passed out to black folks waiting in line?

    So as long as he spends money on the economy that is all that matters? He has added 3 trillion to the debt, there are 16 million unemployed, economic growth is declining again but that is ok in your world because he is spending money on the economy? Wow, you vote?
    Maybe it speaks to the economy's failings, also I mentioned the bailout wasn't big enough to account for the size of the bust.

    I think it is probably easier before one takes office, to make said promises. Once you get in and find out all the parameters and roadblocks and games that go on - yeah. Good times.

    I don't envy him.
    The mess, partly created by the Dems, is what got his dumbass elected.

    We're still waiting for your list of wonderful things that Obama has accomplished.

    =SE102;1058967639]Dont say the N word to me again.
    What are you talking about? That was an Obama supporter looking for Obama Stash. Sounds a lot like you or a relative.

    No, fool, it would only be the size necessary for the bailout, not a slippery slope to complete economic takeover. Also they don't follow an 'obama style' economic model in the first place and they weren't the source of the global financial collapse.
    How old are you? Do you know what happened in Sept. 08? You are like far too many Obama supporters who believe the TARP bill was signed by Obama. that is the bank bailout program and was signed by Bush

    As for Europe, they have the economic model that obama wants here and are running from it. Why?

    LMAO How about a prediction from Marxist side of things thats true, amigo. Capitalism goes through natural boom and bust cycles. Take another word from marx, CAPITALISM. He coined it.
    I asked you what economic prediction Obama has made that has come true and you start talking about Marx? You really don't know why you support Obama, do you?


    Wait, it was passed out to black folks waiting in line?
    Yep, Obama passed out TARP money to people in line, LOL. The point of the video was Obama supporters thought they were going to get money from Obama and when asked where the money comes from they, like far too many, didn't have a clue and thought it was coming from some stash he had. Who knows, you may believe the same thing.


    Maybe it speaks to the economy's failings, also I mentioned the bailout wasn't big enough to account for the size of the bust.
    It was the Obama Stimulus that was passed by a Democrat Congress and was supposed to grow the economy 4% annually and keep unemployment from exceeding 8%. If it was too small, who is to blame? I don't think it was too small at all, just directed to the wrong people. It was supposed to go for shovel ready jobs but instead went to bailout out unions. It has been claimed that it saved jobs but there is no proof of that yet Obama supporters still support him, why?

    First you insinuate that the money was distributed to people on the street like a handout. What you imply in extension with that clip is absolutely disgusting. Then you insinuate with a conspiratorial video that I am related to a person who would steal money from the government. (As if its ever happened).

    How old are you? Do you know what happened in Sept. 08? You are like far too many Obama supporters who believe the TARP bill was signed by Obama. that is the bank bailout program and was signed by Bush
    Get your facts straight, though no amount of facts could shake you out of your pathetic political psychosis. The announcement of the depression was witheld for the election. The fact that things were going bad already speaks to Bush's performance.

    As for Europe, they have the economic model that obama wants here and are running from it. Why?
    Read a book. get out of my face.

    I asked you what economic prediction Obama has made that has come true and you start talking about Marx? You really don't know why you support Obama, do you?
    Please tell my why you hate him first of all.

    Get reported.
