    Having control of the Congress and the Presidency provides no excuse for not having a fiscal year 2011 budget, a budget that begins October 2010. Democrats have had control of Congress for four years. How long before they correct the problems some claim Bush created all by himself? So far we are 3 trillion more in debt in 2009 and 2010 and the numbers this year are worse than 2009. That apparently is liberal progress?

    Who is sharing the blame with what has happened since January 21, 2009. Who are you going to share it with? How do you explain a recession ending in June 2009 and worse economic results today? How do you explain higher unemployment each month of 2010 vs. 2009? Who is to blame for those numbers?

    How many bills did Democrats get 66 votes in the Senate on? Because every bill with 65 votes or less could have been vetoed. Any bill with 59 votes or less could have been filibustered. Putting 100% of the blame on Democrats for taking over in 2006 is silly. It's a shared responsibility because, honestly, Democratic and Republican spending has not been substantially different for decades. They both raise spending.

    More on-topic, Senator Boehner literally straight up said when he introduced this pledge "We're not going to be different than we have been."

    These people are clueless.

    Although quite telling that Democrats and Obama supporters want to focus on everything prior to 2009 the fact remains Democrats can no longer blame Bush for making things worse in 2010 vs. 2009. What economic policy or prediction has Obama made that has improved the economy or been accurate?

    remember, I'm the one arguing the government can't fix the econmy. you're the one arguing the government is the answer.

    Govt. provides the incentive or lack of it for individuals to produce results. This Administration's results speak for themselves but the true Obama cult followers don't want to hold their choice to the same standards they held Bush. Bush continues to be blamed for the recession of 2008 even though the results today are worse this year vs. last.
