    So, if you want to say that the party in charge of Congress is responsible for anything that happens from the instant that they get sworn in; how about 9/11? Biggest loss of life on American soil by foreign nationals since 1812. Clearly a massive screwup by the Republicans since they had been in control of Congress since 1995 and held the Presidency for months (almost 9). Should have impeached the lot of them on the spot. Right?

    Since you have obviously forgotten that the financial problems started way before Dec. 2007, try this:

    The Financial Crisis Timeline

    The time line only shows the actual unraveling of the system. It doesn't show the process of decay that preceded it while the Republicans ran the country. I know that you don't really believe that the Democrats could have prevented this meltdown in the two-weeks-ish that they were in control of Congress before the crisis started. Why bother trying to blame them? I'm really not as naive as you seem to think and I think that you aren't as dumb as to believe what you are saying.
    By the way, the fiscal year of the United States, thus the budget and legislative agenda begins on October 1 thus the Democrats controlled that process on October 1, 2008. Unemployment started rising in the summer of 2008 and the financial crisis really hit in August. Bush and the Congress created the TARP program that was signed as part of the 2009 fiscal year economic plan. I gave you the actual results of that program and you of course ignored those results. Payback of TARP should have reduced the deficit but didn't, why?

    That said, I,ll attempt to get this sucker back on track; maybe then, you can follow the point I was trying to make.

    This looks like a possible 94 midterm rerun. Clinton was weakened by a few blunders and of course the repugs, doing what they best, stall and obstruct, had the desired effect.Poll numbers in the tank, even lower than Obamas now. Clinton campaigned his a** off for everyone but still the Dems ended up in the barrel.The repugs were walking tall; they controlled the house, which was something they hadn’t done for fifty years and they had the Senate, for the first time in eight.

    Now fast forward past Monica,impeachment, past Whitewater and the lamea** attempts at defaming him AND his wife, calling them everything from murders, to a drugdealers. It didn’t matter what the repug noise machine threw at him, the country wasn’t buying any of the bulls****.

    Enter 1996 and his run against Senator Sourdough resulted in 49 percent of the popular vote. Thank you Ross. Speaking of Ross Perot, conservative, get the ole crystal ball out and look at the 2012 Presidential election and see if you don’t see a possible deju vu, with the tea party and all.

    Now prof, see if you can manage this without a half dozen links…Ooo, yes, see if you can manage to make one of your sentences come close to the post your quoting.




    .
    Donc, why do you support an Administration that has generated these kind of results? All I see from you is attacks on the past while ignoring the agenda of this Adminstration. What is it that the majority in this country see that you don't? Seems that you want to continue to live in the past while ignoring the present and the economic policy that this leftwing President is implementing. Guess that is the only way you can justify your own vote and actions.

    Here is something to think about

    Here is a chart that shows past presidents and the percentage of each president's cabinet appointees who had previously worked in the private sector - you know, a real life business, not a government or teaching job.

    1) T. Roosevelt 38%
    2) Taft 40%
    3) Wilson 52%
    4) Harding 42%
    5) FDR 50%
    6) Truman 50%
    7) Eisenhower 57%
    8) Kennedy 30%
    9) LBJ 37%
    10)Nixon 53%
    11)Ford 42%
    12)Carter 22%
    13)Reagan 59%
    14)GHWB 51%
    15)Clinton 37%
    16)GWB 55%

    And the Chicken Dinner Winner is:
    OBAMA - 8%

    These are the people who want to tell YOU how to run YOUR life! ONLY ONE IN TWELVE in the Obama Cabinet HAS EVER HAD A JOB in the private sector.

    of course they are; check out the provided cite

    let's also look at the fiscal responsibility which resulted when academicians were at the helm of government, rather than business representatives


    it would appear those from the academic world were better able to position the government's fiscal policies than the business leaders during the republican regimes

    Interesting that your chart goes to 2008. How does that look through 2010?

    To the best of my knowledge, they came from a study done by J.P. Morgan Chase. What is totally ignored however is the affect Congress has on economic policy and the fact that the chart posted only goes to 2008 and doesn't cover 2009 on. Since 2008 3 trillion dollars has been added to the debt and Democrats controlled the purse strings. we are rapidly approaching debt at 100% of GDP and Obama supporters continue to look backwards to divert from the present.

    you post a bunch of specific numbers by president going back to the beginning of the 1900's ... yet cannot offer a cite for those numbers
    then your numbers must be found bull****, like the rest of your post

    Don't have a current chart, just add three trillion to this one.

    LOL, got to love people calling themselves Independent that toe the liberal line and call anything that goes against that line bull****. thanks for the good laugh this morning. The problem is the results of this Administration isn't a laughing matter, 4 million more unemployed now than when Obama took office, higher unemployment on a month to month bases this year vs last when the recession ended, and 3 trillion added to the debt yet it is all about diversion from this record.
