    I wasn't disputing your claim about the CBO, nor was I comparing the costs of Bush's program to the costs of healthcare reform. I pointing out the hypocrisy in your opinion that only liberals cite the CBO when it supports their conclusions and agenda, when in reality both sides have been guilty of doing so.

    I only use CBO to make fun of those that use CBO as being an accurate source. I use bls.gov, bea.gov, and the U.S. Treasury Sites as they are more accurate than any other because they use actual data not assumptions which CBO uses.

    (Never overlooked it at all but what do you expect when you spend over a trillion dollars to stimulate the economy
    Note the bolded part.

    Kinda looks to me that you were just bitchen about the cost Obama had to spend saving us from a bush depression instead of the bush recession that we are climbing out of now.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Stimulating the economy is one thing, generating these type results is another. You seem to think that generting these kind of results is a success. Love it when you show ignorance calling it the Bush depression as it is nothing more than attempts at baiting.

    QUOTE Conservative;

    The results speak for themselves; we are on the road to recovery. Instead the arrow pointing down like it was before the presidential election, it is now pointing up.

    It is a success considering the alternative.


    ove it when you show ignorance calling it the Bush depression as it is nothing more than attempts at baiting.
    Nah, it wasn't the bush depression.It was the bush recession as you pointed out.

    Sounds like a plan to me.

    There is quite a difference between a recession and a depression which apparently you don't understand. Bush was in office when the recession started in December 2007 with the Democrats in control of Congress. You really need to set your standards higher with Democrat results. 2 million fewer people employed, 3.5 trillion added to the debt, and 2.8% GDP growth isn't what most people will call a success.

    You want so badly to give Obama credit which apparently means you have the same ideology as he does. that makes you the exact oppositie of the Founders and most in this Center-Right country. Obama has done more harm to this country than anything Bush ever did and the results are quite telling. Bush added 6.5 million jobs during two recessions and with 9/11. Added 4.6 trillion to the debt in 8 years which Obama will pass in 3, and generated 4.5 trillion GDP growth.

    agreed with 100% whoever is in charge of the government at the time uses the CBO to push their agenda, the CBO's projections are nothing more then the party in charge projections
