    QUOTE Conservative

    Why don't you check out the economic growth and job creation during those 4 years?

    So sad. Another lamea** attempt at dishonesty on conservative’s part. CES0000000001=2001=132469 2002= 130591



    Right, tax cuts are an expense to the govt. so suggest you send all your money and let them tell you how much you need. Two wars cost 100 billion a year for the last 10 years. 9/11 cost over a trillion dollars on one attack. We haven't been attacked again so looks like a good ROI
    So that’s how it’s done eh? We bomb a country into the Stone Age…whoops, they were already there.

    Well, that didn’t work, I guess we’d better gin up an attack on Iraq and say the oil will pay for it. Heh, heh, heh.



    Bush had 8,5 million jobs created in 2001-2007 and lost 2 million in 2008. Obama has less employed today than when he took office. Bush had a recession in 2001, 9/11 in 2001, and the recession in 2008. The Bush recession ended 6-2009 according to NBER.

    And Obama inherited the mother of all recessions…the bush recession.


    Looks like the electorate looked at the promises Obama made during the campaign and held him accountable on Nov. 2, 2010. How did that turn out for him?

    Kinda looks like we’ll maybe be seeing Sara, or Huck, or Maybe Michelle, or whatever the RNC dredges up in about two and a half years then.


    Here is what you cannot seem to understand, employment numbers for the first two years of the Bush Administration and the Obama Administration

    2001 137778
    2002 135701

    2009 142221
    2010 138333


    9/11 and the recession of 2001 cost Bush 361,000 jobs

    Obama has 2.9 million less people employed.
    No 9/11 didn’t cost that many jobs, its the combination of the two-wars exacerbated, by the ill advised tax cuts during said wars.The rest your contorting yourself yet again pulling that stuff out.



    Yep, another attempt to sell the leftwing socialist agenda of Barack Obama but the results don't fly

    Got nothing left but add homs eh? That’s a sure sign that your meds have worn off…better take your Metamucil and go to bed om.
    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

    Gas prices are a product of supply and demand. (The ME is going through revolution.) State doesn't control that.

    Last year the GDP reached a record high in US history, unemployment is dropping, banks are lending and companies are hiring. The state of the union is much better than it was in 2008 and much better than it could be if we "did nothing."

    zeitgeist, can you stop posting irrelevant things please. Make a new thread in conspiracy theories if you want, but don't muddle conversations here.
    Give a man a fish, or he will destroy the only existing vial of antidote.

    Because it's relevent. If you have questions about what I said, ask.

    Yep. A tax bill that will protect the middle-class. Because when middle-class taxes are low, they have more money to spend.

    If it also gives the wealthy a tax-break, it doesn't contradict what I said.
