    Oh and when did Obama Bail out the teacher unions, was this an error on your part? If not please stop watching Fox, they are clearly destroying your mind.

    My mistake, I thought the name Conservative was just for your political party. No I was not alive during the Reagan years, I get most of my information from literature, and documentaries, I actually watched a documentary on Reagan that aired on HBO the other day and thats where I got the information about him pinching the middle class as well as increasing the National Debt. I also read a wonderful book called the Reagan years, which talked about his record, and yes he was a great president in many ways, but he has been over hyped for what he did in the financial sector according to many of the books I've read.

    As for Govt, you ignored my comments about the mess that Bush left us in. Was Obama supposed to ignore that mess and jump straight to the private sector? If that happened you would probably be bashing him for not handling those issues first before jumping on the private sector. The same solutions you suggested is what got us in most of the mess we're in now.

    Going back to Reagan and his years, the Budget for America was not as large as it is now, so that plays a part in the growth of the national debt. Obama is far from a Horrible president. Just like Reagan is far from a horrible president. I dont think Obama is perfect but you're talking about a president who came into office with an economic situation that can only be compared to the one Roosevelt had, oh and two wars, and a failing educational system. lets wait until he's out of office for a couple of years before we judge him as a president.
    I watched the HBO special too and found it to be almost solely one sided since I lived and worked during those years but Reagan is for another thread.

    If you have ever taken a civics course you would know that Congress makes the laws and appropriates the money. Congress from January 2007-January 2011 was under complete Democrat control. Obama was in that Congress. Bush didn't leave us any mess that Congress didn't help create. Obama ran on a platform of cleaning up the mess. Now let me ask you, if you were hired to clean up the mess left by a previous employee do you think you would have a job today if you had 2 million fewer jobs today than when you started the job and it cost 3.5 trillion added to the debt to generate those numbers?

    Obama is far from perfect and in fact is making Jimmy Carter look good. Stop buying the leftwing rhetoric and get the facts. We came out of the recession according to the NBER in June 2009 and 18 months after the recession ended the unemployment is every bit as bad, u-6 numbers than they were then. Obama reads a good speech but he is private sector illiterate. Nothing he has promised has happened yet some continue to buy the rhetoric.

    Some of the stimulus money went to the states and was used to shore up teacher's unions and to save teachers' jobs. That isn't the role of the Federal Govt. Your property taxes pay for schools and education is a state and local responsibility.

    That is one month not the two plus years he has been office, If he was focused on the private sector instead of never letting a good crisis go to waste thus helping him pass his leftwing agenda we wouldn't be in the same mess today. Do you think 2 million less jobs today than when he took office and 3.5 trillion added to the debt is a positive?

    How do you determine a saved job? Think the millions of unemployed care about saved jobs?

    Oh and don't forget using time travel to go back in the past and creating a fake birth certificate for baby Obama.
