    "Inability to respect people who disagree with me"..... Beautiful, good one.

    Take a stroll through the pages of these threads, and then come on back and tell me who disrespects whom in here of those disagreeing with a particular point of view....

    Pure Allensky tactic.

    My bad...Ok, so according to the administration lackeys, the number fell by some 11K in March....A couple of questions if I could...

    1. Where'd they go?

    2. with the new accounting tricks the administration put in place recently do you actually believe that number?

    3. Of those 11K people, how many of them found work?

    Calling people "dumb" for disagreeing with your political ideology is an inability to respect people with different political ideologies - you shouldn't have said it if you can't own up to it.

    Well I asked you to show which economist believes we need to gain 250,000 jobs a month to "break even" and your article didn't confirm that. I believe the "break even" number is far less than 250,000.

    Only in your world are 15 million Americans unemployed and 4 trillion added to the debt a rebounding economy. Congratulations on those outstanding results!

    you can quibble about the exact figure but the fact is we are NOT growing anywhere near enough to get us out of this mess

    and now we're looking at gruesome gas prices, housing still no basement in sight, ANOTHER unfunded war, states (led by new york and california) about to lay off hundreds of thousands starting NOW...

    and all this despite what we've been thru

    in times like these

    run on his RECORD

    defend THAT

    But results meant nothing to you when you voted for Bush in 2004. Twin Towers gone, 2 million additional unemployed, invading Iraq over WMD they didn't have... How come you now hold Democrats to a higher standard than you held yourself to?

    Re: Obama announces his Candidacy for 2012.

    The rate at which the economy is improving make me think Obama is slowing the recovery more then actually improving it. The economy WAS going to recover on it's OWN anyway and it still will, unless you decide to put to much regulation and spending in the pot.

    Watching percentages on how the economy is improving and show that Obama is responsible is retarded, because it's supposed to go up anyway.
    What you SHOULD be doing is looking back at past recessions and during whos presidency did the most of combination of two things, and #2 is more importance then the other...
    #1 How fast the economy bounce back
    #2 How strong the economy became after the initial growth

    If you would consider during Reagan, the Reagan economic boom (the Reagan boom) made the U.S. dominate the computer softeware manufacturing buisness and 18.7 million jobs were created...which was a world record. Now FDR's plans actually had a very slow recovery in comparison, and it is argueable that he even slowed the eonomic rebound. Obama's recovery show's extremely limited growth and is laughable in comparison.
