    Same reason the opposite happened two years ago. Punishing the party in power. It's certainly not because of any inherent greatness in either party.
    Wouldn't you expect that with overwhelming numbers in Congress that the liberal policies would have generated greater results than what we currently have?

    My choice was Bush vs Gore and Bush vs. Kerry, I chose Bush both times and chose wisely. IMO the alternative would have been much worse.

    Read the entire sentence I posted and stop misrepresenting what I was talking about.

    That's fair, but my reasoning on Obama vs. McCain was largely the same but from the opposite POV. I've stated this many times, that I thought Obama was a better alternative. To which you reply that I'm stupid.

    Goes both ways.

    As I've said, I will weigh his record vs. his opponent, when I know who that is. Fair enough?

    It requires both. Congress also needs the president final approval to spend.

    This is easy to prove as bull****. The recession began only 3 months after their first budget went into effect. And I've asked you in the past, what policy did they pass or fail to pass that resulted in the recession and all you could do was mumble Frank and Dodd -- who were in the minority party while the damage was being done. It's as though you believe Republicans had nothing to do with the financial meltdown.

    I never called you stupid and if I did I would apologize. Mods seem to follow me very closely so if I did that I would have gotten an infraction.
