    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.
    Budgets don't cause recessions, economic policy or lack of it does. By the way, ask Dodd how he did on his Countrywide loan?

    Re: Obama announces his Candidacy for 2012.

    This was expected since he is a first term president as well as the first black president. He will probably win due to the media trying to prop up Palin or some Rino republican and the media deliberately squeezing out the 3rd party candidates. .
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Point is, you can't have it both ways. Either blame Bush and Obama or blame neither. Does the President control the economy, or does Congress?
    Have you noticed that the national debt has increased
    $253,241,734,479.60 since Republicans took control of the Congress?

    As soon as you pull the wool off from your eyes and admit that you made a mistake at least four times in voting for a complete failure named GWB.

    Unlike you....who thinks that GWB was an economic genius.....I and others have said that Obama hasn't been much better....that said....it doesn't take away from the mess that GWB left.

    Wait... so but you said this:

    So, who is the more important entity when it comes to the economy... Congress or the President?

    You cited Frank and Dodd policy from 2006 -- when they were both in the minority party. Apparently, you must believe that two individuals from the minority party wield greater power than then the Republican party while they were in charge.

    Do you also know that this is the 2011 budget and spending done by the Democrat controlled Congress that was due October 2010? This really has to be an act for no one is really this totally brainwashed. Everyone knows that the Democrat Congress failed to pass a budget for 2011 and the Republicans in the House passed Continuing Resolutions with budget cuts. Wait until you see the 2012 budget being unveiled tomorrow. Then the Democrat screaming will be unbearable.

    Not policy at all, oversight. Both were on the banking committee and both said the banking industry was solid, gee, wonder why?
