    But why do you think that's bad? As I showed you earlier, by the 2004 election, Bush also had unemployment increase by 2 million and yet you voted for him anyway. If that wasn't bad enough to dissuade you from voting to give Bush 4 more years, why is it so terrible now for Obama?

    That's true... but that's not what we are discussing. Why is it that you are refusing to respond to my question?

    I will not be voting for Obama but it doesn't really matter as he doesn't have a chance in the state of TX anyway. In October 2004 the economy was improving and headed in the right direction. The economic policy of Bush's was pro growth and pro free enterprise and economic growth was strong, not so with Obama. His is a pro nanny state and big central govt. policy that hasn't provided any leadership in promoting the private sector. Then there was the candidate against Bush, Kerry. Enough said. obama policies go against everything I was taught and the principles upon which this country was built.

    i've answered you straight a half dozen times

    the president proposes, congress disposes

    the president is head of his party in congress

    our system is based on separation of powers...

    i'm stunned anyone past 8th grade would have to ask

    no problem, tho

    stay up
