    I know that you are going to attend a few Obama campaign rallies so when you get bored here is a little game you can play while listening to him rant and rave. It will keep you awake and motivated.

    I think you are correct, it doesn't matter who the Republicans pick, he/she will lose. That's why there is such reluctance for anyone to throw their hat in the ring. The Tea Party will push whoever the candidate so far to the right, he/she won't have a chance.

    Do you like Donald Trump?

    Again, I'm reading you very clearly. Instead of acknowledging that TARP did, in fact, keep us from going into a depression you fall back on "claims" made by others. See the difference here? But atleast you've finally acknowledged that TARP was Bush's baby and not Pres. Obama's. You win brownie points for that admission. Well Done!

    As to your counter-argument, "What has Pres. Obama done to bring us back from the brink of a depression?", you have links to websites I've provided that contain all relevent up-to-date information on TARP (post-Bush) which, in conjunction with the ARRA, helped keep this country from experiencing another depression. We still have a long way to go, but anyone who still doubt the effectiveness of TARP and the ARRA are just in denial.

    I have always said that Bush created TARP but it seems that Obama has a hard time giving him credit for TARP keeping us from a great depression as economists have stated. That is the point. I could say that TARP saved us but no one here would buy it but economists saying it makes it more credible to some. Some however still believe that the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act should get credit and I do give it credit, credit for creating more unemployment than when Obama took office, creating more debt, bailing out union pension funds, and doing nothing to put 15 million unemployed back to work. The recession ended according to NBER in June 2009 meaning that recovery began before that thus meaning that Obama had little impact on creating that recovery. It took time for Obama spending to hit the economy and there is no way that enough money was spent in 90 days to turn the economy around yet Obama takes credit for spending us towards bankruptcy. Combining TARP and ARRA together is puting oil and water together, they don't mix.

    Perhaps he never realized you asked one since he is too busy having a conversation with himself.

    Perhaps. More likely is the fact that he doesn't realize I know the answer to the question and I am asking him to do a hypocrisy check. Probably why he's avoiding it.

    Now you're arguing with yourself. In another post, you said that ARRA created or saved 3.5 million jobs.
