So the world began with Reagan? I don't think so, yet you have the nerve to call someone else a 'partisan hack'??? Get real man.Must we rehash the same tired argument in every thread you come across?
Our national economy lost BILLIONS when the housing bubble burst. Corperate American could NOT pay its way out of ITS debt not only to its shareholders but to investors or the U.S. Treasury (federal loan guarantees). The ONLY entity with the financial clout to bail out the banks (and assist the auto industry) was the U.S. Treasury itself. No matter how many times I or others tell you this or provide you the evidence, you still refuse to believe that Pres. Obama came into office with THE LARGEST DEBT AND DEFICIT OF ANY PRESIDENT IN U.S. HISTORY! But you want to run him out of office on a rail for what? Executing TARP - a program enacted by his predecessor - in a far better fashion than was originally outlined? Trying to get financial support (Stimulus) to the States (which many Governors say they'd have gone bankrupt long ago without) that Conservatives claim are soverign but are still coming to the Treasury with their collective hands out-stretched?
You really should come down out of those anti-Obama/hardline Conservative clouds and try seeing our nation's economic problems for what they really are. Pres. Obama didn't create this mess! It's been long in the making since the Reagan era only many of you on the Right refuse to accept it. Instead, you defend the enourmous defense spending under every Republican President since Reagan only because our Constitution calls for "providing for the common defense" of the nation. Nevermind that both Reagan and both Bushs run up large deficits primarily via defense spending, none of which was paid for! And you claim that Obama is spending money from the Treasury as if it were his own personal printing press. Yet, you ignore THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT REAGAN, GH AND GW BUSH ALL DID!!! They cared nothing about running up deficits, but you want to condemn Obama for doing so to HELP lift this country out of debt, but you won't say a damned thing about the debts THREE REPUBLIC PRESIDENT ran up.
You're a hypocrit - a partisan hack of the highest degree. I have no time to waste on folks who refuse to see reason because they refuse to take off their partisan blinders.
