    Perhaps you wouldn't have slobbered if you had been aware the source I provided is who officially determines when we are in a recession. Carry on.

    Actually, I wouldn't have slobbered, had you not used a source whose numbers ended in February 11th 2011 to prove that the first two quarters--of 2011--showed positive growth.


    It didn't even include the whole month of February.

    Nice try at covering your mistake. You spewed your beer in your response to the NBER assessment that the recession ended in 2009. Did you forget already? Here it is again to remind you: http://www.debatepolitics.com/breaki...post1059671651

    And this was from the person who hasn't provided any documentation to back up his claim that we are currently in a recession.

    Let's just add "lagging indicator" to the list of things apdst has gotten wrong in this thread. It's amazing how one mistake is supported by another

    If Obama said it, it must be true because everyone knows that Obama never lies, right apdst?

    Me too. Let's do all the cuts now. And promise to raise taxes later.

    Timing is everything. In the past we got the tax increases immediately with the promise of spending cuts. The cuts never materialized. So let's do the opposite. Let's see all of the cuts now with a promise of tax increases sometime in the future.
