    Yeah, I love when the economy's strength is based on speculation in a brand new market. Exaggerated expectations and huge transactions with money that didn't exist sets up a fantastic bubble burst. You remember the 90's right? And then around 2002 when things started to decline. And then how the policies enacted during that year and the several subsequent to it not only exacerbated the problems that already existed, but set up a whole batch of new ones that brought us into the recession we're presently in.

    But yeah, the employment rate under Bill Clinton was pretty good.

    Unless Obama makes a drastic change in his thinking and actions he is going to see an unemployment rate the will be the highest at the time of the 2012 election than anyone in office has ever survived.

    For one who people claim is brilliant he has continued to do the stupidest things he could do that have in the past been shown to be failed policies.

    A 3 year old learns that if you put your hand in a fire it burns you. Obama doesn't get, and I have no clue why.

    I don't like anything about Obama and I have made no secret of it, but I do want him to succeed because if he does the right thing we all benefit.

    So far he has failed to do the right thing and we all suffer for it, and not just us but the ripple effect throughout the rest of the world is going to be devastating unless he changes his ways

    I see. Rush makes a racist joke and it's "Oh, he made a joke. Don't you libs have a sense of humor?" Obama makes a joke and it's "He's a dud."

    Gotta love the knee-jerk right.

    that is true but that whole NAFTA thing really bites the big one. Ross Perot was right.

    Vs. Obama, you bet!! Bush didn't have a net job loss, didn't have 25 million unemployed and under employed, didn't have a credit downgrade, and didn't oversee 4 trillion added to the debt in 3 years.

    That is the perception that the media has built and you bought although it doesn't matter today. Clinton isn't on the 2012 ballot but the Obama record is, net job loss, 25 plus million Americans unemployed and under employed, declining labor force, rising misery index, credit downgrade, 4 trillion added to the debt in 3 years.

    Posters have repeatedly pointed out to you the extent of your "causation = correlation" and post hoc ergo propter hoc logical fallacies. You engage in such fallacies on an almost hourly basis, if not more frequently. The fact that you simply refuse to learn from your mistakes, after having them pointed out to you dozens of times, speaks volumes of your ideological hackishness.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    That is what some people do all the time yet never respond to the results generated all in a feeble attempt to divert from that record. Facts always confuse some people who prefer rhetoric and how they feel. They have no problem blaming someone else but never accepting responsibility for the choice they made. Your causation = correlation argument is only used to defend your choice but never applied to other Administrations.

    When do liberals ever learn from their mistakes? Liberals continue to choose rhetoric over results and the Obama rhetoric brainwashed a lot of people who willingly bought it without considering history and the failures of that rhetoric to generate positive results.
