    I am talking about debt - not the deficit.

    I guess you refuse to acknowledge the national debt increase was greater under Obama's 3.17 years then under GWB's 8 years.

    Noted.

    [quote]The increase under Obama was due to the Bush Recession, what was the even greater increase under Bush due to?



    You typed:

    'By almost every measure, Obama has made improvements in the situation he inherited.'

    By your own words...the specific situations mentioned above have gotten worse since Obama took over....not improved.

    You did not say 'even though things have gotten worse, they are Bush's responsibility'.

    You said 'by almost every measure Obama has made improvements'.

    Well, these are standard measurements used BY THE GOVERNMENT to measure certain aspects of the economy/government financial situation (unemployment, food stamps, national debt, house prices) - and every one that I have mentioned has gotten worse, not improved under Obama.


    Just face it - your statement was inaccurate.

    Denying plain facts is just silly.

    The unions are at fault for ruining America.

    There are unions that are still demanding outrageous wages. They have given us no choice but to send American jobs overseas.
    Funny, that the outsourcing happened in the 80s AFTER the Unions were crushed.

    BTW, I LOVE how libertarians blame the individuals for these statistics ....

    Suddenly Americans have just gotten lazier ... and it just so happened to happen at the same time that capitalism went into crisis .... Yet those in the social democratic countries with much less unemployment I guess people are just more industrious ...

    Did everyone suddenly just get stupid??? Is that what happened??? Did everyone SUDDENLY happen to be irresposible??? DId they all happen to do that at the EXACT time the economic conditions changed???

    No indeed. It started with the New Deal, then we got the Great Society and now we have Obama. It is a trend that started and has continued under Democrat auspice culminating in the demand for lots of free stuff from the nanny state. Much of it was well-intended but short-sighted in that it invariably evolved into a vast permanent, parasitic and lethargic underclass. It was many things, but certainly not sudden.

    After the New Deal and the Great Society, we had the most prosperous time in Americna history ... Then we had the Reagen Revolution, followed by the Neoliberalism of Clinton, whose legacy is being continued by both Bush and Obama, which the result of we see now.

    Most of the economy is run by private, for profit capitalist corporations with the capitalist mode of production (worker/capitalist) .... So yeah.

    Then there are some people I know who have all the gadgets, go out to eat a lot, the wife got cosmetic suregery using her credit card, but they "can't afford" medical insurance on their children....
