    It might lend credence to the idea that the recovery has been as good as could be reasonably expected under the circumstances. I suspect that there is no speed of recovery that would have satisfied the Obama Derangement Syndrome crowd.

    You'll excuse me if I disregard that old, tired liberal tactic. I mean, after 6 freaking years of nothing but failure from the Democrats...that's all you got.
    Yeah, you're right. I'm sure you've been more than reasonable with Democrats. You've never blamed them for bull**** beyond their control, I'm sure.

    sounds like YOU are the one giving Republicans a 'free pass".
    The Republicans...and the people...saw what the Democrats did when they had the majority and shellacked them for it. No...I give the House Republicans credit for preventing the Democrats from screwing things up even more.

    Oh...now you want to talk about Bush and the recession, eh? LOL!! Next thing you are going to do is whine about how tough it's been for the Democrats to recover our economy...in six freaking years!!

    You are satisfied with our anemic recovery...over a six year period? Because things were soooo bad? Damn! You are as bad as Obama when it comes to not taking responsibility.

    Oh...now it's about me?

    Dude...I'm just trying to talk about current issues.

    Anyway, Democrats have been in control for 6 years. Why are you making excuses? "beyond their control" LOL!!

    Your impressions are mere anecdotes. They are substantially irrelevant in an adult argument. They prove nothing and are not worth the cyberspace they take up. Find some emperical data to support your position or sit back and watch adults debate issues.

    Is that why the people and the electoral voted for Obama TWICE?
    Also, are you going to seriously sit there and say that the house didn't vote for the budget that the Dems had? that they didn't vote for increases in spending and size of government? Oh puleease, go sell that on the conservative facebook page. No one is buying that bull**** here.

    House republicans damn well have blame but you're too partisan to even notice.

    shrug...

    Too bad for the Democrats that Obama isn't running for election, eh? Now they have to run on their own merits...if we can get them to take responsibility for their merits, that is.

    Budget? What budget? Oh...wait...are you talking about all those continuing resolutions? You know...let's keep spending as we always have been because we can't (or won't) bring ourselves to actually DECIDE what to spend money on?

    House republicans damn well have blame but you're too partisan to even notice.
    Oh...I'm sure there's something to blame Republicans for...but the lousy recovery...the crappy unemployment situation...isn't one of them.

    As I said before, it is all in cycles. Republicans come into power, screw things up, then the Dems come in power and screw things up. Endless cycle and you GOP and Dem voters can't get that through your heads.


    Budget? What budget? Oh...wait...are you talking about all those continuing resolutions? You know...let's keep spending as we always have been because we can't (or won't) bring ourselves to actually DECIDE what to spend money on?
    Hmmmmm GOP voted to increase spending as well. Oh wait, let me guess, that is all the Dems fault the GOP voted for increases as well right?

    Oh...I'm sure there's something to blame Republicans for...but the lousy recovery...the crappy unemployment situation...isn't one of them.
    How about increased spending? Oh wait that MUST be the Dems fault because you don't hold the GOP accountable for ANYTHING even under the Bush years because of your partisan and can't blame the GOP for ANYTHING. Typical Con, always blaming the Dems for everything yet don't hold the GOP accountable for ANYTHING.
