    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?



    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.
    shrug...

    I don't even know why you are talking about Republicans since the Democrats have been in control for 6 years. Oh...wait...I forgot. You don't want to ADMIT it when the Democrats are responsible. Just like Obama and his buddies.

    Sorry but again your comments are lies since I HAVE blamed the Dems AND the GOP, unlike you who only blame the Dems. Nice try, do your partisan one-hat trick on someone else

    Yeah, empty mini-malls are "anecdotal" and the shrinking of our economy is "anecdotal."

    Of course CBO and other government numbers trump reality right?

    No ****, its called apprehension - do you actually believe for a second people didn't see the collapse coming YEARS in advance?

    Clinton's CRA is what started everything and republicans were dumb enough to trade the CRA for DOMA...

    This **** started when credit and mortgages became a "right."

    I think faster recovery was possible, but was slowed by Congress' inability to actually do anything. Republicans love to blame Democrats for all this, but how much of their agenda did they actually accomplish? Republican obstructionism has been huge since the day obama took office. They straight up admitted, in the middle of the worst recession we'd seen in a long time, that their first priority was to stop Obama from being re-elected.

    And then there's the government shutdown brinksmanship game from the tea party crowd. that does not make a stable environment for business to plan for the future.

    1. The Republicans didn't think...and I agree with them...that any of the Democrat's proposals would do a thing to increase the speed of the recovery. Witness their crowning glory...the stimulus that didn't. No, the Democrats were more interested in checking off their agenda items. The Republicans were correct to obstruct that sort of thing.

    2. While the Republicans were highly interested in making sure Obama wouldn't get re-elected, that wasn't the ONLY thing they were interested in. The House sent hundreds of bills to the Senate. They weren't ALL intended to stop Obama from being re-elected.

    "Highest priority" was their phrasing, not mine.

    So, Republicans work based on honest belief about what's best for the country, and democrats are just interested in some sinister agenda. Got it.

    shrug...

    Liberal agenda items: Raise taxes on the wealthy. Expand entitlement programs. Increase government control across the board. Yep...I'd say just about everything the Democrats have done...or tried to do...in the last six years fit right in there.

    Unfortunately for the country, economic recovery doesn't fit in there because economic recovery depends of more people having the freedom...and responsibility...to make their own decisions. That's pretty much the opposite of what the Democrats want.
