    That's not what you said. You said Obama "PLANNED to wreck the economy".

    I'm just pointing out hyperbole.

    In 2008, he planned on wrecking the economy, moreso than what the congressional Democrats had already done. It was the only way he could get elected. Now he is wrecking the economy and it's either intentional, or because he's too weak and stupid to know better.

    How else do you explain his suggestion that businesses borrow money to make payroll?

    Businesses borrow money to make payroll all of the time. The problem occurs when businesses can't borrow money.

    For example: I'm self employed and I also work for a local consulting company.

    When I work for the consulting company I bill the client an hourly rate. The client doesn't pay my consulting company for my services for several months. But I get paid every 2 weeks. And there are hundreds of consultants working at our firm doing many types of jobs.

    On many occasions our consulting company borrows a ****oad of money to make payroll. Especially on brand new jobs. They know that eventually they're going to get their money back from the client, but in the interim they still have to pay their employees.

    Happens all of the time.

    So you don't actually disagree with it, you're just pointing it out.

    That's funny, most economic experts agree that the stimulus prevented the recession from becoming a depression and has kickstarted the reversal trend.

    I guess you know better, though.

    Yes. That's why I put the grinning face thingy after my statement.

    It's one thing to say Obama's economic policies are bad. It's a completely different claim to say Obama is intentionally trying to wreck the economy.

    Re: Time for Obama to go 'gangsta' on GOP

    it's never time to go gangsta

    but i'll tell you one thing

    one of obama's greatest big-picture mistakes, macropolitical, in my opinion, has been his failure to ADDRESS our young african american male neighbors and friends who suffer so much pain and hurt in their lives

    never have we had a president so uniquely positioned to take on this ultra touchy and painfully real issue, all the lives it touches, entire communities, indeed, a nation

    obama has paid lip service, and quite scant, at that

    he has NEVER prioritized it

    just another throw away line, like ending don't ask don't tell

    and tho he brings the deadly debate up for a few minutes every fathers day or so, he undermines his more positive messages and examples with his more regular resort to obligations society owes, wrongs in the past, reasons things are as bad as they are...

    his address to school kids which caused so much controversy, vividly painting up how extremely controversial our president is, was 2/3 about duties owed by schools and parents to the kids, emphasized above what our students can and must do to help themselves

    obama never really got real with perhaps the most unhappy members of our community, an historic opportunity tragically squandered

    bringing hope, healing and optimism into our inner cities woulda gone far towards making obama one heck of a great president

    instead, just like everything else, he does jack and squat
