    Do you people really believe a republican would be doing any better right now? After all they did get us into this recession.
    Yes, I do believe a Republican would be doing better for no Republican I know would have surrounded himself with the leftwing elite booksmart, street stupid liberal economists whose vision of this country is a European socialist model that is a failure.

    The "mess" that Obama "inherited" is the mess he helped create in the Congress. I am tired of this inherited argument. Obama has made the problem worse by implementing a stimulus plan that stimulated nothing but bigger govt. and pet Democratic constituent groups.

    That's funny. The economy was on the verge of collapse when Obama took office. The housing and financial sectors were in ruins. The standard republican response of cutting taxes for the rich would not have helped one bit. I am glad you let Bush off the hook for the disaster he helped create. More so than Obama who was just a lowly senator.

    You will never get it, by personal design. For to admit you are wrong would force you to admit that the ideology that you support has been wrong. Your ego will never allow you to admit you are wrong on any issue.

    We have three equal branches of govt. as created by our Constitution. Now it is easier placing blame on the Executive Branch vs. putting the blame on your own Representatives. Obama was in the Senate, thus the Legislative Branch, and helped create this "mess' that you claim he inherited. That is intellectual dishonesty on your part. One would think that a person carrying the standard for the Democratic Party wouldn't be called a lowly Senator and would carry much more weight than that.

    Obama and the Democrat Congress was more concerned about regaining the WH than doing their job. We are paying the price for that today.

    Carter inherited a mess ??

    You guys sound like a broken record....

    Carter made a shamble out of the country and Obama is following in his footsteps.

    I lived through it. Inflation was so bad during Nixon's term, he implemented the Wage and Price Freeze. That was fun. Gas prices first skyrocketed during Nixon's presidency when the first Arab oil embargo occurred. And Ford tried to stop inflation by printing up WIN buttons. Whip Inflation Now. And Carter got blamed for it all. He even got blamed for high interest rates even though he had nothing to do with setting interest rates. The GDP grew every year under Carter and there was no recession. There was no financial sector collapse and no recession.

    Carter won because the economy sucked.

    You guys are just in denial. Nixon also tried to get universal healthcare that would have been more costly than Obamas.

    I also lived through the horrible Carter days. It was impossible to buy a house because the mortgage rate was 20% in 1980. And you actually try and claim that he had no hand in it???

    A WIN button??? That beats Carter advice that we should all wear sweaters in the house.

    And if possible, he's been a worse ex-president than he was as president.

    Carter had no hand in setting interest rates. Absolutely none. Paul Volcker of the FED set interest rates high to defeat inflation. And mortgage rates were never 20%. It sure was a better strategy than setting mortgage rates artificially low and destroying the housing sector..
    Reagans first term was worse than Carters.

    So he was lying about paying 20% for a mortgage?

    Typical.
