    But I will say for some Republicans and Conservatives out there.

    I'll bet you anything that John McCain would have done a stimulus bill and continually renewed unemployment benefits.
    WE know he would have, that's why so many didn't come out and vote for him
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Since when did a leftwing rag blog piece count as BN around here?

    This is some serious retard-level math.

    First, they simply add or subtract various programs from the deficit without actually considering how their inclusion or removal would actually affect the underlying economy.

    Second, they add in the "projected" $455b in cost savings from the second decade of the health care bill - the only problem is that that "projection" only works if Congress doesn't modify the proposed cost cuts. Given that they've repealed them every single time they come up (including just a few months ago), nobody actually believes that will happen.

    Third, he doesn't appear to understand the difference between correlation and causation. We can't all have passed 11th grade politics, but I'd at least hope that a blogger from Newsweek could spend enough time on wiki to figure it out.

    Just terrible, awful, no good logic. I'd be embarrassed to have written this.

    Every post in this forum is an attempt on your part to make Obama look better than he is. There is nothing but speculation in this article by someone else who apparently is a partisan liberal. Talk about fuzzy math and pure bs, I have now seen it all.

    All this speculation is meaningless because the actual results are lost jobs and 3 trillion added to the deficit. Not sure how anyone can ignore the actual results today and speculate that things would be worse.

    Healthcare savings? LOL, taxes have already begun and the program doesn't kick in for another 4 years yet Obama has added 3 trillion to the debt. Now talking job losses, there are the job losses now and no evidence that the situation would have been worse? There is plenty of evidence that we have almost 16 million unemployed and lost jobs every month of this year after passing a trillion dollar stimulus plan. Employment is much worse now than when Obama took office.

    There is no question that I would have liked to see what McCain would have done because we now know what Obama did. Why don't you tell us why you continue to support what Obama is doing?

    I didn't read past that point, because you have already clearly, concisely and repeatedly stated that your only goal here is to tear down liberals.

    Actually I don't have to work hard at it, just post the facts. What bothers me is you buying what you are told and never verifying the rhetoric. What exactly is it that Obama has done which the numbers show a success? Numbers do matter because no matter how attractive and dynamic an individual is it is the results that matter more than the rhetoric and appearance.

    I certainly understand your desire to want Obama to look good but what you are doing is destroying your own credibility by not verifying the rhetoric and getting non partisan data. It is one thing to be an ideologue but another to have pride and credibility.

    I'm fine. Lacking credibility with this lot is not exactly breaking my heart.

    LOL sure you forgot about

    1) oppressing gays, lesbians and the "gender confused"

    2) ravaging third world nations and raping their resources

    3) arming criminals with assault weapons

    4) forcing women into bondage

    5) reinstating slavery

    6) banning rock and roll

    Well, let's see. There's no way the Repubs would have inacted a drilling moratorium, so this would be impossible. Got that resolved. What's enxt?
