    Re: Would you drive the country into another recession...

    Here is what you have to realize; both sides are playing us. We all come onto this insignificant forum and debate these issues like we know what we are all talking about but in reality, none of us know seriously how much of a game this is to certain democrats and much of the republican party. Why do you think more republicans typically get second terms than democrats? Because they are much better at playing the game. Obama however is incredibly good at the game so we will see what happens I suppose.

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    You don't need to have evidence to have an opinion.

    An assumption is an opinion that is trying to masquerade itself as a fact.

    A premise is an opinion looking for facts to give it validity.

    This kind of makes me hope that he won't get re-elected, just so I can watch you eat those words in a couple years.

    The recession didn't start with Obama.

    Don't worry, I'm sure even if he loses the ultraconservatives will have no problem blaming him for their continuing troubles. Don't you know Bill Clinton was responsible for 9/11?
    For: legalizing drugs, gay marriage, abortion, guns, universal health care, public sector jobs, nuclear power, free education, progressive taxation

    Ultraconservative is some kinda code-word, amiright? I bet they're like TPers, only worse. Who are they, and are they as out-there as ultraliberals? Clinton was as much responsible as any other pres or CIA chief or other bigdog who failed to see the writing on the wall and act sufficiently. Shoulda captured/killed that dude a l0ng time ago, crap was well outa control and pretty damn obvious. Read: moderates.

    Was curious since some GOP politicians seem to think keeping Obama from being elected again is their top political priority.
    the reason that making Obama a one term president is so we can avoid later recessions, depressions, and debt crises. To paraphrase:"It's the policies, stupid."

    If, tomorrow, Obama was born-again and came out, endorsed the Ryan Plan, ordered his executive officials to dismantle Obamacare, started talking about individual ownership in Social Security, moved towards free trade, moved to limit abortion, and got rid of his artificial withdrawal date in Afghanistan, I would vote for him over a Republican Presidential Candidate that did not do these things.

    Respectfully, Our gov't was originally structured to guard against the worst in people. This was not just an assumption, but a historical, sociological constant going back 12k years.... or more. When wealth and power are involved, history has shown us that it's best to assume the worst and be vigilant against it. Adding parties into the mix increases this likelihood by orders of magnitude.

    He didn't eat his words when McCain lost... won't happen here...

    After five years of correcting BM, happy to pass the torch. It's an endless and thankless job, but putting down the talking points of the week as parroted by BM is an important job. Less to do with him, and more to do with properly informing others with solid, cited (from non-partisan sources) information.

    It does not matter which president is in office, nor which party in power. The recession cycle is planned, and not by politicians. It is a symptom of the insane monetary and market system we have.

    FACT: During every severe downturn, the very wealthy increase their assets and holdings many times faster than they could otherwise.

    Within our current system, there are NO SOLUTIONS... only bandaids and splints to keep this circus marching along.

    That is the top political priority of the GOP, just like getting rid of Bush was a top priority of the Democrats.

    Both parties put their own interests ahead of anything else. Always have, and always will.
