    Which party is more responsible for the state economy?

    There is no option for Both Parties, because the question is which party is more responsible for the state of the economy?

    Re: Which party is more responsible for the state economy?

    Gotta agree. The government shouldn't be responsible for the economy, and burdening a political party is even worse because it lets the other party spend, spend, spend without restraint.

    E.g. Republicans = daddy state, Democrats = mommy state. Should we really need to instill traditional breadwinner roles in light of today's feminism?

    Talk about having your cake and eat it too, why don't we just enslave all men while we're at it?

    Both of these right wing parties are equally responsible...

    They're both responsible, but the most responsible for the bad economy are the consumers/banks/legislators/etc. involved in the housing bubble.

    I think corporations are responsible. Bad business decisions and we all have to live with them... I like a quote I heard from the movie Capitalism: A True Love Story. This guy said, "I understand bad business decisions were made, but I don't make business decisions. I make windows and doors."
    I'm coming to see that no matter what law we regulate, be it the stand your ground act, there is never an objective morally right answer to any morale question; in fact, since there are multiple objectively right answers to every moral question that leaves us with a lot of grey area and a lot of black area (not in the racial since).

    I never thought of it that way, but you're right.

    Re: Which party is more responsible for the state economy?

    It's hard to say which one is responsible, since you'd have to account for complex accounting measures spanning the last 50 years or so. In the short term, I'd say the Iraq War, which the Republicans insisted on having, and the Bush tax cuts (which were implemented during a time of war; so much for national sacrifice) has been the biggest drain because it was unnecessary. People may not like the stimulus plan and TARP, but at least there was some rational justification for that. The Iraq war was completely unnecessary and the tax cuts were a disgusting political move.

    Don't get me wrong, the Democrats are not blameless in this debacle. But if you are forcing me to choose, I must say the Republicans, in the short-term, have the most responsibility to bear.

    The current state right now is both. The Republican obstructionism to prevent any improvement in the economy prior to the election next year coupled with the hardening of Democrats to compromise after Obama's rejection is creating a gridlock that is awful for business. How we got here in the first place is more Republican than democrat and more Corporate Idiocy than Republican. And it's more Greenspan's easy money than Corporate idiocy.

    Democrat.

    With Republican as a close second.
