    Please expound on this "do what was necessary".
    Our President is similar to an orchestra conductor. Here, at least, the musicians try to work as one.
    President Obama has to face the conservatives, who prefer to try to complete the wrecking of America.

    What happens when 11% of your economy vanishes?
    I don't know where you get 11%, but raising taxes and cutting spending would not have caused a depression like the one the U.S. faced in the 1930s. Here is an article where current Fed Chariman, Ben Bernanke, explains how the fed turned a recession into a depression:

    Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    2. Woodrow "let's set back racial relations 50 years" Wilson.

    3. Ronald "I fund terrorists, deficit spend on military ventures while pretending to be fiscally consersvative, and overthrowings democratic governments while trumpeting freedom,"Reagan.

    4. Herbert "maybe if I ask really nicely, businesses will stop being jerks," HOover.

    5. James "I can't prevent states from rebellion on my watch" Buchanan.

    6. Rutherford "I'm gonna throw blacks under the bus to win an election" B. Hayes.

    Alone no. But starting a massive trade war when the US was more intergrated into world trade then we were circa 2002 did.

    Barack Obama has made it plain that he is somewhat of agreement with, Black liberation theology, and some other anti-American views.Simply by the way he has conducted his administration.

    Why would you not take that seriously? I listed well respected economists to backup my assertion. You said economists to back up your claim. And my argument was simply that the Federal Reserve caused a depression. I said nothing about who got us out of it so I'm not sure why that would be relevant.
