Without Keynesian intervention the crisis would have been much worse.

    Obama hired many of the same financial specialists that were in the Bush Administration and attempted to correct flaws in the derivatives markets. Lobbyists convinced Congress that a watered down law was better than no law at all. Lobbyists convinced Congress to pass Dodd Frank in 2010.

    Are you related to WCH? I thought the thread was about executive time not Obama whom I didn't bring up yet now according to you and WCH I need to defend Obama for his negatives. Hijack someone else, I'm not interested.
    When I stop answering you, there's a reason.......repeat, When I stop answering you, there's a reason.

    Re: Executive Time

    Mick the Quick sounds like he has thrown in the towel on WH leakers. I don't blame him. Expecting to see a story on the brand of tissue on the roll in Trump's Royal throne room any day now.

    Just to remind, the degree of leaking out of any WH is a direct reflection on WH staffers and the degree of respect they have for the President. Care to take a guess as to where this WH staff is in that regard? Care to offer an opinion on how much respect this particular President has earned?

    So Obama doubled the debt.
    It couldn't have been a tax cut and the initiation of two wars six years earlier.
    It couldn't have been the revenue lost by the worst recession since the Great Depression.

    Meaning no disrespect, you need to hit the books, and please try to look at Obama more objectively.

    Regarding Trump, historians are not going to be kind to him.

    Obama raised taxes, cut the military and didn't have the war costs Bush did. Why are blaming everyone but Obama on his liberal spending policies?

    Obama absolutely did have the war costs, bush did not even have the wars on the books. One of the first things obama did was to add the wars onto our debt and deficit...

    A couple of months after Obama actually took office the stock market finally bottomed out at around sixty five hundred, down from over twelve thousand while all the pundits raved about the Bush administration's economy. The one where Bush was borrowing from china to pay for his wars and when the house of cards started falling, so did the markets. Jobs, hundreds of thousands a month gone. Banking ruined, the economy shot, car manufacturers on the brink of extinction. After four years, the stock market was back to around twelve thousand saving a boat load of people's IRA's. Yeah, that Obama, worst ever.
    Yeah, the dimwits squealing about how Obama was the worst ever are unanimous Bush 2 voters who never managed to build the gumption or intellectual honesty to compare Bush’s handling of the economy with Obama’s.

    Typing what Rush jackhammered into their brains and self-heating their cushions with farts are the most intellectually taxing things that they will do this month.
