For anybody who has been through a calculus course, this actually paints in Obama's favor, but don't let something like math get in the way of partisanship.


Oh and W's max unemployment was 7.2 with an average of 5.3. What's Obama's?

BUSH'S FAULT!

That chart is bullshiat because it shows the monthly changing rate, not the actual unemployment figures, but hey, we know that you're not too bright, Dinki.

*facepalm* You realize why the presentation of that graph is completely intellectually dishonest, right?

It's statistics, do you speak it?


That's not statistics. That's using an alternative presentation to make something seem worse than it is. While it is also factual it is highly selectively factual and presented in a misleading fashion and thus completely invalid for the purposes of this thread.

The fact that it is "statistics" doesn't mean it is correct, in other words, because its methodology is shakey and its presentation would be disqualified under most standards.

HakunaMatata: randomjsa:

As opposed to what has happened under Obama?

1. Elect democrat
2. Run up more deficit in 3 1/2 years than the Republican ran up in 8
3. Change message to 'deficits don't matter no matter how much we cried about them before'
4. Profit

A good chunk of the defecit you're pinning on Obama is the costs of the war(s) on terror, which Bush just magically left out of his totals.

Also, when exactly did the economy/housing markets crash and when did the unemployment crisis begin? It was before Obama was elected, let alone sworn in. Face it, your team burned down the house and now spend all your time biatching that the other team isnt clearing the ashes fast enough.


When someone claims bush left the cost of wars out if deficit calculations, you can tell they are retarded. Budget is the term you seek. Obama hasn't had a budget in 3 years to compare to bush.

Wow, so we mustn't have spent any money in those 3 years with no budget right? How fiscally responsible!

Calculus to show the change in velocity, or to show the area under (above) the curve?

You know what cumulative means right?

And the fact that it shows that the rate of jobs losses slowed down once Obama was president was completely lost on you huh?

I thought you were just dishonest, but maybe you really are this stupid.

You mean kind of like showing a graph that begins during the employment loss Bush years and doesnt show any of the employment growth years?

MaudlinMutantMollusk: It pisses me off to no end that frikkin Fartbama had the nerve to veto every damned one of those dozens of jobs bills Congress cranked out

/oh, wait...

/oh, wait...

Reid has kept over 30 house passed bills off the senate floor that involve the economy. Reid is the one vetoing.


That would mean he has kept 30 REPUBLICAN bills off the floor that will make the economy worse. He knows the
Republican game is to sack the economy to ruin Obama's chance at re-election.

wingnut396: The Numbers: Obama being the 'Hope and Change' President, I'm sure we can expect his second term agenda to include:

Ending Bush tax cuts -- Tried, Blocked by Republicans
Ending Patriot Act -- Don't recall him saying this. Both sides generally love this POS.
Closing Gitmo -- Tried, Blocked by Republicans who shiat their pants because terrorists would focus on America... like they couldn't before
Prosecution of those involved in torture Don't recall him saying this, possible, but it they would have gone it would be after useless mid level yes men anyway.
Decent health care reform -- Tried, Blocked by Republicans due to socialist death panels, socialist taxes and extra socialism.

Perhaps he might even get round to implementing his 'sunlight before signing' promise. Somehow I doubt it though.

Obama is not perfect by any means. But many of his failures have been due to have needing to COMPRIMISE (a sign of weakness to Republicans) with a group of unmovable jackholes. These jackholes have as an agenda 'If'n he's a for it, I'm against it'. Even as a minority in the Senate before midterms, he had to face them fillibustering damn near everything that he supported. After midterms he now faces a Republican controlled House, so this make things even worse for him trying to get his agenda through. This will continue into his next term.


Not only will the House stay in the loving hands of Boehner and Cantor, there's a very good chance of the Senate going over to the Republicans putting Mitch McTurtle in charge of the agenda, in which case the next term will advance none of Obama's agenda whatsoever and will consist of the Democrats and Obama frantically filibustering and vetoing the GOP's raving lunacy.

I think that's somewhat over-optimistic. More likely they'll let each piece of lunacy become law, then put out a statement indicating how much they disagree with it.

Then maybe we can get all these tax breaks vetoed.

cman: The President has very little to no power over the jobs market. Stop blaming him for shiat he aint responsible for.


Agreed. When I talk about implimenting *MY* solution to our economic woes, I often say 'Only if I was Evil Overlord; the POTUS doesn't have enough power'.

farkityfarker: IronTom: 8%+ unemployment, is too high.

$4.00+ gas is too high.

President Obama's Second Term Agenda = Mitt Romney. Just saying. :D
 
2012-04-13 12:27:17 AM
Is anyone with me in saying that all politicians are equally full of shiat delusional wackjobs who think that writing magical words on a piece of paper changes reality?

How unpatriotic of me. . .

And speaking of kool aid, I'm surprised you all haven't choked on yours yet (new window).
 
2012-04-13 07:38:47 AM
Obama's second-term agenda is Mitt Romney not being President. That's good enough for me.

Gig103: He was waiting until the Republican candidate was more obvious. Because if it had been Santorum, his re-election plan was is just going to be "I'm not a nutjob."
