i think he originally set out to write a book on how to fail upwards but he failed at that.

How do you turn the phrase "tax cuts for the rich" into a book?

I did OK under Clinton.
My savings doubled during Bush.
I have lost over 80% of my savings under Obama.

I'm not sure how to interpret that other than I hope I have enough left to eat lunch after the next President.

You managed doubling your savings over the decade of near-zero market growth, but lost 80% of it in the time the DOW went up 50%?

How on earth did you manage that?

The sad thing is that you KNOW you're doing it. You KNOW it's dishonest. But you don't have anything other than your faith that Democrats are bad and Republicans are good. But, like the Catholic Church and protecting pedophiles, you are willing to take all kinds of liberties with truth because of a perceived greater good.

I feel sorry for you.
 
2012-05-17 12:20:07 AM  
No, he's just holding the graph upside down.

That's what he gets for investing in Blockbuster.

Well, obviously. The graph has the word "Democraps" on it for fark's sake. I think the point still holds, President Bush did plenty to ensure that unnatural growth occurred during his time in office. He stood by and watched one of the greatest bubbles in the modern era grew to the point where it self destructed. Who else can claim a term filled with such irrational exuberance?

Even though his passing accuracy wasn't good enough to write a book about.

same for Bush.

Yawn.

You're putting me to sleep over here.

There already is a book about Bush's economic growth theories. Naomi Klein wrote it. The Shock Doctrine, It's quite good.

Well of course Sean Hannity gets a signed copy.

Part of me really wants to think the cartoonist knows what he made is full of crap and he's just doing it to fleece gullible people.
 
2012-05-17 12:36:37 AM  
Half of the conservatives on Fark don't believe he did anything wrong.

They'd vote for him again if they could.

Then you look at the "ConservativeDailyNews.com" and realize it would be way too brilliant.

Arkanaut: 52 out of 96 kinda sucks.


He was handed the Clinton Recession and it was compounded by the 9/11 attacks that no one saw coming. So the first two years in office don't count. And the Demoncraps took over the congress in 2006 so the last two don't count either since their socialist plots created uncertainty in the market which reduced economic output. so he only had 48 months that he can really claim as his own. And all of that time was growth.

I know people who would pee themselves laughing at that.

"HAHAHAHAHA! He was a community organizer. And community and communist kind of sound the same! What a loser!"

Yeah, I don't get it either.
