Help people or try to make money. Man, that IS a tough call.

Shaggy_C: 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.


Then so far Obama is 0 for 0. We will see how he does next term.
And Clinton is not responsible for the "Clinton Recession" either because Republicans.

But you DID vote for him twice.


what, vote for Gore or Kerry??? You're Kidding, Right???

Even Bush's good was bad. Historically bad.

"between the end of the 2001 recession (2001Q4) and the peak of that expansion (2007Q4), the U.S. economy experienced the worst economic expansion of the post-war era." Link, .pdf

I am looking forward to seeing Romney on a stage next to Obama trying to convince America that Bush's economic policies will work this time.

It is reported that Obama is worth $10 million, so now he is making money and not helping people... anyone see where they put the ironic tag???

It takes him a whole book to write "Don't put me or anyone who thinks I'm smart in charge?"

Didn't you get the memo? Helping your community is only for losers who couldn't make it in a more lucrative field. That's why teachers and social workers are such assholes.

The Green Manalishi: Sabyen91: Mildot: [www.conservativedailynews.com image 590x421]
Holy crap, that is bad.

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.


It means that although Obama's unusual background might suggest he choose a Communist career path, instead he chose Community Organizing. An unlikely path which he carried through to the height of the Presidency. The community organizer for the free world. It's very inspiring.

Obama is not making any money as President. Zero. All of it is donated to charity. You know, helping people.

Why is he writing a book about this? If he supposedly knows so much...shouldn't he be doing something about this? What is the average reader in Borders going to do with his amount of knowledge. This whole thing is weird.
 
2012-05-17 01:00:44 AM  
If you buy this book voodoo will make the ink will trickle all over your fingers. I hope there's enough supply for the demand. Wouldn't want him to become a lafferstock.

he was a much better president than the one we have now, so bash him. Dumb farkers lead the way.

He's writing a book for the same reason they all write books. So conservative pundits and websites can buy up crates of them and give them out to the rubes they preach to. Hell, if Palin can do it, Dubya can.

After all, he ran a total of zero profitable businesses, traded Sammy Sosa from the Rangers, and launched a trillion dollar tax-payer funded trip to the desert, also known as "Operation: Daddy Hug Me."

Why shouldn't we listen to his advice when it comes to economics?

If he's so communisty and bad at economics, how did me make so much......

Does that mean he DID take the economics door and not the community organizing? If he did than why are people..... oh sonofabit.....

vygramul: Dufus: 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?


I call it The Evil Republican Portfoliotm:
At the start of a republican presidents term, you buy stock in his top 10 contributors. I was up 300% by the end of Ws term.

Doesn't work with Democrats. I haven't figured out how to make money off of Teacher's Unions.

Cut taxes, spend trillions, leave the next sucker with the bill. Repeat about five thousand times. Mention some garbage about the free market and things trickling down. I guarantee the Young Republicans will buy every copy on campus.

And yes, of course there will be pictures. How can a book by W not have pictures?

Buy a teacher's union, assume massive debt, collect management fees, fire all the teachers and steal their pension funds, force the union to declare bankruptcy.

Obama donated all of his Nobel Prize money to charity and only about $245,000 altogether last year.

If the Publican had gone to Vietnam and was awarded a Purple Heart while the Democrat got into a champagne unit, got grounded for not taking his physical, and then went AWOL and got away with hit because of his dad's connections, you Publicans would be shouting it from the the rooftops.

It will be called "The Golden Age of the Ownership Society."

It will be about how people won't need jobs because they'll make all their money flipping houses.

Chapter 1 should involve start-up costs. Probably selling jewelry to Cash4Gold and a series of balloon mortgages.

Actually they kinda did that in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. Fired 7,500 teachers.

2012-05-17 01:58:39 AM  
I've said it for a long time. George Bush Jr was the Colonel Cargill of presidents:

""Colonel Cargill was so awful a marketing executive that his services were much sought after by firms eager to establish losses for tax purposes. His prices were high, for failure often did not come easily. He had to start at the top and work his way down, and with sympathetic friends in Washington, losing money was no simple matter. It took months of hard work and careful misplanning. A person misplaced, disorganized, miscalculated, overlooked everything and open every loophole, and just when he thought he had it made, the government gave him a lake or a forest or an oilfield and spoiled everything. Even with such handicaps, Colonel Cargill could be relied on to run the most prosperous enterprise into the ground. He was a self-made man who owed his lack of success to nobody."

― Joseph Heller, Catch-22"

Please, by all means give me your professional assessment of Dr. Ayers's authorial contributions to educational theory, policy and practice. I'll be especially interested in your analysis of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge.

Can't wait for George W's next books, "How to Avoid Unnecessary Wars" and "Effective Preperation and Responses to Natural Disasters"
