TIKIMAN87: bdub77: Let me summarize:

"Look at everything I did from 2001-2008...and do the opposite."

Not really.

Just what the liberals in congress did in that time frame. Ya know.. forcing banks to give loans to anyone who can't afford it causing the housing bubble to burst. Basically just giving away fromm money.


Forcing? Forcing. Forcing?!? Forcing. You really beleive that banks were forced by the government to give out 400K loans to people who didn't qualify?

Please listen to this someday. It will make you think the problem is more complicated than that.

is this a new threadshiatting troll? i'm not familiar with this one.

Yeah, he's a really blatant troll. Not even a "might be just a really right wing person" possibility.


I keep him around because he's cute. He's a harmless troll, kind of dumb, provides funny pictures so I can see what right wing cartoonists are up to.

Freddie Mae -- Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac -- I see the heads who are here; I want to thank you all for coming -- (laughter) -- have committed to provide more money for lenders. They've committed to help meet the shortage of capital available for minority home buyers.

Fannie Mae recently announced a $50 million program to develop 600 homes for the Cherokee Nation in Oklahoma. Franklin [Raines], I appreciate that commitment. They also announced $12.7 million investment in a condominium project in Harlem. It's the beginnings of a series of initiatives to help meet the goal of 5.5 million families. Franklin told me at the meeting where we kicked this office, he said, I promise you we will help, and he has, like many others in this room have done.

Freddie Mac recently began 25 initiatives around the country to dismantle barriers and create greater opportunities for homeownership. One of the programs is designed to help deserving families who have bad credit histories to qualify for homeownership loans. ...

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.

Like I said, I did OK under Clinton and had a good starting point. I had 54 months of nearly uninterupted growth without a major "correction" under Bush when everything did great for me. The last year of his term was bad and (through no control of mine) my retirement was locked into a fund family where I could not remove it.

After Obama took office the crash continued to the lowest DOW in years. Then we had 28 months before a correction, but I was starting my recovery from a much lower point than I started the Bush years. My medical insurance went through the roof further preventing adding to my savings.

Then we had the next "correction" and things dropped again. I have been able to slowly remove the funds from being locked down because they have met the maturity and now I am doing more self directed saving and investing.

That being said, over 95% time President Obama has a speech the DOW drops at least 30 points. Looking back at history, that percentage is higher than any other President that I have found. All the others were about 50/50 on whether it dropped after a speech. Carter, Reagan, GHW, Clinton, GW - heck, even Nixon. Obama and the market just do not play well together.

Really.

The good ol' boy was an act. With the cowboy costumes and brush clearing. The dumb part came naturally.

Anyone notice that every President in recent memory ages drastically? Even Obama who is relatively young, looks old as hell. That job ages people. Except Bush. I think it's the "not giving a fark" factor.

I don't blame Bush for 9/11 (I blame him for everything we did in response for 9/11 but I don't blame him for the event itself) but just imagine for a moment if something like that happened during Obama's Presidency.

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%?

Tax cuts.


No, you miss the complex relationships involved in Bush's economic policies. Tax cuts was just the most visible, you forgot gut regulation, start two wars, increase the size of the Federal government to unprecedented levels, appoint cronies to key positions, hand out no bid contracts worth hundreds of billions of dollars, send hundreds of billions of dollars to war zones with no oversight, and increase federal deficit spending.

tenpoundsofcheese: Tim Tebow won games.
Even though his passing accuracy wasn't good enough to write a book about.

same for Bush.


What did Bush "win"? He didn't "win" either of the two wars he handed off to Obama, he didn't "win" with the collapsed economy he handed off to Obama, he didn't "win" the hearts and minds of either of the countries he invaded.

See, this is what happens when you let the cheerleader play QB. The worst part is that not only did he get put in the game, but it was during the second half of the championship, where he squandered the lead that his predecessor had built up.

2012-05-17 11:04:46 AM  

Goodfella: 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"


I fancy him as more of a General P P Peckem myself. Relies on bad information to make his decisions, delegates incessantly, is much more dedicated to style over substance, and is in constant competition with his peers while actual crises surrounded his administration.

"'Sir, I have an ex-Sergeant Wintergreen on your other telephone. He's been trying to reach you all morning.'

'General, I can't get Wintergreen,' Colonel Cargill shouted, 'His line is busy.' General Peckem was perspiring freely as he lunged for the other telephone.

'Wintergreen!'

'Peckem, you son of a biatch-'

'Wintergreen, have you heard what they've done?'

'-what have you done, you stupid bastard?'

'They put Scheisskopf in charge of everything!' Wintergreen was shrieking with rage and panic. 'You and your goddam memorandums! They've gone and transferred combat operations to Special Services!'

'Oh, no,' moaned General Peckem. 'Is that what did it? My memoranda? Is that what made them put Scheisskopf in charge? Why didn't they put me in charge?'

'Because you weren't in Special Services any more. You transferred out and left him in charge. And do you know what he wants? Do you know what the bastard wants us all to do?'

'Sir, I think you'd better talk to General Scheisskopf,' pleaded the sergeant nervously. 'He insists on speaking to someone.'

'Cargill, talk to Scheisskopf for me. I can't do it. Find out what he wants.' Colonel Cargill listened to General Scheisskopf for a moment and went white as a sheet. 'Oh, my God!' he cried, as the phone fell from his fingers. 'Do you know what he wants? He wants us to march. He wants everybody to march!'"

Mugato: What about the two utterly useless wars that he kept off the books, did those count?


All spending is stimulus, or so the demoncrap faithful told me...

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?


My best guess is he invested HEAVILY in those "premium mint coins" ...

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.


Jeeze your just a mess. Clinton was handed a recession too but he didn't just sit around whining about it.

The economy was already getting better in 1992 but the liberal MSM media wouldn't let any news out that might help bush's chances plus Perot split the Republican vote. The womanizer would never have been president with that historically low winning percentage in any other election.

Bwahahaha. You so crazy. Yeah Clinton got handed an economy that was poised to boom. It's just a coincidence that the dems got slaughtered 2 years later when the economy was still rotten.

Bob16: I was over a polling report a few weeks ago and saw that Bush is still getting blamed for today's rotten economy by almost a 2 to one margin. He's the Hoover of the 21st century.


Apparently you haven't been paying attention. Not paying attention to Bush's two wars that he kept off the books. Or his tax breaks for companies that outsource American jobs. Or his increase in defense spending after that little terrorist attack that happened under his watch that made an enormous amount of money for his Vice President.

And you also haven't been paying attention to the Republican congress who said flat out their intention to torpedo the economy for the sole purpose of getting Obama out of office.

That's a lot of lack of attention, man.

Aldon: Conservatives trying to re-write history in their favor? It's what they do, have you seen conservapedia?

Why don't stupid liberals and moderates realize Willard Mitt Romney SAVED THE US AUTO INDUSTRY?
