Codenamechaz: then you'd have a tough time saying "Yes" to that question.
balloot: The thing is, he's telling the truth. Obama took over on a severe downward slide in the economy, and it took a solid year to simply stop the bleeding. We're not quite back to pre-recession levels yet.With that being said, Dems probably should have a more politically palatable answer to this question. :)
Animatronik: the things is... word salad
Animatronik: the thing is, the Democrats are living in FANTASYLAND.You can't keep giving money back to your loyal voters when the country is deep in debt.I'm watching the Governor of Montana (D) on TV talking about how we need to get back to "budget surpluses" so he can give some money back to hard working voters. Not pay down debt, give some more money to voters. Its not about Ds and Rs on this issue, but as far as I can tell the Ds are much worse.If we keep electing people like this we will never pay down the debt and essentially younger generations will end up being wage slaves to older generations.
