MaudlinMutantMollusk: If the sunnuvabiatch hadn't vetoed every damned one of those job stimulus bills Congress sent him, his record might be a little better


I think it was when he ordered all the state governments to fire as many teachers and road repair crews as possible and break their unions immediately or he'd send the Black Helicopters to do it for 'em. That's what did it.

That and shutting down the entire defense industry, nationalizing gun manufacturers and closing 'em, firing all the troops, and then turning the Pentagon into a roller rink for The Sekrit Mooslim Brotherhood.

If we only knew he was secret Russian agent. Oh if we only knew.

Damn.

I KNEW I should have double-checked which bubble I filled in. I wanted to go to that roller rink but I signed on for The Sekrit Muslin Brotherhod instead of The Sekrit Mooslim Brotherhood.

Oh well. At least I can still get a free gay marriage abortion on Thursdays with the membership card.

Upvoted for the simple fact that this was downvoted for nothing else but criticizing Obama

That being said, as I always say in these kinds of threads, Obama is not responsible for the current economic crisis. The President isnt some dictator with a big button that says "Press to Create Jobs". The President is like a bolt holding the driver side door on a car that we call the economy

Clint Eastwood said it best at the GOP convention: "When someone isn't doing the job, we've got to let him go." The sooner Mr. Obama the jobs bill blocking historically obstructionist Republicans in Congress and the Senate go, the better off our economy will be.

Remember, folks: Obama is responsible for the jobs lost in January 2009 even though the BLS survey is conducted in the week containing the 12th of the month and he wasn't inaugurated until the 20th. It doesn't take much more stretching to make him responsible for the millions of jobs lost in the end of 2008. After all, the market was just reacting to the thought that a secret Muslim fascist Commie would become president and destroy the country.

How are his job numbers worse than the previous administration which had negative total job growth? It seems the Republican narrative to the American people is: "President Obama didn't clean up our mess fast enough, so elect us again and we promise it will work this time." I also find it strange that it seems like the only two Republican presidents ever were Reagan and Lincoln hoping people will forget all the other guys. The only reason you guys have Reagan is George H.W. Bush inherited his economic crash. What do Herbert Hoover, Reagan/GHW Bush, and GW Bush have in common? Their economic plans destroyed the economy.

I've searched and I can't find ANY evidence that WaPo FactCheckers have said the statement. A bunch of conservative websites have quoted WaPo FactCheck of making the statement, but I can't find it anywhere. I did find the statement first made by Sen. Barrasso (R-Wyoming)

There's nothing to talk about here. There are few valid criticisms within. I could take it apart for you, but it's basically another typical op/ed piece that's been common this election season - start with a couple truths, salt the ground with lies, and shoved on as pablum.

No he was completely correct and you are full of it. Running around screaming "troll! troll! waaaah! troll!" because somebody dared express an opinion or thought you don't approve of has gotten well past the point of being completely pathetic on fark.This place is starting to border on the level of 4chan when it comes to Little Boy Who Cried Troll. Running around screaming "shut up! shut up!" at anyone or anything that says negative things about Obama doesn't make you look good either.

Worst president in history for deficit, worst president since WW2 for jobs. In 2004 liberals were HOWLING about how horrible Bush had been for jobs and now all they can do is whine when people point out that Obama has been much worse. On every single solitary level Obama's first term has been worse than Bush's first term and the same people who ran around wondering how on earth Bush got reelected can hardly wait to vote for Obama again.

Have you ever noticed how all the bad stats on the recovery end with some variant of the phrase "since the Great Depression?" And, when the crisis happened in '08, the same experts kept saying it was the worst economic downturn since...I can't remember. Donald Trump's third bankruptcy, maybe?

Bush came into office for his first term with a decent unemployment rate and tanked it. Obama came into office in the middle of the biggest decline since the 80s, and biggest economic recession since WWII, and got it back to about where it was before he took office. There is a difference between coming into office off of a a boom or bust, and comparing it to where it was when you leave, these things are not the same. Taking something good and tanking it......is not the same or better than taking something horrific and getting it close to respectability again.

Saw a derpy friend post this article on facebook and decided against trying to explain the retardation last night. Seriously though, how does it make any sense to look purely at the number of jobs at any time without looking at where things are trending? Obama took office with the economy losing 750,000 jobs a month. Things stabilized and now we're very slowly digging out of the hole with 100,000 added this month. That's a net positive difference in job growth of 850,000 per month. That's how much better the economy is doing than it was, 850,000. The fact that we're only slowly recovering tells us just how dire the situation was. Unless we ignore that part, like the pile of feces that wrote this article.

These right wing articles keep proving that trickle down economics does not work. Companies are reporting record profits... stock markets have double since March of 2009...

Speaking of unemployment rates... Hell of a job Bush....

Bush
1/20/2001: 4.2%
1/20/2009: 7.8%
Unemployment Rate Change: 85.71% increase

Obama
1/20/2009: 7.8%
Currently: 8.1%
Unemployment Rate Change: 3.85% increase

Golly gee, you're right! Let's recap a highlight from each:

Bush's first term:
9/11/2001 - presided over the worst terrorist attack on home soil in the history of our country orchestrated by bin Laden and al Qaeda, killing 3000 Americans.

Obama's first term:
5/2/2011 - bin Laden gets taken out by navy seals at the order of Obama.

The first one was TOTALLY better than the second one. How do you get enough oxygen with your head so far up your ass?

You guys haven't factored in how many folks are just giving up and leaving the workforce. Most estimate 300k to 500k just giving up each month. The true number of employed aren't anywhere near what they were when Obama took office. Bush was a bum but at least pull your heads out of the sand about Obama.
