DamnYankees: Here's what I don't understand about all these "ZOMG HORRIBLE RECOVERY" things. Do people just not notice or care that this was a worldwide economic catastrophe, and the US has pretty much been the most successful in recovering? And that pretty much every other country has been MORE austere than us? Is there no lesson here?


The lesson is an old one: ODS infects everything these pathological fools look at.

Despite "austerity" being a complete and abject failure everywhere, they insist on it because it's what Obama doesn't want to do.

It is that simple, and the proponents are that simplistic.

In the meantime, Obama is in his second term now, Democrats hold a majority in the Senate, I think it's about time that they took some responsibility for the shiatty state of the Economy. Despite their promises it hasn't gotten better, and Pelosi stating that ending Subsidies on Oil isn't going to effect the "little people" is just crap.


They'll blame the Russians

I'll actually argue this. Obama pretty clearly does seem to want to do some austerity. He's pretty gung ho on increasing taxes and lowering spending - ie austerity.

Republicans keep on telling themselves he doesn't want to do it b/c it gives them a reason to keep on living.  Otherwise... there'd have been mass suicides the day after election day last year.  Raising taxes and offering a chained CPI, as well as the Independent Payment Advisory Board don't count.  Because socialism, or something.

Independent Payment Advisory Board, or as we call it in DC: why Republicans are against restraining government health care spending.  Also known as Obamacare.

You're right to criticize Obamacare.  For crying out loud, the Heritage Foundation came up with the idea.  That, by itself, should have warned the president away from it.

I mean, has the Heritage Foundation every been right about anything?

Not sure what you think "Contracting" means, but the GDP didn't go down in 2012. You may only be thinking of the last quarter which still didn't contract the economy for the year.

IMO, he (and Patty Murray and Reid) are trying to get cuts that will take effect when the economy comes back (ie, unemployment under 6.5%, like the Fed is targeting).  R's are claiming that if they don't get immediate, up front cuts they'll never get any cuts, and that this is the best they're going to get.  Basically, R's are trying to take a shiat in Obama's bed AND get him to sleep in in.  But since he sees what they're doing, they'll settle for just shiatting in his bed.  I feel that's a pretty apt description of the Republican style of governance right now.
 
2013-02-10 12:20:33 PM

Tell Me How My Blog Tastes: Authors like this prey on ignorance.  The miracle of "Reaganomics" was really just Paul Volcker's Fed cutting interest rates from about 20% in 1981 down to like 5% by 82-83.  Unemployment came down, inflation was beaten, and the economy grew.  Reagan could have done nothing except jack off in the Rose Garden for 4 years and the same thing would have happened.

Oh, and if you couldn't beat a sitting President who presided over the worst 5 years since the Great Depression, what does it say about you and the ideas you hold dear?  They must be pretty weak, tired and played-out, actuallyl


Pretty much this. You might remember when McCain suspended his campaign during Obama's first run to try to deal with the financial crisis. In what world did the most ineffective President in the history of Presidents acquire so much power that he could crash the economy before even being elected? Please: show your work kids.

True and fair. As Ezra Klein put it during the Fiscal Cliff crap:

Today's Republican Party thinks the key problem America faces is out-of-control entitlement spending. But cutting entitlement spending is unpopular and the GOP's coalition relies heavily on seniors. And so they don't want to propose entitlement cuts. If possible, they'd even like to attack President Obama for proposing entitlement cuts. But they also want to see entitlements cut and will refuse to solve the fiscal cliff or raise the debt ceiling unless there are entitlement cuts.  You can see why these negotiations aren't going well.

And wasn't Obama part of the Democrat controlled senate at the time?  Didn't he vote for Democrat budget resolutions in 2007 and 2008, even though republicans warned them they would damage the economy?  That's the way I remember it.
