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?

You're exactly right.

The Democrats SHOULD accept some blame for the economic collapse...because they stupidly accepted Republican economic claims uncritically.  Likewise, if the president accepts the GOP's claims that austerity is the best path out of our current predicament, then he deserves part of the blame for the recession that will surely result from the adoption of Republican doctrine.

The president should be smart enough to know that Republican policies lead to economic dead-ends.  If he adopts them anyway, YES he deserves a great deal of blame.

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.

udhq: LargeCanine: udhq: LargeCanine: This became Obama's economy the moment he signed the first Stimulus bill promising that unemployment, then at less than 7%, would not go above 8%.

Its pretty funny listening to Democrats throw out all kinds of desperate excuses blaming Republicans for the current crappy economy.

Nothing you can say or do is ever going to change the fact that the economic policies of the Republican Party caused our economy to go into the deepest recession in 50 years.

It should be telling that the best you can do is to argue that the democrats aren't cleaning up your mess fast enough.

Nah. The economy would have recovered years ago if it were not for Obama's policies. The next President is going to have to clean up OBAMA'S mess, economic, diplomatic, and administrative.

What do you mean "would have recovered"?  The economy is experiencing healthy, sustained growth for the first time in a decade under Obama's policies.

The economy sustained a devastating contraction under the policies that you're advocating.

The US has never in history wielded more diplomatic clout than it does now.  Your fantasies about American decline are just not supported by reality.



The economy has been experiencing anemic growth which is often lower than the rate of population growth, high inflation, and high official and even higher real unemployment. Much of the "growth" is really just government deficit spending and is not real productivity and will have to be repaid someday.

Obama hurts the poor with regressive policies like Quantitative Easing in which the government invents money out of nothing, thus reducing the value of each dollar. This hurts the poor because their income and money is worth less, and they have little in the way of tangible assets. Affluent people have tangible assets which increase in price, hedging against inflation. Thus, every time Geithner massively increases the money supply, he is taxing the poor.

Diplomatically, we have alienated our allies and are held in contempt my the Russians and Chinese. Our embassies are being targeted. Friendly governments can't rely on us and are making deals/alliance predicated on American weakness. Obama has been judged by the international community as being feckless and weak.

I didn't advocate any particular policy, and saying that I advocated politics leading to contraction is simply you projecting. I never said anything about America being in decline. You are trying to put words into my mouth - building a straw man to knock down. Of course, you knew that, you are just trying to change the subject from Obama.

Bush Signs 2009 Budget Resolution

A continuing resolution is not a budget resolution, crazy.

Point of order, why do you think the President must sign continuing resolutions and not budget bills?

That's the way the budget process is structured in Budget Act of 1974, which gave Congress more control over the budget.

Seeing as how Congress has more control over the budget, shouldn't the democrat Congress elected in 2006 share some of the blame for the economic collapse in 2008?  The way Libs tell it, Bush was entirely to blame because it happened when he was president, and democrats in Congress (including Obama) were entirely blameless.  Once Obama is elected, now the president cannot be blamed for anything during his presidency, but instead, republicans in Congress are entirely to blame.  Where is the sense in that?

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.

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

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.

SkinnyHead: 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.


That's because you remember sh*t that never happened.

This thread is about how Obama made  muck4doogo completely insane.

tenpoundsofcheese: Let's see.  I wonder if anything else happened in 2007, like the Dems getting control of the House and all that yummy overspending.


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.

beantowndog: This is the worst thing Obama has done since Pearl Harbor.


I don't know, blacklisting all those colleagues of his was pretty bad.

Oh, wait...that was Reagan!!

muck4doo: NewportBarGuy: muck4doo: At least now our dear leader kills US citizens with drones!

Much like I feel about the abortion debate... why don't you adopt those misguided people and protect them from the evil drones. I'm sure you'd get along swimmingly.

Problem solved.

Nah, just kill them all like dear leader does. I'm sure you approve.


Now, that's an intelligent post!

MaudlinMutantMollusk: It's just math Republicans do to make themselves feel better


Republicans can't do math. They should just accept that and move on to paste eating.
