In that case, it's just the second statement that's true: you get
the majority of your information from television news broadcasts.
Clearly you don't know anything about the economy except what
you're told on TV.
I remember going from service station to service station trying to get
gas in the mid 70's and some of them were hording it for their
commercial customers. My brother in law was complaining about a federal
order for a wage freeze for ALL businesses. 1971-1975, Obama Sr. was The
President at the time and the youngsters don't remember that one. ^_^

erited comes even close to what happened to the economy in 2008.
I was there and I say the economic mess was arguably just as
bad. Obama did not have double digit inflation, a prime rate of 21%,
and Tbonds at 16%, did he? That gave him and the Fed a lot
of flexibility to respond to the crisis. And unemployment hit 10% in
economic crisis Reagan had to deal with.
Carter never said "malaise" (you're the one who put it in quotes).
How could Obama be anti business when they're making record profits
and Wall Street has never done better?
Yeah, he didn't say malaise, he just said the American people had a
"crisis of confidence" that was a grave threat to the country. In
words, he blamed the American people for his screw ups. Sounds like
another president that keeps blaming others for his actions.
Obama is anti business because he's bitched about businesses from
insurance companies to oil companies. He blocked oil drilling in the
He's raised taxes on small business. He's burdened business with
at the worst possible time. He blocked the new Boeing plant in SC, a
plant offering thousands of new jobs in the middle of an economic
crisis. Obviously Obama doesn't think the economy is that bad, or
he wouldn't be doing any of those things. And now he wants to raise
taxes on business and individuals AGAIN. He's engaged in class
constantly like the true socialist that he is. That is indeed an anti
president. And the poor economy, with piss poor growth is a direct
result of what Obama and the libs are doing. Why should business
owners want to invest and take risk when they don't now how Obama
and the libs are gonna screw them next?
For christ's sake, get your head out of wingnut radio and look up
some of the facts and get it right?

The facts are correct. GDP growth 3 or 4 years into the Reagan
was 4 to 7%. Under Obama it's 1 to 2%. With Reagan's policies, we
creating 300,000 to 400,000 jobs a month. One month we hit 1.2mil.
Obama, we're lucky to see 120,000. Last month it was a mere 80,000.
it's still Bush's fault from 5 years ago, or better yet Reagan's from
ago. That despite the fact that Obama got the $800bil stimulus he
Despite the fact that he got Obamacare which he said over and over was
critical for a strong economy. Despite the fact that he got his tax
on those making $400K and up.
Oh, and you gotta love this. Take a look at what tax rate Obama just
paid. He earned over $700K, yet his federal tax rate was just 18%.
THAT according to him is unfair. Isn't that exactly what he and his
lib buddies have been bitching about? Yet, it's apparently OK when
he does it, otherwise he could have just sent in more.....

You don't see it but you definitely fit in the one color of kool-aid

read what you write and then compare it with any of the right wing
talking heads there is absolutely no difference. Like the polar opposite
of you you are absolutely sure there is only one way with no compromise.
So you get so cranked up listening to whomever you listen to that you
can't contain the knowledge that you are right so you need to let
everyone know by posting for some reason in a home repair newsgroup.
And predictably the wingnuts go through a chain of you are wrong no you
are wrong insults at each other because there can never be a meeting of
the minds of extremists.
I think that accurately sums it all up.
