Because of the large deficits Mr. Bush bequeathed Mr. Obama – on Jan. 8, 2009, the C.B.O. projected a deficit for the year of $1.3 trillion that didn’t include any Obama policies – Congress was deeply reluctant to enact a stimulus larger than $787 billion, even though President Obama’s economic advisers thought that one at least twice as large was necessary to turn the economy around. The opposition of every Republican to the 2009 stimulus was a major factor in its inadequate size.

By way of analogy, suppose you go to your doctor with an illness. He correctly diagnoses it and prescribes the right medicine, but for some reason you are given a dosage only half as large as required. The medicine was enough to improve your condition, but not enough to cure you. You remain sick although you feel better and will remain so until you finally get a full dosage of the proper medicine or your body is able to cure itself, which might take years.

Note that in this analogy the medicine was properly prescribed; only the dosage was wrong. It would be incorrect to blame the medicine because you are still sick.

The Republican economists nevertheless blame the medicine itself for the failure of the economy to respond to President Obama’s prescription.

But it was Republican policies during the Bush administration that brought on the sickness and Republicans in Congress who have denied the economy an adequate dosage of the cure. Now they want to implicitly blame President Obama for causing the recession and the failure of stimulus to fix the problem, asserting that fiscal stimulus is per se ineffective.

There is a word for this: chutzpah.

Obama had a Dem congress for his first 2 years, and he still couldn't pass a budget.
Same reason as now. Google it. Easy enough to find on a non-right wing site.

Oh that's right, pointing out right wing racism makes me a racist.
If only that bit of wishful thinking would put a stop to it.....
Easy, Chief ... that last line was meant for those who pull the race card as an excuse for Da Bammy's incompetency. That card is very worn because it has been played and played and played and played ... get the idea?

I am sick to death,Of the whining feeble minded
lib clowns trying to find excuses for the lying
Admin we are currently suffering its utterly
insulting,and intellectually dishonest,shows
the mind set,principles or lack there of in
our immoral so called civil servants approach
to us,their employers? How can you scrutinize
Obamas wasted regime,and not be offended? so
we can all safely assume,the nation is split
into two distinct camps,those who are in the
life style of being deliberately hooked on
the Admins Drugs,or the independent hard
working camps of those who do not,refuse
to live entirely of the big Govts Teats.

After watching Chuckles The Clown Biden's performance in the vice presidential debate, I must urge my fellow Democrats to vote for the one man that can lead us out of this 4 year crisis, Mitt Romney.
